I hired Mr. Robbins to serve as local counsel in a very complex intellectual property infringement and antitrust matter. He is responsive, smart, an excellent writer, and familiar with the local judges and court rules. The Local Rules in the Northern District of California courts are Byzantine and Mr. Robbins' experience has helped me to avoid several missteps.

Mr. Robbins was diligent and thorough. He advised me wisely and yet followed my directive as requested. He did a great job under somewhat difficult circumstances.

Once in a blue moon does a lawyer come along and help a person in one of the most difficult moments in their life - and do a job that goes beyond what is expected as an attorney. Douglas Robbins was that lawyer for me. I had seven years of work invested my project and my entire life savings invested. All of this was on the line. Mr. Robbins gave me sound legal advice - and although we both did our best to head off litigation - at the end of the day it was unavoidable. Not only did we prevail on the action as plaintiffs, we did so, in my opinion, by taking the "high road". Mr. Robbins did an exemplary job across the board. He went far beyond the call of duty in this case and helped save my life's work. I highly and enthusiastically recommend Mr. Douglas Robbins.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
I endorse this lawyer. I have worked with Doug as a co-mediator, in which he proved himself to be hardworking, prepared, knowledgeable about the law, thoughtful, and extremely intelligent. After working with Doug as a mediator, I knew his potential as an attorney (and partner of a successful law firm) and our office enthusiastically referred a client to him. Doug was able to settle the client's matter for a great deal higher than the client expected. Outstanding attorney!
