  • Valerie - I can't say enough good things about Dmitry Gorin and his law firm. From Noreen, the office manager, To Meryl Chambers, and associate attorney. I was treated with the utmost respect and the issues of my son's arrest were addressed as if I were their only client. I received their undivided attention during my free consultation which took some considerable time. I felt so confident with Dmitry and his team I hired them that day. They were always available to answer my questions and concerns and was on top of my sons case as if it was there most important client. I never felt uninformed or unimportant through the entire process. My son was very fortunate that his case did not go beyond arraignment, but if he had gone to trial I'm confident that Dmitry and his team would have gotten him the best possible results. It's very scary having a loved one charged with a felony, but if you should find yourself needing a criminal attorney you cannot find better representation than Eisner and Gorin.

I hired attorney Dmitry Gorin and his legal team on recommendation of another attorney. We spent over a year on my case including three visits to federal court. I thought I was going to prison. Dmitry amazingly got me only 12 months of home confinement. He wrote a great report to the court asking for this sentence rather than many years in prison. I also liked how they kept me updated on case status.

This was the first time I needed a lawyer and I didn?t know what to do. I looked online and found this law firm. Dmitry Gorin worked on my case before the arraignment date. He worked with the police and the DA to show them I was not guilty. When the court date came, the office called and said I didn?t need to come to court because my case was dropped! Dmitry has great communication skills and i liked his aggressive style. I appreciate everything he did for me.

I live out of state and needed a lawyer to resolve a legal problem dating back several years. Due to my previous attorneys incompetence, I had a bench warrant and was facing redoing hundreds of hours of community service and possibly some jail time. With a quick call, Dmitry Gorin looked at my case and identified the main issue and suggested a plan. I liked how he was very professional and knew his field of business, so I hired him. Within two weeks, they appeared in court and fixed everything which was literally the best possible result. Years of aggravation was suddenly lifted. He did his job very well. Thank you Dmitry.

I was charged with a serious felony DUI causing great bodily injury and looking at time in state prison. This was a very stressful situation for my entire family. I was unsettled by the whole process. Dmitry Gorin was referred to me by another attorney. From my first meeting, it became clear he knew his way around the court system. I liked how he was compassionate and took an interest in the outcome of my case. He assured me he would work aggressively, and he didn?t disappoint. In the end, I only did a few days in jail, community service, and some time wearing a SCRAM ankle bracelet. I would highly recommend Eisner Gorin to anyone needed effective criminal lawyers for serious charges.

It was the best decision I have ever made. Dmitry Gorin was so professional, friendly, and for the first time I felt someone was looking out for me. I liked how he updated me by email or phone and explained the process. He advise me on the best course of action and fought hard for me.

I was in a very tough situation and really had no clue what to do or where to turn. The legal system can seem so massive and cold. I was overwhelmed and having a hard time figuring out what the best path forward was. I had met with many different attorneys before finally having the luck to come across Mr. Gorin and his team. I remember the first time meeting him I finally had a good feeling that I didn't get with the other attorneys I met. He is extremely knowledgeable of the legal system and his experience working in the DA's office gives him an invaluable advantage. Needless to say, I'm writing this review because he turned a situation I thought may have altered the course of my life into a learning experience. I was facing jail time and a felony sentence. By the time it was resolved it was brought down to community service and a misdemeanor. I would highly recommend him to anyone I know facing a difficult legal situation. The experience he has combined with his great team is invaluable. If you are stuck in a similar situation I definitely suggest meeting with him to see if he can offer you the same support he did for me. I cannot thank him enough for helping me out during such a hard period of my life.

I had a situation develop with an unstable and seemingly vindictive individual who falsely accused me of a crime. I contacted a few attorneys before coming across Dmitry and his team. You will discover quickly that in our criminal justice system, not much evidence as needed for someone to file a complaint against you. Many criminal attorneys will make a large cash grab before they will help you. They overpromise and under deliver. Dmitry did not go that route. He was polite, engaging, calming and realistic. His price was fair and he moved very fast on my case. He was successful in my case with an intervention before any criminal charges were filed. The prosecutor never even heard my name. I'm still freaked out by the experience and can sympathize with all those put in jail under false pretenses. Thank God for Dmitry. I'm very happy with the results of my case and would highly recommend Dmitry and his legal team.

Eisner and Gorin helped me put my life back on track. I was looking at a felony charge and jail time, which on my first arraignment he had reduced to a misdemeanor. I never saw the inside of a jail cell. He got me into a DEJ program that once complete, the entire case was dismissed. I could not have asked for a better result for a mistake I wish never happened. I highly recommend this law firm to anyone facing criminal charges. Dmitry was caring and approachable from the first consultation and always willing to talk to me throughout the entire legal process. If you are ever in trouble, Dmitry is the guy you want on speed dial. Thanks again Dmitry.

They truly are the best defense lawyers you can have. I thought I was going to have my life ruined, unjustly, because of someone else's wrong doing. Dmitry, Alan and Meryl all fought for me and got my charges reduced to the bare minimum. I'm so very thankful to still have my freedom and it's all because of the great people at Eisner & Gorin.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
