Earlier this year, I made the worst mistake I've ever made in my life. I'll spare you the details of the night leading into it - just know that before the night was through, I was sleeping on a concrete bed in a holding cell, having been booked for a DUI. These were the worst circumstances I've ever faced - I'm not usually prone to mistakes this drastic. But everybody slips up here and there, and that's one thing Elliot helped me realized. It's not the end, rather just a very enduring challenge to take head on.
I'm very grateful to have found Elliot as quickly as I did. After being released the next day, I immediately sought help from people close to me who I know could get me through the ugliest of situations. One of my best friends recommended that I use AVVO to shop around for a good, reputable lawyer in my area. This friend highly insisted that I call as many as possible to get a better picture of what kind of legal counsel I could afford, and who would be there to really work hard on my case. It didn't take too long for me to come across Elliot's page on this site. I immediately recognized from his profile picture that he was a bruin - the thumbnail photo is an iconic hallway in front of Royce Hall where all the soon to be grads are still out there taking pictures today.
The day after I was released from jail, I was in shock. I couldn't believe something like this could happen to me, especially given my history of working closely alongside law enforcement officials. It took me a while to muster up the courage and start doing as my friend had suggested - step one: find yourself a good lawyer. I must've called about a dozen or so different law offices before I got in touch with Elliot. It was about 9PM on a weekday, and I really didn't expect anyone to answer when I called his office. Yet soon as I called, he was the one to answer my phone. I gave him some basic info on what had happened, and in less than a minute he already had all the pertaining information concerning my arrest and case. I immediately knew at this point Elliot was the attorney to go with, especially given his reasonable rate.
Elliot took all the headaches away from this entire ordeal. I didn't even have to show up to court, make annoying phone calls to the DMV, or deal with the hoards of paperwork and insurance issues after the fact. Elliot took care of everything, and made constantly checked up on me to make sure I was taken care of every step of the way.
After all the discovery and cross examinations came to a close, I was still facing the DUI charge due to some unfortunate witness statements working against my favor. I was in shock, and couldn't believe what I was still facing. When I met with Elliot to discuss this matter, he even told me I looked like I'd been run over by a bus. But he said to not even worry about anything, to take the whole month off and get myself in a good place and told me that we'd meet back again in a month.
A month goes by, I come back from a relaxing vacation and go take care of matters with Elliot. He came back to me with some good news, news that meant there was a chance the DUI charges could be reduced to a wet reckless. We go to court together the next day, and he maintains his professional demeanor. Before going up to the judge, he pulls me outside and tells me we did it. Elliot worked miracles that day, because due to the circumstances I was facing, it was next to impossible to get the DUI charges dropped. Yet he pulled it off, and now here I am sitting comfortably at work, enjoying life as usual (albeit with some added court duties to take care of).
The whole process was effortless and worry free, all thanks to the excellent services Elliot was able to provide. I'm glad I went with a UCLA grad to get me through the worst of times, Elliot had my back since the first time I gave his office a ring. Can't go wrong hiring Elliot for any representation you need, he'll get you through all of it. Thank you, Elliot.

Why exactly did I pick Elliot?
After getting arrested and released for a FELONY DUI I thought my life was ruined! The idea of getting a felony was just too overbearing for me to handle. What's worse is that it was right around Christmas time! I was getting so much anxiety that it just ruined the holiday spirit for me. However, after speaking to Elliot, not only was he sincere and honest, but he was very straight forward and compassionate about my situation. He was the only attorney that I felt most comfortable with. Thankfully, I made the right choice of hiring him. Elliot goes above and beyond to ensure that I received the best possible outcome.
I received a VERY generous sentence even though I had gotten myself into an accident during my DUI.
If you're still not sure who to hire, look no further!

Elliot Zarabi is a great lawyer! He is always available to talk to, and he is efficient. He got my misdemeanor expunge in exchange for minimal community service. Best lawyer in the LA area!

Elliot is an incredible professional. I was pulled over for a DUI and was at a loss of what to do. Calling Elliot Zarabi was the best decision I made! He took my out-of-control situation and handled everything while taking the time to always make sure I understood everything that was happening. I highly recommend his services to anyone. Thanks for all our your help Elliot, you were there when I needed you the most.

Elliot has literally SAVED MY LIFE! As good as it gets is strictly an understatement... Elliot deserves the Noble Peace Prize and the Pulitzer for his good and noble deeds through a heavy social system. Sometimes things can be alleged where either party has committed a wrongdoing, but our justice system can sometimes be so... fickle at best. During the hard and miserable times I had to endure Elliot has been there to cheer me up, cheer me on, and guide me through it all. Ultimately, Elliot has made the entire process smooth, reassuring, and quick to resolve even though I should have been drowning in stress and spiritual disaster-he was there every step of the way... EXCELLENT professional, SUPERB Lawyer, and a truly CARING individual. AAA+

I very much appreciated Elliot's no BS and honest approach when dealing with my case. I understand he has several cases and clients going on every day but he always made sure I felt like I was his only one. He said he'll do the best he can and he did. Got my DUI reduced to a lesser sentence and I couldn't have done it without him. Not only is he I think one of the most down to earth lawyers I spoke to ( and I spoke to several phony ones, using the same lines and fear based pressure to hire them, before I hired him) but he's also the most reasonable. And he'll get the job done. He knows what he's doing. I highly recommend him.

I currently live in NC, but needed to resolve some legal issues I had in CA from when I lived there about 15 years ago. I found Elliot Zarabi through a google search. We spoke on the found and he really sounded like he knew what he was doing and could actually help me. Since I found him on the internet and didn't know anything about him I was very apprehensive. But he really earned my trust. I was facing jail time, but Elliot was able to get me home monitoring instead. I moved to CA for a few months to serve my sentence, and Elliot even helped me find a job during that time. His job was finished, why would he bother to help me get a job? Well, he's shown me that's the kind of guy he is, he actually cares.
It was a long process but he was there for me every step of the way. I really appreciate all his help, advice, and for fighting for me. It has not been easy being away from home and being in Ca to serve my home monitoring, but I know it could've been A LOT worse. I'm very thankful for Elliot, I know finding him on google was a blessing.

This was my second time offense and I was very worried about how this would impact my work, family, and everyday life. I got in touch with Elliot and was immediately put at ease with his demeanor, professionalism, and upfront approach to my case. He was on top of all appearances, communications, and was sure to follow up with me regarding next steps. While I do have to pay the consequences for my actions, Eliott was there every step of the way to ensure I was well represented and overall had my back. I definitely recommend his services!

He didn't give up till the last minute and somehow managed to save me from a misdemeanor charge! Also helps that he's cares about his clients.
