Tabibnia Law Firm Review
A few years ago, I was dealing with a serious legal matter. I suddenly learned that a major corporation had obtained a large civil money judgment against me in court. When I became aware of the judgment and debt, I was angry and concerned about my financial future. I approached other attorneys for help, but they all said that there was little they could do because the judgment against me was too old; the court would not re-open the case. So, I decided to turn to and hire the Tabibnia Law Firm because I was aware of their strong reputation in civil law matters and criminal defense cases. Mr. Tabibnia went out of his way to fight for me. To my surprise, he convinced the court to set aside the judgment against me and to re-open the case. And after getting the case re-opened, I was even more astonished when he got the case completely dismissed just months later! So, I went from having a large money judgment against me to getting the judgment removed and case dismissed in a matter of months. Throughout the process, I found Mr. Tabibnia to be capable, aggressive, honest, competent and fair with his fees. Most importantly, he kept me informed throughout the case. I cannot recommend the Tabibnia Law Firm highly enough.

False and malicious allegation of felony.
Sometimes in the month of September 13th, 2022, I came back from work, a Nurse ,working double shifts. As reclined to my sofa, on my scrubs, my spouse who has been threatening to poison me or make sure that I go to jail if I don't divorce, came on me that morning; slammed our wedding picture on me after inscribed 'it's over between us'. As a shock to me, I stood up and collected the wood framed wedding picture, she ran in to kitchen and took a wine glass cup and tore my left arm. I called in COPs. She went and fabricated all manner of lies to implicate me, as she boasted that she'll send me back to my country. She alleged I was the aggressor. I hired Cyrus S.Tabinia law firm. They went to action and got justice. Cyrus was to me throughout my case like a brother. He is an Attorney you can trust, with wealth of experiences. Go for Him.

Cyrus was very professional since the first time meeting him. If I were to ever have any questions regarding my case. Cyrus would also send me reminders in case I were to forget to which my court dates were and what I needed to complete before going to court.

Outstanding Legal Representation. Thank you!
I had the pleasure of working with the Cyrus at Tabibnia Law on my case and I could not have been more pleased with the results. From the start, he gave my case the time and attention it deserved and showed a deep understanding and knowledge of the law. He provided clear guidance through the entire process and was always available to answer questions and provide legal advice. He really went the extra mile to make sure I got the best possible outcome and was extremely understanding and patient, always taking the time to explain the details and nuances of the law to me. I am very grateful for his expertise and the care they took in my case and it was definitely worth every penny. I highly recommend his services and would not hesitate to use him again in the future. Tabibnia Law is truly a top-notch law firm and I am so thankful to have worked with them.

Dedicated attorney and advocate
As an attorney, I get requests for referrals often. Generally, I am hesitant to make referrals. However, I refer my potential clients to Cyrus Tabibnia. He is prepared, knowledgeable and fights for his clients. He is ethical and compassionate towards his clients at their most vulnerable time. I highly recommend my colleague.

Capable, aggressive and caring lawyer
I was referred to Cyrus Tabibnia by a friend on a felony drug possession criminal matter. I have to admit, I had never had a court case before. So, even though I knew I was innocent, I was scared, confused and ashamed. Would I go to prison? What would happen to my future, my family, my job prospects? Despite my initial anxiety, Cyrus impressed me by guiding me through every step of the way. He first took the time to explain the whole criminal legal process to me, which decreased my fear and made me more comfortable. Throughout the case, Cyrus put on a master class of relentlessness, competence, and knowlege. He is also a very caring lawyer and fought for my case at every turn, even at times when I would get emotional and wanted to give up. Cyrus ultimately got my case dismissed! Because of Cyrus, my future is secure. I could not have been happier with the results. I highly recommend him for your criminal legal needs!

I am here, writing on the behalf of Mr. Cyrus Tabibnia. From the very first moment we formally introduced ourselves to one another, I felt nothing but sincerity and authenticity from this man. At that very moment I knew, that this was the person ideal to represent me and to do diligence. In which in fact he did do so. Was I not only impressed and satisfied completely, but I was not suprised not one bit with the outcome. I highly suggest this gentlemen if you are in deed seeking counsel from someone who legitimately cares, and who will go the extra mile and above and beyond for you.

Case dismissed and restraining order removed!
I was referred to Cyrus Tabibnia through a friend of mine that Cyrus had assisted in the past. The minute that I sat down with the attorney Cyrus Tabibnia for a consultation. I knew that he was the right attorney for my case. I noticed that he was very thorough and technical from the very beginning of our interaction. I was facing deportation for an assault case in which I was clearly defending myself. The ending result was a dismissal and removal of a restraining order after proving that it was a clear case of self defense. Now, thanks to Cyrus I can clearly go back to work and my family. Without worrying about this incident staying on my record. I strongly recommend Cyrus Tabibnia to anyone that is facing legal issues.

Case dismissed!
Where do I begin? I was accused of a crime I didn’t commit in which I was being charged as a felon which was later lowered to a misdemeanor. As I told Cyrus what happened he knew exactly what to do and he walked me through the whole process. I was worried about having a criminal record but Cyrus reassured me. Fast forward what seems to be forever, Cyrus got my case dismissed! If you’re looking for a criminal defense attorney, look no where else because you found the right one. Thank you so much for all your help Cyrus!

Unequaled Acumen and Care! Truly a great attorney
As someone with no criminal history or encounter with the law ever in my life, to suddenly face a false accusation was financially and most of all emotionally devastating and disorienting. Attorney Tabibnia intervened as an unparalleled steady hand, quickly demonstrating his acumen and offering a real assessment of what action to take and probable outcome. He showed his steadiness, his knowledge, and also was quick to take action at every step of my ultimately successful case. Attorney Tabibnia is a truly unequaled attorney who stands out among his peers. He also showed he is an excellent human being with gracious care for my case, for the truth, and for me as his client. I highly recommend him to anyone in need of an intelligent attorney.

Perfect blend of Care and Professionalism
As a young man nothing in this century there is nothing more nerve wrecking and stressful than dealing with a false felony assault accusation. In hiring Cyrus many of my worries quickly dissipated, as he was extremely attentive and receptive to all the information I gave him. Cyrus has made himself available to me at just about every moment, never in the dark or needing to follow up. I'm eternally grateful for choosing Cyrus to represent me, as my false accusation never even reached the official court due to our extremely strong case. I'd recommend Cyrus to just about anyone who appreciates clear and effective communication as well as strategic planning. 10 out of 10.

Supportive, Responsive, Effective
Facing serious charges I found him to be rassuring without over-promising. In the long time from arrest to courtroom he was accessible and informative. The outcome was truly beyond my idea of the most favorable possibility. I would hire him again in an instant and suggest others do the same.

Most trust worthy attorney that gets the job done!
If I could leave more stars on this review I would! Cyrus is an exceptional attorney and without a doubt, the best around! He has a hell of a reputation getting the job done with results. When I got into a sticky situation, Cyrus, being the amazing attorney he is, kept me confident and calm the moment I got a chance to speak to him on the phone. Unlike most attorneys I've spoken to, he always has your best interest in mind and in my experience, my expectations have been exceeded far beyond anything I could have hoped! I would highly refer him to as he has provided the best advice and services, with due diligence. He definitely will go out of his way to get the job done-- and that's what I really appreciate of him! He certainly is the most knowledgeable and thorough attorney I've got the pleasure to work with -- especially when results and trust matter. Cyrus is the man! Don't hesitate to contact him.
