My son has two strikes, and was involved in a domestic violence case. We were VERY scared that he would be looking at a life sentence. Even with the recent changes to the 3-Strikes law , we wanted to be sure to get the best attorney that we could afford. We interviewed a couple of attorneys, and liked what Mr. Fakhimi had to say about the case. He didn't make any crazy promises but kept it 100 with us, which we appreciated. My son, who got to see things from the other side of the fence, told me that Mr. Fakhimi had a lot of respect with the other attorneys and DA. Long story short...My son was looking at 9-11 years, BUT with the help and professionalism of Mr. Fakhimi, my son was sentenced to 2 years!! AND Mr. Fakhimi worked with the DA so the for sentencing purposes my son got half-time!! Which RARELY happens!! I cant thank Mr. Fahhimi enough! I don't usually write reviews but THIS miracle had to be shared!!!

I’m writing this review for attorney Fakhimi and Associates’, anyone out there looking for a legal team worth more than money can buy then this is the right team for you. Professional, experienced, knowledgeable, the best legal team money can buy. I was facing a very long time due to my criminal history, the charges against me sales, transportation and truth of the matter scared to death for the first time what my outcome would be. The best deal I was able to get without Mr. Fakhimis professional team was 12 years. I walked out of the court room with tears running down my face as Mr. Fakhimi got me probation and a 30 day program. If you are facing time and need a professional team to get you the best possible outcome then this is the right team for you.
Mr. Fakhimi thanks so much for all your help, I am forever grateful for you and your team for working with me and treating me like I was your priority. You’re a wonderful attorney fair and honest; there should be more attorneys like you. I would recommend anyone to you as I know they will be very well taken care of by you and your team. May life be kind to you and may you prosper in all your future endeavors.

I highly recommend Mr. Fakhimi to anyone who is looking to find the best professional representation you can get.
I hired Mr. Fakhimi to represent my son on a drug related charge. Mr Fakhimi from our initial consultation was extremely knowledgeable, caring and compassionate regarding my sons case.
Mr. Fakhimi throughout the entire ordeal fought vigorously and aggressively to achieve a favorable outcome for my son through utilizing his vast experience, knowledge and pure determination by working the Courts, DA,s etc.,
My son and I will forever be eternally grateful to Mr. Fakhimi for everything he did in this case and the miraculous result he achieved through his vigorous defense.
In my opinion Houman Fakhimi is not one of the best Criminal Defense Attorney's he is "THE BEST"

In my life, I'm not accustomed to needing the professional assistance of an attorney very often. However, the one time I did, I researched and choose carefully. I didnt make a mistake, Mr Fakhimi went far beyond my expectations. You wont regret it, He is a Superior Attorney that knows every angle of the Law and treats his clients like family.

Hired mr fakhimi like 3yrs ago thru my wife who found him online and read a good review ... i was upset sitting in county jail at the time for her not choosing my familys choice of lawyers...Any how i was fighting an attempted muder; add charged with assault with a firearm and producing great bodily injury(gbi) due to the seriousness of my case and me being stressed out of my mind i didnt trust anybody with my future especially a lawyer ..so as i continued with my case mr fakhimi was on point hireing private investigators and being helpful when my cash got low and excepting my collect calls before courts and after to keep me updated sticking every time to his word. so along the trail he discovered positive evidence that gave me an edge on my case that the district attorney instantly gave me an offer a ex criminal couldnt refuse but still mr fakhimi didnt budge and told me not to sign that he seen flaws in the states alleged evidence against me and that he could do better .. i was seriously shocked and told him there offer of 5 years with a strike was along time but it sounded better than the 15 yrs to life they were talking about.. he told me that the choice was mine but to trust him.... so the results were great after One more court date and mr fakhimi held a high respect with my loved ones he got everything dismissed and we setteled on a simple felon possesion of firearm 2 yr sentence. With half time included saved my life and for that teason i have to leave this message

This guy is the most honest, most caring lawyer that I have known. He listened to my problems attentively without any judgment, came up with a solution, worked out a payment plan for me that works in my budget and has been aggressively representing me. He is a gem and I recommend him to every one.

I highly recommended Mr. Fakhimi for those who are desperate to find one of the best affordable attorney in CA , who is very caring and responsible and turning an impossible case into a possible one. Before Mr. Fakhimi I had anther attorney working on my case for 9 sessions and she was not being able to do anything for me. All she did was asking for more money. I was lucky to find Mr. Fakhimi and he dismissed my case in 3 session with 1/3 of the price that the other attorney was asking for. If you looking for some one who understand your case and is compassionate , I highly recommend Houman Fakhimi. He is one of the best.

