When corporations pollute and harm the environment, Weitz & Luxenberg is there to halt the pollution and to champion the rights of victimized children, parents and homeowners. I consider it a great privilege to be part of this outstanding and distinguished law firm, fighting daily on behalf of the innocent, those who through no fault of their own find themselves harmed by corporate malefactors.

 

Pearl A. Robertson is skilled at defeating complex and numerous arguments raised by corporate polluters and companies that commit fraud against the public. That is one of the reasons why Super Lawyers magazine recognizes her as a “Rising Star” attorney. Ms. Robertson has earned that coveted designation multiple times.

An associate attorney for our Environmental Pollution and Consumer Protection litigations, Ms. Robertson is actively involved in the class action and multidistrict litigations we bring against companies engaged in practices and activities that harm health, homes and pocketbooks.

Ms. Robertson joined us after serving as an associate with the New Orleans law firm Irpino, Avin & Hawkins. There, she worked on a number of major product liability cases involving defective construction materials, medications and medical devices. She also worked on the BP oil spill case, which has been one of our own very important litigations.

Ms. Robertson is licensed to practice law in Louisiana. She is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court in the Eastern District of Louisiana, the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals and the U.S. Supreme Court.

Her professional affiliations include memberships in the American Bar Association, Inn of Court (St. Thomas More Chapter), Louisiana State Bar Association (Young Lawyers Division), Louisiana State Bar Association (Access to Justice Committee), Louisiana Association for Justice and the Federal Bar Association.

Her legal career began in 2011, the same year she completed Loyola University New Orleans College of Law. She earned a juris doctor degree from that school and served on its law review.

Earlier, she graduated with a master of arts degree, summa cum laude, from New Mexico State University in Las Cruces (a portion of that academic program included studying in China). She graduated magna cum laude from Montana State University in Billings, where she earned a bachelor of arts degree.

Ms. Robertson is passionate about basketball (she briefly played in a German league) and is an ardent defender of the humane treatment of animals.
