Practice Areas

Robin Cole Lane has defended thousands of people accused of violating Texas traffic laws. As a former traffic prosecutor, she understands the municipal and Justice of the Peace court systems. Her years of defense experience bring a knowledge base few attorneys can offer in the area of traffic ticket defense.
A large portion of Robin Lane’s law practice is devoted to family law matters. She has assisted clients in obtaining a divorce, child custody issues, and post-divorce modifications. With over 20 years of legal experience, she brings a wealth of knowledge to the table.
The majority of Robin Lane’s criminal defense practice is devoted to Class C Misdemeanors. While most Class C charges are traffic related, the area actually encompasses a wide array of additional charges.
