Bill Robertson, a fifth-generation Sarasota personal injury attorney, is starting his own law firm, The Robertson Law Firm, PA, after a 34-year career at Kirk-Pinkerton, PA. Robertson was heavily involved in helping Florida businesses and cities fight back after the BP oil spill, securing more than $30 million in damages after filing 115 claims for hotels, real estate firms and other businesses along with the cities of Sarasota and Bradenton Beach. He is also representing the City of Sarasota and the City of Palmetto in lawsuits to recover damages related to the opioid epidemic against major pharmaceutical manufacturers and distributors, and is assisting veterans in a class-action lawsuit against 3M regarding faulty earplugs issued to the military. 

Robertson’s great-grandfather and grandfather opened the Robertson and Robertson Law Firm in Sarasota in 1925 and represented John Ringling and other pioneers of the community.
