Client Reviews


I spoke to several attorneys when my daughter was arrested and charged with a felony for trying to buy a controlled substance. After talking to Tsion Chudnovsky, we hired her right away. Tsion exudes compassion and puts you at ease. She was great at relating to both my daughter and I during this stressful situation and explaining how the system works and how things would play out. She is also very knowledgeable and well connected in the OC court system. 

Three weeks later we got a call to say she was able to get the case rejected by the DA! What a load off our shoulders as I REALLY didn't want my daughter having a criminal record hanging over her head...Bottom line is I totally recommend Tsion and her team to anyone needing a top notch criminal defense attorney with a heart.

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 I was alarmed to receive a notice that my H-1B visa was revoked when I got charged with a DUI after a party.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.

My brother was charged with a DUI and we needed a Spanish speaking DUI lawyer that also really knows immigration law. My friend recommended I call Chudnovsky Law and he was so right. Ms Tsion Chudnovsky is an exceptional attorney that explained everything in Espanol to my brother and she helped him with the DUI immigration consequences. 

Ms. Chudnovsky has a big heart and really knows both DUI and immigration law issues better than anybody. She saved my brother's license and lots of fines. She also helped us prevent so much immigration headaches and made sure he didn't have to serve any jail time. Our whole family is grateful!
