  • Charles Jason London

    David Robbins's extremely proficient results speak for themselves. People who have seen him try jury cases say he is better than the "TV" lawyers. His general legal intellect is more than impressive. You can feel safe in any situation whether it be a long term estate planning case involving complex paper work, or the need for him to think on his feet during a trail. He is a very rare combination of a lawyer who is fantastic with a jury in a court of law or making sure complex estate work is handled diligently, competently, skillfully. David is one lawyer that does not fear going to court, and he welcomes a jury with a smile. In short, if you want an amazing trial lawyer with the ability to handle complex legal matters, then I highly recommend Mr. Robbins.
