Sometimes lawyers need their own lawyers. When the ARDC comes knocking or an ethical dilemma materializes or a nontraditional practice opportunity presents, lawyers deserve the support and good counsel they give their own clients.
The lawyers of the Robinson Law Group have a uniquely broad command of the law of professional responsibility, not only as it plays out in the arena of attorney discipline, but also as that law guides choices lawyers face in representing clients and in structuring their practices to be competitive in today’s business realities. We value opportunities to guide colleagues to safe ground when crises arise, to provide a solid ethical foundation for colleagues’ practices, and to provide astute and rigorous defense of colleagues facing disciplinary inquiries and prosecutions.
These can be hard times to be lawyers. Clients are economically pressed, litigation is financially and personally brutal, and the future can be disconcertingly uncertain.
But these are also times of great opportunity. We are honored to be counselors to the counselors as our profession moves into new and better ways to provide legal services to the people and institutions of our times.
