First Time
Having never been in an auto accident before, let alone being hit by a drunk driver, I was unsure what to do when this all came about. Under direction from my friends and family I was told to call Jeff and see what he thought of my situation. He met with me right away and listened to my case and accepted it. Ive never needed a lawyer for any reason before so I was a little nervous about it all but Jeff was very kind and explained everything I was unsure on. I was kept informed through the everything without having to make a bunch of phone calls or endless emails. The end result was better then I could have imagined and Jeff made it completely painless for me.

Dog Bite
Jeff was compassionate, empathetic and very helpful during a horrific turn of events. He was very dedicated, and proactive at representing me. I would highly recommend Jeff for anyone needing representation, and unsure of who to trust, and turn to when in need.

Generous with his time, seems to really care
I had an issue that was very specific and very nuanced. Despite that fact, Mr. Robinette took the time to hear me out and give me the help I needed.

Binding contracts
I was in need of some legal advice over a contract for selling puppies. I am not a wealthy person and was In desperate need of legal advice and had called a few different attorneys around and left messages and never received a call back from any. So today I got on line and was praying I got ahold of someone today. I called one number and Jeffrey Robinette answered the phone himself and was more then willing to speak to me. I told him My situation and what my concerns were and that I definitely didn’t have lots of money to hire an attorney but I was scared of the unknown and what lied ahead for my family and I, if I didn’t get some advice or a lawyer for my situation. He was more then willing to talk to me for a good while and give me advice on my situation and great advice at that. I would recommend him to anyone and will from here on out to anyone I hear say needs an attorney. He never once made me feel as if I was anything but a paying client or that my situation was any less important to him. Knowing that he is an attorney that gets payed a lot of money an hour for his services I was a little nervous about even calling but he made me feel welcomed and helped me more then he will ever know . Even told me to call him back for any help and advice I may need anytime ! AMAZING MAN In my Eyes and will be the first name out of my mouth for a lawyer to anyone from here on out. Thank you so much .

From his explanations, it was clear that he was experienced with this type of case and and gave me realistic expectations. He showed compassion to me and my family.

Car accident

The Easy Way or the Hard Way?
This question was presented by Mr. Jeff Robinette, when retained to represent us; to an attorney who we believed committed legal malpractice. We asked Mr. Robinette to review our situation, then represent us which he agreed to do. From our experience, attorneys who were willing to do possible legal malpractice are fairly rare. Apparently, it is not enjoyable to confront a fellow attorney who many have committed legal malpractice. Mr. Jeff Robinette met with our former attorney. Mr. Robinette gave him a choice to go the "Easy Way" which was a verbal, then written agreement stating everything the former attorney would need to do to make us whole. The other option, the "Hard Way", would have taken the previous attorney through the legal system. Apparently the former attorney was aware of Mr. Robinette's knowledge and court skills, therefore he made the decision that the hard way was not wise. In our relationship with Mr. Robinette, we felt that we were his only client. Communication was excellent, often receiving returning emails or phone calls in minutes or no longer than a day. This was most reassuring. At all times, Mr. Robinette gave us council, options, followed by wise recommendations as the best course of action. Mr. Jeff Robinette brought our situation to a most successful conclusion. We could not have had an attorney to represent us in a more professional, helpful, caring manner. We never physically met Mr. Robinette. All communications were emails or phone calls. We were in Florida, he was in West Virginia. After the case was concluded, our family was vacationing about 50 miles from Morgantown, WV. Jeff, wife Terri, two daughters an newly acquired puppy can to visit. How personal can an attorney be? What a nice time we spent together. We fully and completely endorse Mr. Jeff Robinette as an attorney in his several fields of expertise! Hire him as your attorney; you will have a talented person to represent you and likely a caring friend as well! Ralph & Gracie

An Advocate needed for a most complicated case
My case deals with a very complicated property settlement. When I met Jeff Robinette & his firm for the first time, I had spent the last 6 years in family court trying to get my property settlement honored. The family court gave me a judgement that I had to act on in circuit court. Suffice to say that I was very upset that now I had to go to another court to try to resolve the judgement. I wanted someone who would not only represent me but that really understood all the ins and outs of my case. Upon meeting Jeff & his staff for the first time, I was very moved by how honest he was about the obstacles we had to overcome in my case. He went above and beyond with explaining what he felt we could do. Because he let me know that there was no easy fix to my case, I respected his honesty and asked him to represent me. He has not only been my lawyer, he has also been my advocate! Jeff never runs from the difficulties in my case. He answers every phone call, email, & court summons with a clear plan and has made sure I completely understand what our objectives are. An advocate, to me, means that he not only represents me in court but he has also been a helper, counselor, & intercessor (fighter). If Jeff and his staff represent you, you feel he not only believes in your case but he believes in you as well. My case is still ongoing...I'm so thankful that Jeff has made me feel everything is under control. If you are looking for a true Advocate in your attorney, then Jeff and his staff are exactly who you want to hire.

