Dwayne A. Robinson

Clients facing complex litigation call on Dwayne Robinson to help them navigate tough cases. Dwayne focuses his practice on appeals and commercial litigation in both state and federal court. He has achieved victories on appeal and at trial on questions related to federal jurisdiction, ownership disputes, insurance defense, class actions, and pro bono matters.

Dwayne understands that a company's most important strategic objectives are often achieved, or preserved, through litigation. Less often, a company's survival depends on the effectiveness of its litigation counsel. Dwayne focuses on being an advisor to clients with complex litigation challenges.

Dwayne clerked for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit for the Honorable Edward Carnes. Dwayne was also a reporter for The Palm Beach Post, covering local government, politics, and the Florida legislature. He has also served as Editor in Chief of both the Florida Law Review and The Independent Florida Alligator, the nation's largest independent, student-run newspaper.

In his practice, Dwayne has written multiple appellate briefs to the United States Courts of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida (on appeal from bankruptcy court judgments), and Florida's Third District Court of Appeal.
