This is my first time needing an attorney. It was a pretty minor case but just like most first timers, I was freaking out quite a bit. After contacting several attorneys, I went with Attorney Rakhlin. At the initial contact, he listened attentively and quickly build a profile of how he is going to handle it. What are my advantages as well as my disadvantages. What I would need to present to better my case. This gave me a lot of confidence. During the hearing, he was very assuring and professional. He hand held me through my case and was very helpful whenever I need him.

My Court date was 10 days away. So after searching Google for someone that Specializes in my case i found Irvin Rakhlin’s offices. So i submitted my info into his Free case evaluation. I was delighted to get a phone call at 9am on Tuesday.Irvin was very reassuring during our initial consultation and made me feel very at ease with the whole process. I am Disabled and money is tight, so it was nice find someone with a Heart. We were able to work things out so he took my case. He informed me of all the documents i needed and we met on Friday. Court date was on Monday. So over the weekend he communicated with me multiple times to get everything in order. On Monday morning Irvin fought Boston traffic to Lynn courthouse.Not the easiest ride.

Irv was willing to meet with me away from his office location. Our first meeting he was very informational and explanatory of the process and what he would do before he was hired. He worked closely with my daughter to explain the process and help her understand the steps she would need to take or possibly need to take along the way. Some complications occurred during the process and Irv had multiple solutions and continued to work with the system to end up getting her fully cleared of the charges. This process took over 6 months to complete and along the way he would continue to give us updates on progress and multiple times worked around scheduling issues we had. Whenever we contacted him with fears or concerns or just general questions, he always responded within 24 hours to ease the fears or let us know where we were in the process.

I worked with Attorney Irvin Rakhlin to obtain a harassment order. This was my very first time ever going to court or needing legal counsel, so needless to say I was anxious and nervous about the process. Attorney Rakhlin was extremely thoughtful throughout the entire process. Attorney Rakhlin was referred to me by a friend, at first glance I was curious how someone who does criminal defense could help me, but after our first conversation I knew he was the guy for the job. Attorney Rakhlin spent nearly an hour on the phone with me listening to my situation (free of charge) before I committed to working with him. At no point did I ever feel like Attorney Rakhlin rushed me, he was very thoughtful, and thorough during the entire process. We met in person to go over additional information and to prep and even the night before court on a SUNDAY Attorney Rakhlin spent 30 minute recapping and re-prepping. Long story short is I won my case and I contribute a lot of that to Attorney Rakhlin’s research and preparation. I’d recommend him to anyone!

Mr. Rakhlin is a great lawyer who helped me get past some legal issues very easily! He is a very nice guy and understands that people make mistakes and finds the best and most manageable way to get you out of them as best as he can. During my hearing I had around a month ago, he was by my side and was very passionate while doing his job for me. Also, for how good of a lawyer he is, the price is very reasonable! I would recommend him hands down.

I can’t express how lucky I was to find Attorney Irvin Rakhlin. I was being accused of saying some really bad thing that could have brought criminal charges on me. Less than 24 hours after emailing Irvin he called me back and ask to hear my story. Not only did he do an amazing job on getting this problem resolved before it every went to trial, but best of all he kept my good name and clean Record intact. Also, before talking to attorney Rakhlin I was having sleepless night and was unable to eat because of all the stress I was going thought. After our first meeting most of my stress went away and I had my first night of sleep in almost a month. I can’t express how thankful I was to have someone with great experience on my side to help me through my problem. I would definitely make Irvin Rakhlin my first and only choice if I ever needed a lawyer again.

I had never had a run-in with the legal system. My situation required candor, discretion and a strategy that would encourage a favorable outcome. Irv was excellent. His advice and knowledge of the legal system was phenomenal. I would use his services in a heartbeat…

– Client


I sought Irvin’s counsel on a legal matter. I want to say that he was well informed about the laws, but what stood out most to me was how “human” he is. He had an ability to see deep into my conflict and offer advice that was beyond legal. He saw the whole of my situation, the bigger picture. Sometimes what you need and what you think you need are 2 different things. He could have taken my case to court and made more money off me. But he offered other options to me that were more valuable than what court could have offered, saving me time and money, but still getting me on track to my resolution. In short, he is a human first and a lawyer second.

