    Asit made my son and I feel confident and at ease from the moment we first met with him. He was very personable and genuinely cared about the outcome of my son's juvenile case. We are very happy with the outcome and are certain that his creativity and experience made a huge impact.

    We had no idea where our case was headed. We thought we had a chance to win our case but could not risk a parole violation involving an interstate parole transfer on a Public Defender who would not return any calls. Asit came highly recommended to us by another attorney who is a friend.
    Fortunately, Asit agreed to take our case on short notice. It was clear from the beginning that he had the experience, expertise, and resources to properly defend our case. He presented our case so well that the DA and PO agreed to dismiss it. It was evident that Asit had a genuine concern for us as the client. He was excellent at staying in contact as well as promptly returning phone calls and emails. Highly recommend.

  • Would not recommend

    Hired him for a restraining order case. Throughout the case, Asit was vastly underprepared and I felt like he didn't do anywhere near to justify his billings. At one point, he didn't prepare documents before our meeting so I had to help him out as if I were his paralegal! Pretty ungodly. He was also late to the courtroom on the court date. Would not recommend.

    Asit S Panwala’s response: “Han fails to mention that I recommended to him that we go to a hearing rather than accept an offer for a stay away order for one year. I prepared him and his friend well for the cross-examination and they knew exactly what the other side would ask. Although I appeared five minutes late for court, we prevailed and I obtained a three year restraining order.”
  • The best choice for a criminal defense atorney.Calm, composed and exceptionally professional.

    Dear Asit,

    Thank you. These are the two words that will immediately pop in my mind and heart, everytime for the rest of my life. You have been my relief and support through this unfortunate dark journey I had to experience.

    I feel very thankful to my stars to have met you. The decision to chose the attorney who would represent me in this case, was an experience I fail to be able to put in words. It was painstakingly crucial. But your persona, honesty and capability, helped ease the doubts and confusion.And that was only the beginning. I am grateful to you for being the my pillar of composure and strength, bound by honesty, for all the challenging situations that arose through this 5 month process.

    Thank you for the incredible work and efforts you put in to help me get justice. I hope to be a testimony to help fight off this struggle women and also men like me have to face. The fight for justice is not an easy one for any individual, but with a support system like the one I have, with you, Asit, being a big factor, I believe that it definitely is achievable.

    May God bless you. All the best for all the work that you continue to do.

    Sincerely,
    Sheetal

  • Very Knowledgeable, Responsive and helped get my charge dismissed.

    Posted by a client

    I was cited for a criminal misdemeanor offense that was punishable up to 1 year in prison in jail and hired Asit to represent me at my arraignment. Asit was very knowledgeable and took his time to explain what would likely happen in my case. Asit was very responsive with all of my questions and provided a response within an hour. I can really tell that he's dedicated to his work and genuinely cares for his clients. My pending charge put a great deal of anxiety and stress on myself, but every time I had questions or concerns, Asit would put my mind at ease and assure me that everything would turn out okay and to just focus on work and my day to day life. Asit told me there was a chance that the court would dismiss the charges prior to the arraignment and contacted the clerk. He spoke to the district attorney directly and was able to get my charge dismissed the day before my arraignment. I could not have been happier with the results. If you are thinking about hiring an attorney in the SF area, you should call Asit and have a consultation at the very least. I met with him for about 45 minutes and we discussed my case in detail. After our meeting, I knew I was making the right decision.

    Thanks Asit.

    Asit Panwala is my savior. From the beginning he and his office put me at ease and took care of me. I felt comfortable with him from the very beginning. He was open and honest with me, and gave me every scenario that could come up. He never made me false promises, and never guaranteed me anything. He did tell me his is good at what he does, and I believed every word. And you know what HE WAS RIGHT!!! He made my Domestic Violence case dismissed in first day of the court!! I'm very thankful to have Asit Panwala representing me and would DEFINITELY recommend him to anyone looking for a lawyer.

    Asit Panwala gave me wonderful consultation in regards to my nephew who has some past legal problems. He was clear. He was straightforward. He was very honest. He eased my concerns, and showed me that there's still hope for a brighter future for my nephew. I was nervous going into the consultation, but i left feeling more informed, and with a clearer mind. Thank you Mr. Panwala for clearing things up for me, and giving me a solid plan in dealing with my nephew. Much appreciated!

    Mr. Panwala is an incredibly knowledgeable attorney, unafraid to ask his clients and the police the tough questions necessary to obtain justice. Beyond Mr. Panwala's ability as an attorney, he is also a wonderful person that genuinely cares about his clients and fights tirelessly to deliver positive results. If you are ever in need of a highly qualified and highly motivated defense attorney, look no further than Mr. Panwala.
    Specifically, Mr. Panwala helped me face hostile police investigators during an interview involving a sexual assault charge. Mr. Panwala took control of the interview and made certain I presented my side of events and did not allow for any ambiguity in the facts. Despite the fact I am an attorney myself, it was invaluable to know I had Mr. Panwala's criminal law acumen with me before, during and after the police interview.

    When faced with the potential filing of criminal charges, I turned to Mr. Panwala. His past experience as an assistant district attorney led him to be able to form a great working relationship with the Detective on my case. Mr. Panwala has advocated for the returning of all of my seized property, and he has protected me from further intrusions by the police. I highly recommend Mr. Panwala for any and all criminal matters.

    I highly recommend hiring Asit as your defense lawyer. When i met Asit initially regarding my case, he was very knowledgeable, brilliant, confident and provided me with possible outcomes of the case. I was so stressed that the arrest would effect my immigration status. I felt so comfortable after consulting him during that stressful time. He also worked with my immigration lawyer and resolved the case in such a way that it doesn't have any potential immigration consequences. He also obtained an expungement for me in less than a year.

    I was very impressed by his promptness, attention to the detail. Above all, he responded to me on weekends, weekdays, late hours during that stressful period and gave me confidence, support when resolving the case!!

    It was really amazing working with him. I felt that i was talking to a close friend when having conversation with him. I am very thankful to Asit from the bottom of my heart for taking up my case!!
