Robert and his firm appreciate the technical crossover issues domestic violence allegations create in divorce and criminal matters. Typical plea bargains by most public defenders can create presumptions in divorce proceedings which can prevent a person from receiving spousal support or custody of their children. As a divorce lawyer I know that when I work with Robert the matter will be handled carefully and expertly.

When I was a District Attorney, I referred all potential criminal defendants to Mr. Ernenwein--even my own friends and family members. Now as a practicing criminal defense lawyer, I look to him for guidance and expertise as he knows just about everything in the book. He is a great lawyer, and even greater person. You cannot go wrong with Robert as your lawyer, as your co-counsel, or even as your adversary.
