Criminal misdemeanors and traffic violations may be the one area that affects the greatest number of people. Municipal Court, Traffic Court or District Magistrate, is a great place where newer practitioners can get trial experience and meet more experienced attorneys.

While defense of criminal charges and serious motor vehicle charges may become an involved process requiring commitment and persistence, there are viable defenses and arguments that can achieve a successful result. Rather than simply suggest that a client plead guilty and avoid trial, an attorney should accept the challenge and apply his best legal talents to protect the client’s rights.

Jeffrey C. Robinson

Founding Attorney
Law Offices of Jeffrey C. Robinson

The idea for the Law Offices of Jeffrey C. Robinson Esq. was conceived in the Spring of 1992 when a relative was sentenced to what seemed an inordinate and unconscionable amount of time in prison for what Jeffrey C. Robinson Esq. thought was a petty offense. Realizing that because the relative was poor and lacked good representation for the petty matter in court, Mr. Robinson decided to attend law school with the intention of eventually opening a firm to represent the poor and indigent in our society with excellent, yet affordable, representation in Criminal and Civil matters before the Judicial System. Indeed, the firm serves as a champion for the people. Thus, on November 3, 2003, when the Law Offices of Jeffrey C. Robinson formally opened, it was the culmination of a dream that began in the Spring of 1992
