Near the beginning of 2015 I was falsely accused of a serious crime that threatened to ruin my reputation and greatly limit my freedom for life. When it first happened I hired a law firm that specialized in that type of crime and after putting down a large portion of my life savings, I thought that I had made a wise decision.
The lawyer assigned to me was young and did not seem very enthusiastic about his work. Rather than work on a defense for me he referred me to specialists to pay more money for information that we would submit to the district attorney in hopes to compel them to take it easy on me. After spending thousands more on these services and getting nowhere with the DA, I was broke and heading to trial with a lawyer I couldn't trust... if I made another hefty deposit.
Stuck in a bad spot, a friend of mine referred me to a lawyer who had helped him in a DUI case. It was Rob Bernhardt. After meeting him, I felt reinvigorated. I knew I was innocent and I had a lawyer I knew was going to battle with me. Rob gave me confidence and hope when no one else could.
After making attempts to get somewhere with the DA, it was clear we would have to take them to court and win. With class and intellect, Bernhardt exposed the "witnesses'" and accuser's lies. He took on the prosecution's attempts to smear me. He rightfully proved to the jury that I was an innocent man. And in the end, I was acquitted. My life that was almost destroyed by a vindictive person and an overzealous district attorney was restored. My reputation saved.
I cannot ever thank Robert Bernhardt enough for helping me in a time of dire straits and for doing so at a price I could afford. I recommend him to everyone who needs a lawyer and have referred multiple people to him. I would hire him again in a heartbeat.

I got into a difficult situation when I was under the legal drinking age involving many different variables. Robert made me feel very comfortable in his office and was imidietly caring yet professional. He took my case seriously and made me feel the most at ease at my court case as possible. I got off with the least amount of repercussions possible, having to take only one class to learn from my actions. I would highly recommend Robert Bernhardt to anyone.

I retained Mr. Bernhardt for a DUI charge. I found Mr. Bernhardt and his office to be extremely professional and efficient. Being my first DUI, I was very nervous, but Mr. Bernhardt made me feel at ease. He always stayed on top of everything regarding me case, and has continued to help me. Robert Bernhart is a personable and knowledgable lawyer. I will/do recommend him to anyone who needs a defense attorney.

I had three separate drug charges in two separate counties and looking at slot of time. He ended up getting me four years when everyone else told me twelve to twenty four. I owe him my life. If you want someone who has amazing court presence. And recommend him to all

I retained mr bernhardt for a custody case, which he failed horribly to represent. he failed to respond to the courts, to myself, and to opposing council throughout the entire case. in addition, due to his poor job, this went for over two years for a parenting time change. the original case was delayed over and over due to his negligence in responding to anything from the courts in a timely matter. over the course of this case, my ex-spouse also filled a child support modification, which of course mr bernhardt did not even respond to, show up the hearing, or even notify myself. i was informed of a garnishment from my ex. over the next three to four months, mr bernhardt constantly would tell me that he was working on it, and that the extra 1500 a month i was being garnished would be reimbursed when we finally went into court. child support was not even raised, and he was admonished by the court again for his lack of action in providing any required forms and paperwork. after that worthless hearing, i immedialty hired new counsel.my new attorney promtly informed me that due to mr bernhardt not responding, and also not filing any paperwork, my appeal hopes were over. due to his actions, my ex was given 20k that she should not have recieved, and that i am unable to rectify. we also filed a grievance with the office of attorney regulation, and his license to practice law was (and currently is) suspended.

I retained Robert Bernhardt for a DUI charge that I received late last year. His communication is very poor both from his office and him personally. I was never communicated to about where my case stood or what his plan was. He incorrectly informed me of paperwork processes that cost me an extra month of driving privileges. I was offered a plea bargain from the DA that he never informed me of. When I first addressed my concerns about these things he became very aggressive. He appeared at two hearings on my behalf which amounted to less than an hour total. After deciding to go with another attorney and informing him that I would do so, he told me my retainer had expired.
