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.
