I was very impressed with the proffesionalism and promptness with how my case was handled from start to finish. I would highly reccomend this lawyer.
I got my 3rd Dui a few months ago. My first was one 9 years ago, then i got one just a few years ago so this was my 3rd time. I was at a bar in Mission Valley. I thought i was okay to drive. I ran a stop sign and side swiped a car. I knew my license was suspended and i had been drinking so i started to drive away. I dont know what i was thinking. Clearly i wasnt thinking. Needless to say i was pulled over about a half a mile away and taken to jail. Luckily the lady in the car had minor soreness and was not taken to the hospital.
At 29 years old, facing my 3rd DUI and jail time i felt i deserved to go to jail. I started talking to attorneys. I submitted an online request and Mr. Ghassemkhani called me at 10pm at night. About 5 minutes after i submitted the request. He was on the phone with me for over 1 hour putting me at ease. I told him i would call him the following day.
The following day i got about 3 more calls from attorneys. The first one didnt even care about my situation and only cared about getting me to his office.
The second one didnt even go over my case and gave me a price of $5,000 not knowing anything about my case.
The other attorney spent a little more time with me but didnt seemed to concerned about me.
The total time I spent with these 3 attorneys was less than what Mr. Ghassemkhani spent with me. Mind you this was at 10pm at night. I decided to call him back and go see him. Since I could not drive, he came and met me at a Starbucks next to my apartment.
He was courteous, respectful, caring, and told me he would guide me through this horrible process. He told me i was looking at mandatory jail time but would work out an ankle monitor hopefully. I decided to put my life in his hands.
From the time I hired him, he remained the same guy i talked on the phone and met at that Starbucks. Complete professional and a pioneer in his field. He put me on a plan of AA classes and a SCRAM ankle bracelet. He told me this would get us the best possible outcome. He always text me to see how i was doing.
When it was all said and done, he worked out a deal of 150 days on a ankle bracelet instead of jail time. I have made many stupid decisions my life. This was by far the BEST decision ever.
As i write this i still have an ankle monitor on, but I know i will never be in trouble again. I want to THANK Mr. Ghassemkhani for being sent to me from the heavens. If you want an attorney that truly cares about who you are as a person, then i HIGHLY HIGHLY recomend him.
Sorry for the long review but I hope this helps anyone ever in desperate need of a true professional.
Very straight foreword and to the point which i like. Is always willing to answer any legal related question truthfully. Very knowledgable about dui's and will fight for you.
Mr. G represented me in my DUI case. He was very knowledgeable and efficient. I was looking at jail time and a felony. Mr. G fought the case and at prelim hearing my case was reduced to a misdemeanor. I can't thank him enough. I highly recommend this attorney!!!!!
I was very pleased with how stress free the situation was and how professional he was. Also, I was happy with the out come of the case.
I got arrested for a DUI in October and was scared and nervous about what was going to happen after my day jail. I contacted Mr. Ghassemkhani a couple days later and I am so glad I did. He was a great advocate to have. I am not good at writing but did want to express how greatful I am. I would recommend him to anybody who wants a great lawyer.
Words cant describe how I feel. I have never been in trouble. Never even had a speeding ticket but I was arrested for DUI. My blood alcohol level was a .22. I was extremely intoxicated. Dod walked me through the entire process. Very easy to contact, and very reassuring when I would talk to him. Instead of a 9 month program he got the DA to agree to a 3 month program. He also saved my some community service days. I cant thank Dod enough.
When i picked up my DUI i thought my life was over. This was my 2nd DUI and i was looking at mandatory jail time. I did a lot of research and spoke to a lot of attorneys. I put my faith and my trust in Dod. He never sugar coated anything. He never promised me anything. He just said he will aggressively fight for me. He is so easy to get in contact with. I had his cell phone and i sent him text all the time and he would respond 100% of the time within 10 minutes. When I called him he would put everything else to the side and treat me like I was his only case.
I truly felt like he cared for me and my situation. I did not ever feel like he was jut trying to drag me along. Because I had a .19 blood alcohol level and a prior i knew i was screwed.
He worked out a deal where i did not do any jail time and had to wear an ankle monitor for 4 days. He also got reduced public work and a few hundred dollars off my fines.
I cant say THANK YOU enough to Dod. I HOPE i will never need Dod's services again, but i would reccomend him to anyone charged with a DUI or any criminal crime.

I would highly recommend Mehrdad Ghassemkhani if you are looking for a trustworthy lawyer. He answered any questions I had and responded back very fast via email and telephone. Was a pleasure to work with and am happy with my results after court! Thank you again!!
