In 2015, Minneapolis-based Law & Politics publishers of Super Lawyers magazines announced that Robin had been named as a Rising Star Attorney. Super Lawyers, published in the New York Times Magazine is a listing of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement in their respective fields. Each year, no more than 5 percent of the lawyers in the state receive this honor.


That same year, Long Island Pulse Magazine named Robin to their “Legal Eagle” list, a guide of top rated attorneys in Suffolk and Nassau County. In 2016 she was named as an “Outstanding Woman in Law’ by Hofstra University School of Law Center for Children Families and the Law and Long Island Business News.
