Firm Overview

At Robinette Legal Group, we know personal injury law from both sides. Founding attorney Jeff Robinette began his career as an associate, and later partner, of one of West Virginia's most preeminent law firms representing insurance companies and defending against personal injury lawsuits. Today, he uses the knowledge gained from that experience to fight for injury victims. This valuable perspective lets us anticipate the strategies the insurance companies use against our clients. It helps us know the strengths and weaknesses of their cases, and how we can challenge their claims to obtain compensation for our clients.

Example cases

In January 2006, The Sago Mine Disaster in Sago, West Virginia, gave our attorneys the opportunity to stand in the shoes of families seeking justice and financial compensation for the unsafe working conditions and management negligence that led to the explosion and deaths. We were given the opportunity to represent plaintiffs and family members. Using our insurance defense experience, we were able to anticipate the defense lawyers' next steps and counter with solid evidence that made the difference in court. Since that time our law firm has handled many significant injury and death claims, but due to the confidential nature of the settlements, our law firm cannot publish all of these results. We can tell you, however, that Jeff Robinette is a member of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, whose membership includes many of the top trial lawyers in America.

Jeffery Robinette

Robinette Law Office was established in 1999 as primarily an insurance defense firm. As a result of firm growth, we later changed our name to Robinette Legal Group, PLLC. For most of our years of practice, our firm focused on insurance defense work. Our clients included many of the largest corporations in West Virginia and nationwide. That experience gave us skill and knowledge that we now bring to the plaintiff's side of the table. We know how the defense team will defend against your claim - and armed with this information, we develop the highest level of strategy to overcome the defense and prove your case at trial.
Today, we focus primarily on helping victims of negligence and illegal actions recover the full and fair money damages they deserve. Consider this: insurance companies, large corporations and professionals have no interest in making sure you are treated fairly. They have legal, financial and professional resources that individuals simply can't touch; that's why hiring the right law firm is so important. Robinette Legal Group has the professional resources to level the playing field.

Throughout your case, you will work with a single attorney. Our most experienced paralegal, Jean Maxwell, with more than 20 years of legal experience, will be an important part of handling the day-to-day legal details preparing your case. Jean is highly qualified and one of the most experienced paralegals you will find in our region.
