    I was arrested in Merced in December 2014. I had never been arrested before, at 36 years old, I didn't know what to expect. I was charged with possession/sales of Marijuana. I hired Mr. Tenenbaum to represent me. Before I hired him, I was very anxious to say the least. He immediately told me not to worry. He told me he would get me on an ankle monitor program with house arrest, and that I would still be able to work and that I would serve no jail time. I live out of state (New Mexico) Everytime I met with Mr. Tenenbaum, he always asked how my family and I were doing. I know he was just doing his job, but I felt like he genuinely cared. When all was said and done Mr. Tenenbaum did exactly as he said he would. When I met with my probation officer he told me that in all his years working there, he had never even heard of anyone getting out of state ankle monitored house arrest. He actually said to me "you must have a great lawyer"! 3rd party confirmation! I served 2 months on the ankle monitor, and after that I have 3 years unsupervised probation that's it! I highly recommend Mr. Jeffrey Tenenbaum

    We hired Mr Tenenbaum to handle our family members case which he was facing life in prison for some serious charges. Mr Tenenbaum and his team went to work and got the case dismissed. He is very Professional and gets the job done. He worked with our family and goes above and beyond to help. I would definitely recommend him if you need help with a serious criminal case.

    Just recently my husband and I were involved in a criminal case. We walked into his office and he was friendly and put us at ease but didn't make any promises. Mr. Tenenbaum was personable but professional. We were very pleased with the outcome of our case. It was a relief to know that someone that was familiar with the judicial system would be representing us. Our only regret is that we didn't contact him sooner in the process. I feel confident he would've had charges dropped back in October. Instead my husband and I were stressed for 4 unnecessary months. Don't be cheap hire Mr. Tennenbaum!

    I could not have imagined a scarier situation then being accused of something that you did not do...and then it happened to my child, and I knew true panic. My son was accused of a sexual crime that he did not commit, and if convicted, could change his life forever. I was beyond frightened and desperate and had NO IDEA what I could expect in that situation. From the moment I met with Jeff he was informative, helped set realistic expectations and was calming and confident. Over a 5 month period he helped us navigate the Merced Juvenile Court system very efficiently, always keeping us informed of updates. He has a great deal of experience, knowledge and long time working relationships that he used to get my son a fair and just outcome. Eventually the charges were dropped and my son is moving on with his life, but Jeff's representation and help were invaluable to our family and I cannot thank him enough. I would absolutely recommend him.

  • TOTAL SCAM!!

    I WOULDN'T RECOMMEND THIS GUY TO MY WORSTE ENEMY!!
    HE'S A TOTAL SCAM!!

    This so called lawyer, is also a
    FREE PUBLIC DEFENDER for merced county!!

    knowing that now,
    WHY WOULD YOU EVEN THINK OF GOING TO HIM AND PAYING HIM
    WHEN YOU CAN HAVE HIM ASSIGNED FOR FREE!!!

    too bad we found out when it was already too late!!
    DONT LET IT HAPPEN TO YOU!!

    he totally took advantage of the case i asked him to represent!
    FOR TWO MONTHS, every time i tried to have any communication with him i rarely ever could!!
    the few times i could actually reach him he NEVER had any clear answers to simple questions!!
    he basically had everyone in the dark!!!

    other public defenders would visit their assigned clients at least once a week and discuss their cases and give them updates!!
    this guy NEVER showed up to see his client!!

    the plea deal he gave was ridiculous for what the case was!!
    he went from giving a deal with multiple years in prison, to coming back within 5 min. and saying you get out tonight if you sign but you have to agree to a felony charge..
    he let the courts give his innocent client a FELONY for a case that HE CLEARLY KNEW had been blown out of proportion!!

    HE DIDN'T TRY TO FIGHT THE CASE FOR ONE MINUTE!!

    Basically all this "lawyer" did was get his money and run!!

    i don't know how much more clear i can make it,
    JUST DONT TRUST THIS MAN!!

    Jeffrey A Tenenbaum’s response: “I am sorry you feel that way. We did everything we could to please you over a long period of time. As for the contract my office has with Merced County, it is no secret that the Court appoints me to represent some defendants who cannot afford a lawyer in felony matters. I am not able to pick these cases and defendants cannot choose me. Those people are then ordered by the Court to reimburse the County for legal fees depending on income levels.”

    Mr. Tenenbaum goes above and beyond!! He made us feel confident in his ability to get my husband cleared, which he did. He was always available when we needed to talk. I definitely would recommend him he is great at what he does and makes you feel comfortable during such a horrible time. Thank you so much we appreciate everything you did for us!!

    I am pleased to be writing a review for such an outstanding attorney! My Husband was falsely accused of some terrible crimes which could have resulted in him spending the rest of his life in prison. Mr. Tenenbaum went above and beyond in his pursuit for the truth. Throughout this extremely stressful process Mr. Tenenbaum kept me informed and was honest about possible outcomes of the case. The amount of dedication he invested in proving my Husband's innocence was monumental. I feel as though Mr. Tenenbaum treated my family as more than just clients and exceeded my expectations of an attorney times ten. Though the process was stressful and emotionally draining the words "not guilty" when spoken at my Husband's trial were the most beautiful words I have ever heard. Watching Mr. Tenenbaum in action during the closing statements of my Husband's trial was exhilarating. He has this innate ability to connect with everyone involved, most importantly the jury. He is confident in his presentation, fluid in his speech, and is relatable and likeable. Mr. Tenenbaum literally gave us our lives back. I highly recommend his services to anyone. Mr.Tenenbaum is an attorney you can put your faith in. Thank you so much Mr.Tenenbaum words can not express how grateful we are!!

    Mr. Tenenbaum is an excellent lawyer. This was the second time in my life that I was in the position of needing a lawyer. I was involved in a custody issue with family in Merced but live out of the area and did not know who to turn to for help. Mr. Tenenbaum was responsive, calming, decisive and fair. He was honest in explaining the local process and did not try to paint a pretty picture but gave me an honest assessment of the possible outcomes of the case. I felt he was responsive to questions I had and willing to hang in there until the final resolution of the case. I highly recommend him as a lawyer and if I am in need of a lawyer in Merced again, he is the first one I will call
