Attorney Ross Pytlik’s legal knowledge, sensitivity, ethics, and courtroom skills are truly the “best-of-the-best”. Ross was prompt returning our calls, and thorough explaining the legal implications of a family situation. Ross developed, explained and implemented a very skillful legal strategy that was successful, and provided an opportunity for a second chance toward a productive life. Attorney Pytlik’s work literally changed our lives, and we are forever grateful to Mr. Pytlik.

I was so grateful for Summit Defense's extraordinary work. Even during this hard time of Covid-19, that I knew court may not be opened, Rabin still managed to work on my case, got me a hearing date and got my case solved at the best result I can wish for. Please do your self a favor, go to the best - Summit Defense so you can be sure your case will be taken care and you will get the best result possible

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!

I got referred to Summit defense by a friend of mine from work. Bruce Kapsak and Rabin Nabizadeh are so great to work with. Their knowledge of the law is next to none and their rates are fair and reasonable. They don't charge me for every email or call like typical law firms. In the end they got me the best deal I could possibly get. This office has a whole team that are compassionate and caring. I couldn't be more pleased that I chose this firm. On one hand, I truly hope never to see or talk to them again and on the other hand I will miss them, as they made me part of their family and I will miss that connection.

Mr. Rabin Nabizadeh at Summit Defense is an astounding attorney. Talk about someone who knows bed side manners. He treats his clients like they are actual people - not a criminal. I am blown away by the way he presents himself in Court! You can tell how much respect he has from the Judge, bailiffs and even the apposing counsel. Anyway - thank you Summit for introducing me to Mr. Rabin - I am forever thankful.

I was referred to Jim Riley by a business associate. He was really easy to work with and explained the trial process and options available to me very logically so that I could understand what would be the best option for me. Riley is an excellent trial lawyer. He is understated but incredible in the courtroom. He is very knowledgeable and professional. I highly recommend him.

We were in a real pickle when our Daughter had very serious legal trouble all the way across the country. Summit defence was there for us. They came very highly reccomended by a friend of a friend. Our Lawyer was totally accessible and was a great support for her and our whole family! Thank you Rabin and Summit defense!

This was my first DUI charge so I was obviously nervous and uneducated about the process. After come online research, I contacted Summit Defense and was put in contact with attorney Collin Moore. Though this was a very long 10-month process, I was kept well informed by Collin. He was always available when I needed to speak to him and was extremely patient with me. Although I was over the legal limit at the time of the sobriety test, Collin was able to reduce the charge to a dry reckless driving conviction, meaning a DUI charge was not put on my record, I served no jail time, did not have my license suspended and did not have to go to court mandated DUI classes, which can total as much as 40 hours for a wet reckless driving conviction This verdict was almost a complete victory for me. I had not heard of Summit Defense before the charge, but I am sure aware of them now. This is a first-class law firm. Collin was a professional from the start. I was extremely pleased with my verdict and cannot thank Collin and his staff enough. If you are charged with a DUI, you must call Summit Defense!

Rabin was not my first experience with a criminal lawyer, but was certainly the best. Never before have I found the combination of competence and compassion, which is rarely found in professionals today.
Frankly, getting arrested is a frightening experience, especially for someone who is living with the guilt of knowingly making a mistake. He handled my case as if it were unique, and to some extent, I felt as if I had serious limitations in what I could except as a penalty. Rabin worked tirelessly on my behalf appearing in court, taking the time to meet with me as needed to explain my the details of my case, & using his knowledge/skills to research regarding my limitations until he was finally able to negotiate and to\ reach an agreement to have me leniently penalized.
His fee, set at our first meeting, was fair and affordable and he worked well beyond what I thought I had paid him for.
I can say with absolute sincerity that this man helped me when I needed it most. I will never forget his kindness nor fail to appreciate his ability! Thank you so much Rabin and the entire Summit Defense team!

Incredible! I can't say enough good things about Rabin Nabizadeh. No-nonsense, straight to the point, very professional, easy to reach and truly cares! Would highly recommend in a heart beat to anyone looking for representation.

After waiting for six months for lawyer to get the case moving, we hired Richard Weese and saw results almost right away. He was able to understand complicated facts quickly and added my case to calendar for bail reduction. He fought for us at every step of the way. The immigration attorney really worked wonders and years later, I am sober, have a green card and a family. I owe it all to this firm.

Called a bunch of lawyers and got all sorts of quotes and promises. Rabin was different. I actually never hired this firm because he kept telling me I didn’t need a lawyer so not sure about skills but highly recommend for honesty.

Very professional team of criminal lawyers. Easy to reach and support staff (Jessica) was first rate. Thank you for not giving up on my son and fighting for him despite all the issues presented.

Would give them a hundred stars if I could.
It took 8 months to dismiss my case and throughout the whole process, this firm went above and beyond to get an amazing result and give me updates and communication.

Ms. Duffy is a legal giant who is fearless and by far the most prepared at any hearing. She managed to ridicule the District Attorney in front of the judge and dismiss the case. Very impressed with the weekend calls for clarification.

Summit Defense did an awesome job representing me. 5 stars is an understatement for this firm! I was very pleased with my whole experience with them. They were professional, to the point, and seemed to genuinely care about my well being. Their experience with criminal law and the court systems in the Bay Area showed in the work they did. And when I say work I mean they put in relentless WORK for me. They fought diligently for me and guided me in making choices that were in my best interest. My main goal was to get the best possible outcome in the situation I had gotten into and so was theirs. I don’t know where I’d be or how bad things could have turned out had I not hired Summit Defense. I am very grateful for Rabin and his team.

These guys are the real deal. Good communication and they get results. I am relieved I found Mr. Moore. Special note for Shivan his paralegal for pulling off miracle after miracle and making sure documents were available even if I kept dropping the ball

I must be the most difficult client any lawyer ever had. I was a nervous wreck and needed weekly assurances and support. I can’t say enough about Rabin and especially Collin Moore who really went to bat for me and saved my medical career. Keep these guys on speed dial.

Amazing lawyers! Got my bail reduced and I was out while they did their thing and managed to do more than I expected. I owe my life to Rabin Nabizadeh.
