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 one the sharpest, most committed attorneys I've gotten to know in the 15 years I've worked in the legal field. He cares deeply about his clients and ensuring that they are afforded all the rights and protections promised under our legal system. He works hard for his clients, treats his peers with respect, and is deeply invested in working in a fair and equitable justice system.
