Posted by a client
To my surprise a family member who has a history of being violent and controlling had filed a restraining order against me so I would not be able to visit my aging sickly mother in Boston . Since no aggression had happened from my side I knew this was filed to get control over my mother and her property.
I the next day googled falsely accused restraining order and Irvin Rakhlin was the first to come up, he immediately gave me the confidence that he knew how to deal with this type of case . After talking with 5 other lawyers I came back to Irvin due to his experience with these matters and so happy that I did.
Once in the court room I did not have to say a thing. He guided me to stand tall and strong and not react to my family members lies and outrages claims. Irvin's cross examination allowed for so may large holes to be put into the plaintiff's statements about me , and shed light on the truth of the judge to see clearly this was a case of one family member trying to control over the property over my elder mother.
Irvin is very strong lawyer with great questioning skills , I felt totally protected and very secure this lawyer. I pray I never need this type of service again but if I did I would hire Irvin again. Thanks!

Wow! I am stunned! was so afraid of facing 2 very old criminal charges in Boston. I live on the west coast and don't have the ability to get to Boston too often, plus I was truly afraid to go to court.
Irv got my warrants removed (One which never had a trial or disposition! The judge could have ordered me to appear!)
Court #1, Warrant 1. $1800 in restitution dismissed, case closed warrant removed.
Court #2, Warrant 2. Criminal charges of operating on suspended license - DISMISSED, not guilty on the remaining charges (4 civil infractions).
My only costs besides legal fees (very reasonable and worth every cent!) were $200!
Irv Rahklin helped me get a part of my life back that was causing so much grief, angst, and sleepless nights. I can't begib to thank him enough!

Irv does not talk to you frequently and he seldom has the time to send numerous lengthy emails to try and rake up a huge bill for time spent on inconsequential conversations over phone and email. This helps not only to keep legal costs down, but keeps Irv pre-occupied with what he ought to do for his clients, that is, to help vindicate our stand in Court. I spoke to Irv once when he first submitted appearance in court on my behalf and once again when he sent me an email informing me that the criminal case has been unconditionally dismissed! Thanks a lot!

Mr. Rakhlin was really amazing in handling and convincing the judge in dismissing my restitution of $40K, which i've been reimbursing slowly and painfully for the past 15 years.
From the first time I spoke to Mr. Rakhlin, he took the time to listen to my case and gathered all the pertinent details. He then came back to me with a well thought out approach. Even though Mr. Rakhlin is a very pragmatic person, his confidence and bright personality made me believe that it would be possible to somehow convince the judge to at least reduce the restitution amount.
After only 2 court dates, Mr. Rakhlin skillful speech and pertinent reasoning convinced the judge that enough was enough...that I've paid my debt...and that it was fair for me to be set free of this heavy weight I've been carrying for so long.
Mr. Rakhlin has not only just saved me $40K, but also removed wound that was constantly causing me stress and grief.
And for that, I'm forever grateful and feel so blessed to have met him and hired his top notch services.
He did a far better job than my first lawyer that was one of those famous/expensive lawyers who are too busy to see you.
I would definitely recommend Mr. Rakhlin to anyone needing a serious/professional/skillful lawyer.

Mr. Rakhlin is a top notch attorney! He's straight forward, honest, and very attentive when you speak to him, he'll listen to you and then tell you best case, worse case scenarios, and does what he needs to get the verdict you want or hope for. 5 stars isn't enough for him in my opinion.

I contacted attorney Rakhlin for the first time late on a Saturday night to seek his legal representation on the upcoming Tuesday morning at a court hearing. He responded to my request early on the following Sunday morning. After discussing over the phone the details pertaining to my case, he explained to me what his approach method would be to address the situation and what the possible outcomes could be. I could immediate tell he was very knowledgeable about the matter. I truly appreciated the time he dedicated to explain to me very carefully the whole situation I was involved in. From the moment we stepped inside the court on the day of the hearing I could tell he was prepared to put up a good defense on my behalf and would not settle easily unless he got the best possible deal for me. He represented me on the court hearing and managed to dismiss my case prior to arraignment with the NO criminal record. I hope not to ever find myself involved in a criminal case, but should I ever require legal representation again I would not doubt for a second to contact attorney Rakhlin. I would most definitely recommend his services to anyone in need of outstanding legal representation.

I contacted Attorney Rahklin for help with an old matter that needed resolution and within a couple of weeks, he got exactly the outcome I hoped for..I never even had to meet with him. He is so easy to deal with and straight forward--and just a nice guy. You will not be disappointed!

I would reccommend Attorney Rakhlin to anyone facing a criminal charge. He was attentive, thoughtful, informed and confident, which helped to ease my uneasiness of the situation. He was there for me when I needed him, and instead of feeling bullied by the system, I felt as though I had a smart and capable champion on my side. In the end he had the case dismissed and helped me overcome the emotional hurdle that court proceedings can be. Irv was professional and prepared, while understanding of the situation. Contacting him was easy and there was no miscommunication between us. I would reccommend his legal services to anyone who finds themselves in a similar position as I.

I was referred to Irv Rahklin from another attorney in Boston, that spoke very highly of him. From the first meeting, I knew that his colleagues' praise was accurate. Attorney Rahklin was extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of my criminal case, and kept me informed, not only of the process, but also the reasoning behind his strategy. I felt like I had an attorney that was looking out for my best interests right from the start.
Without going into detail on the specific charges, I can say that a dismissal (prior to arraignment) is extremely rare, if not unheard of in such a criminal matter. I had several personal and professional liabilities that were intricately linked to the outcome of this case, and Attorney Rakhlin understood and took stake in the importance of this matter in my life.
I truly believe because of Attorney Rakhlin's dedication, as well as his intimate understanding of ALL the nuances of the legal process, he was able to achieve just that: Dismissal PRIOR to arraignment.
It's very apparent that he takes a personal stake in his clients success. If you are looking for an attorney that is not only knowledgeable and talented, but also thoroughly enjoys his craft and takes pride in his client's positive results, than look no further.
Irv Rakhlin is a true asset to his profession.

I contacted two other attorneys prior to working with Attorney Rakhlin. I was always able to get in touch with him when I needed to. He was able to communicated with police detectives on my behalf in a timely manner and handled the case with professionalism. He believed and reassured me, and I did not feel judged. The charges against me were eventually dismissed. If I had hired a different lawyer, I don’t think I would have gotten the same outcome. I was glad I was able to find him not only as my attorney but also as my advocate.
