Practice areas

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.

Amazing legal representation!
Ash got a 15 year sentence offer of mine that the state would not budge on turned into a two year sentence.Astonishing considering I was offered 7.5 years to co operate against my co defendants. I have since reformed my life but I told Ash with all do respect I won’t snitch. He said ok,our visit ended.About 6 months into my Dallas County stay my dad came to visit me with tears in his eyes and said that Ash had gotten me a “2” 2 year sentence to TDC non agg.We we’re both floored and astonished. I was hoping to end up getting a 5 year sentence after sitting in Dallas county for a year. But Ash got me a 2,it still amazes me to this day and on top of that the price of his representation as low as you can get for free world representation on a dope case.Ash,I am 4ever grateful for u caring about my case. Don’t ever change,you saved my life.The End.Thats my testimony.GO ASH!!

Great attorney that actually works for you!
A family member got in some trouble with the law "mixed up with the wrong crowd" and I'm the only one he had. We hired one of about 50 attorney’s that sent flyers and letters after my nephew's arrest. After the first court date he was offered probation, No other option. With my nephew being on the deans list at a local college pursuing a career in information technology security we could not accept. The attorney insisted my nephew would end up in jail if we didn’t take the offer.. I was about to accept the fact that my nephew’s life could take a turn for the worst and reached out to friends and family for second options. My uncle had a DWI case that got dismissed using Mr, Mehryari and highly recommended him. The next day we made contact with Mr, Mehryari “On Sunday morning” via his cell phone and gave us a free consultation and general advice. 2 months later we are in court again and Mr, Mehryari pulls us to a small room to discuss the case details, after talking on and off for an hour with our attorney going back and forth he was able to get my nephew differed adjudication meaning once he completed 6 month’s probation due to video evidence it would be completely off his record. He has completed everything and has a spotless record.. We are forever grateful to Mr, Mehryari and his staff..

Dedicated and supportive.
Over the past several months, Ashkan Mehryari has worked diligently on my court case and has been supportive of me throughout the process; clarifying what actions need to be taken, as well as providing advice along the way of this harrowing experience. Mr. Mehryari is an understanding attorney, taking note of the circumstances at hand and how they may affect your life; for me as a single father, this is quite meaningful. Given this, he will work with you and do what he is able to obtain the best possible result for you, while lowering the stress associated with your legal experience. I am grateful for the services provided by Mr. Mehryari, and also completely satisfied with the results obtained on my court case. I highly recommend Mr. Mehryari and suggest that he is retained to anyone in need of a criminal defense attorney.

Good lawyer
He did a good job he knows his job

DWI/ Trial Case
My lawyer actually referred me to Ashkan for my case when it was time to go to trial. Ashkan did a great job of getting everything ready for my case to go to trial. He was very supportive and stayed in close contact to always let me know what was going on. I was found guilty of driving while intoxicated . I had choose punishment to be decided by the jury . Ashkan got me 0 days in jail and 0 fines . The county clerk said she had never seen this before . When I left the courthouse at the end of my trial. I was done . No probation, no fines, and no jail time . Ashkan did a great job! He got me the best possible outcome I could have had. I'd recommend him to anyone looking for a lawyer to take their case.

Ashkan gets results.
Once upon a time, I found myself in the unfortunate position of having been charged with public intoxication involving a vehicle. Needless to say, this was very bad for me, professionally, so I immediately retained a lawyer. With that lawyer, I was tangled up in a fight with the system for YEARS. YEARS went by with no resolution, and I ultimately found myself with a warrant out for my arrest. I decided it was time for a change, so I hired Ashkan Mehryari after hearing about the good work he had done for my friends. Within ONE MONTH of retaining Ashkan, my warrant was gone and MY PUBLIC INTOXICATION CHARGE WAS COMPLETELY DISMISSED. It was as simple as that. There are a lot of lawyers out there who say a lot of things in their advertisements, but I believe actions speak much louder than words. If you hire Ashkan Mehryari, he will work his tail off to achieve the best possible result for you.

Well Done Ash
I was recommended to Ash by a personal friend regarding a DWI. During our first conversation he said "the case is actually won before you ever go to court" which was clearly the right strategy. Having a strong judiciary network was key in negotiating very favorable terms and accelerating the process and I'm thankful that Ash was there to represent me. I'll be using M&A again and highly recommend him and his firm for any legal needs.

Hard Working
Ashkan is a dedicated and hard working attorney who has always helped me with legal issues. I always recommend him to my peers and colleagues.

There are smart lawyers and then there is Ashkan
Ashkan is a sharp, hardworking lawyer. More than that, however, he actually cares about his clients. Even though he has a busy caseload, he took the time to talk to me about my case and explain to me precisely what was going on and how he was going to win. And winning is really what Ashkan is all about. He may not say it out loud, but I can just tell that he hates losing. As far as I am concerned, there is no other young advocate in the entire state of Texas that is as hardworking or sharp as Ashkan Mehryari. If I ever need to hire an attorney again, it will be Ashkan.

Disappointed
Good luck getting a straight answer. I referred several family and friends to this firm. I regret it deeply. Not only did this aloof firm drop the ball, I literally deal with the aftermath of family and friends because I vouched for the referral. I’ve been a healthcare provider for nearly 30 years and have worked with hundreds of law firms. This one leave me speechless.
