Lou Robbio was born to an Italian father and a Polish mother in Providence, RI. After graduating from high school he spent some time in the Navy before going to Suffolk Law School in Boston. At first he planned on applying to the FBI but, in his first year of law school, decided to become a defense attorney. He worked for many years in Providence’s Federal court as a criminal defense attorney, and he argued some very high-profile cases.
His transition to Florida began rather dramatically when he had a heart attack several years ago on the courtroom floor in Providence. To him, it was a sign to retire. He moved to Florida where he remained active in criminal defense cases as a consultant.
Immigration Law: Removal Proceedings
Recently, Mr. Robbio has become more involved in immigration cases. He’s passionate about helping the under-served, especially those who arrived in the United States without inspection while they were still children. When people in this situation are served with a Notice to Appear for removal proceedings, Mr. Robbio will take on their case. The case resembles a normal court case; part of the reason Mr. Robbio enjoys the work. It starts with a Masters Calendar where Mr. Robbio enters the accused’s plea and relief claim and continues with a series of hearings, much like in a trial. Mr. Robbio’s criminal defense experience lends itself to removal proceedings cases.
Every defendant in a removal proceedings case is entitled to an interpreter and Mr. Robbio often has an interpreter with him when meeting with clients in order to ensure full comprehension on both sides. He serves clients from Miami to Orlando and can be reached via telephone: (941) 429-2194.
Mr. Robbio believes that every person in this country, regardless of how they arrived here, is entitled to the rights we have enshrined in our Constitution. He is devoted to defending those rights. He would be a good person to have on your side.
