Nick Movagar
Nick Movagar's representation proved exceptional; most outstanding. Along with his staff, for the duration of my case, Mr. Movagar remained personally available while thoroughly explaining each phase of my case. Directed me to the best medical professionals for thorough treatment of my injuries. Above and beyond, in light of my dire financial and health challenges; to maximize the financial outcome of my case, compassionately, he adjusted downward his standard fee. His excellent representation resulted in my being awarded a handsome sum that exceeded my expectations. You will not be disappointed with the quality representation this lawyer delivers.

Effective injury representation
I was rear-ended while stopped at a light. I had a headache from the impact but after exchanging information, I was able to drive away and considered myself very lucky... Tried to shake it off but in additional to headaches, the dull aches and pains in my back refused to heal, and then a few weeks after the accident, I was informed by the insurance company that my car was being declared 'a total loss'. The other party had admitted fault but I was unable to afford proper treatment or even a comprehensive exam since I had no health insurance, was unable to work, and had limited cash. I had still not retained a lawyer since I'd had a bad experience in the past. Unable to cope, I finally started calling lawyers and that led me to Nick. I am so glad I found him. He immediately got me checked out by a legit doctor who set me up with effective treatment for my spinal injury. When it came time to settle he was able to secure a settlement that was many times more than I had expected. Nick was efficient and personable, great to have in my corner during a very difficult time.

Amazing Attorney
I was in a very serious automobile/pedestrian accident. I was hurt quite badly and had no idea where to go for legal help. I was referred to the law firm of Movagar & Yamin. Nick was incredible from the very first meeting to the last. He communicated with me on everything, was concerned with what was most important to me, was scrupulously honest and was sincere about helping me through this difficult time. I couldn't be more pleased with his professionalism and the results of the case. He was so effective and got me the maximum settlement. If ever I had a need for a personal injury attorney again, I would immediately go to Movagar & Yamin. I give them the highest of recommendations.

Simply the Best!!!
I couldn't ask for a better lawyer than Nick Movagar. During our first conversation, his main focus was getting me the proper medical treatment that I needed. I was already so frustrated with trying to deal with the insurance companies on my own, I didn't even want to peruse further treatment. However, after listening to Nick, I saw a back specialist and learned my injury from the car accident was more serious than I thought and I then sought the treatment and therapy that I needed. Nick also took over all dealings with the insurance companies and kept me informed every step of the process. I couldn't believe I tried to deal with them on my own, because they tried to take advantage of my ignorance of the legal process. Nick went to bat for me and managed to negotiate a great settlement. He truly cares about his clients and I would give him the highest recommendation for anyone in a similar situation. Out of 10, I would rank Nick an 11! Thanks again!!!!!

Straight Forward
I was involved in a car accident and was injured. I did not have an attorney so I called Nick. From the first call I was impressed. He was straight forward and guided me through the entire process. I was able to see an excellent doctor. He kept me informed via, phone email and texting. He is quick to respond to all questions. I am very happy with my settlement and the time frame it arrived.

On a scale of 1-10 I'd give Nick Movagar & his team a 20! What an exceptional individual. Just beyond words.
I have never been so satisfied with a business as I am with Nick Movagar as my attorney. I didnt know lawyers like him existed! He is so on top of his game its unreal. He actually cares about what you need and whats in your best interest. He returns emails and calls promptly, is nothing but polite as can be and seems to me like a GENUINELY good person. Thank you so much Nick! It was a pleasure to work with you. = )

Ideal representation
Mr. Movagar represented my husband and me after a car accident. He dealt with the insurance companies and made everything as easy as possible for us, explained things clearly, and responded in a prompt manner whenever I emailed him. He got us a great result with a minimal amount of effort on our part. We could not have had a better experience. Highly recommended.

Amazing experience
Nick Movaghar was my first experience with a lawyer and I couldn't ask for a better one. He is the perfect blend of knowledge with professionalism and compassion. Even though we didn't go through with my case he went above and beyond to inform me of the law and all matters with my case. If you are looking for a lawyer you can't go wrong with Nick. You will be making an excellent choice!

Nick took on my car accident case 2 months before my SOL and got amazing results
I had worked with 3 personal injury attorneys before, and no one was as effective or diligent as Nick. I was referred to Mr. Movagar 2 months before my statute of limitations, and was constantly surprised at how responsive and knowledgeable he was. Nick made himself available and accessible at all times; he even gave his personal cell to contact him with any urgent questions regarding my case. He responded to my emails within the hour, answered all my calls and questions, and kept me informed on the status of my case via email (my preferred method of communication). He even responded during the weekend! I would also like to note that I was out of state the entire time, but Nick handled my case and the communication wonderfully to the point that I was never worried. He is a talented and effective communicator. He has the ability to translate all the legal jargon into layman's terms and the patience to go over any of the subject matter as many times as you ask. His priority is for you to be informed about your case, and for you to have the best results from your case. He will support your decisions on your case, even if it may require more work on his side. He doesn't deter you from having control over your case. Nick is also very respectful when addressing you and your concerns. My auto accident settlement was of a smaller nature, but Nick never prioritized me by the size of my case. Despite taking my case on at a very late time, Nick was able to do amazing damage control and got me a wonderful result/settlement really quickly. He really works for your best interest. For example, Nick did not assert a lien on the original settlement the insurance company offered me because he noticed that I was a struggling, young mother. He was legally entitled to that portion, yet he gave that up to help me and my daughter out. Instead, he brilliantly negotiated a higher settlement. He has been kind enough to advise me on other legal matters surrounding this auto accident case as well. Nick is reliable, trustworthy, ethical, and well-versed in legal matters. He is a phenomenal attorney and an incredible person. I would recommend him to everyone. I feel very blessed to have worked with him.

