Best Lawyer I've Ever Worked With.
Cori is a complete gem. She's so easy-going and selfless. Even though she was on vacation she still took time to consult with me. I had a difficult case and she handled it effortlessly. I highly recommend her.

Great estates attorney
I hired Cori to help my family and I with a complicated inheritance and trust issue and I couldn't have made a better choice. She dealt with the legal issues with a rare mix of professionalism and sensitivity. She answered all questions clearly, was honest about the challenges that might arise, laying out possible scenarios but also creatively finding ways to deal with them. She also proactively moved the process forward several times when it all seemed stuck in place. But what really stood out about Cori was her ability to work with the complex personalities and relationships involved, relating to everyone with patience, understanding and respect. I'm very grateful she's my lawyer and I'd recommend to her anyone.

My favorite lawyer
I was the real estate broker in a transaction of an estate sale that Ms Robinson was in charge of. I completely agree with the other reviews of her, she is a fantastic lawyer and a great person. We had a complicated situation with a lot of hurdles a long the way, but Cori handled every single issue in a professional manner and led us to a successful outcome. It was a pleasurable experience working with her as she was responsive and easily accessible to inform and answer questions. This is the type of lawyer I want on my side. So if you are looking for a trustworthy, professional and knowledgeable attorney, Cori is the one you want.

Incredible experience
Cori Robinson is warm, kind and very knowledgeable. She treated us with respect and was gracious. She answered all of our questions and provided us with so much more information than we ever would have thought of ourselves. She was a pleasure to work with, I've already recommended her to so many friends and colleagues. I've actually asked to bring her in to my community to host a wills and estate planning workshop because I think what she has to offer will be so beneficial to so many.

Knowledgeable and Professional Attorney
Cori was by far the best attorney I have ever worked with. Her knowledge of the law, her professional attitude goes above and beyond any attorney I have ever consulted with. She explains things thoroughly and in a way that you do not need a law degree to understand. She is a true advocate for her clients and it shows in her results. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone in need of an attorney.

Best decision ever!
Ms Robinson helped our family navigate the tricky waters of estate planning and our will. Most importantly, she helped navigate the ins and outs of paying for long terms care for our loved one. She was passionate, friendly, easy to reach, an excellent communicator, and most importantly very knowledgeable. Cori was very reasonably priced, compassionate, and a pleasure to work with. I couldn’t imagine going through this process with anyone else. I feel very lucky to have found her. I have since recommended her to all my family and friends and would never use anyone else.

Professional, Personable, and Perfect.
Ms. Robinson represented me in an estate matter for over a year. During that time, she proved repeatedly why the decision to have her represent me was a good one. She explained in detail all the relevant issues, the paths that could be pursued, and was clear and confident in her ability to perform the task at hand. I found her exceptional at being timely, cost-effective, and honest. In a world filled with people who will wind up taking advantage of you; we have someone like Ms. Robinson who you can trust completely. I've not felt in better hands when it comes to legal representation than when I worked with her. This includes indicating things that she thought were not where she was best suited to address something. There was no arrogance or overstepping. Clear representation, helpful and incisive guidance, and professionalism from start to finish.

Cori Robinson
I couldn't be more satisfied with Cori as my lawyer. I've had dealings with lawyers before and while they've been satisfactory they simply did what was required. Cori is a warm, friendly person that explains everything to you, makes sure you see the technical aspects, and does it in a relaxed manner so that you don't feel you want to rush and get it over with quickly. She did my will as well as a friend's. She came to the apt. for him, brought an assistant to serve as witness on the documents and, since she is a notary as well, took care of that aspect of the proceedings as well. She came for a consultation for both me and my friend, explained everything, sent preliminary copies of the documents, and then returned with the final ones to sign. Her fees were very reasonable in comparison form what I hear others charge. Moreover, she is always ready to offer advice on legal matters if asked. All in all, I cannot think of a better lawyer and, singing her praises, I have recommended her to other friends as well.

Ms Robinson expertly handled some complex estate planning issues, and wrote my will. We also hired her to finalize issues related to my late mother's estate, with property in a number of different states. Her warmth, intelligence and good nature made all the difference. I would recommend her without hesitation.

Comprehensive and attentive
Ms. Robinson was attentive when we met with her. She asked the questions we needed to have answered as we do our advanced planning. She was comprehensive, sending us a number of documents she had drafted that addressed our needs, even outside of the standard will. She was also responsive to our questions. Would definitely use her again.

Truly a pleasure to work with her.
Cori held our hands through the somewhat awkward and emotional process of estate planning and figuring out plans with family members and descendents. She answered every question with knowledge and poise, and explained everything every step of the way. She was flexible and accessible. I reccomend cori to anyone.
