I highly recommend Robert Ernenwein for your criminal defense needs. He is very professional, has decades of experience, and took care of our case in court without us even having to appear. We were sure that we couldn't win, but before I knew it, Robert called us with the good news, "case dismissed and closed". We couldn't have won without Robert Ernenwein's help. He's a terrific attorney and I highly recommend him.

Character, class, calculated, charm, and charisma are words that describe Robert. My case was not clean-cut and it didn’t begin as most might. Robert picked up where another lawyer had failed me (after a preliminary hearing), which is not an ideal place to pick-up a case from a defense perspective (something I’ve learned by going through the process, but it should be noted that it was something that Robert was comfortable with). Suffice it to say that during the process of the transition of my case, I had the opportunity to interview approximately 20 different lawyers in Los Angeles County, ranging from fear driven future prospects to over confident, over extending, and over promising sales pitches. But something was different from the first time I spoke with Robert, there was a quiet confidence and experienced demeanor that was quite unique from the others I had interviewed. While Robert will never promise an outcome, he has an interesting insight and perspective on the system, and an extensive network of connections inside the district attorney offices in Los Angeles County. I felt after the intense amount of searching for someone to put my life in the hands of; Robert was the guy. From the onset of Roberts’s involvement, the approach changed dramatically. In my case; I was most interested in mitigation to avoid going to trial. There are no text books on this matter, so having a lawyer that has both a long line of experience, as well as professional relationships inside the district attorney’s office is a huge plus. After reviewing who I am both personally and professionally, and the incident at length, Robert came up with a strategy to approach the DA from. I can say with honesty that at first I wasn’t 100% comfortable with the strategy that he presented, but I’m also smart enough to know what I don’t know (and that is the legal system). So I cast aside my initial reservations in regards to the plan, knowing that from the onset I had enough confidence to put my life in the hands of Robert, so we decided to proceed with his proposed plan. The process of scheduling court dates and appearances took longer than I had hoped, but results are really the only thing that matters, so hindsight 20/20 the timeline isn’t something that really matters (after all, we are dealing with the government, and unfortunately they don’t always work at the pace one would hope). One other thing to note; Robert is not a lawyer that will overextend himself in regards to having non-substantive phone conversations, expect conversations to be adequately timed to work through the facts and matters of the case and not a client’s feelings. He is results driven and a very busy guy, which in the beginning took some getting used to, as I wanted weekly updates (if not daily), but looking back, his systematic approach is a very efficient way to run a business. It should not be confused with his absolute focus on individual cases. I can also say that over the period of time my case was active (5 months), Robert became a true friend. I will conclude by saying that the outcome was better than I could have hoped for. Robert was able to get both (2) pending charges against me dropped (after a preliminary hearing) and reduced to a simple misdemeanor, in which if I complete requirements from the court the event in its entirety will be completely erased from my record by enrolling me in a pre-trial diversion program. I cannot thank Robert enough for his efforts, knowledge, and execution in my case. He is truly a life saver and a man I’ll never forget in my life. He gave me a second chance.

I highly recommend the offices of McGregor & Ernenwein for your legal matters. I was refereed by two colleagues who have also used their services and I was extremely pleased with the service that i received. Matt Rinaldi handled my case and I was very confident in his ability to get the result I wanted. He is extremely thorough in his approach, went above and beyond and is ready, willing and very able to go to bat for his clients. Matt and the offices of McGregor and Ernenwein were very responsive in all matters and always available via email or on their cell phones. I would recommend this law office above any other, having done a lot of research, and would most definitely use their services in the future, should i need to. Because of the actions of my lawyer my case was completely dismissed which was a much better result that I could have ever wished for.

On behalf of my wife and myself. I'd like to thank Mr. Robert Ernenwein and Matthew Rinaldi for their excellent work, their dedication to our case and the effort they provided us. I'd also like to thank the staff at McGregor & Ernenwein, LLP.
We had a criminal case and we are very fortunate to have been referred to McGregor & Ernenwein. From the moment we met Mr. Ernenwein, my wife and I both had a good feeling about him. He was professional, direct and very clear on what he could do for us. He never promised us what the outcome would be. He was very confident and assured us that he would do his best to get us a favorable decision. We were kept well informed throughout the process of all court proceedings and always had a line of communication open for us if we had any questions or concerns.
Our case was recently resolved after several court appearances and conferencing with the District Attorney's Office. We were blessed to get a case dismissal and my wife and I are extremely grateful to Mr. Ernenwein and all of the staff. Thanks to them we can move on with our lives in a positive direction. We would highly recommend McGregor & Ernenwein, LLP. to anyone who needs quality legal representation.

