Best Attorney In LA
1st Degree murder charges DROPPED to just a manslaughter charge with no enhancements! My husband was facing serious time 50+ Years to life in prison, but thanks to Eric we got less time than we anticipated which we are so grateful for. Eric gave me something no one else can give me, he gave me peace of mind & he gave my husband a second chance at life. Eric is very patient, and very kind he knows what he's doing, very humble and sweet and honestly super relatable. Bottom line, if you have someone you love who needs legal help, Eric is the best! My only regret is I didn't hire him sooner!! What I loved the most about Eric is his communication, he is very involved with his clients, very easy to talk to, he is very thorough with the cases he handles, another thing that stood out for me was his willingness to go visit my husband in jail, he actually takes the time to converse and get to the facts, he answered all of my husbands questions and made him feel confident with his case. I am forever indebted to Eric, I can't express my gratitude enough for him. I recommend Eric to all my friends and family. I am so grateful for Eric and everything he has done for my husband and my family.

Excellent Lawyer
I am truly grateful I hired Eric Renslo as my attorney. He went above and beyond on my 2nd DUI case and always kept me informed on everything during my case. I genuinely felt he cared for me as he pushed me and advised me on what steps I should take to get the best result in my situation. Communication was exceptional and always called to check in before and after court dates, making sure he was answering any questions or concerns I might have. If you are ever in need of a lawyer that genuinely cares about his clients I would choose Eric Renslo 100%

DUI case
I just wanted to take a moment to express my deepest gratitude to the one and only attorney Eric Renslo. He was absolutely amazing throughout my DUI case, providing me with expert guidance, support, and fighting for my best interests. I truly appreciate his dedication, hard work, and the hours he put into my case. Thanks to his expertise, words can’t even explain how grateful I am that I got my case dismissed. I am forever grateful for his commitment and the positive impact he had on my life. Thank you, attorney. P.S he really is the trial god.

Hit and Run
Eric was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was incredibly professional, efficient, and truly put my mind at ease. He was able to handle everything for me down to court appearances, so I never had to leave my home. And he was in constant communication so I was always in the loop on what was happening and what he was doing the whole time, and took the time to explain any and all questions that I had. I was charged with a hit and run, and assault with a deadly weapon. Eric was able to get assault charges dropped without losing my license or suspension. He got me all the way down to one year unmonitored probation, and 3 days of community service with low court fees. That is honestly unheard of and better than I could’ve hoped for. 10/10 I would highly recommend!

A1 attorney
I hired Attorney Eric Renslo due to domestic violence and potential credit card fraud with an ex partner. The situation was very, very messy, and it wasn’t as black-and-white as things seemed. I was potentially facing jail time and have been convicted of this alleged crime, I can’t tell you how SCARED I was. However, I hired Attorney , Renslo and he eased some of my fear. He’s very attentive and cares so much about his clients. Fast forward, everything was dismissed. I can’t tell you how relieved I am, he is literally an angel on earth and if you are thinking about hiring him as your criminal defense attorney don’t think anymore just hire him, he is the best. Thank you SO much <3

Robbery facing several felony charges. felony charges
Affordable, dependable, reliable Eric was great whatever you’re dealing with I would trust him to handle case for my mom! Facing jail time several felony charges. Mr. Renslo worked diligently. To get much more than I have prayed for or expected it case was reduced to a misdemeanor with community service, one year summary,a summary, probation, and a small court fee, when all I prayed for was no jail time I couldn't imagine the turn out. If you need a excellent attorney, I would highly recommend that you go with Eric he’s honest and trustworthy and will work as though you’re his only client hopefully I’ll never need him again but if I do, he’ll be the first one I call and definitely the first one I would recommend to anyone. I praise God and thank God for such a person as Eric Renslo.

