Robert Michael Rinder was born on May 31, 1978, into a middle-class Jewish family in London, U.K. His maternal ancestry goes back to the Russian Empire. He is black from his father’s side.
His grandfather was sent to a concentration camp during the Second World War, and following Germany’s defeat, the British Jewish community asked their government to help the prisoners of the camp. Hence, his grandfather came to the U.K. and settled in London.
His father worked as a cab driver in London, while his mother owned and ran a publishing company. However, his parents did not get along, and they divorced when he was quite young. His mother, Angela Cohen, raised him singlehandedly.
He was raised in a highly liberal environment and grew up embracing acting. He had aspired to become an actor ever since he was a kid. He joined the National Youth Theatre when he was still young and ended up receiving training in acting for many years.
Meanwhile, he also pursued his academics at the Osidge Primary School. He later joined the Queen Elizabeth’s School for Boys, from where he pursued his high-school graduation.
While at the university, Robert Rinder befriended Benedict Cumberbatch, whom he admired as an actor. He later said in an interview that he quit acting because he knew he could not compete with actors such as Benedict. However, he remained a lifelong friend of Benedict.
Apart from acting, his core interests include politics. He joined the University of Manchester and studied politics and modern history. He excelled in both the subjects and ended up graduating with double first-class grades.
Robert Rinder became a pupil at 2 Paper Buildings after he joined the bar. He later became a professional lawyer and mostly dealt in financial crimes such as money laundering and frauds. International frauds also came under his area of expertise.
He describes his time as a pupil as one of the hardest years of his life and once mentioned that it was an emotionally taxing experience for him. He later became a criminal barrister and dealt in common law, too.
Following this, he began specializing in criminal law. He mentioned that it was easier, as the cases could be wrapped up quickly. A few years later, he met an “influential solicitor” in Birmingham, who began training Robert.
One of the most important cases of his career was the one of the January 2003 shootings of Letisha Shakespeare and Charlene Ellis. It was the breakthrough case of his life, as after that, he began getting many high-profile cases of crime and frauds.
One such case that attracted national attention was the one involving the murders of a few detainees. The murders were committed by the British armed forces in Iraq.
He mentioned that many young men in the British service were as young as 17 years old and that there could have been situations in a place like Iraq where they were unable to tell right from wrong.
He also said that some cases had a huge impact on him. He once defended a man who was accused of carrying firearms. Robert argued that he had done it in self-defense and successfully got his client acquitted.
According to TrendCelebsNow.com, the 41-year-old television judge has an estimated net worth of £4.03million. His net worth is shocking compared to that of Judge Judy, the American version of Judge Rinder.
Judge Judy, real name Judy Sheindlin, presided over real small-claims cases inside a televised courtroom. So far there have been 24 seasons of Judge Judy and during her long stint on the American reality series she has amassed a huge fortune.
