  • BEST CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY EVER!! Laura Robinson was hired at the very end of a long court diversion program escapade in which I had ineffective assistance of counsel and things were a chaotic mess. I called her up and she spent several hours with me on the phone, despite this being the first time we had met or communicated. He agreed to meet with me the next day, in which she spent the entire afternoon with me. (more…)


  • It is very difficult to shop for an attorney. When I was looking for one to represent me in a case where I really needed a criminal defense attorney on my side regarding a very negative, unjust experience, I searched for a very long time for someone competent, affordable (I'm a student), honest, and available.

  • Laura is awesome! She provided me with honest and straight forward answers in my case. And when it came to court appearances, this attorney has a unique ability to simply work the room like the leader of the pack. From the moment I had her representing me, I knew that she had my best interests at heart, ensured that I understood everything occurring, and took the time necessary to ensure I was prepared in every way possible. I would recommend Laura Robinson ABSOLUTELY to anyone and everyone!!


  • I had a personal obligation to write Laura Robinson a review based on a recent legal nightmare that she was able to assist me with at the last minute. My thoughts on Attorney Robinson.... SHE IS TOTALLY AWESOME!!!!!! (more…)
