I hired Mr. Rehkemper in March of 2013 to defend me in a Criminal Defense case. The charge I faced came with a mandatory five-year prison sentence. Since I had never been in trouble prior to the incident, I found that I often had questions regarding my case and the legal process. Bobby was always prompt to respond to phone calls, texts, and e-mails. I could not begin to explain the intelligence and professionalism that he displayed as my case progressed. He fought for me every step of the way in a respectable and confident manner. While Bobby did his best to negotiate with the prosecutor, the prosecutor felt that he had a ‘slam dunk case’ and wanted me to plead guilty. My case seemed impossible to win, but Bobby wanted the decision to be mine. I could plead guilty or go to trial. The decision to go to trial was one of the most difficult decisions I have ever had to make, but I decided that I had to take a chance. Bobby extensively researched and discovered every issue surrounding the case against me and exploited it effortlessly in court for the jury to see. He fought a nearly impossible case and never gave up on me.
If I were to go to prison it would be difficult for me achieve my dream of becoming a nurse, which I am one semester away from completing. Words could not explain how grateful I am for all of Bobby’s hard work and dedication. Due to Bobby’s persistence and devotion I do not have to go to prison, and can finally go on with my life. He is a superb attorney. I would highly recommend him without question or hesitation. Bobby Rehkemper gave me my life back.

I hired Bobby in March of 2013 for his assistance in criminal defense. Words I would use to describe him include but are not limited to: professional, prompt, detail oriented, hard worker, and over all a Go-Getter.
I would highly recommend Bobby to anyone in a sticky situation, I could tell from our first meeting that Bobby was going to be great. I have worked with a few lawyers in the past but none have reached the quality of service Bobby offered. For instance, in my prior cases I have had lawyers write four or five pages of defense however Bobby took the time to write an entire EIGHTEEN pages. This is just one of many examples of how diligently and passionately Bobby works with each and every one of his clients.
Bobby also showed me he is willing to go above and beyond his call of duty by doing more for me than we had initially agreed. I simply wanted to win my case which most likely could have been done with one strong point in my defense. Bobby took it into his own hands to make sure all search and seizure methods were executed correctly, upon a closer look he realized the officer working my case had made a mistake and could have won my case with that evidence alone. Bobby still went on to make several more valid points in my defense simply for good measure.
Bobby was worth every penny. If I were found guilty I would have been facing years in prison. If I think about it in terms of time=money I would owe Bobby a lot more than what I initially paid him. If you are in serious need of legal assistance, don't think twice about hiring Bobby Rehkemper.

Bob was beyond outstanding. From Day 1, Bob was up front, honest, insightful, and very personable. Luckily, I haven't had to deal with many lawyers in the past however those that I have should take a lesson and a note. I was always kept in the loop every step of the way and never felt like I was missing anything. Bob truly did his homework which was very apparent when we went before the judge. Not only did we win the Motion to Suppress but we also made the arresting officer and DA look very unprepared which certainly helped our cause.
Would I recommend Bob? Absolutely. As with many things in life, you pay for what you get. If you're looking for the cheapest lawyer then expect the cheapest representation and poor results. In this case I went with an expert and I can certainly say it was worth every cent.

Words can not begin to explain my confidence in and gratitude for Mr. Rehkemper. My situation involved being charged with an DWI; however, it was a delicate situation due to events that followed and I had to have the absolute best attorney possible. Mr. Rehkemper took my phone call immediately and after meeting with him the next day we planned my case. Mr. Rehkemper was professional, brilliant and dedicated. I knew going into the "fight" that I was not guaranteed to win but he worked diligently to see that all evidence was presented, cases were referenced and that the facts were made known. Ultimately, I won my case with full suppression of all evidence. Not only did the officer not have legal reason to pull me over but denied me my rights. Mr. Rehkemper was very thorough in explaining the process to me and never once did I doubt his ability to handle my situation. My case need extra attention and he delivered! While in court I told him that if we won I would buy him a billboard. The email to me saying we had won had "billboard" in the subject line - needless to say, I OWE him far more than what I paid to have his expert defense. I am forever grateful. I would highly recommend Mr. Rehkemper and his staff. You may not always win but I guarantee you that if there is a way, Mr. Rehkemper will find it! You owe it to yourself to consult with him!

Bobby saved me from an OUI conviction. During the trial, he picked up on a subtle statement made by the arresting officer during his statements. His vast experience with the OUI laws combined with his ability to think quickly on his feet allowed him to expose a violation of the law by the officer. I would recommend Bobby to anyone that is looking for a highly qualified attorney.

