About Me

I grew up in Mesquite Texas.  My interest in law began at a young age from stories my father, who worked as a teacher in the Texas prisons, would tell me.  I remember reading through the Texas Penal Code when I was 12 years old and memorizing penalty ranges for various crimes.  I also was very interested in cars from an early age and began working on them in my teens.   I attended Texas A & M and the University of Texas at Arlington.  During college I worked various jobs including the assembly line at General Motors in Arlington, a runner for a lawfirm and as a auto mechanic.  The law and cars have always been a hobby and more for me.  After graduating from The University of Oklahoma College of Law in 1991 I immediately began taking criminal cases as a defense lawyer.  Over the years I have dealt with literally thousands of cases from shoplifting to murder.  It is always a challenge to analyze every case in detail and figure out how to attain the best possible result for the client given the circumstances and facts of the case.  Since 1991 I have also practiced personal injury, family and bankruptcy law.  As with any type of case, careful analysis of the facts of these cases as it applies to the law is paramount in attaining the best result for the client.

  • Andrew J. Anderson

    I have known John Robinson for about seven years. He is always prepared and professional in representing his clients. His knowledge of the Dallas County Criminal Courts is exceptional; and he is well liked by the Courts and their staff. However, his most important credential is that he has a passion for protecting his clients’ rights. He will work tirelessly to get their case dismissed, or to prepare it for a trial. His results speak to his dedication. Further, he is Board Certified which means that the State Bar of Texas endorses his criminal law knowledge as superior to 98% all other Texas attorneys. He would be the first person I called if a Dallas County criminal case was filed against me .
