My Case Was In Good Hands

I was referred to Ruzanna Poghosyan by a family friend for my case. Before contacting Ruzanna I was very nervous about my situation. Everybody was telling me I will go to jail. I couldn’t wait until Monday, so I called her on Saturday and she gave me an appointment on the same day. She was very helpful in answering my questions. I left her office knowing my case was in good hands. I ended up not going to jail and instead getting informal probation. I would definitely recommend Ruzanna to anyone looking for a criminal defense attorney because she is very knowledgeable in her field of practice.

I Strongly Recommend Hiring Ruzanna

I had received a DUI in Van Nuys, a known difficult court that does not grant any plea bargains. However, thanks to Ruzanna and her hard working efforts she was able to reduce my DUI into a reckless driving. I strongly recommend hiring Ruzanna as she is well prepared, communicates well explaining all premises clearly and puts the client’s mind at ease. She definitely knows what she is doing and is well experienced in criminal defense!
