Perfection!

First of all thank you. Secondly she is a woman who knows what she is doing. Thirdly it’s your loss because she will get it done! She gives the best specific advice on what will happen, what can happen, what we can do to get it done!
She helped me feel calm and relaxed! Even when people would tell me something that bothered me! I would give her a call and she would reassure me everything will be ok and she was correct every time!
She is to be trusted! Anyone who knows, knows there are a ton of lawyers! But not alot who do there job like they care about you and will genuinely help you through out the entire process and then some!
She’s worth it and happy she happened to be my person!
Thank you again Laina. Means a lot everything you helped with.

Felony at 50

50 year old female and never been in trouble with the law and now I’m facing a felony. Didn’t know where to turn. My husband suggested Yelp. I was searching through all the reviews and one name kept coming up, so I read all the reviews. I e-mailed Laina and she got back to me within 10 minutes. I walked her through what happened and she explained what could happen. I made an apt. to see her within a few days and she explained everything in detail to me. She was very knowledgeable and very sincere on helping me. She didn’t ask for any money up front because she was confident she could get the charges dropped. She kept me well informed and at ease the entire time. 2 weeks later and 1 week before my court hearing, she called to tell me everything got dropped. She was amazing and a sweet and kind person. She didn’t take advantage and kept her word. She is an amazing attorney and I would highly recommend her to anyone. Thank you Laina!!

By far the best defense attorney in Solano county

Laina Chikhani is by far the best defense attorney in Solano county. We left her a message at 1130pm and had a response for consultation the next morning. Laina took the initiative and made me feel like I had a fighting chance. She was so confident in my case that I knew things would be okay. With her advice and some leg work, we were able to get the charges dropped before my court date even came up. Laina is amazing!

She is the perfect example of an attorney!

If you are in need of a criminal lawyer in Solano county I recommend her to anyone!!!! I do believe she also represents Napa. Before finding her, I talked to many lawyers yet most seemed just interested in the money as opposed to my situation. She has been the greatest help and I cannot thank her enough for all that she has done. She is extremely personable and she genuinely cares. She makes you feel like a friend and does everything in her power to ensure a positive outcome. She knows what she is doing and is clearly passionate about what she does.
I was in a really unfortunate situation that escalated much more than it should have. The police harassed me during my graveyard shift while at work, and concluded I violated my probation and eventually tried to make it a much bigger deal by charging me with a misdemeanor and even a felony- when I was just at work doing my job! I cannot explain the level of anxiety I have been feeling from that incident, I honestly felt violated by the police, but Laina has been comforting and the best lawyer I have personally ever met.
I am hoping all goes well with my probation, etc. But I do have to say I wish I can always have her as my lawyer because it is rare to find a lawyer that fully cares, completely attentive, and knows what they are saying. I love her enthusiasm and unlike many lawyers I have met prior, she does not treat you like another client that just wants you to pay immediately, she actually gives concise advice. I am so grateful for finding her because my case could have escalated into something worse that could have potentially ruined my life.
So I cannot thank Laina enough and I cannot wait until this entire unnecessary legal issue gets fully resolved. Laina is outstanding and an expert to say the least; if I could give her more than five stars, I would! My girlfriend who’s also been deeply stressed equally loved her work ethic and her undeniable passion for what she does.
She’s really easy to get ahold of which is a major plus. If you need a reliable attorney that you can trust, do not even think twice about having Laina represent you. Undoubtedly, she is the perfect example of an attorney!

Laina Chikhani was extremely helpful to me in resolving a legal matter that was very distressing. She responded to my calls right away, was informative and alleviated my fears. My issue was resolved quickly and I was able to sleep without worry. If I am ever in need of legal help in the future she will be the attorney that I call. I recommend her with out reservation!

A Godsend

My husband’s final court date was only one month away and we were desperate. His case was simple so we didn’t bother hiring a private attorney but the public defender was useless and the case dragged on for more than a year and the outcome didn’t look good. I found Laina through a website search and although I spoke with several attorneys, she was the one who offered hope and rearranged her schedule to meet with us. She was straightforward and gave us best case and worst case. She did exactly as she promised and within one month his case was dismissed. He didn’t even have to appear in court. One attorney we consulted early on quoted us a fee that was multiples of what Laina charged. Worth every penny. Imagine the stress we would have avoided had we consulted her first!

