KRISTEN L. ROBINSON

Senior Partner


Kristen Robinson

Kristen L. Robinson received her bachelor's degree from Hope College located in Holland, Michigan. She attended Detroit College of Law (which is now Michigan State University School of Law). She has the distinction of being a member of the last class to graduate in Detroit where she earned her law degree, with honors, cum laude. Kristen concentrates her practice in domestic relations litigation. She also has the capability to assist clients who desire to settle their cases on the terms that work for their respective families, rather than allowing the court process to dictate the important decisions in their lives. In addition to representing clients as an advocate, Kristen is a trained neutral mediator, chosen by other lawyers and appointed by the court to assist other parties in settling their family law matters. Kristen represents clients who have cases in Oakland County, Macomb County and Wayne County. She was elected by her peers to the 21-member State Bar of Michigan Family Law Council. The Council works to influence, analyze and advocate for family law related interests including legislation and court rules. In 2009 Kristen received a prestigious award from the Family Law Assistance Project in recognition for her legal assistance to the indigent clients of Oakland County. Kristen is member of the following organizations: State Bar of Michigan, Family Law Section; Oakland County Bar Association, Family Court Committee (past Chair); Oakland County Bar Foundation; Rochester Bar Association; and Michigan Inter-Professional Association.
