Established in 2017.
We may be new as a firm, but we are not new to the practice of law. Our founding principal, Robin Haynes, has worked on some of the largest volume cases in Spokane Superior Court history. We have experience in Washington & Idaho State and Federal Courts (including family and bankruptcy courts), Division III Court of Appeals, the Idaho Supreme Court, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and numerous tribal courts and administrative agencies.
Our goal at GIANTlegal is to get you from A to B in the most direct way possible. We don't over promise, and we will tell you upfront what and where the holes are in your case. Some clients don't like that, but we think that knowing your weaknesses is the best way to overcome them.

Robin started GIANTlegal after more than a decade of employment and commercial litigation in Washington and Idaho. Her experience includes both employer and employee side litigation; complex commercial disputes including receiverships; employee handbook and non-compete drafting and revisions; startup and general business advice; and bankruptcy. She played key roles in two of the largest cases in Spokane Superior Court history, one of which was a consumer class action benefiting Spokane residents. She has successfully litigated matters in the state and federal courts of Washington & Idaho, Division III Court of Appeals, the Ninth Circuit, the Idaho Supreme Court, and various tribal courts. She loves working with startups to help clients fulfill their dreams with ease at a reasonable price, and is here to assist in personal matters that impact your daily life, including family and estate matters. In her personal time, Robin is a book nerd, who enjoys strong coffee, aerial yoga, and anything outdoors in the Northwest.
