I am so deeply grateful I found her. I was in a very sticky situation and she basically saved my life. It was a domestic violence case with 3 charges. I was supposed to go to jail for 60 days and have probation with domestic violence classes and pay thousands in fines. I made several calls to other lawyers, mostly men, thinking that I should have a very outspoken and aggressive attorney. But it just seemed like they just wanted me to meet with them and not talk to me on the phone. I almost did bc I was so desperate. But I happened to stumble on Anita's profile and thank goodness I called. She picked up even though it was almost time for her to go home. I had a lot of really naive questions but she stayed on the phone for half an hour past her office hours calmly explaining as much as she could. I was very blunt and honest with her about my fears and she could not have been more kind. I even told her that I was uncomfortable about how mild she sounded since I expected attorneys to be aggressive. But she explained that it's actually better to be less aggressive and be discreet bc the court responds better. She was 1000% correct. I also told her I didn't have the money right now and she still started prepping on my case. I am so deeply grateful for this amazing attorney. She was so kind, patient, and caring every step of the way. I was so terrified. She walked me through every single step. She expects payment upfront and it is pricey but it was worth every single penny. I even wanted to buy her lunch bc I was so grateful. She is so pure and kind hearted. She did everything the absolute correct and professional way. She could not have done a better job. She thought of absolutely everything and anything that could help. I am so glad I did not go for the other aggressive attorneys bc I watched them in court and they seemed to just settle for their clients. I even heard one of them say to their client to just take the initial offer bc it's better than nothing and he needs to take what he can get. But Anita on the other hand never settled. I actually had a really amazing offer right off the bat but she kept asking the prosecutor about three or four times for a better offer and even planned to speak with his supervisor. I actually had to tell her to settle. It brought me to tears how much she purely and honestly wanted to get the best for me. I never imagined an attorney to care so much. Even after the trial, she is still checking up on us and making sure we cover everything. She always responds promptly by email, even when she was on vacation. I don't know how I was able to just get the perfect attorney but I am so deeply grateful for her. I wish she was not a criminal defense attorney so I could work with her more. Thanks to her, I'm a free man, and I have less than a thousand to pay in fines. I also only have one charge.

Ms Patel performed an excellent work representing me in L.A. Court. She managed to dismiss a criminal complaint against me due to her great technical expertise, and good communication and interpersonal skills. After speaking with her several times via email (cause I live in a different country), she oriented me about the matter, asked for documents and proofs, and headed to court, achieving that amazing outcome. I must say she was always courteous and helpful answering questions and clearing my doubts. She provided quality service and responsiveness with a reasonable legal fee . I'm totally satisfied and pleased with her work, so I could not recommend her any higher.

I called the police during an argument with my husband and was arrested and charged with felony spousal abuse. We were both in utter shock and completely devastated. I had never gone through anything like this before and was completely at a loss. I called Anita after finding her on Avvo and she started on my case immediately. She compiled a beautifully written letter on my behalf along with character references that she asked me to collect and sent them to the DA and city attorney's offices in an effort to avoid a court hearing and have an office hearing instead. She let me know that she had spoken to the DA's office and that they had received all the documents she had compiled on my behalf and were just waiting for the case to cross their desk. This all happened within a week of contacting her.
During the several days of waiting for a response from the DA's office, Anita always kept me informed and checked in on me. I also emailed, texted, and called Anita several times with my questions and concerns, and she was always very accessible and responded the same day.
When the DA's office finally got my case and reviewed all the documents, they completely rejected my case and did not file any charges! This was even better than the office hearing that I was hoping for. Anita is simply amazing. She was very proactive and took into consideration all my concerns. She also took extra steps in an abundance of caution to make sure that we would have the best result. Thanks to her, I have peace of mind. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a thorough, knowledgeable, proactive, and responsive attorney.

I could not recommend Anita any higher! My son had a fake idea confiscated at a concert and given a misdemeanor. Anita helped creating a bio for him and used that in her case. My son did not have to appear and Anita got a total dismissal with no further action required. Anita was friendly, responsive and totally professional. Thank you Anita!

Ms. Patel was extremely professional and was able to successfully resolve a complicated situation. I was in a very difficult situation, living out of state, and attempting to deal with an old bench warrant that could have caused me much difficulty. Ms. Patel guided me through every step, handling the case with confidence. She had a good working rapport with the court and her colleagues and was able to walked out of court with the most successful resolution possible. I would highly recommend Ms. Patel's services.

If you are looking for a criminal attorney, we highly recommend Anita Patel. Our son was charged with two misdemeanor charges. Our immediate family had never experienced issues with the law other than traffic tickets, so we didn’t know what to do. We looked up attorneys on the internet and came across Anita Patel. We chose her because of the good recommendations and her knowledge of the court where the misdemeanors were going to be filed. With Ms. Patel’s knowledge of criminal law, the court system, and hard work, she was able to have the misdemeanors dismissed. All our expectations for the result of the case were exceeded. She is kind which helps when nerves are about to break. She kept us apprised of all the developments of the case. Ms. Patel always made herself available to answer all the questions that our family had during this very difficult period which caused so much tension within our family. Ms. Patel was very patient and genuinely cared about our son and two very worried parents. Thanks to her hard work, my son can continue on with his life without fear of having a criminal record to hinder his future.

I made a pretty dumb mistake over the summer and earned myself a misdemeanor charge while at a concert. I am a hardworking student at a university and did not have so much as a parking ticket on my record. I knew the offense was serious, but I didn't know how serious until I called Anita. I told her my concerns and she explained that it could end up being worse than I thought. She told me that she has handled a few cases like mine before and that she had a plan of action that would give me the best odds of getting my charge reduced.
I put together a few letters of recommendation and a short bio of myself explaining that I have no previous record along with a few other positive points. She brought those in front of a prosecutor, who she said would be much more inclined to review a case in more detail than simply presenting it to a judge. Of course, she was right! The prosecutor was impressed with the material and agreed to lower my charge.
I cannot thank her enough; she helped me avoid what would have likely been a charge that would have had consequences for quite some time.
Through the process, she was never hard to reach and was very responsive to any form of contact by which I tried to reach her. She was always polite, understanding, and helpful with any questions I had. I would absolutely recommend her! You can't go wrong with Anita Patel!