Did someone say dependable?
Seeking a reliable and efficient attorney? So was I until I found Mr. Renslo! When it comes to the legal system, I’m getting in trouble with the law, it’s never a good feeling being in the unknown. Prior to me finding Eric Renslo, that’s exactly where I was, out of the loop with no idea of what was to happen next. It only took a simple phone call to know this was who I wanted to retain. His communication is on point, he knows what he’s doing in the criminal defense world, he is literally the most reliable and friendly Attorney I know to exist. I’ve never spoken highly of anyone the way I do have Eric Renslow. I even referred him to a friend who is now his client on a huge case and my friend is also just as satisfied if not more If I could give Eric 25 Stars he would have the rating in a heartbeat. I would like to end my review by saying, as long as I’m in California, and in need of a criminal defense lawyer, I will never seek anyone else. If he cannot handle your case, he sure to help point you in the right direction to someone that could but fortunately for me that was never the case. I love and appreciate Eric as if he were family. He exceeded my expectations and he stuck by my side over the course of a year. I’ve built and developed a relationship with someone I would have never expected. He is trial God for a reason! Thank you so much, Eric!

This is the guy!
I was facing a felony street racing, and speeds of over 100mph. Eric, was on it from the beginning. Ended up getting all charges fully dismissed without having to enter a plea. Eric is as professional as they come.

Amazing lawyer amazing results
I’m writing this honest review for Eric, as he helped me with my case for almost the last year. Ever since day one of meeting him his been very Professional and very transparent. I had a serious felony case out of Orange County ( one of the harshest counties to get into any legal issue) and unfortunately I’ve had priors as well but yet he fought very hard to get me The best deal possible. Eric managed to get me more than a “ good deal” he got me unheard of plea deal that the DA was very opposed to yet he pulled it through. Besides being very experienced legally, he shows up on time to every single court date which is something a lot of attorneys lack based on my personal experience, and he communicates with you and always answers calls and texts which is a huge plus. Over all I give him a 10/10 rating.

Great Attorney Experience
Most attorneys that I’ve dealt with were hard to reach or didn’t work on/care about my case. Definitely felt the difference when signing on with Eric. Great job! Case Dismissed. I’d strongly recommend him for anyone struggling with restraining orders and criminal defense.

Best Criminal Defense Lawyer in California
To start, if you’re reading this review you most likely are in some sort of legal trouble. I strongly urge you to get a lawyer as soon as possible. The criminal legal system is not designed to be easily navigated. There are so many levels and rules that a normal person just has no shot of navigating alone. I graduated from USC and can usually pick up on things relatively quickly, but it would have been close to impossible to fight my charges on my own. To put it in perspective, my case took two and a half years and consisted of 11 appearances that all had different arguments and strategies associated with them. There is a ton of opportunity to make mistakes so I strongly recommend you lawyer up because I promise, innocent or not, the system is not as fair as we would hope. For me, when selecting attorneys, I skimmed through about 40-50 and ranked them based on experience and what law schools they went to. Eric went to UCLA Law which is a top 5 law school in criminal defense. Insanely hard to get into, and it produces some of the best lawyers in the country. Some of the other lawyers I called went to Harvard, USC, and Yale but I ultimately decided to go with Eric because I could tell how invested in helping me he was out of the gate, by the questions he was asking, the suggestions he was making, and the overall meticulousness of the conversation. I was facing 7 years in state prison. It didn’t feel right or fair or even real, to be frank. But it is the reality of the current system and it was very real. Eric couldn’t have been a better guide through it all. I almost want to look up how many hours we talked on the phone over the 2.5 years of the case because we had constant phone calls that lasted for sometimes 2-3 hours. He put his all into ensuring I knew what was happening, and I understood how and why we were approaching the case. Since the deals we were offered we not great we decided moving to trial was the best move. I could write an essay about the trial experience but to keep it short, 4 witnesses showed up to testify against me, and the DA was extremely impressive in his own right. But Eric maintained control of the room and the narrative for the duration of the trial. Regardless of how well he did, it didn’t take the edge off when the decision was eventually submitted by the jury. All two and a half years, two felony charges, and a seven-year prison sentence all culminated to a single moment and I personally don’t have the vocabulary to truly describe the sense of monumental relief that was felt when the non-guilty verdict was announced for both felony charges. Genuinely a euphoric moment and I couldn’t have chosen a better lawyer to share it with. I couldn’t recommend anyone more than I recommend Eric if you are facing any serious criminal charges.