Great accessible lawyer
Let me take a minute to praise outstanding service and professionalism. I was referred to Nick Movagar and decided to meet with him on a casual Friday. From the moment I met Nick he inspired confidence in me with a personal concern for my well being and a very positive and gung-ho attitude towards my personal injury case. He listened to all my questions, answering and addressing all my concerns then immediately seeked medical attention for my injuries. A few weeks Later when I expressed that a chiropractor was not working for my injury, he switched my treatment to an excellent physical therapist. As my injury did not get any better, he contacted an awesome doctor who performed an amazing arthroscopic shoulder surgery that I am still recovering from but I am thrilled with the results every day. Throughout my dealings with Nick, I found Nick to be very accessible in various ways. I tried not to call, I would email or text him and he would reply quickly and once he replied on a Sunday evening. In the end, I feel better physically from my shoulder - that's all that matters to me I would have never been able to get the surgery if it wasn't for his legal services and connections. But on top of that, I got an awesome settlement from both the guilty party's insurance and my personal underinsured motorist insurance. I am grateful that I took the time to meet with Nick Movagar and extremely happy with the results in choosing his firm as my legal representative. I hope this review is helpful to anybody who is searching for legal aid regarding a personal injury and I hope it also helps Movagar & Yamin grow their business. Keep up the outstanding work gentlemen! Again, thank you!

Car Accident Taken Care of by Nick Movagar
Nick Movagar was amazing at everything he did to help me both emotionally and financially. Seriously, even when I asked him a million questions that were unnecessary… just because I was worried about whatever it was, he still handled everything so professionally and he was just really helpful with everything… the car accident, the shop I got my car repaired at, the hospital, the therapy clinic, not to mention ALL the paperwork and ALL the medical bills were handled properly and correctly. Nick Movagar and his partner Steve Yamin are the best lawyers in LA when it comes to dealing with an auto accident and a neck & back injury. I'm sure they deal with a lot more cases but I am speaking strictly from my point of view and my case. I'm telling you all now, Nick Movagar and Steve Yamin are the way to go! You can trust them 120%.

Great attorney.
Nick kept me abreast of the legal and medical aspect of the case and communicated with me until the case was settled. I highly recommend Nick for personal injury cases. We both kept an open line of communications and he was vested in my recover from the accident and being make whole again. I hope that I never have another accident, but I know who to call if one occurs. Great job, Nick!!! Thanks, for all your help.

Excellent Lawyer
Mr. Movaghar is by far a very well trusted lawyer that looks out for your well being and can carry out your case to receive the best outcome out of it. He always kept me well informed and was always accessible to my questions or concerns. His best interest is for his clients to always know what is going on and to feel comfortable with what is best for your case. He also makes it relatively easy for your doctors appointments. My experience with him was superb as he always made me feel comfortable, kept me well informed, and never encouraged me to do anything I was not Ok with. He fights until the end to give you the maximum outcome as he is very knowledgeable and carries himself out as very experienced and professional. I am very thankful that I hired him. He met and went beyond my expectations.

Great experience! Highly recommend!
I started working with Nick after I got into a car accident where the other driver was clearly at fault. Nick helped me set up the auto repair for my car, and helped me find and schedule doctor and physical therapy appointments. He worked directly with both insurance companies to handle all the details, and was always quick to respond to my questions, offered great advice, and was extremely courteous, honest, and professional. His hard work lead to a great result on my settlement. I would definitely work with him in the future for personal legal matters, and will recommend him to friends, family and colleagues.

Great results and experience in a less than ideal situation
Nick worked with me in dealing with and handling a situation in which I was being threatened with a personal injury lawsuit having to do with my dog. In this situation the other side was being dishonest and I knew that I had to get professional help. Nick came as a referral from a lawyer friend of mine and I could not be happier with the result. The lawsuit did not progress past threats and my monetary responsibility ended up being more then I could have hoped for. Hopefully you do not find yourself on either side of this situation but if you do you can feel confident in dealing with Nick and his firm. It was obvious from the beginning that he was very knowledgeable about this area of law (personal injury), he did not mislead me or give me false hope.
