Highly Recommend
I chose the best firm to help me with my car accident case. Adrianos Facchetti referred me to some of the best doctors in the area to help me with my neck and back pain. They also made sure to negotiate my medical expenses so I could obtain the most out of my settlement. I had a wonderful experience as they listened and addressed all of my concerns and I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of a personal injury attorney.

I’m more than happy to be finish with my case. Mr. Adrianos Facchetti is one of the best attorney's I ever met. His knowledge of the law and ability to apply it to my case was far more extensive than the other attorneys that had been involved in the case. He and his team are highly experienced, professional, and efficient. I would like to highly recommend The Law Offices of Adrianos Facchetti!

Highly Recommended
Adrianos was very personable, helpful, and trustworthy throughout the entire process. I’ve heard many nightmare stories about how some attorneys drag their feet on cases or take a very large percentage of settlements. I’m fortunate enough to have dealt with this office under a very unfortunate circumstance. His staff is also very pleasant to work with as well.

DEFAMATION
ADRIANOS is one of the best in business... I had consulted a few attorneys but when I sat with Adrianos, in the first meeting I was convinced he was for me. THE KNOWLEDGE AND CONFIDENCE he had was amazing. he pointed out all plus and minuses and did not give false hopes. he also refrained me going in wrong directions which would have cost me some good money and would have made him more money but he guided me to be focused on my case and took me out with the least possible damage. I would highly recommend him and will choose him any day if in future if I am in need for this field. IN SHORT: HE CAN BE THE BEST CO-PILOT AT THE TIMES OF WORST STORMS.

Defamation anti-SLAPP appeal in Texas
I would highly recommend this lawyer for defamation matters, and anti-SLAPP matters. I hired Adrianos through the law firm Traverse Legal. I came to the law firm after I already had an anti-SLAPP motion for a defamation lawsuit denied in Texas. It was my immediate desire to appeal the dismissal. As my trial attorney has no appealate experience, I hired Traverse Legal to consult me with regards to my chances at winning on appeal. Adrianos' expert legal opinion was that my case was not strong enough to win on appeal, and I really appreciated that candor. Instead of pursuing an unwinnable appeal, Adrianos worked with the Plantiff to negotiate a very reasonable settlement offer. Adrianos drew the line with what he knew I could accept with a settlement, and represented my interests during these settlement negotiations very well. As it tuned out, the Plantiff was very stubborn and unreasonable with regards to settlement, which I only learned after these rounds of settlement discussions. While a settlement itself itself was not reached, it became very clear that a trial was the only way to resolve the case. Since Adrianos is in CA and I am in TX, I opted for a local trial atty for this additional trial work in Texas

Don’t hesitate to call him…he is truly the best around and will get you positive results in your case.

Best attorney in his field
As my attorney Adrianos and I dealt with complex and related cases that were more complicated in nature than typical litigation in this area of the law. He is honest, intelligent, knowledgeable, and a very competent and conscientious attorney. His experience includes everything from dealing with that first complaint, discovery, pre-trial matters, the legal process and the courts, dealing effectively and aggressively with opposing counsel and a host of other important matters. I'm certain his expertise on both sides of the law are equally good, so if you're looking to choose an attorney, Adrianos should be the first person to call.

Excellent Online Free Speech Lawyer
I run a website and had to deal with several issues arising out of what was written and user comments on the site. Adrianos was extremely educated in this area and was a true professional in handling my case. I highly recommend him for anything to do with defamation and free speech, especially online.

Amazing Lawyer!
I hired Adrianos during a really hard time in my life. I am in a good place now and Adrianos was instrumental in helping me get to this point. I was being sued for harassment and deformation of character. Really all it was when in came down to it was a fight with a friend from high school. It got nasty and vindictive. Adrianos main job was to keep me calm and stop me from incriminating myself. His wonderful people skills and negotiating skills got me an out of court settlement. Most important I never had to go through the stress of going to court. I'm in better place now and I am back to teaching. Without Adrianos my 16 year career as a teacher would have been in the dumps. He kept my record clean for teaching and I am forever grateful. I would hire him again without a doubt but I hope I never have to!

An Excellent Advocate, Worry About the Client
I spoke with Attorney Facchetti as a second-year law student who was being threatened by an ex for alleged libel. Attorney Facchetti refused to manipulate the situation as many attorneys did. He told me what we would do in the case that this moved forward. He refused to allow me to pay him for the initial consultation. I am left with the distinct impression that he works hard for his client, but does not take advantage of the situation. He told me to contact him when, and if this situation escalated. We really need more attorneys on the bar like him. What a marked impression he left on me as an attorney who is knowledgeable, but not an opportunist.

Incredible Attorney, Incredible results
Mr. Facchetti is a true professional. He is well-respected among his peers as well as among the doctors who cared for me. His knowledge of the law and his positive demeanor made an otherwise difficult experience a smooth one. His office staff is attentive and very capable. I was confident throughout the entire experience that I was being treated fairly and with respect. I have the highest regard for Mr. Facchetti and his staff.

