    • I recommend Babak Semnar.
    • I hired Babak 1-3 years ago.
    • Babak handled my Insurance matter.

    I retained Babak's help for an insurance claim after I suffered a traumatic car accident and dealt with an insurance company that was unwilling to handle the matter. Without his help, I would not have been able to receive the reimbursement I was due. The ordeal was long and tiring. At one point I wanted to count my losses and walk away, that was, until Bob came into the picture. He was aggressive, poised and made me a priority, unlike attorneys I've worked with in the past. I wasn't at fault and he made that very clear as he settled my claim after various disputes with the other insurance provider. He was unbelievably supportive and came through for me when I needed it the most. Moving forward, he will be the only attorney within his field that I utilize. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants results fast. Thank you for all that you've done, Babak!

    It is my pleasure to recommend Bob Semnar as one of the best Civil/Criminal attorneys in Riverside County. During one of the most difficult times in my life I needed the help of a top rate attorney. I didn’t have lots of money and I needed someone to believe in me and help. Thank God I met Bob Semnar! Bob quickly provided an overview of options, settling my case better than I expected. Although my case may be considered small to some, to me is was my life and Bob worked on my case with the strongest level of motivation and work ethic. He is thorough, strategic, prompt, efficient, communicative, knowledgeable and prepared. His staff extended their support and kindness throughout the entire ordeal. I would be happy to recommend Bob Semnar for anyone needing help with a legal matter and I will tell you how lucky you are to have him stand beside you in court. I owe you Bob!

    • I recommend Babak Semnar.
    • I hired Babak 1-3 years ago.
    • Babak handled my Car / Auto Accident matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Bob came highly recommended by a relative who happens to be in Law, so I trusted their judgement . Bob was very clear and concise and told it like it is. I had been in an automobile accident which was clearly the other person's fault and thought that because it was so clear cut that I could handle it myself..... Not! Being quite naive to this type of thing I thought all would be fine. Well insurance companies being insurance companies, it was not fine. When my own doctor told me that I should have an attorney handle this, I turned to Bob. Bob took charge immediately, handled everything, got right to the point and laid it out with me. We settled with the insurance company with a much better settlement than I imagined because of Bob. If there is one thing I learned from all of this is to never try and handle these types of things on your own and I was so glad I hired Bob. Thank you Bob, so happy I found you! Very honest and very good with his clients' best interest always first.. Thank you Bob and I recommend Bob for any legal issues.

    I am writing this to share with you what an outstanding lawyer Bob is. We first met Bob when our son was arrested for false allegations. We had another attorney at the time and we were not happy with him as he just was in this for the money instead of defending our son. And a friend recommended Bob. Our friend called Bob and Bob contacted us and met us at the jail where he went into see our son. Stunned and surprised our son said your not my lawyer. Bob said I got a call from your good friend &J%$#@ he sent me for you. Once he said that our son felt at ease that he was in good hands. Bob and his staff are amazing. The one thing that stuck out to me when we first sat down with Bob is when he said you must understand the process, go through the process and accept the process. Once we did this is it was much easier. Since at first it was very hard especially when your son never has been in trouble. After a long 7 months a plea was reached it was the best deal for our son cause at the end of the day liers don't win!!! He was exonerated of the alleged charges and his record will be expunged like it never happened. Our son never once waiver-ed with his faith in GOD. Bob's team is one you want on your side. We highly recommend Bob and his staff with out question. As far as we are concern he is the best criminal defense attorney in Riverside county. Don't look any farther. Bob has our son's back the entire time! Thank you Bob for job well done...All the best from the the family that had FAITH!!!

    Great attorney. I had dealt with several other criminal defense attorneys regarding a marijuana case, all of which took my money, then continued my case. This went on for over two years. Then I met Mr. Semnar. What a difference. I totally agree with the other reviews. He is approachable, yet aggressive in the court room. Don't waste your time and money like I did. Hire Bob Semnar.

    • I recommend Babak Semnar.
    • I hired Babak 1-3 years ago.
    • Babak handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    We had never hired an attorney until a friend suggested we do so during this difficult time. We were so fortunate to have been recommended to Mr. Semnar. Not only is he an excellent attorney, he is a person of character and a caring individual. He was completely honest on all aspects of the case, informative with the upcoming events and very comfortable in a courtroom. His confident demeanor put me at ease and helped our family get through a very stressful situation. I would absolutely recommend Mr. Semnar and am so fortunate he was recommended to our family.

    • I recommend Babak Semnar.
    • I hired Babak more than 3 years ago.
    • Babak handled my Business matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Bob is very helpful and guided us every step of the way during our case. He always returns our calls and is very quick to respond to our questions. We have never experienced an attorney that is as great as Bob is on every level. Bob is responsive, knowledgeable of the laws, and never left us wondering what is going on with our case. He is by far the BEST attorney in Southern California. I would recommend Bob Semnar as a top notch trial attorney. He is truly invested in the client and cares to see it through to the end with the maximum result for his client(s). Bob Semnar was our answer in a time of stress (that required legal action) and will be for anyone who has the privilege to have him as an attorney.
