Mr. Gurwitz helped me in a case where I was arrested for shoplifting. It was a stupid one-time mistake on my part, and fortunately he was able to get the court to accept my admission of an infraction, instead of a more serious misdemeanor charge.

Brian has represented my son several times when he got into trouble with the law due to his mental illness. Each time, Brian was able to work with the DA to find the best possible resolution for my son, getting the charges dismissed or lowered. Due to Brian's amazing skill, my son was able to enter a hospital for treatment, rather than be incarcerated. I am truly thankful for what Brian has done for my son.

Brian embodies everything that you hope for in a lawyer. Not only did Brian succeed in beating every expectation in my case, but he took the time to understand and care for the emotional trauma that I was going through. I deeply respect Brian as a human being and would easily recommend him to anyone looking for help in a difficult legal situation. He made a confusing situation clear. He was calm under pressure. He never failed to do his homework and was never wrong about the law. He was honest throughout our dealings, and he had the connections and understanding of our justice system to make things happen.

Mr. Gurwitz was handed a difficult case concerning my situation. He had a job to do and he did just that. He was considerate to my ordeal and truly went to bat for me. Brian is kind and straightforward and in my opinion will give you worst case scenario, just in case. I will be forever grateful to Brian and his associate Kyle.

I couldn't have been more happy with Brian, he did a great job representing me and my case. He was very professional, he and his firm knew their legal stuff. They helped me understand all charges against me and fought very hard for me. If I ever need a lawyer again, I definitely will hire Brian Gurwitz again. I recomend him to anyone who needs a criminal lawyer.

I have retained Brian Gurwitz 2 times and he has saved me both times!!! I would not be where I am today if it was not for him. 1st case was a DUI case, I was pulled over and given a breathalizer test and blew just below the legal limit but the police said they felt I was impaired. Brian Gurwitz got the case dropped to a wet reckless and no DUI!!! Next case was a lot more serious. I was arrested for Felon In Possesion of a Firearm. I had a lot to lose on this 1. I have a great job, had just bought a house, my wife was pregnant and I was the sole income in the house hold. A anonymous person sent a picture of me at a gun range to the local police department who then got a search warrant for my home and found legally registered firearms in a gun safe. Police said I was looking at 6 years in prison. Brian got me probation and 3 months of house arrest. I owe the life I have now to Brian, He not only saved me, but my family, and my home also. I don't go out looking for trouble, but when it finds me I retain Brian Gurwitz hands down!!! He will never sugar coat things and will be honest. He doesn't sell fantasies or dreams but does keeps you in touch with the reality of the circumstances you are facing. Most of all...he does an outstanding job. Thank you for saving my life Brian!!!

In my search for an attorney, I came across several prospects that seemed knowledgable but also came off more interested in gouging me for money rather than looking out for my interest. There were also a few that just didn't seem to show any integrity which was definitely not what I was looking for. The "cheap" attorneys seemed more content in just pushing me to settle despite the ramifications.
Brian charges a flat fee for service based on the amount of time he anticipates to spend on the case but that has never stopped him from putting in what I consider an extremely large amount of effort when necessary. He goes above and beyond and fought for me relentlessly (but not in a pushy or combative manner) but was also wise enough to show me which battles were worth fighting and which weren't.
As a former DA turned defense attorney, I trusted him to understand the ins and outs of the system and he did not disappoint. An extra bonus was that he recently brought on Kyle Molchan who has just also been an incredible asset when I'm unable to reach Brian immediately. Kyle shows the same integrity and the synergy they have is great. I can't say enough to show my appreciation for all Brian and his team has done for me but would highly, highly recommend him to anyone who's looking for criminal representation. If anyone is looking to contact me directly as a reference, let Brian know and I'll happily do so.

I had to look for a lawyer to defend my case for "Reckless Evading," which is a wobbler and can be tried as a misdemeanor or felony. What seemed to be an easy case to be brought down to a misdemeanor because of the severity of my actions, ended up being a very stressful journey.
I was first paired with an incompetent lawyer who wouldn't even show up to my hearings. She was also immediately willing to settle with the sentence the judge was hinting to give me without showing any real effort of at least attempting to take it down to a lesser punishment.
I was then recommended by a close family friend to schedule a meeting with Brian and Kyle. I immediately noticed the difference between my previous lawyer and Brian. He was very knowledgeable, and even with his extremely busy schedule with his family and other clients, he still managed to make it to all of my hearings even if it were just a minor hearing which took a couple of minutes.
The judge was still willing to give me a felony which would have been very detrimental to my future as a graduating college student. Brian put up one of the best arguments I have ever heard, and delivered it to the court the best way possible during my open plea hearing. In the end, Brian was able to reduce my sentence to a misdemeanor.
I highly recommend Brian, he is the best lawyer out there.

Brian is a bright, knowledgeable attorney with a great attitude. He is very personable and attentive. He listened to my situation, explained my options, and got me the best possible outcome. I needed my record expunged and Brian handled everything. A short time later I received notice from the court that my entire criminal history had been expunged. I am grateful to Brian for all his hard work on my case and would recommend him to anyone. Truly a class act. Thanks for everything Brian...