Robert Ernenwein is a JOY to have as your lawyer!
Under his guidance, I received the best possible outcome in my case. I even enjoyed paying him, which is saying a lot.!! He made me a great deal, drew up a fantastic gameplan all the way through the results and probationary period, and represented me everytime in court. I never needed to show up because he was so professional and completely respected.
Robert asks you to call him by his first name, and is a personable and friendly guy who talks sports/current events as much as the law. He seems to really like you as a person, so this whole experience is made as easy and less stressfull as possible. He is a very down-to-earth guy with no attitude or arrogance, as one might expect from a lawyer of his caliber and experience.
I highly recommend Robert Ernenwein for you to hire when you need a lawer. His office will treat you right with fantastic service, and a comfortable atmosphere in central torrance, close to the courthouse.
Thanks Robert and staff!

A few months ago, I lived the scariest day of my life. I was arrested for a crime that could have made me a felon for life and sent me to prison. I was sure my career, my reputation, my life... would be utterly destroyed - that is, until I was blessed with the privilege of meeting and hiring criminal defense attorney, Robert Ernenwein.
I did something stupid and out of character. My original lawyer suggested I was almost certainly going to receive a lengthy jail sentence and a permanent felony on my record. Desperate, my family and I began looking for a criminal lawyer. We were referred to Robert Ernenwein. Hiring Mr. Ernenwein to represent me and handle my case was the wisest decision I could have made.
In a word, Robert Ernenwein and his representation was superb. He is a perfect balance of professionalism and legal excellence balanced with compassion and honesty. His knowledge of the law and its application to a legal defense is excellent. If all defense attorneys were like Mr. Ernenwien, jails, corrections facilities and prisons would not be as crowded.
What impressed my family and I the most is the fact that he, unlike many lawyers, believed in me, got to know me and my family and became truly our friend and ally. He fought for me like I was family. Bottom line; no jail, my charges reduced and I am set up to have my felony reduced to a misdemeanor and ultimately dismissed.
Lawyers can be criticized. But it is lawyers like Robert Ernenwein and his extraordinary team that should give faith to the public that being a lawyer can mean making a huge difference; an incredibly positive difference in someone's life. I am writing this from the comfort of my home with my wife and children here with me. I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for Robert. I could say more, but I will end simply with THANK YOU!

Charged with a felony DUI with mandatory 1 year in prison
Result: Misdemeanor Conviction with no prison.
Violated probationary terms for the 1st time and bench warrant issued-outstanding for 5 years
Result: 40 hours community labor with no jail time and reinstatement into SB38 DUI Program.
Violated probationary terms for the 2nd time and bench warrant issued outstanding for 1 year
Result: Motion filed - bench warrant recalled - matter settled - case closed with no probation.
It's not that Mr. Ernenwein somehow magically circumvents the law, but rather that he knows it so well and has so much experience that I received the fairest possible outcome to my case and he provided me the most life-changing legal service that one could ever hope for.
Robert Ernenwein, Esq. is a person that cares deeply about improving good people's lives as evidenced by his empathy, expertise, professionalism and his commitment to his clients.
Everyone in my family including myself would refer Mr. Ernenwein for any and all criminal matters. My Father is a financial attorney and has referred Mr. Ernenwein to his clients and my Uncle carries around his business card in the off chance he might run into somebody that needs an attorney.
Mr. Ernenwein's services have had a profoundly positive impact on my life and I am very fortunate to have had him in my corner.

I hired The Law Offices of McGregor and Ernenwein over the last 10 months, and was represented specifically by Mr. Robert Ernenwein and Mr. Matt Rinaldi. Mr. Ernenwein and his team were a godsend. They took my case and were able to negotiate and outcome that completely exceeded my expectations. Although I hope to never need their services again, I can rest easy knowing that if I did, or someone I knew needed their help, they are only a phone call away. Thanks Robert!
