After a great deal of research, I was introduced to Shaun Khoyayan......which I count as one of the best things that has happened to me. At a time when I was very frightened of what was going to happen, Shaun took the time to put me at ease. He never told me anything that did not prove out to be truthful and he went above and beyond to make sure that all resources were brought to bear to achieve the best possible outcome. I could not have had better representation. I would recommend him to anyone in need of attorney services.

My name is Richard Lichten. I am a retired law enforcement official who now consults and provides expert witness services to law firms, public agencies, and the media in criminal and civil cases. Mr. Shaun Khojayan had me appointed by the federal court to assist him with a felony criminal defense case involving prison inmates who allegedly attacked a prison guard. I have worked with hundreds of lawyers. I tell you without hesitation that Mr. Khojayan worked very diligently on his client's defense. No shortcuts were taken. Mr. Khojayan did not just go through the motions; he took a personal interest in this case and worked many long hours. I know he worked long hours because I remember him calling me well after hours to discuss the case. Mr. Khojayan and I traveled a long distance to personally interview the defendant inmate. I was impressed by the way Mr. Khojayan interviewed the defendant. Based in large part on Mr. Khojayan's method of pulling out the smallest detail from the defendant, I was able to use that information when I provided expert testimony at trial. I also want to say that Mr. Khojayan took the time to not only take all of my calls; he took the time to meet with me a number of times for trial preparation. Mr. Khojayan has my highest recommendation to anyone in need of a serious criminal defense trial lawyer.

Shaun was very instrumental in helping resolve my case, I needed to travel extensively for business and was hindered by the approval process requirements of probation. He actively worked in a timely manner to have my probation discharged after 6 months to give me the ability to travel for business . Within 3 weeks of working with Shaun my case was resolved. I highly recommend him, attentive, responsive & a proactive advocate.

Shaun Khojayan and Associates is the BEST firm out there!! Shaun did an amazing job representing my brother in a high profile federal case and the charges against him were devastating. What appeared to be a long drawn out hopeless situation, Shaun was able to use, not only his expertise for the facts of our case, but more importantly, his genuine care to see the BEST OUTCOME for our situation. There was NEVER a delay in his response to a question and he was always an email or phone call away. If you are seeking attorney services with the highest levels of professionalism and care, Shaun and his team can provide for you exactly what you need. You will not be disappointed!

I am very grateful for Shaun and his assistant Gracie; they made us feel we were in great hands. They were always available to answer any questions or concerns. The result of the case was superior than was expected due to his expertise. I strongly recommend him! He is the best attorney you can have. We are very thankful.

I endorse this lawyer. I have worked with Shaun on several matters and can honestly say that he is one of the top attorneys I have seen. His knowledge, skill, and expertise sets him apart from the rest. Shaun pays attention to all the details and is passionate about the work he does for his clients. Additionally, Shaun maintains a high degree of professionalism, integrity, and commitment to providing excellent service. I definitely endorse Shaun as being a great attorney in all respects.

Shaun Khojayan is an aggressive and experienced lawyer with excellent trial skills. I had the pleasure of working with Shaun in two very serious federal criminal drug cases. He is always well prepared and clients appreciate his dogged defense and excellent judgment. One of his clients looking at a 10 year mandatory minimum prison sentence took Shaun's advice to go to trial. That client walked out of court fully acquitted of all charges. He saved his client's life. I would not hesitate to recommend Shaun to anyone looking for an experienced and tireless defender.
