James E. Robinson
Mr. Robinson received a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics with Computer Science from MIT in 1988 and subsequently earned a Juris Doctor, cum laude, from the St. John’s University School of Law in 1992. Mr. Robinson received recognition for his writing ability at both institutions, including the AmJur Award for Excellence in Legal Writing.
Mr. Robinson practices in the area of commercial transactions, including contracts for technology companies, commercial leases, real estate transactions and issues related to the formation and licensing of professional practices, as well as in the area of civil litigation, including appeals, real property title disputes and business disputes.
For the first twelve years of his career, Mr. Robinson worked at one of Suffolk County’s oldest law firms. There, he focused on civil litigation as part of a general practice that also included real estate, commercial transactions and the representation of lenders in connection with both residential and commercial loans. During this time Mr. Robinson gained substantial experience in the area of mortgage foreclosures and was designated by a major national financial institution as one of two attorneys to oversee a portfolio of mortgages covering the entire State of New York. Another of Mr. Robinson’s areas of concentration was in briefing and arguing motions and appeals and his achievements in this regard included authoring a post-trial brief on damages in connection with a complex commercial case in federal court which resulted in an $18.9 million dollar judgment in favor of the firm’s client. Mr. Robinson subsequently joined one of Nassau County’s largest law firms, where he met Ms. Myers and ultimately joined her in forming the present firm.
Mr. Robinson is admitted to practice before the Courts of the State of New York, the United States District Courts for the Eastern and Southern Districts of New York and the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.
