Ryan RobertsonPartner - Criminal Defense
The legal process can be scary and people face many hard questions. Attorneys should be compassionate and zealous advocates for their clients in ensuring that the process does not become overwhelming, and that is what I bring to the table.
Ryan Robertson is a Partner at Robinson & Henry. He leads the firm’s Criminal Defense Team. Prior to entering private practice, Ryan served as a Deputy District Attorney for the 4th Judicial District Attorney’s Office in El Paso and Teller Counties. During his time in the DA’s office, Ryan prosecuted a wide range of criminal cases, including homicides, sexual assaults, and domestic violence offenses.
A zealous advocate for his clients in the courtroom and at the negotiation table, Ryan is fully prepared to fight for them. As a former deputy district attorney, Ryan has first-hand insight into how the prosecution will try to prove his client’s guilt at trial. This experience allows Ryan to provide clients with a more well-rounded and effective representation.
An empathetic attorney and a good listener, Ryan understands his clients risk losing everything from their reputation to their freedom if they are convicted. He knows sugarcoating their case’s outlook does not benefit them. Instead, Ryan is always forthright about the strength of the prosecution’s case, giving clients the “good and bad” no matter the circumstances.
Ryan thoroughly analyzes every aspect of a case to develop the best practicable approach to achieve the most favorable outcome. Clients receive a 360-degree review of their case’s possible scenarios. For example, if a client receives a plea deal offer, Ryan will demonstrate to the client how accepting a sentence may mitigate the possible short- and long-term damage they could face should they lose at trial.
When Ryan is away from the office, he relishes quality time with his girlfriend and their pets. Ryan enjoys trivia, and he participates in a burgeoning form of entertainment called escape rooms where players use their wits to solve clues to “escape” enclosed spaces. A native of Philadelphia, Ryan is an avid Eagles fan. Fly, Eagles, Fly!
“[Ryan] was extremely professional and a pleasure to have on my team. Really couldn’t ask for anyone better! He won my case and made the anxiety of it all melt away. Thank you so much. I really appreciate everything you all have done for me.” —India
“I had Mr. Ryan Robertson to represent me for the past 11 months. I was facing some serious charges…He understood my stress and anxiety level and would take the majority of it away from me. I was very happy with the outcome! Very professional and always represented me to the fullest!” —Auomanu
