Practice areas

I have been practicing law in Southwest Washington since 2006 and I love the people of this community. Most recently, I was the Chief Criminal Deputy Prosecuting Attorney for Skamania County Washington, while maintaining a limited private law practice. In that role I was successful in several difficult criminal jury trials. I was also Deputy Prosecutor for Clark County from 2012 to 2017. And before that I was a City Attorney for the City of Vancouver from 2009 to 2012. During my career I have prosecuted essentially every kind of crime including Homicide, Rape, Assault, Financial Fraud, Domestic Violence, Child Sex Abuse, and traffic offenses such as Vehicular Assault and Driving Under the Influence.

Quick divorce, fantastic job
I don’t usually leave too many reviews, but I have to say that Patrick did such a fantastic job on my divorce that I would certainly refer Patrick Robinson Esq to anybody with skepticism or any doubts whatsoever. Patrick communicated constantly. He kept everything in order and a prompt delivery of a certified divorce decree was in my hands in 90 days. Thanks Patrick I appreciate you.

A Compassionate and Caring Champion
At a time when our family was stunned and confused, Mr. Robinson took the time to understand the issues, educate and guide us through the legal process, and continuously demonstrated care and compassion for our son. You will not find a better attorney and should entrust him to find the best possible outcome for you/your family.

I was referred to Patrick by a family friend who spoke highly of him. From beginning to end Patrick was easy to communicate with both in person and via email. He always responded in a timely manner when i had questions. I felt my best interest was a priority, and he handled sensitive issues with with the utmost respect. I would recommend him without hesitation.

Not a good communicator
Did not communicate or provide any effective strategy. He was unprofessional, and always threatened to drop my case when he was questioned about his work ethic. .

Family Attorney | Mar 29
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Patrick is both a professional and strong advocate for his clients. I would refer friends and family in need of legal services his direction."
Criminal defense Attorney | May 08
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"One of the biggest compliments one attorney can pay another is to say they have an understanding of the law, removed from emotion. Now, emotion is a huge part of life, however when making a strategic decision, negotiating a case, or presenting to a jury most folks can see through theatrics- almost all attorneys can. So if you can't use emotion what is left? A solid understanding of the law. A good manner with people. Credibility. Patrick has all these characteristics. I endorse his work and look forward to working together for years to come."
