Cameron Robinson Esq.
District of Columbia and Maryland Licensed Attorney
Cameron Robinson, Esq.
I grew up in a home where my father was a prominent Criminal Defense lawyer. His cases were fascinating and I always felt it was something I wanted to do. Growing up he was always sharing stories and strategies of his cases, I would watch him practice his final arguments and be a “pretend juror.” As a result, I always felt I had a masters degree in criminal law just by listening to him. He was a commentator on several TV networks. He tried over 300 jury trials across the US and won over 70 percent of them. He was described as the Washingtonian Magazine, “If your case is hopeless, hire Kenny Robinson.”
So my senior year of High School, I worked as an investigator in his firm, The Robinson Law Firm. The following year I attended the Pennsylvania State University where I earned a major in English Writing. During my college year summers I worked as an investigator for the Public Defender Office in Washington, DC and I also worked at CNN writing scripts for Bernie Shaw.
After Graduating from The Pennsylvania State University in May of 1992, I entered the Masters program at Georgetown University in Liberal studies with an emphasis in Public Policy. I completed my Masters in 1994. During graduate school I worked for my father as a paralegal for the Robinson Law firm. After that I went to the District of Columbia School of Law and graduated in 1997 with my Juris Doctorate. I am Licensed in Maryland and the District of Columbia. I also have my Real Estate License in Maryland and Virginia.
After passing the Bar exams, I worked at the Robinson Law firm where I assisted on several white collar cases in the federal court and had several cases in the Prince George’s County Circuit Court. In 1998 I second chaired with my father in a capital murder case involving two defendants. I was offered a position as an Assistant State Attorney for Prince George’s County in 1999 but turned the position down due to being pregnant with my first child.
I had two other children and decided to stay home and raise them. As the children got older I slowly began practicing law again. I hung a shingle in Rockville, MD near the courthouse and focused on practicing criminal law. After being a solo practitioner, I was a contract lawyer working for Covington and Burling.
In 2016 my mother passed away and at that time I took over her position as the director of the program she created for learning disabled adults, like my sister called STRIVE. I did this for a couple years before deciding to return to law again.
My father used to say that the Harvard law school where he lectured said, “reasonable doubt for a reasonable price.” I adopted that slogan and intend to do some pro bono work in my practice. I am an advocate for social injustice, growing up with a disabled sister I can appreciate and understand that everyone needs a voice and an advocate. One thing that appealed to me when I worked at the Public Defender's office was that they represent the indigent, the poor and the underprivileged and that is how I think all lawyers should represent people. I hope that I can do the same thing now that I have decided to go back into law.
My firm specializes in Criminal law including but not limited to misdemeanors (traffic, DUI, possession, petty theft) and felonies. I also practice Personal Injury and some Divorce law. Please feel free to contact me for a free consultation.
