Local attorney is a 'Bachelorette' contestant

Craig Robinson didn’t go on “The Bachelorette” to fall in love though he says he was open to the possibility. The Langhorne native just got back from Los Angeles where the ABC series was taped. Robinson, a personal injury lawyer with Weinstein, Schleifer and Kupersmith, says he just wanted “the experience of it. To have a good time,” about going on the show. He says a friend of his applied for him online and he was very surprised to hear from casting agents.

“The hardest part was being out of contact, no cell phones, nothing, said Robinson who was allowed to call his parents on April 5, his 27th birthday. Robinson, a 2001 Neshaminy High graduate later went to Penn State and then Villanova for law school. “I’m excited to get back to work. I’m pretty happy with my regular life,” Robinson said, though he certainly had a great time on the show and made some friends he will keep in touch with. “The Bachelorette” this season, starting May 24, is Ali Fedotowsky, a finalist on last season’s “Bachelor.”

"She was a really cool girl," said Robinson, who couldn’t reveal how far he got on the show for fear of being sued by producers. Understandable.
