Excellent Service...Extremely Satisfied
I am very happy with the service that was provided by Raymund Robles. He came highly recommended by a friend. Ray is precise, professional and reliable. He clearly explained the situation I was in and what my best option was to resolve it. He laid out a strategic strategy and executed it thoroughly. He eventually got my case thrown out and closed. Throughout the whole process the communication was excellent, the case was handled professionally with care and the final result was what I was wishing for. Thank you very much for your help.

Highly capable and reliable attorney
Last year, I found myself at the lowest point in my life. I was suddenly facing a serious criminal charge and feeling terrified and totally hopeless. I called as many defense attorneys as I could find and heard their appraisals of my situation and the strategies they suggested. I had no experience with lawyers, I didn't know when to read confidence as bluster or whether they were reading off of scripts with my name inserted. All I knew was that I had to choose fast. One of the attorneys I contacted was Raymund Robles, which in retrospect might have been the smartest thing I did. During the consultation, Ray was very compassionate about my situation and helped me calm down and think rationally. He took the facts of the case, the many unknowns that were present, and his extensive experience with the law in calculating the strategy with the best outcome. I felt immediately comforted by having someone like Ray fighting my case. The case stretched much longer than was anticipated but Ray stuck with me throughout, always keeping me in the loop about new facts or complications. Always responsive to my questions. He was aggressive in securing the best possible outcome, even if it meant further prolonging the case. Most importantly, Ray made me feel in control of the strategy at all times, and I never felt "along for the ride." The case recently concluded, with a vastly more favorable outcome than I had thought possible. I'm left feeling like I've been given another chance, and I thank Ray greatly for that. I would absolutely recommend anyone in a situation similar to the one I was in last year to contact Raymund Robles.

Great lawyer, kind and patient
I have been involved in a breach of contract case of a consignment for selling of my car for almost a year until I started a conversation with Ray. Trust me it was frustrating, the fact that you have to pay more money to get your own money back legally is hard to digest. Until almost a year later I finally made a decision to move forward taking legal actions with Robles & Tantraphol PLC. And a few months later, now Ray has won the case for me for an even better result than I've expected. Ray has been extremely patient and kind during this entire time and I really appreciate all of his time and hard work. I would highly recommend anyone in similar trouble reach out to Ray and you are in great hands.

Phenomenal Attorney with Phenomenal Results
The imprint left behind by a few misguided decisions in the past can be quite devastating from all standpoints of life; career advancement, social interactions, etc. My case was rather complicated, as it involved more than one county; and the charges were ones that presumably no individual would ever want to have on their record. I knew that I needed to work with an attorney who not only had extensive knowledge on cases like mine, but one who had the compassion to go above and beyond for their client. I've spoken to Raymund Robles in the past and was impressed by his familiarity and understanding of what exactly I was going through and all possible outcomes. Also, it was quite apparent that he was interested in taking the time to get to know me and the specifics of my case, rather than seeing me as a mere opportunity to make money. That coupled with his confidence and caring nature really provided me with level of comfort that other attorneys were unable to provide. I was prompted to call Mr. Robles right away. Soon after a brief call, we scheduled an in-person meeting, where we went through the details of my case. He was very thorough with his explanations and the expectations that he set were realistic. He knew that this was a time sensitive matter for me, and was very empathetic towards that as well. Where do things stand now? My convictions have been dismissed and I truly feel I've been given another chance. I couldn't be thankful enough for the work that Mr. Robles put in and the care that he provided me throughout my case. I am also the type of individual who seeks a high level of reassurance with everything elaborated on as thoroughly as possible, and this was delivered at all times. As far as his rates go, I felt that they were absolutely reasonable, especially given the amazing results. Despite having worked with other attorneys in the past, Mr. Robles without question is my go-to attorney whenever I am seeking legal advice. So in short, my case had a favorable outcome, I was treated with the utmost care and compassion the whole way, and the rates were very reasonable. I am an exceptionally happy client to say the least and am glad that I decided to hire Raymund Robles as my attorney.

Best Lawyer for Petty Theft/Shoplifting in santa clara county
First and foremost, I would like to say thank you to Ray.I worked with Ray for PC 484/485 petty theft case in Santa Clara County. This is my second misdemeanor and I am extremely shameful and naturally petrified. I just googled and found Ray. To my luck, the first person I contacted was Ray, who made the whole process easy for me. There is a free consultation. He explained the case to me, the possible outcomes of the case and that he would help me throughout the whole process. Since I have a graduate degree and good job, he said he would personally discuss with DA of Santa Clara County and request the DA to give me a diversion program. Just like Ray mentioned he was able to convince the DA to enroll me in the diversion program. I just finished my Community Accountability class and completed my 16 hour community service and have my case closed. I would recommend Ray to anyone who is trouble and need a second chance to move forward in their life. He is very informative, talented, patient and very very responsive. I am so glad I was able to work with him and even though this incident leaves a bad memory in my life I am so glad I got a second chance and will make a better use of it. Thank you Ray

DUI
Ray Robles responded to my initial call quick to ask a few general questions and made the decision to meet due to my situation. It was a bit complicated due to an alleged refusal to submit which caused quite a bit of back and forth with the Courts and DMV. I believe his influence and demeanor assisted in reducing the sentence for which I was facing. He has further assisted in the follow-up with documentation for mu out of county SWAP program. I do recommend Ray Robles to those who are seeking legal counsel.

