Open and direct
Nick listened to the concerns of both my husband and I. I have to say we really appreciated his honest feedback. While other attorneys referred us to others, Nick came out and said: " I do not think you have a case, it is frustrating i can imagine but there is no case here".

Nick was very helpful
I was told to contact Nick through another lawyer. Spoke to him the same afternoon. I was very impressed with his knowledge of the law and he was very helpful in directing me on the next steps I should take concerning my situation. I would highly recommend him if your needs fit into his speciality of law.

Awesome attorney!
Nick Robinson's team came highly recommended to us. He was very up front with us ~~ filled with information and patience from the beginning. His firm was nothing less than professional and in fact stellar. It was told to us that he is one of the best ~~ very honest and reasonable. We have found that to be the truth and even more. We will now be recommending him ourselves, every chance we get. This firm is well known and has an amazing reputation. Impressed is not a big enough word. He went above and beyond what I expected. Don't be fooled by his youthful appearance. When I first met him, I thought ~~ wow ~~ this is a kid. I'm probably his first case. What a surprise I got. When I gave him my case, we were immediately on the fast track ~~ unbelievable how quick and smooth things went. He does not waste hours, trying to make more money, by dragging things out. He thought of and accomplished things I did not know could be done. If you are looking for that needle in the haystack, I found him. Nick Robinson is now highly recommended by us!

I am a professional Guardian in Pinellas county and I have been working with Nick for about 2 years. Nick is a very professional, courteous and thorough attorney that has represented myself and my wards in many cases.

Professional
I recently had the opportunity to refer a family member to Nick for an emergency guardianship hearing - I attended the hearing and Nick was very organized - His preparation for the hearing was evident as he lead my cousin through her experience. He asked pertinent questions with professionalism and empathy for his client. The judge actually complimented him on his presentation and said he left her with no questions to ask .

New Guardianship Request
When I approached Nick Robinson at a networking meeting for Guardians, he was professional and attentive, and offered to check on the client I had been asked to represent. He was able to discern that the family was, in fact, unable to offer the care and support needed to protect the client. Nick, and his staff, helped me move through the legal process for filing the case to set up and establish the new guardianship. Their firm has proven to be knowledgeable and flexible, and very easy to work with to achieve the required objectives, Working with NIck has been a very positive experience for me, and a positive outcome for my new Ward.
