I had a very complicated situation with my previous employer, which made my case difficult at best. Robyn spent 10 months defending my employee rights and never gave up through multiple hearings and appeals. She was always professional to me as well as the other people attending the hearings. She read all of the exhibits and researched my situation so as to represent me with a clear understanding of my case. When additional exhibits were presented by the employer, she would follow up with me in order to ensure that there were no surprises at the hearing. Robyn worked very hard for me, and she made sure that I never felt alone though out this whole complicated and confusing process.

I was caught in a bureaucratic nightmare facing a potentially expensive benefit overpayment issue with the State Employment Security. It was complicated and all my attempts to get it worked out without a hearing failed. With minimal review of my case, Robyn astutely zeroed in on the salient points of law, broke it down and explained the concepts in language I could understand and quickly prepped me to self-advocate in my hearing. She responded quickly on short notice when I had scheduling changes and answered follow-up questions succinctly. Most important, the points of law she armed me with impressed the Judge and I ended up winning my case on those points. I cannot thank her enough and would recommend her to anyone who requires counsel.

When I met Robyn, I was under severe stress and distraught over complex and disturbing circumstances that occurred as a result of a former employer. I was a wreck. I had never been through a legal process before and I was overwhelmed. Robyn took the time to explain the process to me and the strong points in my case. She has heart, and was able to make me feel more confident about my case - being a little person up against a gigantic employer. She also made me take a hard and serious look at the case in reverse perspective. Although she showed empathy and heart, she never deviated from a very focused and analytical formula, which proved to be a successful legal triumph under the complexities of my case. Robyn is a true professional, who is gifted with the ability to remain objective without letting her tremendous heart get in the way. I was lucky to have had such great representation, and I attribute the positive outcome in my case to her hard work, ethics and diligence.

I first knew Robyn when she worked as a student intern for the Seattle Community Law Center (SCLC) while I was executive director of that organization, and now Robyn and I serve together on the board of directors of SCLC. Robyn is a smart, dedicated and compassionate advocate for the legal rights of the poor and underserved. I would recommend her services without reservation.
