Professional and caring
Mr. Tsimberg helped me through a very difficult weekend. Not knowing all the legal ins and outs myself, he was very helpful in quelling some of my fears and giving me hope regarding the restraining order process. If but for the distance, I would hire Mr. Tsimberg in a heart beat. As it is, I would recommend him highly for consultation regarding any immediate legally concerns.

Recommended lawyer
Dimitry helped me a lot with closing an international transaction in between me and an American antiquities collector. He studied and found solutions in the complex matter of antiquities import regulations of the United States and Europe and made a solid contract. I'm happy to have worked with him and would do so again in the future.

Beyond our expectations
We had a problem collecting money from one of our customers. We were nervous about getting a lawyer involved as we had never used one before and wasn't sure of the costs. After Dimitry sent a firm letter, followed by a law suit, the customer called and paid as soon as it was filed. Dimitry gave excellent advise, was patient with us and took his time to explain or options. The process was swift and the costs were minimal. I would heartily recommend Dimitry as a professional, experienced and friendly lawyer.

Concise, straightforward resolutions from Mr. Tsimberg
I spoke with Mr. Tsimberg regarding a complicated family company matter where my hands were tied. He counseled me in clear terms regarding how to proceed on my own to resolve the issues, though he is available if I need further assistance (and I will absolutely hire him if additional complications arise). Mr. Tsimberg listened carefully and answered all my questions, and explained the best solutions to navigate through tricky family minefields. he made it easy for me. so A+ for intelligence, advice and professionalism.

Smart and honest!
I hired Dimitry for my divorce case (which was taking forever), after spending more than $20,000 on an attorney and not seeing any result. Finally my ex offered me $10K to settle. So I fired my prior attorney and hired Dimitry. Dimitry completely changed the situation. Dimitry helped me get more than $100,000. He had my ex pay for his attorney fee, the money I wasted on previous attorney, and even put good amount of money in my pocket. I am very happy with the work Dimitry did on my case, and I would highly recommend him to everyone who is seeking an honest, smart lawyer. Dimitry is experienced and knows how to win cases. He also stayed in close contact with me at every stage. Dimitry took care of me like a close friend, and I cannot thank him enough. It is very rare to find such an incredible lawyer, with good knowledge, honest and reasonable fee.

Priceless advice
I retained Dimitry for a misdemeanor that I was wrongly accused of. (I know, they all say that) Dimitry walked me through the process ultimately having my case dismissed. I was so grateful that Dimitry knew the in and outs of the courthouse with directions, as specific as the correct room numbers that were spot on. Dimitrys professionalism and practice are sure to help in that time of need. I would reccomend his service for anyone in need of legal advice and representation.

An Outstanding Professional, Highly Recommended.
Due to the complexities of my matter, I had Dimitry recommended to me by another lawyer. I was told that he is an exceptional lawyer and would be the best person to represent me. From our initial conversation until the successful resolution of my matter Dimitry was extremely helpful, professional and knowledgeable. He was also completely transparent and fair with his fees. If any friends or family members required the services of an outstanding lawyer I would have no hesitation in recommending Dimitry.

Excellent choice.
I would highly recommend Dimitry and have recommended him to several business acquaintances, friends and family members. I hired Dimitry for legal assistance with my architectural drafting business, and I found him to be highly knowledgeable, easy to work with, and readily accessible/easy to reach through both email and over the phone. Dimitry did solve my businesses legal dilemma and I will certainly use him again when I need his services in the future. -Vince

Dimitry is an outstanding attorney – I am so happy to have found him. With Dimitry's great legal skills my wife and I prevailed against the defendant at trial. And again with Dimitry's efforts my wife and I prevailed against the defendant's appeal and against the defendant's further action in the California Supreme Court. Our legal situation was very convoluted and in a short period of time Dimitry was able to pull out the “important information” from the “not so important information”. I highly recommend Dimitry Tsimberg.

Dimitry Saved my Home from Foreclosure
In February of this year (2010), a trustee’s sale notice was posted on my front door. My home was being foreclosed, the sale date was just three weeks away. I was about to become another statistic in the huge foreclosure crisis that has shaken this nation. After dragging its feet for several months, the bank had turned down my request for a loan modification and by then I owed $25000 in arrears. The only option appeared to be bankruptcy. This was when I turned to Attorney Dimitry Tsimberg for help. After a very thorough review, he wrote a lengthy letter to the bank detailing errors it had made in the modification calculations as well as in the foreclosure process. Much to my relief, the trustee’s sale was postponed and the bank agreed to review the modification documents. About a month later, Dimitry called me with the good news that the bank had agreed to a trial modification. Thanks to Dimitry, I have my home and a very affordable mortgage payment. My interest rate is down to 2%. After 5 years it will go up – but no more than 4%. My experience with Dimitry is that he is very thorough in analyzing a case and honest and upfront about what he can and cannot do for you. Once he takes your case, you have a bulldog on your side!

Valuable Assistance with Intellectual Property and Copyrights
I needed help in my small business interpreting copyrights, trademarks and intellectual property. Mr. Tsimberg explained the laws to me and helped me with changes that I needed to make in order to continue in business. He stays in communication with me and responds quickly to my questions!

Really Helped Me
Attorney Tsimberg has a sharp mind and is very knowledgeable. I gave him a summary of my case and showed him some documents, and he understood the complete story right away and quickly figured out a good strategy. I didn't need to explain things again. I also found him to be very trustworthy - he did whatever was best for me and was always honest with me about my legal options and costs. My case had to be handled immediately and confidentially, and Dimitry was there for me from start to finish. Thanks! I'm happy to recommend him.

Fast & Helpful
I run by business from Ukraine and I had troubles with one of American web design company. I found Mr. Tsimberg myself through internet and I was very happy to work with him. He was very helpful and made many things to solve my problem there.. It is always big deal to make something work on distance but Dimitry was very good in it. What can I say more? Thanx God that there are such lawyers like Mr. Tsimberg.

WhenI retained Dimitry as my lawyer, he seemed great over the phone, so we signed a contract based on prepaid trust account. I thought I could trust him and there wouldn’t be invoices regarding attorneys fees without prior explanation. Everything went fine until I learned that Dimitry was playing very much his own game behind my back. Although I received emails from him constantly, he was hiding a few important things regarding my case. When I found out, I asked via email what was going on and his attitudes changed immediately. He didn’t take any responsibility and I started to receive rude emails from him. I fired him and asked a refund but he ignored my request. Furthermore, when he found out that I was going to fire her, she emailed me a fake invoice despite our ‘prepaid’ contract. I filed a complaint The State Bar and retained a new attorney. A few weeks later my new attorney received a long email from Dimitry , saying nasty stuff about me. It’s best to avoid him from my experiences

Response from Dimitry Tsimberg March 10, 2016
I think you have me confused with someone else. You do not identify yourself, so I cannot confirm if you were an actual client or what case was involved. I do not understand what you mean by "prepaid contract" - I charge for work done based on time spent. I have not received any requests for refund nor complaints (especially from State Bar), and I do not recall corresponding with a new attorney about a past client. This review seems to be in error and meant for someone else.
