Afsoon was born and raised in south Nashville.  Her parents came from Iran to study in the United States in 1979 just before the revolution and never returned because of the national political turmoil. When she was 13 years old, she started working in the family’s dry cleaning business on Murfreesboro Road during the hot Nashville summers.  Most days, her father would leave home for work at 4 a.m. and return home for dinner after 6 p.m., always with a smile on his face.  Afsoon appreciated the reason for his long hours – to provide for his family. She was inspired by his strong will and tireless effort to live the American dream.  She learned the values of hard work from her father and grace and compassion from her mother.  Her parents were always helping people in the community.  She wanted to be like them.

TDOT Workman's Comp Case- Afsoon and Rocky fought and are still fighting for me
Been working for TDOT for 13 years. I’m a truck driver. It’s all I know. I’m a hard worker, I don’t go around just making work comp claims and trying to get something for nothing. I was at work when a gust of wind came in blew me sideways. A huge piece of equipment fell. I fell back and hit the rock and asphalt ground and was knocked unconscious. Nobody at my work called for EMS, I laid there for 15-20 minutes before anybody did anything. When I finally came to I had blood all over my face and was in so much pain and would you believe they put me in a state truck and drove me to a clinic instead of calling 911 to take me to the hospital! I crushed my ear drum and now have permanent nerve damage and hearing loss in my ear from hitting the ground so hard. My injuries triggered migraines. They get really bad, it broke all the bones in my face on my right side. I have permanent damage, and now have problems seeing out of my right eye. I was doing everything I could to try to heal up and get better as fast as possible but I was afraid that they were going to fire me or send me into early retirement because of my injuries. That’s when my wife and I called Rocky. From day one, dealing with work comp has been a nightmare. They fought us on every treatment and everything that I needed to function. Rocky was Afsoon were great knowledgeable and always kept me informed. The folks at Rocky Law Firm always knew me and all about my case. I didn’t feel like a number. Carmen is a bad to the bone. She and Afsoon fought those adjusters tooth and nail and are still fighting. I didn’t want to make a million dollars out of this, I just wanted to have my medical expenses taken care of. Rocky and his firm got me more than I expected and even though my case is done, they’re still helping me because I’m still having problems with work comp paying for the things they are supposed to pay. I recommend them to anybody who needs them for workcomp, car accidents, whatever. I’ve got no complaints.

I would highly recommend Afsoon. She's professional and gets the job done! She rocks!
I was injured working for a retail company. After many unsuccessful attempts to work with their insurance company, it was recommended to me by the Tennessee Board of Workers' Compensation to hire an attorney. Not knowing who to contact, I remember seeing many ads for Rocky Law Firm on television. I looked up online reviews for this firm and saw that they had an excellent reputation so I gave them a call. I called the office, they talked to me a little bit and told me I should come in and discuss my case with them. After meeting with an attorney, they said they'd be more than happy to take my case. After speaking with Carmen, the paralegal, she assured me that RML was going to take good care of me...and boy did they. After two and a half years working with Afsoon and her assistant, Carmen, I learned a lot of things about injuries, insurance companies and workers compensation. If it were not for Afsoon and Carmen, I would have not gotten the medical treatment I needed or the support they gave me during the process. Its amazing to me how insurance companies take advantage of the system so if you do not have the right attorney, you can get frustrated quickly and just give up. I never once thought of giving up because of the constant communication that I received from my attorney's admin, Carmen. She got to know me and explained everything that I needed to know. She fought for me through the whole process. And when I was frustrated and didn't understand, she always had the right answers. My attorney and Carmen made me feel like one of the family and that they really cared and were concerned that I got the best recovery possible for my injuries.
