Speechless
I was referred to Mr. Casper by another attorney. He is incredibly personable, responsive and cleared up my case in no time. I didn’t even have to appear in court and all charges were dropped. Absolutely amazing work, incredible man and would highly recommend. Cannot thank him enough!!

Mind Blown
I thought my life was over in a instant due to a unfortunate set of circumstances but Mr.Casper proved me wrong. Not only did he calm me through the anxiety and stress of the of the situation he also was extremely up front and honest about the possibilities of my case . Unlike most lawyers who tell you what you want to hear and then underdeliver he told me the facts and assured me that he would fight for me with all his skill and ability . In the end he produced the best possible outcome imaginable and I am eternally grateful for his diligence and service . Cannot say enough good things about Mr.Casper and his dedication to ethical defense ! Thank you Bob for saving my life

Excellent Lawyer
Bob is an excellent lawyer with a fantastic team. From the very beginning of my interaction and eventual decision to hire Bob, I knew that I was fortunate to have found the best legal counsel available in the Bay Area. His command of the law and the intricacies of the legal system are outstanding. From the very beginning, my case benefitted from highly interactive investigation of the facts and extremely helpful legal counsel. The end result consisted of a dismissal of the case and, most importantly, a just and fair outcome. I am profoundly grateful.

What qualities do you want to see in your legal counsel to ensure a successful outcome for you?
I spoke to Robert Casper in the interview process and found him to be professional wise & patient . Knowledge is power....and Casper has both because of his knowledge & his experience . If I were DA or an asst DA ....there are a lot of lawyers I'd rather go against before I would want to go against Casper. The guys a gentleman; he's unperturbed .... he doesn't get frantic; he doesn't get edgy ...and he comes highly recommended by his peers… Why? Because his demeanor is professional ; his knowledge substantial ; his communication skills .. smooth, articulate and with an implied invitation for you to agree with his viewpoint...it doesn't matter if he's talking to Charlie Manson , Mary the librarian or a cop on the street.... he blends his message based on who he is communicating with .... he worked with me on Saturday and Sunday and took time away from his family and his daughter to do so.... The guy goes the extra mile ....and he's thorough....and he's pricey ....because you get what you pay for in life and with Casper he's worth it....when you talk to the guy you just know..::0 you just know there are NOT going to be 12 jurors who disagree with this guy .... in my estimation, he's got a quiet tenacity and balls which makes him a formidable opponent and a good guy that I want on my side of the trenches..... if you're looking for a pitbull with brains… And you can afford him, … I highly recommend Robert Caspar.

Wonderful Lawyer
Bob is a real gem. He is kind, patient, a good listener - but most of all, he gets the job done - most often, better than you'd expected. He got my "felony" reduced to being completely dismissed, and for that- I consider him a true miracle worker. The case was many years ago, but he's always available (as I am a fmr. Client) for minor legal questions, etc. In my humble opinion, Bob Casper is everything you could ever ask for in an attorney. I would recommend him with zero hesitation.

Amazing Lawyer and a very kind and helpful individual.
After getting a DUI, I truly feared for the worst, (and rightfully so). I faced the possibility of serious legal repercussions as well as expulsion from my dream school. Put simply, it was the most stressful and uncertain time of my life. Robert Casper dramatically improved the situation and not only prevented the worst possible outcome, but also ensured that I was not expelled from my University, allowing me to continue my education and eventually graduate. Honestly, I can not recommend Bob Casper enough,

Robert Casper is truly an amazing lawyer. He was extremely responsive, knowledgeable, and gave great insight and suggestions for my situation. I would highly recommend him to friends and family.,

Thank you, Bob.
I was faced with a heavy case involving charges never imaginable to me because I had never been in trouble with the law nor was I entirely at fault. Upon reviewing my case Bob was very helpful and most of all he was thorough. He put my fears aside and informed me on things I didn't know about. My case was resolved fairly thanks to Bob's diligence and forethought. I trusted Bob because he had respect for me and my fiancee's best interests and acted upon his experience.

Competent Help in Difficult Times
A family member needed a good criminal defense attorney on a misdemeanor charge. Mr. Casper and his partner were responsive, supportive and quickly grasped the picture of the client's strengths and weaknesses. He is exceptionally good at understanding and adeptly representing clients with emotional or mental disabilities (conditions often present in those who land in the criminal justice system.) With Mr Casper and his partner's aid, the case was dismissed. Without it there would have been a protracted court proceeding, with an unpredictable outcome. It was the great reputation of Mr Casper and his partner that made the DA pay closer attention to the case and take the time to review essential evidence that he would have otherwise ignored. Its a compliment to Mr Casper and his partner, but a sad comment on our justice system.
