You are innocent until proven guilty!


We joke that every student entering law school believes she will become a criminal defense attorney. Obviously, the vast majority go another way. It takes a strong sense of justice to forge a career in criminal law. We believe you are innocent until proven guilty. We believe you deserve a quality defense. We believe that one bad day, choice, or misstep should not shape the rest of your life.




With over a decade of service to clients throughout San Diego County, Ertz Law provides a dedicated staff who use a thorough and individualized approach to fight for you!




She’s a badass with a good heart, soft but strong. Unapologetic and honest. She’s the type of woman you go to war beside – not against.” – R.H. Sin

Tanya Robinson, Esq. has been an advocate for her clients her entire career. After working for two of the top family law firms in San Diego, she became a partner at The ERTZ LAW GROUP. Prior to a career practicing law, Tanya was an executive-level manager for some of the most prestigious hotels in San Diego. The service industry taught her to manage chaos and put her clients first. Tanya has chosen family law as her focus because sometimes she likes to fight, and sometimes she likes to defuse a fight, but she always likes the challenge of protecting her clients as they navigate the, often emotional and complicated, world of family law.


Military Involvement:


Tanya is a proud military spouse and a former military “brat.” With a husband and father who are both retired from the U.S. Navy, she has a soft spot for those who have served and their dependants who often put their lives on hold to support their military family member. Whether it's the special pay structure, retirement issues (pension/TSP), or PCS, military service usually comes with its own set of challenges when it comes to family law. Tanya digs deep to protect this honored community.
