Mr. Robert Ernenwein was outstanding in presenting my family members in a case last year. He was highly recommended to us by one of our friends. We met with him the same day we contacted his office and when we desperately needed to speak to a lawyer. We could not thank him enough for making it possible for us to consult with him late that evening after work. He took the time to listen and explained everything we should expect from the case which was dismissed. We were totally confident with him and very well represented by Mr. Ernenwein throughout the entire time. He is knowledgeable and truly a professional. My family and I would refer him and this fine law firm to anyone who needs a great criminal defense attorney.
I am a corporate lawyer in downtown Los Angeles. I have sent my referrals to Robert for years, and without exception he has done a terrific job. He is tenacious in fighting for the best possible results, and in the few cases where trial in necessary, he is quite skilled in the courtroom as well (I have seen him in action). In addition to being an experienced and skilled lawyer, he also is very efficient and cost effective. 5 stars across the board.
Robert Ernenwein came highly recommended and he proved to be the best decision I could have made! He was professional, friendly and prompt. He clearly defined the process, what I was up against, every option that he had available and intelligently used his experience and expertise to defend my case to the fullest. I felt well represented through the entire ordeal. If i can recommend Robert to anyone, i will do so here!
I have read some of the negative posts here and i will wholeheartedly argue that Robert never handled my case in poor disregard. He not only avoided a trial, but, went so far as to get a better result for me than anyone anticipated. This i will testify to anyone!
Thank you again Robert for being there for me.

Robert is literally one of the best Criminal Defense Attorney's I have ever come in contact with. My brother was arrested in October on three domestic violence counts in Redondo Beach, CA on vacation. He lives in NY. When I first contacted Robert my brother was in the Twin Towers detention center. He was not able to get through to us. Robert gave us the name of a bail bondsman who would ask for a smaller percentage of my brother’s $45,000.00 bond. Robert also worked with our budget. We do not have a lot of money and he was very kind and understanding of that. My brother is a New York City employee and when he was arrested he was at risk of losing his job. Robert helped us to save his job and make sure that once everything was over, my brother could go on with his normal life as if nothing happened. He also got my brother out of jail pretty quickly. When this first happened I drove up to Robert's office to meet up with him. I did not get out of work until 5:00 p.m. and I live in San Diego. By the time I got up to Robert's office it was close to 9:00 p.m. He sat for an hour and a half and explained everything to both my Mother and myself about what to expect. I have to say I was very impressed with him always being optimistic but keeping our expectations realistic. My first impression of him was I was very impressed. I work for Lawyers and I have to say for someone in that profession he has a lot more compassion and care than most. He literally is going through this trial with you. After several months of waiting for a date for the hearing, on December 4th the Prosecutor, (who has a reputation for taking guys like my brother down and making an example of them) wanted my brother to show up in court that day or the next. With no notice to his job and no regard for how much it would cost to get him out here. Robert asked the Judge to please consider my brothers location and please reconsider the date for trial. He was able to convince the Judge and Prosecutor to agree to a date in mid-January. This gave my brother time to make a reasonably priced flight and give his job proper notice that he will need to be absent. Robert and his team did an amazing job regarding the due diligence of the case as well. They hired a private investigator to listen to both the ex-girlfriend’s side of the story and a witness that was at the scene. After these interviews Robert was pretty confident the case would be dismissed but still reminding us to be prepared for what will happen if it is not. Ultimately the case was dismissed as he predicted. One other important aspect to point out about Robert and one colleague of his in particular (John) was literally any time me, my Mother or my Brother had a question we could get a hold of one of them. Since my family and I have never been through a Criminal investigation, we had many questions and many concerns. Robert and his team eased our minds every step of the way. Even the Secretary and the answering service were extremely accommodating. Overall I would recommend Robert Ernenwein to anyone. If anything ever happens again, I know exactly who to call. I cannot recommend him enough and I hope if you or someone you love ever is in a situation like this, you will call Robert. He will get you the best results and you will be at ease knowing you have an attorney who literally is going through this with you. Robert and his team go above and beyond what needs to be done. If anyone from his office reads this, I really cannot thank you enough.
We are extremely thankful to have been guided to Mr. Ernenwein, he got us thru a case that we where honestly frightened to face. He help us, with something that is going to change the paths of our lifes forever. He is great and I would recommend him to anyone that needed his service. U can always count on him and he's great at what he does. John Reyes his Operations Manager was also very helpful. .Thanks Robert and John! Happu Holidays!!
This is for an experience I had working with Mr Erninwein when I was a minor over 15 years ago. Glad to finally be able to give something small back through a positive review.
I was 17 and had a bit of a troubled youth and got into using some drugs. Despite this I was a straight A student and had just been accepted to a UC. I was just a bit side tracked and Mr Erninwein helped me gain a second chance. I had been charged with felony possession, but after a year of hard work on both of our ends the case was dismissed.
I may not be where I am today (a social worker of 11 years providing trauma therapy) if it wasn't for that dismissal. Not having the felony on my record allowed me to afford graduate school through grants and get on with my life. I learned my lesson big time and straightened out my life and am doing what I can to help contribute to a better society.
So you've made a mistake and got yourself in trouble with the law, the last thing you need is to make another by hiring just any attorney! Robert Ernenwein is the gold standard of his profession, he is as skillful and knowledgeable as a criminal defense attorney can be, with almost 30 years of experience having worked both as deputy district attorney and criminal defense lawyer, allows him to use his vast resources to negotiate the best possible deal for your case. I had to ask this man for help twice in my life over the past ten years on two completely separate cases and just as I was amazed by his compassion in handling my case then , this time he was also able to get the charges against me dismissed entirely!
He is a man of great integrity and will treat you with respect and throughout this whole experience Robert and every member of his staff were extremely courteous and always available to answer all my questions and concerns with special thanks to John .
I highly recommend Robert Ernenwein , you can not go wrong with this man as your lawyer and I am so lucky to know him both as my attorney and as a friend , I owe him my freedom .
Robert experience far exceeds other attorneys. He's genuine, knowledgable, and compassionate. I am very grateful for his dedication to my case from beginning to end. As a person and attorney, he is second to none. I owe him my freedom and my second chance.
Mr, Ernenwien handled my son's case professionally and also with great caring for our family. I live in Pennsylvania and Mr. Ernenwein was able to handle all the legal issues required by the case in California and fully understood the additional anxiety placed on our family due to the distance separating us, and Mr. Ernenwein and his staff demonstrated great compassion for our situation, bringing our case to the best possible legal conclusion.
