Brady violation
Gary and Robert explained it to me and I understand it now. I was charged with my 3rd dui and unfortunately it was bad. (I finished my 28 day Inpatient program Robert found for me and Gary’s old client Marc has been my AA sponsor for 4 months!) Anyway, Gary got discovery from the district attorney and it said there was video. Gary requested the video which never came. They sent a letter to the judge telling him to order the video. On the court date the judge rescheduled my case but told the district attorney they had to give my lawyers the video. So, yesterday we had our court date and the district attorney said there was no video. So Brady violation means that the district attorney has to turn over anything that shows my innocence. I remember that the the other driver came into my lane. And Gary told the judge that the video existed but that the district attorney saying he couldn’t find it wasn’t good enough because Gary didn’t have the opportunity to try and track the video down himself. The police report said there was video. It was just lost. Gary has had this happen before and was able to get it before. The judge said that the district attorney couldn’t use any evidence that the video would show. I had my trial and Gary kept objecting. I won when the district attorney finished her case. Anyway, I thank Gary, Robert and Brady. Less This review is from a person who hired this attorney. Hired attorney

Awesome Lawyer
I strongly recommend Robert as the best attorney in the world. All my charges were dropped! I met with another lawyer and he told me that I was going to have a felony record which made feel like my situation was hopeless. But a friend of my uncle told me to call Gerstenfield and Demirji and talk to Robert. I did and Robert spent a lot of time looking over my case with me. Robert saw the case totally different from the first lawyer. He was very supportive and told me that I did have a good chance of beating the charges or at least the felony ones. The case yook a while and the whole time they kept me up to date. If you call Robert, either he or his paralegal or his partner get back to you right away. And my Christmas gift is that Robert got the charges dismissed. My advice is DON'T GO ANYWHERE ELSE!

Amazing attorney
I hired Robert to represent me in a criminal case. He more than exceeded my expectations! His social IQ is very high and he knew how to speak with the judge to let me off easy. Extremely happy with him and if I ever get in trouble again, he will be my first and only call.

Excellent attorney
I’m from NY and have no knowledge about the Maryland court system. I contacted a few lawyers in the area via telephone but felt most comfortable with working with this team. When I contacted Gary to assist me he assured me that everything would be ok. Before making my final decision on which attorney I wanted to work with I contacted the office again and shared my concerns with Robert and he immediately looked into my case and assured me that it was not as bad as I thought and immediately put my worries at ease. It was very challenging for me living in NY but Robert executed and delivered the results he promised. I’m very grateful for his his services.

3rd DUI and Walked out of Court!
AA and my sponsor along with love and support of family and I’m 134days sober & counting. Oh, and I didn’t go to jail even tho it’s my 3rd DUI. Robert, Gary and Iris were amazing. I talked to more than 5 lawyers, all good but when I met Robert & Gary I found what I was looking for. I needed help not jail. Some crazy argument about chain of custody and the case against me fell apart. I am blessed. This is my way of passing it on.

Highly Effective
Gary and Rob took my case and gave the best defense I could ask for. Robert conducted in-depth research and prepared the best case for my defense. Gary then came to the courtroom on the day of the trial with his charisma on full display and got my charges dropped in full. A true team effort and a job well done.

Thank you Robert
Robert helped me get my dui case dropped. I did great on the filed tests but the officer arrested me anyway. I felt I was being set up and refused the breath test. Two other lawyers told me that my case was hopeless. I'm glad I went to Robert. He believed me and fought for me. In the end, he got my case dropped.

DUI and DWI
Robert represented me on a numerous traffic violation (DUI and DWI). He is an excellent lawyer and he was able to get me PBJ. I am very satisfied with the job that he did. I had a numerous minors (children) in my car when I got my DUI and DWI. I was very worried, but with his smart points and reasons, he was able to convince the judge that it wasn't my fault. If you need strong lawyer, he is the perfect match for you. Thank you Robert for your excellent works.

