Robert M Helfend has been fighting tirelessly for his clients rights and freedom since 1984. Here are some reviews from happy clients over the years. Reviews

Direct and Honest

“Robert Helfend represented my case from start to end. He literally drove out to meet with me in person several times and handled my case in a very professional manner in which he always told me the truth and what to expect. Several years ago, I made a mistake and was willing to face my penalties but not without professional help. Since I have never broken any laws, this was my first time offence. Robert Helfend was able to keep me out of prison, and pro-long the case enough for me to make proper arrangements. At the end I pleaded guilty and instead of serving years of prison time, I was given the following: 1. One year of “in-house” jail which is a local community near my home where I was able to continue to go to work but live at this apartment looking complex 2. make restitution payments back to company I took from 3. of course 3 years probation 4. eligible for felony to be reduce to misdemeanor upon all conditions met especially paying back all restitution. I followed all the court obligations and after three years Robert Helfend represented me again for my pen code 1203.4 and got my sentence reduce from felony to misdemeanor. Although I hope I never ever need another criminal attorney, I cannot imagine what life could have been without his help. Thank you Robert Helfend.”

Hiring Rob was the best decision I ever did. Highly recommend !!

“I dropped my old “soft” criminal attorney and upgraded to HELFEND. Rob was confident from the very beginning all the way to the end. He met with me, heard my side, and quickly assessed a brighter future for me. He gave me hope Vs. my last attorney who depressed me. You can definitely see the years of experience behind everything he does and in the way he speaks with others on behalf of you.  Best part about Rob was his humor. The guy is funny. He’s actually a pretty cool dude on a personal level. Always smiling and in control. Great attorney overall. Highly recommend. No complaints. He reduced my charge big time. Reduced to the lowest misdemeanor of a different category. No violence on my record in the end. Had a small court fee and anger management classes. Soooo glad I hired him. It could have been so much worse. Maybe even 1 -2 years in jail.”

A Fantastic Criminal Defense Lawyer

“Robert was my criminal defense lawyer in a traffic case. Having never being involved in anything like this before, Robert continuously reassured me that everything would work out and that he was working hard to get the case settled in my favor. Robert is a straight shooter, easy to talk to, and really takes care of his clients inside and outside the courtroom. Ultimately my case was dismissed, thanks to Robert’s great work.”

Saved my bacon!

“Mr. Helfend absolutely saved my bacon. After finding myself charged with fraud, I was terrified. I have never been introduced to the legal system from this side before, and it was unsettling. However, Robert was able to calm me down and help me figure out my situation. He even got the case dropped before trial! I don’t want to be in another situation where I need a criminal defense lawyer, but if I ever am, I know who I will call!”

“My Attorney, Robert Helfend did an amazing job in assisting me with my criminal case, as a first time criminal I was extremely nervous and scared. He assured me I had nothing to worry about and he was right! His smooth demeanor and expertise was apparent in the court room ,he came highly recommended to me from another attorney who thought Mr. Helfend would be able to help me and he did!
I can’t thank you enough for everything you did to defend me and have my case dismissed, big game changer! Thank you so much”

  •  Jeanne, Palmdale CA

“Best attorney in California!!!! I had a previous attorney, who did absolutely NOTHING for me in my situation. $7500 later I will never go back to them again. Robert Helfend is a professional. He fights for you. He knows what he’s doing and will do anything he can do to keep you out of jail! I would highly recommend his services. He has been doing this for a long time and it shows. I am so happy to finally have ease of mind with him as my representative. He knows what he’s doing and doesn’t B.S. you. If I could give him more than 5 stars, I would. Thank you Robert for everything and showing me the options I never saw from my previous lawyer. I will never use a different attorney. He knows it all.”

  • Fabian, Calabasas, CA

“I come from a family of lawyers but honestly I must say Robert Helfend is by far the brightest attorney I have ever met. I met Robert last week with a friend of mine that is in legal trouble. Robert listened carefully to everything my friend had to say. During our first meeting, Robert had pieced together my friends entire situation, in a matter of minutes, and had logically proven why my buddy should not be in legal trouble. Robert Helfend is very smooth at what he does. What he envisions and wants directly falls into place. I must also mention that he is such a kind person that treats his clients with the utmost respect and compassion. Most importantly, Robert aggressively defends his clients and he utilizes every legal option that benefits his clients. Robert Helfend is the best criminal defense attorney you can ask for.”

  • Eli, Los Angeles CA

“The level of professionalism, dedication, relentless pursuit of Mr Helfend’s extremely chest like mentality is unmatched & surpasses any defensive attorney known to man. He is the modern day Johnny Cockran.  If this was NASCAR, Mr Helfend would single handedly drive the car & be the pit crew at the same time. When everyone else gave me poor advice, Mr Helfend was very knowledgeable as well as resourceful. His website is worded very modest, because all of the positive statements are complete understatement when you compare it to the “Helfend Experience.” He has a complementary way of taking care of his clients.”

Best Wishes

“I have had several attorneys over the years and not one has performed as promised – always disappointed. Rob is amazing to watch in the court room. He prepares meticulously, is sharp, professional and NOT afraid to confront when necessary. On a scale of 1 to 10, I wouldn’t hesitate to give him a 20!”

  •  Leslie, CA

“I have experienced many attorneys and as with most things you many times don’t know what your money gets you till it’s too late. Mr. Helfend is the best I’ve seen procedurally in the courtroom when and where it actually counts. Rob is not intimidated by anyone or anything in the courtroom and leaves no stone unturned and that was very reassuring to me. I’m very relieved but not surprised by the great results of his work on my behalf.”
