A lawyer that genuinely cares about you
It’s true. This is more than a job to him. I spent all day talking with several lawyers when trying to find one to help me with my case and felt extremely stressed, discouraged, and worried about the cost. My last call of the day was with Lew and it was a breath of fresh air. He didn’t make me feel like a criminal, he wasn’t concerned with the money, he wanted to make sure I knew everything would be OK and he would do everything in his power to make that happen. I was able to sleep for the first time in weeks after speaking to him. I knew he was the lawyer for me. Fast forward to my court date and Lew went above and beyond making it so easy, painless, and provided such a sense of relief. He is the real deal and I guarantee you won’t be disappointed with him. Thank you Lew.

DUI case
If you are guilty of a crime and trying to hire a gunner to help you get away with it, Lewis Rosenblum is probably not a right man for you. I have lived in OC for greater than 30 years as a practicing physician. Over this period I have probably met and worked with numerous attorneys in every specialty of Law. To this date I have not yet met a man like him either as a private citizen or a lawyer. And most likely I never will. Money is not an objective for him. Based on his caliber, expertise, knowledge, and experience, he should be charging twice as much as highest paid attorney in this country. Be quite honest, that still wouldn't be enough for the "quality" and "quantity" of work that he puts into what he believes in. He works so hard, with some sleepiness nights just to make sure his client gets the best possible outcome and a fair trial. Rating this incredibly caring and intelligent man with stars, is not within the scope of his professionalism or character. Believe me. Suffice to say you can consider yourself extremely lucky to have him represent you if he accepts your case. This is exactly what you would be expecting from an attorney who represents you when you are somehow in trouble. An honest, genuine, and tough attorney to stand for your rights if you are honest and sincere with yourself and him. No wonder he was considered as number one top prosecutor in Orange County DA's office for 30 years. He won every case with conviction. My case involved a DUI case. Was charged with both 23152(A) & 23152(B) count. Unfortunately it went all the way to jury trial. With his great skills I was found "not guilty" of all charges. Please be careful with lots of deceptive marketing scams out there showing they were able to "Dismiss" their client's "DUI" cases with BA of greater than .08. Please don't fall in trap for paying tens of thousands of dollars and find out later you made a wrong decision. What they are not telling you is their "plea bargain for other charges" which may be just as bad DUI. Words are not enough to express my gratitude to Mr. Rosenblum in protecting me, my family, and my future career. He is the man I will remember for rest of my life for the incredible work he performed in representing and defending me.

Amazing person and Lawyer
Lew is very professional, courteous, honest, knowledgeable, and a very caring attorney. I highly recommend him for your legal needs. You will be completely satisfied with his quality of work. I thank him everyday for getting all my charges dropped. I had a robbery and a child endangerment charge. He is more like a mentor. He was there for me and helped me get through the hard times. He is an amazing person. You will not regret hiring him!!!

The Best Preparation & Training Possible for a Criminal Case
I had under 3 weeks to prepare for a contempt trial as the petitioner. More importantly, I was representing myself in a quasi criminal court case as the petitioner. Each experienced attorney said the task was absolutely impossible for a non-attorney to handle - until one lawyer referred me to Lew Rosenblum. Thanks solely to Lew's amazingly mentoring & teaching, he walked me carefully through every phase of a criminal case. He prepped me for legal arguments that might arise on certain subjects & provided code sections for me to quote. Lew streamlined my case to its essential elements & gave me the roadmap to get the job done. When the moment of truth came, I had to put on my case with serious pressure from the judge to do things her way. once I pulled myself together, I followed the carefully scripted path that Lew had trained me for. I utilized judicial notice to enter court orders into evidence. I used Google Earth maps & pictures as demonstrative evidence that were entered. And I even was able to enter two social media blogs as relevant evidence of harassment violations, as opposed to using them as proof of facts (which are hearsay & not admissable). The sidebar legal issues that Lew discussed with me were all factors in the case. I was probably the person best prepared to state the arguments on those issues. Near the end of the hearing, the Respondent was convicted of contempt of a court order. Lew had prepared me with the end result in mind. That was particularly amazingly since he figured out a rarely utilized way that I could speak during sentencing. At the very end, the judge complimented me on managing the trial focused on the issues & facts, as well as being very organized. She then said that several criminal trial attorneys would have benefited by seeing how I put on the criminal trial, despite not being an attorney. That compliment is 100% for Lew Rosenblum. Without his expertise & knowledge, blending details & strategic tactics together, there was no way I could have gotten a conviction without his amazing help. I am totally honored & blessed to have met Lew Rosenblum. Unfortunately I expect to be dealing with more contempt violations in the future - but know I am far better off with Lew's guidance.

