SARASOTA, Fla. – Bill Robertson, a fifth-generation Sarasota attorney, recently opened The Robertson Law Firm, PA in downtown Sarasota.
This year, the Sarasota native returned to his roots and opened The Robertson Law Firm after a 36-year career at Kirk-Pinkerton, PA. Situated at 1990 Ninth St. in suite 100, Robertson continues to focus exclusively on personal injury, wrongful death and product liability cases.
With more than 36 years of experience, Robertson has a lengthy and robust background in personal injury law and has recovered more than $100 million for clients throughout his career. He represents clients throughout the state who have been injured or lost a loved one as the result of another’s negligence.
Robertson was heavily involved in helping Florida businesses and cities fight back after the BP oil spill, securing more than $35 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’m so proud to return to my roots and follow in my family’s legal legacy that started when my grandfather and great grandfather founded Robertson and Robertson in 1925,” said Robertson. “I always had the desire to eventually continue that legacy and serve Sarasota and southwest Florida under the Robertson name. I plan to carry on that proud tradition and help people in their time of need.”
Robertson’s family played an integral part of the development of southwest Florida and represented prominent clients like John Ringling and other pioneers in the community.
This year, Robertson received numerous peer-nominated national and regional professional honors. He was selected as a Florida Super Lawyers recipient, which is reserved for less than 5 percent of attorneys in the state, and received the AV Preeminent Peer Review Rating for the 20th consecutive year by Martindale-Hubbell, the highest peer review rating in legal ability and ethical standards awarded to only 10 percent of lawyers in the country. He was also nominated for America’s Most Honored Lawyers by the American Registry and America’s Top High Stakes Litigators for southern Florida.
