Sei-Hee is extremely competent and is willing to work with you. I had a DUI charge and she was very thorough about advising me about the different dynamics in court that may impact how I should plead (eg. how the judge typically rules in similar cases, presence of certain witnesses etc). Very responsive and empathetic as well! I’d definitely hire her again
Sei-Hee was referred to me by another lawyer and mutual friend and after my experience with her work I have referred her to several other potential clients. She is generous with her time, thorough and a creative problem solver. When it was clear that there was a possibility to settle our case out of court we proceeded to arbitration. When the arbitration was unsuccessful she taught us how to proceed to take over a large part of the work ourselves in order to save money and report back to her for advice on how to resolve the dispute in court until she was needed again at the end. I am in the process now of filling out the forms she sent me to update my mother’s will, create trusts and do end of life planning. Sei-Hee has a complete package of pre-visit information sheets that once filled out allow us to gather all the information in one place and help her give us the best advice possible.
I was charged with DUI, DUI per se, DWI, and failure to control vehicle speed on highway to avoid collision. Sei-Hee found holes in my case and was willing to fight it but I just wanted to get it over with. On the day of trial, Sei-Hee was able to get me the best outcome out of everyone else in court facing similar charges, unsupervised PBJ for the DWI and the rest of the charges dropped. She is very professional and candid which is why I chose her over other attorneys. Highly recommended.
PROFESSIONALISM, DISPONIBILITY, AND VERY VERY PATIANT LAWYER. She is the most conseiling LAWYER i haven’t have. She knows what to do and where to go THANK AGAIN
Arii was very friendly and heplful. She looked into the case very keenly and provided mutiple options. She did a great and commendable job in my case.
I hired Sei-Hee to handle two cases for me. One in Virginia and one in Maryland. Both times, I felt comfortable knowing that I’m dealing with an attorney with a strong background in criminal defense. Throughout the whole process she was clear, honest, and available to be reached anytime. She constantly followed up with me to make sure she had all the facts to represent my cases. This was the peace of mind knowing that I could rely on Sei-Hee. The end result was a favorable judgement. I would highly recommend Sei-Hee for anyone in need of a criminal defense attorney.
Sei-Hee Arii’s assertiveness in the courtroom is only surpassed by her compassion with her clients. She is a wonder! I exited my last case with the prosecuting attorney looking toward my mother to say, “Thank your attorney, she is something else.” Sei-Hee Arii genuinely cares for her client’s well-being beyond the case and will stop at no end to help. I have known her professionally for 5+ years now and not only has she never let me down, I have never felt like she wasn’t genuinely concerned for my well being. I have made my mistakes (3 criminal charges in 5 years) and Sei-Hee is that which ensured I had the chance to learn from them. I now attend an honor’s college, will graduate in the spring of 2015, and owe it all to her.
Ms. Arii was my defense lawyer for two charges and successfully got them both dropped being on probation it was an awesome feeling to find out these charges were dropped.. thanks again Sei Hee
I enlisted the services of Ms. Arii when I got slapped with 7 tickets – 1 being a DUI. Ms. Arii was very responsive and helpful during the whole process. When it came to my court date, she successfully convinced the prosecutor to strike a plea bargain. My 7 tickets were dismissed and I ended up with a PBJ for reckless driving. I am in the process of expunging that from my records. I am very pleased with the outcome and am thankful to Ms. Arii for helping me move on from this.
Hiring Sei-Hee could be the difference between your case getting dismissed or not. That was my experience. In my DUI case I mentioned early on that the officer was using dash cam and asked that we recover the footage. Sei-Hee requested the footage and when my court date came, we hadn’t received anything. She made sure that the judge set a deadline for when the prosecution had to present that information and then filed immediately for the case to be dismissed the very next day after the footage wasn’t delivered. On my next court date, the (different) judge dismissed my case in it’s entirely. If I would have had an attorney who didn’t make a point to get the other side to commit to a date or didn’t follow up immediately to file the paperwork when it didn’t arrive, I would probably have had a different outcome. Sei-Hee knows what she’s doing and will do what it takes to win the case. Follow her instructions exactly and you’re in good hands.
