Robert Rosborough graduated summa cum laude from Yale in 1982 and from Stanford Law School in 1985. He practiced law at Pillsbury, Madison and Sutro (now Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman) in San Francisco for many years before becoming an elder and adult family mediator after caring for a parent with AIDS and then one with Alzheimer's, experiencing first-hand the innumerable attendant challenges and family conflicts.

His practice later expanded to other high-conflict areas involving long-standing relationships, such as partnerships and homeowner’s associations. He has served on the board of his own homeowner’s association for over half of the nearly 30 years he has been a member, many of those as President, and experienced first-hand the wide-range of issues that arise and what it takes to keep the peace. 

He received his initial training as a mediator through Community Boards in San Francisco, the first community mediation organization in the country and an organization for which he still volunteers. He also volunteers for the San Francisco Office of Citizen Complaints, mediating between the police and citizens who file complaints against them. 

He practices in Marin, San Francisco and throughout the Bay Area. He is a member of the Marin County Bar Association, the Bar Association of San Francisco, Integrative Mediation Bay Area and the Association for Dispute Resolution of Northern California. 

He is a runner, cyclist, occasional scuba diver, meditation teacher, avid reader, writer and classical pianist.
