Mark P. Robinson, Jr.’s life’s work is about making people safer, whether they’re working, driving a car or taking medication.

As founding and senior partner of the Newport Beach plaintiff ’s law firm Robinson Calcagnie, Inc., Robinson has taken on some of the biggest corporations on behalf of his clients and won. “The reward for me is helping our clients and making a difference,” he says.

This month, Mark received two national awards for his outstanding work. Mark was presented with the prestigious American Association for Justice “Lifetime Achievement Award” for advancing the rights of the wrongfully injured though legal advocacy. And the Public Justice Foundation presented him with the group’s highest honor, the “Champion of Justice Award” for his lifelong career of standing up to automotive and pharmaceutical giants who manufactured dangerous and defective products. He was also just renamed one of the Top 30 Plaintiff Lawyers in California for 2016 by the Los Angeles Daily Journal.

Since 1978, when Robinson served as plaintiff ’s co-counsel in the landmark Ford Pinto exploding gas tank case, Robinson Calcagnie, Inc. has recovered multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements for its clients. “I love to see how the work we do goes beyond the courtroom to help make products safer for everyone,” he says.
