Client Reviews


Chudnovsky Law helped me with a DUI H1B visa matter.
I was alarmed to receive a notice that my H-1B visa was revoked when I got charged with a DUI after a party. It happened so fast and USCIS did not even give me a chance to defend myself before revoking it. I had to search a lot to find a law firm that has DUI and immigration lawyers in the same firm to properly take care of this.

Once I spoke with Tsion Chudnovsky I knew I found the right place. She explained everything we needed to she would fight the DUI charge and get my visa reissued. Their former DMV officer did my DMV hearing and made sure I kept my license and got some good information that was important for my defense.

Tsion's team is very connected in the DA's office and knows how to get things done. The bottom line is they took care of me and got my H1B visa reissued no problem. If you are here on a visa and need legal help, this is the right law firm.

I Got Charged With A Felony and was very worried about my visa and my job. The arrest caused my visa to be terminated.

My prior immigration attorney recommended Chudnovsky Law to me. Tsion and her team reviewed the case and all the evidence for issues. She worked with her connections in the DA office to get the charges dismissed. She also got my visa reissued. Her fixed fee wasn't the lowest, but she got me my life back. I can recommend without reservation!

Excellent DUI Attorneys!
They saved my license and got my DUI dismissed due to a police mistake! They saved me a lot of fines and my visa. Fair price and they were very professional and great to work with. No drama just results and they explained everything to me really good.

Very smart lawyers and very good service. I needed a Spanish speaking DUI lawyer and immigration lawyer to help me with my DUI.

Ms Tsion Chudnovsky explained DUI en Español including the DUI immigration problems and how they fight the charges. They did all the court appearances for me and made sure I did not have to spend any time in jail. It was not cheap but they saved my license and saved me a lot of money in fines. They also made sure there were no immigration problem. Tsion Chudnovsky es el mejor abogado DUI. Muchas gracias.
