Sarkis Babachanian is my hero!!! On our first meeting, he spent time getting to know me and explaining the process to me, making sure that I understood everything. He was kind, funny, and compassionate. I was highly impressed. Upon hire, he worked very hard to get the charges against me dropped. He remained positive, but realistic, throughout the weeks before my court date. However, said court date never came, because he got everything dismissed. I feel very, very fortunate to have met him and had him as my lawyer. He believed in me and he fought for me. I will always be grateful for what he did for me and I will recommend him highly to anyone who needs good counsel!

Mr. Babachanian is one of the most nicest and caring people I have ever met. Although I was unable to afford him he answered all of my questions (whenever I called) and even did research for me to help me out with my case. He took time out of his busy day to hep someone that wasn't even able to pay him...not many people would have done what he did and for that I am truly grateful....it's not only a paycheck that drives him...he actually wants to help people out. Sarkis is very smart and he knows the legal system like the back of his hand.

Atty. Babachanian has been very nice and reliable from the very first day I got him hired. He's very passionate for what he's doing and shows sincere concern to his clients. It was 11pm when my family had to call him...and he ardently got up from his bed to give immediate assistance. As much as I would want to re-hire him...I would hate to do so...as that would mean I'm in trouble again. Anyhow, I've been very satisfied with the legal services he has provided so far. 2 THUMBS UP for this lawyer!!!

Sarkis Babachanian helped me with a criminal case. He is the best attorney I've ever met. He quickly gathered all the information needed, presented with the options how to handle the case and all possible outcomes and resolutions. He knows his job and all the laws to protect his clients in the best of their interest. He is always reachable, will resolve the issue in the timely manner and available any time you need help. Promptly returns calls and responds to emails. A+++ all he does. Professional, trustworthy, powerful, self confident. The best attorney and highly recomended. Thank you very much Sarkis for all hard work.

I was being charged with a hit and run, and a friend of mine recommended Sarkis, so I took his advice and made an appointment. The minute I walked into Sarkis's office I was told to calm down and take a sit, and that everything will be alright. He gave me a quick rundown of the law, what might happen, and the steps we needed to take in order to prevent escalating the situation. To be honest I've dealt with many lawyers in the past, but none were as experienced and trustworthy as Sarkis. I was a little worried that I might not be able to afford his services, but the guy really knows his business and is really willing to work with clients. In the end Sarkis got me out of trouble with the law, and cleared all the charges on me. I'm very grateful to have met him, and will recommend Sarkis to anyone.

I would definitely recommend this lawyer because he doesn't only work for you as a lawyer-client relationship, but he takes it seriously on what is best for his client. He's been our lawyer for how many years and we really appreciate his BIG help to our family.

The experience that we had with Sarkis was outstanding...he kept us informed at every stage of our Bankruptcy....we don't know what we would have done without him representing us...I would let everyone know he's the go to guy when it comes to professionism and knowledge in all aspects of his profession.....keep up the good work Sarkis....Julie

I was represented by Mr. Babachanian on a misdemeanor charge for driving with a suspended license. From our initial telephone consultation through our in-person meeting through to his ultimate attainment of a sound plea offer for a minimal fine, Mr. Babachanian conducted himself with the utmost warmth, accessibility, professionalism, and excellence. I was so impressed with his wide-ranging legal knowledge and versatility that I have repeatedly returned to his practice with inquiries on a variety of topics. Invariably, his input and guidance are marked by knowledge, wisdom, high value, and unmistakable good instincts. Any person in need of top legal counsel would benefit from Mr. Babachanian's service. Not only is he exceptional in and of himself, but he stands out in a field that tends to be characterized by distant and aloof professionals. Sarkis Babachanian is outstanding.

Sark is an exceptional lawyer. He's advised me on business matters for many years. He cares, he listens, and he gets things done. His advice is always sage and well thought out. His fees are very reasonable and he's worth every penny and more. If you need a lawyer who is both wise and does exactly what he says he'll do, he's your man.

Mr. Babachanian is an outstanding lawyer that goes out of his way to get the job done. I first went to Sarkis not knowing what to expect or how i would deal with the case held against me. Sarkis immediately made me feel comfortable in the way that i felt like i was speaking to an old friend. He is very knowledgeable in criminal defense and gave me options on how to go about my case. Options are key when you feel you have none. Long story short, Mr. Babachanian is a great lawyer with an unyielding commitment to his profession. I have and always will recommend Mr. babachanian to my friends and family.

As a film and video producer, before every new project we have to set the rules for the deliverables and responsibilities of both the Producer and our Client. Telling our client’s stories cinematically is both an Art and Science, and because of that there are thousands of variables to the process of making a film. Babachanian has always been there for us to ensure that both parties completely understand the responsibilities and deliverables, and most importantly Babachanian has always looked in our best interest to make sure that we are well protected in the eyes of law.
Starting a project with a solid legal contract completely changes the way we approach the film production process, and as a producer the peace of mind is crucial to our creativity and business survival. Art Simon Productions highly recommends Babachanian’s legal expertise to anyone dealing in the service sector.

Mr. Babachanian is an outstanding attorney. My particular situation was a bit complicated, so naturally I was a little nervous on picking the right person for the job. Sarkis impressed me right away with his knowledge and familiarity of the courthouse I had been issued to, which is important for anyone to consider. Not only that, but he was extremely patient and thorough in answering all of the questions one has while going through such a legal ordeal. The legal fees were always fair and he let me know in plenty time what I could be potentially facing financially. When dealing with the prosecution, he always took any extra steps he could take to further defend my case. To put it in terms one can understand, I was facing a 3rd DUI, 6 months in Los Angeles County Jail (and possibly more time for a probation violation). My license would have inevitably been revoked about 3-5 years and I would have had to complete 3 years of alchohol classes. But like I said; Sarkis is an outstanding attorney! Thanks to Sarkis, I walked out of court with what is called a 'wet wreckless' , no jail, a minimal fine, 9 months of alchohol classes, and only a few short months after my disposition, I am able to drive with a restricted license. So in short, Sarkis knows the law, and he has excellent people skills, his confidence in the courtroom is unparallel and he is a person I would recommend to have in their defense when facing a legal battle.

After interviewing with several attorneys I finally met with Sarkis and instantly knew he was the one for our case. He shines with so much information, knowledge and confidence; Sark has always kept me informed and up to date. He really went above and beyond for us, overall I was pleased with the outcome of the case.
I would never recommend someone who I did not believe in myself and I am now working with Sarkis a second time.

Sark did all he could to help me deal with a difficult situation. He was honest with me about my case and kept me informed. I recommend him to anyone who needs a good, hardworking, honest lawyer who gets things done.
