STRENGTH IN NUMBERS

Our team of attorneys understand legal theory and, more importantly, we understand the criminal justice system tasked with carrying out this theory. However, no single attorney knows every part of the law. Often, an attorney will benefit from the perspective of fresh eyes or the wealth of prior experience or motions bank used by other attorneys. Our ability to rely on each other’s prior criminal defense experience, knowledge, and prior success allows us to quickly assert your rights and assess the various legal and factual issues of YOUR unique case. This TEAM APPROACH allows us to depend on each other’s unique and diverse experience to build a practical, effective and result oriented defense strategy. Our ability to tap into the wealth of knowledge of two former District Attorneys, a police officer, or the 120 years of cumulative experience in criminal court will translate to better results for you and your family.

I strongly recommend the Summit Team and especially Rabin and Tennille. You can truly depend on them. Give them time to work on your case. Summit Defense will fight for you in the court.

Tennille Duffy was exceptional. She worked very hard and in a timely manner. She answered all my calls swiftly. She interviewed the key witnesses to obtain crucial evidence. She kept us informed during the investigation and took care of the case professionally! Because of her exceptional work, the charge was dismissed even before the court hearing. The truth had finally prevailed. We are thrilled that our family member can finally move on from the nightmare of their wrongful accusation, and they were saved from having their life ruined forever.

We first met Rabin Nabizadeh in his office. He was very straightforward and honest with us. He didn't have any hidden fees or charges and everything was clearly explained! He organized a great team with an experienced lawyer, Tennille Duffy, to handle this sensitive case, assisted by another lawyer, Ryan McHugh, who knew the local district very well. In addition, the private investigator, a former policeman, was appointed as an investigator for the case.

From my heart and soul I knew that our family member was innocent. To prove this, we would need witness's testimonies as well as other solid evidence. Thorough investigations were crucial to win the case.

Our family member was falsely accused of a very serious charge. We hired Summit Defense after searching several law firms and interviewing many lawyers. Most of the law firms we looked into had only one or two lawyers working in various law fields. We decided on Summit Defense Attorney because it was exclusively a criminal defense firm; most importantly, it has been collaborating with former prosecutors, police officers, and hearing officers in many cases, and it had more lawyers who collaborated as a team.

Echoing all the other positive reviews here, this is truly the best defense firm around the area. I was in a tricky situation awhile back and am extremely grateful to have found the folks here. The attorney I worked with was extremely professional and reliable, and he truly went above and beyond to help me. I don't think I would have have gotten to where I am now without his help. As a firm, all the attorneys are all very experienced (e.g., familiar with the local dynamics, years spent in the courtrooms) and will always fight for you. Without a doubt, I would recommend Summit Defense to anyone who is looking for an attorney and trust the people here to do an exceptional job.

Words cannot express the professionalism you and your firm has given us in our time of need. Ravin, Richard and Especially to Tennile really top notch, very kind, understanding and very helpful. Calls, emails etc… were beyond our expectations. We will gladly recommend your services when and where applicable.
Again, thank you for all you do and my best wishes to you and yours.

I don’t normally say this, but Mr. Reilly, you are always welcome in this courtroom. I thought you were a consummate professional. You were prepared, you were intelligent. You represented your client perfectly. And you squeezed everything out of this case that you possibly could and I think the defendant is lucky to have you.
