Can Highly reccomend from Criminal Defense
When your kid is out of town and uses poor judgment to pick up a criminal case, its certainly a tough time. You cant easily meet with criminal defense attorneys because I was out of the local area and needed representation for my kid fast. There are so many criminal defense lawyers in Los Angeles that it was over whelming to figure out who to trust. I was so pleased that I found Peter Berlin. He was so reassuring, pleasant and diligent and lived up to the representation and advice promises. Can whole heartedly recommend if you or a loved one needs a Los Angeles based criminal defense DUI attorney.

Excellent Legal Advice & Counsel
After searching for Los Angeles Criminal Lawyers and Los Angeles DUI Lawyers on the net, I am sure glad I found Mr. Berlin and his law firm. The biggest thing I was pleased with, above and beyond their expertise and knowledge, was the attention to detail and client communication. I was afraid that I would be promised the world, but then wouldn't be able to reach anyone with questions and information. That seemed to be a common complaint of many people going with some other lawyers. As mentioned by others, Mr. Berlin was accessible and would promptly reply to my inquires. I was very satisfied with the quality of service and communication.

Excellent Service, Communication and Representation
I hope that no one needs to retain an attorney to represent their teenager. Not only is that a scary and worrisome time, but sometimes you really don’t know how much you will need a good lawyer unless you have been falsely accused. My mind was racing, yet it became that much easier to understand the process when Mr. Berlin explained what was going on, what needed to be done and how to handle the case at such an early stage. He was polite and professional with both me and my teenager and confident in the approach that he set forth. It took time (wheels of justice turn slow as I found out) and effort, kept us aware of the status and ultimately charges were not pursued at all. I couldn’t have been happier with the time, effort and result. I would indeed highly recommend Mr. Berlin as an excellent criminal defense lawyer.

Great Attorney - Great Results and Communication
Mr. Berlin is a criminal defense lawyer that I can highly recommend. The detail and care that he takes in explaining the situation at had is comforting and reassuring, and I appreciated the fact that he handled by case personally as he promised to do. It was great dealing with only one attorney and not getting the runaround from one person to another. If you are looking for a criminal and DUI lawyer, I think you hardly go wrong.
