    • I recommend Robert Hickey.
    • I hired Robert 1-3 years ago.
    • Robert handled my DUI / DWI matter.

    I am a law school graduate going through the CA Bar Moral Application process. Unfortunately, during that period, I was arrested and charged with DUI. Being convicted with a DUI, you get a minimum of 3 years probation and this meant I had to kiss my chances of becoming an attorney for a long time. Factually, the prosecutor had a very strong case against me. So Robert had to put in motion his special negotiation skills and his know how.

    Fortunately, almost a year after my arrest, Robert and his team were able to negotiate a plea of "wet reckless" which carried with it only 1 year probation, but terminable in 6 months as long as I have not committed another offense and have complied with the fees, etc.

    I recommend him and his team highly as they are very professional and knowledge in this field of practice.

    • I recommend Robert Hickey.
    • I hired Robert more than 3 years ago.
    • Robert handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Greatest lawyer ever he got me off the hook with a year hanging over my head and a pregnant girlfriend when my case was told bull. When I did eventually have to show up to court he got my case dismissed that very day, even after I told him to sign a deal for 200 hours of Caltrans and a few years of probation his answer was to have faith in him because he had faith me. The only thing that he asked of me was to make a promise to him that I would stay out of trouble so that I wouldn't ever need him again. Five years later and Ive kept that promise and so you know that my situation was real my name is Richard e reed jr tell him I recommended him to you and thank you Robert hickey for my freedom

    This guy really helped me when I was in a serious bind. As I recall, I was SOL, and he brought me from serious jail time, to a lesser sentence. I truely thank him!

    I hope you discover the power of Hickey!

    • I do not recommend Robert Hickey.
    • I hired Robert more than 3 years ago.
    • Robert handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I signed a retainer with this attorney. He dropped me like a hot potato and didn't want to inform me of his decision. He has either very poor recollection of events or perhaps chooses to lie about them especially when they can easily be checked. When I asked him for a refund of the fees, he offered me half. I demanded a full refund on the basis of his decision to breach our contract as well performing absolutely nothing on my behalf in & outside of court. I had to go through the hassle of taking him to the State Bar for arbitration
