Thorough and Extremely Helpful
Brandon gave a very clear, thorough, and helpful response to my questions. I actually tried to hire him but realized it would not work out because my business operates in a different state.

Attorney Brandon Robinson is extremely knowledgeable and proficient in Estate Planning and tax-related legal complexities. The scope and competence of Brandon’s Estate Planning legal knowledge were readily evident and demonstrated during our initial introductory phone consultation. Brandon effectively communicated various legal concepts, opinions, and recommendations relative to my Estate Planning questions, needs, and expectations. Brandon proposed and delivered legal opinions and recommendations that were thorough, clear, concise and applicable to my specific wills, deeds, and tax-related estate issues. Brandon’s comprehensive legal concepts, opinions, and recommendations were utilized as strategic guidelines in effectively resolving and settling my specific wills, deeds, and tax-related estate issues. Based on Brandon’s demonstrated legal expertise, guidance, and full resolution of my estate issues—I highly, highly recommend Attorney Brandon Alexander Robinson as a trusted, honest, dependable, effective, and highly-qualified Estate Planning legal counsel.

Helpful
I did not hire this attorney, but his answers on Avvo are always on point. Sometimes lawyers on this site can be extremely rude and unhelpful, not attorney Robinson! He took his time to explain how and where I would access the information I needed for my prose case in a factual and conciderate way. It was refreshing for sure!

My Go-to Attorney for Estate Planning, Contracts, and Corporate Litigation
I've worked with Attorney Robinson from 2021 through 2022 and my experience with him has been excellent. He is very thorough, and explains complicated matters in very easy-to-understand terms. He worked with my wife and I on our Estate Planning (Wills, Trust, POA) and we now all of our bases covered. Brandon has also helped me create business contracts, and is currently helping me with corporate ligation. I have to say, he is 'Top Notch' and extremely professional. I strongly recommend him for anyone looking to complete their Estate Plans, Business Contract creation, and Corporate Litigation.

Thoughtful
I highly recommend working with Brandon Robinson. I was starting my business and had little experience with forming an LLC. Brandon was responsive and patient as he walked me through the process. He was thorough in his work and continues to provide follow up as needed. I am very thankful for his guidance and caring.

Extremely helpful and knowledgeable
Mr. Robinson showed a genuine interest in my case. He was an attentive listener and thorough in gathering relevant information to complete a Will and Last Testament for me. He was careful to explain all laws and processes concerning Wills and was very patient with all of my questions. He was very professional from start to finish, and I highly recommend him.

Highly recommend!
I was referred to Brandon by a friend (another attorney) who knew I was starting a new business. From our first phone call Brandon was valuable and insightful. He listened to my explanation about what I was trying to do, took notes and made recommendations. He understood what I needed to protect myself legally. Brandon walked me through every step of establishing a LLC and operating agreement. I am very grateful for his expertise.

President/CEO
Brandon possesses excellent communication skills. Grasping the essence of the need, He researches thoroughly, in timely fashion and forms/delivers concise opinions. He anticipates very well possible opposition to initiatives, incorporating risk/return considerations in recommendations, Brandon demonstrates abilities often not found in other attorneys; certainly not those of comparable age and practice tenure. I highly recommend Brandon Robinson.

Provided accurate, appropriate guidance regarding a sensitive matter. Provided good guidance regarding the law itself, and wisely encouraged me to seek further guidance with a trusted attorney if the matter continues. I am now more knowledgable and empowered to take next steps if needed.

Attorney Alexander was quick to respond. He is extremely knowledgeable. I felt comfortable with him and was very helpful. I have contacted almost a dozen attorneys.