Exceptional Lawyer
I hired the Gerstenfield Law Office for defense on two cases for the same incident. Robert represented me in both. He was patient with me, explained everything fully and made me feel "he had my back" at all times. The first case went extremely well, with no jail time!!!! The second case was a bit out of the ordinary but Robert's professionalism and his manner of speaking and explaining the facts with all involved got all the charges dismissed!!! I am forever grateful! Thank You Robert!!!!

Thank you!
Robert showed up for me on time and well-prepared twice (got a continuance in January and had to return in March). He displayed a genuine concern and I felt heard and taken care of; the outcome of my March date was definitely ideal. I received the best possible outcome due to Robert and his connections, articulation in the court room, and persistence in ensuring that I came out satisfied. Needless to say, I am very satisfied with Robert's council and would absolutely recommend him to others!

Thanks Robert!
Good Afternoon Everyone, I recently had a sleuth of charges this past year that were quite serious that could have affected my ability to work and my freedom. I hired Robert and Gary to oversee my case. On my court date Robert gracefully explained all of our options and made sure my expectations were clear. Robert proceeded to argue for a (probation before judgement) for me and the judge and prosecutor concurred with his advocacy. If you're in a tight spot like I was with your first alleged offense please feel free to reach out to Robert. Undoubtedly he is a very tactful and poised lawyer that you would be lucky to have on your side. Regards

DUI and other case
Hello to all that are reviewing Robert. All I can say is that Robert is an amazing attorney with super skills. Robert represented me on two cases. Other attorneys I interviewed gave me little hope and they seemed to struggle with my situation. When I met Robert he was confident, cool and secure about what needed to be done. When we went to court I felt protected especially when he fought for me like I was family. The case was dropper. The DUI case he was able to get PBJ and all went smooth. Robert is a super attorney and if you are in trouble hire Robert for the best advice and best defense.

HAPPY TO HAVE HIRED MR. ROBER
Words cannot describe how happy I am to have hired Mr. Robert. I was faced with about 10 false charges from a vindictive ex. Accusations ranging from kidnapping, rape, destruction of property, YOU NAME IT! I thought my life was over. Robert was very professional, helpful and knowledgeable. He was able to get all of the charges dismissed and had the ex admit her lies on paper. All for a very reasonable price! I would definitely recommend him to anyone in need of legal help.

Not Guilty!
Robert Demirji took my case and gave me the best legal representation possible. Robert picked the prosecution's case apart and showed how much of a liar my false accuser was. When the judge read "Not guilty", the policeman in the courtroom approached me and told me they knew I wasn't guilty. Thank you Gary and Robert for your time and expertise. Now I can finally get on with my life.

Excellent lawyer
Mr. Robert Dimirji is an excellent lawyer, he did a great job in my case. I'm very satisfied with the job that he did, he was on time on court. It just took a very clever idea of him for the judge to dismiss my case. I highly recommend him as a DUI lawyer. Thank you very much Robert!

Thank You Robert!
I was charged with a DUI and possession of drugs! I had to pay a bond to get out of jail which took 3 of the worst days of my life. I was very scared I might get convicted and go back to jail. Robert is an awesome layer. He is very easy to talk to and understood my fear factor. He went a long way to get my head in a better place. I still don't understand the legal stuff he did. But he was able to keep out all the evidence after the traffic stop with a motion. It totally worked and the charges were dropped!

Robert gave me another chance!
Robert gave me another chance to live. I would have been jobless, with a record(stigma), jail or even repatriated. Since from the day i received my court letter, I thought my world would come to an end. I would cry my eyes out. Robert told me it will be alright. Robert is very consoling, Robert said "no jail, i can assure you" i felt relieved though I didn't believe it till when the Judge told me he agreed with my lawyer to do a community service, The judge granted my lawyer's request just like that? I was like wooww!! I can write a book here to tell you how wonder and awesome it was to have you as my lawyer, you saved my life in America. You were always there when i called, even after office hours. The promises i made to you after your Thank you Robert for helping me make my charges go away! You and Gary are the best and I am very thankful. More grace to the Law offices of Gary H. Gertenfield.
