More than 100 online 5-star Client Reviews

Scott Robertson has practiced law on the lower Eastern Shore of Maryland since graduating magna cum laude from the University of Baltimore School of Law in 1993. His primary—and now exclusive—area of practice has been the handling of automobile accident injury claims and cases. In addition to the vast number of cases he has handled that have settled without a lawsuit, he has been a lead attorney in approximately 150 personal injury trials, the majority of which were tried before a jury.

During the first half of Mr. Robertson’s legal career, he represented major insurance carriers and their insured in the trial defense of injury cases. He also previously represented insurance companies in lawsuits against uninsured motorists who negligently caused accidents in order to recover the funds paid by the insurance companies (insurance subrogation).

Mr. Robertson’s practice is now exclusively focused on the professional handling of insurance claims and cases on behalf of those injured through the fault of other drivers. Mr. Robertson and his well-trained staff are focused on achieving the best possible end result for his clients while relieving the clients of the hassle and stress of dealing with multiple insurance adjusters and the often cumbersome coordination of benefits issues. Great communication with clients is a hallmark of Mr. Robertson’s practice.

Mr. Robertson has received several legal awards and honors. He was the statewide recipient of the Edward F. Shea Professionalism Award from the Maryland Bar Foundation in 2004. In 2003 he received the Maryland Leadership in Law Award from The Daily Record, a Baltimore-Washington law and business publication. He received the Partnership Award from the Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service for the 2002-03 year.

Mr. Robertson is a past member of the Board of Governors and Executive Committee of the Maryland State Bar Association. He is a past President of the Wicomico County Bar Association and has served as the county coordinator for the Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service. He is a member of the Maryland Association for Justice (formerly the Maryland Trial Lawyers Association) and is a fellow of the Maryland Bar Foundation.

Mr. Robertson is actively involved in community affairs on the lower Eastern Shore. He is the 2009-2010 President of the Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce. He has been appointed by the Wicomico County Council to serve in several important leadership positions. He was the Chairman of the Wicomico County Charter Review Committee that drafted the new Charter to implement the County Executive form of government. He previously served as Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Wicomico County Free Library. In the early 1990s he served as the Public Safety Subcommittee Chairman of the Wicomico County Consolidated Functions Committee.

Mr. Robertson is an active member and past Chairman of the Administrative Board of Trinity United Methodist Church. He served as President of the Salisbury Jaycees in 1996-97. In 1997 he received the Kulp Memorial Award from the United States Jaycees, recognizing him as one of the best chapter presidents in the nation.

Mr. Robertson and his associates helped me navigate through this experience. I had a devastating accident in December 2017. The accident not only caused me physical damage but also financial damage. Robertson & Robertson helped me recoup my losses so that I could regain the quality of life I had before the accident. They kept me informed every step of the way and whenever I called them, I received a prompt response. I highly recommend the law firm of Robertson & Robertson!

Robin N.

I personally recommend Scott Robertson's office to anyone in need of an attorney. I work with him on a professional level from a medical facility and have seen firsthand how his office is run. His level of professionalism sets the precedence for many. The highest compliment you can give is the gift of a referral, and I have referred family members and friends in need of an attorney to this office. At his office you will not be "just a number, " but his office will actually know who you are by name. You do not give them your "case number" as so many attorneys require, but they actually know YOU. The office staff is also friendly, knowledgeable, courteous...just wonderful. This office absolutely is an asset to our community!

Not always the way you want to meet great people, but that's exactly what happened. The team here went above and beyond my expectations. From handling the case as professionally and personally as possible to remaining in contact the entire process, I had peace of mind that everything was handled. I will be sure to refer your business to anyone I hear in need.

Angela R.

From the moment we walked into their office to the regretful (that our wonderful meetings together were over) last goodbye we experienced nothing but sincere and continued compassion and caring. Mr. Robertson made us feel that he had all the bases covered, and he did! He was always available to answer any concerns or questions and, in the end, far exceeded our greatest expectations. He turned an unfortunate event around. We would recommend he and his office family to anyone that is looking for the best attorney on the shore!

I am tremendously thankful for the sheer level of expertise and professionalism that I've witnessed from Robertson & Robertson. Scott and his associates put my wife and me at ease from the very beginning, and they were always very generous in sharing their insight and experience.

Sherry B.

After being in a car accident, things just got too overwhelming for me to keep dealing with on my own. The constant phone calls, questions, and having to keep repeating myself over and over again with adjusters and insurance companies got to be way too much! A friend recommended Robertson & Robertson and it was the best thing I ever did! One meeting with Scott and Vera and everything was smooth sailing. They handled everything!! So welcoming. So easy to talk to. So comforting. I have never been through anything like this before, and they made this entire process so easy. Scott kept in constant touch every step of the way to keep me updated and fully aware of what was going on. I highly recommend Scott and his staff. I pray I will never need a lawyer again for myself or my family due to a car accident, however if I do, I feel comfort in knowing I have one that I can count on.

I went to Robertson & Robertson after being in a head on collision. My sister and I had multiple serious injuries. The medical bills were piling up and the insurance companies were very confusing. Scott, Vera & David did an amazing job! They were very compassionate and professional. We were kept informed of everything along the way. We received a much larger settlement than we expected. I highly recommend the friendly experts at Robertson & Robertson.
