Michael P. Robertson
Michael Robertson has a strong academic bent but finds litigation to be a lot more fun. Michael’s background includes a law degree from the University of Texas, a master’s degree (English Literature, University of Chicago) and an undergraduate degree from Oberlin College (English, magna cum laude). While at UT, Michael was submissions editor for the Texas Journal on Civil Liberties and Civil Rights and a member of the Texas International Law Journal. Michael’s time in Austin, Texas also included work in the appellate division of the Travis County District Attorney’s office, preparing briefs for the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals. Thereafter, Michael served as law clerk to Chief Justice William Ray Price, Jr. of the Supreme Court of Missouri, followed by five years as an associate with an insurance defense law firm in Columbia, Missouri. Michael’s ability to express complex concepts in very simple terms –both in writing and in argument– have made him a key part the team.
