Right from the very first message, Belinda has helped me all the way. She's so caring, kind and intelligent. She has given 110% and is an absolute shining star in the world of legal. Her integrity, trust and ability to adapt to the curve balls thrown at her in my case were mind blowing.

Belinda is an exceptional criminal lawyer, her attention to detail and professionalism goes above and beyond any of my expectations. We heard about Belindas success with our friend's driving offences and we didn't hesitate to employ her services for our legal battle. Her expertise and knowledge of the law was incredible but she made the process so simple, as legal jargon goes over my head. It was such a stress free experience and we were so happy with the result. You will not be disappointed with Belinda and her excellent client care. We will be using her again in future. Thank you.

Your work ethic, passion & drive, commitment, caring attitude, professionalism and more is truly second to none! Thankyou again from myself and the family! X

Desmond Summerfield

I found Robinson Law to be very honest in the dealing of my matter. Another law firm quoted me $1500 and exaggerated the seriousness of my minor offence by saying I needed their representation or I would get a conviction recorded, just to get my business. I was actually only looking at a $400 fine as penalty and no conviction recorded. Robinson Law gave me honest advice about the penalty I was really looking at and cared about my best interests, and saved me money to pay my fine rather than exploiting my situation, which I appreciate very much, thank you Belinda.

Jesse Parker

Absolutely recommend! I hold Belinda’s legal advice and legal representation to the highest of levels. Easily contactable, listens to instruction yet gives advice if she thinks it’s not the best move, conducts herself with the up most professionalism. You will not regret putting your trust into Robinson Law to handle your matter.
