Attorney Rakhlin acted with the utmost care and integrity in dealing with my case. This case was a lingering DUI so most of the paperwork was with another attorney and the courts' records were mistaken. Attorney Rakhlin expeditiously retrieved the missing paperwork, presented my case to the commonwealth, and after only two appearances, Attorney Rakhlin was able to close a six year old case. I would recommend his services to anyone in need of a fair and expert attorney.

Mr. Rakhlin did an excellent job on a sensitive matter, negotiating a favorable result that we had not anticipated. I highly recommend him!

This past fall I found myself in a situation that I never dreamt of being in. I was arrested and charged with two criminal offenses that had the potential to permanently alter my life. I had never been in a situation like this before, I felt completely lost and had no idea what steps to take in order to make sure I would be given due process. Without ever meeting me, Irv represented me in court on short notice when a family member who was representing me wasn't able to do so. Irv was a true professional in every sense of the word,from the way he carried himself to how he addressed the judge and members of the court. His confidence and knowledge made me feel comfortable and gave me hope that things would turn out ok. He stayed in court for the full day, 8-4, when he wasn't obligated to and had clients of his own to attend to. That speaks volumes for who he is as a person. Irv fought for me and got my charges dropped that very day. I am at loss for words when thinking of what Irv did for me that day. He still checks in on me every so often and offers guidance and assistance. Irv kept my life on the right track and I am forever grateful to him. I highly recommend Irv to anyone who needs an attorney. He's a stand up individual who fights for what he believes in and it is an honor to have him represent you.

Attorney Rakhlin was very considerate of my delicate situation and took all steps to assure that I got the best possible outcome. He was professional and curteous at all times and I never felt like I was being left out of decisions. He took the time to explain to me all about the law reguarding my case so I, a layperson, could understand.

When my 17 year old son was facing criminal charges from 2 separate instances I enlisted the services of Irvin Rakhlin. We discussed the charges that were being brought and also agreed that my son needed to be made aware of the consequences of his actions and what he was facing if he was to be charged with said offenses. Irvin went above and beyond the call of duty not only as a lawyer but educated my son as to the seriousness of one of the charges if they were brought against him. He was not only able to get the time of the charges being held reduced but made sure that my son would provide community service and stay on the straight and narrow until the time limit ended. Irvin not only did his job as a lawyer but he also provided a valuable life lesson to my 17 year old who has since gotten a job and has improved his school grades. I highly recommend Irvin Rakhlin.

Irvin was great to work with. He seemed very qualified to be handling my case and understood what I wanted to come out of it. He was always reachable by phone or e-mail and works hard to get you the results you deserve. Easy going individual whose compassion for his clients are admirable.
