Someone in my immediate family was facing very serious criminal charges. We had "interviewed" at least half a dozen of attorneys, and actually hired two to help us assist in the criminal manner. The first attorney just turned out to be the biggest crook, the second one promised the world, but later it became apparent that she was attempting to emulate her mentor, but had chosen the wrong profession. Our situation was getting very desperate with each passing day. Finally someone had recommended Alaleh. From the very first meeting with her, it became apparent that this woman was born to do this type of work. She was very professional, yet honest and it was very evident that she was so very astute and intelligent. Alaheh "inherited" a very bad case (not only because of sloppy work of two previous attorneys, but because her new client had extensive criminal history. This woman is a G-d send!! Real miracle worker!!! Throughout the years, I had to work and deal with a lot of attorneys, yet I have NEVER met someone who is so very superb at their job. There has not been a time when she did not return a phone call, or did not respond to your e-mail. She is truly a TOP NOTCH professional who made such an incredible difference in our lives!! If it had not been for Alaleh's exceptional skills, knowledge and reputation, our family member would have been deported. But instead, Alalah had afforded us a second chance in life. If you EVER need someone to handle your criminal matter, your search is over. You will NEVER find anyone that even comes close to Alaleh!!!

Alaleh is probably the best lawyer I've come across.
I came to her with high expectations and she fulfilled every one of them. She genuinely enjoys what she does which is probably why she is such a good lawyer. She treats every case on an individual basis and puts a lot of thought and communication into it.
I would recommend anyone to her whose looking for legal advice.

The fact that she is an amazing lawyer isn't even the best part about her. Alaleh Kamran is an amazing woman with a bright and very upbeat personality that will undoubtedly make you feel safe and secure with her representing your legal endeavors. She CARES. She will fight for you, and she will protect you. At the end of it all, you will have made a friend instead of just an attorney. The one and only time in my whole life that I got into trouble with the law was a few weeks after I turned 18 years old for shop-lifting a movie. I had/have hopes and dreams of going to college and graduate school, and I can say that those are still possible, because she managed to turn the charge of misdemeanor petty theft into an infraction resulting in my permanent record staying clean. I walked into her office feeling sorry for myself not expecting anyone to take pity on me, and then once she familiarized herself with my case, she immediately and very sincerely empathized with me. She knew I was just a young kid that made an impulsive and momentary error in judgment. I still have a future because of her.

Mrs. Kamran and her team are second to none. She and her crew are hardworking and very trustworthy. Anyone represented by her can consider themselves in good hands.

Alaleh Kamran is known as being knowledgeable, attentive, compassionate about every case she approaches. For my fathers case she went above and beyond our expectations and did whatever was possible to help his case. As a client we were very informed in every action that was taken place. She was very positive and had an amazing sense of humor every time she approached my father. Highly recommended attorney.

At the lowest point of my life, something even lower took me to the pits of my existence. I attempted to take my own life and instead woke up in a jail cell not knowing what in the world is going on. Not only I was alive, I had bought myself a drug charge, DUI, and a 45-day jail time. Some would say that I was lucky, but all I wanted was to end it all. In a daze, I searched for someone to represent me. But who in the world would understand the despair, misery, and the desperation that took me to that point of my life? 2 days out of jail and I was bombarded with over a hundred “Jail Mailers", cards, CD’s, and they all sounded wonderful. I made a few phone calls and no one seemed to understand the pain that I had to endure to drive myself to suicide. I even got laughs and chuckles. With a wrecked car still at the impound, a job in jeopardy,parents with broken hearts, life ruined, I searched for representation. By the recommendation of my mother, we walked into Alaleh Kamran’s office in Encino. Going up the elevator, I thought to myself that this cannot be the person representing me. This is the same exact building that I had been to so many times with the person whom I almost took my life for. So many memories rushed over me. Pain, anger, despair, and a thousand and one unanswered questions. All I was thinking is that I still have some unfinished business to take care of and as soon as I feel a little bit better, I will finish the job I started last week. I could still smell him in the lobby and the elevator and I couldn’t even bare to tell my mother why even the building was making me cry. As I was waiting to see Ms. Kamran, her Associate, Dawn Dunbar greeted me. We walked over to the conference room and I was thinking that “This place is not for me and why am I talking to someone that is not even my attorney and why is this Kamran lady not even here”? A few minutes later, Ms. Kamran walked into the conference room and all I was thinking is that “Who are you people? None of you will ever know the pain. Who in the world will ever be able to tell my life better than me to the judge or the jury that I will most likely be facing soon”? In the space of ten minutes, I see Ms. Kamran in tears and genuine empathy with me. Understanding why I still had my car at the impound, when all the other attorneys that I had spoken to advised me to take it out so I don’t pay an arm and a leg in fees. I knew there was evidentiary value in that when at least five other lawyers said that it doesn’t matter. My suicide letters, the drugs, the bowl, the roll of paper towels, the seat that was still down, the key that was still in my purse, everything that proved my innocence were all still there. When I saw her in tears about my story, I knew that she is the one that will represent me. Even though I was ready to sign my contract and retainer with her, she still asked me to take a day and sleep on it, knowing that I had hundreds of others that I could have easily went with. I came home and made up my mind that no matter what the result, at least I want someone that has a heart and can appreciate the misery of my life. For the small amount of fee that she asked for, I feel like she gave me a VIP treatment. Even respecting my so-called intelligence, to allow me to speak directly with the District Attorney of my case to explain my desperate situation to. Maybe I have not been around any criminals or have never been ran through the criminal justice system, but I still think that it is not the run of the mill daily practice for the “criminal” to sit in an office facing his/her DA, telling them their life story. But she made that happen. Numerous times she reminded me that I am here for a reason and I need to believe that. She believed in me when I did not. And through it all she stood by me. Slowly but surely, not only being my attorney, she became my guardian angel and a true friend.

