Solly Robins & Julie Davis

Keeping History Alive

Robins, Kaplan, Miller & Ciresi L.L.P. originated in 1938, during the depths of the Depression. Partners Solly Robins and Julius (“Julie”) Davis started the firm when the then prevalent antisemitism prevented them from finding a place at the table among the other law firms in Minneapolis and St. Paul.

Solly and Julie believed in these core values for their new firm:  represent all types of people, particularly working people; represent all types of businesses and organizations; create a level playing field. Above all else, commit to achieving justice.

Robins was the trial lawyer; Davis the negotiator.
