Orange County Client Reviews


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!

Felony DUI Was Reduced To Dry Reckless. I got in an accident and was arrested for a DUI. Unfortunately there was substantial injury involved and I got charged with Felony DUI. I was really freaked out by the whole thing and what the consequences could be.

Tsion and her team really went above and beyond to calm me down and educate me on my options and how they would attack the charges. After some careful research, they identified some issues with the evidence and were able to able reduce the charge to a dry reckless and I kept my license. I can wholeheartedly recommend Chudnovsky Law. They are top notch.

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.

Bail & Release Help at OC Jails

Is your loved one incarcerated at an OC jail? Our lawyers can help get them released quickly. Usually you can post bail immediately after the inmate is booked. Or you can wait for the first court appearance, which usually occurs within 2 court days after the arrest.

If the inmate is still in custody until the initial court date, your attorney can request for a lower bail or for the judge to grant an "own recognizance" release. Judge's will review whether the inmate is a flight risk and whether they are a danger to the public. Our attorneys can present evidence and argue that the inmate should be eligible for a low bail or release on their own recognizance.