She explained things in details for me and was very accurate on her advises.
she is very knowledgeable in her practice and is a very honest person.
I highly recommend her, she is my first choice if I need an attorney.

I was sent to Alaleh from my immigration lawyer. From the first time I met her she was right away helpful, honest and effective. No hidden weird fees, really reachable and when you're in trouble she's there for you... Let me just say you better have this woman on your side because she'll fight for you and get the job done. I will recommend her service to anyone who needs a good lawyer with no bs, straight to the point and affordable... I dealt with many lawyers before and she's definitely the only one I would ever recommend or take the time to write a review for.

Throughout my life I have have seen in action and met with my fair share of lawyers to say the least. Of which often times over promise and under deliver. Most just want to settle or drastically incline clients to take so called "deals". Clearly this is not the case with Alaleh Kamran. Over the years I have referred many clients NOT 1 complaint. We aptly call her "A.K." as she has been known to be trusted by her clients as well as feared by those that stand in her way. I have witnessed many days in court and countless people asking for her card on the way out. Weather it is for themselves or their loved ones.
Her professionalism is unparalleled. I have gone to court on my personal time just to watch her in action. Lets just say it is just something that must be seen for ones self. Words really cannot describe her experience and her amazing staff. She has a charm that is captivating to the court room. Her bark is just as vicious as her bite make no mistake. I have seen an officer sweat and turn yellow in a preliminary hearing under questioning in one matter, a plaintiff in another. One of which at a later date the officer even said "I think I still have your shoe/heel stuck within me." In the face of adversity is when she truly shines. Shes the type that works during her lunch as also I have seen time and time again. I have friends in the field/ some of which just out of law school that beg to intern for her. Weather or not it is a criminal matter or not I will still consult her first to find the appropriate council for the matter in which I seek. She will go to bat for you and not disappoint.

Alaleh kamran and her staff walked me through the most stressful time ever in my life last year and always exhibited such professionalism on every level. Her staff is completely on point and very accomadating. In court, Alaleh has such graceful confidence that only a great amount of experience and success can warrant. She is extremely resourceful and informed to get to the sollution of the case. I was under alot of stress from the moment of my arrest until my case was expunged 12 months later, and in addition probation was dropped after i successfully fulfilled all the requirements that alaleh fought to set up for me in court to have a successful resolve, and primarily to help me avoid serving real jail time. Witnessing her in court and watching her see a opportunity, and literally resoucing and referencing prior cases on the spot to convince the court was quite impressive and inspiring. She literally made it possible for me to leave the country for work on several occassions while i was on trial with two felonies with the judges permission, which was no easy task but she was determined to keep me on track in my career while i was dealing with the consequences of my arrest. Today i am expunged of my felonies on my record and probation is dismissed and it is absolutely a direct result of her focus and professionalism, and is something i am forever grateful for. I truly made the right decision in working with her and the process helped me re-focus my life. Her fee was completely reasonable and considering the amount of work she put into the case in court and out of court until its completion, it was priceless in the end. I highly recommend her to any one in any legal capacity. She came highly recommended to me based on her experience, her success rate and her overall determination and knowledge. I absolutely made a good friend in the process who i literally trusted with my life, and the outcome gave me a new perspective on how to live my life and i am extremely grateful to her and her staff. Thank you!!!!

Alaleh is thorough, reassuring and confident - three essential qualities you'd want in any attorney. I highly recommend her. She not only got me through the process but helped me see things in a new light.

Mrs. Kamran is a consummate professional. Not only the aforementioned, but she helped me in my hour of need. I know that Mrs. Kamran is always on the case, and has the gifted smarts and dedication to help all who ask. I am very thankful for Mrs. Kamran's service, and would advocate that any person who is fortunate enough to retain Mrs. Kamran has: "Justice on their side." She is truly professional, understanding, prepared, and genuine. I would definitely recommend Mrs. Kamran. Her astute knowledge, impeccable character and fearless determination make her unrivaled.

I had the honor to work with Alaleh and I have to say she is not only a fantastic attorney but she is also a wonderful human being. She handled my case with a great compassion, care and knowledge. She will fight for you regardless how tough your case is and she won't back down to anybody. I would strongly recommend her for anybody who is looking for an excellent attorney who actually treat her clients with respect and dignity.

I am a REAL client with a REAL situation. My fiancé was arrested for transporting 4 pounds of marijuana in his vehicle along with evidence that could not even attempt to take his case to trial. He was charged with two felony counts for possession of marijuana and distribution to sale marijuana. Alaleh Kamran took the case and even though we could not afford all of her fees she was willing to work something out with us. While awaiting for Alaleh at the preliminary hearing I was surprised to find out that she did not only know the judge but she also knew the prosecutor's boss. They negotiated a deal right then and there and my fiance received 4-5 months in jail with 40 days time served along with probation. This is really good due to the fact that he has had not a few but several prior felony convictions of drug possession charges. If you are looking for someone who really knows people in the criminal justice system, you should be contacting Alaleh Kamran. What I really like about Alaleh Kamran is that even though our financial situation was somewhat unstable she continued to make us feel as though our case was just as important as a client who paid thousands and thousands of dollars for a case. Thank you so much Alaleh!!!

I had her for an under age DUI, and she was able to drop the case to a much softer charge. Best thing about her, she is always available for her clients, even after your case is closed. The price is reasonable considering the professional service that you get.
