Through a series of unfortunate incidents with a past employer, I received representation from Mr. Garret Weinrieb at the recommendation of a highly notable civil law firm also in Van Nuys.
For over a year, Garret and his excellent team were not only there for me as a client but also as a friend. He walked me through every step, keeping constant communication and proving why he is the best in the business. His angle and view on the case, along with the fantastic relationships he holds with the District Attorney and array of Judges, was exceptionally warming and a relief each time we were due in court. He has a phenomenal way of making his clients calm and prepared for each event.
Initially thinking this situation would ruin my life, Garret and his team in fact did the complete opposite. They gave me back the life I once had and restored my faith when I believed it was all gone.
Garret has continued to stay in touch not only with myself, but also checking in on my family as well. I recommend Garret with everything I have. He is exceptionally educated, respectful, honest, hard working, passionate about his career, his clients and will fight until the end, always making sure the client is aware of the situation.
Even if you find yourself not needing his services, I would also recommend seeking his advice or referral to another firm as he is highly respected and amongst a fantastic group of attorneys.
My family and I were desperately looking for the best pqossible attorney to represent my brother whom was accused with very serious charges: child molestation. After days of constant research, I found Mr. Garret Weinrieb and my family and I are very pleased with his work and ultimately with the outcome. While my brother's charges were very serious with a potential life sentence, Garret fought tirelessly to lower my brother's sentence to 15 years. I'm sure that if it would have not been for Garret's dedication, tenacity and experience, my brother's sentence would have been much longer. My family and I cannot express enough our gratitude towards Garret for being honest with us about the severity of the case since day one and for always being available every time that I needed to ask him a question (since I was the spokesperson for my family); Garret even offered to meet with the whole family on a Sunday afternoon so everybody got a chance to ask him questions. Even though there are no excuses for child molestation, Garret listened to us (the family) about my brother's childhood, illness and mental status and he strategically thought about hiring a psychologist to determine my brother's mental status and he cleverly used it in his defense. So, if you are in need of a smart, professional, honest, caring, committed and well experienced attorney, Garret is the way to go. Be assured that he will fight tirelessly on your favor and will not settle with anything that is not the best for you. Also, he will keep you informed of every step of the process. Thank you for everything you did for my brother Garret!!! (:
Mr. Weinrieb was extremely professional and ensured that I stayed on top of my legal obligations. He was open, honest, and made me feel comforted throughout my ordeal.
Garret was extremely helpful and kept me very well informed throughout the process. Garret did a great job handling my case and was very straight forward which was extremely appreciated. Garret helped me reach a deal that all parties felt was fair for the crime. I would highly recommend him to anyone I know in need of legal assistance.
Hiring Garret as my criminal defense attorney was the best decision I ever made. I was a first time offender and a college student, so having a criminal record really wasn't an option for me; Garret completely understood and sympathized with that. He immediately got started on my case and after several months of his hard, diligent work, it paid off! Thanks to Garret my record will be clear and most importantly, HE SAVED MY FUTURE!
I cannot stress enough how important it is to invest in a good attorney when dealing with sticky situations. If you're at all concerned about your future, hire Garret.
I met with several criminal defense attorneys in order to determine who would be best for me, and what stood out about Garret the most was how honest he was. He won't feed you lies or make empty promises about your case; he'll always be straight forward with you. Not to mention, he seemed the most knowledgable of them all, extremely sharp, and confident. And clearly, he was able to deliver an amazing outcome even when the odds were completely against me in this case... the outcome he was able to get speaks for itself.
Honestly, this review doesn't even come close to doing him justice. So to put it simply, he's an exceptional lawyer and my best advice to anyone is: hire him.
Thank you Garret!
Grateful I was referred to Garret! He was very Knowledgeable- able to explain the process as we went through everything.
Thank you again Garret!
HIGHLY recommend attorney Garret Weinreib. I went to him in need of some legal representation. From the very first conversation, he made me feel at ease and was able to put my situation in perspective. He is incredibly honest and forthright. He clearly explained the situation and went to work on my behalf with an impressive sense of urgency. He was always patient and willing to answer all my questions. He replied to all of my texts, phone calls and/ or emails in a very timely manner. He has a wealth of experience negotiating with the judges and DA's in Los Angeles. My case was heard in the Van Nuys courthouse and he knew all the DA's and judges. His extensive network of professional relationships was invaluable. At the end of it all, my issue is practically "going away," and I can't thank him enough. He is relentless, and fights to get the best possible outcome for his clients. I highly recommend him to everyone I know. His rates are very reasonable as well. Highly recommended!!
I can't thank Garret enough. I was wrongfully accused of a crime and was facing a long prison term. Basically, my life was on the line. Garret's compassion, knowledge, skill, and dedication saved my life. I was found not guilty. I can't thank him enough!
Garret has helped me through two DUI cases, one I deserved and one I didn't. He is experienced enough to be well acquainted with the nuances and intricacies of the legal and penal systems. With both cases, he treated me with respect and without judgement. He was honest with me about what to expect, followed through with me in a timely manner, answered any and all questions thoroughly and proved himself to be a true advocate for me in the courtroom. It's a real gift to have someone like Garret fighting for you. I have recommended Garret already and will do so indefinitely.
Hiring Garret to represent me in my felony burglary case was one of the best decisions I had ever made. From the start, he was always available and prompt about returning my calls, emails and text messages. I highly recommend him to anyone who’s in need of a lawyer. He went above and beyond to get the felony burglary charge reduced to a misdemeanor burglary to finally a petty theft. This was no easy task. He went as far up the chain of commands as he could (from DA to head DA) and met with them on multiple occasions and when they still wouldn’t budge, he found another way to get the most favorable outcome. I truly felt taken care of and that I was in great hands. Garret is an honest, sincere lawyer who is a man of his word and truly cares about his clients. Furthermore, his rates are more than reasonable. My felony case was billed at a rate equivalent to a misdemeanor and when the DA was unwilling to reduce the felony, Garret honored his word and made the commitment that even though he’ll have to put in significantly more work, he’ll honor the reduced rate he quoted me without compromising the quality of his work. Wow – extremely honest, generous, genuine and sincere! Words cannot express the gratitude I have towards Garret and his team! Thank you for everything! Simply, the best!
