As criminal defense lawyers go, Robb is one of the best. Working with him on numerous and varied matters, I know him to be caring, dedicated and extremely thorough in all his legal matters. More importantly, his trial skills are outstanding. In fact, they are so good that he is often called upon by different bar organizations to teach them to their membership. That said, it is not debatable that he is a lawyer's lawyer in the eyes of his peers. Accordingly, I highly endorse this lawyer as a great defender of Constitutional Rights and Liberties. He is a zealous advocate for his clients and will always be there for them, both personally and professionally.
