about Robin Young title


ROBINYOUNG & COMPANY, INC., founded by Robin Lynne Young, CSSC in 1996, is an independent brokerage firm specializing in structured settlements and funding agreements. The firm is dedicated to the plaintiff and plaintiff's family, personal injury attorney and their legal team, offering injury victims a unique brand of personal attention and financial assistance at a critical juncture on their road to recovery. Young is among the first 100 industry professionals in the nation to earn the prestigious Certified Structured Settlement Consultant (CSSC) designation from the National Structured Settlement Trade Association through the University of Notre Dame.

"Too often I see personal injury victims who have been completely focused on simply seeing their injury acknowledged and blame legally affixed. The truth is, that’s just the beginning of what it will take to rebuild their lives. Their future, their best chance for long-term physical and emotional healing, often lies in having someone on their side who can swiftly and accurately structure a financial settlement which will safeguard them for years to come."

A Personal Approach
With over seventeen years of experience as a structured settlement professional and eight years as a legal assistant for personal injury, Young and her team are passionate advocates for injury victims' rights. Young emphasizes hands-on attention and believes in getting to know her clients and their unique situations.

Structured settlements can prove unwieldy for the inexperienced and unseasoned consultant. Each client represents a complex set of personal, legal, and financial variables, and neglecting any piece of the puzzle can lead to disastrous results. Young's clients are assured knowing that with her strategic thinking and extensive experience, she will make the right decisions and recommendations for their case.

With her team-player attitude and personal approach, Young coordinates and assists plaintiff attorneys, mediators, trust attorneys, government attorneys, attorney ad litems, guardian ad litems and judges with her deep understanding and expertise of the process of resolving legal financial claims through a financial or insurance arrangement, including periodic payments. For this, Young relies on a solid track record of working with minors, families, individuals, young and elderly, as well as challenged children and adults (with special and supplemental needs) who may require complex planning and personal attention and focus.

ROBINYOUNG
& COMPANY offers broad-based structured settlement consulting and brokerage services throughout the United States. Meanwhile, Young's structured settlement career extends into the international arena as well, where Young has traveled to and managed successful completion of complex cases with annuitants in Mexico, Shanghai, Beijing and Hong Kong.

Influences
Prior to establishing her structured settlement career in 1996, Young cites eight years as a legal assistant on Joe Jamail's personal injury team as having a profound influence on her style. While working with Jamail, one of the country's most prominent plaintiff attorneys, along with Janet Hansen and Frank Staggs, Young learned the intricacies of settling cases. It is also with this team that she learned the value in earning the trust and confidence of plaintiffs. Observing firsthand how fair settlements were negotiated and settled, often without the necessity of a trial, Young developed the skills that her clients trust today. Young continues to serve as a valued member of Jamail's settlement team as the exclusive structured settlement consultant.

One of Young's greatest motivations is her dedication to family Ė both her own and others'. Young is the Texas-bred daughter and granddaughter of a military family where principles of honor and public service have been a big influence in her life. Young is married Major Joseph R. Ellis, United States Marine Corps (Ret), currently serving as Commissioner Ellis, Harris County Housing Authority.


A Culture of Giving
The culture of giving and safeguarding runs through the hearts of Young and her husband. On a local and national level, they work hard to establish a firm foundation in the business, social, and philanthropic areas. Always passionate about the causes that are important, Young donates a percentage of her annual earnings to a number of health, disability, military and educational organizations.

"Helping people get back on their feet has come to define my own life. The work is always fascinating, always challenging, and always demanding the absolute best from me and my team. At the end of the day, the best part is feeling like we've made a difference in someone's life "
