The law practice of Robbins & Curtin was formed in the summer of 2003. Both John Curtin and Joel Robbins came from midsized firms. They met after they both had left and were practicing plaintiff’s personal injury law. Joel knew John as a talented medical negligence lawyer and a skilled writer. Joel says, “Every time that I read something from John, whether it’s an article, a letter, or even an email, I’m glad that I’m his law partner. There are also many times that I hurt my side laughing. He’s got a great sense of humor which goes a long way in helping practice law.”
John noticed Joel because he took hard cases and won them at trial. “Joel was successful in trials that I didn’t think could be won. I thought: ‘I’d like to practice law with a guy like that.’” John says, “Practicing with Joel is a pleasure. Joel practices from his heart as well as his brain. He has a commitment to doing the right thing.”
Anne Findling and Joel Robbins had practiced law together in their first years. After Anne took a sabbatical to teach at a prestigious middle school in Phoenix, she started with Robbins & Curtin in 2006. Her passion for her clients is a point of pride.
Having joined in 2017, Jesse Showalter is the most recent addition to the firm.
