You're involved in one of the most high-stress situations you've ever encountered, you're frazzled, feeling powerless and you need someone who knows their stuff to back you up. That's Asit. He'll understand your mind set, reassure you with solid legal counsel and best of all, he knows your adversary better than anyone else in the game. And it is a game to some degree. Asit's time as a prosecutor is INVALUABLE in winning a best possible outcome. Asit made himself available for all my questions, emails and phone calls, even outside of office time. I honestly don't know how aggressive he can get, my case didn't demand it, but when everyone in the court knows him on a first name basis, that kind of thing seems unimportant relative to the personal connections he has. I cannot recommend Asit enough.

Don't waste anymore time looking for another attorney. You will not find a better attorney than Asit Panwala. Not only is he brillant, resoucesful, and well-connected, but he also has a deep knowledge of the laws and legal systems. His experience as a prosecutor gives him insight most criminal defense attorneys do not have.
On top of these attributes, he is extremely attentive, and professional thoroughout my case. He responded to me on weekends and night, always within 24 hours. Not a second went by during my process where I didn't feel like I was not his top priority.
What impressed me the most and set Asit apart from everyone else is his deep compassion and care for his clients. He goes beyond his means to help. Simply put Asit is by far the BEST. Anyone who needs compassionate, and super brilliant attorney should call Asit Panwala.
Asit, I am eternally grateful from the bottom of my heart. Thank you.

Asit is superstar. He knows the intricacies of immigration law and his experience as a former Prosecutor is priceless. His immigrant background allows him to understand and empathize with the plight of the immigration process. He continues to educated himself with new case law, and should be considered an expert. His tact is unmatched and he will only stop at the last mile for his Clients. Much more joy and happiness to his already deeply successful law practice.

I strongly endorse Asit. He is a criminal defense attorney of extensive experience and true expertise, including 25 jury trials with exceptional results. His experience as a prosecutor now combines with his experience as a private defense attorney to provide you with the best possible defense representation. As a former prosecutor, he has "behind-the-scenes" knowledge, training, and experience which he can now put to the best use - defending you in your case. Beyond who he is as an attorney, Asit is a good person, a person of integrity, who will stand by you and fight for you in your case. Asit combines compassion for his clients with dedication to their cases and obtaining the best results. I am a fellow criminal defense attorney in private practice. As such, I can tell you that Asit is my "go to" referral for clients or friends seeking the best possible criminal defense and DUI defense attorney in the San Francisco area. You can count on him.