Laina T. Chikhani is a brilliant attorney.

If you are searching for an honest, knowledgable, and respected criminal defense attorney to represent you or a loved one in a criminal case, then you have come to the right place. Ms Chikhani provided me with detailed information about the pending charges in a clear and direct manner and she explained the potential outcomes. She made me feel like my case was a priority and began working with me immediately. Due to her established relationship with the District Attorney’s office, she was able to quickly communicate with the DA’s office and inquire about the status of my pending case. Through her efforts all of the pending criminal charges were dropped. I will be forever grateful for her assistance in getting this matter resolved.

Criminal Case

I was recommend to Laina and was not disappointed! Out of all the other consultations I had she was the one that said to bring in all the legal documents I had regarding my case, she was interested in helping me right away! Although I worked with her for a total of a week, Laina was very consistent with contacting me even if it was just through text. She knew very well what she was doing.

Laina is very knowledgeable, energetic, and passionate about what she does. I highly recommend her.

Expert litigator

Ma. Chikhani is an expert litigator. I met Ms. Chikhani in law school and have been referring clients to her ever since. She is highly organized and unfailing professional. She has a good reputation with both judges and defendants. She is tireless in her efforts for her clients and I have rarely seen a lawyer so dedicated to constant improvement. I worked as a criminal defense investigator for 10 years and I would trust Ms. Chikhani with my own case.

Laina

I hired Laina to help me with my DUI case back in 2016 going into 2017. She was such an incredible help during the whole process. Explaining every confusing detail until I understood completely, went over anything I was unsure of, and helped me make the best decisions. She’s got incredible talent & I would definitely hire her again!

Professional, honest, and confident

Ms. Chikhani is professional, honest, and confident. I first met her several months before i actually hired her. Despite a growing case load and only having a few weeks to prepare for the potential of going to trial she took me on as a client. Never once did she mince words. She was always totally honest with me good or bad, and encouraged me to ask questions at any time; her replies were prompt and easy to understand. In fact all of her explanation was very step by step and simply worded, she made every effort to make sure I was as informed as i possibly could be. Finally, her confidence. I did not realize how much of a benefit this was until after everything had been settled. Every single day i was stressed out and scared out of my mind, the situation almost didn’t seem real. Trust me when I saw though, your attorney’s confidence, rapport, and willingness to fight for you in spite of those things is the most comforting thing there is in that court room. If ever a friend or myself are in trouble again Ms. Chikhani would be the first person I call.

She is the definition of an amazing lawyer

Laina is extremely trustworthy, understanding, encouraging, and confident! I have never had any criminal history so my current situation is very important to me and I have been nonstop worrying. I was working with a lawyer before Laina who was making me question their interest in my case and I had a very unsteady feeling that I couldn’t really explain. When I spoke with Laina, she was exploding with encouragement and understanding. She made me feel better than I had felt in months! Laina took my worries away from me and ensured that she would do everything in her power to protect me and give my case all that we’ve got! Her confidence and understanding has given me a level of faith that I have been looking for to take on my case. She is the definition of an amazing lawyer and an amazing woman! I have pure faith and confidence in her ability as a lawyer! Thank you Laina!

Laina had ALL charges DISMISSED

There is an angel here on earth that goes by the name of Laina Chikhani, after my free initial consultation I knew she was qualified to represent me and bring to surface ALL of the false allegations and preposterous lies that ultimately placed me before a superior court judge fighting for my life, liberties and character. She attacked each and every accusation brought against me in the most professionally qualified manner anyone could expect, she kept me abreast of each calculated step along the way and ultimately had ALL charges DISMISSED in its entirety with the same gorgeous smile that she greeted me with on day one in her office, im now positive about what class, style and finesse looks like because ive met Laina, I encourage anyone with a legal issue to contact her without hesitation, THANK YOU SO MUCH LAINA!!!

FOUGHT HARD FOR ME

When I first met with Ms. Chikhani, I was facing something that I never thought would happen to me. She treated me with respect and took the time to explain every step. Ms. Chikhani fought hard to get me the best result possible.

Simply the best!

I hired Laina for a dui and am so thankful I did! She was able to attend all my court dates for me which allowed me to continue working. I was always able to reach her by phone, and I mean her, not a secretary. Hands down the best lawyer I could have asked for! I highly recommend Laina!

