| Hired Attorney
Great lawyer....exceeded expectations!!!
Aj Arias is a wonderful lawyer to hire. He took his time and went above and beyond to defend me in a matter I thought couldn't be done!! Not only did he defend me, he spent a lot of his time researching new programs available to people with mental health issues that not many people know about. He does his homework. Thanks to him I can move on with my life!!! Definitely great at what he does. Thank you Aj!!!

Caring and professional
Attorney Arias helped me immensely with a motor vehicle misdemeanor charge. Not only did he get my charges nallied, he even picked me up for court when I couldn't use my car. He also kept in touch with me throughout the whole process to make sure I was ready for our court dates. He spoke with the prosecutors for me, and got me out of trouble without any fines or points on my license! He really cared about me, and did his best to help me.

All the legal counsel I'll ever need!
Mr. Arias far surpassed my expectations! Not to say I was anticipating less but to speak to how pleasant my experience was and how well my needs were net in the end. He is personable, honest and straight forward.. he will never hesitate to further explain something if need be. He is organized and on top of your proceedings; he follows up with any correspondence necessary. If being able to have a positive rapport and trust in your attorney is important he's definitely your guy. He will be sure to handle your situation to the best of his ability, to ensure the outcome most beneficial to you.

Did a wonderful job!
Abe handled a Chapter 7 bankruptcy case for my husband and myself. Abe was extremely knowledgeable and explained things so well that he put my husband and I at peace through a devastating time in our life. He came highly recommended by our financial counselor. Dave is not only knowledgeable in this area of law, but is also personable and trustworthy. He was there with us every step of the way and we are grateful to him.

Family Law - Mediation
When Attorney Arias first took my case. He has taking a Family Mediation situation that I felt was a no win since I was battling it on my own going by what the courts have instructed me to do with no luck on my side. With the help of his mediation he took a very bad situation that was going on for years and turned it into a very positive outcome that I never thought would result to. He responds in a timely manner and seems to know the court system very well. I am very greatful to have him representing me and that I can ask him advice whenever I need it and know that I will get proper guidance. He is patient and made sure that everyone was all on the same page. He is known within the court system and most definitely familiar with the all local judges and other colleagues alike along with all the court guidelines that are required. Attorney Arias has saved me time, and money in the long run. With this being said I feel as if the world has been lifted and the burden is gone! I'm relieved to have Atty. Arias representing me! I would absolutely recommend him for any and all Family Mediation case.
