Firm Overview

Criminal Defense (Federal and State) and DUI Law Firm

My name is Laura Robinson and I am a very experienced, highly successful criminal defense attorney. I have represented clients in more than 1,000 felony cases. I have tried over 75 jury trials with excellent results.

In 2004, I opened up my own private practice in Oakland. I represent clients in any type of federal or state criminal matter. From my numerous years of experience as a criminal defense attorney, I have defended people in most every type of crime. I have a plethora of experience with drug crimes, weapons offenses, DUIs, assaults, the list goes on.

During my career, I have won many jury acquittals, gotten serious cases dismissed (such as murder and rape) and always fought for the best results possible. I have handled many high profile cases, including murder, rape and kidnapping.

I am dedicated to representing my clients as aggressively and effectively as possible. I have the reputation of a fighter who will pursue all legal means to provide the best defense possible. My reputation is among the most respected criminal defense attorneys in the area.

From 1988-2004, I worked as a public defender in Contra Costa County, where I was assigned serious and violent felonies. I was also involved with the training of other attorneys.

If you want straight and honest answers, please feel free to call. Beware of lawyers who claim they could guarantee victory, because there are no guarantees in life. However, It is crucial to select the best lawyer for you and your case.

I am available to appear anywhere in the state of California.
