Robert "Bob" Gervits is an assistant U.S. attorney who has an antagonistic relationship with Jack McCoy.


When two cops, Carlson and Fratelli, are arrested for killing an African-American Auxiliary police officer, Gervits conveys an offer to the Manhattan District Attorney's Office. The U.S. attorney will take over the case sparing them any possible blacklash with the NYPD. Schiff tells him they appreciate the offer but decline and Gervits leaves their office. When another cop, Frank Dietrick, is discovered to have helped the cover-up, Gervits interrupts the interrogation and listens as Dietrick's attorney says he will only talk if granted immunity on state and federal levels. Gervits immediately agrees and McCoy reluctantly accepts the deal as well. When McCoy withdraws the deal due to the discovery of Dietrick's racist and violent urges, Gervits adamently refuses to withdraw their deal. While McCoy argues with Gervits and the mayor, Schiff shouts "Take the case" and allows the federal government to prosecute them. McCoy however, circumvents his authority to void the deal the feds have with Dietrick. Gervits argues in court trying to sustain the deal, but the judge rules in McCoy's favor. (L&O: "DWB")

Gervits runs into McCoy again when Donald Gibson was murdered by a local mobster named Sean Russo. Gervits claims his grand jury for racketeering case against Russo was already in the works, but he is content to wait for their murder case to be resolved and Gervits plans his revenge on McCoy. He listens as McCoy offers two club owners who set up the murder a deal for their cooperation guaranteeing federal witness protection. When Russo's attorney, Leonard Sklar, listens to the owners testify as their allocution, he arranges a deal with Gervits. He tells them Russo will give up the remaining members of the Russo Crime Family, if he agrees to ten years and makes the state accept a plea of manslaughter in the second degree to be served concurrently. When McCoy refuses, Schiff goes over his head and accepts the deal and Gervits files racketeering charges against the club owners and pulls the witness protection to spite McCoy. McCoy calls Gervits out on his dirty tactics and lying to their faces, but Gervits just smiles and says in a hypothetical way that they are even. (L&O: "Ambitious")
