Expert Witness Services

Mary Robinson has served as a testifying or consulting expert witness in a multitude of cases involving issues of lawyer professional responsibility.  Most have been legal malpractice cases, but her opinion has also been sought in matters where lawyers are facing sanctions, on fee disputes, and on motions to disqualify counsel.

Ms. Robinson believes that a careful understanding of the factual context of the case is critical for an expert opinion to have value, and she diligently undertakes a review and analysis of the documents and testimony that reveal that context.  She values practical application of ethical precepts and clarity in reporting conclusions, and she respects the importance of working with trial counsel to understand litigation goals and strategy.
