Elliot is a very personable and energetic person. He is phenomenal at his profession and very dependable. He has made an impossible situation into a reality by being available to answer ALL my inquiries and, most importantly, reducing my dui charge into a wet wreckless charge. I am very happy with his performace as an attoney and even more impressed with his personality!!! And trust me, personality goes a long way.
So if there is anyone in need of legal assistance of the like, this is the person to call. I would, absolutely, utilize his services again if need be!!!
I want to personally say, "Thank you for your help!!!", because without him, I would've suffered greater consequences and greater losses.

Elliot helped me tremendously. I was accused of battery and was being charged as a Felon. I got a knock on my door and was served with papers for an altercation I was in almost 9 months prior. I googled the charges I was booked with which was for battery. I saw his ad to help people in my situation. I was desperate. When I Called, I was in tears... he said keep your head up and just to come see him, and we will figure it out. I felt so comfortable even going to see him. When I got to his office, I felt like I was talking to a friend. No joke. He made me feel like he was on my side from the get-go. Yes, you may think this is a lawyer's hook, line and sinker... but I tell you honestly he was aware that this person was out for money and money only. Elliot knew I didn't have all the funds to pay him and worked out a payment plan to help me get through all of this comfortably without breaking the bank... and I must say his prices were VERY reasonable! He went above and beyond expectations. I feel like I owe him more but he was so damn cool and down to earth that it's just not his style to take people for a ride. He is in it for the people. TRUST ME when I say he is the lawyer you want on your side. All my charges and probation where dropped within a year. Small price to pay when it could have gone south if I didn't have someone as honorable as him by my side. Thank you Elliot, you have been great! To me, you're like family now!!! Always will be!!!

Mr Zarabi turned a huge headache into a manageable easy solution for me. Being in the military dealing with a DUI is a different from a regular DUI. Mr Zarabi was very knowledgable on the process, responsive, assuring and delivered great results for me. I would definitely recommend him.

I found Elliot on this site when I was arrested on a misdemeanor child abuse charge. I was initially given a public defender but after very poor representation I knew that I needed someone that could devote more time to my case. Elliot advised me of my options and honestly assessed that taking this case to trial may not be in my best interest.
After explaining to Elliot the ramifications that this conviction would have on my employment, Elliot went to work trying to secure me a more favorable deal. Unfortunately the Prosecution and I were not able to secure a deal that would not negatively impact my employment, and we were therefore forced to go to trial.
With pictorial evidence that would suggest that I did this unforgivable act Elliot and his trial team were able to mount a strong defense to show that these allegations were completely false.
Elliot appeared personally invested in the outcome of this trial and did not treat me nor my family as a simple case file, but did treat us with dignity and respect.
Elliot believed in my innocence and ferociously defended me and ultimately obtained a NOT GUILTY verdict.
I believe I have gained a life long advocate in Elliot Zarabi, and although I hope to never utilize his services again for a criminal matter I can Honestly and Truly recommend him for anyone else legal issues. My family and I are truly gratefully for the Law Office of Elliot R. Zarabi

Today was my court date and I am so happy with the result. Getting arrested is probably the worst thing that's happened to me. The next morning wasn't any better because all I could think about was what I was going to do next. Going on the internet didn't help because I was just so overwhelmed with all the negative things that could happen. In a moment of temporary insanity I even considered not having a lawyer. After speaking with Elliot I knew I wanted him to represent me. His confidence helped calm me down, he explained whole process, and assured me he would work his hardest to get the best possible outcome.
His fee is very reasonable and he even offers installment payments. As soon as I hired him he proved he was worth every penny because he got two extensions on my temporary license, something I didn't know I could do. If I had a question or concern he was always just a text, call, or email away. Thanks to Elliot and his knowledge of the system I got a reduced charge today and he even offered some options and tips for the future. I'm so glad I can put this behind me and move forward with my life. If you get a DUI save yourself the heartache and hire Elliot.

When I was looking for a lawyer for my case, a friend recommended me to Elliot Zarabi. It wasn't more than 15 minutes after I emailed him that he called and followed up with my particular situation. He was engaging and very approachable on the phone and in person.
He's always busy but will always answer your questions; he is very accessible (by phone, text, email) and he will go through the process of the legal system with you in full detail or in quick summary (whatever you like). He was able to drop my DUI charges down to a Wet & Reckless in a case where I could have easily just pleaded guilty. He took care of the arraignments and plea bargaining - I didn't get to be involved in any part of the process.
If you're looking for a lawyer who knows what he is doing and is able to find ways to help your case to the fullest, give Elliot Zarabi a call!

Mr. Zarabi has represented our college age son. I don't want to detail too much because of privacy issues for our son, but I can say that Mr. Zarabi has done an outstanding job. The settlement he negotiated was better than we expected. Not only has he been an excellent attorney, he is also personable, and he has been a role model for our son. He makes himself available nearly 24/7, I have always gotten quick responses to my concerns and questions.

Elliot contacted me back in July after I put out a request for lawyers to contact me for my DUI arrest. I was scared and had NO idea how to move forward. After speaking to a few attorney's, I knew to choose Elliot right after our first conversation. Off the bat, he walked me through the process of what would happen, and explained things to me thoroughly. I put my trust into him, and that's incredibly hard for me to do with anyone. He was able to lower my DUI charge to a wet reckless, reduce my fines, and most importantly, give me peace of mind. I'd highly recommend Elliot to anyone who unfortunately gets into this position. Thanks again for everything.

Hiring Elliot was the best decision I could've made.
He was kind and genuine, and he didn't make me feel
like he was just a lawyer trying to make money. He was completely supportive
and I felt really safe . Elliot really went above and beyond , and now
thanks to him we won my case and a huge weight was lifted.
I know made the right choice in hiring Elliot and I can say without a doubt
If I ever find myself in tough spot again I know who I'm gonna call.
Thank you again Elliot , you really are a life saver .
