Roberta Liebenberg '75
Senior Partner at Fine, Kaplan and Black, R.P.C.


“The education I received at Catholic University Columbus School of Law provided an invaluable foundation for my career.  My experience as an editor on the Law Review greatly enhanced my writing and analytical skills.  My law school experience gave me the knowledge, training, and confidence to succeed in the profession, and instilled in me the importance of giving back and contributing to the profession and society at large.”

She focuses her practice on class actions, antitrust and complex commercial litigation, and white collar criminal defense. She is a graduate of the University of Michigan and the Catholic University Columbus School of Law, magna cum laude, where she was the Notes Editor of the Law Review. Thereafter, she served as a law clerk for the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.

Ms. Liebenberg served as one of trial counsel for the plaintiff class in In re Urethanes [Polyether Polyols] Antitrust Litigation, MDL No. 1616 (D. Kan.).