The Best
I live in Colorado but had gotten into some trouble when I was younger in Calif. and because of it was unable to acquire a passport so had to finally take care of it. This was a felony charge so to say I was very concerned on the outcome of this would be a vast understatement. I called several lawyers before I talked to Lewis and when I finally spoke to him it was clear he was the best choice for me. Since I have never hired a lawyer before I have no past experiences to compare him to other lawyers but I will say this. Lewis is one of the most honest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting, not only was he very fair on his retainer fee (took 1200 dollars right off the top because of the cost of my airline tickets in having to fly out) but he also told me exactly what to expect unlike some of the other lawyers I had talked to. When I finally met Lewis in California he was nothing but smiles most of the time with a positive energy that was very comforting. He developed a strategy and executed it perfectly. While I was there I had to withdraw some cash from the ATM in the courthouse and this woman approached us and proceeded to tell a story how she had remembered years ago watching him in the courtroom and it always stuck with her how professional and well versed he had been all those years ago. It was kind of like he was a rockstar and she was a huge fan scenario almost. If you need a good honest lawyer then look no further because you will find none better then Lewis Rosenblum. I usually do not give out a 10 rating but Lewis Rosenblum is that exception. He far exceeded every expectation I had and to be quite honest was the best money I ever spent. I truely feel that if Lewis had not represented me the outcome would have been much different and for that I am eternally grateful.

Literally the best...not an exaggeration
Lew was recommended to me by another lawyer friend. I didn’t know him before I met him two months ago. At our first meeting Lew took time getting to know me and my situation. I felt like he cared about me and wanted to help me and my family. He didn’t just want to win the case - he wanted to win my life back. I knew from reading other reviews that he knew what he was talking about and I put my trust in him. We had additional meetings when Lew took time really understanding the case and walked through the different possible outcomes. He was careful not to get my hopes up, and was very realistic. And yet - when we went to the courthouse I can say that miracles happened. Not only is Lew the most knowledgable and competent lawyer, but he worked in the DA’s office for 30 years and knows how they think and what motivates them. He knows what to stay away from and how to help them. And more than that...he knows everyone there! Even the most skilled lawyer in the world can’t buy connections - and in Lew’s case he has both! I couldn’t be more pleased. I quick word about his fee -- i don’t know what others lawyers charge, so I can’t compare. Personally I was surprised at first at the cost. But now I know that his price is more than reasonable (after asking around) and more than that...I would pay it again in a heartbeat given the results. Perhaps I could’ve paid a little less for someone else - and I’d probably still be in court right now!

This is who you want in your corner!
My daughter was going to be charged with a felony... and was in a major life crisis. I flew into California to help her and retain a lawyer. The minute I landed at the airport, I called Lew crying, overwhelmed and frightened. I was able to talk to him immediately upon landing and we met him that very day. When we met him, we knew he was the lawyer we wanted, to represent her. He is integral, trustworthy, honest, father like... caring and firm all in one. He is an excellent communicator and was always available. We really thought that life was over as we knew it and it was a very dark time to go through. The good news for my daughter is that the D.A.’s Office decided not to file criminal charges. I believe that had everything to do with Lew’s thoroughness, investigation, representation and integrity. Lew was with her every step of the way. My daughter has her life back, she was not only facing a felony but a minimum of a year in jail. She now has a great future ahead of her and we are very grateful for Lew, for taking this case and all he did. This is who you want in your corner!

The Absolute Best Juvenile Defense Attorney I Could Have Hoped For
If your juvenile son or daughter is in need of a Defense Attorney, look no further. Lewis Rosenblum is the very best. My son was a juvenile when he got into an altercation that went very badly and resulted in serious felony assault charges being filed against him, one being a "strike" felony. I can't describe the fear and anguish my wife and I felt in this situation. Thank God a close friend of mine recommended Lew. Many things set Lew apart from other Defense Attorneys, his decades of experience as a hugely successful Assistant District Attorney (including heading up the Juvenile Division), his impeccable skills, knowledge and attention to detail in the courtroom as well as his passion for being your advocate. Just as importantly, he truly cares about you as a person and not just as a client. He always put my wife and I at ease when our imaginations ran wild with the possible consequences our son might face for the rest of his life. Lew is a straight shooter who educates you as to the facts and challenges you are faced with and is always prompt in responding to any questions you may have. To top off all of that, from speaking to other parents who had similar experiences, I learned that Lew's fees are extremely reasonable compared to other attorneys who may or may not come close to one of his caliber. The net result of Lew defending my son was astounding. Lew got got all of my son's charges dismissed and got his juvenile records sealed. I walked out of the courtroom dumbfounded, elated and eternally grateful to Lew. Thank you Lew for giving my son the chance to live the good life he deserves to live.

