As crazy as it may seem, it took only a minute or two of talking to him that I just knew that it was Mr. Arzili I wanted to have as my attorney. I was being charged with petty theft with a prior which luckily got placed as a misdemeanor but easily could have been a felony right away. However, regardless of that, there was still a big chance I could've been given jail time because of the prior conviction on my record. When I retained Mr. Arzili, the one thing he let me know was that my stress was now his stress and that he would take care of me as if it was his own problem. That not only relieved me of the tension, but it also allowed me to trust that he wouldn't do me wrong.
I was right to think that because the results proved his expertise and his dedication towards his clients. I ended up being sentenced with 3yrs summary probation and a fine...NO JAIL TIME. Even the judge was amazed by the results. The only person i can thank is Mr. Arzili because he kept his word and did the best he could for me and ended up doing even better. He is a real person with a real heart and thats what you need in a lawyer to know you are in good hands. He works with you to make sure you can afford his services and never demands more than you can handle. I really believe that MR. Arzili was sent to me by God himself to take care of me because he did exactly that and if you are looking for a lawyer that will do his best to get you the best results, Anthony Arzili is the man for you without a doubt.

What was supposed to be a GREAT year, took a turn for the worst right from the beginning. The charges I was facing could have been something that I would have had to live with the rest of my life! I had no idea what to do, or who to turn to...
I had loss of sleep one night and decided to go online to look for help. I had NO idea what to look for and with no direction. I came across a few Attorneys, leaving messages with all of them. After speaking with a few of them, it was clear they only wanted $$$ and were not too concerned with the severity of my situation at hand.
I received a call from Anthony the same day and after speaking with him, you knew his concern was in the right direction!!! Anthony and his assistant were able to take time out of their Sunday for a consultation. This showed a team that was dedicated to their work, a KICK butt and take names later combination!
They were able to put me at ease by taking the weight off my shoulders and putting it on theirs. They allowed me to focus back on the important things in my life without having to worry about what waited ahead...
Anthony constantly kept me up to date with status of my case, making it easy to communicate via phone/ email/ text. I can HONESTLY say he made me feel very at ease throughout the entire process! He was able to get my case dismissed with a small fine and no major repercussion!
Now I can continue my life without the FEAR of what could have been...
Please DO NOT hesitate to render his services if you value the outcome of your situation. This is one attorney that I would not think twice about having anyone I know use!!!

Attorney Anthony Arzili is a top notch attorney that I have had the privilege to know for almost 15 years, from the time he was the star student of our criminal law class, to today, as routinely gets unbelievable results on the most difficult of cases. He is the type of attorney that other attorneys come to for answers and advice. Unequivically one of the best criminal defense attorneys in Southern California!

Relationship: Worked together on matter
I worked with Anthony on a trial where after he cross-examined the main prosecution witness, the case was dismissed. He vigourously fights for his clients and has a natural talent to connect with the jury. If a friend or a loved one ever needed an attorney, I will highly recommend Anthony,
