Professional and Understanding
Rana has helped me with multiple cases including my DUI which was an extremely stressful situation prior to having him assisting me. Once I consulted with him I felt a huge weight off of my shoulders he took care of everything. I am glad I hired him and would do so if I need to in the future.

Rana Parsanj - An excellent Attorney
Rana Parsanj successfully defended me in a criminal matter with confidence, poise and clarity. Mr. Parsanj also operates with a "humane" touch and an experienced yet unassuming manner that gave me confidence that he was the guy that could get the job done for me.

The best and most understanding criminal defense lawyer I've ever met
Well I'm not a guy that gets in trouble too much but I'll never go to court without a lawyer and God guiding me in the right direction to pick this lawyer and he has done so much for me and my case that I had was a felony and he was understanding and he was very smart and communicated with me very well always on time always got me in and out of the courtroom first it was always motivated to beat my case and he did I was so fortunate to have found him so if you need a good criminal defense lawyer I'm telling you he's the one of the best and he's just going to get better as he gets older
