Timely, knowledgable, logical, caring. These are some of the words that come to mind when I think of Mr. Ghassemkhani. He couldn't have done a better job handling my case, giving me advice, and helping me sleep at night. I was unfairly charged for what was not a criminal matter, and Mr. Ghassemkhani was on my side defending me every step of the way. I cannot thank him enough.
I was referred to Dod by another attorney, I took a chance on him, and now know is was the right decision. He has a keen skill set, understands the DUI process, and he worked diligently to provide me the best legal service. Dod is ethical and fair and I'm proud to call him my lawyer.
I hired Dod back in July on a Marijuana DUI. I was arrested coming back from TJ at the border. I was completely disrespected by the Border Patrol and they were rude. They kept on asking me if i had been drinking and i said i only had a few beers. I did a breath test and it was only a .04. They then kept on yelling at me asking if i had been using drugs. They found a little marijuana in my car. I did smoke earlier that day but not prior to driving.
From the moment i talked to Dod i felt at ease. Completely professional, respectful, and kept me updated every step of the way. He told me he cant promise anything but will fight aggressively to get my case dismissed.
The first step was the DMV hearing- WIN
The second step was my criminal case- after a few continuances CASE DISMISSED!!
I really cant thank Dod enough. Not only is he my attorney but he is now basically my friend. I text him all the time and he is always on top of everything. I have never been in need of an attorney and this was the first and hopefully the last time, but i have to say- THANKS DOD, YOU SAVED MY JOB!!
I highly recommend Mehrdad Ghassemkhani. I hired him to represent me for my DUI. I was terrified of the whole process as I have never been in trouble for more than a speeding ticket. Dod walked me through the whole process and kept me reassured and confident. My breathalyzer was .25 and my BAC was .17 so I was really afraid of a very stiff punishment. Dod was able to get me a 3 month first conviction program with 1 MADD class and NO work service. He saved me so much time and made this awful experience so much more comfortable for me. I highly recommend him to everyone!
I had an unexpected reaction to an OTC herbal sleep remedy purchased at a smoke shop (not spice) which induced a psychotic episode that included me jumping from rooftop to rooftop in my neighborhood naked yelling at my neighbors and threatening to kill people. I was facing multiple felony charges related to the incident, fines, and possible jail time. Mehrdad used my incident free military service record and his legal acumen to get the felonies dropped within 48 hours and convinced the DA to drop all charges as long as there were no illicit substances in my blood test. The case is still pending, however, because I had not ingested any illegal substances, I know it is just a matter of time before the whole matter is dismissed and I can put this unfortunate episode behind me. Mehrdad has been on top of the case the entire time and kept me informed throughout. Without his help my career and my future would have been in jeopardy. He is an expert when it comes to this type of case, and I don't think any other lawyer would have been able to achieve the results he did.
Excellent lawyer that helped immensely. Always was available to discuss details of case and responded immediately to any inquiries. Really kept us informed at every turn. Definitely would recommend Mr. Ghassemkhani to represent anyone. Very pleased with his handling of the case.
I was pulled over by SDPD about a month ago. My blood alcohol level was over the legal limit. I did a lot of research and talked to 12 DUI attorneys before I made my decision. What stood out with Mr. Ghassemkhani is his willingness to go to bat and fight for his clients. The other attorneys I talked to from the moment I walked into their office they were telling me I should take a deal of a Wet Reckless. This is without even seeing the police reports. Mr. Ghassemkhani put me at ease, made me feel like my life is not over, and continuously gave me updates on my case. He emails, texts, or calls back right away. I didn't know in a DUI we have to deal with the DMV and the criminal courts. The other attorneys told me I would lose the DMV part of it. Mr. Ghassemkhani won the DMV hearing so I don't have a license suspension for the time being. My criminal case is still pending and Mr. Ghassemkhani tells me I should not take any plea bargain and we should fight the case and go to trial. It is reassuring to know my attorney is ready to go to bat for me and go to jury trial. I guess there is a reason why he has won so many cases and has been on tv so many times. MOST DEFINITELY if you have been arrested for anything, don't waste your time, go with the BEST!! Thanks Mr. Ghassemkhani
Dod is great. Very knowledgable and I felt he genuinely cared about my situation. I highly recommend him for help especially if you are tight on your finances.
M Dod. made a very complicated situation simple he made my life easier because I' am a student and he helped me resolve my case in San Diego he was aggressive and knowledgeable and he is assisting me with getting my case expunged I could not ask for anything more from him.
I hired Mr. Ghassemkhani back in July and he did a fantastic job on getting me what i needed in the case. got it dropped tremendously. He has great credentials when it comes to his experience in cases, and also in he courtroom. definently recommend him for everything.