I had a great experience with Houman Fakhimi. He was very thorough on sticking up for employee rights and took on a huge company. In return, I got my compensation within time and was able to prove to the particular company that they had no reason to violate my rights. Thanks again for all of your efforts! Reginald

I have been using Houman Fakhimi services for the past 15 years and I would highly recommend him to anyone that needs any legal service(s). Houman is highly knowledgeable, trustworthy, and a very dedicated attorney. His integrity and honesty has provided me with admiration towards his work. I’m fully satisfied with Houman Fakhimi for he is a person with proper work ethics and dedication.
Posted by Camille, a Criminal Defense client, Flag
I have been in need, on numerous occasions, of legal advice. Every time that I have asked Houman to help me I could not have asked for better advice, and furthermore, always received it on a very timely basis. Houman is also very personable and takes his clients' needs/situations very seriously. He is an expert and I will continue to utilize his services as legal needs arise. I highly recommend Houman to anyone in need of a fantastic attorney!

I found Fakhimi Assoc. thru lawyers.com I believe. Called, and gave them some high level details. They said if they didn't call back in 24 hrs, it meant they decided not to take the case. They called back in 20 minutes. So, 4-5 months later, 2 office visits, some phone cons and texts, and I received a satisfactory conclusion. If I had any criticism, it would be that Houman should make a point of meeting his clients, at least to see the face he is representing. Honestly, when a settlement was reached, I felt like the interest had shifted more to his, than mine. I did refer him to a friend, who asked if he was doing a good job.

Mr. Fakhimi has been representing our firm for over one year now. He is extremely knowledgable, has a logical sense and extremely ethical and honest. His firm provides many services in one location so we can only deal with one firm. His fees are reasonable and very conscious about our budget. I highly recommend him for all legal matters.

Mr. Fakhimi represented my friend in an employment/labor law dispute. As a lawyer myself, I appreciated his professionalism and honesty during his representation. He consistently provided my friend with all strategies and legal consequences. Most importantly he made sure to make himself available to answer any questions or take care of any grievances. I highly recommend Mr. Fakhimi for all employment/labor law disputes, as his experience makes him a valuable lawyer in our profession.

We hired Mr.Fakhimi to represent my friend who had been accused of a high profile crime with 3 years. His non-immigrant status made everything difficult. We were expecting him to get deal with 6 months under the best case scenario; however, in the preliminary hearing, the judge decided to drop the case and ordered to release him due to fact that Mr. Fakhimi did such a great job on the court. There is no doubt that it's a significant success for him. Nobody would expect my friend to be free after all. He is free now! I and my friend appreciate his professionalism and service. He is a knowledgeable attorney. He never lied to make us feel comfortable, always told us what the possibilities were. The last, but most important point is that he is not greedy at all. He could have asked more money, but he did not even bring it up. If you're looking for an attorney who is reliable and can save your life, you should go to him. You never regret.

My grandson got into trouble while visiting in another state and was taken to jail in that state. The crime he committed was so serious that it required a good defense lawyer. As his family, we immediately searched the internet for an attorney. After researching several, we chose Mr. Houman Fakhimi. Soon after we met in person, and was convinced we had made the right decision in hiring Mr. Fakhimi for our grandson's case. During the course of 9 months while my grandson was incarcerated, as we chose not to bail him out, there were times we questioned Mr. Fakhimi's actions, but in the end he made all the right decisions regarding the case. The outcome was better than we could have expected. If after a year and a half there is no probation violation, the strikes will be reduced to misdemeanors. At the end of the 5-year probation period, if there is no violations and all restitutions paid, his record will be expunged.
I would recommend Mr.Fakhimi if you need a good defense lawyer, and I am a person who is not easily convinced.

Houman is an excellent lawyer and has always been available to answer questions and advise me on legal issues. I recently hired his firm to represent me on a very sensitive case, and we won with flying colors - they really worked the courts, DAs, etc. - highly recommended!

Mr fakhimi was referred to me by a good friend of mine. I sat down with few lawyers and I felt that Mr fakhimi was the best for my case.. I was being charged with several drug related charges; I was under investigation for 45 day by irvine p.d. D.A was trying to charge me w/ 10felonys and 4yrs max sentence or 1yr& 3month in county. After fighting my case for several months I took the best deal anyone could get, 60 day sentence (only did 30 days)and 3yrs probation and after 1yr my probation case would get reviewed and my felony counts were going to be dropped to mistameter. I would refer mr fakhimi to anyone that would need an attorney..

Mr. Fakhimi and his associates handled a criminal defense case for me. At all times, they were honest with me and very responsive to my needs. They were all very knowledgeable and keep me informed at all times during my case. I have recommended Mr. Fakhimi to others who have found themselves with legal issues.
Posted by Robert, a Criminal Defense client, Flag
What a ride the past few weeks. If I hadn't been there to see for myself, I'm not sure I would have believed the outcome. If it had not been Houmans expertise and professionalism we never would have seen the sentence reduced from 30+yrs to 2.5. Our family greatly appreciates all you have done.
