Accepting New Clients, Call for a Consultation

After graduating from law school in 2007, A.Z. spent a brief period of time in private practice before accepting a position as an Assistant Public Defender in Knox County, Tennessee. As an Assistant Public Defender, he worked in each of the four criminal divisions of Sessions Court and all three divisions of Criminal Court. During this time, A.Z. represented clients charged with everything from Misdemeanors like Public Intoxication to Felonies such as Theft, Assault, and various drug offenses.


In his last three years of service as an Assistant Public Defender, A.Z. was assigned to the “DUI Division” where he successfully defended hundreds of clients charged with Driving Under the Influence and other related offenses. A.Z.’s success in that capacity was a major reason the partners of Oberman & Rice invited him to join their team.


A.Z. joined Oberman & Rice in 2014 and became Partner in 2017, where he continues to focus his practice on those accused of Driving Under the Influence (DUI) as well as other driving, alcohol, and drug-related crimes. He also defends those accused of other criminal and traffic offenses, as well as helping clients expunge their criminal record. He is proud to share the firm’s focus on providing exceptional service to its clients through legal, legislative, and scientific research.


A.Z. is a member of the American Bar Association, Knoxville Bar Association, and National College of D.U.I. Defense (where he is the State Delegate for Tennessee). He has also served on the Executive Board of CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) for Children – an organization aimed at giving neglected children in Knox County a voice in court and helping their families develop parenting plans to form a stronger and healthier family bond.

A Lawyer who will go the extra mile
My family hired AZ in June of 2023 and every day since then he has gone above and beyond to make sure that I understood every aspect of my case and the legal proceedings. He has never missed a phone call or an email that I have sent and always answers questions. He is super personable , friendly and above all else he gets the job done. AZ has always been transparent with me during my case which is why I am glad I chose him to represent me. He understands the law and he understands people too. If you need someone to help you navigate the legal system and to represent you in a way you feel secure and confident he is the guy for you . His office is also super cool and he always gives me water or coffee when we meet which is a huge plus because who doesn’t love a refreshing drink when doing business? It was a genuine pleasure working with this man.

Wouldn’t recommend anyone other than AZ.
AZ is extremely knowledgeable and very easy to work with. He was able to help vastly during an unfortunate situation. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing expert legal advice.

Scared, worried parent? Call AZ
Our son was charged with a DUI because he was asleep in a car after drinking. Terrifying to find out your child has been arrested. AZ met with us quickly, he set realistic expectations and helped us understand the legal consequences. He and his office kept us well informed and were always available by phone 7 days a week. He cost a lot of money but is worth every penny when your child’s future is on the line. I can’t recommend him highly enough!

Hard working!
Arrin was very professional and attentive. He helped me get into the court room and my license back. He is quick to reply with any emails and or phone calls. If he's at court or with a client and cannot take your call at that time. He will call back ASAP! He explained every step he was taking in words I would understand and take the time to get into detail about questions or concerns I may have had. All in all, he's a very great lawyer, and very prepared when it comes to fighting for you. I would recommend his services to my family and friends. I would also like to add he's a real down to earth guy and was there when I needed him most. 10/10

Exceeded expectations
I ran in to a legal matter in where I was accused of a shoplift that was genuinely a mere accident on my end; not intentional. I was facing a potential misdemeanor theft charge. I have a spotless record and have never had a run in with the law; not even a mere traffic violation. I wasn’t about to allow injustice in this, so I sought out the best attorney I could find to address this issue. Upon meeting with AZ, he remained professional, understanding and confident that we could get a favorable outcome with this whole ordeal. While no attorney can make a promise of a specific outcome, there was something about his knowledge, skill set and confidence that I knew I could trust. Needless to say, my case ended up with a highly favorable outcome - beyond what I would have expected, and will have no detrimental outcome in my record at all. I highly recommend AZ for your matters!

No One can compare
AZ represented my daughter on a charge was able to get it removed and expunged. I also had a charge and AZ came to the rescue during a bad time in my life after my fathers death. He was exceptionally helpful in getting court dates postponed as I was dealing with my Dads Death. He was able to get my charged expunged as well. I don’t know how I would of managed without the help and guidance from AZ! He definitely is worth any amount of money to have him on your side. Make an appointment to see him!!

Personable and Efficient
AZ provided an excellent service and was able to achieve the best possible results for my case. He was personable and very friendly while also maintaining a professional attitude. I would recommend his services, and the overall services of Oberman and Rice to anyone in need of DUI or DWI assistance and/or legal defense.

