I was wrongfully accused, served with a TRO and Mark was the best. Never dealt with anything like this in my life. Mark made me feel encouraged and comfortable. His confidence made me confident. He answered all my questions, emails and phone calls. We were prepared with our Response and witnesses, never even had to testify. Judge dismissed it. I could never have done this alone! This could have effected my job, etc...WORTH EVERY PENNY! I hope to never see this law firm again, no offense, but if I ever need an attorney again...THIS IS THE FIRM I WILL USE, hands down.

My first impression of this office came from the friendly, helpful, and professional nature of his paralegal secretary Josephina. Next, the caring, attentiveness, and listening skills of his Associate Attorney Mark Marion sealed the deal. While I didn't interact with Mr. Bajaj at all, I was at ease because of the high regard at which he was held by his staff. Mr. Bajaj and his team effectively stopped the filing of charges for his client, with only a day's notice, and before the impending arraignment. I hired Mr. Bajaj and his team near closing time at 4:00 pm and they produced results the following afternoon before 1:00 pm.

This was my first time contacting a lawyer, and called Mr. Bajaj based on his positive reviews. I felt at ease with my first phone call with Mr. Marion, and consultant the very same day. Mr. Bajaj was able to obtain exceptional results with my case, and no charges were pressed. Mr. Marion returned every phone call I made, and was understanding and patient each time. Josephina and the entire staff were also professional and sympathetic to my emotions. Under the circumstances, I had an exceptional experience from my first phone call. I will recommend this law firm 100%!

My experience working with Vikas and Mark Marion on my DUI case was great. They were able to settle on a plea where I did not have to do the 5 days of public work service I would have had to do otherwise, and the were able to have .02 taken off my recorded BAC. They were always easy to reach and would return phone calls and emails usually within the same day.

Our experience with Vikas Bajaj and his team of professionals was more than my husband and I ever could have asked for. Hopefully we won't ever need a defense attorney in the future, but in the event that we do, they will always have us as a client.
They conduct business in a quick and painless manner, taking all legal stress and responsibility off of your back to ensure you are in good hands. They're experienced and knowledgeable about every aspect of their profession, and have great relationships with other professionals in the realm of law, which can work to one's advantage.
My husband's case was a mess as a result of the defamation of character caused by the local media. Vikas Bajaj, Mark Marion and the rest of their team were able to sift through the nonsense at lightning speed, and present the case in the rightful way. As a result, we did not have to go to court, and the DA dismissed all charges.
I would highly recommend the Law Office of Vikas Bajaj to anyone who needs representation. You want these guys to go to bat for you!

Mr. Bajaj was a true professional at all times we met and went to court. He is one of the few honest lawyers you can actually trust. I consulted Mr. Bajaj back in late Nov. after my long term boyfriend's ex-wife decided to try and put a restraining order against me over false accusations she made about me where she involved her 5yr old child. The TRO was completely absurd and her accusations were a complete joke. However, she hired a lawyer because she was determined to make this absurd TRO a permanent RO. For this reason, I began searching for a lawyer and came across Mr. Bajaj who informed me how a RO could negatively impact my career as my position requires a clearance. Mr. Bajaj educated me on the things I had at risk that I had not been aware of and provided me with an effective solution and plan to clear my name. My first court hearing was held on the 23rd of Dec. where the judge we had been assigned seemed a little illogical on the decisions he was making in the cases before us. When our case came up, he surprisingly granted the petitioner a continuance being that they were "not prepared and were missing hard evidence against me". This caused a bigger stress in my family as we were unable to spend the holidays together and my boyfriend and I had to be coordinating the times I could arrive home, as we had been living together for about a year and he had 50% custody of his son - something the judge didn't care to consider. The petitioner requested a continuance for mid-Feb, but Mr. Bajaj was able to get our continuance within two weeks - shortly after the holidays. Our continuance was held on the 6th of Jan, where Mr. Bajaj had made a great judgment call to have a recorder present for our trial due to our assigned judge's irrational decisions and to be fully prepared if the need to appeal my case would be required. Initially, the judge wanted to simply issue an extended TRO verses moving to trial as this was the quickest solution for him to get home on a Friday afternoon. Having nothing to hide, I fought back and with Mr. Bajaj as my representative I demanded my case be heard and we moved to trial. After about 2.5hrs of questioning the petitioner, my witness (my bf) and her witness (her bf), the judge never bothered putting me on the stance and completely disregarded the TRO due to lack of evidence on the accusations being held against me. Mr. Bajaj made it clear how absurd the accusations against me had been and made it clear enough for the judge to see this was all due to jealousy from the petitioner towards me where I was never asked to go on the stance. In addition, we requested for my attorney fees to be reimbursed as it was unjust that I be given a TRO on top of a continuance during the holidays and given me all the financial and emotional stress due to someone's malicious acts due to jealousy. Of course, our judge didn't want to hear it and just wanted to go home. So, he requested we filed another motion for attorney fees. In April, we were given or court hearing for our motion for attorney fees where Mr. Bajaj once again presented him self in a very professional manner and did a great job representing me for the 3rd time and delivering the message of the injustice I had been put through. I honestly didn't expect a good outcome in our motion for attorney fees being that the judge had been a bit questionable, but we recently learned that the judge, shockingly, granted for my full attorney fees to be paid back. I continue to be in disbelief as our judge was not a very logical one and I only have Mr. Bajaj to thank.
I will not deny that there were occasions where I felt my emails were not being read or my messages were not being delivered every time I called his firm, but I can now tell you I was wrong. Allow Mr. Bajaj to do his job, trust him, be honest and he will represent you as needed.
I would absolutely recommend Mr. Bajaj to anyone who is placed in a unjust position as I was without hesitation.

Mr Bajaj and Mr Marion were my lifesavers! I have never gotten into trouble before and it was one major misunderstanding. They asked the right questions and made me feel like I was well taken care of. I didn't feel like I was in trouble and felt no judgment from the firm. With a quick turnaround, they were about to get my charges dismissed with ease. They are a bit higher in fees but WORTH EVERY PENNY. I called numerous times as one worried person would - the whole office was very professional and extremely helpful. Thank you tons!

I was wrongfully convicted and was facing felony charges. I felt like my life and everything I worked for was about to go down the drain and I felt hopeless. My family is based in India and I have no family or friend in US to support me. Mr. Bajaj not only defendant my case so intelligently but he and everyone in his office gave me unbelievable support at all the time.
My family in India found Mr. Bajaj online and they contacted him. I guess It was weekend but my family was frantic to talk to someone who could save my life.
Mr. Bajaj was able to dismissed my case and all my charges completely dropped. And I didn't even have to go to court. I have no words to say Thank you to him and it was one of the Best decision ever of me and my Family.
However, if anyone who really facing very serious charges and needs a competent lawyer to fight the case and not just a “Deal negotiator” then I think they can rely upon Mr. Bajaj and his magnificent Team.
Me and my entire family is forever thankful.

I would not believe one of these reviews. This attorney is by far the worst I have ever hired and the most expensive. Vikas Bajaj paints a picture that he is a great lawyer and he will work in your best interests. He has Poor communication. Vikas never returns my phone calls his secretary is the only one who will get back to me in regards to my case. I feel like Viaks looks out for the city's best interest. Please beware of these reviews because at least with me he was not as good as he portrays himself to be. BEYOND DISAPPOINTED!!!!!!1
