  • Brian Joseph Lockwood

    I absolutely endorse this attorney. We worked together on a complicated criminal/immigration matter, wherein I served as the client's primary criminal attorney. Thanks to Ms. Gasparian, I was able to properly advise my client and work towards resolving the criminal litigation. I was unclear on the immigration aspects of the offense, and she lit the way for my client and I to best handle his case. I would, without hesitation, rely on Ms. Gasparian for any criminal/immigration issues.