I am so grateful for Eric's treatment of my mothers case. Throughout the process he communicated with us. He was genuine and kind from the start to the very end. He ultimately got her case dismissed. I'm glad he took her as a client and even extended his services to her husband. He fought hard for them both and our family is so grateful for his time and care. The results speak to the fact that Eric knows his stuff and will deliver. Thank you so much Eric

Fearless Lawyer
Eric Renslo is by far the most professional, outstanding, kind, humble, respectful, aggressive and most of all patient Lawyer that any mother would expect a Lawyer to be. Our family was a facing a very dark road where it could have impacted our family of Life in prison to 25 years in prison, to 13 years in prison, to 9 years in prison, 6 years in prison, to finally sentenced to 3 years in prison. He went to another county, he faced new District Attorneys, New Judges and took the courage for him to do this for our family. He was loyal to our family, he was committed to our situation. He took my calls in the mornings, day time, evenings, and weekends. He drove for many hours to our destination with rain, shine, windy, hot or cold and never complained. He remained committed. He worked with us financially and he stuck to our agreement as we did to him. Eric Renslo is the criminal lawyer you want!!!! I cannot express how much I value him as a person and as a professional. He has become someone we began to love like family because he held my heart in his hands and he took care of it like it was his. He’s a very unique individual and for that I would highly recommend him to anyone that is in of a lawyer. Eric, may the lord keep blessing you for all the good that you do. On behalf of my family and I we all love you very much. Morayma

Eric Mayeda Renslo was a beacon of hope for my family at a time when our options appeared limited and the likelihood of a satisfactory resolution seemed nigh on impossible. Not only was he able to defend us from unjust accusation, his calm and empathetic demeanor offer emotional succor to myself and those I care about most. My son and I are eternally grateful for his service and I hereby recommend Mr. Renslo without reservation.

BEST LAWYER EVER
As a person who never got in trouble , finding Eric was a blessing. When it came to reassuring and meetings this man never misses a beat. He sticks to his words and literally takes every case personal. He gives you a game plan. He makes sure you feel comfortable before court and goes after each case like his life is on the line. He reassure you that as a team he’s going to do whatever it is to clear your name. Will most definitely refer him to anyone who needs a lawyer.

Criminal defense Attorney | Aug 26
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Mr. Renslo is very intelligent. I have personally seen him answer calls from clients at night just because he cares. He is a good communicator. He is highly ethical and abides by the rules of professional conduct. I recommend him for your criminal defense needs."
Criminal defense Attorney | Oct 30
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I first met Mr. Renso back when I was a criminal prosecutor in Los Angeles. I always had a profound respect for him because he was one of the select few of my colleagues that were eager to do jury trials--many attorneys are actually hesitant to do jury trials because of how arduous and stressful they can be. I worked on several matters with Mr. Renslo as opposing counsel when I became a criminal defense attorney. He is a very smart and resourceful attorney and is very skillful in jury trials. I am happy he switched over to the defense bar, where a person of his skill and desire to help people truly belongs. I wholeheartedly recommend him to anybody who needs a great advocate on their side."
Criminal defense Attorney | Oct 22
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I know Eric to be a sharp criminal defense attorney who really knows his way around the courtroom, which is particularly important for clients going to trial. I endorse this lawyer."
Criminal defense Attorney | Oct 06
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I knew Eric Renslo during my time as a prosecutor, and he is absolutely one of the best trial lawyers. Even after I left the prosecutor's office, Eric was always very fair and very easy to work with. I have no doubt that Eric will be a fantastic edition to the Criminal Defense Bar, and valuable resource for anyone facing criminal allegations. Eric also went to one of the top law schools in the nation, and you can tell by the quality of his work. HIGHLY ENDORSE!"
