About Robert

Learn Robert’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Immigration
    I have represented thousands of clients in Immigration cases ranging from simple adjustment to complex and protracted Federal Court litigation. I have numerous published decisions. Because of my familiarity with criminal law and criminal issues, I have an unparalleled track record in the successful representation of criminal aliens. Because of my background in criminal law, I have solved many immigration cases by attacking convictions in the criminal courts.

    32 years

  2. Criminal defense
    I have never backed away from a jury trial and have a long track record of full acquittals before juries. I have handled every time of criminal case, except I do not accept murder cases. Because of my experience as an immigration attorney, I am uniquely suited to crafting "immigration safe" resolutions to criminal problems and am often consulted by other criminal attorneys when immigration consequences are a concern.

    32 years

  3. Ethics and professional responsibility

    32 years

I have been practicing law since 1990 and LOVE cases that other attorneys have called impossible. Most of my practice involves immigration cases that have a criminal aspect and criminal cases that have an immigration aspect.


There is a terrible misconception that aliens with crimes cannot win their cases. This couldn't be further from the truth. However, winning immigration cases when there are crimes involved requires an in depth understanding of both criminal and immigration law.


Even if you've already lost your case and you've been told there's nothing more that can be done, visit us for a second opinion.

The Best Lawyer you can retain
Mr. Berke is the best lawyer a fellow attorney can consult and retain when facing with any type of discipline before the Bar. Is knowledgeable, kind, sincere, honest, respectful, always attentive to what his client has to say, does all he can to represent you to a point that makes you feel you are not a client, but a person he knows and cares for what you are facing. I will recommend this lawyer with my blind eyes and what it impressed me the most is the respect that he gives to his clients and the way he really loves what he do and does all to prepare and provide the best service a lawyer can provide to his clients. I am so grateful to say Mr. Berke was there to assist me when I needed the expertise and reassurance of a good if not to say the "best in his field" attorney.

I'm grateful to God for Robert! With his expertise, every opened door has and will be professionally fully exploited in my favor
Excellent Lawyer!! I've fought a Final Order of Deportation for many years, Robert Berke has always against all odds been able to figure out a new Legal strategy to prolong my stay and improve my chances of beating the case. When everything seemed to be over, Robert through many many court appearances and persistence, accomplished to VACATE the toughest obstacle, a felony conviction from before I changed my life around which was the reason my INS case was open, He has greatly improved the probabilities for my last Motion to Reopen and beating my case. ICE sent me a NOTICE TO OBLIGOR TO DELIVER ALIEN, Robert has been there also next to me, pleading my case and once again when everything seems lost, Edith, one of Robert's young blood TOP-NOTCH partners went way out of her way to personally visit my ICE officer and prolong my stay in the US, Edith has given my case a breath of fresh air and I'm confident that with God's Grace and Robert's team's expertise, responsibility and compassion I will beat this case. I wouldn't partially or in any way expose my case anywhere if it was not to show how eternally GRATEFUL I am to them and help and assure anybody out there struggling with a similar criminal or INS case, the good fighting chance you can find in this team.

The best lawyer in Los Angeles
He has been my attorney since 2005 and if it weren't for him I would probably be in prison. Trouble seems to follow me and he has always been there to help me out. He is not the cheapest attorney, but he is worth every penny. He also gave me payment plans.

Robert G. Berke, an truly outstanding lawyer!
Robert Berke was my lawyer in Los Angeles. He represented me when I had got myself in serious legal difficulties on three different occasions. These were criminal felonies. His brilliant handling of my cases resulted in the charges all eventually being dropped. Further, his clear, firm and constructive advice helped motivate me me to deal with my problem of substance abuse. He quite simply, in several ways, saved my life. I cannot praise him him as an attorney and as a person enough. To my mind, he is a miracle worker. He also represented several friends of mine that faced serious immigration problems and produced outstanding results for them as well.
