In 1990, John Robotham qualified as a British Barrister at the Bar of England and Wales. In 2002, he qualified at the New York bar, and now practices as a Trial Attorney in Washington, D.C. and Maryland. Combined, John has over 23 years of litigation experience in the United Kingdom, West Indies and the United States. He is also admitted to the bars of Maryland, and Anguilla, West Indies. John has been variously described to others by Judges as: “having a sharp wit and intellect,” and as “a lawyer of conspicuous qualities and talent.” He has successfully litigated cases in areas such as Arbitration, Personal Injury, White Collar Crime, Homicide, Money Laundering, Contract Disputes, and Family Law.

Over the years, John’s commitment to the legal and wider community is reflected in many ways. John has volunteered as a judge for mock trial teams, guest speaker and lecturer at the Charles Hamilton Houston Law School Preparatory Institute, Georgetown University, and continues to do so with St. Mary’s County High Schools in Maryland.
