Rabin is an excellent attorney who was able to get my case dropped completely! He was always there to answer any questions I had, even though I'm pretty sure I asked the same questions a few times. If I know anyone who is arrested and charged with a crime, I will immediately refer them to Summit Defense. Thank you again to Rabin, Robert, and the entire Summit Defense team!
