Garret is not just a great lawyer- he is a great person. From our first discussion over the phone I knew Garret was down to earth and truly dedicated to his craft. Before we had even agreed to his representation in my case, he was happily answering all my questions in full detail- no matter how dumb those questions were. He not only walked me through the steps following my arrest in full detail, but spoke to me frankly and honestly as to what would most likely happen and what our best options would be. As an attorney, Garret works harder than most to make sure his client is not just satisfied but pleased with their outcome.
If you're looking for seriously dedicated representation that not only understands your circumstances but will fight for you like their own, Garret is your guy. Nothing beats honesty, and he spits it with utmost sincerity and commitment to your goals.

I was facing up to 3 years of jail time on drug charges due to a casual night gone horrendously awry. Garret believed that i wasn't that kind of a person and was empathetic to my circumstances before and during the time of the incident. Despite the allegations, he worked hard to convince the people that I had the character and drive to build a future worth preserving. I was able to avoid jail. I was given the opportunity to even repair my record. I feel a tremendous amount of weight lifted from my shoulders and have Garret and my family to thank. He is a fantastic attorney and very down to earth guy. Would recommend

Last year I was pulled over by a police officer, who gave me a misdemeanor for driving with a foreign license. As I am a foreign student I was not perfectly aware of the law and found myself in an ugly situation, as a misdemeanor would have created a criminal record and put my visa on risk.
Mr. Weinrieb was recommended to me by a close friend and I couldn't have been in better hands. He guided me through my case with incredible professionalism, care and knowledge. He successfully got rid of the misdemeanor and provided me from being involved in further trials. I would recommend Mr. Weinrieb to everyone that is not only looking for an extremely talented and professional lawyer, but also for kindness and understanding.

On July 20, 2012, a mass shooting occurred inside of a Century movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, during a midnight screening of the film The Dark Knight Rises. A gunman, dressed in tactical clothing, set off tear gas grenades and shot into the audience with multiple firearms, killing 12 people and injuring 70 others. The sole suspect, James Eagan Holmes, was arrested outside the cinema minutes later.
On the very next night I got arrested on hearsay from 2 bouncers working a North Hollywood, CA nightclub claiming I had said I was going to shoot up the place like the before mentioned person. This happened on my first Friday in California where I celebrated with a friend our first week of training in a 747 manufacturing assignment. I had just relocated for work related reasons and before I could finish my training I got arrested and charged with two criminal charges of threat.
I was kicked out of a club and stayed to wait until my friend got out and two bouncers who told me to leave several times just coordinated to call the cops and made up claims. Soon after the cops showed up, my world turned upside down. Luckily I stumbled into Garret and if you are lucky enough, so will you.
Bottom line is he made sure everything was viewed in full scope and addressed. Could not ask for more than that but to actually receive that attention was assuring. The outcome, considering all the factors, was excellent.

Garret took care of all the hearings and court appearances for my case. I only had to make one appearance. I received the absolute minimum sentence for a case that had complicating circumstances. All this for a very reasonable fee. Definitely recommend.

My family hired Mr. Weinrieb when my older cousin was falsely accused of assault with a deadly weapon. Unlike many other lawyers I spoke with, Mr. Weinrieb was 100% honest and straightforward. Unlike other lawyers, he did not make wild promises or guarantees about the outcome of the case. What he did guarantee is that he would work as hard as humanly possible to help my family. He was a man of his word, and he worked extremely hard on our case to obtain a fantastic result in the case. He kept my cousin out of jail and allowed him to go on and live a productive life. I cannot be happier about his work, and he is definitely the go-to attorney if you want a highly intelligent and hard working lawyer who gets along well with the prosecutors and judges in the court, and gets great results for his clients.

I can not find the perfect words to express my gratitude towards the help of Garret Weinrieb in defending myself and a friend in a petty theft case. I was extremely worried that my record was going to be tainted forever but Garret helped us find a peace of mind. Weinrieb will go above and beyond to help his clients; NEVER would I have thought searching online for a lawyer would have been the best choice; and luckily it was Garret who fought & represented us. I can now look for a job and have no worries it appearing on my background. I was blessed and thankful for the help of Garret Weinrieb. I RECOMMEND GARRET IN A HEARTBEAT, HE IS THE MAAAAAN!!! Not only is he a great lawyer but I can now say he is a great friend. Thank you for all you have done for us G, you're blessing in the skies. :)

This was a scary situation, I was involved with a woman I has just met and consensual sex turned into living nightmare. I had no idea the world of sh*t I was in and felt confused... that is, until I met Mr Weinrieb. He took me in, explained the legal process step by step, and gave me clarity in a circumstance that was embarrassing and disconcerting. Knowledge truly is power - and comforting, because with Garret's insight I have no idea how I would have gotten out of the worst experience of my life. Thank you Weinrieb Law Firm.

I was charged with a petty theft misdemeanor. I don't know the first thing about hiring a lawyer, but after meeting with a couple of sleazy ones that made me feel hopeless I found Garret. I feel absolutely blessed to have had him represent me, not only is he a wonderful person, but he is great at his job. He was always very honest with me about my case and also really patient with all my questions and concerns. He did some research for me and found great resources and programs to help me and my case. After many meetings with the prosecutor Garret got me a great deal where my charge got dropped to an infraction trespassing and all I had to do was pay a fine. If you want a great lawyer who will work his butt off to get you the best possible outcome in your case then this is definitely the guy for you.

Today I see a light at the end of the tunnel.
After being charged for petty theft because of my friend I was with, former friend now.
I was facing imigration consequences and employment consequences. I live in Vegas and
The charge was in CA. He never lied to me or made false promises. I never went to court and he was able to reduce my charge to disturbing the peace infraction which I believe has no immigration consequences. I am to do 15 days of community service and my case will be closed. This was the best outcome I could ask for. If your looking for a lawyer with a heart garret is your man. He was patient with all my questions and really does all he can for you . I will not hesitate to refer my fam and friends if they ever need a lawyer.
Thank you garret for your patience and all you do for your clients. My future is not over because of you :)
