As a former client once facing a similar situation herself, she said she knows what it feels like to entrust another person with that very important and personal part of life.
Robertson said she uses the knowledge gained from her education at UALR to advocate for the many clients she has served since establishing her own law office over 12 years ago.
A former Donaghey Scholar, she graduated magna cum laude from UALR in 1997 and was admitted to the Arkansas Bar following graduation from the UALR Bowen School of Law.
“The Donaghey Scholars program specifically, and the university in general, opened so many doors for me,” she said.
“The many student organizations offered on campus, in addition to the curriculum and professors, provided the perfect balance of real-world preparation with academic enhancement.”
Today, Robertson Law Firm offers four locations and four attorneys that serve most of Arkansas in the areas of family and criminal law. Robertson said her firm’s success could be partially attributed to the professors at UALR who always encouraged her to follow her dreams.
“The law can be unpredictable or even unfair,” she said. “But what is predictable is the dedication, preparation, and level of competency I am able to bring to each of my clients’ cases.”
