I am African American single mother. I was recently charged with “Reckless Handling of a firearm” after an assault on my daughter. Due to the attention this case received in the media I knew it was not going to be easy. The first thing I did after being released from my arrest was call Robinson Law. I have been a client of Attorney Michael Robinson for just about 6 years and will continue to be. I respect and admire Attorney Michael Robinson not only as an Attorney but also as Man. When I was offered a plea deal that I was unhappy with, Attorney Michael Robinson said “ Ms. Gaither you did not retain me to plead you out “ and he was right. I retained him for what I have seen him due for friends, family and co-workers and that was to fight for Justice and what’s right and that is exactly what Attorney Michael Robinson did and I received with a NOT GUILTY. Myself and my daughter are forever grateful.

Mr. Robinson is by far the most professional, sedulous, and straight forward attorney I've ever had the pleasure to work with. I'm not one to write reviews for anything or anyone, but Mr. Robinson was so exceptional to work with that I simply had to share my experience. I was recently charged with a speeding ticket (39 in a 25) and hired him once I researched his experience and reviews. After I completed a driver improvement class, he was able to have my case dismissed. Although my circumstance was relatively minor, Mr. Robinson never treated it as less of a priority.
He was EXTREMELY HELPFUL during the entire process and always took the time to thoroughly answer my questions. Words truly can't express how excellent he is and you will not be sorry if you hire this attorney. He is truly concerned with the outcome of his clients and you'll quickly realize this yourself, should you choose to work with him!

Mr. Robinson recently represented me in a DUI trial and successfully won a Not Guilty verdict for me. I could not be happier about the outcome and the quality of his service. It was sheer dumb luck that I signed up on a DUI website after my arrest and that he contacted me for a phone consultation, but I believe that everything that has transpired since I hired him has been a product of his skill and professionalism. I talked to other lawyers on phone consultations, but none of them really gave me the same feeling of confidence and competence that Mr. Robinson did. From Day One, he impressed me with his knowledge of the DUI laws and penalties and how to would interpret my situation and handle my case. My experience with the legal system (my first) was a very long process of several months and while I won't say that I was completely carefree during the process, Michael was a reassuring presence and was always responsive to my questions and kept me informed on new developments. After trying extremely hard to get the prosecutors to give me a reduced charge, we eventually went to trial. In court, Michael was relentless in picking apart the prosecution's witnesses and introducing enough reasonable doubt to avoid a conviction. I cannot thank him enough for his tireless efforts and would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a DUI lawyer.

After a long night out with friends, I was arrested for DUI in Fairfax City with a blood alcohol content of .15 ..... this is a mandatory 5 day jail sentence. I did a considerable amount of research on effective area lawyers and decided to contact Michael Robinson based upon his experience and reputation. I used this website to contact Michael via an email request at 7:15am on a Monday morning. I got a call back from Michael before 7:30am (now that's responsiveness). I thought I would be in for a long drawn out process trying to stall and maybe eliminate the jail time. The situation did not look good at the time. At my first court appearance Michael was able to get the BAC reduced to .14 and eliminate the jail time. I highly recommend Michael Robinson! He is extremely knowledgeable (on both sides of the court having been a former prosecutor), treated me with the greatest respect and produced a really good outcome.

I STRONGLY endorse this lawyer. Mr. Robinson is one of the best attorneys I've had the pleasure of meeting in my career. His intelligence, work ethic, and knowledge of the law are unsurpassed. He is one of the leading attorneys in his area of practice, and if you have worked with him (or against him) then you know why. Do not hesitate to retain him as your legal counsel.

I endorse this lawyer. Michael is a passionate criminal defense attorney who knows the law, how to try a case, and how to persuade a judge. I trust his judgement and, in fact, ask him for advice on my own cases. Anyone facing a criminal charge would be lucky to have Michael on their side.
