Kenneth J. Robinson, Slowik & Robinson
Why did you decide to become an attorney?
Growing up, I was taught that there is nothing more rewarding than being in the service of others. Also, I wanted to use advocacy, rhetoric, and the spoken and written word to resolve disputes (which essentially means, as a child, I was picked on and needed to find a non-physical way to stand up for myself... so I relied on a sharp tongue...). When I was young, I thought the practice of law was noble (and still do). I should also mention that I was encouraged to be a lawyer to compete with my twin brother (the doctor) and I knew that if I became a lawyer with my clients' interest always in mind and I practiced with integrity, I would make a decent living.
What made you choose your primary area of law?
I have always been intrigued by travel and languages. I enjoy international politics, business, and dealing directly with individuals. Immigration law is a perfect synergy of these elements."
What makes your law firm unique?

Describe your ideal client.
Describe your personal interests and hobbies.
I have two beautiful sons (don't take my word for it, ask my wife...), two ornery cats, one beautiful and ornery wife. They take up most of my free time; however, I enjoy travel, I am a TV (American Idol, C-Span/CNN and 24) and a movie-junkie (anything that has subtitles or a talking bear), and weekend warrior athletics.
