I was arrested with 5 counts (4 misdemeanor and 1 Felony) in Domestic Violence / battery charges. Prior to hiring Paul as my attorney, my previous attorney totally misguided me and kept me in confusion state. Paul helped me in reducing the charges and avoiding the Jail term and deportation. I was on H1B visa and Paul aggressively defended my case by hiring private investigators and helped me in getting the Green Card. Paul is Knowledgeable, Aggressive, Responsive, Trustworthy criminal Defence Attorney.
I strongly recommend Paul for any Domestic Violence cases.

Attorney Paul Puri represented my spouse in the hit &run accident. DA filed case as Misdemeanor. Attorney Paul worked hard and got it settled as Infraction.
Throughout pre-trail he is available to clarify all my questions and he personally handled the case.
I truly appreciate his services and recommend if someone has deal with courts and police.

I highly recommend Paul Puri if you want a Criminal Defense Attorney that aggressively and effectively represents you. I was charged with felony assault with deadly weapon and great bodily injury enhancement. Although I acted in self defense, I knew the justice system doesn’t always work as it should. Paul listened to my side of the story and immediately started working with the District Attorney’s Office to present my case and fight for my defense. He was able to argue and convince the District Attorney’s Office that they had a weak case and they ultimately decided not to prosecute. As a result of his expertise in developing my defense strategy and legal maneuvering, he was successful in getting the charges DISMISSED. I am so grateful for Paul’s commitment, professionalism and hard work, which allowed me to continue a sense of normalcy in my life and for my family. In addition Paul also has a very Professional staff.

After 17 years of tenure with a telecommunications firm; I resigned and accepted a position with a former competitor. Shortly thereafter; I was dragged into a bitter civil lawsuit which lasted almost three years and racked up over $1 Million in legal expenses. Once the civil lawsuit was stalled (basically, my former employer didn’t have a civil leg to stand on) they changed tactics and hired a former US Prosecutor to "package" a criminal case of fraud and interstate money transfer against me. The US Attorneys office, IRS, FBI and local law officials investigated my former employer’s false claims against me for over two years. Prior to meeting Paul Puri; my legal representation was a host of "business law" attorneys who focused on the civil case and were not well versed in criminal law. I was tipped off by one of my attorneys the US Attorney Office was "going to indict me within days". This came as a huge shock; since I knew there wasn’t a foundation for any wrong doing on my behalf. I quickly learned; a good attorney can "package" Gandhi as a mass criminal and therefore, it was time for me to find a hard-nosed, great criminal attorney. My wife and I met with Paul Puri and told our side of the story. We shared with Paul how scared we were if indicted; our two children will grow up without a Father, even-though I was truly innocent of all allegations. I was told; if you're indicted; the chances of winning your case is less than 5%; therefore, Paul would have little time to convince the US Attorney; their two years of investigation was based on bogus information and his client (me) was innocent of all allegations made by an angry former employer. I must admit: at first, I didn't give Paul much chance of pulling off this tall order. Paul continued to gather facts, evidence and testimony and within days; "packaged" our side of the story; only our side was presented with verifiable documentation to back our claims. Paul met with the US Attorney and within days thereafter; convinced the US Attorneys Office not only of my innocence; but any wrong doings (criminally) may have been preformed by my formal employer. I was never idicted and the investigation was dropped. Needless to say, my overall experience with Paul is nothing short of a miracle. Paul truly, (in every sense of the word) saved my life and gave me back my family. With about a 5% chance of success; Paul Puri hit a Grand Slam while blindfolded. I can not say enough about this man; he cares about you; works hard and will not be intimidated by overwhelming odds against you. I pray no one will ever go through the hell my family endured; however, if you EVER need a criminal defense attorney; look no further than Mr. Paul Puri and don't "assume" just because you're innocent; you don't need a great attorney. Paul Puri is one in ten million and I owe him everything I hold dear...

Paul is a wonderful person. As his client I felt he was always willing to go the extra mile to make sure everything was done properly. Always had time for me when I needed him and was frank and attentive to my needs. He kept me well informed at all times and returned my calls promptly. I am grateful for all his help during a difficult time. He is passionate, eloquent when arguing a case and has a solid grasp of the law. I trusted him and his very competent staff to do the very best for me. and he did... He's a good man with his heart in the right place. To him you're more than just a client.

Paul Puri is an excellent attorney when it comes to defend you against the most serious crimes.
One of the most important weapons in his arsenal are the highly professional specialists who assist him as expert witnesses and investigators to bring evidence to annihilate the prosecution case. I had to change attorney three time due to unsatisfactory performance and finally brought Paul to be the attorney for my life.
He is the most smart attorney around who knows what he is doing. He made an aggressive effort to dismiss the 21 felony counts against of very serious nature. I would say that he is a born attorney who did marvelous job in my case

We first met Paul Nathan Puri in 2008. We had been involved in a legal crisis concerning false allegations and it was a very difficult and stressful time for us. Paul immediately took the initiative to assist us and since then has worked diligently to resolve our problems. He is thorough in his investigation, focused and efficient, responding to events thoughtfully and skillfully, with a mind to the “big picture.” He explains things in clear and easy to understand language, which has helped to ease our minds. We are very impressed with his sense of compassion and justice, his maturity and his enthusiasm to help. We are fortunate to have someone so reliable and trustworthy on our side.
