About me

When you hire Ted Robinson you get him!  Ted has  been a Criminal Defense Trial attorney for 39 years and was awarded the Practitioner of the Year Award from the Nassau County Criminal Courts Bar Association in 2006.


He is well known for being an aggressive, effective, experienced and knowledgeable defender of his clients' rights.  He listens carefully to your case and will review all potential witnesses in order to evaluate what needs to be done and give you the best possible advice.  He is well known for his trial tactics and his innate and incisive ability to cross-examine witnesses effectively. 


Ted personally appears with his clients and you can contact him directly through his office - not an answering service, etc. 


Ted provides competent, personalized and compassionate service for a reasonable fee.  He is a Past President of the Criminal Courts Bar Association of Nassau County and the Nassau Lawyers Association of Long Island.


He also handles Estates, Wills and Trusts effectively and at reasonable rates as well as other important matters for his clients.  His firm has developed a Will/Trust package that is excellent where he often videotapes his Will signings to avoid Will contests later.  You can also have time at the end of your Will signing to leave a last message for your heirs and loved ones on video.


Ted cares about his clients and they know it.  By the end of every case they are satisfied that he's done his best for them to get the desired outcome.
