Helping people go on in loss — with a sense of dignity and knowing that their story was heard.
This is how Robin Treto summarizes his heart for the practice of law. From a young age, he felt a profound connection to people who suffer loss. Many variables and paths converged to lead him to the practice of injury law, but the common thread was a passion to help people discover a sense of meaning even in the most unexpected and difficult circumstances. Through the practice of injury law, Robin’s mission is to help those who have been injured obtain the resources they need to go on—to heal, to make the best of their circumstances, and to re-discover what’s possible for their lives.
Robin was born and raised in Orlando, Florida. He is the son of Cuban immigrants, whose example of optimism, hard work, and staying the course through struggle molded him. He attended the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida, graduating with a degree in Economics. He then attended Emory University School of Law in Atlanta, Georgia on a scholarship. It was during his time at Emory University that Robin first discovered the power of civil trials. Robin intended to practice business law. But his experience during two mock trial courses and an internship at a trial law firm would change the trajectory of his legal career. Robin saw, for the first time, how the unique story-telling aspects of trial law can help people in a deep and lasting way.
Robin has focused his practice mainly on helping patients who have been harmed in the medical context. He believes that medical malpractice law can increase the quality of care for both patients and medical providers. Where possible, a spirit of collaboration on medical malpractice issues will serve Florida’s healthcare delivery systems better than purely adversarial approaches have traditionally allowed.
