Robb & Robb LLC was founded in 1984 by Kansas City personal injury attorneys Gary C. Robb and Anita Porte Robb. Over the last 30 plus years, the Kansas City, Missouri law firm has handled many precedent-setting, important, high-profile, and complex cases in the fields of aviation law, hazardous product liability, personal injury, medical malpractice, wrongful death, premises liability, and trucking and transportation liability, including catastrophic automobile and school bus accidents.

The superior level of representation provided by the Missouri personal injury law firm includes the depth of knowledge and experience provided by attorneys Anita and Gary Robb, coupled with their ability to use the most effective and technologically complex tools available to present evidence.

Many cases handled successfully by the firm’s attorneys have received both local Missouri and national media attention, including featured spots on the CBS Evening News, Good Morning America, NBC’s Today Show, CBS This Morning, Larry King Live, CNN.com, AOL Online, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, The National Law Journal, Lawyers Weekly USA, BNA Reporter, The Missouri Lawyers Weekly, and The Kansas City Star, as well as numerous other daily newspapers across the country and locally and regionally televised news programs.

Personal injury attorney Gary C. Robb has been selected by his peers as one of “”The Best Lawyers In America”,” which has come to be regarded by both the legal profession and the public as the definitive guide to legal excellence in the United States. Attorney Anita Porte Robb has been recognized by The National Law Journal as one of the top ten women trial lawyers in the country.

Mr. Robb has received numerous honors and awards and handled many high profile cases. Mr. Robb served as lead counsel for Vanessa Bryant, widow of NBA legend Kobe Bryant, in her helicopter crash lawsuit for the wrongful death of her husband and daughter Gianna. Mr. Robb also represented Senator Jean Carnahan in the lawsuit arising out of the airplane crash that killed her husband, Missouri Governor Mel Carnahan.
