Ashkan “Ash” Mehryari is a criminal defense attorney who quickly earned a reputation for being one of the best attorneys in DFW. In his first felony trial, after moving to recuse a district judge for being unfair, he obtained an acquittal for his client in trial with the subsequent judge. He continued to build on this reputation through the years. In 2020, he became of the few, and certainly one of the youngest, attorneys in Dallas to obtain an acquittal in a Capital Murder jury trial, as well as all lesser included offenses, where he served as lead counsel, despite an alleged confession and video evidence of the shooting. In the same year, Ash filed formal complaints against a trial court judge for her misbehavior towards him and his client. After two years, his complaints were formally sustained by the Texas Commission on Judicial Conduct, and in 2022, the judge was publicly sanctioned- an extremely rare action taken by the Commission.
Over the years, Ash earned countless awards; however, the greatest testament to his practice is the source of his clients. In addition to former clients, he receives numerous referrals from those who see him in practice personally, such as numerous judges, prosecutors, and other attorneys. The people who know lawyers and watch lawyers every day pick Ash. His clients have included and continue to regularly include executives, professional athletes, established musicians, doctors and other medical professionals, police officers, firefighters, as well as attorneys and their families in DFW and across the country.
He served as a board member of the Dallas Criminal Defense Attorneys’ Association for nearly six years and has recognition in the legal field with awards such “Best Lawyers” and “Top 40 Under 40” awards from D-Magazine and the National Trial Lawyers Association.
Ashkan received his undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering and worked as an engineer designing race cars and fighter jet engines. In 2007, he started law school at SMU, graduating ahead of his class in 2009. He began his law career working at the Dallas District Attorney’s office. Recognizing his passion to defend citizens and their rights, he quickly transitioned to a defense attorney. He joined a preeminent Fort Worth based firm and subsequently joined another DFW litigation boutique as an associate, making partner in just four years of practice. He left in 2019 to found his own practice.
His practice covers thousands of cases across Texas, including Dallas, Collin, Tarrant, Denton, Rockwall, Ellis and Kaufman. He is known for, and lectures at speaking engagements, regarding his engineering background, which allows him to provide a creative but also detail oriented, technical and precise defense to his clients.
