  • Nima Taradji

    I endorse this lawyer. I have known Don for more than a decade and each time I am amazed at his intellect and problem solving capabilities. Don has the unique ability to find the winning argument each time for each case. During jury trials, I have seen Don relate to the jurors and bring them to his side every time. Don is one of the most capable attorneys I know.
