Parisa Houshmandpour is a defense attorney in Raleigh, North Carolina.   She graduated with honors from University of North Carolina at Greensboro, majoring in Criminology and minoring in Anthropology. She then went on to earn her Juris Doctor from Elon University School of Law.

Ms. Houshmandpour's training began when she interned at the District Attorney's office in Guilford County, giving her valuable insight into the strengths and weaknesses of prosecution cases. This inside experience gives her an advantage in assessing the prosecution's case against her clients.  Working at Roberts Law Group and the Coolidge Law Firm, gave her tremendous amount of experience and knowlege in defending the accused.  

Houshmandpour feels that her true calling is defending the accused. She is keenly aware that there are two sides in every case and spends time carefully listening and understanding her client's situation. She works zealously to protect her client's constitutional rights and, if retained early in the process, she will represent her client in dealing with the investigators, the arrest process, the preliminary hearing, and obtaining a bond. She carefully reviews the charges and facts, and analyzes potential constitutional violations. She evaluates the prosecution's burden, defenses, and potential sentencing issues. Her work ethic, compassion and devotion is recognized and appreciated by clients and colleagues alike.

Case Dismissed
Parisa was very professional! She advised me on how to be proactive for a case against me and because of her strategic legal skills and professionalism she was able to get my charge dismissed with no court fees or volunteer work.

Awesome!!!
This is a wonderful law group and Parisha is one of the GREATEST! She will definitely fight hard for you in the court room and she believes in making sure justice is handed down .. decently and according to the law. I hate that I will have to opt out of having her represent me in this matter due to circumstances out of our control. So happy for even just the consult and words of sympathy and understanding. But if I ever need an AWESOME attorney in the future (God forbid unless it’s something minor) or if I have to give a referral.... Ms. Parthia and her colleagues will be 1st on my list. Blessings to this office who fights for justice!!!

Amazing!!!
I just want to say Ms. Parisa rocks! I worked with Parisa Houshmandpour throughout my whole case in 2016. I had a multitude of charges where I was potentially facing a mandatory minimum of 2 years. She worked closely with me through the whole process and she was very passionate about getting me the best results. I made a last minute decision to take a few of my charges to trial & gave her about a 20-30 minutes notice that’s what I wanted to do. With no time to truly prepare, she went in there very confident & got my charges dismissed with no effort. She did that so easily and with those charges dismissed, the mandatory minimum was released and I was able to get off with only probation. I would highly recommend Capital Law Firm for your DUI cases, she is AMAZING!!!!

Outstanding
The outcome of my case was way better than I could have hoped for. Went to court the first time for me to see what she could do and the second time got me a better outcome than I was expecting. Have to complete some stuff for the case to be completed and she explained to me exactly what I need to do. 100% recommend!

Parisa was and excellent lawyer and did exactly what she said she was going to do. She took care off two cases for me at one court date. I would definitely recommend her to represent anyone that I know.

Outstanding and Knowledgeable
I hired Ms. Houshmandpour for a case that haunted me and charges that were laid on me unjustly. I can't really explain in words how professional she was. The way she listened to every aspect of the case, the way she explained my rights and my options, the way she made me feel at ease and confident that she was going to fight for my justice. Guess what, she did just that. She really knows the ropes and she executed the trial in an outstanding professionalism and confidence. I feel compelled to write this review because that's the least that I can do to show my appreciation. Thank you ma'am from the bottom of my heart.
