Joel Robbins and John Curtin were recently selected by their peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America© 2015 in the fields of Personal Injury Litigation- Plaintiffs. Joel was also selected for the practice areas of Civil Rights Law and Personal Injury Litigation – Defendants.

Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers® has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey. Over 52,000 leading attorneys cast more than 5.5 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas. Lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed; therefore inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”

Who says attorneys and judges don’t know how to have a good time?

Meet our new mascot, Mr. Chesterton

On February 11, 2014

Attorney John Curtin surprised us all, but perhaps his family the most when, after 30 “dogless” years, he purchased an English Bulldog. John says, “I’ve always wanted a bulldog. My wife and daughter didn’t, then one day they met Mr. Chesterton.”

Since Mr. Chesterton came into John’s life around Christmas, he has become a fixture at the law firm where he shares an office with John.

I asked John to provide me with a favorite dog quote:
It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.  ~Mark Twain

Is there new love in the air at Robbins & Curtin? I think the photo speaks for itself…
