I was fortunate enough to have Lew represent me in a very complex criminal case. His insight, experience and integrity, resulted in the dismissal of the charges against me. I owe my freedom and my future to this extraordinary professional. Anyone in need of the very best criminal defense attorney should beg Lew Rosenblum to represent them. I am very pleased Lew was on my team.

I would recommend Mr. Rosenblum to anyone who needs to be represented by the BEST. Lew is exactly that the BEST. He is not only the at the top at his business, but is caring, trustworthy, polite, and not judgmental. I believe that he cares about the person he is representing and not just out to make a quick buck at the clients expense. He handled the case on a flat rate and he kept me well informed as we progressed. He had no issues of responding to my emails or receiving phone calls.
While going through a very messy divorce with a restraining order filled against me. I made a bad mistake of innocently emailing my daughter in which I unknowingly violated the r/o. The DA filled a case of violating the restraining order. Lew was able to obtain a dismissal, which was a lot better than the 3 years of Probation, the 52 week Battererâ€™s Treatment program and no gun ownership for 10 years that the DA had initially offered me to settle the case. While I did have to submit a DNA sample, the case was handled marvelously.
I feel that although Mr. Rosenblum was my attorney, he is someone I would be proud to call my friend.
I just wish he was a divorce attorney also.

I had contacted several attorneys through a basic google search to try and find the right person to help with a misdemeanor citation I received while riding a Metrolink train. With an arraignment hearing on the horizon, and because the circumstances surrounding my citation were based upon a misunderstanding, I did not want to mess around with trying to handle the matter on my own and risk the possibility of a first conviction and lasting criminal record.
Lew Rosenblum listened patiently over the phone as I explained my situation, never making me feel rushed or limited on time. I could immediately tell by the questions he asked and the way that he explained the possible approaches to handling my case, that he was very experienced and knew the best way to obtain the most favorable outcome for me. I learned later from perusing Lew's website that he is former longstanding deputy District Attorney in Orange County, which made me even more confident to entrust my case to him, as I recognized the importance of a defense attorney who also understood 'the other side' and how the prosecution thinks. Additionally, Lew's rooted contacts and relationships with judges and district attorneys in Orange County was a very important consideration; I actually work for an excellent law firm in downtown Los Angeles and had the gracious offer to receive complimentary counsel from the lawyers in my firm, but turned the offer down because I wanted a well-positioned local attorney who knew the key players.
Lew handled my case with the utmost professionalism, sympathy, and care from beginning to end, and was very prompt with emails, returning phone calls and staying in touch; I never had to wonder "what is happening with my case?" because he would communicate with me regularly throughout the process. A few days before my arraignment, Lew was kind enough to have a long conference call with my fiance and me to help quell our concerns and thoroughly answer all of our questions (again).
The BEST part about the representation I received from Lew came in the form of the swift and perfect resolution to my case. The possible outcomes of my citation ranged from a misdemeanor conviction and $250 fine to a reduced charge of an infraction, and possibly a smaller fine, community service, an 8-hour "anti-theft" class, and/or a DNA sample, all of which were very troubling to me, but my main objective was to avoid any sort of a record. Lew explained that the outcome I was looking for would likely take 2-3 appearances and possibly a trial, and I was prepared for the long-haul. To my very pleasant surprise, I received contact from Lew on the day of my arraignment informing me that he was able to explain my situation to the judge who sympathized with my predicament, and ordered that I merely pay a $25 "correction fee," following which the charges would be dismissed. Although the judge gave me 30 days to pay the $25 fee, Lew went ahead and made the payment that same day at the cashier's office so that my case could be dismissed then and there. It could not have turned out any better!
Lastly, Lew's rates were very reasonable, especially considering the breadth of his experience, position within the Orange County legal circuit, and the number of times he was anticipating making appearances on my case, to say nothing of his generous availability to communicate with me. I just could not have received better counsel. Period.

When I was facing the most difficult, scariest time of my life, Lew was the only lawyer of the 20+ lawyers I called that helped me feel at ease and walked me through each step with patience and concern. He was professional and genuinely concerned for me and what I was going through. He was more than a lawyer, and like a surrogate father figure. He never sugarcoated anything and gave it to me openly, honestly-- but still in a way where I was able to digest things. I think what I most appreciated from Lew was that he wasn't after my money and he wasn't about quickly getting the job done, like the many other lawyers I had encountered. He was there for me and saw me as a person. He was empathic yet professional-- if you're at your wits end over the legal system like I was, trust me when I say: You want Lew.

