Scott J. Robinson is the latest addition to the Schneider, Smeltz, Ranney & LaFond (SSRL) team, a Cleveland based civil practice law firm. He joins SSRL as an Associate and plans to grow his practice in the firm’s Labor and Employment, Litigation, and Product Liability departments.

Managing Partner, James D. Vail, states, “We are delighted that Scott agreed to join the firm. His skill and experience in a wide variety of complex litigation matters will provide a great resource to our clients.” Robinson’s primary practice area is Litigation, as he has a widespread knowledge of Commercial Litigation, Labor and Employment Litigation, and Products Liability Litigation. He has substantial experience defending companies in commercial disputes in both federal and state courts. He has successfully litigated products liability and consumer actions matters, and he has broad appellate experience.

As he grows his practice at SSRL, Robinson’s commitment is to meet the standard of excellence held by the attorneys and staff at the firm. He will continue working toward solving complex problems for his clients. Robinson comments on the importance of delivering excellent client service, “Clients in need of legal help want answers, not excuses. To get them those solutions, they deserve the best advice and counsel that I can give them. I enjoy making sense of the sometimes opaque world of commercial litigation.”

Before joining the SSRL team, Robinson developed his legal skills at other local law firms while helping his clients succeed in state and federal court during both the trial and the appellate process. He also counseled clients on various employment law issues.

Robinson earned his J.D. from Cleveland-Marshall College of Law in 2001, Cum Laude; and a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Case Western Reserve University in 1998. He was admitted to practice in the State of Ohio in 2001 and the State of California in 2003. Robinson is also admitted to practice in the United States District Court for the Northern and Southern Districts of Ohio, the United States District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania, the Northern District of Illinois, United States District Court of Colorado, and the Seventh District Court of Appeals. His legal memberships currently include the Ohio State Bar Association and the Akron Bar Association. In both 2011 and 2012 he was named Ohio Super Lawyers Rising Star.

Robinson is a proud resident of Ohio City where he resides with his wife and two young sons. He is also a board member at Lutheran Chaplaincy Services.
