Success Stories

Our Clients Do the Talking – and We Listen

People think lawyers like to talk, and we do. We’re known for our eloquence in the courtroom, but it’s what you say that is most important. When you call us for help, your voice will be heard. A great lawyer is an active listener.

It never hurts to find out how we have impacted the lives of our clients and their loved ones. When someone takes the time to send a personal message, we appreciate the sentiment, and it strengthens our resolve to keep fighting for justice for our clients.

The Kavinoky Law Firm receives many cards, letters and emails from satisfied clients expressing their thanks. We want to thank our clients in return for placing their trust in us during the most stressful times of their lives. These testimonials come from people like you.

Here is what our clients have to say:


You are and your team are worth every penny you charge.  I hope I don’t know anyone else who has to go through this but you can bet I will be singing your praises for years to come.

L.M. and T.M.

Thank you for your support and help. As always, the Kavinoky Law Firm came through for me. I am so glad I can count on you when I really need help!

M.M. -Los Angeles

Just when I think you can’t possibly impress me more than you have thus far, I read through your motion to suppress and find myself in awe.  You’re a star and I couldn’t be happier or luckier to have you representing me!


R.S. -Van Nuys

Thank you so much for all that your team have done for C and me.  You all have truly been a blessing by assisting us and saving us much hardship.

We will always be indebted to you!  I will gladly refer your team to anyone needing your services.


K.B. -Santa Rosa

Thanks for being a huge support today. I will never forget your awesome efforts. Taking professionalism to an art form is what I see. Cheers, mate.”

J.S. -San Diego

Mr. Kavinoky’s firm was not only professional and courteous but they took the time to listen to my story and explain what my options were. They’re not the cheapest firm, but I suppose you get what you pay for. They really went above and beyond the call of duty for me. I’d recommend them to anyone that needs a good lawyer.

R.S. -Encino

They really know their stuff. They are not judgmental whatsoever. They took care of every aspect of my case without me even stepping in a courtroom. Now I can just get past that ordeal and move on. I really like how they can get your record cleared, so it appears that your record never even existed. I never knew anyone can do that.

G.L. -Encino

I can’t thank you enough for the time you took last Friday educating me and calming me down. I actually should correct that statement with the many times you spoke with me. I thank you all in advance for your help and service in keeping me out of jail! I also thank you on behalf of my fiancé!

C.L. -San Diego

I have not made this statement since I was a teenager, but I feel it’s appropriate now; you’re a Rock Star! Thank you!

L.E. -Los Angeles

The staff and attorneys at The Kavinoky Law Firm have assisted our family members to navigate through the legal process very professionally, as well as having a personal touch. We were always able to have our questions thoroughly answered. The outcome they secured will set our child on a path for resuming accomplishment, rather than spending unproductive time incarcerated after making a poor decision that caused a legal issue.

K.S. -Walnut Creek

First I would like to say thank you for all the work that was put in by your firm to obtain the wet reckless for my son. You have no idea, this experience has been a category 5 hurricane and because of the hard work put in by The Kavinoky Law Firm it feels like a spring shower, ok maybe a tropical storm. Thank you again.

B.N. -San Francisco

We cannot begin to express our gratitude and appreciation for the excellent representation that you and your firm provided. We were truly at our wit’s end without knowing which direction to turn. Darren, you once again proved to be our knight in shining armor, coming to the rescue with such heartfelt advice and expert console during this most confusing and stressful time.

T.M. -San Francisco

I was amazed and enormously grateful to have you meet us at the courthouse. Your team was absolutely stunning in their defense for us. They possessed incredible insight into the situation and took the time to maintain a continuous dialogue of informative communication with us throughout. They were stellar and on point with the district attorney and the judge, somehow obtaining a judgment that I thought would have been an impossibility just weeks before!

S.A. and G.A. -Los Angeles

Thank you for the email keeping me updated concerning my case. I greatly appreciate your team keeping me informed as well as working hard representing me. If there is anything I can do for you at any time please feel free to contact me.

D.M. -San Diego

I can’t thank you and your team enough for the gifts and beautiful luncheon you served to our clients (and staff).  It was an amazing and an incredibly heartfelt afternoon.  The meaningful sharing of all your stories really hit home with the women and in fact all of us here.  I know that I am not only speaking for myself when I say your sharing put me in touch with why we do the work we do to begin with. Needless to say we do need those reminders to. I don’t have to tell you it gets tough sometimes.

K.P., Via Avanta – Substance Abuse Services for Women


I hope this email finds you and your team well.  I certainly appreciate the work that you and your firm put into my case.  The resolution on the civilian side was excellent.


