Great at what he does
Bob stepped in when my attorney took ill and had to leave his practice. He was efficient and took time to make sure I understood the process and possible outcomes. He had my case all taken care of within a matter of months instead of dragging it out. He is very personable and yet very professional. I would recommend his to anyone having criminal charges.

THE BEST DEFENSE ATTORNEY AROUND!
Bob has bent over backwards to make sure that I had the best defense possible. This is an attorney who genuinely cares about his clients and their well-being. He’s very responsive to emails and phone calls, and makes sure that his clients understand the nature of the alleged crimes committed. He’s a fighter, and the only attorney I’ll call if I’m ever in a bind. (Never again) Another thing: His secretaries are so proficient, friendly and fast paced.

Drug trafficking charges
Before hiring Bob, I had actually looked him up right here on aavo.com, along with several other and had read all of their reviews. As my case got closer, I was talking to a good friend who, several years ago, got accused of some pretty serious offenses. He highly recommended Bob to me, explained, in detail, the charges, his story, and how Bob dealt with it. My friend went to trial and was aquitted. This first hand account was all the validation I needed on top of all his great reviews. In my case, I was afraid of going to trial. An ongoing case with others who were under investigation may have strengthen their case. I had to get this over quickly. There was a lot circumstantial evidence...and a gun I had no idea was in my home. The DEA was not exactly honest in their evidence. But they did have, in my opinion, enough to get a posession charge. I was lucky, as a convicted felon, not to get charged with the gun. Bob gave me some great advice, and I honestly did not see how he handled it. I was late getting to court. He said not to worry, he handled it and told me to have a seat outside the room. A few minutes later he and I went into a side room, he explained to me my options as to what the ada was asking for a ssntence. She asked for 30 days and a year probation. That was exactly what I was praying to offer. But I had not yet given him the letters he asked me to get from some peopled I'd helped in the past as well as a letter about my life in general including highs, lows, treatments, addiction... On e again, he said go ahead and stay out here and relax. Twenty minutes later he comes out and says she reduced it to twenty days. Not only is Bob a great lawyer--he appeared to totally be the one in control in the courtroom, he was immediately very easy to talk to. So et me you meet a person that...you just know really cares. Bob is one of those people. My friend said ..."dude...He is a pit bull in that courtroom". Although I didnt set him in a tin in trial, but little I saw, it was obvious he was in complete cool of that entire roo. When he spoke, the room listened.until now, I never cared for lawyers too much. Bob charged that. If you nervous, scared, or anxious, don't be. Whatever your circumstances are, Bob will Find the very best resolution for you as possible.

The Lawyer you want to DEFEND you!
Mr. LeBrasseur has a strong understanding of the law and helped guide us in the right direction and was always helpful with answering everything we needed to know in regards to our case. He was able to get the case dismissed for me. He is the lawyer you want defending you!

Outstanding Council!
Robert was persistent and compassionate with me regarding my case. However, in the courtroom he was aggressive, persuasive, and in control at all times. I would highly recommend him for any case. Especially those that are criminal. He will be my lawyer for any future needs.

Domestic Violence Charge
I had been brought up on Domestic Violence and Domestic Criminal Threatening charges. Having never before been charged with anything, I really didn't know what to do. I was told I needed a good criminal defense attorney. I did a lot of searching, checking, and talking, and finally settling on going with Bob, I was not disappointed. From the very beginning, Bob kept me informed of what was going on, he was always available to speak, and if he was in court, he would get back to me in a timely fashion, he also would do the same on weekends, considering my work schedule. My future truly looked bleak, especially when it came to owning firearms again. The State was pushing hard for a conviction, with no sign of relenting. Bob was a true professional, in every step of the way. I felt comfortable with him as my attorney. What I thought would be over in a month or so, dragged on for 5 months. In the end, through Bob's hard work, coupled with his vast knowledge in this field, I plead to a criminal threatening charge, a misdemeanor, and I was able to get all of my firearms back. No jail time, no probation., no fines, no going to classes. Thanks to Bob's hard work, and his experience in criminal defense, I was able to walk away a very happy man. I strongly urge anyone, who is looking for a criminal defense attorney, to look no further than Robert LeBrasseur. He knows what he is doing, he has the background and experience in criminal defense to offer you the legal help you are searching for and need. If the need ever arises again, where I need legal counsel for criminal defense, I know exactly where to go.

NEED CRIMINAL DEFENSE IN MAINE? LOOK NO FURTHER THAN BOB!
When I approached Bob several weeks ago, I found myself in the midst of a hellacious nightmare! As a victim defendant, I was twice the victim - first the victim of abuse and then false accusations leading to my arrest. A month ago was the penultimate WORST week OF MY LIFE. In our exploratory discussions via phone, before retaining Bob, he exemplified qualities of empathy, professionalism and sound counsel stemming from experience in criminal defense as well as time spent in the past on the prosecutor side of things. Once retained, Bob worked quickly and diligently to ensure that the case be dismissed on the grounds that the accusation was unsubstantiated. Within JUST ONE WEEK, Bob was able to execute a dismissal. I was so relieved and will forever feel indebted to Bob for helping me chart the course to a dismissal. Bob was able to get the case dismissed the day before we were scheduled to go to court for the first time. I NEVER had to go to court for Bob to resolve this situation. If you are looking for a criminal defense attorney characterized as empathetic, smart, professional, experienced, prompt, responsive, personable, informative and knowledgeable - Bob is your guy! Having spent time as a prosecutor years ago as mentioned, Bob is keenly aware of both sides of the system and adeptly applies this knowledge to your case. It was one of the reasons why I elected to retain him after speaking with two other attorneys first. Again, I will always feel indebted to Bob for helping me respond to false claims arriving at dismissal. Thank you Bob. I will never forget what you did to defend my innocence!

Truely Cares About His Clients
I had a Juvenile matter with my daughter that could have effected her college applications. Bob took the time to explain to her that the choices she was making could follow her for a very long time. He was able to have the case dismissed with thirty hours of community service. I can not thank him enough.

Great attorney
I was charged with felony theft and attorney Lebrasseur was able to get my case dismissed by having me pay back the money I stole. I am very thankful for this. I like to hunt and a felony would stop my hunting.

DV Assault
I was charged with assaulting my spouse. I had no place to live when I bailed out. I contacted attorney LeBrasseur who contact my spouse and filed a motion for my return home. We were in court in about 4 days. He was able to convince the prosecutor to file my case at the hearing. I am very thankful for his hard work and immediate investigation of my case.

Best OUI Attorney there is
I was facing a second offense OUI. Attorney LeBrasseur explained to me the two processes I was facing. He walked me through each one reviewing the elements of the crimes and the proceedings. I wanted to accept the plea being offered but Attorney LeBrasseur explained to me my trial options and why he thought a trial was in my best interest considering the offer made. At trial he not only mesmerized me but the jurors as well. I am thankful for his hard work and the Not Guilty he obtained me.
