Robin Zaragoza is a Washington native who embodies the concept of “no limitation.” Mrs. Zaragoza’s strength and resilience comes from being uprooted from her home and separated from her siblings at a young age.
Mrs. Zaragoza quickly found her love for sports and used that outlet for her college bound dreams. Uncertain of her ability to afford college, she enrolled in the United States Naval Reserves. Shortly after signing up, however, she was offered a full college scholarship. Mrs. Zaragoza graduated cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice with a specialization in Theory of Criminology. Throughout the 10 years of Mrs. Zaragoza’s military service, she was deployed to Afghanistan between her junior and senior year, where she participated in a Joint Services Campaign at the Detention Facility in Parwan. While in law school, Mrs. Zaragoza was activated in between her 2L and 3L year to perform Active Shooter training seminars following the attacks on unarmed navy recruitment centers. Her success is derived from cultivating survival instincts to surpass the barriers she faced as a young child and an innate drive to overcome all odds. Despite being separated at a young age, she lives within a 5-mile radius among her 5 siblings.
As a transactional attorney, Mrs. Zaragoza is laser focused on small and often overlooked details when drafting, analyzing and negotiating contracts and lease agreements. While sorting and assessing complex data, she proactively identifies risks and develops solutions most favorable to her clients. Mrs. Zaragoza represents small and mid-sized businesses and individuals in transactional real estate matters, transactional business matters, construction law and contracts.