Great Lawyer
Ray Robles has been very good to me. My previous experiences with lawyers were horrible. They would not respond, listen or do anything. Ray went the extra mile to make sure everything worked out okay for me in the end!

Best lawyer I've ever met
Atty. Robles handled a case previously for a family member and was very satisfied with his services. I did not even think twice on who I would call when I needed someone to represent me. Raymund Robles is very professional, he quickly respond to every inquiry and he is very compassionate. He made me feel at ease inside the courtroom and explain every detail in my case.

Review on Raymund Robles
Amazing attitude right from the start till the end of the case. Easy to talk to and know how to calm down clients and give them a sense of assurance, exactly what is needed from an attorney. Have all the knowledge/expertise in the area to advice and help client cases to better resolutions. I am glad to have reached out to them and would now recommend their services to anyone in need of legal help.

The lawyer that you can count on
I was charged for child endangerment misdemeanor. At first meeting with Mr. Robles, he fully explained the possible outcomes, the weakness and strength of my case. He made me feel that he was pretty confident that my case would be dismissed without conviction, which turns out to be true. Although I have to take parenting class as court order, I am content with the result. I can see he worked very hard to try to get the best result for me. The whole process takes longer than a year. His charge is pretty reasonable. He is intelligent and diligent. He is very responsible for his client. Highly recommend.

Highly Recommend
Mr. Robles is a highly professional lawyer. He was empathetic to our situation. He promptly returned emails and phone calls. He kept us informed of what was happening in the case, from start to finish. Although the case wasn't won, he fought hard to minimize the outcome. We were very happy with the results. I would difinitely recommend Mr. Robles.

A fantastic defense attorney!!
My family hired Raymund Robles last year to help defend a family member in a criminal matter. We had never hired a defense attorney before and didnt know what to expect during our initial meeting. After meeting Ray we knew we found the right man for the job. He worked tirelessly for our behalf and always kept us updated on a regular basis. He formulated a solid defense for my relative and in the end we were happy of the results. My family and I are grateful for the work Ray did for us. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a good, honest and competent attorney.

Palo Alto Court Case
As far as confidentiality is concerned, I was able to fully trust Raymund with all matters pertaining to legal issues. He negotiated hard and was able to get the exact result I was looking for. Any time I had a question, he would always respond very promptly and would keep me updated on all matters that occured throughout my case. Raymund is very easy to get along with, which made it easy to fully disclose my information. He was very thorough in looking into my case, and was able to point out additional information that not only helped my case but also was able to educate me on the nuances. I highly recommend Raymund, he did exactly what he said he would do.

Review for my case
Ray was very helpful in getting my case dismissed. He was very patient and understanding, and helped me in my situation. He is also a very smart and sharp professional.
Posted by anonymous | March 2, 2010
Quick response and accomodating
I was referred to Ray by a friend. He called me fairly quickly after the referral and assessed the situation with me one step at a time and was very personable. I had never been in a situation with law enforcement before and, the police and DA lead me to believe a confession over a small thing would've meant my whole situation was finished, and they really had no intention of dropping the case. Instead of just shooing me off or immediately advising me to settle for a plea bargain, he made the time and effort to explore all other possible opportunities. He made things very easy to understand and did not throw all this technical legal jargon at me. He took care of my situation quickly while updating me on each action he was taking, giving me peace of mind. And in the end, I've finally been cleared. I would definitely recommend him!

Highly recommended
Mr. Robles knew we were interviewing several attorneys when we met to discuss our matter. He made no attempt to "take us off the market" by promising to deliver a specific outcome. He thoroughly discussed the facts of our matter, the identities of the decision makers on the prosecution side, and the procedures he would undertake if retained. After retaining Mr. Robles his efforts resulted in the city attorney office's decision not to file a complaint, therefore there was no arrest and no case to defend against. Mr. Robles delivered this result in approximately three to four working days.

A+ Lawyer = A+ Results... Attorney Robles is one of the top yet down to earth attorneys one can only wish to have on your side.
My experience with Attorney Raymund Robles has been exceptional; words cannot describe what Mr. Robles has done for me. His knowledge, work ethics, and values are truly the characteristics that set him apart from the rest. I first used Attorney Robles's services approximately 5 years ago and just last year we concluded another case that would help me gain my professional licenses. No attorney can promise you anything but Mr. Robles always made it a point to thoroughly discuss the case at hand and cover the possible outcomes of any events that might be incurred. Knowledgeable in his area of specialty is bar none when compared to the other attorneys I have ran across. I never hesitate to ask him any questions nor any concerns with my cases or foreseeable difficulties. I can only promise you that once under the wing of this true Professional, one has confidence knowing one of the best is working in part of your behalf. God Bless, and Thank you.