Mr. Rakhlin was really amazing in handling and convincing the judge in dismissing my restitution of $40K, which I’ve been reimbursing slowly and painfully for the past 15 years. From the first time I spoke to Mr. Rakhlin, he took the time to listen to my case and gathered all the pertinent details. He then came back to me with a well thought out approach. Even though Mr. Rakhlin is a very pragmatic person, his confidence and bright personality made me believe that it would be possible to somehow convince the judge to at least reduce the restitution amount. After only 2 court dates, Mr. Rakhlin skillful speech and pertinent reasoning convinced the judge that enough was enough…that I’ve paid my debt…and that it was fair for me to be set free of this heavy weight I’ve been carrying for so long. Mr. Rakhlin has not only just saved me $40K, but also removed wound that was constantly causing me stress and grief. And for that, I’m forever grateful and feel so blessed to have met him and hired his top notch services. He did a far better job than my first lawyer that was one of those famous/expensive lawyers who are too busy to see you. I would definitely recommend Mr. Rakhlin to anyone needing a serious/professional/skillful lawyer.

Mr. Rakhlin is a top notch attorney! He’s straight forward, honest, and very attentive when you speak to him, he’ll listen to you and then tell you best case, worse case scenarios, and does what he needs to get the verdict you want or hope for. 5 stars isn’t enough for him in my opinion.

I contacted attorney Rakhlin for the first time late on a Saturday night to seek his legal representation on the upcoming Tuesday morning at a court hearing. He responded to my request early on the following Sunday morning. After discussing over the phone the details pertaining to my case, he explained to me what his approach method would be to address the situation and what the possible outcomes could be. I could immediate tell he was very knowledgeable about the matter. I truly appreciated the time he dedicated to explain to me very carefully the whole situation I was involved in. From the moment we stepped inside the court on the day of the hearing I could tell he was prepared to put up a good defense on my behalf and would not settle easily unless he got the best possible deal for me. He represented me on the court hearing and managed to dismiss my case prior to arraignment with the NO criminal record. I hope not to ever find myself involved in a criminal case, but should I ever require legal representation again I would not doubt for a second to contact attorney Rakhlin. I would most definitely recommend his services to anyone in need of outstanding legal representation.

I would recommend Attorney Rakhlin to anyone facing a criminal charge. He was attentive, thoughtful, informed and confident, which helped to ease my uneasiness of the situation. He was there for me when I needed him, and instead of feeling bullied by the system, I felt as though I had a smart and capable champion on my side. In the end he had the case dismissed and helped me overcome the emotional hurdle that court proceedings can be. Irv was professional and prepared, while understanding of the situation. Contacting him was easy and there was no miscommunication between us. I would recommend his legal services to anyone who finds themselves in a similar position as I did.

I was referred to Irv Rakhlin from another attorney in Boston, that spoke very highly of him. From the first meeting, I knew that his colleagues’ praise was accurate. Attorney Rakhlin was extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of my criminal case, and kept me informed, not only of the process, but also the reasoning behind his strategy. I felt like I had an attorney that was looking out for my best interests right from the start. Without going into detail on the specific charges, I can say that a dismissal (prior to arraignment) is extremely rare, if not unheard of in such a criminal matter. I had several personal and professional liabilities that were intricately linked to the outcome of this case, and Attorney Rakhlin understood and took stake in the importance of this matter in my life.I truly believe because of Attorney Rakhlin’s dedication, as well as his intimate understanding of ALL the nuances of the legal process, he was able to achieve just that: Dismissal PRIOR to arraignment. It’s very apparent that he takes a personal stake in his clients success. If you are looking for an attorney that is not only knowledgeable and talented, but also thoroughly enjoys his craft and takes pride in his client’s positive results, than look no further. Irv Rakhlin is a true asset to his profession.

