Car accident case
It's scary when you get in a bad car accident. I had a long case but Edward Robinson was an excellent lawyer. I highly recommend him and the team at Cannon and Dunphy. It's hard to decide what to do when you have a case but he really does the best job at explaining everything. I fully understood everything and he always answered all my questions. I am happy to say that my case is closed and settled fairly. Going through the legal process is hard but I would recommend Ed, he truly is the best.

Best advocate I could have ever hoped for
Ed Robinson and his team helped me through arguably one of the hardest experiences of my life! Any accident or injury can be scary, but a major one can be overwhelming. That’s where Ed comes in… He and his team held my hand through the entire process with extreme professionalism and transparency. He was always reachable and very communicative… he helped me manage my situation with complete attention as if I was their only case! I never felt like a number at all. Should you ever find yourself in an accident or personally injured in any way, there is no better advocate and champion than Ed and his team at Cannon and Dunphy. I cannot recommend them enough, and I am so grateful to have had Ed on my side!

Knowledgeable and Professional
I just finished my case with the representation of Ed Robinson at Cannon & Dunphy and could not be happier! Although my case was somewhat of a ‘roller coaster ride’ Ed persevered and I was continually impressed with his knowledge of the law and professionalism. Ed and Kendra were on top of all the details and made it effortless for me to remain informed throughout the process. It became very clear to me during depositions and mediation meetings that Ed is well respected by his peers in the legal profession. Ed has earned my respect and I will not hesitate to recommend him to friends and family that find themselves in need of an attorney. Thanks Ed!

Highly Recommend
After being hit and injured in a car accident, my elderly mother needed an attorney to ensure she was properly advocated for. Ed and his team were a pleasure to work with from start to finish. He took the time to explain the process and that my mom clearly understood things every step of the way. I would highly recommend Ed to anyone who finds themselves in this situation.

Exceeded my expectations
My husband & I worked Attorney Robinson & he was absolutely amazing. He came to the hospital within a day of calling to set up the consultation & continued to check in on my husband throughout his recovery. He would call on the weekends to give us an update & was nothing but upfront & honest with us about our case. He genuinely cares about his clients. He is hands down the best attorney in the industry that handles personal injury cases.

Trip and Fall Injury
After my wife's trip and fall injury Ed Robinson was recommended to us by an attorney we worked with on other matters. Throughout the development of the case backgound and numerous negotiations he kept us well informed. He was always responsive to questions we had in prompt and understandable manner. He worked hard to get a fair settlement from the insurance company. Ed was a very pleasant person to work with from start to completion.

Goes above and beyond!!!
I had an awkward case, and it was amazing how he went above and beyond of what he had to do. I was always in the know of what was going on and everything was explained, including if I chose one way or another. I highly recommend this firm!!!!

Nothing but the best!
Attorney Robinson was my legal representation for both my personal injury cases. Attorney Robinson is compassionate, extremely diligent, thorough and has a great attention to detail. When I needed an attorney for my second case, there was no doubt in my mind that Attorney Robinson was my choice for representation. His prior work made me feel comfortable and at ease knowing that I was in good hands. From start to finish he had nothing but my best interest at hand. I'm extremely satisfied what the outcome of both of my cases. I have recommended Attorney Robinson in the past and I will continue to recommend him again and again!

Fantastic Attorney!!!
Attorney Ed Robinson was very caring of my family and I from the day I contacted him. I was struck as a pedestrian by a hit and run driver and suffered multiple injuries. My case lasted almost 4 years in length and Attorney Robinson never once failed me or tried to get me to just settle my case. He wasn’t afraid of heading into the courtroom to fight for me, which is an attribute that seems to be very hard to find these days with some law firms. As a former Law Enforcement Officer, I have seen many Attorneys in the courtroom. I’ve always said, “you’ll never know how good your attorney is until you’ve see them in the courtroom”. Well Attorney Robinson far exceeded my expectations as the Defense kept adding Attorneys to the case to try to challenge him, in which they failed to succeed. Attorney Robinson has my utmost respect and I can’t thank him enough for helping me restore my life back to normal and for helping my family regain everything we lost.

"Attorney Ed Robinson is known as a State wide leader in personal injury representation. As a general practice attorney, I have reached out to Ed for advice many times. He's a true legal scholar and zealous advocate for those who have been injured. I've gone so far as to jokingly tell my wife that is something were to ever happen to me as the result someone else's negligence, call Ed Robinson to represent you and the family. A greater compliment I cannot give."
