The Best!
Words can't express my gratitude for Mr. Varghese and his firm. My case was tough and I would probably still be incarcerated if it hadn't been for Mr. Varghese's diligence and professionalism. He visited me in prison in Brazil, represented me in the US while I was facing extradition; he fought for harsh punishment because of the conditions and time I spent before coming back to the US. I was facing up to 20 years in prison and he fought for me to get time served and I did. He didn't see me just as another case to make money, but he was compassionate and never gave me false expectations. He not only represented my interests, but demonstrated empathy to my wife through very difficult times. We will be eternally grateful and would recommend this firm to anyone. I trusted my life and future to Mr. Varghese and he didn't disappoint.

Great criminal defense lawyer
I hired Varghese to represent a family member in a serious criminal matter. He did a terrific job. He was caring and empathetic, but at the same time he was assertive and determined in getting the charges dismissed.

Experienced pragmatic law firm that fights for their clients
Having worked with Varghese & Associates since its formation almost 15 years ago, we have interfaced with a number of the Firm's clients, including giving testimony. The message is consistent and clear. Varghese & Associates provides the best criminal defense possible, regardless of the circumstances. Vinoo Varghese's prior experience in the District Attorney's office enables him to have a unique perspective on what is required to make sure their clients prevail.

Tireless Advocate for clients
We were struggling to find a competent lawyer. Most lawyers shied away from taking our case as they didn’t feel comfortable in defending us in federal court, while other lawyers asked us to declare bankruptcy and not fight the case against a big law firm. When I spoke with Vinoo, he sounded reassuring, he listened to us patiently, and he agreed to take our case, to fight for justice and right a terrible wrong. He devised a brilliant strategy that secured us the results that we wanted. What I observed is that he understands how to navigate the court system procedures efficiently and effectively. Secondly, he is extremely knowledgeable on the variety of defenses available to clients. And most importantly, as a former prosecutor, he knows how the mind of a prosecutor works. All of these skills were used effectively to get us a favorable outcome Vinoo has tirelessly dedicated himself and his staff to fight our case. We wish him continued success on all future clients he chooses to represent

excellent
These guys treated me like family the second I came in the door. Unfortunately, there was a situation that required me to seek legal aid, and the team here at Varghese took one look at the case, put all my fears to rest, and generally made me feel as though I was their number-one priority. I can't possibly recommend these guys enough. Five stars, two thumbs up, whatever rating scale you like, Varghese & Associates tops it.
