Scott Hayden Robinson

About me

Aside from being a highly respected trial and appellate attorney, successfully litigating criminal, personal injury, and wrongful death cases from the lowliest of municipal courts to the United States Supreme Court, and earning accolades such as being selected a Colorado Super Lawyer, being awarded the highest possible Martindale Hubbell rating for the past 30+ years, and being selected for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America, I am a husband, father, and good friend.  I have varied experiences which help me in both my personal and professional lives, including 2 years driving a taxi cab in Denver at night, flipping burgers at Griff's, running a golf course, successfully completing two Hawaiian Ironman competitions, qualifying and running the Boston Marathon in under 3 hours, and becoming a knowledgeable wine guy and ameteur oenologist in my spare time.  I enjoy endurance athletics, particularly mountain biking on difficult trails, reading, going to the theater, and movies, but nothiong as much as representing my clients in court:  that is where I am most comfortable and feel fulfilled.

    Mr. Robinson is an exemplary attorney who I would recommend to everyone and anyone. Hiring him might very well be the best decision that you have ever made. His answers on Avvo are perfect. I have practiced for 24 years as a judge, magistrate, prosecutor, and private attorney and he is one of the best I have encountered.