Super Lawyer!
Lew Rosenblum, ESQ, was highly recommended by our family lawyer, when we were looking for a Criminal Defense Lawyer. During the course of handling our case, we noticed him to be thorough and does not leave any stone unturned. He even has a short turnaround time on our frantic phone calls & emails and that helps simmer down our stress levels. His dedication, commitment and Belief to the Great Architect of the Universe especially on our case makes him in our opinion a Super Lawyer! We would not only recommend him to our friends and family but also to colleagues, associates and acquaintances.

Great Attorney
I've not previously needed nor used a criminal defense attorney , so I don't have anyone else to compare Mr. Rosenblum to. I can't imagine that there is a better choice. MR. Rosenblum was honest and informative. He is quick to respond to phone calls and emails and to answer any questions that you may have. I could not have had a better experience or outcome with my case. I hope to never have a need for a defense attorney in the future, but if I do, there is no question as whom I will hire. Great attorney.

Courtroom Commander
I have had a great deal of difficulty composing a review for Mr. Lewis Rosenblum. Reason being, trying to find the appropriate words for the man who literally gave me my life back has not been easy. How can you put into words such emotions? I will do my best to keep this short and to the point. My criminal defense was not by any means an easy one. I am a former law enforcement officer and the four charges I was facing were being brought against me by my own department. As my life was literally hanging in the winds, I began my search for the best trial lawyer I could find. With many recommendations from family and friends, I sat with approximately a half dozen top notch attorneys. Mr. Rosenblum, or Lew, as he prefers to be called, was one of my interviews. From the moment I met him, I just got a warm and fuzzy feeling. I think I had just about every type of personality thrown at me. Lew had such a calm, cool, demeanor about him. As former Marines, we quickly "clicked" and after much consideration and prayer, I decided to retain him as my counsel. As the process began, Lew kept me informed concerning all aspects of the preparation for trial. With his 30 plus years of experience as a prosecutor, Lew was able to predict every action the DA made. His knowledge and relationships are truly priceless. The amount of work and preparation that went into my trial was honestly absurd. Lew handled all of it in stride and impressed more as each day passed. I never once throughout the entire process had one single doubt in my mind how hard this man was working for me. Dedication, devotion and pure compassion from the heart is what you get with Lew. Trial began and just as before, Lew predicted everything. When I say everything, I really mean everything. I knew I was in the best of hands. My trial received a great deal of media coverage. At minimum there were two reporters in the courtroom at all times and often times up to four. Lew handled the media in a completely professional manner. The trial lasted a total of 5 weeks. There were times where Lew needed to show sensitivity and he did. There were also times where a hard nosed approach was necessary, and he did that as well. The work he performed with the witness' and opposing DA was nothing short of amazing! He is highly respected by his peers, and for very good reason. Keep in mind, I have experienced a great deal of courtroom exposure with my former career, and Lewis Rosenblum is one of the best criminal defense attorneys in the nation. He commanded the courtroom and directed the trial. As far as the results, I could not have asked, or prayed, for anything more positive. Lew accomplished getting three charges dismissed and the fourth not guilty. These kinds of results against a government agency are next to unheard of. All in a days work for Mr. Rosenblum! I would like to finish my review on somewhat of a personal note and speak of his character. As I mentioned, I am a former Marine and law enforcement officer. I have never met anyone in my professional career or personal life with a higher standard of integrity than Lewis Rosenblum. He is a no nonsense individual and tells you exactly what you need to know. He goes after the people he needs to put pressure on and is sensitive when necessary. He has a huge heart, determined spirit and a competitive edge like you've never seen. I truly believe God brought Lew into my life for a number of different reasons, not just the victory he accomplished on my behalf in the courtroom. I hope in my heart this review has been of some assistance in making such an important decision. The decision I made to retain Lew was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my entire life. Once you are in his hands, there will be no doubt in your mind you made the best decision either! Thank you from the bottom of my heart Lew!

