Robbins Law Firm
132 Joe V Knox Ave, Mooresville, NC, USA

I am an estate planning attorney and mother to three amazing children! After working at very large law firms for over 18 years, I finally realized my dream of opening my own law firm where I could educate and serve families and small business owners that do not always have access to big firm attorneys. When I started my family 7 years ago, not only did I change as a person, but I started to look at my profession from an entirely new perspective...as a parent! I realized that parents with minor children are hugely under-served and overlooked by most law firms despite the fact that they probably need estate planning more than any other segment of our community. I am passionate about protecting my family, and I know I am no different than every other parent. My firm's number one priority to is to help families recognize how important estate planning is even if they don't think they have an "estate" worth planning because its not about the money, its about the ones that we love. I am so very blessed to be able to help families and family business owners in my community, and I really look forward to working with you!

Growing up in Central Florida as the son of a physician I remember conversations about lawsuits; about a family colleague who had been named in a suit and lost everything; about suits that could occur from automobile or private property accidents. My family felt they had an increased exposure and after graduating from the University of Central Florida with a degree in Economics I applied to Law School with the focus of helping others live without fear.

…when people meet me for the first time and learn that I am a lawyer, many are surprised. Their expectation is that lawyers are “flashy, slick operators” – and that’s just not who I am. I like to think my calm and caring demeanor and desire to educate and truly do the right things for my clients will set me apart from the stereotypical lawyer. Being to some extent the “anti-lawyer” has its pitfalls. Let me give you some examples … One of my law firms areas of focus is Estate Planning. I’m in competition with the “do it yourself on-line” resources all the way up to up to and including the big law firms that give the clients “just what they ask for” – (not what they need). On one end of the spectrum, you get what you pay for … the cheapest possible “estate plan“. But here’s the problem … most of those “plans” are inadequate and truly do not address all of the needs of the “virtual client” … and guess what – the virtual client will never know or be able to rectify the problem because they’re dead before anyone finds out. The responsibility to get the estate straightened out then falls to loved ones … at more legal expense typically than doing it right in the first place (!). Never mind that this time should be reserved for allowing the family to grieve. Have you ever had a Sam Kinison moment? Remember the comedian who used to punctuate his jokes by screaming the punch line? The client will never know BECAUSE THEY’RE DEAD! But this is no joke! Never mind that his estate was a shambles, this is all too often the reality of “cheap, on-line” solutions. At the other end of the spectrum is the client that says “Can you draw me up a will” … and that’s exactly what the lawyer does … without understanding or explaining the full scope of the clients’ estate. I call this “the path of least resistance” type of law firm … they’ll make a bit of money, but guess what … if it is not completely adequate the client will never know BECAUSE … you get the idea.
