About me

Steven R. Vartazarian is a founding partner of The Vartazarian Law Firm in Sherman Oaks, California. Steve specializes in personal injury litigation and trial.


Steve takes each case personally and spends time getting to know his clients, their injuries and their case. Each case is then worked up using the latest technology, and with no stone left unturned. It is this type of dedication that is the hallmark of Steve's work ethic and consistent jury verdicts against "big insurance company law firms." Steve's law firm is very well recognized as a firm that gets top dollar settlements and verdicts. Steve also has a reputation among his peers as the lawyer that other lawyers refer their cases to when the insurance companies and defense attorneys choose to fight.


Steve recently won a rare favorable ruling on a California Wrongful Death and fraud claim that resulted in a 4 million dollar jury verict.  


Steve graduated cum laude from Oklahoma City University and cum laude from Thomas Jefferson School of Law.


Steve serves on the Board of the Encino Lawyers Association and is a member of California Attorney's Association of Los Angeles, Consumer Attorneys of California, American Board of Trial Advocates, Cowboy Lawyers Association, and the Armenian Bar Association.