Lew is an outstanding lawyer. He was extremely helpful in all aspects of my DUI case. He was able to save me money and time and was so friendly throughout the entire process. Thanks LEW!!!

I was referred to Lew by someone with whom he worked at the District Attorney's office. From our initial consultation through until the end of my case, Lew made me feel like we were a team. He informed me of all of my options all of the time and was very informative about the process, which I really appreciated. He made me feel like he was constantly thinking about my case (and I know he was). He even came back early from his vacation to work on my case. I am an attorney myself, so I understand the client relationship and also likely have a higher standard to meet. Not only did Lew always make me feel better when I talked to him, he is brilliant. He ran through every aspect of my case to determine the best way to do things, and the way to do thinkgs so that my main concerns were always addressed. I can't say enough how thankful that I had him to trust and rely on through what was a very stressful and important situation that I faced. I really feel like we got to know each other through dealing with my case and I know that I will always be able to call Lew a friend.

I was referred to Mr. Rosenblum by a family friend (another Lawyer) and was told that he is the BEST. I gave him a call immediately and was able to meet with him the same day. He was very nice, professional, and began to work on my case immediately. He always emailed or called with updates and kept you in the loop. If you had any questions he answered them fully and in a way so that you can understand them easily. He spoke to the D.A. and the detective and handled the case so that it was dismissed. Mr. Rosenblum is NOT one of those lawyers who you pay and not hear from. His words are accountable and if he says he is going to do something he will do it. He is proactive on your case and most of all he is a superb human being.

Mr. Rosenblum was the 15th lawyer I spoke to regarding my case. I kept him for last because I knew he was the best. After meeting him in person, I understood why. While other lawyers underestimated my case and said I had nothing to worry about (the charge being Domestic Violence/punishment of 90 days in jail) and other lawyers who worried about nothing else but their fees and obtaining a retainer, meeting Lew was like a breathe of fresh air. Immediately he asked me to tell him about what happened and the sincere concern he had for my future and well-being was evident. He took the time to know me as a person without judging me based on the charge. He was honest about my options, the good and the bad while giving me encouragement and support to get through the case. He is a very honest person and expects the same from his clients. I can't tell you what a relief it is to be absolutely forthcoming with your attorney without feeling judged or worrying the information you share will be used against you in some way. Although he is the BEST in what he does, he is a very humble and wonderful person. He is very proactive, goes out of his way to help and you can always count on what he says- if he says he'll call you, he will. If he says he'll fax/email you, he will.
My original charge of Domestic Violence was pleaded down to a Disturbing the Peace because Lew allowed the courts to see I was not a violent person, I did not mean anyone harm and that the incident I was arrested for was an unfortunate situation that could have happened to anyone. He allowed me to be honest with him and with myself so that I could get the help I needed for my alcohol/drug use without being punished and sentenced to 90 days in jail. I will never be able to thank Lew enough for everything he did for my case and for me personally. Although I thought this case was the worst thing that could have happened in my life, I truly believe now this is the best thing that could have happened because through Lew's help I am finally getting my life back on track with the help I never knew I needed. He is a brilliant lawyer but a more amazing person and he has become my friend.
God bless Lew and his family. I know God blessed me when he led me to Mr. Lewis Rosenblum.

Lew was able to successfully dispose of a case that another lawyer could not make headway with. Thank you, Lew.

Mr. Rosenblum is a great attorney that works hard for his clients. He is verry experienced and has knowledge to take good care of his clients. He is very personable with integrity and honesty plus his experience and knowledge and knowing so many people in the court and it makes it so easy for him to solve any case. When I was in a situation that needed an attorney so badly and I felt so desparate for a good attorney to help me, my business attorney refered Mr. Rosenblum and I contacted him and then he helped me and my family so much that we became good friends. He showed me that it was not about a case or a business opportunity, but it was about helping someone that needed help and I was so desparate for help and god brought him to us. He proved to me and my family that there are good attorneys out there that are interested in helping people and there are attorneys out there that are not in this only for money, but for helping people and watch for their money and he did that for us. We could not have got any better help from anyone else, but Mr. Rosenblum. I would recommend Mr. Rosenblum to anyone that needs help and in need of good attorney. I assure you that they will have a great experience with him and they will realize it from the begining. God bless Mr. Rosenblum and his family for all of his help to me and my family.
