I was given a ticket for a misdemeanor hit and run. Right from the start he was extremely confident he could get it dismissed. It took 2.5 years, but he was able to explain to the Judge and D.A. the true facts of the case. Ultimately he got it dismissed. He knew how to keep me calm when he needed to, and there were many events that occurred mainly due to the "victim" who was completely unreasonable. Also, he never charged me more than the original amount, which was unbelievably fair and reasonable. He was referred to me through a friend and I have thanked her several times!
Rohn is very straight forward and able to make two sides meet in the middle, even with an irrational person thrown into the mix. It was a little scary for me, never having ANY kind of criminal conviction, but his professionalism and ability to help me understand how all of this works was instrumental in helping me not totally lose my cool. Hands down, I would refer him but hope to never use his services again.

From my initial meeting with Mr Barrow, I was extremely comfortable and knew I retained the right lawyer. Rohn made me feel as though my case was always his top priority. Rohn understood that a complete dismissal was imperative, as any other result could have been disastrous to my career which requires a security clearance. He began working with the city prosecutor, and kept the pressure on until the dismissal was secured.
Rohn spoke with me very frequently, always keeping me fully informed up to the minute. I never had to wonder about the status of my case, he made sure I always knew. His passion towards working this case was evident, as he always sounded enthusiatic when we spoke. He also did a great job in validating my beliefs regarding the way my family and I were treated by the police.
God forbid I ever have a need for a criminal defense attorney again. But if I do, the only attorney I will call is Rohn Barrow.

Mr. Barrow handled my case superbly! He got me the dismissal I needed to keep my job. Rohn is excellent at getting his clients the resolutions they need. He worked with the District Attorney’s offices in helping them to understand the facts of my case not contained in the police reports. And, he worked tirelessly to get the job done right.
From our first meeting, Rohn displayed his skill, experience, and understanding of the law as it related to my case. He let me know up front he couldn’t promise a specific result but he did promise to give it his all. Rohn let me know he was in the court my case was set in several times a week and he knew both the judge and the prosecutor. He told me he “packages” his client so the “people” have a complete picture of the individual not just what the police wrote in their report. He had me collect, what he termed “Happy Letters” and a resume which he would include under a cover letter explaining the facts of the case from our standpoint and what we wanted as an outcome. He also let me know cases are like fine wine and cheese, they take time to create the final product.
I was arrested for a felony, and I was frightened out of my mind. I thought I was going to lose my security clearance, and then my job. Rohn started working the case before it was filed and it was filed only as a misdemeanor. The filing deputy DA couldn’t do any more than that because of the police reports. Rohn told me not to worry and that he would handle everything because it was now only a misdemeanor and I didn’t have to go to court. Rohn told me he knew the calendar DA and she was very fair and if something could get done she would do it. The first offer was 60 days of jail and 10 days of Cal Trans. Rohn wrote the letter to the Deputy DA and gave her the “package” and asked her to think about it. He let her know my situation in detail. He told me the best way to handle this matter is cards face up. It paid off with a dismissal. It told me he is straight shooter and the DAs know that. He also told me he is the nice guy you never want to meet. I think very highly of him but I never want to need his services again.
