Robert has represented my interests several times in legal matters. He has consistently offered well founded, objective, knowledgeable advice to enable me to make informed decisions. He is hardworking, aggressive in support of his clients, and scrupulously honest. I strongly recommend him.
First of all - Rob Gruler's professionalism was the first thing I noticed. I believe that it is imperative in his position to be be compassionate and knowledgable with any case or situation that comes his way. He did exactly that for me. After meeting him just once, I was confident in his ability to execute and was happy with the process he took with me and my family. He left everyone with a great understanding with what was going on and what to expect. I can't say enough good things about him and his work. I would recommend him to anyone. THANKS AGAIN ROB!
I met with Mr. Gruler regarding my particular circumstances. This was the first time I had met with an attorney and was surprised at how inviting and comfortable the consultation was due to preconceived notions of attorneys. When facing prosecution it is easy to become overwhelmed by: police presence; legal ramifications; a sense that you assumed guilty; mistreatment; pretrial proceedings; and the entire defense process in general. Mr. Gruler was very knowledgeable regarding case law and statutes relevant to my situation. Thus, we were able to cover the different legal avenues available for me in an extremely understandable fashion. Having an attorney who provides assurance and a believability that you are valued, particularly during times of distraught, was incredibly comforting and something anyone accused of wrongdoing should seek. Because Mr. Gruler facilitated these feelings within myself is why I am writing this review and wanted to express my steadfast approval of his work.
I hired Mr. Robert F. Gruler Jr. in the amount of $5,000 for defense in a criminal case in the Superior Court of Maricopa County. The only thing he did was request numerous continuances and filed one Motion to Suppress in which was ruled on as untimely and without merit because he failed to read the case documents to make his Motion valid and disregarded the Judge's clear orders of how/when to file a Motion. Prior to heading to trial Mr. Robert Francis Gruler Jr. tried to force me to take a plea in order to avoid going to trial and having to do any work in which I could have done for free with a Public Defender long ago. I refused and filed my own Expedited Motion to Continue in order to Reappoint New Counsel. After Mr. Robert Francis Gruler Jr. read a copy of my Motion he proceeded to tell me out of all his clients I was the one who complained the most. I wouldn't be complaining if I felt I was being represented properly. Upon the Judge granting my Motion and removing Mr. Robert Francis Gruler Jr. as my counsel of record he approached the Bench to speak to the Judge and then had my bail amount raised and I was placed in jail! This is what happens after paying $5000 and standing up for my rights? If he would've spent the same amount of time and effort in representing me as he did getting me thrown in jail I probably wouldn't be typing this right now. I have also filed complaints with the Better Business Bureau and The State Bar of Arizona and am currently seeking Fee Arbitration to receive my money back. All of this is public information and can be verified. Take my advice and no matter how great he sounds do not hire nor trust Mr. Robert Francis Gruler Jr. if you care about your freedom!
Mr Gruler is an excellent attorney. He defended me on a DUI case while I live in another state. He was always very knowledgable about the law and always gave me a straight forward answer. His knowledge put my worries to rest. He put in many many hours on my case to insure I wasn't settling for anything I shouldn't, and always consulted me before any decision was made. I would recommend Mr Gruler to anyone in need of Arizona law defense.
My attorney, Robert Gruler, not only handled my case professionally, with dignity and kept an open line of communication with me, through out my case, but also educated and helped me understand the process, which allowed me make smarter legal decisions.
Robert I just want to thank you again, I learned a lot. Don't change the way you do things, and I wish you a very successful career.
Robert was very reassuring & guided us to a resolution that was acceptable., We have not had to deal with the judicial system, so we had a million questions, and he patiently answered them . His court room presentation was excellent. It appeared he is well respected among his piers. Since we have never hired an attorney before, we were not sure what to expect. Dealing with Robert was , very pleasant, and his knowledge gave us a sense of relief . It was really important to hire the right attorney - we were glad he represented us. Thank you
I feel like i was in good hands. This could have cost me more in insurance.
Thank you so much for your help. Robert Gouin
I am new to Mesa and was not prepared for the amount of traffic cameras. I have a commercial license and the consequences of the citation I received in the mail would have been very expensive and time off work to complete required classes. I felt I was not guilty of the infraction and called Robert for help. I explained the situation to him and was assured justice would be served. He kept me informed at every step. Notified me by email about court dates and any updates. I was relived when I got the call that my case was dismissed. I am very pleased with the service I got and professionalism received from the firm. I will recommend his services to any one I know that needs them. Thank you very much for saving me time and money.
Robert was able to successfully defend the indefensible. When I walked into court I expected the worst but was able to walk out with the case dismissed. His knowledge of the law and my case was very good.
