About Me

Maryam’s legal career focuses on family law and civil litigation.  In civil litigation, Maryam has represented a number of plaintiffs whose civil rights were undermined by major corporations and insurance companies in both state and federal court.  Throughout her career Maryam has obtained over six figures in combined settlements and jury verdicts in civil matters.

In family law, Maryam is focused on one goal- to obtain the best possible result for her client.  Whether aggressive litigation is necessary or a more collaborative approach is required, a strategy is immediately devised to obtain results.  Maryam works with the client, provides a listening ear through the most difficult time in his/her life, and remains compassionate without compromising aggressive representation.   Maryam knows that her clients are faced with an emotional time and will guide them through the legal proceedings to ensure their legal rights are met.  The Atighechi Law Group focuses on family law which includes, divorce, spousal support, child support, child custody, move away orders, restraining orders and prenuptial agreements. 

Maryam obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Molecular and Cell Biology from the University of Connecticut.  She attended Western State University School of Law where she earned a Juris Doctorate degree.  While at Western, Maryam was one of a select few to be chosen to represent the school in national moot court competitions based on her superior writing and oral skills.  She was honored with the opportunity to travel the nation and represent the school in mock trials.

Maryam is admitted to practice law in California State Court, the United States District Court for the Central District, the United States District Court for the Southern District, is a member of the American Bar Association, the Los Angeles Bar Association, Consumer Attorneys of Los Angeles and is a board member of the Vanguard Repertory Company of the La Canada Flintridge High School.   Maryam is currently in training to become a Court Appointed Special Advocate to assist foster children in the court system.  Maryam is fluent in Farsi. 

The Atighechi Law Group sincerely hopes that you allow us the opportunity to guide you through these difficult times.