I went to Mr. Rehkemper with an OWI case. I was embarrassed and really needed to keep my driving license for my job and I am young and didn't want an OWI haunting me for the next 12 years of my life. He was wonderful from the beginning, told me he couldn't guarantee a win but was going to look through everything for something he could use. He didn't seem to judge me. He explained everything that he was going to do and any time I called for questions he would either answer right away or call me back that day, encouraging me to call him if I had questions or needed something. He managed to get my case dismissed and saved me from losing my job and having it on my record. I have recommended him to anyone I know that needs him and if I ever need a lawyer again he's my man.

I was embarassed of my case. Bobby came in and listened and cared about what happened. I was so scared. He explained things so I could understand and walked me through this. I'm so happy to have him help me.

I was referred to Mr. Rehkemper from another attorney when I was pulled over for an OWI. He took my phone call at 8:30 p.m. and provided me with very clear direction on how to handle my situation. Less than 90 days later I won my D.O.T. hearing and my criminal case was dismissed. Bobby is not only extremely easy to work with but he is also extremely well versed in the law and our rights as citizens. On a scale from one to ten, this guy is a 12.

Excellent attorney. Robert did an amazing job with my case, kept me well informed and ALWAYS made time to answer my silly questions and constant emails. Not my brightest hour but Bobby helped get through it. This guy is very dedicated and hands down one of the smartest men I've ever met. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing legal help.

Upon contacting Robert Rehkemper for the first time, I knew I had contacted the right lawyer. I was arrested for an OWI. I contacted his office, as well as many others, but Robert's office was the only one that asked me to come in for a consult to listen to me. Others simply just quoted me a price and told me to let them know. I went in and talked to Robert about what had happened and was honest with him (this is important to whomever you talk to) and he was honest with me. Robert has a knowledge of the law like noone I have met before. It was comforting knowing that he put my best intrest first and guided me through every step of the process always informing me of what was going on and what my options were. Robert never promised me any specific results, only that I had a case and that he would defend it. I decided to take my case to trial and Robert agreed. I am glad I wasn't bullied into accepting any plea. We went to trial and Robert was more than prepared. After the first day of trial my case was dismissed. Without Mr. Rehkemper guiding me through, this and his knowledge and confidence, I may not have made it through this difficult time. I was charged with, wrongly I might add, 3rd offence OWI. A felony, which is very stressful to have to think that there is a chance of having to go to prison for something you didn't do. Robert put the case together with the facts and won. I can't thank him enough. I felt confident putting the single most important decission of my life in his hands. Thank You Robert!

Mr.Rehkemper was hired to represent myself and my son who was killed in a car/semi accident. Through the entire process and including "Trial". Mr. Rehkemper was and is, extremly educated, respectful and kept me informed every step of the way, including an eight day trial! He is never to busy for his clients.
If you are seeking an attorney who will make your cause his own, and who will go to the mat for you,and not back down, then Robert Rehkemper is who you want.
Myself and our entire family were treated with the upmost respect as clients."Bobby loves his work and it shows, he will not back down when your life, your rights, and your dignity are on the line.". Attorney Robert G Rehkemper III, is an outstanding lawyer you want on your side!

I recently was pulled over and given a owi/dui, And being a owner of a semi truck and driving being my career I had alot more on the line other than just losing my license it would have been a life changing experience and not one for the better, I felt that I was wrongfully pulled over and wanted to take a better look at things so I hired robert, or better known as Bob to comb threw this terrible event in my life, And as it turns out I was right and Bob was able to save my license and my career and I can say i've never got a dui. Bob let me call as many times as I wanted free of charge and kept me ifrormed via email as to how things were going in my case.

I know that everyone has their lawyer jokes and horror stories about them. Well no longer with GRL, more specificly Robert (Bobby) Rehkemper. I have been on goingly linked with this law firm and Bobby since September 2006 to present. He has always been nothing but caring, professional, and honest. I would trust him with my life. Bobby has the ability to calm you down and assure you that everything will be OK. He makes sure that you fully understand what your rights are and what the law is. Where to go from here, and what the likely outcome of your options/decisions will be. He understands, he get's it. He even returns phone calls/emails w/in the same day. Yes, I said the same day! Not days, weeks or if at all. I think that is why I respect and trust Bobby so much. He's real. He's not anything like the lawyer's that I have had to deal with in the past. They seem stuffy with no sense of humor and even talk down to you. If you have to go to a lawyer for advice, you are more than likely not going for the fun of it. You might as well get great accurate advice with a friendly atmosphere and a very knowledgeable attorney in return. I would most definatly recommend Bobby and thankfully call him my friend.

Bobby did an excellent job walking me thru this entire ordeal. He was very knowledgeable and attentive, and I am so pleased with the results. I would refer Bobby and his firm to anyone looking for some sort of positive in an overall an awful and negative situation. Bobby was that posotive for me and I dont think I would have made it w/ out him. I am now able to move on with my life and never have to say "I've have an OWI." Bobby made that possible.
