Excellence
Mr. Brenner was retained on my son’s criminal matter and he did an excellent job that resulted in a “non-filing” by the prosecutor’s office. He was hired early in the process which made the difference. I am grateful for his hard work and professionalism. Very responsive!

Fights for his clients
I had the misfortune to need an attorney for my son. Greg was recommended by a friend of a friend. It can be intimidating to need an attorney for anything let alone something that might end up with jail time. Greg was there all the way. Responsive when he didn’t need to be and truly cared. I cannot say enough good things about Greg. He was instrumental in the outcome of what could have been a horrible situation.

Smart, kind, listens. You really want this man to represent you.
Greg represented my family member on an issue that might have been construed as hit and run. He managed to take charge, arrange very kind terms, and turned a major anxiety into relief. Couldn't recommend him more highly.

Thanks Greg
Greg is outstanding and supportive throughout the process of my case. His work, rapport, and collaboration with the opposing side was able to help me through a better outcome than I hoped for. His advocacy and support helped to de-stigmatize some of the issues I personally deal with from a mental health standpoint. It was really difficult for me to relieve some anxiety at times but he was reassuring. My case might would have ended in worse if he had not helped me. I would have lost a lot of things that I'd been working so hard at accomplishing, but he advocated on my behalf to ensure that I could advance in my journey towards achieving those goals. I was facing a lot of challenges due to some of my past history. He helped me obtain a future dismissal on one of my cases. He always followed up, even when I didn't expect it; even when I was in the psychiatric hospital for stabilization at one point. He responded via calling, email, and text; and didn't leave me hanging. I would recommend Greg to someone else.

Exceptional Service and Case Dismissed!
I received a public intoxication citation and wasn't sure what to do until I contacted Greg. He walked me through everything and while we were discussing my defense, I felt comfortable with Greg based on his experience, expertise and the relationships he has formed over his esteemed career. As they say, "It doesn't matter what you know, it's who you know," and Greg proved he is not only extremely knowledgeable, he also knows the right people within the judicial system to fight and win the cases he works on. While I hope to never have another time where I need a criminal defense attorney, I know that if I do find myself in that situation, I have an attorney who will do what he needs to do for the best outcome. Thank you, Greg! You made a scary situation that much more tolerable and now my case has been dismissed. Much appreciated!

Brenner is a life saver!
Greg represented my teenage daughter and I am so glad I went with him. The other attorneys I spoke to had my daughter terrified. They focused on worst case scenario. Greg was calming and confident. His guidance and representation got us the best result possible. He is very knowledgeable and well connected in the LA criminal court system.

Gregory David Brenner...Gives lawyers a great name
I had never been in legal system before.... It's a awful feeling. Mr Breener made me feel, better about my self and the system. He was always quick to respond. Which is so important when you feel like your life may never be the same. He guided me though a very hard time on my life. When people talk bad,about lawyers....I don't have that feeling. I had an employee who also had some issues years later...he gave very sound advice to that individual. NO Charge. This lawyer has got Krama..all good. I was very lucky...and honored to repensented by Mr Brenner. If your looking for a representation...stop looking...you have found your man. Rest assured you are in great hands.

Great Lawyer
I was concerned, anxious, and scared when I was put into contact with Greg. I found him to be extremely helpful and was incredibly good at being accessible and keeping me informed. I definitely recommend Greg.

Extremely Satisfied Customer
When I met Greg, he understood me and new what I was going thru. He made me feel comfortable and I knew he would fight for me since the beginning. I have a felony already and I was facing a second one on a domestic violence case. He knew exactly what he was doing. I was facing 4 years prison time, and he got me NO jail time, and NO felony either. I did have to do many classes, and pay a few fines, but he fought for me all the way. I also just called him on a separate case and he took care of it right away. He did everything for me and I didn't even have to talk to anyone. He just asked a few questions and that was it. Their are no words to say how thankful I am for what he did for me and my family. As a matter of fact I consider him part of my family now.

Exactly what you'd want in an attorney
Gregory Brenner is smart, personable, competent, and compassionate. He recently helped clear up a rather complicated and messy legal problem for my family. He was effective, responsible, and followed up of his own accord. Always on top of it. Couldn't have been in better hands.

Amazing Attorney
Mr. Brenner proved himself to be an extremely Competent, honest, compassionate, determined, and hard working..... Sets himself apart from others in his profession! So pleased with his representation of my brother in a very difficult case! We would definitely retain him again and refer him to others!

Pretty damn good lawyer.
Mr. Brenner was great right from the beginning. Was always explaining things to me as we were proceeding with things. DA offered 120 days and I ended up serving just 30. Very attentive and quick to respond to questions. Highly recommend.
Posted by Chris | April 30, 2015
Great guy great lawyer
Mr Brenner clearly went above and beyond to help me with my case and with my life. My family and I are so appreciative for what he has done for me. He's a confident smart man and he's funny too. I hope I don't ever have to call him again but if I do need a lawyer for anything he'd for sure be the first person I call.........he'd be the one call I would make if that's all they gave me.

Best representation when I needed it.
Greg Brenner is a very knowledgeable, experienced and professional lawyer. There was a bogus charge against me, but thanks to his great representation, Greg was able to get a no file. While I was going through this stressful time, Greg was in constant communication with me, patiently answering every question I had about the whole process. I wouldn't hesitate to retain him again if needed, or to recommend him to a friend in need of a criminal lawyer.

If you want the best, look no further
I have been fa client of Mr. Brenner for over 10 years. He has helped me with all types of problems and situation. He also explained in detail the sentencing and ramifications. Within seconds, he responded to my calls. He met me at all the courts alwa;ys on time. fHe knows the judges in all parts of Los Angeles and Counties as well as the San Fernando Valley. He is a very dear and sensitive as well as understanding person. I never felt judged or demeaned in his presence. I am always proud with his representation. He is a proud family man, and a religious individual.