Lew Rosenblum
Lew was extremely helpful in every way. Made sure I knew exactly what I was getting into and did everything to keep me informed. He helped me so much with my case and I am so glad I chose him as my lawyer. He is also very knowledgeable and not only taught me things about my case but gave me life advice as well.

The best attorney I have ever met!
My son was questioned recently by a police investigator regarding an incident which occurred 3 years earlier. My son is very honest and admitted to everything not knowing the consequences. We were very surprised to open a letter from the District Attorney's Office stating he was being charged with a felony. My son would loose his full scholarship to college and his reputation would be ruined for life. I asked a Deputy District Attorney friend of mine for a good lawyer and he suggested Lewis Rosenblum. I have worked with many attorneys in my line of work. Lew is a cut above the rest. Lew demonstrates integrity, honesty and is very friendly. Lew is like the neighbour you wished you had. Lew also looks for clients who share the same characteristics. Lew worked with the prosecuting DA and they negotiated for some counseling and the case would be dismissed! My son can stay in school and not have his life ruined for the stupid mistake he made 3 years earlier. Lew gave my son a good lecture when we left court. Lew made it very clear my son was given a second chance. I could not have asked for a better attorney. I will never say, "Last one to the finish line is a defence attorney" ever again.

The best attorney you'll ever meet
Lew is everything that attorneys should be, but almost none really are. He is incredibly smart, and able to think well on his feet. His long career with the DA means that he can speak with prosecutors when no other defense attorney would be able to get through to them, and he is able to convince even the most headstrong prosecutors to take another look at your case. When he speaks, thanks to his great reputation, judges will listen, when they might not have taken a different attorney seriously. Spending one day at court with him, you'll see that he knows almost everyone there on a personal level. These relationships can make a big difference, because people know they can trust him. This also means that, as his client, you need to be completely honest with him and trust that he will get you the best possible disposition, because that's exactly what he will do. I've known many attorney's over the years, and Lew's pride in his work is unmatched. He takes every client's case personally, and invests a lot of himself in the result, so that he knows he did everything he could possibly do for you. And last but not least, even though Lew absolutely deserves, and could charge, the highest fees in the market, he keeps his fees extremely reasonable. Unlike many attorneys, money is not his primary motivation. He wants to be fairly compensated, but what really matters to him is making a difference in people's lives.

The Best of Best and Nothing Less
I was in the court room in June trying to deal with my intent to distribute charge that I had no clue of, I didn't know how to handle this matter or wether or not I could afford an attorney or if I should just represent myself. That all changed when I saw Mr. Rosenblum walk threw those doors , gentle kind sole, the presents that he drew to all the attorney's in the room working all stopped what they were doing and went out of there way to just shake Mr. Rosenblum's hand. I observed the way he handled his clients case and was amassed, just his presents alone speaks volume. As his case went on and there was an agreement with the DA the judge dismissed his clients case and add a few words before he did so. The judge told his client and everyone else in the room that Mr. Rosenblum is one of the best and he appreciated his time and spoke very highly of him, I couldn't believe my eyes or my ears, I wanted to meet this man and I had to. I got him in the hallway and told him my story, I was a lost soul at that point and the words that came out of my mouth I was surprised Mr. Rosenblum event gave me a minute but thank The Lord he did. We had allot in common being from back east and both serving in the Marines. He took my case but to be honest looking back I had no clue it was going to also change my life and the way I live it and to achieve mental goals that I am still working on and Mr. Rosenblum is still right by my side giving me life advice long after the resolution of my court case, I feel the money I spent to retain Mr. Rosenblum was a joke because just the advice he gives you and the guidance is worth that let alone he is handling your case. I still stop by his office and will talk for hours on how to improve my life and give me great books to read that I never new existed they are touching inspiring books teaching you how to control your mind, I don't know how he does such an amazing job in life in general, I never met someone more moving and touching then this gentleman. I don't know how I could have lived my life with out meeting the stand up man that he is. If you not only want a case handled but truly change your life and have an amazing friend by your side guiding you then Mr. Rosenblum is the one. I look up to him in such amazement and I know for a fact other people will and do the same. By the way if you were wondering the results in the case I was facing up too 3 years in jail and a felony charge and it was all dismissed. God bless you Mr Rosenblum and keep doing what you do Daniel

