Great lawyer
Rob is a great lawyer. He is honest and knows the law especially when it comes to DUI cases. He was able to do what a public defender could not due to lack of knowledge which kinda says a lot about our justice system, sadly.

Professional, Prompt, and diligent!
Hiring Rob to represent me was a great choice for me. I know how shady many lawyers can be and how hard it is to make a wise decision when you’re in a bad situation. Thankfully, I made the right choice. Rob was always communicating and keeping me informed. It was a tough case cause it was messy but we fought it together and worked with each other to get the best possible results, and I’m satisfied and grateful for the outcome. You’re a solid guy and I’m glad i entrusted you. I’m humbled from the experience and appreciate you rob! Thank you.. James

Very diligent and attentive lawyer
Hiring Mr. Samudrala is a no brainer. 100% satisfied with his work. I was traveling from out of state and he helped me with my case, and made things run smoothly. Also, he helped get my case expunged. This is the lawyer to work with if you want things done right.

Excellent DUI Attorney
I can't thank Rob enough for helping me through this. I would highly recommend him to anyone going through a DUI. - Always answered my calls / messages right away. - Was clear and helpful throughout the whole process. - Got me the best possible outcome for my situation. I have my peace of mind back, so thank you Rob.

He did it
I thought my job was lost thanks to getting a dui but no. He managed to get me deferred for 2 years. He saved my job. Every question I had, he answered. Was on top of phone calls and texts. I recommend him in a heartbeat!

Dui charge Reduced- Amazing Lawyer!
Rob For Mechanics!!! I don’t know where to start with explaining my pleasant experience with Rob. I was pulled over for a DUI I had open containers in plain sight a friend who was passed out in my back seat and to top it off I blew a .14—it was just a mess. This was my First DUI so I had no idea of the process but Rob made the whole process so clear and so easy. I can easily say if it wasn’t for Rob’s punctuality and patience I would’ve not gotten the verdict I wanted. This process dragged on for almost year “because of Covid” and generally these DUI process are not quick—Rob was amazing! He showed up for 4 of my hearings and ALWAYS made sure to give a follow up of how it went and what the plan going forward could be. I never had to miss work, never had to call off a million times. He took care of everything and for the final date where I had to show up I had a medical emergency I couldn’t make it and Rob with ought blinking re-scheduled, sent me a new date and said see you soon— THATS A BADASS. As far as my verdict we got exactly what we spoke about from day one Rob was able to get my charge reduced to a Wet reckless and as a Auto Mechanic I explained Rob the importance of not being charged with a DUI because essentially it wouldn’t ruin my career and not allow me to work anywhere and he understood and executed my case perfectly. I will be posting about Rob and leaving a review anywhere I can because honestly this guy is the best for anybody looking for a lawyer in San Bernardino and he saved my career and life. Thank you Rob!

DUI reduced to wet reckless!
I was referred to Rob by my license defense team. I am a registered nurse, and getting a DUI has the potential to basically ruin my career. I made a bad choice to drive after having a few drinks at a bar with coworkers after a hard day. I was pulled over just several feet away from arriving at my destination. I blew .11 on both breath tests. I was arrested. Reality hit me like a ton of bricks, I was an absolute mess... After I was finally able to compose myself, I called Rob. Rob was very honest with me, gave me realistic expectations, and guided me through this confusing process. For the most part, Rob was quick to respond to my questions and concerns, texting me back or calling back soon after I reached out to him during the duration of my case. He helped me delay my DMV hearings when not all the evidence was available. This helped keep me driving so I could go to work. Later on we found out my blood test at the station came back at 0.15!! Rob turned a dire situation into one with a silver lining. He communicated with the prosecution, using a rising BAC style defense to negotiate. When all was said and done, he managed to get my DUI reduced to wet reckless! This is a major victory for me, as it can be pivotal to saving my career and my license. Thanks Rob! I highly recommend this attorney if you are in a similar situation as me.

Dui
Rob handled both of my dui cases. I never did jail time thanks to him and my 2nd dui was dismissed thanks to his hard work.

Positive review
During the difficult time of uncertainty and doubt, I searched for a defense team that could understand and help me through my DUI case. From the start Rob and his team were determined to fight for me and all the while making sure to cover all bases and to keep me informed of every step and changes throughout the process. Hands down the best experience I have had with a lawyer and would recommend 100%. Thank you for being transparent and fighting for me until the end.

Excellent Dui Attorney
Mr. Samudrala was a very professional attorney. He will answer his calls and if need be return calls as soon as he can. Communication was excellent and his knowledge of Dui and the process and the courts was current, and precise. I am very pleased to have had him as my attorney and would highly recommend him to anyone. You can trust he knows what he is doing with 100% honesty!

