Client Reviews for Summit Defense

by Katrina on Summit Defense
Location: Washington DC
Charge: Driving on suspended/probation violations

Rabin took my call at 8 am his time while he was driving to court (I called from across the country) and within hours he was in the court hearing and got my brother-in-law released from jail without bail! The case is just starting but already I know he’s in great hands. The fee quoted was completely reasonable and fair and the office was super about getting the paperwork done ASAP so Rabin could be there to represent my brother-in-law. The family thanks you!
