I couldn't have been more happy with Brian, he did a great job representing me and my case. He was very professional, he and his firm knew their legal stuff. They helped me understand all charges against me and fought very hard for me. If I ever need a lawyer again, I definitely will hire Brian Gurwitz again. I recomend him to anyone who needs a criminal lawyer.

I have retained Brian Gurwitz 2 times and he has saved me both times!!! I would not be where I am today if it was not for him. 1st case was a DUI case, I was pulled over and given a breathalizer test and blew just below the legal limit but the police said they felt I was impaired. Brian Gurwitz got the case dropped to a wet reckless and no DUI!!! Next case was a lot more serious. I was arrested for Felon In Possesion of a Firearm. I had a lot to lose on this 1. I have a great job, had just bought a house, my wife was pregnant and I was the sole income in the house hold. A anonymous person sent a picture of me at a gun range to the local police department who then got a search warrant for my home and found legally registered firearms in a gun safe. Police said I was looking at 6 years in prison. Brian got me probation and 3 months of house arrest. I owe the life I have now to Brian, He not only saved me, but my family, and my home also. I don't go out looking for trouble, but when it finds me I retain Brian Gurwitz hands down!!! He will never sugar coat things and will be honest. He doesn't sell fantasies or dreams but does keeps you in touch with the reality of the circumstances you are facing. Most of all...he does an outstanding job. Thank you for saving my life Brian!!!

In my search for an attorney, I came across several prospects that seemed knowledgable but also came off more interested in gouging me for money rather than looking out for my interest. There were also a few that just didn't seem to show any integrity which was definitely not what I was looking for. The "cheap" attorneys seemed more content in just pushing me to settle despite the ramifications.
Brian charges a flat fee for service based on the amount of time he anticipates to spend on the case but that has never stopped him from putting in what I consider an extremely large amount of effort when necessary. He goes above and beyond and fought for me relentlessly (but not in a pushy or combative manner) but was also wise enough to show me which battles were worth fighting and which weren't.
As a former DA turned defense attorney, I trusted him to understand the ins and outs of the system and he did not disappoint. An extra bonus was that he recently brought on Kyle Molchan who has just also been an incredible asset when I'm unable to reach Brian immediately. Kyle shows the same integrity and the synergy they have is great. I can't say enough to show my appreciation for all Brian and his team has done for me but would highly, highly recommend him to anyone who's looking for criminal representation. If anyone is looking to contact me directly as a reference, let Brian know and I'll happily do so.

I had to look for a lawyer to defend my case for "Reckless Evading," which is a wobbler and can be tried as a misdemeanor or felony. What seemed to be an easy case to be brought down to a misdemeanor because of the severity of my actions, ended up being a very stressful journey.
I was first paired with an incompetent lawyer who wouldn't even show up to my hearings. She was also immediately willing to settle with the sentence the judge was hinting to give me without showing any real effort of at least attempting to take it down to a lesser punishment.
I was then recommended by a close family friend to schedule a meeting with Brian and Kyle. I immediately noticed the difference between my previous lawyer and Brian. He was very knowledgeable, and even with his extremely busy schedule with his family and other clients, he still managed to make it to all of my hearings even if it were just a minor hearing which took a couple of minutes.
The judge was still willing to give me a felony which would have been very detrimental to my future as a graduating college student. Brian put up one of the best arguments I have ever heard, and delivered it to the court the best way possible during my open plea hearing. In the end, Brian was able to reduce my sentence to a misdemeanor.
I highly recommend Brian, he is the best lawyer out there.

Brian is a bright, knowledgeable attorney with a great attitude. He is very personable and attentive. He listened to my situation, explained my options, and got me the best possible outcome. I needed my record expunged and Brian handled everything. A short time later I received notice from the court that my entire criminal history had been expunged. I am grateful to Brian for all his hard work on my case and would recommend him to anyone. Truly a class act. Thanks for everything Brian...

When my son was accused of a crime he did not commit, our family was devastated and sent on an excruciatingly painful, emotional roller coaster. Our complete inexperience on similar matters landed us with unscrupulous attorneys who after 7 months of giving us the run around with callous indifference and taking our money did literally NOTHING. I was disheartened, exhausted and convinced that “ethical attorney” was an oxymoron. But then I met Brian Gurwitz.
From the very first meeting with him and his associate attorney I knew my son’s case would be in good, highly competent, ethical hands. He immediately immersed himself in the case; we were not just a client, we were human beings who had put their trust in him, a trust he honored thru the entire case. He was fully invested, determined, focused and comfortingly confident without making any promises. He was amazingly diligent and left no stone unturned in his search for the facts, uncovering the alleged victim’s less than unblemished background and highly questionable credibility. His associate attorney and his investigator were equally diligent in their research for the facts and their commitment to get justice for my son. At trial he was drama-free, professional, forceful, fully prepared, organized, never missing a beat. In less than 3 hours the jury returned a unanimous verdict of not guilty. Only 13 weeks had passed since Brian had taken the case!!
I wholeheartedly recommend Brian as an ethical, highly skilled, accessible attorney with a great sense of humor, who learns his cases from A-Z and who never loses sight of the fact that his client is a human being . Brian and his team will always be a very important part of our lives.

After a week of research and analysis, I retained Brian Gurwitz - on more than one occasion.
I cannot discuss the case(s) but they were very difficult. He exceeded each one beyond my expectations.
If I were to rate Brian from a scale of 1 to 10, he would be an easy 10 ++ starting with Intelligence, skill, knowledge and abilities. As a previously- successful prosecuting District Attorney, he has more than it takes to defend his client(s); for one thing, he can think like the prosecution and better plan his defense - he has been on "the other side."
The "plus" is for his genuine kindness and helpfulness. He instills trust and confidence. He is a good judge of character.
Brian treats his clients as friends yet maintains professionalism. I am at ease when I talk with Brian and I consider him a friend. Just as importantly, his honesty and integrity shines through. I can't say enough about him. I am grateful.
Look no further. Brian Gurwitz is the best - bar none!

I have to say of the number of attorneys I've come in contact with none even come close to Mr Gurwitz in communication and attentiveness. I highly recommend him as a first choice and can assure you that you won't need to spend sleepless nights worried if he's able to get the job done or not.

I posted my bail and got home after my arrest, but was astonished to find that my arrest was all over the news. I was now being portrayed as a monster to the public and my outlook was not very positive. I had reporters on my doorstep and threats in my email inbox. I was not allowed to see my children and I thought I would be going to jail. I knew that I needed an attorney, and I needed a really good attorney. I found Brian Gurwitz, and after retaining his services, my outlook changed. I was an alcoholic and I needed help, not punishment. Brian understood that and made that the priority. He really looked after me during the the entire process. At one point during the process while I was at home, I got seriously injured in a completely unrelated accident. Brian came and got me to a hospital! His excellent relationship with the court and prosecutor's office made it possible for him to relate the issues and find a mutually beneficial conclusion. I really mean beneficial. Brian was able to get me into a rehabilitation program instead of any jail time. I got the help I needed, not a prison sentence that would have taken me farther away from my family and a good future. Now, 3 years later. I have completed my sentence and remain sober and productive. Today, Brian is currently working on the expungement of my felony and the possible reduction to a misdemeanor. He has stayed with me from the very beginning with sound advice and steadfast encouragement. My whole life changed that fateful day when I was arrested. Thanks to Brian Gurwitz, it was changed for the better.
