Rabin Nabizadeh

About me

I am a true believer and knew since I was fourteen years old that I wanted to be a criminal defense attorney.  I believe that the American Justice system is the best in the world - mainly because it allows defense attorneys such lattitude to establish reasonable doubt.  I have handled thousands of criminal cases over the past 10 years and have conducted hundreds of preliminary hearings as well as countless motions and other sorts of litigation.  I belive that the only way to practice criminal defense is to be "in the trenches" with my client.

    Mr. Nabizadeh realizes that most criminal cases turn, and are decided upon, a few key issues. More importantly, he is able to determine what the issues are at an early stage. Whereas many lawyers undercharge and immediately plead clients or overcharge and 'provide' unnecessary services, Mr. Nabizadeh focuses his acute legal mind to the issues that matter. Don't waste your time or your money on other lawyers. Mr. Nabizadeh has your answer. Mr. Nabizadeh's phone number is listed in the favorite's section of my cell phone for that very reason.
