Fahey Case

‘In the Fahey case, similar to the movie Kramer vs. Kramer, my client was disabled and was the primary parent as the mother had abandoned the kid. It’s cited until this day.” -Jeffrey A. Robinson


Larry Thompson Case

“In the Larry Thompson case, the client and his wife had reached an agreement to share custody of their 7-year-old daughter. Just before we could get the papers entered, she accused my client of molesting his daughter and he didn’t see her for six months.  We really pursued it and proved woman was lying. The upshot was that my client got full custody and the mother got supervised visits.”–Jeffrey A. Robinson

Helping a dad get full custody after years of trying

“One client came to me as a totally beat down dad, trying to get custody for years. I told him I would try and use everything I have got. I called the clients’ witnesses and got the full story, something his previous attorney didn’t do. This 6-year-old child was left alone, his dad hasn’t heard from him, and the mom was passed out on the couch all the time. Since for the first time I did the investigation necessary, he won full custody and the mother only had supervised visitation.”—Shannon Hadeed

From torn down to built up — tired of the OCD and constant put downs

“A retired teacher client was married to a retired dentist for 40 years and was much younger than him. He owned a dental clinic and on the side, invented things. He had a form of obsessive-compulsive disorder and required her to wear gloves and always use bleach to rid the house of his perceived idea that there was mold. He was always bad with money and went to Las Vegas and spent $8,000 and she was ready to leave him. He told her how stupid she was and that she could never make it by herself. (I hear this from my clients all the time). She was scared to leave him, and mentioned how worried she was that he hadn’t saved for retirement.

She refused to sign a refinancing agreement on their house and instead came to me. Her husband was hiding money, which I learned through subpoenaing 12 banks. We used that hidden information as a bomb in mediation to get what we wanted. In the end, she got to keep the house and didn’t have to pay him anything for it, she got half the business, and she got spousal support for life. And maybe even more importantly, I helped her go from feeling beaten down to being totally transformed: She lost 50 pounds, started exercising and seeing a therapist, and was able to move on with her life.”—Shannon Hadeed

Jeffrey A. Robinson won a landmark case regarding spousal support

Jeffrey A. Robinson won a landmark case regarding spousal support,
In re Marriage of McCausland. Read the full text of the case here: https://caselaw.findlaw.com/wa-supreme-court/1046197.html

Husband was wrongly accused of sexually assaulting his 8-year-old daughter – Shannon Hadeed got the charges dismissed.

I did a divorce where suddenly, my client was accused of having inappropriately touched his daughter. My client said he didn’t and I believed him 100 percent.

The poor little girl had to have a freeze against her dad visiting her. He had criminal charges brought against him, and I defended him in both the criminal case and the Child Protective Services case.

I interviewed the child in the preliminary hearing. The girl did three different interviews on tape, and I watched those videos many times and wrote down all the many inconsistencies, which got more grandiose. I researched psychological questions about children being coached to lie.

In court, I asked the child: ‘Rosy, you talked to the Guardian ad Litem. What did they do when you forgot your story?’ She said, ‘My mommy would remind me and tell me what to say.’ I asked, ‘Did it get confusing?’ She said, ‘Yes, a little bit.’ I asked, ‘You said in one video that Daddy was snoring when he touched you.’

The girl admitted the father was sleeping, and when I asked her who told her her Daddy was awake, she said, ‘I don’t remember.’

Both cases were dismissed, and my client said I saved his life.
