I was arrested for public intoxication. This was an embarrassing situation for me. Steve Sitkoff and his team handled my case with professional compassion and demonstrated expertise in this legal area. I received fantastic counsel on the best course of action. I had my misdemeanor charge reduced to an infraction and only had to pay minor court fees and penalty assessments. This means I do not have the stain of a misdemeanor on my record. I am extremely pleased with the outcome of this case and highly recommend Steve Sitkoff's services.

...I was in despair and had no idea where to go or what to do. I researched criminal lawyers and Takakjian & Sitkoff appeared with raving reviews. After reading many of the great reviews I decided to call. I was scared and a ashamed but from my first phone call to my last handshake walking out of the courtroom a freeman, I was treated with respect and dignity. I wasn't treated like a" number", James is awesome; he is attentive and genuinely cares. Steve is amazing, he knows his way around the courtroom and I felt secure with him. Just a short experience I had with Steve...
It was the day of reckoning for me, I showed up to court gittery and nervous. Steve greeted me in the hall and we walked into the courtroom. I sat down and Steve walked to the bench where all the other lawyers were...the bench was full but right away one lawyer stood up and offered Steve his seat. All the other lawyers knew Steve or knew of Steve, they all greeted him and shook his hand...Steve seemed to be the "big man on campus"...on the way out of court, another lawyer shook my hand and said, "If Steve is your lawyer then you're in good hands"...
That felt good to me. My point is that Steve knows what he is doing. He knows his way around and he is respected amongst his peers. He is truly a master of his craft.
I know my situation may be worse or better than the next man's...but give these guys a try...They're down to earth and I promise you they will do their best to get you out of your worst situation and into the best.

I was arrested and charged with DUI (.13) and was at risk of losing 15 years at my current place of employment. I contacted the Law Offices of Takakjian & Sitkoff and spoke to James Kim (Case Analyst). James was very knowledgeable and personable and immediately put me at ease. Mr. Steve Sitkoff handled my case and was able to get the charges reduced to a wet reckless which allowed me to remain employed and salvage 15 years of hard work. Thanks again.

I was at a frightening position, and I needed sound legal help. To be honest, I had some preconceived notions of attorneys, but only because of horrid past experiences. Working with Steve changed my impression of attorneys. Steve is brilliant, successful in his cases, and incredibly empathic. He truly cares about his clients. I had not seen that before. It was so wonderful to feel safe and protected. Steve Sitkoff is like a FORTRESS to his clients. Add to that his amazing knowledge of the law. He assessed my situation thoroughly, and quickly shifted into Warrior mode. So impressive. He also gave me a gamut of various general information that I needed to know. Honestly, why choose any other attorney? My dad loves Steve, because it's my dad's fatherly advice to always go for the best. I know many attorneys who are relatives, friends, neighbors, and unfortunately some who represented me in the past. I have not seen one attorney who is as compassionate, brilliant, and effective as Steve. Steve gets the job done right. It inspired me to take my own profession seriously. Thank you Steve. And my dad thanks you dearly. You make me feel very safe and protected.
Folks, honestly, just save yourselves from any heartaches, and go to Steve. Any other attorney would just be not good enough. Trust me on this.
Steve Sitkoff is a Warrior, a Fortress, and a wonderful friend to have.
I wrote this comment straight from the heart, hoping it will help someone out there.
