Mr. Dakanay came highly recommended to me from friends whom had served as his clients in the past. He is a highly professional individual who helped me to better understand the overall court system and the steps which would be taken in order to arrive at a favorable result.
I was facing a felony charge, but due to Mr. Dakanay's commitment to excellence, helped reduce it down to a more-than-welcome misdemeanor. I was greatly appreciative of Mr. Dakanay and the rest of Mr. Scafiddi's Law Office staff's efforts.
I would highly recommend the Law Office of Michael Scafiddi to anyone facing any sort of criminal charges. This team seems to place great merit upon respect and thrive on an honest effort and a hard day's work.

Attorney Ricson was an instrumental part of resolving my case. I was charged with several felony charges filed by the District Attorney's office for stolen property and grand theft due to my former high school having instruments turning up missing. After an intense interview by a detective who didn't seem to care much about my rights, I gave an untrue confession. This would have sunk the ship in any other case. The Law Offices of Michael Scafiddi tasked Attorney Ricson to handle my case. He was present at my arraignment, and every following hearing up to sentencing. Concurrently, Attorney Daly served as my main point of contact from the office.
Ricson put up a defense that was second to none. His knowledge of the Riverside Courthouse proved very benificial in plea negotiations. He fought for my rights without fail, but also ensuring justice was served in a manner that was workable for both parties. Even when circumstances were not exactly in my favor, Ricson never stopped pushing for a better resolution. Due to Ricson's skill, the District Attorneys office agreed to revisit the case in the near future, and make the necessarules changes to the case to allow me to fully put my legal troubles behind me.
Thank you Ricson for all your effort and hard work.

Since I was out to see during most of our correspondence, we were only able to consult via email. However, Mr. Ricson and his assistant Mrs. Mitchell, were extremely compensating and very clear about the information I needed regarding my case, as well as giving me detailed instructions about how to fill out my paperwork and keeping me updated on any changes to my case. There was a slight misstep in regards to one of the line items of my probation, but Mr. Ricson handled it quickly and efficiently. I would definitely recommend Mr. Ricson to anyone with a similar case like mine!

Ricson expertly handled an alcohol related case for me which resulted in my charge being dismissed and my record cleared. Ricson kept me updated and made sure to call me after appearing at each of my hearings. He easily clarified any questions or concerns I had and was tremendously friendly. Ricson was very considerate and I felt as if he empathized with me. I would absolutely recommend his services. I am greatly appreciative for all of his assistance!

When i called my attorney on Thursday, I wasn't sure he would be able to represent me by the following Wednesday. On Monday. he was already in court defending me. Attorney Dakanay was very prompt, professional, and always responded to any questions I had. He kept me informed and I never had to go to court. My case was dismissed. I would recommend Attorney Dakanay and his law firm to anyone who needs professional help. The attorney fees were the best of anyone that I called. Thanks again!

I was wrongly accused of a DUI and the BAC was very high so chances were slim to fight this case but with the determination and expertise with the Michael Scaffiddis firm he was able to prove the burden and Ipleaed down to a lesser drunk in public charge. I can't even begin to thank Ricson and all that handled my case. Words cannot describe my gratitude for what Ricson and the firm did so i can find a better life . Thank You So Much Ricson..,.

I went to Ricson Dakanay for advice on an issue that I had 4 years ago to see what I could do to remove a tarnish on my record. He responded to me hastily and provide sound legal advice and laid out a specific action plan on what needed to be done so I could see immediate results on my matter. His honesty, diligence, and knowledge about the subject matter went a long way as my matter was ultimately dismissed in a timely manner. I can never repay this man for what he has done for me I am greatly appreciative for his efforts as I'm on the track to further my career. I am proud to call him my friend and I highly recommend Ricson C. Dakanay and the Law Offices of Michael A. Scafiddi to assist you in any criminal matter.
