About John

Learn John’s areas of practice.

I grew up in Mesquite Texas.  My interest in law began at a young age from stories my father, who worked as a teacher in the Texas prisons, would tell me.  I remember reading through the Texas Penal Code when I was 12 years old and memorizing penalty ranges for various crimes.  I also was very interested in cars from an early age and began working on them in my teens.   I attended Texas A & M and the University of Texas at Arlington.  During college I worked various jobs including the assembly line at General Motors in Arlington, a runner for a lawfirm and as a auto mechanic.  The law and cars have always been a hobby and more for me.  After graduating from The University of Oklahoma College of Law in 1991 I immediately began taking criminal cases as a defense lawyer.  Over the years I have dealt with literally thousands of cases from shoplifting to murder.  It is always a challenge to analyze every case in detail and figure out how to attain the best possible result for the client given the circumstances and facts of the case.  Since 1991 I have also practiced personal injury, family and bankruptcy law.  As with any type of case, careful analysis of the facts of these cases as it applies to the law is paramount in attaining the best result for the client.

Great Attorney!
I hired John for a misdemeanor case in Dallas County. He is professional and made sure my rights were protected while being upfront and honest; a rarity among attorneys! His assistant kept me up to date on the process and my case was dismissed. He is the only attorney worth hiring in the metroplex in my opinion, hopefully I never have to use him ever again but if I do he will most definitely be the one I call.

Hardworking, ethical, and highly recommended!
I highly recommend John Robinson for your legal needs. He represented me in a serious DWI case and got me an amazing deal! I have three children and a job I couldn't afford to lose. John helped me be able to stay free with my family and keep my job. John was thorough and answered all of my questions and concerns along the way. Once my case was completed, I still needed assistance from John in being able to regain my license. He put forth exta effort in helping me obtain my license that most attorneys would not have done. John Robinson is skilled in what he does and was straightforward with me regarding the possible outcomes in my case. I highly recommend John Robinson; he takes his cases seriously and will get you the best possible outcome.

Hit and Run! Thanks for all you do, Mr. John W. Robinson and your special staff!
I had a Hit and Run a while back. I would recommend Mr. Robinson for any felony case since at the time I did not have an attorney and the court had appointed or told me to get ahold of Mr. Robinson which I did. Mr. Robinson handled all the court matters in a timely manner. If you ever encounter a problem where you need an excellent attorney I would recommend Mr. John W. Robinson anytime. Plus his staff is extremely helpful. Thanks once again.

Great Lawyer!
He seemed to know a great deal about the criminal court system and what needed to be done to obtain my dismissal . He was very helpful in explaining to me how long the process would take and I would recommend him to anyone who needed a lawyer in criminal court.

Fantastic lawyer!
John has demonstrated the utmost professionalism, dedication and perseverance throughout this case. He has truly elevated my opinion of attorneys. I do not think there is a more honest straightforward attorney in Texas. Furthermore, John seemed to actually care about the person as well as the case. Highly recommended!

Best Criminal Lawyer ever!!!
John was highly professional, direct, and courteous. He listed to all of my concerns and addressed them accordingly. His efforts resulted in the best possible outcome for my case. I will always refer people to him. And though I hope I never need his services again, he will be the first person I go to should the need ever arise.

Diplomacy a strong suit
My case was an uphill battle against a strong political current not to settle but Mr. Robinson still managed to work out plea arrangement using excellent diplomatic skills.

Horrible Communication
I hired Mr. Robinson and in our consultation he actually spent over an hour with me after that he acted too busy to even talk to me all of our conversations were held in the elevator he talked very fast and soft I would never hire him again I finally accepted a plea bargain and he was not even in court when I did.
