With two grandparents as lawyers, and a mother who was an administrative law judge, it was perhaps inevitable Robin Wagner would become a third-generation lawyer---but not until after a career as an associate dean, dean and vice president at several universities. "I had been avoiding my destiny for decades already---it was about time to give in," says Wagner, now an attorney with Pitt McGehee Palmer & Rivers PC in Royal Oak. "I discovered that as I climbed the ladder in higher education, I enjoyed my job less and less," she adds. "And I was becoming more and more thrilled by the pace of advancement of LGBTQ rights in our society---mostly through the courts. I was supporting that work by attending fund-raisers, but I was starting to wish I could be more directly involved." The Baltimore native graduated summa cum laude from DePaul University College of Law in 2014 with a certificate in public interest law. Serving on the DePaul Law Review staff, she authored "Are Gay Rights Clearly Established? The Problem with the Qualified Immunity Doctrine," that was published in the law review.
