Very professional, the best and kind
Atty dimitri helped me and solved my problem. I thought i was gonna lose hope but when I met him he encouraged me not to lose hope do what u gonna do its not end of the world. Back in 2019 i was accused of pornography that i only forwarded a video to my one of my friends thru fb messenger. So after four months the case was filed that they thought i was doing pornography but in my life never did. That video was forwarded to me to my phone from my childhood friend that he got it from fb messenger group chat. At that time i have nothing less savings not enough to pay attorneys fee had to sold my old car for less and borrow some money so i can fight my right that im innocent. This month of the year finally atty dimitry did the right moved he explained the best choice for me and i agreed. Always pray to god and never lose hope be kind and be honest. I highly recommend attorney Dmitry stadlin 5 ⭐️

My testosterone injecting, body building son beat me for no reason that I can discern, and when my philandering wife kicked me twice while I lay in a pool of blood. These people, whom I've given so much of my life to, found it fun to take my blood and feed it to my dogs. In two words, "The BEST." People perjure themselves. And in some cases, they suborn perjury. I had two broken separated ribs that will never heal, a hematoma under my rib cage next to my lungs, a severe concusion from six blows to the head, 3 on one side, and for good measure, 3 on the other side, as my disgusting son wound up with all my power as he pinnned me to the ground and choked me with a half nelson. His actions have left me with brain damage to this day (for the first 3 months, I would fall over 2 - 3 times a week). These people left, as I aimlessly wandered around the road inensate for 25 minutes. I have no memories from perhaps 45 seconds after this brutality until two and a half hours later in a reconstructed timeline. I was in court when I learned for the first time my state after the beating. The DA would not prosecute. And he was right to not prosecute. My son lied to the court. I saw him the next day and he told me that my wife, and his girlfriend, all present, would tell the court what he wanted them to, and so they did. Fortunately, he overestimated his ability to reconstruct events in a plausible story given the forensic evidence, and Dmitry destroyed his testimony. The judge returned, and Dmitry prevailed. Dmitry knows his stuff. He's a compassionate and patient man. He understands. He is just going to get better and better, having already achieved the ability to manage the strange court system that has become our justice system. Dmitry knows his stuff, and he interacts with the court in a fine way. He knows how to coach you for testimony, so you feel comfortable. Watching opposing counsel, and my son's disgusting efforts to be "reasonable," as he lied., was disgusting to me. Always, Dmitry kept the discourse one level above, as even opposing counsel used deceptive tricks in an attempt to have me affirm statements I never made. Dmitry did not have to do that, and I don't think it was lost on the judge.

Outstanding, Reliable, Professional
When I first got a inkling that there is a ongoing investigation for insurance fraud, I panicked and was looking for lawyers on yelp. Having never been in need for a lawyer ever in my life before I had no clue how or what to do. I contacted few of them through yelp but Dmitry was the first one to answer the phone and immediately gave me sound advice and also met with me the very next day even though it was a Saturday. He explained the entire process to me very well and the possible outcomes. I decided to go with him, and he followed through regularly with me and took care of everything once I submitted whatever related documents. He got the best possible outcome for me where the case was altogether dismissed. He is calm and doesn’t overcommit but you get confidence that he will fight for you in the background and get you the best result. I am super glad I went with Dmitry.

The best
Dmitry is as good as it gets. He follows through on all aspects of your case. He is very fast at responding and keeping you in the loop. He got my husband case dismissed because of a lot of untruth from the other party involved. Kudos to Dmitry. I will refer and use his services again and again. Thank You for everything. CM

Great attorney with sharp mind and ability to get things done with your interest in mind
I was uncertain regarding the direction of my DV case with my current lawyer. I received the referral from another attorney and came for a consultation with Mr. Stadlin. Afterward, I decided to hire Dmitry to represent me since I felt he was asking the right questions and giving good assessments with the information that I provided. I am happy to have made that decision since Dmitry provided the result that I wanted from the beginning: My case was dismissed. From the time when I switched over from my previous attorney during the pretrial to the trial day, Dmitry did not waste time but rather used time effectively to comb over things and deal with DA office. I am impressed with Dmitry's investigative skills and his technological understanding of high tech related evidence as well as his attention to details. Dmitry also demonstrated the knowledge of how the system works and more importantly, able to explain to me all the little processes that could help me with my case. His explanations and suggestions were straight forward and logical which helped me quickly understand and agree to the decisions and the directions that he presented to me. When Dmitry saw the opportunity, he jumped on and worked effectively and very quickly to reach the solution that led to the dismissal; and yes, he did save me a lot of money that I would have spent. If you're looking for an effective and sharp attorney with good understanding of the system, technologies, and focusing on getting the best solution for you rather than ripping you off, I would recommend using Dmitry as your legal representation. I really appreciate your help Mr. Stadlin!

Great help and guidance!
Dmitry was great during my case. He was recommended by another attorney and I am so happy he worked with us He answered every question I had and made sure I understood the process! He really broke everything down and made it easier to understand which I really appreciated. He was super patient and understanding through out the while time! He made my partner and I feel safe and hopeful. Everything turned out great in the end. I will definitely refer friends/family if they ever need help and guidance. I 100% trust Dmitry. We appreciate you and your team for all your help and kindness.

