"Tori' is goal oriented, with the highest attainable result, I could not have hoped for more, and I did not imagine it was even possible to have the options she obtained, it seemed like a miracle. Her immediate action and absolute understanding of the law and system made the process smooth and clear. Non-judgemental and caring for my sons future was something I could not have anticipated and yet more than appreciated, she works with such passion, determination and as fast as possible.
I have the utmost respect for her professionalism and confident approach which I am sure comes from her absolute knowledge
of the law, to give the best outcome.

I hired Tori to represent me in a "sexual contact with a minor" charge. She asked me what I wanted to get in terms of an offer from the prosecutor. I told her to keep me out of prison, keep me off of the Sex Offenders List and keep me from being labeled as a Felon. After 3-4 months of going back and forth with the prosecutor, Tori was able to get my charges knocked down to "child abuse" and offer me a deal of 6 months county jail, 5 years probation and my charges to be considered a Withheld Adjudication instead of a Felony. "No Felony, no Prison, no Sex Offenders List!!!!!" After 2.5 years of my probation, I rehired Tori to represent me for a motion for early termination of my probation. She got this approved immediately so that I only did half of my 5 year probation. My bad decisions could have shadowed me for the rest of my life with the charges I was originally facing but thanks to Tori and her willingness to go to the mat for me, 3 years later, I can put this behind me with just a hard lesson learned. I would hire Tori again in a second if I needed to but I'm hoping I will never have that need again. Tori is very intelligent, she understands how the world works and what it takes to get the job done. Tori is very professional and depenable. Tori Mussallem is definitely the one you want representing you.

Tori is Professional, Informed, Hard-Working, and knows how to win. She's helped me with multiple cases and I always know I can trust her to get me through it. She's always quick to get back to me right away with all of the details, and no matter how worried I am about what is going on she is calm, smart, and very reassuring. Hopefully I'm never in trouble with the legal system again, but I know I can count on Tori to stand up for me.
