  • Alison F Silber

    I refer my clients to Attorney Rakhlin for criminal representation, because he treats them well and defends their matters successfully. Most recently, I referred an unlikely client who had been framed in a complicated criminal matter. She was very pleased with his representation and he resolved the entire case in two hearings.
