I had retained Rob Latham to represent my son in a criminal defense case. He met with us at our convenience in part due to the fact that we were from out of state and had limited time. Every advisement he suggested was a series of steps that led ultimately to a positive outcome for our case. I have taught business and personal law for 11 years and have had many attorneys speak to my classes. Having met only a couple that were as professional, thorough and knowledgeable as Rob he is in the rare class of attorney that is second to none and I would recommend him to anyone.

We hired Rob to help us resolve an issue concerning a traffic violation, the DMV and the resulting court dictated consequences including assessments, educational classes and probation. Rob assisted us on the same case in several court appearances as we worked with the court to clarify and finalize an acceptable resolution. His knowledge of the industry in which he works is exceptional, and he assisted us in making very difficult decisions by sharing his expertise so that we could arrive at an educated and balanced conclusion while taking into account the risks and the financial costs. Rob followed through with every single item that we needed and we believe that we could not have been represented in any better by anyone else.
Unfortunately for us we have had too many experiences to the contrary with other law practices in other cases. Rob is definitely the exception and not the rule.
We can always count on Rob to inform us in a timely manner of all developments and he never left us wondering what was happening. We wish that we knew someone like him in every aspect of legal counsel since he is very willing to acknowledge when our legal needs are not in his area of focus. We appreciate this because it lets us know that he means what he says, and even when he might lose work he thinks about what is best for the client. Rob exceeded our expectations as he creatively pursued possible solutions with third parties that could help our case. He was always open to our ideas and took time to address our questions and whatever concerns we might have.
Yes, we are "raving fans" of Atty J. Robert Latham and we would encourage anyone to seek his legal counsel and representation. You will not be disappointed with his attention to detail and his care of the client and their needs. I am happy to answer any questions in person if I can be of assistance.

I endorse Rob Latham as a criminal defense attorney of extraordinary ability and among the best work ethic I have ever witnessed. Rob is always meticulously prepared for every case, every hearing, and is also extremely proficient at juvenile law.
