SARASOTA, Fla. – Bill Robertson, fifth-generation Sarasota personal injury attorney, is founding his own law firm, The Robertson Law Firm, PA, after a 34-year career at Kirk-Pinkerton, PA.
With more than 36 years of experience, Robertson has a lengthy and robust background in personal injury law and has recovered millions of dollars for clients throughout his career. He was heavily involved in helping Florida businesses and cities fight back after the BP oil spill, securing more than $30 million in damages after filing 115 claims for hotels, real estate firms and other businesses along with the cities of Sarasota and Bradenton Beach. He is also representing the City of Sarasota and the City of Palmetto in lawsuits to recover damages related to the opioid epidemic against major pharmaceutical manufacturers and distributors and is assisting veterans in a class action lawsuit against 3M regarding faulty earplugs issued to the military.
“I am extremely proud of the incredible work that was done serving this community by the partners, associates and staff at Kirk-Pinkerton over the past few decades,” said Robertson. “I am honored to have been part of such a wonderful group of individuals.”
Robertson’s great grandfather and grandfather opened the Robertson and Robertson Law Firm in Sarasota in 1925 and represented John Ringling and other pioneers of the community. At The Robertson Law Firm, Robertson will continue his personal injury and wrongful death practice, representing those who have been injured or killed as a result of others’ negligence.
“My proud family legacy was an integral part of the growth of Sarasota as we know it,” said Robertson. “I look forward to continuing to serve my clients and this community as the Robertson family has proudly done for more than 90 years.”
