I retained Mr. Alavi to represent me at three hearing TPO, EVICTIONS, and CRIMINAL WARRANT. He did NOT show up for the hearings. His so called assistant claimed she tried to reach him via text; for over 3 weeks. The judges as the hearing made me represent myself. Long story short; I have had to file a dispute with my bank for payments made to Mr. Alavi. I have initiated a complaint with the GA Bar; I am waiting for the paperwork on that. I thought I could trust this guy; I was SADLY mistaken!!! RUN AWAY DO NOT HIRE HIM. I got a TPO issued against me I got evicted I have criminal charges pending

This guy REALLY fooled me wow!!!!! I dont even know where to begin. As I read the other reviews, I felt the EXACT same as the people below. Im on my 5th!!! pre trial now because every single time hes supposed to show up, he has someone fax something to the courts saying hes got "sick children, or hes busy. Not only will he not show up, but i've been trying to contact him for months!! He used to have receptionists at his office,not anymore, all calls to his office are forwarded to a lady named Kim Pruit. Not only is this lady EXTREMELY rude, but she will lie for Mr. Alavi and come up with every excuse in the world on why he cant call me back and why hes not there. I paid them 10,000 dollars!!!!!!!! Now I am left with no money and no lawyer. As usual in the beginning he promised me all sorts of things. I now have to find a new lawyer and somehow come up with MORE money. This guy is a FRAUD. PLease, for the love of god do not pay this guy any money for representation. I wonder who wrote those rave reviews? I want to band together with all the other victims. Heres my email. email@example.com

Expect a revolving door of representation if your case goes on beyond a couple of months, each knowing less about the matter than the last. Follow through is poor and communications is purely client driven. Run away.

Understanding the essential core law objective,in which encompasses the central basis of client satisfaction, Romin V. Alavi is seasoned in dealing with the criminal/civil aspects which best satisfies his clients...on a scale of 1-10, I would rate Romin a number 9.

Life sometimes hit you when you least expect it and when that happens you feel the weight of the world is on you. When you go through the major storms of life in the legal world, if you do not have proper representation, your whole world can fall apart in a matter of minutes. Well, knowing that fact, I relied heavily on my inner feelings to hire Mr. Alavi on a case involving my son. This was a delicate case that could have gone sour if not properly handled. Well, after a few weeks of intense suspense, I am pleased to announced that Mr. Alavi's expertise delivered excellent results --all charges were dropped. It makes a significant difference when a passionate attorney works on your case. This attorney comes highly recommended from our family.

This attorney delivers quality service to its clients. He is extremely professional and is passionate about what he does. Mr. Alavi takes the time to explain what can potential take place with a case and what he can do on his end. I have dealt with other attorneys and have never experience this kind of service. I highly recommend Romin Alavi to anyone looking for a highly qualified attorney with many years of experience.

This firm exceeded our expectations. Mr. Alavi personally represented us and went above and beyond to ensure that the legal process was smooth and comfortable. He thoroughly explained every single step of the process and was always available to answer any questions regarding the case even after hours. Our entire family was impressed with Mr. Alavi's professionalism and personal attention to every detail. I have dealt with many attorneys in the past and have never received this kind of service. You cannot put a price on this experience. We highly recommend Mr. Alavi! He was truly a blessing.

Run!!!Romin Alavi will meet with you once, say what he's going to do,then never meet with you again. He passes you on to an attorney who you've never even met before and ignores you totally afterward. He always late for court as one officer stated when I was looking for him in court. He also will not represent you in court, he's too important for giving you his time.Romin has his staff tell clients, after they gotten all of your money, that he's in an accident, sick and every other excuse to not meet with you. And his office manager/ body guard, Susan, is rude and very nasty in the way she talks to you.

I beleieve the associate themselves posted the rave reviews found on this site. It takes them days to call you back. They say they will accept collect calls from thier clients in jail, but do not. My husband has been in jail for a month and still has no bond date. They say they are filing motions and are not, these are a matter of publice record and the dates they say they filed week off by WEEKS. Please, if you care about someone who is in jail or in trouble, you'd be better off with a publice defender or ANYone other than these people. I actually had to contact the Georgia Bar Association.

The firm's website does not represent the attorney it employs. Romin promised to take our case, a serious felony, and promised to win but after the initial visit, I never saw him again. He did not answer emails or return phone calls. Completely disappeared. The attorneys that took his place, I did know and didn't have an opportunity to determine if I would want them representing us. If you are charged with a serious felony, you should seek another firm.

This firm is very professional and they are very sincere with their clients. They made me feel comfortable and made sure that I understood the entire process. I would highly recommend them.

I experienced a legal issue that was keeping me up at night...every night! I called Plichta, Alavi & Associates. I was treated with respect even though the accusations didn't look too good on my behalf. This firm has to be one of the best, if not the best attorney firms in the state. Nice and knowledgeable!