H.S. -San Diego

Dear KLF, we cannot thank you enough for all your good hard work in getting my license unsuspended. I am delighted. Please give our thanks to the entire staff. Once again thanks a million.

F.T. -Santa Clarita

Dear Darren:

I wanted to take the time to thank you for your firm’s service and support over the last few months. Your team did an outstanding job representing me and basically taking care of my every need as it related to the DUI and Hit and Run charges that were pending against me. From my initial conversation, I knew that your firm was going to be the perfect match for me. Darren, I have future political ambitions. I felt my career and future ended the night of the arrest. I contacted your office a couple days later and your team immediately put me at ease. Their professionalism and caring attitude assured me that everything was going to be okay. I was so impressed that you took the time to introduce me to your team. This provided me the comfort level that I was going to get top notch service and that I made a good choice.  I had other options as many close family members and friends had legal connections for me to consider. My mind was made up after I left your office.

After my in-person meeting with your team, I was contacted promptly by my managing attorney who was going to handle my case and represent me for the DMV hearing and in court. She was so detailed and organized, and acted as if I was her only client. I had several questions and she never made me feel like I was bothering her, all of my constant phone calls and emails always got replies on the same day, even with her crazy schedule. She called me the same day after the meeting with the DMV, as well as the two court appearances, always with the details and more importantly with good news. She is an amazing attorney and has a fantastic presence about her. I can see why she is so successful. I cannot tell you how proud I was of her efforts in getting the “hit and run” thrown out and reducing the DUI charge to a wet reckless. This shows the hard work and time that went in to this case, Darren, I am so impressed with your team. From the initial conversation with the LCI, to the diligent hard working and excellent representation and work my attorney did on the case. I could not have ever asked for a better outcome. I also want to express my thanks to my paralegal. She was very prompt in answering questions I had and ensuring I received documents and communication in a timely manner. Please forgive me but I forget your notary’s name. He was also very kind and informative and helped answer a few questions I had about the DMV process. Please send my thanks to him as well.

We all know the saying “it takes a village” well, you certainly have the best of the best surrounding you and I was so pleased and impressed. If you ever need anything from me personally, or if I can ever support your firm in any way I would not hesitate. I hope to never need your services in the future, but will always utilize you as a referral for family, friends or coworkers in need, and will reach out to you if I ever need a recommendation for other legal advice as I value your opinion. I also hope to be in touch with Susan after the first 5-6 months to discuss how we can reduce or eliminate probation. The words “Thank You” cannot express my gratitude. I am so impressed with your firm and the effort that went in to my representation during this very difficult time in my life.

J.W. -Los Angeles


Dear Darren,

I can’t thank you and your firm enough, for the outstanding work on this matter.

We couldn’t have hoped for a better outcome. (Case was not filed)

I enjoyed talking with you over the phone. Looking forward to meeting you one day in the near future.

L.F. -Los Angeles

I wanted to say “Thank You” again for everything you’re doing.  I truly appreciate your patience with answering my endless questions and taking me by the hand and walking me through this very trying time in my life.  I feel very lucky and fortunate to have you and Darren as my legal counsel. I hope you have a wonderful week and thank you for being such a great support!

R.T. -Orange County

Thank you very much for your services. It was a pleasure having you represent me in such a professional way. If I need anything else I will not hesitate to contact you.

Take care of yourself.

M.E. -Orange County

Dear Darren,

I have no words to thank you for the excellent job you did for me I believe I am a new man I see things different and I value life so different that before, so yes I thank you very much just for the way you are, now I know where to go or where to guide my friends or anybody that need help.

G.R. -Los Angeles

Dear KLF Staff,

On behalf of our Family, we would like to thank you for your legal services. With your legal expertise, you obtained the best possible outcome for our daughter. More power to the Kavinoky Law Firm. Hope you had A Merry Christmas. Wishing you all a Blessed New Year! God Bless You!

Sincerely Yours,

A.F. -San Diego

I just wanted to thank the whole Kavinoky Law Firm. My attorney is the only true lawyer I have ever met and I have had the displeasure of meeting a lot.

He represented my son on his fourth DUI case. He taught us both more in 15 minutes than any of the other 3 did in weeks. He explained what we were up against, what might happen, what he was going for, and what he could not do. He fought for my son with the DA who as always kept trying to change the agreement. He stood toe to toe and made him stick to the agreement. I can honestly say it was the best money I have spent on my son before or since. I can wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone needing a lawyer for anything.

J.A.L. -San Francisco

Dear Darren and The KLF:

I want to thank each of you for your diligence, patience, talent and great result.

