On National Margarita Day of 2017 I joined some friends to celebrate after work. I drove home, I got pulled for speeding, I performed field sobriety tests, and PBT, and was arrested and charged. I was terrified, and had to wait 6 months for the trial date. Michael made no promises, and all that I envisioned in my future was a criminal offense which would haunt my record for years. He had a plan but, again, he made no promises it would work. On August 1st, 2017, I was found not guilty of DUI. A burden has been lifted off of my shoulders and I can breathe again. I cannot thank Mr. Robinson enough! His knowledge of the law is impeccable, and he has such a calm, professional demeanor. I am appealing the reckless driving charge.
I drove home today. No suspension. No restrictions.
Look no further. Choose Michael Robinson!

When I was charged with DWI (first offense) and refusal (first offense), I thought my life was over. Fortunately, after consulting with several attorneys, I saw Michael's profile on AVVO. I ended up reading all of his reviews and was impressed by the results that he was able to obtain with similar DWI cases. He was confident and realistic on the phone, so I retained him shortly after the consult. Going through this was a scary time, but I felt good knowing that Michael is experienced with these cases. Upon reviewing the video evidence, he gave me some advice on how to set up my personal affairs prior to the trial, and what kind of result to expect. We agreed on goals for the outcome, and a game plan if it did not go our way. I should add that he was able to accommodate my availability, and spent time with me outside of normal office hours (both on the phone and in person).
On the date of the trial, the only thing the prosecutor was offering was a plea to the DWI and dropping the refusal charge. As we had discussed, we did not accept this and went to trial. Plan A was to make an argument that could get both charges dismissed, Plan B was to appeal it if the argument was not accepted. Fortunately, by citing previous cases and their outcomes, he was able to win the case for me, and both charges were dropped. I honestly couldn't be happier, it's a huge weight off my shoulders. I am really glad I retained Michael Robinson, and you should do the same!

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
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.
James Abrenio, Criminal defense Attorney
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
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.
