I had never hired a Los Angeles criminal lawyer before, but this firm did a great job. Robert was very reliable and effective at clearing up a case in LAX Airport court for me. I have a nursing license, so this whole thing caused a lot of stress for me. I recommend wholeheartedly to anyone needing a professional defense attorney.

Thank you Tsion Chudnovsky for everything you did for me! It was a pleasure working with you. And I cannot thank you enough for how you resolved the bogus domestic violence charge I was dealing with. You never gave up and made me feel protected every step of the way.

Excellent DUI attorneys! They saved my license and got my DUI dismissed due to a police mistake! They saved me a lot of fines and my visa. Fair price and they were very professional and great to work with. No drama just results and they explained everything to me really good.
