Aniko is a very professional, strong attorney who get's results!!!
I have hired Aniko on several different cases, starting with a very complex DUI case. She new specifically what I was willing to accept and not accept as far as a plea agreement and was very persistent with both the judge and the District Attorney to get me the deal that I was willing to accept. She showed up on time to every court date and was very knowledgeable about what the law could and could not do for me. I also hired her for a family member and I have the same feedback. Was able to get an an agreement that worked for us and handled in a professional way. I would recommend her strongly for any type of a case.

Are you in Legal "Hot Water"? There is Hope!
Ms. Rushakoff is an excellent attorney. She was very reassuring, supportive and conscientious in handling my case. I had always hoped to come across such an attorney, should I ever be in need of legal counsel. Unlike many attorneys I had spoken to and the numerous horror stories I had heard about other attornies prior to retaining Ms. Rushakoff, she was responsive, knowledgeable and trustworthy when it came to fees and expenses. Every other attorney I had spoken to made me feel like I was being "taken for a ride" because I was in trouble. I was repeatedly told how desperate and serious my situation was and that if I did not retain them and pay the astronomical fees, I would face dire consequences. Instead, Ms. Rushakoff reassured me that everything would be just fine and she was quite reasonable with her fees. I was leaving the country for a job assignment and I felt completely reassured that she would handle my case properly in my absence. I felt like she was practicing law because it was her passion and not because she was out to make a fast buck on people's misery! I recommend her wholeheartedly. She is a credit to her profession!

Best custody attorney in SoCal!
Aniko really came through for me! I highly recommend her. She really fought for me in court, and helped resolve a tough custody battle for me. I could not be happier! Not only did she come through for me, but she was also great with communicating with me throughout the whole process.

Very cordial Lawyer
She is a very very cordial and praiseworthy lawyer I have ever hired. I was in a trouble three months ago. Then I consulted with her and eventually hired her. She handled the case not as a lawyer rather as a friend of mine. I recommend her 100% if you need a cordial lawyer. She is also absolutely professional as well. Hope for the best from a real friendly lawyer and solve your problems.

Aniko kept me out of jail!
Thanks Aniko! I was worried with my 3rd DUI because I have three kids to feed and I can't afford to be in jail for one minute! I violated probation and people were telling me I was going to be in jail for awhile. I was super scared. They are very quick to respond- Richard was available 24/7 to take my calls. In the end, Aniko was able to get me just a few days of Ankle bracelet - fine whatever! I didn't have to do DUI classes again either! Thanks Aniko & Richard.

Trusted
I was charged with a DUI in New York City . It was a refusal case. The first day I met Aniko, I knew I was in good hands. she went through every minute detail about the case weighing the strengths and weaknesses and was upfront with me. Aniko was very professional and knowledgeable. I was very scared at that point because it was my first time going through this process. Also, being a professional, my career was at stake, so I wanted to make sure I went to the best. she put my fears to rest and guided me throughout the process. In particular, she was very approachable and she used to call me back right away. I honestly feel that I could not have wished anyone better than her to represent me. Since, I was innocent, I wanted to go to trial as this was my best chance of winning the case. Aniko went over the trial process with me, and guided me at every step. sHe was very effective with the jury and was able to catch their attention every time she spoke. I was acquitted of all charges after the trial. I would highly highly recommend her if you have been unfortunate like me and need representation

She helped me keep my little girl
I went through a pretty bad divorce with my wife and for reasons I'd rather not talk about openly I felt she was unfit to care for my little girl so I wanted full custody of her, make sure she was well taken care of. I went searching for lawyers that deal with this kind of thing and a friend of mine suggested I talk to Aniko so I did. I called her and she was very professional and understanding of the whole situation. She worked very hard for my case and she definitely knows the laws very well. We won the case thanks to her and I'm so happy that my baby is safe with me.

Very happy, she helped me a ton
I was pulled over on my home from a party for swirving a bit in the lane and so the cop asked me to take a field sobriety test which I failed and I was arrested for DUI. I figured I didn't have enough to cause me to be so impaired but oh well. Anyway, as soon as I could I contacted Aniko to help me out of the pickle I had gotten into and she did a fantastic job at keeping me out of big trouble. She really knows what she is doing when it comes to DUI cases and she's very dedicated. Definitely recommend going to her with your DUI troubles.

She's amazing at what she does
I got stopped at a DUI checkpoint on my way home from a friends house, and since I had a few beers they had me arrested for the DUI. After I was released I immediately went searching for a lawyer to help me out with everything, and I came across Aniko and I'm very glad I went to her, she is very knowledgeable and reassured me that everything would be fine, which it was. I had to pay a small fine but aside from that I didn't get into any major trouble thanks to her. Very grateful for her help.

Helped my daughter
My daughter is young and naive. She let someone else drive her car, and ended up with a DUI charge against her. She wasn't the one drinking, and didn't deserve the DUI. Aniko listened to our story, and was more than eager to help. She got my daughter off the charge completely. Great work, thank you.