An amazing lawyer!

Laina is diligent and knows the law in and out! I truly appreciate all the extra effort she put in to fighting my case for me. She not only handled my court in the superior court but also my DMV hearing. Which took a lot of stress off me! She kept me up to date and made sure I fully understood what was going on. She took extra time to meet with me in person and also was flexible about meeting times. Her office is in a great location just blocks from the court house which was an extra bonus! I highly recommend Laina!

I highly recommend Laina!

Laina is amazing! I wanted to get my record expunged for employment reasons. She suggested we get my felony reduced to a misdemeanor then have my record expunged so I would get my rights back. I didn’t even know that was possible. She asked me to get some letters of character and all my paperwork saying I had completed everything the court required as part of my original sentence. Once I got everything to her I was on the calendar within a few days. We went to court on November 19th and got everything taken care of. My record had been holding me back for years. I highly recommend Laina she is truly a great person and lawyer.

Laina represented me

Laina represented me in a case that put both my livelihood (I hold a professional license)  and freedom at stake. She fought for me for over two years, and eventually left the DA no other choice than to drop the charges. During the process, she kept me informed every step of the way. I recommend her without hesitation.

As my first time…

As my first time being a defendant of a criminal case Laina helped me sooo much! I had no idea how to choose the right attorney but as soon as I was directed to Laina I wasn’t disappointed. Laina was interested in helping me because during the consultation she asked me to bring in all legal documents which other attorneys didn’t ask for. Laina was consistent and was able to find out before my court hearing that my charges were dropped. She was very helpful & answered all my questions! I would recommend her to anyone dealing with their first criminal case!

An Update: I am back at work as an investigator and Ms. Chikhani is now one of a handful of attorneys I’ll work with. Knowing that I’m working for an attorney who can effectively direct and utilize my work is essential for me. Laina continues to surprise and impress me with her abilities as well as inspire me with her dedication.

Laina is an absolute gem!

Laina is an absolute gem! I hired her to represent me in a Solano County DUi case from 05. I moved to Oregon years ago and felt it was time to get this matter cleared up and be so I could get on with my life. I was extremely nervous to go back but Laina reassured me and made me feel confident that it would be okay. And it was! After years of being scared at the though of jail time in a different state, I walked into court with an amazing attorney by my side. Laina was professional and compassionate as she walked me through the process and gave me hope that my life was about to begin again. And it did! I am now a legally licensed driver and am able to drive myself to my new job.

I highly recommend Laina to anyone who has dui problems. She will treat you with respect and see that you get the best possible outcome.

Good luck

To label her as knowledgable & proficient in her art would be an understatement

To label her as knowledgable & proficient in her art would be an understatement.. and I say that from personally seeing her in action. Mrs. Laina Chikahni fights hard for her clients and genuinely cares about her clients. She actively inquires about her clients throughout the duration of their case to ensure they are doing okay or if they need any help. At the end of the day I can say without any hesitation that Mrs. Chikhani is the best person for DUI cases. For me.. she has successfully resolved 2 DUI cases, both of which I have received in 6 months time. So you can imagine what that may feel like. Through a whirlwind of stress & overthinking, Mrs. Chikhani assured me that she will do the best she can to work things in my favor and she did. I served no jail time, no days of community service, and was able to cut my fines in half. She is skilled, (more than) qualified, & caring. I will choose her everytime, and so should you.

Skill & expertise at its finest

Where do I start..
Having 2 DUI’s in less than 6 months was not something I expected to have on my plate. It was something that occurred so sudden & i was afraid of what would happen to me had i not took care of this in the best way possible. Here is where Mrs. Laina Chikhani comes in. Words aren’t enough to explain how much she helped me resolve this matter, which i can confidently say wouldn’t have been done without her help. On the day of conviction I didn’t serve any jail time or community service alternative. I was very stressed out because I had no idea what to expect. Personally I couldn’t afford to have anything obstruct my current schedule going to school & working in the midst of this mess I put myself in. Maybe it was my good luck that allowed me to find Mrs. Laina Chikahni after my first DUI, and upon our first meeting I was confident that this was an individual versed in her craft, and cared about her clients. Thank you Mrs. Laina Chikhani. Her professionalism, expertise in her field, and the connections she has built that work in her favor every time. You will not go wrong with Mrs. Chikahni…ever.