I contacted two other attorneys prior to working with Attorney Rakhlin. I was always able to get in touch with him when I needed to. He was able to communicated with police detectives on my behalf in a timely manner and handled the case with professionalism. He believed and reassured me, and I did not feel judged. The charges against me were eventually dismissed. If I had hired a different lawyer, I don’t think I would have gotten the same outcome. I was glad I was able to find him not only as my attorney but also as my advocate.

– Client


I came to Attorney Rakhlin very doubtful whether or not he’d be a good attorney for me or not. He offered me a reasonable price, so I took the risk hoping for the best. He exceeded all my expectations. He always kept me up to date with anything I needed to know or do regarding my case. He responded to all my texts or calls, His communication is great. I was never lost about anything. I am now just waiting for my case to be dismissed which was the best possible outcome for me, which I am very pleased with. Attorney Rakhlin is about his business, he was always on point with everything. I absolutely recommend him for anyone looking for a great attorney. Attorney Rakhlin gets the job done!

Irvin represented me recently. I interviewed him along with two other attorneys. His rates were comparable to the other two. The main reason I chose him instead of the others was because he doesn’t accept too many cases at a time. He was always ready to make enough time for me. It was clear from the beginning through the trial that he was overly prepared. He made a point to prepare for the worst case scenario. He was up front from the beginning (even before I hired him) about the good and the bad of my case. I never got the impression that he was trying to tell me what I wanted to hear just to get my business. As evidence of this, his tone and demeanor didn’t change after I hired him. He helped me to feel at ease before each court date by telling me exactly what I needed to know and what I needed to do before hand. He told me things as specific as to put my hands by my side when called or what to wear for trial. My favorite thing about Irvin was the difference in the way I felt appearing in court before he was there with me and after. Before, I felt nameless. Not a single person in the court room cared about me as a person. I was just another case. When he appeared with me, he went out of his way to introduce himself to various people in the courtroom sometimes giving them details of the case before court was in session. In the end, I received the best judgement possible for me: case dismissed. It could not have gone better.

Irv is a thorough, professional, considerate, and passionate lawyer who worked hard to reach to the ideal finish in what would otherwise have been a stressful case for a crime I did not commit.Irv went above and beyond to meet my needs and be flexibly with hours, calls, meetings, etc. He was always prepared for the worst scenarios but was just as prepared to take advantage of any positive opportunities — and almost just as importantly, he kept his client in the know on what is going on and what to expect next. Irv was always prepared from a tactical and strategic standpoint, and was able to invest extra time to keep his client informed. This approach was extremely effective and resulted in me feeling 100% at ease and stress free throughout the entire process. I would recommend Irv’s services to a friend without hesitation. He is extremely easy to work with and goes the extra mile to best position you and your case for success.

A thorough and excellent criminal defense lawyer. Atty. Rahklin, withinin just a few days, had all charges dismissed against me for charges that he proved were not committed by me. Methodical, and to the point on every issue, he requested specific documents and information that proved my innocence. A great lawyer who deserves a 12 on a 10 point scale.

Irvin Rakhlin is a law genius. He not only comprehends the law but also all of the other facets of winning a case. He has excellent social skills and an understanding of social dynamics which allows him to stay on top of all of the details. Basically, he is a full-service lawyer and can actually yield unexpectedly great results. He not only helped me win my case, but he also skillfully guided me through it psychologically.

