    I had an incident where a person who I had a heated - yet non physical argument with decided to file a restraining order on me and lied in court to get it. Furthermore, this individual proceeded to call my business contacts and tell them of this order and encouraged them to stop doing business with me. I had a consultation with Arkady Bukh and told him everything. He said I had a good case and I handed it over to him to take care of. We challenged the order and when we went to court, Arkady provided the testimony and evidence to the judge of wrongdoing on the behalf of my accuser and the case was dropped the next day. Arkady Bukh really went to bat for me and helped to clear up this mess I had promptly and professionally. I am very grateful for his service.
