Imagine you are interviewed about a case, and then never heard anything about it again - until 10 years later you are arrested for charges you never knew about. To describe it in one word - devastating! In one afternoon our whole life was upside down and we felt helpless. We hired an attorney in the area who urged us to take a plea deal, but we were confident about our case even when she wasn't and we refused to take the plea deal. It was time to find someone new so we Google searched, asked for recommendations, looked at online reviews, etc. Robert stood out in our interviews because he was instantly passionate about our case. He listened to our extremely long explanation of the intricate nature of the case and all of the little bits of information we thought were key. He really took the time to analyze the information we were giving him, provide feedback, and advise us even though we hadn’t retained him yet. He was able to give us a key piece of knowledge that dramatically changed the direction of our case. I asked about the cost to retain his services for this case and was a little surprised by the cost – it was much more than we paid the previous attorney. He explained, very patiently, that this is what it takes to defend this type of case. He couldn’t have been more on-point. Looking back on it now, he was worth every single penny and then some. The time and resources it took to defend this case were quite extensive and the consequences for losing were high. We also looked at the cost of continuing services with the attorney we had already retained and calculated that her fees would add up to the same cost, if not more, by the time we got through trial as she charges hourly.
Robert explained everything to us every step of the way. He explained that there were times when we wouldn’t hear from him or his team – simply because nothing was going on with the case. Even though we were living it every minute of every day, that’s not the reality for the attorneys or the court system. Often times they are waiting for evidence, waiting for a hearing, waiting, waiting, waiting. (Did I mention it was on-going for a year and a half?) Not only did we get the time and expertise of Robert throughout our case but we also got the expertise of his dedicated and amazing staff. The majority of the time, we worked with Robert but when he was in other trials there was always someone there to answer our questions and provide guidance. We crossed our fingers and hoped the prosecution would offer a plea deal that would make it worth pleading guilty to a crime that wasn’t committed and put this all behind us but it never came. We decided to decline their plea deals and take our chances in trial. Robert warned us that trial is risky but pleading guilty, jail time, and being a convicted felon seemed worse than taking our chances with a jury. Robert was impressive in the court room. He was always good-natured, calm, and kind in our interactions, but in trial he defended this case like his own life depended on it. Robert maintained a high level of professionalism and respect while arguing his point on our behalf and shocked the court room with some of the motions he was granted – they had never been granted before. During our trial, his daughter /partner was also present as his co-counsel. We loved how the two of them worked together with their different perspectives and were really on top of every word that was said in that court room – it was obvious they were as invested in this as we were. Out of three charges, two were dismissed, one resulted in a hung jury and was also dismissed. Overall, Robert and his team exceeded our expectations by leaps and bounds. We had the opportunity to work with 4 total attorneys throughout this case (for different states we needed different attorneys) and none of them came close to the professionalism, passion, care, concern, dedication, knowledge, focus and piece of mind Robert and his team gave us.

"In looking for understanding in any problem, personal challenge, situations the try to drags downs to us has a human being, we always looking at the critical moment in to find the right solution. "But" at the critical moment is not never a right solution to find. "What" we must looking is for a "new perspective". The perspective rest with in the wisdom of attorney Perez. In our first phone interview he took the time to listen, to understand the situation in question. He's team specially Mrs. Linder is a group of high scale professionals that goes service beyond expectations. Don't thing a bit if you know that you being investigating, call Mr. Perez before you get charge with any crime. If you looking for some one who will taking care this guy is your guy. I am original from Mexico if you Hispanic and looking for a lawyer who will taking care you please don't waste your time call Mr. Perez.
Thank you Attorney for the great work, your understanding and wisdom.
God Bless you and you team!

I knew very well the qualities I was looking for when picking an attorney. I wanted to find a lawyer that had the intelligence and skill to help a member of my family in a very difficult legal situation and one who would listen to us and believe in us. Robert and his legal team have the empathy that so often is lacking in a lawyer/client relationship. And most importantly, Robert achieves results!! He saved a member of my family and in the process saved our whole family from what could have been years and years of grief.
When we first came to Robert, the situation was extremely difficult and entangled. He right away suggested steps to solve the immediate crisis (which involved also thinking "outside of the box") and from then on helped us to follow a very determined path which resulted in complete victory.
Throughout this process, Robert was very empathetic and positive, which also differentiates him from other criminal attorneys I have come across. He listens. He does not promise more than he can deliver, but he gives hope. And it turns out that this hope is entirely justified! Furthermore, Robert is very open to feedback and input, which I also find invaluable. Every client has his story and this story needs to be heard.
I HIGHLY recommend Robert and his legal team!

