Knowledgeable medical license defense
I was very fortunate to have Tsion Chudnovsky and Robert Weinberg represent me for an accusation filed by the Medical Board. They was able to negotiate a settlement that resolved the unfortunate matter with no action taken against me by the board. A serious potential disaster was averted. I recommend this firm without reservation.

Capable, reliable professional license lawyers
Ms. Chudnovsky assigned Suzanne Crouts to handle my BRN accusation case. Suzanne is a wonderful nurse defense lawyer that did a very competent job preparing me and conducting the nursing board hearing. She listened to my concerns and was very prepared. She presented a very persuasive case to the judge and the outcome was ultimately favorable. I highly recommend Chudnovsky Law and Suzanne for anyone needing representation with their licensing board.

Top-tier law firm
I have been referring clients to Tsion Chudnovsky and her top tier law firm for years. She always provides excellent representation. Chudnovsky Law has some of the best criminal defense lawyers in LA County. I've found her team of attorneys to be responsive, highly capable, and fair with their rates. They also provide excellent professional license defense for nursing, medical, and other healthcare workers. I will continue to recommend Tsion and Chudnovsky Law to anyone that asks. Thanks for doing such a great job for your clients!

Great lawyer for nurses!
Tsion and Robert have successfully represented me with the Board of Nursing on two separate occasions. They really understood what my license means to me and my family and were very smart in how they resolved my issues. This firm is a godsend for nurses and doctors. I recommend them to anyone.

I Was Accused of a Serious Felony
I was very worried that my professional license and immigration visa could be in jeopardy. A good friend recommended Chudnovsky Law to me. Tsion and her team really came through for me. They acted quickly to develop a defense strategy and executed it. Her firm is very connected with the DAs and court systems and worked their network to resolve my case. She got the charges dismissed and gave me my life back! Her fixed fee wasn't the lowest I found, but worth every penny. Highly recommended!

Excellent nurse license defense attorneys
Unfortunately I got caught up in an investigation of opioid prescribing practices at a clinic I worked for. Tsion and Robert Weinberg did a great job defending me. After a months long investigation, they were able to get the matter totally closed with no action against my license. I give them the highest recommendation!

Awesome attorney!!
In my experience, Tsion Chudnovsky is an amazing attorney. She worked hard on my case and was able to get the two felony charges dismissed. Now I am free with no probation and no criminal record.

Got the charges dropped!
Ms Chudnovsky is an expert in courtroom defense. She was efficient at getting the district attorney to drop both charges. I liked how Tsion was always quick to answer questions. And I'm relieved for the resolution she got with no collateral damage. She also filed to seal the arrest record so I have a perfectly clean record.

Caring, compassionate attorney
Tsion is a very good listener. She really understood what I was going through and knew what to do every step of the way. No matter what came up in my felony criminal case, she had a response. Nothing fazed her. She was great at getting me to relax and also convincing the DA to do what she wanted. I can highly recommend Tsion and her very professional team!

Excellent professional license defense attorney
I was involved in a very unfortunate incident that put my nursing license at risk. I was referred to Chudnovsky Law by a physician colleague. All I can say is that Robert Weinberg and Tsion Chudnovsky are experts in handling licensing boards and Los Angeles criminal defense matters. I recommend them for any nurse or medical license related matter. They are true professionals that know exactly how to navigate the system and protect you.

Kept me out of court during Covid
Tsion really impressed me during my initial consultation. She resolved a difficult case in Westminster court in my favor. And she made sure I didn't have to go to court at all during covid. Thank you Tsion!!

Tsion and her staff were better than I anticipated from a criminal defense law firm. I needed representation on a holiday weekend and they immediately jumped in and helped me. They dealt with the issue promptly and professionally.

Won my restraining order case
Tsion, I would like to thank you, Mr Stein and your staff for all your support and for winning my restraining order case. I could not have asked for a better team to represent me during this ordeal. You were always professional and knew how to deal with the false allegations I was dealing with. The difference between my counsel and the other side was night and day. I don't think they were prepared for the diligence and research you put into refuting every bit of misinformation they were peddling. Thank you for getting me through this.

Got my domestic violence case dismissed
I was wrongfully and illegally arrested by Irvine police department. I called the police due to a domestic argument that got out of hand. When police arrived my girlfriend lied, then they arrest and charged me with a felony 273.5 domestic violence charge. Had a different attorney worked on my case, I'm convinced I would have been convicted. Attorney Tsion Chudnovsky advocated hard for my innocence and presented evidence supporting my case. The DA finally agreed to not even file the charges, thank god! Tsion's effort in fighting for dismissal were unparalleled. I could not be more pleased with the outcome. Thank you Tsion and Chudnovsky Law!

We lost our daughter in an auto accident
Another party ran a red light late at night and caused a fatal car accident with our daughter in Orange County. The incident was devastating. A lawyer friend recommended Tsion Chudnovsky to me and she was a godsend. Tsion and her professional team always clearly answered our questions, anticipated our needs and outlined a sophisticated strategy to obtain a fair outcome from multiple parties. While nothing can bring our daughter back, she obtained a 7 figure settlement for our family and helped us heal as best as possible. We highly recommend Chudnovsky Law for anyone needing a personal injury attorney.

Excellent criminal & immigration attorneys
I was arrested for a stupid crime and was very worried it would screw up the visa I am here on. A friend used Chudnovsky Law before and recommended I call them. Tsion helped me understand everything and really calmed me down. She explained all the immigration issues and totally picked apart the case. And after working on it they got my case dismissed! They really know what they are doing and are very nice to work with.

I have known her professionally for almost two decades. She always places others ahead of her and is incredibly committed to achieving the best possible outcome for her clients. I recommend her without reservation and feel privileged to know her.
