Aruin Maini is one of the best criminal defence lawyers in Toronto, he used the facts of my case to prove that I was it guilty of the charges against me. With Aruin Maini you get solid work on all fronts, he is very very knowledgeable and takes the time to really understand and connect with his clients.
Arun Maini is a very good lawyer. I am very satisfied with his service and I highly recommend him. I was very stressed and nervous, as the prosecutor on my case at the start was very nasty, vicious and dishonest. Arun knew how to combat that in court, and he helped me gain the desired outcome in the end. He did a fantastic job.
Thank god I got the pleasure of meeting Arun,Maini I was referred to him from a friend who had nothing but good things to say about him. I later thank them both.
Honest, fair, knowledgeable and trustworthy. There was no surprises with Arun or the case. Excellent communication throughout the whole process. Very easy to get a hold of and responds quickly. Arun listens and communicates effectively. Highly recommended.
I was totally satisfied by Arun performance. He is the lawyer who cares about his clients, and focuses on providing the best quality of service. Very knowledgeable and responsive. I hired Arun Maini to help out with a pretty scary issue, I was worried, but Arun got me sorted out, and made me feel better. He was awesome to work with.
Excellent and efficient communication and quick response when absolutely needed. Arun guided through a complex situation made even more complex by the COVID restrictions and got me to a far better than imagined outcome. He did this professionally, patiently and with very clear and concise information at each step.
Arun Maini has represented me twice now as legal counsel. Both times I have been more then satisfied with the outcome. He has extensive knowledge of the criminal law proceedings, and will make sure there are no surprises going into court.
I contacted Arun regarding my son?s incident in which he was involved in a group activity but was the only one who got charged. It was clear to me that his participation as a group member was overly mistaken by the school and the police to drag him into a legal matter.
We found ourselves in a very stressful and unexpected situation. Right from the start Mr. Maini was helpful and took the time to explain the initial process late Friday night. Once we hired Mr. Maini, there was always timely, honest, detailed and knowledgable advice given to any questions that arose.
Mr.Arun S. Maini is amazing lawyer.you can trust him with your close eyes.
