I retained Rabin Nabizadeh in Oct. 2008 after reviewing several different law firms in the bay area and reading many reviews. As soon as I met Rabin I knew he was the attorney for me. He is extremely intelligent, professional, and shows much concern for you and your case. My case took two years and Rabin was always there for me every step of the way. He explained the entire process to me throughout. Unfortunately, I was arrested, but Rabin already had the Bail Bonds gentleman calling my husband before I was even booked. Then the bail bonds gentleman stayed with my husband at my house until I was ready to be released from jail, which in all I only spent like 6 hours there. Finally when we went to court I was facing 3 years in prison and restitution of an obsene amount. Rabin was able to make a deal with the DA for no jail time, probation, and pay 1/4 of the restitution amount they originally asked for. After restitution was paid the felony was reduced to a misdameanor.
I have never been arrested before or had to go to court for anything other than a traffic ticket and I don't plan on it ever happening again. However, should it ever happen again, I can't think of any other attorney I would want fighting for my life, other than Rabin. I highly recommend him for anyone looking for an attorney.

Steve Davidson is highly recommended. He told me like is was. Steve said there would be no jail time - thank God - and I could get some much needed sleep over the weekend. He was hopeful my petty theft case would be dismissed. Steve got right on it with docs to the DA, pleading my case like a pro. In the end, dismissed it was! Steve is fabulous and definitely worthy of your trust. He also has a great sense of humor - and as we all know - a likeable personality goes very far in obtaining results. Cost was more than reasonable - only wish I could repay the great favor. Really, if convicted, my life would have been one above a bottomfeeder. I am so very greatful.

I can't say enough of the Summit Defense. Ever since my first phone contact, I was put on the line with one of the attorneys, Robert Preskill, who patiently listened the nightmare I just went through and put my mind on ease. (I was arrested for DIU and spend the night in prison). He even met with me and my husband even though he was not going to handle my case, just to give us peace of mind.
My attorney, Kimberly Lutes-Koths, was unbelievable. She is extremely smart, confident, professional and always available. She fought so hard for my case, even though some times I was ready to just give up. She knows her way around the courthouse in and out.
And the outcome of my case, well, I was acquited. She saved my license and my job.
I was hesitant since I am not from the area and I found them through a google search, but now, I will happily recommend them based, on my own unfortunate experience.

I was very pleased with (and pleasantly surprised by) my experience with Summit Defense. I know lawyers get a bad wrap but everyone, including my main attorney were genuine, good people who cared about me and my case. Now I have a second chance and I learned a big life lesson. Good job and thank you guys SOOO much! Writing a review is the least that I can do.

I am a business attorney who does not handle criminal cases. I had a client who was accused of embezzlement by a disgruntled ex-partner. Summit Defense successfully represented the client and was able to resolve the case while keeping the client's record and reputation clean throughout.

I got the 2 AM phone call. Luckily my son was okay but he had been drinking at a party and despite the fact that I have always told him to call me for a ride if he?d been drinking, he choose to drive home and got arrested for drunk driving. I am a single mom and had no idea what to do in this situation. Money is tight but I did not what my kid to have this on his record for life. Through the Internet I found the reviews about Summit Defense on City Search. Not knowing what else to do I called them at 6:00 am the next morning. I have to say I felt better right away. I didn?t have to miss any work. The attorney tried her best to get the charges dropped, but the DA would not drop it all together. In the end they were able to get the charges reduced due to the breath test being wrongly administered. My attorney also was able to convince the judge to allow my son to keep his drivers license. Thankfully my son gets a second chance. So here I am, adding my own experience to this review site.

I was arrested for domestic violence earlier this year. What happened was my wife and I got in a shouting match over money issues. I didn't hurt her, but I did push her away when she started throwing things at me. I regret doing this very much. She called the police and they arrested me. I have a good job in programming and was very scared that i might get fired. I wasn't sure who to talk to, but my immigration attorney who helped me get a green card referred me to my attorney Rabin Nabizadeh. Rabin got the charges dismissed and I didn't have to do the anger management classes that they originally wanted me to do. Needless to say, I would recommend this firm to anyone in a similar situation.

I am ashamed to say that I received a DUI three months ago after having a few too many beers after work and driving home. I didn't feel tipsy and drove under control. But, I was pulled over and given a breath test. Needless to say, I spent one of the worst nights of my life in the drunk tank. Until that point, I had never had a run in with the SFPD and didn't know what to do. I was reluctant to tell friends or relatives about my mess so I searched on the internet and found these guys.
One of their attorneys scheduled an appointment with me and explained that I should fight it.. I was sceptical and assumed that I would be guilty because of the breath test readout.
The good news was that after my police report came back they found that my breath test result was close to the legal limit. My attorney has connections with the DAs office and negotiated with them to get my case dropped to a wet reckless. This is much better than having a DUI. I am glad that I hired these guys and will never drink and drive again.
