Best Lawyer in town

I had a great experience using A. Gasner as my attorney through a very messy and embarrassing incident. Even though we couldn't get it dropped or disposed we got a felony arrest reduced to a misdemeanor that all parties could agree on. I have alot of respect for him. I was treated with respect and dignity. He took a mess and made a masterpiece. He went above and beyond the call of duty. Completely unwinding and rewinding the incident into a lesser more accurate charge. I know we could of beat it at trial. I'm just not much of a gambler and couldn't risk jury trial.

He would of gladly fought it. I just decided to take, the deal, instead. Clear and concise representation. Paid one time. Honored to leave this review. I would recommend him for anything to anyone. Thank you, Gasner Criminal Law from the bottom of my heart.

Complicated Case of Extradition

We had a complicated case of extradition from UK to USA. We needed a good attorney who understood our case and give us best advice possible (with regards to wire/bank/credit card fraud cases). I found Adam Gasner online and from there on our case became a lot clearer and resolvable. From the moment I contacted to the end result, Adam have been very informative and attentive. He was always on hand to answer any queries/worries we had. We were very very happy with the outcome of our case and finally my husband has reunited with us. He represented my husband really well (I don't think anyone could have done it better), he put forward all points of the case with our benefit in mind. He kept us informed throughout of the case. We have been very lucky to have found Adam, he is a blessing in disguise. Thank you Adam for all your hard work. You very much deserve all the stars.

Legal counsel for a questionable charge

My son recently need legal counsel for a questionable charge. I contacted Adam the next morning and his service was indisputable in regard to being sensitive and listening. Although there were no commitments of a favorable outcome, i can say he was thorough in discussing costs and possibilities of the outcome without overpromising.

I recommend Adam and his firm highly.

A great job in resolving my daughter's case

Adam did a great job in resolving my daughter's case which led to all charges being dismissed. He legal skill are excellent as are his interpersonal skills. He communicated well with all courtroom personnel especially the DA which i think was instrumental in the judgment. He is a very good communicator and easy to talk with. He is both intelligent and “smart” as well. While his practice is busy he always returned phone calls in a timely manner. I strongly recommend him as a person and as an attorney!

Adam helped us with a case consultation.

Adam helped us with a case consultation. We were greatly impressed with his decency, integrity, and professionalism. It's really rare to find such a gem nowadays. If anyone needs legal help, we strongly recommend him.

Adam was great! Patient and thorough in his approach.

Adam was great! Patient and thorough in his approach. He was a pro in the process of defending my case, one where I was facing very serious false accusations. At the end... FULLY DISMISSED! Justice was served in some very tough inner-works of the complicated case where initially it looked as there was no hope for it. I would recommend to first try avoiding the court system, but if it's too late for that and you are here reading this, there's NO BETTER MAN TO DEFEND YOU than Adam Gasner! AND John (his Paralegal) is awesome as well!

Helpful with Initial Advice

Helpful with initial advice, and though they couldn’t answer my specific question, passed me on the details of someone else who might be able to help.

They are absolutely the best at what they do!

I had to recover some firearms that were taken by the police and it was nearly impossible to go through the hoops to get them back. Adam navigated the convoluted process on our behalf and finally got our property returned. If you have a complicated asset seizure issue and need someone who can get results, I highly recommend Adam and his team. They are absolutely the best at what they do!

Best attorney in town

Adam was so patient to listen my case and provided free consultation. That was so accurate and helped to handle the case better. He also recommended to follow up with him if I need any assistance further.

Top notch criminal defense attorney

I had the book thrown at me on a complicated felony criminal threat case and I was in really deep trouble before we found Adam. I was facing some very serious consequences and what he did for my case was nothing short of amazing. Of course he’s a smart, competent lawyer, but what really sets him apart is his personality and demeanor. He’s highly respected and is well connected to his colleagues, judges, and prosecutors. This definitely makes a difference.

When you’re surrounded by a storm, he keeps everyone calm and collected…including the prosecution and judges! The system is set up to be highly skewed towards an advantage for the prosecution who doesn’t really care about who you really are or what could happen to you as a result of their decisions, and you better have Adam as your advocate if you want to make sure you get the best possible result. To say he goes above and beyond is a huge understatement.

He worked on my case for years to get the result we were hoping for, and never once lost his passion for fighting on our behalf. He is a genuinely caring human being who always took the time to help us understand how to deal with things every step of the way. I would recommend Adam without reservation. He saved our family from disaster and got me the result we needed to move forward and put the whole ordeal behind us.

I Really Appreciate Him And His Services

Adam really came through for me and made things happen that I didn’t think possible. I really appreciate him and his services

Great attorney and a good man

My charges were very serious (at least from my point-of-view) and had the potential to disrupt my professional life and marriage. Thorough as I am, I consulted with 60+ attorneys in the bay area. The case went on for a full year. During the first 6 months, I formally retained and fired 5 defense attorneys (pretty good ones too). Wasted a lot of money and time.

