also known as James Robson, James A Robson

About me

James is a skilled trial lawyer who handles only serious personal injury and wrongful death cases.  James has tried numerous cases to verdict and worked tirelessly to recover millions of dollars for his clients.  He handles a wide variety of cases throughout the State of Georgia, including automobile wrecks, trucking/tractor-trailer wrecks, motorcycle wrecks, bicycle wrecks, premises liability, slip/trip and falls, negligent security, apartment shootings/assaults, defective/dangerous products, wrongful death, spinal cord injuries and brain injuries.

As a result of his success, James has been recognized as one of Georgia’s best lawyers by numerous publications and was named to the Georgia Super Lawyers “Rising Stars” list in both 2012 and 2013.  Notably, only 2.5% of lawyers in Georgia are selected for this honor.  In addition, Georgia Trend Magazine selected James as one of Georgia’s 2013 “Legal Elite.”

Before co-founding Glass & Robson, James honed his skills as an associate with some of Georgia’s best trial attorneys.  Prior to dedicating himself to representing only plaintiffs, James worked for one of Georgia’s largest insurance defense firms defending personal injury and wrongful death cases.  His prior experience representing insurance companies and their clients provides him a unique insight into how they evaluate and defend cases.  James now uses that experience to his clients’ advantage to maximize their recoveries.

James was born and raised in Georgia and attended college at the University of Georgia in Athens where he was a double major and in the Honors Program.  He graduated from UGA magna cum laude, with honors with dual degrees in History and Political Science.  Following college, James attended Mercer University’s Walter F. George School of Law in Macon, Georgia where he was a member of the Mercer Law Review and Moot Court Board.  During law school, he interned with the Honorable C. Ashley Royal of the United States District Court for the Middle District of Georgia, and graduated cum laude with his Juris Doctor.

As a member in good standing of the State Bar of Georgia, James is admitted to practice in all Georgia State and Superior Courts, the Georgia Court of Appeals, the Supreme Court of Georgia, the U.S. District Court for the Northern and Middle Districts of Georgia, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, and the United States Supreme Court.  He is also an active member of the American Association for Justice and the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association where he serves as co-chair of the Education Committee.

James and his wife Kate met at the University of Georgia and reside at their home in Buckhead.

    James is a lawyer's lawyer. Aggressive, yet strategic. Personal injury clients need to know they have someone who will consider their best interests and willing to take their case to trial. James is that lawyer.

  • Brian Wesley Craig

    I work with my father who has been practicing law for 35 years and is a walking legal encyclopedia. That said, I find myself calling James Robson on every complex legal issue that comes across my desk. James is truly one of the great legal minds in the area of personal injury which is why so many injury victims, and more importantly, injury attorneys, seek James' counsel and assistance on their serious injury matters.