Jeff and his staff got me a great settlement after I was involved in a truck crash.
As a truck driver ,I was in a crash that ended my career as a commercial driver. Not only was the thought of having to deals with the large Insurance Companies very overwhelming to me, I also had to face the fact that I could no longer do what I did for a living. After doing some careful research,I contacted Jeff at The Robinette Legal Group, and from the beginning felt like a load was taken of my shoulders. Jeff and his staff kept me well informed through the whole process, and in the end the results far exceeded my expectations, Should I ever need an Attorney in WV, I would definitely call Jeff.

Thanks to Jeff and his legal team
Our experience with Jeff and his firm has always produced the best possible result. Not only has he walked us through very technical business sales processes and contracts, but he also orchestrated the resolution of an extremely complicated property damage claim ... which, in many ways, kept our business from disaster. Though his legal expertise and credentials are second-to-none, the sensitivity and genuine care for his clients that he exercises are superior to any lawyer with whom I have ever been connected. As such, we heartily commend Jeff and his group to you with 5 STARS.

Representation on faulty home foundation
We were in the process of selling our home, and found out that there was a massive crack through the entire foundation. We contacted our builder, who told us to call his lawyer. Since needed an attorney immediately and had not worked with one before, we didn't know where to start. After leaving a message for Attorney Robinette, he immediately returned my call and began working on the case. Because he has years of experience and knowledge of construction issues, he began working with forensic engineers to determine what needed to be done to repair our home. The exchanges with the contractor's insurance company were numerous, but Attorney Robinette worked tirelessly for a favorable outcome. While he was working our case, he was in constant contact providing updates and reassurance. In addition, he was always straight forward and honest about our situation and possible outcomes of the case. After a few months of negotiations with the insurance company, Attorney Robinette was able to secure a settlement that allowed us to have our home repaired and to recoup the fees we paid to various professionals. We would recommend Attorney Robinette for his strong legal knowledge, his persistence, integrity, and for the caring nature in which he treats his clients.

A truly great lawyer but an even greater person
Being sued by three different banks and dropped after taking the case by another attorney I was in great need of an attorney that would pick up the pieces and aggressively represent me. Even though I lived 2500 miles away and never personally met Jeff, he took my case and provided me solid assurance he would do everything he could to get to a satisfactory outcome. Just as important to me at the time, he provided me with personal support and empathy to my situation. His fees were more than fair and his responsiveness and thoroughness were excellent. After more than a year the outcome was more than satisfactory and he had provided me with solid advice and peace of mind. I have worked with many attorneys in the past and he along with only one other provided me with this type of excellent representation.

A Great Lawyer and an Even Better Friend
I experienced a soft tissue injury in an auto-accident. I needed three reconstructive surgeries because of my shoulder injury and I needed to be represented to be treated fairly by the insurer. The Robinette Law Team protected me from the insurance company's low balling tendencies. They worked for nearly two years on my case and it was worth the patience. Jeffery Robinette and his associates kept me very well informed and walked me through every step of the process. It was a long journey that ended in victory. Coming to Robinette Legal Group resulted in getting the highest settlement available, this was life changing. With Jeffery's reputation the insurance company was very cooperative. I couldn't have imagined a better outcome and I will always look to Robinette Legal Group for all my legal needs, and I will recommend them to everyone who may need legal advise.

David and Goliath
As a small contractor much of my work was performed with a good faith belief in the integrity of the clients I worked for unfortunately this proved to be foolish on my behalf and if that wasn't bad enough I believed that my insurance co. appointed lawyer had my interest at heart. When I met Jeff and he agreed to help me; he was honest about the severity of my situation and made no promises, but somehow with the conviction in his voice and shake of his hand I knew that no matter what the outcome Jeff would use all his knowledge to help me. And that I could not be manipulated by my client and the insurance company anymore. My case was resolved favorably and I consider jeff a TRUE friend.

More than just a lawyer
Mr. Robinette started as just my lawyer but became a friend and confidant, helping my family and me get through the aftermath of a carbon monoxide incident in our home. Jeff made sure from the very begining that I always knew what was going on and what the next steps were. He was very diligent in his research and investigation, and because of this and being uncompromising as he worked with the opposing side we received a good settlement. Jeff was also very helpful after the settlement. He gave great advice and helped us make wise decisions with what to do with the funds.

Review by Donald I. Conaway
Showed genuine concern for my well being. The case was not a slam dunk, but the end result was awesome. Was kept informed without calling for an update, and when I did call all my questions were answered courteously and promptly. If I should need an attorney again, I would call Jeff. His knowledge of the law, dedication and commitment to obtaining a favorable settlement on my behalf will allow me to live a more comfortable life. Although my injuries are permanent and my life has been changed, I believe that it has changed for the better, because of Jeff's help.
