Client Testimonials


“Tim Pestotnik is one of the smartest, most polished and dogged attorneys I have ever worked with. In a recent case we worked on together, he was able to collect our claim with interest without ultimately having to go to trial and somehow he even made the opponent feel okay about the result. Pestotnik LLP has always responded to our needs in a very responsive and timely manner. I would not hesitate to use them in the future.”

-John Davis, Movie Producer, CEO Davis Entertainment

“I have worked with Tim Pestotnik for over 10 years. During that time, he has represented several of my companies, both public and private. As a former practicing attorney myself, I know a unique, outstanding attorney when I see one, and Tim is one such person. Not only does he achieve excellent results, but he also does so with absolute integrity, fair pricing, and a powerful work ethic.”

-William F. Wright, Chairman, Amcon Corporation

“No sane person would wish to be involved in litigation but sometimes it can’t be avoided. My corporation was defrauded a large sum of money and the perpetrator told me that it would be a waste of time and additional funds if I attempted to sue him personally as well as a corporation. I contacted Russell Gold at Pestotnik + Gold. Russ and his partner, Tim Pestotnik, accepted my case and have done a remarkable job of jumping through all the hoops and obstacles placed in their path by the defendant. Russ and Tim thoroughly prepared themselves and me for the trial which took place in Orange County. Upon conclusion of the trial, the judge made an immediate fraud judgment in my favor for over one million dollars. If someone has to go through litigation at least do it with people like Russ Gold, Tim Pestotnik, and Russ Winslow.”

-Don Simon, President, DRS Trading Co., Inc.

“It seems like only yesterday that my company was on the verge of extinction. Two groups of significant shareholders were embroiled in a dispute. My future and the future of my family and the company’s employees were in serious danger. I had to sue. Enter Tim Pestotnik and Russ Gold, two very capable and passionate attorneys. They waged an aggressive attack on my behalf and saved my company from financial ruin. Now, many years later, these men are not just my lawyers, they are my friends!”

-Jenny Forward, President, Specialty Manufacturing, Inc.

“I have worked closely with Tim and Russ for approximately three years. They were thorough, timely and creative. They did an excellent job communicating the progress of the case to me and were successful at reaching an early settlement. I highly recommend them for anyone seeking litigation representation.”

-Dave Rane, Chief Financial Officer, World Waste Technologies, Inc.

“Tim Pestotnik was selected from several others considered as my lead defense counsel for a complicated shareholder class action lawsuit. Tim aggressively pursued the protection of our interests and the successful conclusion of the case. He delivered on both. I would highly recommend him when you need results.”
