    I am here, writing on the behalf of Mr. Cyrus Tabibnia. From the very first moment we formally introduced ourselves to one another, I felt nothing but sincerity and authenticity from this man. At that very moment I knew, that this was the person ideal to represent me and to do diligence. In which in fact he did do so. He was able to significantly get my DUI and Car Theft charges reduced from felonies to misdemeanors and with one case, completely dismissed. I was not only impressed and satisfied completely, but I was not suprised one bit with the outcome. I highly suggest this gentlemen if you are in deed seeking counsel from someone who legitimately cares, and who will go the extra mile and above and beyond for you.

    I was referred to Cyrus Tabibnia through a friend of mine that Cyrus had assisted in the past. The minute that I sat down with the attorney Cyrus Tabibnia for a consultation. I knew that he was the right attorney for my case. I noticed that he was very thorough and technical from the very beginning of our interaction. I was facing deportation for an assault case in which I was clearly defending myself. The ending result was a dismissal and removal of a restraining order after proving that it was a clear case of self defense. Now, thanks to Cyrus I can clearly go back to work and my family. Without worrying about this incident staying on my record. I strongly recommend Cyrus Tabibnia to anyone that is facing legal issues.

    I’m writing this review with tears in my eyes. I can’t find words to describe my gratitude to Lawyer Cyrus. He became the Cyrus that conquered the city of Babylon who built Jehovah’s house in Jerusalem during biblical times. He gave hope and a new life beginning to the Jews. This is exactly what Lawyer Cyrus meant to my family. He was always wearing his armor ready to defend my husband. This times were very difficult because it happened during the pandemic. I just want to say that he always made me feel like I had a warrior who knew exactly what to say to make my stress, worries and pain go away. And, most importantly he knew what he was doing. After, a battle of almost two years, he did it!!!! He won!!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!

    My name is Salvador. I was charged with a DUI case in 2021. A close friend of mine recommended that I hire Cyrus Tabibnia. My friend had previously hired Mr. Tabibnia for a criminal case and was very satisfied with his work. I consider myself very blessed and grateful to have met and worked with Mr. Tabibnia. He was a very effective lawyer with great customer service and he obtained excellent results for me on my DUI case and on my DMV license issue. I was very concerned about this case for many reasons, but Mr. Tabibnia explained everything, put me at ease and got me a wonderful outcome! I highly recommend Mr. Tabibnia if you need a great lawyer!"
