Arts Professional
Garret is sharp, tenacious, and authentic. Most importantly, he has exceptional interpersonal skills that are necessary when advocating for his clients under the legal process. I observed the way he created strong relationships with the DA and Judge which were critical components in a complicated case for my partner and I. We had the best outcome because of him. Couldn't recommend him more.

Best Criminal Defense Lawyer.
Garret Weinrieb is the Ultimate Defense Attorney! He worked with incredible diligence, tenacity and commitment on my behalf. Garret has a gift of skills and timing that resulted in my charges being reduced in severity and potential penalties. The respect he is given by his court colleagues and clients is clearly well-deserved. In addition, his fees are fair, justified and earned. My family and I are forever grateful. I recommend him enthusiastically. (Always would keep me updated letting me know what was going to happen and gives you peace of mind, without him i wouldn’t probably even be writing this review)

Honest and straightforward
Garret was honest and straightforward with me regarding my DV case and also my concerns with my professional licensing board. Garret answered all of my questions and offered professional insight on valid issues. A huge relief during a very stressful time!

5 star lawyer...
Top notch from initial phone consult to case outcome. Never makes false promises or uses scare tactics like some other attorneys from my younger days. I hired Garret Weinreib to deal with a petty theft case and his ability to keep you up to date, calm and the feeling you hired the best is priceless. Needless to say the outcome was more than I expected and do yourself a favor and look no further. Garret is your guy...

Winning Results
Garret did a tremendous job not only keeping me up to date on the process of my case but delivering the results. My case was not as straight forward due to some circumstances and Garret got it all handled perfectly.

This man is a great human being
Not only a family man but means business in the court room . Garret not only lowered my charges and no jail time but he got my 2 yr probation dropped early due to work i have outside the country. You’re a saint and anyone that’s in trouble with the law you need someone on your side and Garret is the only choice!

Awesome!
Garrett helped me out with a potential probation violation and was able to get the case dismissed. The whole case was questionable - at best - and a minor offense, but I was looking at years if it wasn't dealt with properly. Very personable guy! I'd recommend him to anyone in need of some help!

Garret Weinrieb Is A Mariacle Worker
For 3 years I had a warrant hanging over my head since 2014. I have been a resident all my life to another state. I was told by my public defender that i had to go back to CA in order to get the warrant resolved. Which is about a 2000.00 flight for me. So due to finances, i have been unable to afford the trip so I have had the warrant for the last 3 years. Finally, in 2018, I was able to get the money to get out there. With the 3 years gone by I lost my public defender. I researched criminal defense lawyers and called Garret. I immediately knew he was the guy to take my case. He was also about 3000.00 dollars cheaper than the other attorney I called before him. Long story short, Garret was able to get my warrant dropped. Probation terminated. Felony dropped to a misdemeanor and ALL charges expunged. And I did NOT have to take the flight. Garret is definitely a miracle worker. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a honest and straight up attorney who will fight for you and work until the job is done. He has been a blessing in my life and I can't even thank him enough.

Dismissed Case
Garret was able to get a charge for drinking in public dismissed by simply attending AA classes. It was vital to have this dropped as I was in the process of obtaining a government position. While mine was a minor case, I would recommend his services. He was upfront and honest about the whole process without making any false promises. He clearly outlined all the possible outcomes and what he would do to get the case dismissed.

I highly recommend this attorney for anyone who is overwhelmed by the choice out there. I am very pleased I chose Garret and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for trustworthy assistance.

The best representation you can get
After being accused of a serious crime and not knowing what to do or where to go I started contacting several criminal defense attorneys and luckily got to meet with Garret Weinrieb. Unlike previous attorneys I met with he actually took the time to ease my concerns and explained the whole process and what to expect. He was available anytime I had any questions or concerns regarding my case. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing a criminal defense attorney.

Well earned reputation
I sought references for a defense attorney from a personal acquaintance who is an Assistant District Attorney prosecuting criminal offenses. Garret was at the top of the list, and his recommendation proved to be well deserved. I could not be more pleased with his expertise, demeanor, and accessibility. I am extremely satisfied with the outcome of the matter, and highly recommend his services.

Reliable and can get you the best possible outcome
I had the privilege of hiring Garret to handle my case. We had discussed and planned our approach. I have been anxious to get updates and reports since my situation is complicated. He was prompt, patient and encouraging when he answers my questions either by text, email or calls. Going through the process could have been scarier without him. Im thankful that he was there and we had a positive results overall. I would highly recommend him to my friends and family.

Marijuana Collective gone wrong
In March of 2017 I was cited for operating a marijuana collective without a license. Although, I thought I had all the necessary documents to operate, the City of Los Angeles felt I was in the wrong and was looking to make my life difficult. I was not only cited for operating an illegal business, but I had 4 counts against me and small list of other charges. Long story short, I contacted Garret and he was able to not only put me at ease, but keep all his promises. I found Garret to be honest, insightful, and extremely trustworthy. On my final court date this attorney was able to get me a plea that included no jail time, a crazy low fine and no community service. AND also, NO record. I was extremely impressed and very grateful. One other thing I found to be even more validating was when my lawyer entered the room he was liked and greeted by everyone. People respected him, including the district attorney. In my opinion that can go along way when your freedom is on the line. He presents well, thinks outside the box and gets results. I seriously could not have had a better lawyer at my trial.

What a blessing to have Garret as our attorney!
Garret was wholeheartedly recommended to us by a family friend who had been represented by him. From the first meeting we had with Garret, we were impressed by his professionalism and expertise, approachable demeanor, impeccable style, and charismatic personality. Over the span of several months, it was always easy to communicate with Garret, as he would promptly respond to our emails or texts. He represented our son on 2 different cases where he had a felony charge for each (which we truly felt did not merit felony charges). Words can never be enough to express the gratitude and relief we continue to experience after all of Garret's diligence in our son's 2 cases. One felony charge was reduced to a misdemeanor and the other felony charge was dismissed! It would definitely not have been possible to attain these results on our own, and for that, we are completely grateful to have had Garret as our son's lawyer. We completely recommend Garret to anyone who needs a criminal defense lawyer who will work thoroughly on a case to provide the best results for his clients. Garret proved to be an incomparable choice! We feel we can breathe more easily now in hopes for a better future for our son, without the stigma of felonies on his record.