The Best!
Rob is the best! How I know that as the truth and why you can and should believe me: because I have worked with other Dui lawyers before. This was my second time offense DUI. And I didn’t choose to go with the first lawyer I hired. Rob a.) offered me a way more affordable payment plan versus most other lawyer fees that are over the top expensive and not worth the extra cost added to the already costly amount of just getting a DUI in the first place; b.) He actually responds to you right away (call or text or email) which my first lawyer (who was supposed to be one of the top dog lawyers in the LA area ) wouldn’t. I never had to text or call Rob twice or worry he wouldn’t get back to me; c.) as I mentioned before this was my 2nd time DUI…he got my case dropped to a wet & reckless! I actually had lower court fines than my first time too!!!; d.) he is super kind and caring and doesn’t judge you and actually looks at you like a human. Other lawyers just make you feel like you’re profit only, a mindless business transaction, and that’s all they care about (the money). Rob actually cares about you and the outcome of your case. He made me feel totally comfortable and our conversations were super down to earth and I felt like I could ask him anything and he was very clear and thorough explaining things to me and in a way that wasn’t condescending or judgmental. He even brought me chocolate the first time we met! Haha. Which by the way, he drove out of the way from his own office to come meet with me when I asked for a meeting because I had so much anxiety and lots of questions. He calmed me down, as most lawyers “will,” but he also followed through and got me the best deal I could have asked for. Most other lawyers are all talk. And they just tell you what you want to hear. I could tell Rob was sincere and truly cared and would work his hardest for me and he did and that is what calmed me down. He honestly felt like a smart friend going above and beyond to help me get the best outcome. For the love of everything holy, as a person who has been through this before….go to him. He will work hard for you, treat you with respect, get you the best deal possible, and won’t break your bank. He’s got my full recommendation (honestly, necessary requirement even) and faith. Thank you Rob! For everything!

HIRE HIM!!! HE GOT MY CASE DISMISSED!!!
I'd give 1,000 stars if I could!!! Rob Samudrala's professionalism and experience speaks volumes in court and he is one of the best! We hired him for a sketchy DUI charge. He was very patient with us in explaining every detail and was comforting through out the process. His dedication to client satisfaction is exceptional & incredible. I was so impressed with how he handled our case so swiftly and he worked fast! He was professional, thorough and kept us informed on all the possibilities and outcomes. He responded quickly to a call for consultation, reviewed, previewed the case and agreed to handle the case with great confidence. I highly recommend him and if needed would call him again. From the start he took immediate control of the case and was always knowledgeable and fully prepared. He was never too busy to answer any of our questions or explain what was happening. He really stood up for us and made us feel like our lives truly mattered at a time we had just lost all hope. I'm so happy we found him, because of him we were able to get positive results from the district attorney's office. He knew from the moment he heard our situation that we had a strong possibility for it to be dismissed. Low & behold, 6 agonizing month's of waiting & waiting, he informs us the DA has no substantial evidence & that the case was dismissed. He even went out of his way to provide it in writing as we felt it was too good to be true. His fees were reasonable & we got far more than we paid for!!!! My wife & I truly owe him a large debt of gratitude for all he has done for us. Rob is honestly the only attorney I would recommend without any reservations. L He's more vested in helping you than robbing your pockets, SERIOUSLY! He is capable and compassionate and would do his best not just to win your case but to help restore your life. HIRE HIM!!!

He really came through!
Mr. Samudrala really helped me in my particular situation. He knew how to reassure me that everything would work out fine. I really think that if i would have not hired Mr. Samudrala, I'd be in worse trouble. I would recommend his work for anyone seeking legal assistance.

Hiring Mr. Samudrala to represent my DUI charge was one of the best choices I made
I would highly recommend Attorney Rob Samudrala to represent your DUI charge. The first day I talked with him on the phone I felt that he was a nice person in general but equally important he knows how to help you get the best outcome for a DUI charge that you can walk away with. My licence was only suspended for one week and will only be restricted for 5 months. He won our DMV hearing and got us the least amount of penalties in court that we could of received. I was always greatfull for his honesty and guidance he gave us as well as him always being there when we had guestions. I could call him or text him and always expect a response from him in a reasonable amount of time.

Very Satisfied
From the Very beginning Rob was honest with me and straight forward. I could tell from the get go he wasn’t the type to just take my money and jump through the hoops for me. He actually cared about my case, gave me hope and put my mind at ease. Regardless of the outcome of the case you are definitely getting your money’s worth with rob. Ignore all the letters in the mail after your dui for attourneys. Hire Rob. He will be honest with you, he will put in the work and come up with the best possible plan of action to help you in your case.

DUI Case
Hiring Lawyer Rob Samudrala was the best decision I could've made. I was in a tough situation. I was stopped by the police after a terrible mistake of drinking and driving. My alcohol level was at around .15 the first time and .13 the second time. This was my first offense ever and I was very worried about what implications it could have on my immigration status. I am a DACA recipient and my biggest worry was losing my DACA status and not being able to renew. Rob really listened to my concerns and truly cared. He walked me step by step through the various questions I had and worked with me to find the best solution. It took a couple of months trying to figure out what was the best approach for the case, which can only tell you how much he cared in finding the best solution. Rob was able to lower my charge from a DUI to a wet reckless. With the alcohol level being what it was, it was truly a miracle and he was able to get it done. Now I am able to renew my DACA without worry. Thank you Rob, truly the best decision. You can't go wrong with hiring him for your DUI case.

Reliable / Knowledgeable / Affordable
Without knowing a lot about Rob, I hired him with money up front to represent a family members DUI. The amount charged seemed reasonable, and throughout the process Rob was always available by cell, and willing to answer any and all questions we may have had. He was knowledgeable in offering possible solutions and possible resolutions in preparation of the court appearance. He did his homework as far as knowing who the judge would be, expectations, possible penalties and assessments, and based on these things, provided us reasonable options we might consider on the date of the court appearance, as well as worst case scenarios, based on his experience. The outcome, because of Rob's involvement, was a great outcome and now I can say he was worth every penny. No need to ponder, if you're considering who to hire [my humble opinion].
