About me

Robin Sax is an experienced litigator with an emphasis on criminal and family law.  From DUI to robbery, from domestic violence to theft, from misdemeanor to felony, from arraignment to trial, Robin has over 15 years of criminal law experience. Robin is skilled in fighting a variety of criminal charges and aggressively achieving the best possible results in often terrifying circumstances.


 


Robin has special niche in the cases where criminal meets family law and vice versa. For example, these cases can involve domestic violence, child abuse, restraining orders, and sexual abuse. Robin has represented victims of crime as well as the people who have been falsely accused of crimes in order to gain advantage in a family law case.

  • Darren Todd Kavinoky

    I’m so delighted that Robin Sax is part of The KLF family. They demonstrate a commitment to delivering Peace of Mind to all of our clients that is truly awesome. Robin knows that our clients care about getting the best possible result, having the best experience of being represented, and feeling fought for and cared about. My ultimate test when hiring an associate is whether I would want them going to battle on my behalf. There is simply no question that when it comes to Robin, I would jump in a foxhole with them without hesitation.