Couldn't Be Happier
Throughout my life I have never had a need for a lawyer. Arrin Zadeh was recommended by a friend and I'm thankful he did. Arrin handled everything while keeping me up to date. I won't say the experience was enjoyable, but I have no doubt Arrin got me the very best result possible and I felt at ease throughout the process.

Nicest most diligent lawyer you’ll meet
AZ was incredibly thorough when we met. He reviewed all details so that there was no confusion on the prospects for success or failure. He made sure that I received the best possible outcome and did not make any judgements about the charges filed against me. He was friendly and supportive the entire time I dealt with him.

A Very Professional Group
I would highly recommend Arrin Zadeh and His staff. The Man told me what He could do and is a Man of his Word and got My charges dismissed. All of His staff all knew my name and treated Me with the respect. I was not proud of what had happened to me and when everything was said and done I could walk a little taller, with dignity, knowing that I have some new friends that believed in me. PGC

PROFESSIONAL, CARING, AND THE BEST!!
I had such bad luck before my birthday, on my way to work I had an emergency bathroom run and ended speeding, just so happens I got pulled over. With a Class A CDL and security clearance I knew I was doomed but Arrin relieved my stress the first meeting I had with him! He told me to leave my stress behind me. My case ended being dismissed which I had faith in him the whole time! Thank you so much Arrin! You’re a life saver! I would definitely recommend him to anyone with legal troubles!

Very Attentive, Responsive, Effective
Son made some bad decisions, and was arrested. Mr. Zadeh moved quickly to gather information and have the case dismissed within a few days. He went out of his way to accommodate our schedules. He was a blessing to a mom many hours away. I highly recommend him.

Excellent Attorney & Firm / Veteran Approved
Contacted "A.Z." Zadeh to assist with a Tennessee Multiple Offense Traffic Ticket that I received in the Knoxville area. Words can not express how grateful I am for "A.Z." Simply an amazing attorney! "A.Z." was extremely kind, patient, understanding listened to me about my situation, assessed a plan on the spot. Communication between us was fantastic via phone & E-mail. Extremely Prompt with my case followed with AWESOME followup from both A.Z and Denielle, (they make a great team). Most of all what AZ stated he could do, HE DID! He is a man of his word! Totally worth the cost! Oberman & Rice made the right decision bringing AZ on board. I am very GRATEFUL for AZ! A True Professional! Thanks You again AZ & Denille.

Professional Lawyer, Great Communication
AZ was easy to contact and knowledgeable about the laws and potential liabilities of my specific case. Within minutes I felt very comfortable with AZ and his confident approach to resolving my legal problem. In short order my case was resolved successfully and much to my satisfaction. I would recommend his services.

A True Professional
Our son received a D.U.I. while attending college and we were located 2 1/2 hours from Knoxville. Through on-line searches we contacted a few reputable law firms in the area and after interviewing them all, we decided to hire the Oberman & Rice Law Firm. They were more expensive than the others, but we felt like they were truly more professional and worth the extra money. A.Z. was a blessing to our family. He took the time to meet with our son, in person, and he scheduled conference calls with us so that we were all on the same page. Ultimately, A.Z. negotiated a plea bargain with the D.A. that was better than we ever expected. We couldn't have been any happier with the results. A.Z. was worth every penny that we spent.

Gift from God
When I was first in need of a lawyer and came across AZ’s law firm, I was impressed by the immediate response - I contacted the firm on a Sunday and immediately received a phone call to meet with AZ the next day. That too during holiday season! During our meeting, he provided a safe and comfortable environment for me to discuss my case. He listened to and understood my situation in its entirety. Throughout the 7 months I worked with AZ , he was consistently thorough in his work. He explained each aspect of my case with great detail and transparency. I could rely on AZ to respond to my emails immediately. I truly felt AZ cared about me not just as a client, but also as a person. He also accommodated my academic and personal responsibilities by ensuring that I would not have to be present in court. His efforts and concern were proven when my case had a favorable outcome, even though the odds seemed heavily stacked against me! I am glad to have worked with AZ, and would highly recommend him.

Excellent attorney/very professional staff and team.
This was my daughters first and hopefully last DUI case. We cannot thank AZ enough for handling her case with the utmost care and professionalism. He is very knowledgeable of all DUI laws and explained the process she would be going through in order to achieve the best outcome for her. She was living in Tennessee and we were in another state so that in itself was unsettling and scary for us. He did an outstanding job for us and I would highly recommend AZ should you need an attorney for your DUI case/charges.
