I hired Ravi upon being indicted on multiple federal extortion charges. My case lasted 4 years before I was sentenced (worst time of my life). Ravi not only managed to get me out on bond, but he spent countless hours with me going over my case. It was a very complex case with a LOT of information, but he studied every little detail and eventually knew it like the back of his hand. I decided to plead out (like the other 97% of federal cases) and was facing 37-41 months. Ravi made arguments for point reductions at my sentencing and I was ultimately given a 15 month sentence. Trust me, this is a victory. It was only possible because all the effort he put into my case. Over the last 4 years, I have gotten to know him very well. He is not only one of the greatest lawyers, but also one of the greatest people I have met. Not to mention he graduated from Columbia Law School. I can't thank you enough Ravi!

Ravi is a great lawyer. He may be soft spoken but, don't let that fool you...he is excellent with civil matters. In addition, Ravi works well collaborating with other attorneys to bolster your case.

I had the pleasure of being introduced to Ravi by an old friend when I was fighting a charge I was innocent of. Before hiring Ravi I hired an attorney who turned out to be completely. Until Ravi came into the picture, my plea offer was a 5 serve one because of my past. My attorney charged a $2500 retainer fee and $7000 for trial. Of course after 3 months went by he said he can't get it reduced so prepare for trial. I believe he did it on purpose to get the $7000. All the evidence in my case including video pointed towards my innocence or at least no reasonable doubt so I thought if I go to trial with this guy I will be going to prison. That's when I fired him and hired Ravi. Within one week of hiring Ravi the time was taken off the table and I was offered 5 yrs Probation if I plead guilty to a felony. Since I was innocent I declined. The day before my trial was supposed to begin the prosecutor agreed to give me a plea to disorderly conduct. I didn't have to go to trial and risk going to prison and I'm finally at ease thanks to Ravi. Some lawyers don't work as hard is a case isn't high profile but Ravi works hard no matter what he's defending. Thanks to him I get to see my son be born in November and I don't have to worry about going to prison and losing my house because my lady can't afford the mortgage on her own. Ravi and his partner Musa work as a team. When Ravi was in Paris for one of my appearances Musa was there ready to rock n roll. This duo is a prosecutors worst nightmare if they face off in trial and I can't imagine any lawyer in Atlanta having a better understanding of criminal law than Ravi and Musa. When my father and I read the demurrer he pointed out like 20 diff ways my constitutional rights were being violated and we just laughed. On top of saving my life(A felony conviction for terroristic threats kiss any good job goodbye) made me feel at ease. Thanks to Ravi and Musa I'm finally living my life again an my nightmare is over. Their intern/paralegal is amazing. Thanks, love y’all!

My review here cannot begin to express the gratitude I have towards Ravi. Unfortunately I was in need of help, and randomly came across his firm. After speaking to him, I setup a consultation. After meeting in person, I hired him. Ravi is just a man, but a leader amongst lawyers. He is very intelligent, polite, respectful, and always even-keeled, even in the midst of drama in the court room. His voice never waivers…his calmness is almost uncanny. The old adage, ‘the pen is mightier than the sword,’ exactly describes Ravi and his demeanor. He is the exact person you want in your corner, because when he takes your case, he puts all his effort into it, and this effort shows throughout. Needing a lawyer is not a good feeling. Finding a lawyer who has character, integrity, and a devotion to your case, will make all the difference to you during that time of need. I hope to never need him again. I wish I could call him friend. Trust me…hire him.

From the beginning of my case through the end Ravi communicated everything that was going on and had time for me anytime I had questions. Ravi not only won the case against me he cleared my good name and totally discredited the allegations against me. I would recommend and also call Ravi in the future if ever needed.

Though I have not hired Ravi for legal representation, I have had the wonderful privilege of working for him as his legal assistant for over a year now. It is with absolute delight that I endorse Ravi as a criminal defense and family law attorney. Anyone would be blessed to have him on their side in a time of need. Ravi works hard to earn the trust of those who retain his legal services. I have never seen Ravi swindle anyone out of their money or deliver half-heartedly on his made promises. His meticulous case preparation and exacting attention to detail reflects a work product worthy of the highest praise. Even when the court or opposing counsel/party proves to be a hostile or unpredictable adversary, Ravi expertly strategizes to minimize any risks for his clients. He is a man of proven integrity whom I deeply respect and admire. What always strikes me about Ravi is not only his sharp legal acumen but his sincerely humble demeanor with clients and colleagues alike. He is confident in a way that does not require showy presentation. At the same time, Ravi does not shirk from a fight. He understands that thoughtful tact matters just as much as well-timed aggression and employs both with ease. Cognizant of such a difference and exercising the balance between the two sets him apart, giving him a disciplined advantage all his own. If you ever find yourself in a difficult legal situation, I would without hesitation recommend Ravi’s legal expertise. He is simply beyond compare!

I was in jail for two days facing felony charges and he came to evening court with notebook and one file. I was looking at him as if who is this guy. He was hired without me even speaking or seeing him before the court date. He assured me everything would be fine, just let him do all of the talking. I mentioned to him my concern was not having a record after this was over. After watching him in court, I knew it would go my way. I was informed along the way during this process. He would say often, " You catch more flies with honey" I was looking for a Pit Bull to go in there and just tear the other attorney to shreds, but his method was the best because everything was done in a calm manner.
Fast forward, the case was resolved without even going to court. The case was dismissed and nothing showed up on my background! He will not tell you something that he can't deliver on. So, if you want the truth go with him. When you meet him, you have to listen carefully because he has a soft voice but his actions are what anyone should be looking for in a good lawyer.

Ravindra Rayasam did a first rate job getting me a satisfactory settlement offer. He knew the strategies and how to get the maximum award - hiring Ravi really paid off.
