Robin J. Sutton

Contact Information:

A native of Alamance County, Robin began working for the firm in 1999.  Robin serves as our intake coordinator, and also manages the day-to-day affairs of the firm. 

Robin believes completely in the services we provide to our clients, and is very good at connecting with them on a personal level.  She is very compassionate, and that compassion is evident with every person whom she interacts.  Very rarely does a day go by where we are not told about how someone appreciated the time Robin took with them, either on the phone or in person, and how much it helped put them at ease.  Many of our clients are facing stressful situations with family members facing illness, and Robin is very good at putting them at ease. 

Robin will be your main point of contact, on either the phone or in the office, and she looks forward to speaking with you and helping you start the estate planning process.