One thing I realized during this journey is that finding a good criminal defense attorney is incredibly hard. Some of them were only interested in the money, some were too aggressive/impolite, some didn't have the intellect I was looking for, some displayed poor judgement, some didn't have personality/charisma, some didn't care a tiny bit about my psychological well-being and others were simply dishonest.

Then I met Adam. Thank god I did. Adam is everything you want in a criminal defense attorney. And I mean everything. I did doubt him a couple of times during the past 6 months, but boy was I proven wrong.

The way this case had gone, the chances of dismissal were close to zero (or so I thought). I was very close to taking the deal offered by the DA two months ago. It would have saved my marriage but my career would still be ruined.

This morning, Adam got all my charges dismissed. He helped save my professional life and marriage.

Adam is an excellent attorney. But I bet there are other excellent attorneys around. What's much more difficult to find is an excellent attorney who's a good man. If that's what you're looking for, hire Adam.

Exceptional Lawyer and Extraordinary Person

Sometimes bad things happen to good people. But you are lucky enough to meet a REAL Attorney who is very efficient and knowledgeable. Adam helped us tremendously. He was very patient and generous. He asked a lot of questions and he even asked specific questions that we forgot to bring to his attention, which were critical. He didn't speak with the confusing law terms and made sure we understood everything that was going on. We felt very confident that he really cares about his clients and is willing to fight for his clients. Adam is definitely an exceptional lawyer and an extraordinary person.

Top-notch Criminal Defense Expert and Advocate

Adam provided me with timely and expert advice regarding a potential case involving a relative that was very useful. After listening to the facts of the case and asking good clarifying questions, he provided me with an overview regarding the different ways in which the case was likely to evolve. In the end, he advised me that my relative likely did not need his services, but to stay in touch if the situation changed. For some context, I am an executive in Fortune 100 company and I have deal with top-notch (and some not so top-notch) lawyers on routine basis given the industry that I am involved with. So, in short, I have a good sense for what makes a great vs good vs average lawyer. I would consider Adam great based the experience that I've had with him and would recommend him to others. I hope that my relative will not need his services, but if they do, he is the first person I am going to recommend!

Thank you so much Adam

I can't express how thankful I am to Adam. I had a legal matter and didn't know where or who turn to. Adam took time out out of his busy day day to sit down and have a full conversation with me in regards to my case. My legal matter didn't fall into his line of practice but he guided me to the right attorney and also took more time out to walk her through my case. You don't find to many attorneys with the heart and passion for helping people but Adam has the heart and passion. Thank you so much Adam.

Sidney

To be quite honest, Adam's professionalism blew me away. He wasn't judgmental in the least bit and he took the time to understand the situation and went to bat for me as if we had known each other for over a decade.

If it wasn't for Adam and his team, I would not be here today typing this review while my baby boy is playing with the keyboard.

Thanks once again, Adam

Compassionate, hard working, understanding criminal defense attorney

Adam Gasner and John Thomas worked for over a year to help get my case dismissed for breaking my ex's cell phone, which was charged as domestic violence. They got me a defferred entry of judgement and after completing a years worth of therapy the case was dismissed with no probation or negative consequences on my record. Adam and John were great with communicating and keeping me updated on my case, I also didn't have to travel back to San Francisco for court appearances every time, which limited the impact on my work. This law office has been a life saver, I highly recommend them.

I would highly recommend him to anyone needing a lawyer

No one wants to need a lawyer, but when you do need one, it's important to have one you can trust and count on to always look out for your best interests. In addition to getting my charges dismissed, Adam handled my case in a very calm, professional manner. Exactly what you'd hope for with a criminal lawyer! He was very highly recommended to me, and I would highly recommend him to anyone needing a lawyer.

I am very happy with the work he did

I could not be happier with my decision to hire Adam Gasner as my attorney. In addition to representing me very favorably in court, Mr. Gasner also expertly negotiated getting me back some extremely valuable possessions that had been stolen from me. He went above and beyond what I hired him for to make this happen, and to say I am very happy with the work he did is an understatement. I don't know that a different lawyer would have been able achieve the positive results that he was able to, and I feel extremely fortunate to have him representing me.

THANKS ADAM YOU'RE THE BEST!

Spend my Saturday worried about a potential case. Decided to call Adam. He put my mind at ease. He listened to all my concerns and was very knowledgeable with his feedback. Now I'm off to enjoy the rest of my day. THANKS ADAM YOU'RE THE BEST!

Adam will spend the time to explain every step

Generally one doesn't come to a Criminal attorney by choice. Adam was recommended to me by a close family friend and am very lucky for the recommendation. Adam will spend the time to explain every step of the process and truly has his clients best interest in mind. I faced a serious misdemeanor charge based on a false police report by my ex. The courts in Marin County don't have enough to do and came after me more than either of us could have anticipated. Adam stuck by his fixed fee and was able to get the charge dismissed two days before the trial was scheduled to begin.