Robert Perez is a great Attorney. I came to him when I was accused of horrific sexual contact with a minor crime, which I am completely innocent of. A lot of the facts of the accusations came from a minor whom I truly cared for as a father, but unfortunately my kindness and sincerity was misinterpreted as inappropriate, and it didn't help that I come for a culture that is very expressive of affection by hugging and embracing people you care for (NEVER AGAIN), and even worse, in my profession, I work with women as well. I told Robert that I am innocent, and he fought for me, day in and day out. It was a turbulent and stressful even that has shaken my life and that of my family. In the end, Robert Perez believed in me and he saw through all the smoke-mirrors and was able to reach an equitable resolution in my favor. I will recommend Robert Perez to anyone who's wrongly accused. He fights to the finish, and I am glad I went to him.

Robert was very patient and took time to hear the details of my case and was very straight forward in sharing his perspectives. I was grateful for his knowledge of the judicial system as a whole and the specific people such as the judges and which courts were the best fit to hear the unique details of my specific case.

Nearly a year ago my life was turned upside down when I was accused of a very serious sex crime. I faced years in prison and sex offender registration. Finding Robert was a godsend ! I was very impressed from the very first consultation when he picked up the phone and called the investigating detective and started asking questions about my case. Luckily for me I talked to Robert before I talked to any police. When faced with a serious crime, never talk to police. They do not have your best interests in mind. Find a competent attorney like Robert Perez. I found Robert and his team to be very compassionate and professional. They communicated with me every step of the way as to what to expect. Robert does not sugarcoat anything, he lets you know all the possibilities of what could happen in your case. I faced an uphill battle fighting these charges, but Robert's skillful interviews of the witnesses unraveled many inconsistencies , and his years of experience with expert witness's was the nail in the coffin of the prosecutions case. Many months went by and plea deals were offered, but Robert and his team persisted and finally the case was Dismissed ! I think many prosecutors would think twice before going up against this guy. He is impressive ! Thanks again Robert !

I made a really dumb decision when I was in my teens, and had to carry the responsibility of that decision with me into my adult years. I was finally willing to move on with my life and needed some help to do so, so I looked for an attorney who had experience and understood that people don't need to be weighed down by their past. There were a few unexpected road blocks that got in our way, but all the i's were dotted and the t's crossed, and the end result was what I was looking for. I would much prefer a good outcome rather than a quick or rushed case, it was worth the time and trust I put in.

