About Me

I am a true believer and knew since I was fourteen years old that I wanted to be a criminal defense attorney.  I believe that the American Justice system is the best in the world - mainly because it allows defense attorneys such lattitude to establish reasonable doubt.  I have handled thousands of criminal cases over the past 10 years and have conducted hundreds of preliminary hearings as well as countless motions and other sorts of litigation.  I belive that the only way to practice criminal defense is to be "in the trenches" with my client.

    Rabin is an excellent attorney. He approaches his work with professionalism, diligence and attention to detail. Rabin is very experienced in all aspects of criminal law and procedure, and I would not hesitate to recommend his services. Importantly, Rabin is also a good person that consistently builds trust and rapport with his clients, opposing attorneys, judges and court staff. He truly knows his stuff and cares about the outcomes he is ultimately able to deliver.