If you are in need of a criminal defense attorney take the time to talk to Adam.

Adam Gasner came highly recommended

Adam Gasner came highly recommended to me and I was very fortunate that I had the chance to consult with him on such a very short notice; given that I had only managed to contact him a few hours prior to my case, he was very willing to explain the procedure as well as what my plan of action should be -- throughout he was a great anchor to the situation. He was proactive with my case and notified me as soon as he found any changes to my case. Needless to say, it resolved without going to trial.

I hired Adam as my lawyer and it was the best decision I ever made

I worked for a Federal Law Enforcement agency in California. I was off duty I had easily the worst night of life. I was arrested and charged by the Federal Government for possession of narcotics over two years ago. The same night I had an accident where I was critically injured although luckily I have recovered fully. I was lost unable to find legal representation. I was referred to Attorney Adam Gasner's Law Office. I hired Adam as my lawyer and it was the best decision I ever made. My trial/Case took over 2 years to be decided. Adam was always there for me, to explain the case, my options, and the hope's he had for my case. Attorney Gasner worked well with the Federal prosecutors office and my case case was dismissed . I had penalties, both legally and physically, that I know I deserved and I paid for them. I would highly recommend the services of Attorney Adam Gasner. He will fight for you while using complete professionalism along the way.

He wanted the best for me

I am glad Adam Gasner was my lawyer. He stood by me for almost 3 years and came too all my court appearances. He always kept in contact with me and answered any questions I had. He always welcomed me to his office if I felt I needed someone to talk to. He really cared about my charges and fought for me. He wanted the best for me. I was charged with a felony and at the end of everything, Adam got it dropped. You cant beat that! Adam Gasner will fight for you till the end.

I am honored to say that I have shared the court room with Mr. Gasner

There are little things that are more fear inducing then being charged with a serious felony in criminal court- that is until you retain a serious felony defense attorney. Mr. Gasner is an extremely skilled attorney for defense against serious State and Federal crimes. Throughout Bay area court rooms, he holds a reputation for his outstanding work, professionalism and ultimately, the results he delivers to his clients. I am honored to say that I have shared the court room with Mr. Gasner and have witnessed his true effectiveness in communicating with Judges, Prosecutors and Jurors. If you are seeking a "heavy hitting" felony defense attorney, Mr.Gasner is for you.

I Truly Felt Like a Valued Client

I never imagined I would be in a situation where I needed a lawyer, but when I did I did not know the first place to start. I asked around and a friend recommended Adam. From the first time we met to discuss my case, Adam was the consummate professional. He explained the process, gave me piece of mind, and was available any time I needed reassurance or guidance. We even kept in contact by text a lot as I went through the process, which I preferred over emails / phone calls. I can tell you without a single doubt in my mind that Adam will go to bat for you and make sure your case has the very best possible outcome. I truly felt like a valued client and not like "just another case." Adam even worked with a PI to gather evidence, meticulously documenting facts, which helped tremendously. He is at the top of his game and worth every penny!! If you are ever in need of legal services, I recommend contacting him first!!

Adam Gasner is truly everything you could hope

Adam Gasner is truly everything you could hope to have in a lawyer: calm, intelligent, knowledgeable, compassionate, personal – a fighter. I hired him after a recommendation from a high school friend in the legal profession, following a decidedly negative experience with other counsel. The situation was initially very serious, but Adam skillfully navigated the legal channels, getting the charge reduced from felony to misdemeanor, and then securing an agreement with the other party and the judge that took my case within a hair of dismissal. Ultimately, it was expunged, and while that was not the outcome he sought, it was, I believe, a fair and just outcome. Recently, I went through an exhaustive background check process for a high-profile company in Silicon Valley and passed, which was followed by a job offer. Aside from his expertise, I felt a sense of calm and relief the moment I met Adam at his office. Subsequently, the visit to my house to meet my wife and analyze the nearby scene of my arrest, our phone conversations and court appearance all left me with a growing confidence that my life would return to normal with his help and professionalism. It has, and I’m truly grateful.

Thanks for your help, Adam

Adam was really straight-forwarded. It is very easy to get into contact with him. I was refereed by a few friends that had somewhat the same situation as I had but he was willing to help me out what things got tough. I'd rate a 5/5 and would go back! Thanks for your help, Adam.

Winning Lawyer

Adam represented me in three felony marijuana cases and each time the case was dismissed after Mr. Gasner's investigation showed the DA that I was a medical marijuana user.
In the most recent case, Mr. Gasner was successful in getting the SFPD to return 7.5 pounds that they had seized from me. This is the largest return of marijuana in California since Prop. 215 was enacted.
Adam is the most creative and diligent attorney I have ever used. He KNOWS how to win.
He also had my DUI in Napa dismissed!