Attorney who helped a small business owner!
I reached out to Mr. Facchetti after being referred by a close friend. I was having trouble with a customer who didn't like our services despite how hard we tried to please him. The customer wrote false claims trying to hurt my business on the internet. After a few months of lost business, Mr. Facchetti was able to get the internet posts taken down. Thank you so much for your help!!

I would hire Adrianos again in a second.
I have an online community on autograph collecting where protecting collectors against buying forgeries is the main topic. I was unjustly sued for defamation by an autograph dealer I commented on. I researched attorneys specializing in defamation and free speech issues throughout California, heard good things about Adrianos Facchetti and spoke with him. Before I retained him I wanted to see him in action, so I went to his next court hearing. Adrianos was representing Yelp! He was perfectly prepared and won the case--and Yelp was awarded thier legal fees and costs. Adrianos represented me equally as well, winning our case and legal fees as well. Not only is Adrianos remarkably good at defamation cases, he's very fair with his fees. I was also impressed that, because he has done so may cases like these, he needs to do less research and already has files with most of the legal cases he needs to site. That reduced my costs by a significant margin. I was so impressed with Adrianos's work that I hired him for another case that is still pending. During the course of that case we realized we would have to depose someone that we hadn't expected to, who had consulted with Adrianos years before. Because that would have been a conflict of interest for Adrianos, I unfortunately had to change representation. I would hire Adrianos again in a second if I ever need an attorney for a defamation-related issue again.

Simply Outstanding!
I was involved in a situation where a business was threatening me with a defamation lawsuit. From the moment I consulted with Adrianos, I knew I had picked the right attorney. He was very specific about defamation law, explained why I was not guilty of defamation, and agreed represent me and to write a response letter to opposing counsel. The letter was beyond anything I could have hoped for: multiple pages of detailed legal analysis, citations of various defamation laws, and a clear plan of what our intentions were if this business were to move forward with this case. Furthermore, the response letter was drafted less than a week after my initial consultation! I am beyond impressed and grateful at the service I received. Furthermore, with Regan's help, I was always up-to-date with the process and all my questions were answered promptly. I have dealt with a few other law firms over the years that have left me hanging a few times for several days with no contact and no updates. Rest assured, this will not happen here. You are in good hands with Adrianos and Reagan. They are thorough, fast, friendly, and professional. Thank you!

Adrianos Is A Force To Be Reckoned With!
There is a reason why Adrianos Facchetti's blog comes up first when you are searching for a defamation lawyer. He is the man you want in your corner! From the moment we spoke on the phone, to our first consultation meeting, I knew I had found the best attorney in the field. Adrianos is trustworthy, kind and compassionate, and his knowledge is priceless! Upon retaining Mr. Facchetti, he was very informative and patient with me, always quick to respond to my calls and emails. Reagan is wonderful too, always pleasant and going beyond what's expected to ensure your well being. Knowing I had Adrianos fighting for me gave me peace of mind that was invaluable. The fear I felt regarding my situation completely vanished when Adrianos assured me he was going to do everything in his power to protect me. Underneath his calm demeanor and quick-witted sense of humor, is an aggressive, brilliant attorney who will bring the opposing party to their knees. We are forever grateful Adrianos was there when we needed him.

The 'Bruce Lee' of law
Unforeseen circumstances forced me to seek legal assistance when a teenager decided to play 'bumper cars' with my rear bumper to see if he could push it to my back seat. He was almost successful. After two operations and being in a cervical collar for more than twenty months, due to a precondition of COPD Adrianos with his able bodied assistant Reagan Hyland sprung into action. First having come to my home, being extremely patient with me and allowing me to tell the circumstances as I remembered them Adrianos explained what he would be willing to do and exactly what he and hs firm would charge, what their obligation would be and what my obligation would be. There was absolutely no guess work. From then until the settlement of the case Adrianos and/or Reagan kept me informed as to every step that was taken by our side or that of the opposition. What also was extremely impressive to me was that each and every e-mail and/or phone call was answered quickly and efficiently. The reason I titled this review, "The 'Bruce Lee' of law is due to Adrianos weighing approximately that of Bruce Lee but also having his determination, strategical strength and not backing down from an opponent. Thanks Adrianos and Reagan, you two are the best.

Extremely Helpful!
Mr. Facchetti is the go to lawyer for any internet review problems. We had a client with whom we had a financial dispute with and he got all his friends to sabotage us and write libelous reviews. We lost thousands of dollars. We called Mr. Facchetti and not only did he explain to us the laws, our rights, and what we can do about it, he went deeper and enlightened us to the psychology behind these types of sabotaging actions. He explained how many times reviewers just want to be acknowledged and feel they're right. He suggested before we take legal action to try and negotiate. It worked out really well. The reviewers removed their reviews and no legal action was necessary. We're very grateful for Mr. Facchetti, and even though we hope we don't have to use him again in the future, we are confident we will get the job done.
