ROBIN V. GONZALES

Growing up in the Southern Philippines, I was exposed to recurring conflict and lawlessness and became comfortable with navigating these high-stress situations. This experience led me to be fascinated with what causes conflicts and how to resolve them. Clients will discover working with me an immense passion for solving complex problems and helping them find the best course of legal action, whether litigation, arbitration, or mediation.
