About me

Calvin Robinson, Esquire, heads The 813 Injury Law Group, as the founder of our legal team. Attorney Robinson grew up in upstate New York and received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Union College, where he made the Dean's List and was a recipient of the Union College Alumni academic scholarship. He was also a member of the Men's Varsity Basketball team and excelled as a student-athlete. After completing his undergraduate studies, he relocated to Florida, following his family to the Tampa Bay area.




Attorney Robinson received a full academic scholarship to The Florida State University College of Law from which he graduated in 2004. While attending law school, Mr. Robinson’s academic focus was in the areas of Injury, Criminal, Entertainment, and Sports Law. Active on campus, Calvin served as an elected representative for the Student Bar Association, the Black Law Students Association, and as a Board Member of the Entertainment and Sports Law Society. Notably, he had the honor of being one of the original founders and creators of the FSU Entertainment and Sports Law Conference.



 Since law school, Mr. Robinson has focused his practice in Personal Injury, Criminal Defense, and Entertainment and Sports Law. Calvin worked as an NFL Contract Advisor, representing professional athletes in the negotiation of multi-million dollar contracts. His sports experience included working directly with NFL personnel and clients regarding the management of their careers both on and off the field. 

 As an attorney, Mr. Robinson has represented those injured as a result of Motor Vehicle Accidents, Slip & Falls, Dog Bites, Workplace Injuries, Medical Malpractice and Wrongful Death. As a former Public Defender, Mr. Robinson has and continues to fight for the accused in both criminal Misdemeanor and Felony cases. Calvin is active in the community and enjoys spending free time with his son, family, and friends. 

 Mr. Robinson is proud to have established The 813 Injury Law Group, allowing him the opportunity to provide big firm experience with small firm personal attention.