Irvin is by far the most talented and skillful lawyer. At first I was looking online at different lawyers and honestly none caught my eye until I got to Irvin Rakhlin’s website. After reading his information on his website I made the call around 8:00 pm and left a voicemail letting him know my situation. The very next morning, he called me back and scheduled a meeting. First time meeting him face to face, he was very kind and answering all my questions fully and very carefully making sure I understood everything. Before my court date, he kept calling/emailing me making sure everything is good and if I had any questions. He gave me step by step plans of what he was going to do for me on my court date. Also he was even kind enough to go that extra mile to make sure I was ok emotionally because this was my first time going to court. He made sure every step of the way that I was ok and ready. On the court date, he was very professional and made sure the judge knew that he’ll fight for me no matter what the outcome would be. The outcome of sentence was light and that is all thanks to Irvin. All I got was a 3 month probation and everyone in the court said “Wow thats a lucky break. You got off really easy”. I looked back and said “Its all thanks to my lawyer!” He wanted the judge to know that I’m a good person so he made me do tasks before the court date like get letters from friends and co-workers stating that I’m a good friend and a very good/hardworking co-worker. He knew right away the type of person I am and he wanted the entire court to see what he sees in me. He wasn’t like the other lawyers who only see their clients as money bags walking into their office. Irvin is different and that what makes him the outstanding lawyer he is. He gets to know you first then get to know the situation. How it happened. Who started it. How did it end. He also is their 24/7….literally. I called him late during one night because I got very worried of the court case coming up. He answered his phone and calmed me down, helping to relax me and put my mind at ease. That meant a lot because he took time from he’s off hours to help. Overall if you are looking for a lawyer who actually cares about the people who walks through the door into their office then Irvin Rakhlin is that man!!! I saved his information so if I have any other situation or any family/friends need a outstanding,smart,caring,professional lawyer. Irvin Rakhlin is that man for the task. Trust me, any task he gets, he’ll complete it 100% and will even go the extra 20% to make sure the task is completed at its very best. Again Irvin Rakhlin is truly great and I can’t thank him enough for what he done for me. I truly thank you very much Irvin for everything!!!

It was a pleasure working with Irvin and I would highly recommend him or any legal matters. From my first conversation with Irvin, he outlined a strategy for dealing with my situation, with details regarding what he would need from me as well as what steps he would take. He was genuine in his interest in helping me and he inspired confidence that he would help me attain the best outcome possible. While working with him over the course of a month, he was responsive to all of my questions, while keeping me informed of what steps he was taking. From the day of my initial hearing, he had a plan and throughout the month, we were able to execute on that plan and ultimately gain a dismissal of my case. Irving put me at ease and I was comfortable working with him, as I felt he was doing all that was possible to help me.

I was only given six days notice for my hearing date. Although I had plenty of evidence to prove my case–too much evidence–I was frightened. The other party wasn’t going to show evidence, they had an agenda, and their story was going to be shaped by it. Would the judge be able to see the truth? If he didn’t, would it be a failing in my presentation of the facts? I continued to work assiduously, losing sleep, it was becoming apparent that I needed help. Two days before the hearing, an advocate told me that with all the evidence I had, I should seek legal counsel. Frantically, I began calling firms. I was referred to Mr. Rakhlin by another attorney, and though I began to get calls back from several attorneys that afternoon, I called him back. He spent 20 minutes on the phone listening carefully to the details of my case. We had little time, so he agreed to meet me that night to go over what I had. From the bag crammed with photos and documents, attorney Rakhlin expertly parsed it down to a succinct, robust defense. During the meeting, I felt myself gradually letting go; finally, I had help. As I was leaving, he shook my hand and told me to let him do the worrying that I had so obviously been afflicted with. I experiences profound relief when the case was dismissed, and I knew my decision to have attorney Rakhlin represent me was right choice. I highly recommend him.

I switched lawyers to have Attorney Rakhlin represent my case. In a perfect world, I would have not needed a lawyer at all, and could trust that the justice system would work things out, but as a person with my whole life and career ahead of me, I couldn’t take any chances. There are so many people whose voices don’t get heard, and I didn’t want to be one of them. It was for this reason that it was important that my lawyer be able to get the facts across, and to portray his client (me) and the case accurately. From the beginning, I had a feeling of confidence in him that I didn’t get from my former lawyer. It made me feel like he was really doing the work, not just phoning it in. That he cared. I think this makes all the difference. He definitely wasn’t the type of lawyer who ran through the motions. He was respectful to all the court’s people he had to deal with, but assertive and motivated. I think it’s important to mention that he never mislead me, or gave me false hopes. He laid all the information out for me, and the possible outcomes. But by the way he conducted himself, and the case, he comforted me and gave me confidence in him. As for the little things, I can say that he was very accommodating in making appointments with me and talking on the phone, keeping me abreast of his progress, and what the next steps were. He also was very good at explaining the legal information, in an easy to understand way. I do not know where I would have been without him, but I’m glad I didn’t have to find out. And that, is priceless. I can not thank him enough.

