Professional and Trustworthy
Dmitry was very professional and helpful with my case. I found it refreshing he knew the intimate details about my case even when I called without an appointment. I liked how he personally kept me updated about the status of my case. I was glad that I worked with such an energized and caring attorney.

Fixed everything - best possible result
I live out of state and needed a lawyer to resolve a legal problem dating back several years. Due to my previous attorneys and competent, I had a bench warrant and was facing redoing hundreds of hours of community service and possibly some jail time. With a quick call, Dmitry Gorin looked at my case and identified the main issue and suggested a plan. I liked how he was very professional and knew his field of business, so I hired him. Within two weeks, they appeared in court and fixed everything which was literally the best possible result. Years of aggravation was suddenly lifted. He did his job very well. Thank you Dmitry.

Needed a petition filed to with the Court. Very complicated and he did it right first. Even with DA trying to throw a wrench in the issue. Right first time! Problem solved! Thanks

Skilled, compassionate, effective.
I needed to submit an important petition to the court. While looking over the required forms and instructions, it quickly became clear to me that this process was complicated and beyond my skill-set. After considering several law firms, I decided on Eisner-Gorin because their ratings and credentials are truly impressive. Their client reviews are filled with sincere praise and gratitude. After a brief meeting at their Van Nuys offices, the team immediately started work on my petition which they submitted to the court within a few days. They also filed additional paperwork with the appropriate agencies. From there, it took a few months for the petition to work its way through the system but the outcome was worth the wait. The court granted my petition. I sent the following message to everyone on the team’s email list: “I am profoundly grateful to you and everyone on your team. Resolution of this issue has lifted an inexpressibly heavy weight from my shoulders. Thank you.” Everyone on the Eisner/Gorin team was always accessible, highly efficient, compassionate and professional. I would whole-heartedly recommend them to anyone in need of legal representation.

Wonderful team
I first contacted Dmitry and team over 10 years ago, and they helped me with a false accusation. When I needed help again, I came back ,and they helped. They care -- this team knows their stuff, and they actually do care about clients. They're honest, trustworthy, and they listen. Sometimes we get stuck in bad situations, this is a group of people who can help you out.

Couldn't have been in better hands
Dmitry and his team were great. They kept on top of my case every step of the way. If it weren't for them I would probably be in jail as a felon. Not only did they offer me great advise, but they fought hard for me and had my charges reduced. After finishing my probation, Dmitry was able to get my case expunged and I have been able to go on with life and not have to worry about being turned down for jobs because of my background check. I am so grateful for everything Dmitry has done for me. I hope to never need legal counsel again, but if I do, I will definitely be calling Dmitry.

Reliable
Was referred to this legal team through my employer after being the victim of some pretty outlandish accusations by a patient of mine. Eisner Gorin were able to handle it with the detective before it became a case, which was a huge relief to myself and my family.

The best attorney to call for criminal offenses.
I was referred to Dmitry by an attorney friend and I was very glad that he took on my son's case for a criminal charge. Dmitry was very professional, thorough and attentive to my son's case and put together a very well crafted defense position that resulted with the DA rejected the case and file no charges against him. I would highly recommended Dmitry to anyone that need a criminal defense attorney. It would be the best thing you can do for your case.

What a great team!
A little over a month ago I was overwhelmed with legal trouble and confusion on what I could do next to better my situation. That all changed the day I called into Mr. Eisner’s office. I worked with him during a difficult time in my life and he was very professional and vastly informative, he was also there to be a personal mentor in a time when I desperately needed guidance. I always felt Alan and his team truly cared about me - professional, available to speak with and approachable. I interviewed maybe 10 other lawyers before going with him and his team because he simply was more knowledgeable than the rest and also made me feel at ease when I thought my life was about to get flipped upside down. Alan and his team are sincere and hard-fighting attorneys who will stand with you to guide you through the legal issues you have. Alan and his team saved me from a felony charge and now I can fulfill my daily responsibilities and live life normally again. Words can't describe how satisfied I am with Alan Eisner and his team for their services. Don't worry, don't wonder, don't assume the worst. Call!

Pre-filing intervention
We reached out to Dmitry, Robert, and his team on a weekend and his team was very responsive to us. After being falsely accused of a crime I did not commit, this firm’s expertise in pre-filing intervention proved to be very beneficial to me as all charges were rejected before being filed.

Helped to get everything dropped!
Dmitry and his team were quick to respond and quick to act. They handled everything very professionally and were supportive throughout the whole process. Eventually, his team were able to get everything dropped. They've lifted a huge weight and I don't know what I would've done without them.

Recommend & Trustworthy
Glad to have retained Dmitry / Eisner Gorin law firm! They have so much experience and knew exactly how to approach my case. Dmitry Gorin was previously a district attorney and he understood my case particulars. After I decided to retain them, I felt so much relief because I knew I could trust their work. They intervene immediately to be in your corner. I’m glad I found this team & I would highly recommend.

Student
During one of the most unpleasant times in my life thus far, I am beyond thankful I contacted the lawyers at the Eisner-Gorin group. From the moment I made the first phone call I knew I was in excellent hands and my case would be taken care of the best way possible. The whole team was very attentive with all the details surrounding my case to yield the desired outcome, a dismissed case. Their professionalism is impeccable and if I ever find myself surrounded by legal trouble, I would not hesitate reaching out to the Eisner-Gorin group.

Outstanding in every way - will never work with anybody else
I retained Dmitry and his team to work on a tricky and high stakes case. First off, their retainer was half the size of some of the other similar firms I consulted with, and their experience with cases like mine was second to none. Dmitry and his team went to work immediately, and ultimately prevented the filing of any charges. I won 100%. They were everything you would hope for in a lawyer: aggressive yet strategic, extremely savvy, responsive, and supportive. I would recommend Dmitry to anybody and would never work with anybody else.

The best lawyer
Dmitry and his team are simply the best. I was in a very scary situation, and I immediately contact his team to help me sort things out. Things dragged out and there were times when I lost hope. Thanks to Dmitry's confidence and his expertise, the charges were dropped, and all of that weight suddenly dropped. I cannot thank Dmitry enough for all of his efforts and reassurance. I would highly recommend him and his team.
