Attorney Profile

Attorney Kristen L. Robinson is a senior partner of Mellin Robinson, P.C., in Troy, Michigan. Serving clients throughout the greater Detroit metro region and surrounding areas, Ms. Robinson focuses her practice primarily on family law and domestic relations, with a particular focus on high-asset divorces.

Over the course of her more than 20 years in practice, Ms. Robinson has achieved notable success advocating on behalf of her clients to help them secure the favorable outcomes they seek for their legal issues involving child custody and support, complex property division, spousal support, parenting time, and other related matters. She also provides exceptional support for those seeking to modify or enforce an existing court order, and she has extensive experience assisting business owners and licensed professionals with protecting their interests in their companies and practices.

In all cases, Ms. Robinson delivers highly personalized counsel and dedicated support to all she serves. As a trained neutral mediator, she strives to help her clients resolve their conflicts and come to terms on their issues in the most efficient, cost-effective and amicable fashion possible. However, should her clients need to take their matters to court, Ms. Robinson has considerable litigation experience, and she will fight hard to ensure the best possible odds so that her clients achieve the positive results they expect no matter how complicated their situations are.

A 1993 graduate of Hope College, Ms. Robinson obtained her Juris Doctor cum laude from Detroit College of Law (now Michigan State University College of Law) in 1999. The State Bar of Michigan admitted her to practice that same year, and she is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan.

Regarded as one of the top family law attorneys in her region and a Leading Lawyer in Michigan in 2018-2019, Ms. Robinson holds an AV Preeminent peer review rating* from Martindale-Hubbell, and she has earned numerous other accolades from her peers, as well as many positive reviews and referrals from her satisfied clients. She is also a fellow with the Oakland County Bar Foundation and the Michigan State Bar Foundation.

In recognition for her selfless service to those less fortunate in her community, she received the Charitable Service Award on behalf of her law firm for her contributions to the Oakland County Bar Association's Family Law Assistance Project. Additionally, she received a Certificate of Appreciation from the Women's Survival Center for her advocacy and support of domestic violence victims.

Widely regarded as a leader in her field, Ms. Robinson has several publications to her credit, and she conducts lectures and seminars across her region on a variety of family law topics. She is also an elected member of the State Bar of Michigan's Family Law Council and past president of the Rochester Bar Association.