Everyone was always pleasant and helpful in keeping me informed, even during those times when I was not always readily available.  Thank you. I greatly appreciated and valued your calm, thoughtful, knowledgeable and nonjudgmental manner, I am so very fortunate to have had you representing me.  The outcome could not have been better.  You are the best. Lastly, Darren, thank you so very much for your willingness to help and work with me during this difficult time in my life.  Your financial flexibility allowed me the privilege of being represented by you and the very best legal defense team.  I will enthusiastically refer you any of my private patients who would benefit from your help and services. Please do not hesitate to call me if you feel that I can ever be of assistance to any of you.

A.L. -Pacific Palisades

Thank you so much again KLF!

Again, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate all your efforts, professionalism, compassion, and skill!

Warm regards,

C.H. -San Diego

Team KLF,

Thank you for the kind words.

I can’t tell you how much of a positive impact you and your overall guidance have had on me during this difficult time in my life. I am so grateful for your representation.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

Dear Darren:

I wanted to thank you and your Team for handling my friend’s case.  He is so happy and thankful for the results.  We were roommates throughout college and he is one of the best souls I have ever had the pleasure of knowing in my life.  He is very dear to me and I really am appreciative of what you have done.


A.M. -Orange County

Thank you very much KLF! I am glad you received it! I wish you and the rest of your staff the happiest holiday wishes! A great gift for myself is not having to worry about this anymore! I am now somewhat a free individual and I am actually getting ready to leave the west coast and moving back over to the east coast. I thank you again for all the help you have given me!

Best wishes,

D.L. -Sacramento

Thank you very much, I was really impressed by your radio commercial, and then by your advanced ideas of how to run a law firm. You know, if I hadn’t wrecked my car, ignored the never ending, ever growing pile of DUI lawyer mail, waited so long to decide on a lawyer, or borrowed a classic car without a CD player, I never would have known about your firm, but then I always say, I only have time to meet the people that I’m supposed to meet, and being an artist and a musician, it seemed only fitting that I should choose the firm advertising on my favorite classic rock radio station, KLOS. I am also happy with the service, and the lawyer I have spoken to has been very attentive and has given me the relief and a feeling of security that I really needed.”

Once again, thank you,

B.A. -Los Angeles

Thank you guys SO much for all of your efforts and for working so hard to resolve this. I am deeply grateful and will continue to recommend you to everyone I know.”

All the best,

M.D. -Los Angeles

Dear KLF,

I wanted to thank your firm for giving me a second chance. Without your help I could have faced 3 years in jail, something I never want to have happen to me. This incident brought me back down to earth in terms of my family, school, and social life. I am so grateful for everything you guys have done for me and will do my utmost to better myself and my attitude towards life in general. This firm will ultimately be responsible for giving me the success I need, and I am forever grateful to you and The Kavinoky Law firm for it.


C.H. -Los Angeles

Dear Darren,

Once again, I am moved to express my deepest and most profound gratitude toward your firm. To say that your team was in my corner would be to do them the disservice of understating events. Your skill and devotion not only kept me from despairing…it culminated in a legal victory, the likes of which I had dismissed as utterly unrealistic. Shows what I know. With the expert assistance the entire firm, they pulled a rabbit out of a hat. More to the point, they pulled my ass out of a bonfire.”

Thank you…


The work of your people pertaining to my case in Arroyo Grande was done in a very first class and highly ethical fashion.  A very special thanks goes to my attorney for her superb work and contribution…


J.C.  -Arroyo Grande

The KLF helped me through a very difficult time in dealing with an unbelievable Property Destruction charge in Venice Beach after being roofed in a bar and extorted by a cab company who accused me of “ripping the radio out of his dashboard.” I was terrified and overwhelmed by what was happening and my attorney was a wonderful rep and partner in not only getting the charges reduced to a Misdemeanor but also negotiating therapy instead of AA and then getting all charges expunged from my record as soon as it was legally possible. Your team kept me informed, gave me support and educated me so that my fears where replaced by knowledge and hope. Thank you, Kavinoky Law Firm!!!

A.M.  -Venice

I have never had an experience like this. Very difficult time for me, stressed physically and emotionally! However, I can’t thank The KLF enough for their knowledgeable guidance. I was informed of every detail and was contacted with any new results immediately. They were always uplifting and available! Aside of appearance in court you also represented me in my DMV hearing. I listened in on my DMV hearing. I was amazed at the defense in my behalf. They were on top of every detail. As a result we won the case and I was reissued my driver’s license! Not only did The KLF win my DMV case, they gave me piece of mind and emotional support! I would absolutely recommend “The Kavinoky Law Firm.



Thank you! Happy to finally put this all behind me 🙂   I would be happy to recommend you to any and all families and friends, or do a radio commercial testimony or whatever I can do to help you out.  I really felt like you went above and beyond for me.  Thank you