This past fall I found myself in a situation that I never dreamt of being in. I was arrested and charged with two criminal offenses that had the potential to permanently alter my life. I had never been in a situation like this before, I felt completely lost and had no idea what steps to take in order to make sure I would be given due process. Without ever meeting me, Irv represented me in court on short notice when a family member who was representing me wasn’t able to do so. Irv was a true professional in every sense of the word,from the way he carried himself to how he addressed the judge and members of the court. His confidence and knowledge made me feel comfortable and gave me hope that things would turn out ok. He stayed in court for the full day, 8-4, when he wasn’t obligated to and had clients of his own to attend to. That speaks volumes for who he is as a person. Irv fought for me and got my charges dropped that very day. I am at loss for words when thinking of what Irv did for me that day. He still checks in on me every so often and offers guidance and assistance. Irv kept my life on the right track and I am forever grateful to him. I highly recommend Irv to anyone who needs an attorney. He’s a stand up individual who fights for what he believes in and it is an honor to have him represent you.

When my 17 year old son was facing criminal charges from 2 separate instances I enlisted the services of Irvin Rakhlin. We discussed the charges that were being brought and also agreed that my son needed to be made aware of the consequences of his actions and what he was facing if he was to be charged with said offenses. Irvin went above and beyond the call of duty not only as a lawyer but educated my son as to the seriousness of one of the charges if they were brought against him. He was not only able to get the time of the charges being held reduced but made sure that my son would provide community service and stay on the straight and narrow until the time limit ended. Irvin not only did his job as a lawyer but he also provided a valuable life lesson to my 17 year old who has since gotten a job and has improved his school grades. I highly recommend Irvin Rakhlin.

Irvin was great to work with. He seemed very qualified to be handling my case and understood what I wanted to come out of it. He was always reachable by phone or e-mail and works hard to get you the results you deserve. Easy going individual whose compassion for his clients are admirable.

I was told that Attorney Rakhlin was one of the best defense attorneys in Boston and he proved to be. I was also told when looking for a defense attorney to find someone who had the following traits: negotiating skills, courtroom demeanor, perseverance, analytical skills, knowledge of the law, integrity, communication skills, research skills, understanding of the court system, and care for the client (ie., understanding the clients needs). On each of these skills, I would give Attorney Rakhlin a perfect ten. As described below, his results were fantastic as well. My situation was that after going through a tough time in my life, over the course of many months, I ended up with six outstanding cases that were brought against me. Incredibly, after much work and negotiation with the court system, Attorney Rakhlin was able to get my cases reduced to a mere pre-trial probation of nine months (which he was later able to negotiate down to six months). When I later talked to other attorneys, they told me that with as many cases that I had outstanding (again six in total) that it is very rare to get solely a pre-trial probation for that short period of time. This reinforced the great skills and job Attorney Rakhlin was able to do for me. Below I further elaborate on some more (not all) specific examples with short bullet points of why you should use his services:- While sitting in the courtroom and waiting for my case to be called, I was able to see other attorneys present their cases before mine was called. It was clear to me that Attorney Rakhlin’s skills were the best of those attorneys that I saw on those days I sat in court. – I was able to notice the close relationship and respect that Attorney Rakhlin had with the district attorneys. I feel that they trusted he was out to do the right thing in the court system. That went along way in having my cases resolved as I described above. – His client service was incredible. Any time I contacted him, he either picked up the phone right away or got back to me within minutes (even if he was in court when I contacted him he would text me back within minutes). – When we were walking through the courthouse together it was amazing how he seemed to know everyone. This allowed him to take care of things very efficiently and effectively. I have already discussed how we was able to get my cases resolved in an incredible fashion and against all odds, but his amazing work did not stop there. – After these cases were dismissed, I wanted to have them sealed ASAP, as well, in case any employer that I was interviewing with used a more thorough background check. Attorney Rakhlin was able to get these records sealed only two months after the cases were dismissed. Other lawyers stated that this too was an incredibly short time frame. For the reasons stated above, I sincerely recommend, over any other lawyer that I have seen, Attorney Rakhlin’s services.