The best Attorney you can ask for!
Words cannot describe how amazing Mr. Rosenblum really is. I contacted him through Avvo because the amazing reviews I read and his knowledgable responses to questions to others have asked. I called him and he immediately made me feel comfortable and that I could tell him everything. We later met to discuss my case and he explained the process and what I should expect to happen. I drove down to his office where he answered every question to the fullest and I felt confident when I walked out of his office that I wont spend any times behind bars. He constantly updated me with what was going on in my case wether by phone, text or email. He enrolled me into a special program where I need to take a class and give a DNA sample. 2 months later my case was dismissed and my records remains clean. I was also going through the some tough times with a family tragedy and instead of just saying my condolences, he took his time and spoke to me for an hour, giving me comforting words and advise. This man is more than just a lawyer but a person I can call a friend. Im glad I met him, he is truly a great lawyer that you will not regret hiring him. Thank you Lawyer Lew!

His reputation precedes him in the community, and the expertise that derives from his extensive experience as a prosecutor make him a solid choice for your representation, or that of someone for whom you care."

"Lew Rosenblum had already carried a legendary reputation by the time I had first met him. For a considerable time he has been held in the highest regard by Orange County judges, veteran district attorneys, defense attorneys, private investigators, police departments, and almost every well-known member of the profession. When he walks into a courtroom, his clients see the respect and admiration he deserves for the countless cases he has put his efforts into. I continue to learn so much from Lew that a short endorsement would not do him justice. All that I know is that very few attorneys can operate on a level that he can--which is why so few ever do. I highly endorse this lawyer for the victories he has gained and the utmost professional conduct he brings to every case and client. Anyone who finds their way into needing an attorney would be lucky to have him on their side."

"I endorse this lawyer. I have known Lew for over 25 years. There is not a situation that can come up in a court room that he has not faced and handled. Every D.A. in Orange County knows who he is and what he is capable of. He is a fantastic attorney, He knows how to work a jury. If I were in trouble he is definitely on the very short list of people I would retain to defend me."

"I endorse this lawyer's work. I have known Lew since he was in law school, and continued to see his work as a lawyer, first when he worked for me as a law clerk and young lawyer, then watching his superb work in the District Attorneys Office as one of the top prosecutors, and as a criminal defense lawyer. Lew is smart, ingenious, a superb trial lawyer, empathetic while remaining strategic, and one who has been recognized for his many accomplishments over the years. He has given and will continue to give the best legal services, he is dedicated with a huge work ethic."

"In additon to being a very personable attorney, Lew is also brilliant and hard-working. He is the type of attorney that will take the time to fully explore all issues in your case and to zealously advocate your interests. His trial skills are phenomenal. As a homicide attorney within the DA's office he prosecuted 64 murder cases and obtained 64 convictions. The same trial skills that made him the best prosecutor in the State of California also make him one of the very best defense attorneys in the State of California. His unmatched trial skills are widely recongized by judges and prosecutors alike. In fact, his peerless reputation within the criminal defense community is such that his name alone will intimidate opposing counsel. There is no better attorney to have on your side. If I were accused of a crime, I'd hire Lew in a heartbeat."

"Not enough can be said about the quality of Lew Rosenblum's work. As a prosecutor, he was a tireless advocate of exceptional ability. The California District Attorney's Association recognized him for his outstanding work as a trial lawyer. He is tenacious, smart, extremely talented, and motivated to use this experience to defend those accused of crime. You owe it to yourself to visit with him if you find yourself in legal trouble."

"As a prosecutor for 13 years, I had the privilege of observing all of the top trial attorneys who worked in the Orange County DA's office during my tenure there. I also had the good fortune of knowing many of the top prosecutors in other DA's offices statewide. I can say without hesitation that Lew was the best prosecutor I ever met. He is known in the legal community as a legend. His work ethic is nothing short of extraordinary. His tenacity is unmatched. When he makes a decision to take a case, the other side is in for the fight of their lives. My opinions about Lew are shared by many others. Of the thousands of prosecutors in California, he was selected by his peers in the California District Attorneys Association as the Prosecutor of the Year in 1998. He was also selected by California Lawyer Magazine as one of the top 20 attorneys in California (including both criminal AND civil attorneys). Lew is truly a master trial lawyer. A client could be in no better hands."
