To Leifert & Leifert, and to our South Florida firm’s clients, Robyn brings both unmatched legal experience and an incomparable perspective gained from years of handling legal matters both as a prosecutor and later as a criminal defense and family attorney. Additionally, Robyn brings with her the stellar reputation that years of successful legal work have earned her.

Realizing that her clients, although they have found themselves in bad situations, are not bad people, Robyn dedicates her career to ensuring that individuals’ futures are not jeopardized because of past mistakes and/or misunderstandings. She works diligently to protect her clients’ assets from being depleted in Dissolution of Marriage cases, and to make the difficult process of a divorce easier for her clients to navigate.
