Robin N. Loeb
Robin N. Loeb is known for her excellence in representing victims of catastrophic injury. She handles cases involving product liability, medical negligence, tractor/trailer collisions, severe automobile collisions, violations of civil rights, and business disputes.
Robin was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She attended Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana, where she obtained her Bachelor of Arts Degree in 1976. She attended Emory University School of Law in Atlanta, Georgia, where she obtained her law degree in 1979. While at Emory, she was inducted into the Order of the Barristers, for her excellence in the art of courtroom advocacy. She was admitted to the State Bar of Georgia in 1979.
Since 1979, Robin has been practicing with Garland, Samuel & Loeb, where she is a named partner. During the course of her practice, she has represented numerous victims of negligence and abuse, whether it be by tractor/trailer companies, physicians, automobile manufacturers, governmental organizations or individuals who have disregarded the rights of others. Robin's goal is to represent each client with fervor in order to seek justice and fair compensation.
For instance, in Mickler v. Southeastern Freight Lines. Robin represented the plaintiff in a wrongful death case arising from a tractor trailer collision, resulting in a $5.2 million jury verdict. Because many civil cases are resolved with confidential settlements, most of the monetary awards in Robin's cases cannot be published. Those cases have involved vehicle collisions, medical malpractice, products liability, civil rights, and inadequate security. For instance, Robin represented the young girl injured by shrapnel in the Olympic Park bombing for her injuries and for claims arising from the death of her mother in that bombing, which was resolved and culminated in her client's testimony at the sentencing of Eric Robert Rudolph. Recently, Robin's cases have included experimental surgery resulting in catastrophic injury, the provision of a home treatment medical device leading to death, improperly functioning medicine delivery pumps, mismanagement of a medical monitoring device causing infection leading to death, and an overdose of narcotics causing cardiac arrest.
Robin's practice over the years has been extremely varied, handling many matters outside the realm of personal injury. As an example, in Peller v. The Southern Company. Robin was part of a team representing the plaintiff, a shareholder of the Southern Company, in an action alleging mismanagement in the construction of two nuclear power plants. That case was resolved in a multi-million dollar settlement. Robin also represented the plaintiff in a case seeking injunctive relief arising from the controversy surrounding the airing on public television of a movie entitled "Death of a Princess" about the public execution of a Saudi Arabian princess for adultery. Robin defended Hustler Magazine in a defamation case filed against it by a local legislator, relying on the magazine's first amendment free speech rights. Robin defended Michael Thevis, the man known as the Atlanta "porn king" in a civil racketeering case brought by the estate of one of his alleged murder victims. Robin also defended the manufacturer of race car helmets in a federal case brought for copyright infringement. She also defended a company in a civil case asserting violation of the False Claims Act arising from what was alleged to be a Medicare fraud.
Robin is the author of a chapter entitled "Establishing Foundations for Real Evidence" in the LexisNexis Practice Guide Georgia Evidence. In that book, the Georgia Evidence Rules are listed and explained in a way that is accessible to the court room practitioner, with each chapter containing a check list of important points and detailed examples and citations to Georgia authority, together with strategic and practical tips for the litigator. Robin was recently named one of Georgia's "Top Rated Lawyers" in a magazine supplement to the Atlanta Journal Constitution and the Wall Street Journal. Robin has been AV rated for over 20 years by Martindale-Hubble, demonstrating the highest possible peer review rating in legal ability and ethical standards.
Robin is a member of the American Association for Justice, the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association and the Lawyers Club of Atlanta. She is admitted to practice in all state and federal courts in the State of Georgia, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, the United States Tax Court and the Unites States Supreme Court.
