About me

Summer L. Robertson is the Managing Partner for the Law Offices of Hackley & Robertson. Her experience as an immigration lawyer with the firm handling nonimmigrant and immigrant visa processing has allowed her to successfully participate in the resolution of some of the firm's more sophisticated and complex immigration legal matters.

Her background as Executive Board Member and Founding Member of Delta Phi Epsilon Sorority and Member of Phi Alpha Delta Pre-Law Fraternity, and Historian Chair of the Legal Studies Foreign Exchange Program to London, England compliments her academic achievements. Summer is a member of the Florida Bar, the District of Columbia Bar, and the Federal Bar for the Southern Districts of Florida.

  • Martin John Hernandez

    I have worked with many different lawyers who claim they represent individuals and companies in immigration matters. I had never been so disappointed in how many "players" there were in an industry until I met Summer Robertson. She and her staff were knowledgeable, efficient, and quick with their results (and done correctly the first time!). When it comes to immigration, you get what you pay for and with Summer you get the best of the best. I highly endorse this lawyer.
