About William

Learn William’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Personal injury
    In addition to vehicle related injuries: Third Party L &I claims, products liability, heavy equipment, fork lifts, power equipment, premises liability, trip and fall cases. I know the tricks insurance companies and their "experts" play and I am prepared to go the distance to get a just result. Free consultation, no recovery no fee in these cases.

    37 years

  2. Car accident
    Auto, Truck, Motorcycle, Commercial Vehicles, Federal and State owned vehicles Federal Tort Claims Act cases. I have authored many articles and taught numerous seminars regarding the handling of automobile collisions. Not every case requires a lawyer. In many uncomplicated cases I will try to help you settle your case yourself if there is any hope you can do so. (We are talking about insurance companies though.) Free consultation, no recovery no fee.

    37 years

  3. Motorcycle accident
    Aggressive representation of injured riders in difficult liability and recovery situations requiring aggressive investigation and litigation. Special fee arrangements for cases of inadequate recovery/assets. Assistance with lien and subrogation issues. Debunking the defense expert is my specialty. Call as soon as you can, unlike most car crashes very bad things can happen if you don't call early in the case.

    40 years

  4. Animal and dog bites

  5. Insurance

    40 years

  6. Slip and fall accident

  7. Wrongful death

  8. Trucking accident

  9. Brain injury

  10. Defective and dangerous products

  11. Spinal cord injury

When I was 16 a drunk driver ran a stop sign and hit me. He was so far gone he couldn't get out of the car without help. His insurance company blamed me. I had to hire an attorney just to get my motorcycle fixed. I decided to become a lawyer and work to hold people like that and their insurance companies responsible for the harm caused.

My primary areas of practice are personal injury, commercial truck and motorcyle crashes, and insurance disputes. I also represent consumers victimized by debt collection violations, fraud schemes including "FRS" Foreclosure Rescue Scams and equity skimming. Complex and difficult liability cases are welcome. We have made law in many areas over the past 27 years. These include insurance, Barney v. Safeco, commercial law, Kysar v. Lambert, and insurance bad faith, Truck Insurance Exchange v. Vanport Homes, PIP insurance coverage requiring repayment of PTO used due to an injury, Boag v. Farmers Insurance. I wrote the WSAJ Deskbook chapter on "low visible property damage" cases.

I have successfully litigated wrongful death, commercial vehicle (tractor-trailer, Fed Ex, UPS etc), motorcycle and automobile cases obtaining verdicts and settlements. Most cases are referred by other lawyers, former clients and doctors whom I have worked with in the past.

I always try to make time for every caller but I may not be able to respond to every message. If you don't have a case I will tell you and try help you find someone to assist with a second opinion. If you can handle the matter without a lawyer I will try to help you do so. Calls regarding Pro bono and landlord tenant cases will be returned when possible, such cases must be screened by the Clark County Volunteer Lawyer Program via the CLEAR line and for those over 60 .

Bill Robison is a great personal injury attorney.
I was fortunate enough to have friends in the field of law that knew Bill. He came highly recommended as an attorney to represent me after a recent auto accident injury. I gave him a call and boy am I glad I did! First of all, he knew quite a bit about my injury and helped me navigate finding the right doctors and treatments. Even with a good primary care physician, I couldn’t quite seem to figure out a roadmap that would help me address my injury and pain. But most importantly, he did a great job negotiating an excellent settlement for me. Not only that, Bill was able to make this happen before our court date. For a personal injury attorney, I would go nowhere else. Thank you Bill Robison! I am so glad to know you.

Bill Robison - excellent strategist - excellent attorney!
Bill Robison is an excellent and experienced personal injury attorney.I was hospitalized from an auto accident. The insurance company refused to pay anything and I was accused of things I didn't do, by the other driver and witness. My case required a great attorney and talented strategist for the truth of what actually happened in the accident to be revealed. Bills well prepared,methodical questioning in the deposition, combined with how he introduced the evidence, forced the truth to come out. Bill tailored his representation from calm, to appropriate aggressive targeted questions. Impressive balance that brought results! This led to compensation from the insurance company. Hospital bills were also handled in such a way to bring about the best financial stress relief for me .Bill is personable, and has a down to earth quality to his personality,which made a stressful situation easier to deal with .I highly recommend Bill Robison for his well prepared and strategic  approach,his calm to aggressive representation, and personable demeanor with his clients.

Exceeds expectation!
Bill Robison took my car accident case after I had muddled through it for over a year. I was injured severely by a 16 year old driver and had the expectation that the insurance companies would take care of me and all the bills and my car.... after a little over a year I decided I couldn't do it anymore. I contacted Bill Robison by the recommendation of a friend and it was the best decision I have EVER made. He walked me through the process, helped me understand why I wasn't getting any help from either my company or the other drivers. After he took my case I was able to concentrate on healing and moving forward with my life! Bill is the absolute best person I have ever had the pleasure of working with and he is an incredible attorney! His office staff is also amazing and their communication is excellent. You always feel they are working on just your case, that you are the priority of the day!

This Guy is a Great Lawyer and Really Does His Homework
I would say that 99.999999% of the Attorneys that oppose Bill Robison will lose. He is an Absolute Professional, the kind you see winning on TV, except he is real and never gets caught unprepared. I would use him again for any legal work I want done. He has also represented my nephew in a wrongful death lawsuit and was extremely good at that as well. He is very responsive to his clients needs and really cares about each and everyone he represents. He represents them as if they were his best friend or part of his immediate family. He will not do anything that is unethical, his Integrity is beyond reproach and is 100% Trustworthy. You will not find a better Attorney to represent you!!
