Question and Answer with Scott Robinson:

  1. What is your background? Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. Went to undergrad at Case Western Reserve Univ. (English Major) Went to law school at Cleveland State.
  2. What, or who, inspired you to go to law school? My grandfather was a juvenile judge. As a young kid, my mom always threatened that he would lock me up if I didn’t behave.
  3. If you were asked to give one piece of advice to graduating law students, what would your advice be? Think of your first ten years or so as an apprenticeship. Be more concerned about gaining experience than money. After about ten years, you aren’t going to catch many breaks if you make mistakes – so take advantage.
  4. If you could take two paid weeks off of work, where would you go or what would you do? Probably take my kids to Disney World.
  5. What challenges you the most? Breaking into new areas of the law is always a challenge, but a necessary one if you want to stay relevant in a rapidly changing world.

What is the one thing you cannot stand regarding the law/lawyers? Because of their position in society, lawyers are known for doing all sorts of things that get people upset, so it is hard to narrow it down to one. But, I will say that, of all the things I hear about, I have the least tolerance for lawyers who impermissibly put their own interests ahead of their client’s.
