"Mr. Vialtsin is a talented privately retained criminal defense attorney. He finished number one in his law school class and has brought his intelligence and relentless determination into his practice where he has achieved tremendous results for his clients. A judge analogized a plea bargain he made with a prosecutor as "pulling a rabbit out of a hat". He brings creative and practical methods into his negotiations with prosecutors to get his clients the minimal sentence possible. If anyone approached me with criminal issues, he's the first person I think of for referral."
