Amazing!! Simply Amazing!!
I hired Rada and Manny Machin to help me fight a baseless Peace Order that had been filed against me by a roommate. As someone who has never been arrested, charged, nor convicted of a crime in my entire life, at first, I was completely distraught to learn that I was being dragged into a legal matter. That's when I picked up my phone and immediately called Rada. After learning the details of the situation, she immediately assured me she would get me the desired result (i.e. the peace order dismissed, struck from my record, and my pristine record and reputation restored). And boy oh boy, Rada and Manny delivered! Not only did they get me the outcome I wanted, but their personalized service was outstanding! Unlike large firms that have existed for decades, with Rada and Manny, the client is not a "grain of sand"--taken for granted. They treated me like their number one priority throughout the entire process. I pity the fool who has litigation against someone represented by Rada and Manny! I already know I'll be using Rada and Manny again soon for some immigration help (marrying my longtime girlfriend who is a foreigner). Thanks Rada and Manny!

Excellent experience!!!!
High praise for attorneys is rare- but Rada.A.Machin in stands apart from the Legal community in many meaningful ways.No-nonsense, straight to the point and very professional… these are the words I would use to describe Rada.A.Machin and her legal team. She was responsive to my phone calls and emails and always available to answer questions.

We hired the Machin Law Firm to help us with my son’s last name change. From the moment we sat down all of our questions were answered. Rada and Manuel were so thorough and detailed we knew right away they were right for the job. We highly recommend them.

Great work!
Rada is an amazing lawyer! For my case, it has been very emotional and overwhelming. Rada has been there by my side and assuring me that she was there to support me as well as represent me. We won the case and I would trust her with anything! I can’t say enough great things and I would recommend her to anyone and everyone!!

Now we are together
Rada is smart. She knows what she is doing. Because of her, I am happily married to the girl I dated for 9 years. She lost her student status since her mother was terminally ill back in her country, and could not afford the tuition fees anymore. Rada not only has brought the girl I love into my life as my wife, but also given my wife a better future. Highly recommend the Machins for marriage cases.

Powerful, Courageous, and highly Deligent
Mrs. Machin (I like to call her Rada) is the total package if you're in need representation. She is highly professional, very detail oriented, and a "go getter." We hired her for our immigration needs out of a handful of other lawyers. She is a Winner and we are extremely pleased with how she has handled our case. I highly recommend her!

Review for Rada Machin
I needed to have some legal documentation done for my new business website and Rada did a great job. Her work was professional and complete, and she finished it quickly. I was very satisfied with the quality of the work. When I need work like this done again I will not hesitate to contact her.
