MOST Effective Representation
My attorney on this case was by far one of the best I have had. She was diligent in her tasks and profound in her ability to de-escalate my charges. I would recommend her to anybody who needs proper representation in the court of law.

Amazing lawyer
I was in a huge pickle with unforseen charges and left in the county jail. Parisa not only got me out but also got so many charges dropped and out of my pickle. She is super nice and understanding, listens to you and makes you feel like a person. I would totally recommend her if all possible.

I could not be more thankful
I had a 19 year old felony charge on my record that I was looking to have expunged. I had 2 counts of uttering and publishing which could not be removed by the automatic expungement process because they were punishable by over 10 years each count. I turned to Parisa for help. She successfully had one count dismissed and the other expunged. I now have a clean criminal record, which is something I never thought I would see. Parisa is extremely knowledgeable, professional and I was always well informed. I will forever recommend Parisa to anyone and everyone.

Super Compassionate & Patient Listener
I was really impressed with how patient, knowledgeable, and understanding Parisa is. I did not expect her to listen to me for so long during a consultation. She is incredibly compassionate.

Very diligent
Parisa represented my 14yr old son i some very serious charges, she worked diligently for a plea agreement that the prosecutors office was not wanting to give or budge on for many months, but she kept at it and kept in contact with us and was there any and every time we had questions, thank you very much

Parisa is great!
I was fighting an angry ex that wanted to ruin my life. Parisa stepped in, she brought calm and peace into the situation. She gave me counseling to not react emotionally, and we won. She is a great attorney that knows the law, she knows when to be aggressive, but also knows when to pull back. Basically, never interrupt an enemy while they are destroying themselves.

Absolutely the best representation we could have wished for.
I hired Parisa to represent my daughter on a DUI probation violation and a DV case, both related to a scary January '23 incident, which resulted from my daughter's bad judgment in choosing a potential new friend, after an earlier long-term relationship had gone bad, leaving her heartbroken. We were initially looking to hire the original attorney who had represented my daughter on the DUI case, but he had relocated, and we didn't like the other options left within the well-known, expensive, firm we'd worked with initially. I am convinced that this worked out for the best, as we couldn't have hoped for a better outcome than what she was able to do for my daughter. Parisa was excellent at explaining the expected outcomes with each step of the process and it felt like she was not only doing so in the most professional, knowledgeable, way a best-in-class attorney would do, but also being kind and caring, offering us a warm support, in a responsive, thorough, kind, manner. My daughter was prosecuted in the very strict and famously hard to deal with 52-3 District Court in Rochester Michigan and I am convinced that had we not hired Parisa we could have dealt with some very unfortunate consequences of a less than ideal representation. Thanks LEWIS & DICKSTEIN Law Firm, especially to Parisa, for the excellent services you offered us, in a difficult case. You've made it possible for us to put the legal nightmare behind us and to start looking forward to a fresh start. Having been represented by one of your competitors in the earlier case and having consulted multiple other law firms before hiring your services, I am convinced that your services are the best in class.

BEST ATTORNEY AROUND!!!
Lucky enough to have Parisa represent our son and we are so grateful for her help! She was so proactive on every aspect; was very good at contacting us to answer all our questions (even on the weekend)! Don't find that much anymore and so glad that we have her in our corner. You definitely can't go wrong with Parisa as your attorney. There aren't enough stars for rating how truly talented she is as an attorney.

Highly recommend Parisa for your legal needs!
Parisa assisted us through the entire​ legal​ process and explained everything to us. She believed in us and it showed. We can thank her enough for getting the felony charge reduced down to a misdemeanor charge with no contest. She truly cares about her clients and is a confident, hardworking, empathetic attorney that will fight for you. I would highly recommend her to assist you with your legal matters.

10 Stars!!!!
Parisa did an amazing job representing and advocating for me on my OWI/Obstructing case. She is amazing I cannot say that enough. Parisa guided me through every step of the process, she answered every call and every email timely. She prepared me for what to expect and never steered me in the wrong direction. This process is tough and finding someone who you can trust in, someone who can advocate for you as well as someone who has your best interest in mind made it that much easier on me. She checked all of those boxes! Parisa was prepared for everything from the first meeting I had with her to our last court date. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience or outcome with my case. Not only were both of my charges reduced, in addition, my probation length and requirements were significantly lowered based on all of the preemptive classes and documents Parisa had me start on early. I believe this is because Parisa is great at what she does! I hope I don’t need Parisa in the future but if I find myself needing a lawyer without a doubt, she will be my first call.

Proactive, Response, Organized, Professional
Parisa was excellent and worth the investment. She is detailed, pro-active, responsive, organized and very professional. She follows up on every detail to make sure all the process/checkboxes are met. Also she explores multiple options and walkthrough the choices clearly so you can make the best decisions on your case. Lastly, and maybe most importantly, I will say that Parisa is a very good and attentive listener. When we met/talked I always felt like I had her full attention.

Top Notch Criminal Defense Attorney !
I highly recommend Parisa Sadrnia for any Criminal Defense needs you may encounter. Parisa rescued me from trouble after a Brutal Divorce of 40 years and charges filed against me from my estranged x-wife. The end results were very favorable for me. Parisa is a no-nonsense Professional Attorney that displayed never ending perseverance and steadfast enthusiasm tailored towards my individual case. The lines of communication were always open and explanations were at the forefront. Parisa is very dedicated to her profession and I would have been surely lost without her as my Counselor. Parisa is very friendly and compassionate as well on a personal level. If anyone should choose a Criminal Defense Attorney other that Parisa Sadrnia, you made a huge mistake ! Put your trust in excellent hands TODAY. Run to her, don't walk !!! In closing : I thank you once again Parisa and wish you the very best in all your future endeavors ! You and your family Stay Safe. Sincerely yours, David L. Zetye

Your greatest advocate
Parisa handled a PPO extension case for me. She was on top of it from the very beginning from filing FOIA requests, to gathering witnesses, to weeding through the allegations. She was well prepared for the hearing as well as she helped prepare myself and the witnesses involved. I'm very happy with Parisa's prompt communication, sharp wits, and knowledge of the Michigan legal system. I highly recommend Parisa to handle any case; she's an absolute rockstar.

Domestic Violence/ Felonious Assault
I was arrested and charged with felonious assault and domestic violence in Oakland County., MI. I am a Registered Nurse and live out of state and needed an experienced and reputable firm. I hired Lewis & Dickstein just two days before court and eagerly hired Parisa Sardines to represent me after consultation. My questions were thoroughly answered , she was easy to talk to, understanding and very personable. Parisa was always accessible no matter what time or day! While dealing with this ordeal I experienced several obstacles and experienced the worst the worst financial burden of my life and she helped lift some of that burden when I needed it most and reduced fees!! Thanks to Parisa, my charges were reduced to a lesser charge, keeping it off my public record and my professional license in good standing!!! Thank you again Parisa and thank you Lewis and Dickstein!
