About

Jack Robinson

Families going through times of crisis deserve to have someone in their corner who is willing to truly listen.

I know what it’s like to go through a contentious divorce. And I’ve seen firsthand how vital estate planning is to safeguarding your family’s future.

That’s why I’ve dedicated my career to helping clients make informed decisions to keep their families moving forward toward a better tomorrow.

“It’s hard to find a lawyer you can trust, and we found it with Jack Robinson.”

– Joann Moreno

I always knew I wanted to be a lawyer.

 

But before taking that first step toward my law degree, I spent several years after college in the working world.

When I was in my early 30s, I finally accomplished my lifelong dream of becoming an attorney, graduating from Campbell University School of Law in North Carolina.

Early on, I was attracted to litigation, and I spent 15 years doing personal injury plaintiff work, particularly focusing on medical malpractice cases.

Then a few things in my life shifted my focus: a divorce after 25 years that required the support and friendship of a good lawyer. At the same time, I saw how my parents’ proactive estate planning allowed my dad to have an income even after my mother passed away.

I realized that helping people through their estate planning and family law issues improved people’s quality of life just as much as helping them fight for compensation after an injury – just in a different way.

That’s when I decided to focus my practice on providing competent, compassionate representation for familes going through a crisis.

In the years since, I’ve seen long, painful probate cases that almost destroyed families, and family law cases where divorcing couples fight about whether the sun comes up in the east.

But I’ve also helped families preserve what they’ve created in their life, cross bridges to rekindle familial relationships, and set aside their differences for the sake of their children. 

Regardless of the type of case that comes through my door, I want to understand where my clients are coming from. That understanding comes from taking the time to listen to their story, discussing all the potential options for moving forward, and helping them decide which solutions best fit their needs.

I have two amazing, brilliant sons and am blessed to have good relationships with them and their families. I’m also married to the love of my life, Madonna. We are very active in our church and have a wonderful group of friends there. Additionally, I’ve spent much of my free time in the last twenty years doing pro bono work in the local legal community. I have been named the Volunteer Attorney of the Year by Legal Aid of Northwest Texas for eight of the last ten years.

I’m honored to do this work helping families safeguard their future. Seeing the happiness and peace of mind that comes from the resolution of their cases really is why I do what I do.

I didn’t become a lawyer to make a buck off my clients. I became a lawyer so that anyone who walks through my doors leaves closer to their goals than when they came in. My goal with every client is to help them build an airtight legal plan that solves their problem and helps them to protect their family’s future.
