FACES of Orange County 2017

No. 1 Consumer Protection


Mark P. Robinson, Jr. has dedicated his legal career to protecting the rights of consumers—making people’s lives safer—whether they are working, driving or taking medication. As the founding and senior partner of the Newport Beach law firm, Robinson Calcagnie, Inc., Robinson has devoted his life to obtaining justice for thousands of people injured by defective products, dangerous drugs and negligence. “It has always been important to me to help people fighting an uphill battle,” said Robinson. “Consumer rights are a vital part of our nation, our legal system, and even our economy. Helping real people get the justice they deserve is what really matters to me.” Robinson’s work spans four decades, having obtained a $128 million judgment in the 1978 Ford Pinto case, Grimshaw v. Ford Motor Company. The landmark verdict is recognized by the Association of Trial Lawyers of America as one of the ten most significant civil trials of the past millennium.

He was recently awarded a $46 million jury verdict on behalf of a man who lost his left leg and suffered multiple internal injuries after being hit by a Nissan parts delivery vehicle. Earlier this year he secured a $15.9 million settlement with the city of Anaheim in a lawsuit that involved a child who suffered life-altering injuries after she was struck by a car while walking to her elementary school. Peer groups and legal publications have recognized Robinson with various accolades, to name a few: the California Bar Association Litigation Section Trial Lawyer Hall of Fame; the American Association of Justice Lifetime Achievement Award; the Public Justice Champion of Justice Award; the California Lawyer magazine California Attorney of the Year (CLAY) Award; the Orange County Trial Lawyer Association Personal Injury Trial Lawyer of the Year. He has consistently been selected by the Los Angeles Daily Journal as one of the Top 100 Lawyers in California.

The firm is proud to announce that Mark P. Robinson, Jr. has just been renamed as one of the Top 30 Plaintiff Lawyers in California for 2017 by the Los Angeles Daily Journal. This the third year this prestigious legal publication has made these selections and Robinson has been chosen every year.
