Originally from West Texas, Robbie considers San Antonio home now. She graduated from St. Mary’s School of Law in San Antonio in 2001 and immediately began working at the District Attorney’s office. Although she knew she wanted to be a criminal defense attorney, she had been told by mentor’s that the best defense attorneys were prosecutors first. After working at the Bexar County District Attorney’s office she became an Assistant United States Attorney which only helped increase her knowledge of how to effectively evaluate and try cases. Robbie left the U.S. Attorney’s office to become a criminal defense attorney and has been extremely successful in her representation of clients.
She has tried many state and federal cases as both a prosecutor and as a defense attorney. As a defense attorney, her efforts and wins for her clients have earned her the nickname, “The Beast”, among many of her clients. It’s a nickname she laughs off, but has said it does make her feel proud that her clients know she will always fight hard and they appreciate the efforts she puts into each case.
Being able to do what you love and have real passion for is a key part of her success. Robbie said although the work is hard and can require lots of long hours, the ability to help people in their most trying times is worth it. As a single mom running her own practice, Robbie said it makes her proud that her daughter knows that what she is doing makes a real difference in people’s lives and her daughter is learning the same values Robbie was taught by her parents: to be anything great, you have to work hard.
