What others have said about Hon. Mary Lou Robinson


Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: 9633
Judge Robinson is smart, serious, and can be really funny in private. She will usually rule for the government in criminal motion practice, but if the matter is clear, she will be glad to support the defense. She will listen to well argued punishment alternatives, even though she usually follows the guidelines. Her clerk is a terrific lawyer who makes it easy to get work done, and who will one day make a great judge, as well. I like Judge Robinson a lot, and in my opinion, it will be a black day when she steps down or dies. Probably dies - on the bench. Get your ruling out of her dying breath!

Court Staff

Comment #: 3650
Extremely smart, but old school. If you approach the jury or witness without permission, you will get cut down immediately.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 3304
Very formal in courtroom with very strict rules about lawyer conduct (where to stand, ask to approach witness, etc.).
