Practice area

Stephen Robbins was born in Olympia, Washington and raised in Albany, Oregon. He received his bachelor’s degree in Spanish Translation from Brigham Young University, and his law degree from the University of Oregon.

Stephen first became familiar with the plight of immigrants while living in the Canary Islands. He got to know many undocumented workers from throughout Africa and Latin America who had come to Spain in search of a better life. Unfortunately, these immigrants were often forced to deal with discrimination and poor working conditions. Stephen hoped to one day put his education to use by defending the rights of those who found themselves at the margins of society.

After his first year of law school, Stephen went to Peru and worked as an intern on a juvenile rights program sponsored in part by the inter-American Development Bank. During that time he worked with local judges and law enforcement officials to promote alternative sentencing for youth that focused on teaching social responsibility.

Stephen later worked as an intern at the Embassy of Peru in Washington, D.C., and formed part of the Judicial Cooperation Team. He helped translate important documents, and worked on facilitating extradition and prisoner transfer requests.

Stephen graduated from the University Of Oregon School Of Law in December, 2010, and is a member of the Oregon Bar.

He enjoys basketball, following developments in politics and the media, and reading. Stephen has been practicing immigration law in Yakima since May of 2011.

Stephen Robbins y Josselyn son los mejores
Stephen Robbins & his team are super, they’re thorough, follow through, committed, responsive & patient. I am thankful to have a premier team lead my mother & I to permanent residency. They committed to our case for over 8 years & advocated for us. They’re quick to respond, process documents & answer questions. They were specific & clear about the documents, how to sign them & what information to obtain. Living in Seattle, they made it accessible & simple to work with them, mailing documents, answering questions etc. Stephen Robbins & his team successfully lead other family to legal status. If you need representation or a consult, Stephen Robbins is the one. Hire him, he is the one. You will not find a better attorney.

Stephen Robbins helped my folks out with the immigration process. Legal technicalities and things of the like were put in easy to comprehend terms. This not only helped us speed up immigration processes but also helped us put faith in those who were representing us. Any questions were met with prompt and detailed answers. I'm proud to say that Stephen Robbins successfully helped my folks obtain legal status here the 'States. Stephen Robbins ayudó a mis padres con el proceso de inmigración. Los tecnicismos legales y cosas por el estilo fueron puestos en términos fáciles de comprender. Esto no sólo nos ayudó a acelerar los procesos de inmigración, sino que también nos ayudó a poner la fe en los que nos representaban. Cualquier pregunta fue respondida con prontitud y detalle. Estoy orgulloso de decir que Stephen Robbins ayudó con éxito a mis padres a obtener un estatus legal aquí en los Estados Unidos.

Trustworthy, knowledgeable, and dependable.
We consulted with Mr. Robins and explained our case. He was straight forward with his thoughts on our case and the options we had. He is very patient, kind, and knowledgeable. We hired him and he did a great job of walking us every step of the way. We attempted to adjust, but weren't successful so my husband and I had to file a different petition. He answered all of our questions (even answered a few of them a couple times, given the process takes a couple years and we tend to need refreshers). Mr. Robins helped me get my residency visa approved, we are very grateful to him for all of his guidance. He helped make the process as smooth and Hassle free as possible.
