"I was charged with an OWI in December with a high BAC and faced severe consequences at work. I consulted multiple attorneys before I decided on Mr. Blumenfield. From the start, Mr. Blumenfield was a passionate advocate on my behalf in both court and work matters. He went out of his way to learn about me and my situation. Mr. Blumenfield is also quick with a response, in working hours or later. He advised me on a course of counseling, classes and volunteer work that impressed the court. In the end, Attorney Blumenfield was able to convince the court not to impose an IID order on me, a result that likely saved my career. I cannot advocate enough the work that Mr. Blumenfield has done on my behalf. He really made a difference in my life, and there is no way I can ever thank him enough. I highly recommend that anyone who is going through a similar dire and stressful situation make sure they have Attorney Blumenfield on their side."

I retained Charles Blumenfield on my behalf to represent me in a criminal case. Charles worked day and night to defend my innocence. He was aggressive, passionate and diligent in every aspect of the case. Charles assembled a great defensive team that looked into every detail of the case. He left no stone unturned.
Charles kept in contact with me on a daily basis and also kept my family informed. He showed sincere concern and compassion for my personal well being and my family's as well. Charles is not only a great lawyer but I consider him a life saver.
If you need a lawyer for criminal defense I would highly recommend Charles Blumenfield. Thank you for giving me my life back.

Thanks to Charles B. and his team. Although they don't deal with my legal concerns, they were very polite and informative, ultimately referring me to an agency that did deal with my particular type of case. Most firms won't call you back after in-take, even if they already know they can't take your case. Big thumbs up! Thanks for your professionalism. It speaks volumes.

I have never been disappointed by the representation Attorney Blumenfield has provided the many clients I have referred to him over the years. Beyond personal injury, Attorney Blumenfield has skillfully and creatively advocated for his clients in the areas of criminal defense, employment law and more, all with dedication and determination.

While Chuck's experience speaks for itself, there is nothing he can't help you with. Chuck is not only one of the finest attorneys I know, he is an incredible person. He is always willing to help no matter what the issue is, and if he doesn't know the answer (rarely happens) he will make sure you speak to someone who does know. I highly endorse Attorney Blumenfield. Anyone would be incredibly lucky to have him as their lawyer.
