Our Attorneys

Steven M. Robey

Steve grew up in Oakland, California. He accepted a football scholarship to the University of Miami and was a starting lineman for the Miami Hurricanes (See Sports Page).  He graduated law school third in his class at Stetson University, Cum Laude. Following graduation, Steve began his career in injury cases representing many of the largest and best-known insurance companies in the nation. In so doing, he saw how they often fought valid claims, resisted paying just and proper compensation to innocent accident victims, and often tried to blame or demonize the injured party. In short, he learned what techniques and tricks they used to avoid paying claims, and left the insurance defense bar as soon as he could and opened his own office representing real people with real injuries and real problems, using the knowledge he had gained as an insurance defense lawyer to his advantage and to the advantage of his clients. Steve has been putting that knowledge and experience to good use representing regular people since 1982.

Beau G. Robey

Raised in Bellingham, Washington, Beau is proud to be a member of the Whatcom community. His father, Steve Robey, instilled in him a desire to achieve justice by acting with integrity. Beau had success as a student athlete at Sehome High School, where he participated in advanced placement studies and as a varsity athlete in multiple sports including football and wrestling. The University of Oregon invited Beau to play football where he became a member of the Ducks Offensive Line. Beau was a member of the 2001 Oregon Ducks Pac-10 Championship Team that won the Fiesta Bowl over the University of Colorado Buffalos. Beau Robey, as a member of the 2001 Oregon Ducks Football Team, was inducted into the University of Oregon Hall of Fame in September 2014 (See Sports Page).

Beau credits the discipline and toughness gained from being an NCAA student athlete as the source of his deep drive to achieve. While a law student in the Washington State Law Clerk program (APR Rule 6), Beau worked full time as a law clerk, and quickly gained real world experience in the practical operation of the law. After completing the Washington State Bar exam, Beau immediately joined the firm as a full time attorney. Now, Beau looks forward to raising his son and living and playing in the outdoors of the Great Northwest, while helping injured and disabled people as a lawyer with ROBEY NAMBA.
