Mr. Robinson has been a resident of Gig Harbor since 1977.  At that time he served with Puget Sound Legal Assistance Foundation in Tacoma, where he began the Senior Citizen Law Project.  He became actively involved in senior citizens’ issues and helped to form several non-profit corporations for organizations dedicated to protecting senior citizens.  Mr. Robinson also served for approximately 15 years as legal counsel for the veterans at the Washington State Veterans Home in Retsil, Washington.

Mr. Robinson opened his private law practice in Gig Harbor, Washington, in 1980, with an emphasis on complex family law litigation, as well as civil litigation.  He is active in the Tacoma Pierce County Bar Association, where he has served as Chairperson of both the Legal Assistance and Membership committees.  He has been a speaker at family law seminars.

He remains an active member in the Gig Harbor and greater Pierce County communities.  He is a longstanding member and has also served on the Board of Directors of the Gig Harbor Lions Club.  Additionally, Mr. Robinson was a founding member and served on the Board of Directors of the Gig Harbor Chamber of Commerce. He has served as chairperson of the Peninsula Advisory Commission (a growth management committee serving the Gig Harbor Peninsula), has acted as Director of the Peninsula Heritage Land Trust, and has also served as a Land Use Deputy Hearings Examiner for Pierce County.  He was a member of the Citizen Advisory Board and assisted in developing the 1986 Growth Management Act.

Mr. Robinson’s practice ultimately became focused on complex custody and divorce matters.  He has litigated cases with significant property issues, as well as regarding the validity of Prenuptial Agreements and Property Settlement Agreements.  Mr. Robinson has litigated cases between non-married domestic partners as well as same-sex couples.  He believes that clients should understand the legal process and be fully-informed.  While he has litigated many cases with successful results, he believes that working toward a satisfactory resolution through negotiation and mediation is in the best interest of all and is the priority in every case.

After over 35 years of practice, Mr. Robinson is well-respected by his peers for both his knowledge of the law and his advocacy for his clients.