Free Consultation
I had a great experience and learned a great deal of my legal right during my free consultation with Dmitry. I was searching around for the right lawyer to represent my cases. Many lawyers I met just wanted to have me pay beforehand. As for Dmitry, I talked to him over the phone. He suggested for me to come to his office and discuss my cases in person with him and the consultation was absolutely free. I was very skeptical at first but I decided it’s best to meet him in person. It was the best decision. When I come in to talk with Dmitry. First, he walks me through my legal right and how the court system works. It was a hour long consultation. Not once he mentions anything with the cost of retaining him. At the end our the consultation. I want him to represent me regardless of the cost because he really shows that he care for my cases. It is not about the money. This days lawyer like Dmitry are not too many around. I highly recommend if you want a lawyer who cares for your case and the outcome of your life. Do come and meet up with Dmitry at his office. I guarantee you will never be happier. If financial is holding you back of getting a great lawyer to represent you. Come to see Dmitry. His office will work with you to get you with the right payment put in place. Great lawyer. Thank you so much Dmitry...

Delivered well over expectations
Dmitry Stadlin provided excellent legal advise and representation in court. I was not in the U.S. and Dmitry was able to handle all communications online via email after an initial phone conversation. Communication was clear and easy to understand for a layman, and responses to email questions were always prompt. He delivered well over expectations and helped get my criminal record for a DUI expunged, for a case with several special circumstances. I highly recommend Dmitry.

Dmiitry was a God-send
Dmitry was an absolute God-send. He noticed me having a difficult time navigating the biased and unforgiving process of the court and stepped in. To me, my case was very simple: I was accused of not having a license when I actually did. Never received anything in the mail to appear in court and showed up on the date on the ticket and was told it hadn't been filed. Ticket was stamped and I was sent on my way being told that IF it was ever filed, I would receive a notice to appear. Flash forward over a year later and on a background check for a high paying job it was discovered a warrant was issued almost a year previous for failure to appear. I immediately got another court date and showed up with license and proof that I showed to court over a year ago. The Court was so obtuse! Refused to accept my license and stamped ticket from the Court, and they could not provide a proof of mailing. When the judge told them she could call a recess to look up the info to show I had a license on the day in question, the DA said she was too busy and I would need to come back in a few weeks. I instructed the Court I had just started this new job and couldn't risk missing more time. The judge said I could plead guilty instead and not have to come back. I refused to do this as I am innocent and worked very hard to keep a clean record. This is where Dmitry stepped in! He pulled me outside briefly and said he recognized what was going on and had compassion for me. He said he was willing to represent me at what should be one more court appearance FOR FREE! A few weeks later he mailed a copy of the minute order that the case was DISMISSED. This guy is truly one of God's appointed people. Thank you and God Bless you.

Honest, Responsive, Helpful
I desperately needed an attorney to guide me through some past charges from my youth that had supposedly been expunged. I tried hard to figure it out on my own, but realized it was just too complicated. I went thru several other sources to find an attorney, but they were either too busy to help me, or required a ton of information and cost before providing me any guidance. I found Dmitry on yelp, and was honestly extremely leery of finding an attorney online (my standard thoughts of attorneys are sleazy lawyer, and who finds a good attorney on yelp). We emailed and talked on the phone a bit (he was willing to provide some insight right away) and I decided I was out of options, so why not go for it and just be ready to be completely ripped off. I was amazed at how helpful he was and is still (it's been almost a year, and he's still responding to my questions even though he has completed what I needed). My situation turned out to be more complicated than I thought it would be, and he took care of it, without asking for additional compensation. He was very honest, straightforward, responsive and willing to do research and figure it out. He even assisted me further when I needed additional assistance. Dmitry was excellent and restored my faith in attorneys, in general, and finding a professional online! I often have high expectations for professionals, but Dmitry took the time to explain everything to me, prepared me for potential outcomes and was very organized - I was really impressed. Thanks so much!!!

Outstanding legal services
I highly recommend Dmitry Stadlin based on the excellent legal services he provided in several court hearings for a civil harassment case. Though he took over the case from another attorney with little notice, he was thoroughly prepared with an even better knowledge and understanding of the issues and evidence. In court, he was extremely professional and, more importantly, extremely effective. He correctly assessed the opposition’s strategy and tactics. His questioning and cross examinations were to the point; his objections, well founded and mostly upheld. His summary highlighted all the key points of the case and effectively countered those of the opposing counsel. Thanks to Dmitry, we won!

Very professional Attorney
Dmitry Stadlin is a very respectful, knowledgeable, honest attorney. He handled our case very professionally and in my opinion went above and beyond for our case. Our case was complicated as most are but it led to having hearings in two different counties and Dmitry showed up for both. I would definitely use his services again In the future if needed and I would definitely recommend his services to anyone looking for an attorney who will be thorough and follow through until the very end.
