A family member received a restraining order on Labor Day weekend and Irvin worked with us throughout the weekend to make sure we were ready to resolve it on Tuesday morning. It was lifted. What we liked best about Irvin was his desire to create win-win outcomes for families in crisis. He is calm and caring and helped deal with a lot of distress. Highly recommended.

I had the misfortune of being arrested. A court appointed attorney did not do well with the D.A. The fact that I was innocent didn't matter; I was in trouble. I hired Attorney Rakhlin to represent me. He is confident, professional, and dedicated. He is an expert regarding Massachusetts law, and is well respected in local courts. This means the powers that be cannot step on your rights. I did NOT have to go to trial. Once attorney Rakhlin took my case, The Commonwealth dismissed it. This man prevented me from going to jail for something I didn't do. HIRE HIM !!

Irvin Rakhlin delivered superb performance and results! Definitely acquire his services if you're in need of legal Expertise!
We all make mistakes in life and unfortunately my screw up yielded me a charge of DUI 2nd offense . 2 months after recieving a CWOF on my 1st offense DUI. But it gets worse. 6 months later I get slapped with another charge! Operating while revoked while my 2nd offense DUI court case was still OPEN. From the beginning when I went to my first consultation with Rakhlin Law, Irvin met with me personally and was realistic but supportive about the case against me. Making sure I knew the risks, the pros and the cons about my case. I felt depressed and hopeless throughout this legal nightmare but Irv was supportive through the whole ordeal. Everyone expected that I would ultimately and inevitably settle for the deal offered by the prosecutors and possibly spend time in jail. But guess what! Irvin saw my case through trial and with charismatic professionalism he fought and got me a NOT GUILTY verdict! Days later we meet with a Clerk Magistrate on this Operating while revoked charge and Irv delivers yet again! And they agree to let me go provided I have no issues until Oct. I'll take it! How grateful and appreciative I am is beyond words and now have my life back. Thank you Irvin. Excellent Services! !

One hopes to never be in a position that places them in need of a criminal attorney. However, if circumstances lead to the unfortunate path of relying on professional representation, it'll always be a smart decision to rely on Irv Rakhlin. I've been riddled with anxiety and stress during the past 6 months due to my situation, and Irv's been there to both reassure me and remain devoted to representing me in court to the best of his abilities. At a time when all other attorneys I consulted with advised that I take the safe and easy route through dealing with my impending charges, Irv offered to at least take a risk and motion for a highly unlikely court decision that would preserve my previously clean record. It was something that other attorneys I consulted with had literally laughed at, and yet Irv and I came very close to landing it. Despite the motion getting rejected in the end, Irv remained steadfast and opted to go full force with the next best option. Ultimately, the end of my case is now within sight with terms that are highly reduced compared to what's considered standard. He put himself out there for me and proceeded through the several months with professionalism, empathy, and aggressiveness. Overall, the entire process wasn't cheap, but it's true that you do get what you pay for.

As a physician professional wrongly accused, I knew little about the criminal defense system. I naively made my first court appearance with no lawyer, and then was approached by a lawyer who proved to be inept and unassertive in court. I found Irvin through an online search. He basically saved my career by leading me to an innocent trial verdict. He is sharp, analytical, accessible, and communicative. I recommend him with the highest rating!

Mr. Rakhlin is a very nice guy. He met me on a Sunday to accommodate my schedule. Irvin is very knowledgeable and helpful; every time I talk to him is a great relief to me. Not only the incident was solved, but also my record was kept intact. I strongly recommend Irvin!

Me encontré en una situación inesperada y en mi contra con la ley de Massachusetts. Busqué a alguien especialista en el campo del crimen del que se me acusaba. Elegí a Irvin porque era de los pocos especialistas con 5 estrellas en sus reviews. En nuestra primera conversación telefónica, tan pronto le conté lo sucedido fue muy descriptivo respecto al pronóstico del caso, ofreciéndose a reunirse conmigo ese mismo fin de semana (pese a que era fiesta nacional). Mantuvo contacto constante conmigo, estudió bien los detalles del caso y me puso al corriente de todas las complicaciones que posiblemente derivarían. Me guió paso a paso por las leyes del país y me hizo dar todos los pasos necesarios para probar mi inocencia y poder defenderme. Desde el primer encuentro (tras el telefónico), noté que había estudiado a fondo las posibilidades de ayudarme, y agradezco su entrega completa al caso, escribiéndome para pedirme los documentos que necesitaría y explicando el procedimiento de la vista con gran detalle. Gracias a su perspectiva pragmática de los hechos, convenció a la fiscalía para que reconsiderase mi condena y consiguió que se desestimase el caso, reduciendo mi 'castigo' a horas de servicio comunitario. Además, mi vuelo de vuelta a España será antes de la última vista, y confío plenamente en Irvin para dar la cara por mi cuando ya no esté y ocuparse de cerrar mi caso. Sin duda le recomendaré a conocidos de aquí: su amabilidad y profesionalidad son impecables. Además, habla Español y entiende de la cultura española, lo que en mi caso fue importante.

In early February I contacted the Law Offices of Irvin Rakhlin a Criminal Defense Attorney for consultation on a motor vehicle charge I received in Ogunquit, ME in August of 2016. Because, it was an offense in York County, Maine. I have had to address the actual charges for Driving to Endanger and Maine's Decision to suspend my license in Maine. Attorney Rakhlin looked into the Maine suspension and how it would affect my drivers license in Massachusetts. He must have put two hours into investigating my license status between the two States. (MA and ME)
His ability to speak Russian helped me understand my situation much more clear because of my limited English speaking skills. In Maine, the Police Officers, lawyers, court personnel "ALL" had difficulty understanding me. In fact, there would have not have been any charges against me, if the Police Officer in Ogunquit, ME had taken the time to understand what I was saying to him. He got annoyed at my questioning his hostility toward the 3rd Party I was with. Please, understand that because of language barriers we face living in the United States, it is crucial that people in my circumstance contact a lawyer such as Irvin Rakhlin. I will use him in the future for any further problems I may face. I will also, let my many Russian/Ukrainian Co-Workers and Friends know about Attorney Rakhlin.
It is important for me to make connections in Massachusetts with individuals and agencies that offer advocacy for individuals like myself, who are here in the USA to work or go to College. The culture here is very different from the Ukraine and I am learning to assimilate and improve my "English" skills every day.
Thank you for your recent help with my case.

I was unexpectedly involved in a criminal case, and contacted Mr. Rakhlin. He guided my patiently through the process, and ultimately had the case dismissed.
At the time I was charged, I was in the process of applying for a visa, and the application would likely be rejected if there is an open case on me. Among the lawyers I spoke with, Mr. Rakhlin is the only lawyer that suggested an accelerated approach that suited my situation, rather than a generic line of defense that would have taken much longer. The proceedings that followed were exactly as Mr. Rakhlin predicted, and we reached the most favorable outcome.
I highly recommend Mr. Rakhlin and his services. He rate may be expensive, but it's certainly well deserved.
