A criminal conviction can change a life forever. It can tarnish or destroy professional opportunities, personal relationships or a career. If you are faced with a serious criminal charge, you need more than a commonplace criminal defense lawyer. Serious charges demand a serious defense.
At the Law Offices of Robert Herz, P.C., we have been protecting and defending the rights of Alaskans since 1987. At our law office, we focus strictly on criminal defense. We represent individuals from all walks of life and from all ethnic backgrounds. The common factors are that each of our clients is facing a serious charge — and our belief that every one of our clients deserves a vigorous criminal defense.
"Most of my cases come from referrals either from other lawyers or from past clients happy with the work I did for them. I am well known and respected by judges in the state and by other lawyers. I am the lawyer other lawyers refer their clients to." -Attorney Robert M. Herz
Working Toward Success In Federal Court
Not all criminal defense lawyers are licensed to practice in federal court. Attorney Robert M. Herz is not only licensed, but also experienced and that experience can be critical. In federal court, the prosecutors tend to be better and the cases tend to be investigated more thoroughly by law enforcement, and the penalties imposed at sentencing are harsher.
Mr. Herz has earned recognition, over and over, as one of the best lawyers in Alaska. The National Trial Lawyers Association named Mr. Herz to their national list of TOP 100 Trial Lawyers in Criminal Defense. He has twice earned the National Academy of Criminal Defense Attorneys' "Top 10" attorney award, first in 2013 and then again in 2014. Mr. Herz has been rated as a BV Distinguished* lawyer by Martindale-Hubbell; has been recognized by Avvo by achieving their highest rating, "Superb;" and recently, Mr. Herz was selected to the Super Lawyers list in Alaska for Criminal Defense in 2014.
We are open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. We are available for after-hours and weekend meetings by appointment. Our office is located two blocks from the federal courthouse. Language interpretation is available by request.