I retained the services of Robert Perez after working with a few other attorneys on my cases (yes, I had two cases going on at the same time and my situation was rather daunting back then!). With my previous attorney, I already had a "deal" (SOC) for my first case (gross misdemeanor), whereby I had to enter into a DV treatment program (which I completed successfully along with the other conditions, required in the SOC). Back then, I had no idea that a second case was coming up and this time, the charge was felony. I agreed on the SOC (Stipulated Order of Continuance), even though the case against me was very weak for the prosecution (of course, I had no idea about that as this was my first encounter with the system). After the second case started (I was still with my previous attorney, which I hired for this case initially as well), we came to a point where another deal was offered by the prosecution; but this time, I had to plead guilty (to a lesser charge). I started getting really worried about my future at this point; of course, I was not afraid of the actual sentence, but about that would happen after all this was over. And then, I realized that I needed a much more experienced lawyer – the one that can make a *real* difference for me. After evaluating multiple options, I decided to hire Robert (thanks god!).
From the very first moment, Robert started paying very close attention to my case, asking many questions and getting familiar with my situation. I immediately felt that I am in much better hands this time and if I had any chance for success, it would be with him. Unlike with the other attorneys, which I had spoken before with, this time there were no empty promises that everything would be “fine”; much more time was spent on the actual work on the case. After taking the time to familiarize himself with all the details, Robert created a plan of action. He organized official (recorded) interviews with all the witnesses on the case along with the prosecution. On these interviews (I has a chance to listen to the recordings) my new lawyer’s performance was amazing – for the first time, I really felt that there was a strong defense on my side. It was clear that the prosecution did not do any work to establish strong evidence against me; everything was based on statements that had not even been made by the witnesses (as it turned out later) in most parts. I really believe that these interviews showed very clearly that we were ready to go all the way; and now, we are capable to do so (thanks to Robert)! Soon, we were offered another “deal” – this time, the consequences were much less serious compared with the first one (where I had to plead guilty). I saw a light at the end of the tunnel; even if this would have been the end of my case, it’d be totally worth it getting this new lawyer! But this was not it – I gained much more confidence already and decided that I would be ready to go to trial with Robert, if needed; no more deals! So we rejected the offer that gave a very strong message to the prosecution that we were prepared to go forward. Robert explained to me in great details everything about the whole process from start to end, what would be expected from me, etc. I was ready! And then, just a few days before the trial the case was … DISMISSED!!! No deals, no conditions; NOTHING! UNBELIEVABLE!
Then, Robert took over my first case (SOC) and he drove this one to completion as well, even though it was not simple, as the prosecution was really convinced that I was guilty there. We had to appear in court multiple times and had some challenging moments. Eventually, though, everything ended with a dismissal a few months EARLIER than the original SOC term of 2 years! Again, thanks to Robert and his team!!!
All in all, I was extremely lucky to have Robert and his team on my side; I do not know where I would be now without their help!
MANY, MANY, MANY THANKS!

Hire THIS guy! The costs of the best defense possible cannot be weighed against a compromised defense where winning was not the objective of the attorney from the beginning. Mr. Perez will not compromise, giving the most thorough and best defense possible. Extremely knowledgeable and competent. You will sleep better knowing Robert Perez has got your back. His persona exudes professionalism and he has all the credentials to back it. He is a defense attorney's defense attorney......and you can't argue with a degree from Harvard Law School. His fees are just for what he delivers, and when the quality of your future life is on the line you don't want to attorney shop.....the legal justice system is a factory and you can get eaten up and unnecessarily hurt by inadequate or ineffectual representation.....if you have to enter into it then be armed the best you can. Sadly the justice one generally gets will be in proportion to the quality of their representation to oppose the prosecution. Experience will always trump the games a prosecutor will try to employ. In his broad experience Robert Perez paints with ALL the colors and knows all the shades and nuances of what constitutes a successful defense. Where prosecutor's are to be held accountable for their accusations and judgements made against you, where too often the real casualty is TRUTH, and where too often they do not play by the rules, then the best voice you can have is that of seasoned defense attorney who does not, by personal conviction and belief in what his job is, hold back. Mr. Robert Perez is this guy and I heartily refer him to any and all. After your initial consultation and with follow ups if necessary, you will also be a believer in him. No need to waste your time looking elsewhere.

Mr. Robert Perez and the Perez Law Team represented my brother in a criminal case. My brother could have faced years in jail if found guilty! We as a family were all afraid for him. After having to fire my brother's first defense attorney for good and justifiable reasons and then having to go through a long and enduring process of interviewing many high profile attorneys in-state and out-of-state we finally wittled it down to one and went with the Perez Law Firm. We were in search of the best of the best!! After, we as a family, interviewed and consulted with Mr. Robert Perez, we knew he was the one!! We were very happy we hired him in the end for Robert and his law team went aggressively against the state, who was charging my brother, and we WON!! This is probably the first in a sexual assault charge for a jury to have ever decided and reached a "No Guilty" verdict in 7 minutes time in all of history after the closing arguments were presented. This could be a record high and if I find out that it is I am going to report this event to the Guinese Book Of Records. In conclusion, if you want to win then choose Robert Perez and the Perez Law Team! They defend aggressively to win and will not take the alternative! Your life is in good hands with Robert Perez! I highly recommend Robert!! He is out there to win and will work tirelessly and aggressively for you to get there. Robert and his team are a "God-send". They promised and they delivered and they are awesome!! Honesty and the Facts are their best policy! Hire Robert Perez, you'll be glad you did!!
