The Law Offices of Amir Sam Dibaei is a boutique litigation and transactional law firm in West LA providing general counsel to individuals, startups, small to medium businesses, athletes, actors and personalities.

Over the course of 8 years, the Law Offices of Amir Sam Dibaei quickly grew from a solo practice to a boutique firm by focusing on helping the client--not billing the client.

All the attorneys at the firm started as interns. "We're not hiring attorneys from other firms. Our philosophy is simple: if you do what you have always done, you're going to get what you've always gotten. Legal professionals and firms are far, far behind their business counterparts. We are ushering in a new era and to do that we need new lawyers,” says the firm’s senior partner, Amir Dibaei.

The lawyers at the firm may be young but they are the future. "You can't deny it any longer: our attorneys are better, our prices are better, our services are better," says Dibaei. “We are better—I can say that now—but in 4 years everyone else will be saying we are the best.” 

"You wouldn't believe how many attorneys start by boasting about their 20, 30, or even 40 years of experience. At the end, the result is always the same: our clients are satisfied." The results speak for themselves.

In the summer of 2016 the firm conducted an internal audit. What they found was astonishing: nearly all of the firm's clients are referrals. Even more astonishing was the fact that 15% of those referrals were from people on the other side. People are satisfied and word about the firm is getting out.

Since 2016 the firm has also added consultation services for Law Firms needing updated or customized tech-solutions; serving as counsel for Content Creators; Influencer Companies; Internet Companies; E-Gaming; as well as creating our own customized in-house softwares to help propel our capabilities far ahead of our peers.

 

“We call ourselves a ‘boutique’ firm because there is a range in quality that can’t be denied. Our goal is to push the ceiling even higher and separate ourselves even further from our contemporaries. There isn't a single firm that can match our hands-on and legal experience with Technology; Content Creation; E-Commerce; Emerging Regulations; Influencer Agreements; Sponsorships; Endorsements; Social Media Platforms and Helping Various Talented Content Creators; Influencers; Gamers and Niche Leaders operate just as any other business or Celebrity”

Rarely Do You Give the Person Suing You 5-Stars
Mr. Dibaei sued me and I'm leaving him a 5-star review. In reality he didn't sue me. He didn't write letters or leave messages or anything like that. An employee of ours hit his car in the parking lot (while he was in it) and then took off. He wrote down the number of the plate. A few weeks after it happened he called me and asked to meet face to face. He knew who had hit his car. He knew he worked for us. He wanted to settle the matter. I told him I need to call our attorney. He asked if I deny that our employee was at fault? I didn't answer. He said damage to his car was a couple thousand dollars and he hit his head on the steering wheel real hard. His phone had teeth marks on it as he showed me. Then he said: "you're going to pay for it." Which I found ridiculous. I told him I'm calling my lawyer. He didn't react. "Call your lawyer. That will be $300. And how many calls will you be making in the upcoming weeks? months? Or you can just pay for my car." I thought he was crazy! I told him emphatically. NO! And I almost kicked him out. He didn't seem to care. He went on "work it out however you want with your employee and your insurance. Otherwise I will file a police report, your employee will get in trouble and you will end up paying me anyways. At that point I will want a new phone, a dentists visit and just as things were getting heated up he stuck his finger in his mouth and showed me his wisdom teeth. "You see that? It's gold. I'm not a cheap date." I almost spit out my drink laughing. Just like that he cut me down to size. We talked a little about normal life. He came back the next day and dropped off a settlement agreement. I told him I would have to have our lawyer review it. He agreed. But then he grabbed the settlement agreement and wrote a note to my lawyer saying "if you are worth your salt it will take you 15 minutes to review this." He was making sure to keep the legal fees down for himself and even me! I thought that was really considerate of him. A week later we signed the settlement and he thanked me for making this easy. I asked if he was ok to which he smirked "you ask now that we've settled?" He was right. There was no point in getting our employee in trouble. No point in giving a bunch of money to lawyers. As he put it "no point in wasting our lives over a couple of metal boxes running into each other."

Mr. Dibael Is Clear, Concise and Thorough !!!
I engaged with Mr. Dibael, and he provided me answers to my questions that were clear, to the point and thorough. He never made me feel inferior or below his level because he is an attorney and I am a Pro Se self-represented fighting my way through this personal injury litigant. He provided me the same professional respect as a fellow colleague. His responses allowed me to understand that I was on the right track, which eliminated my concerns. His explanation was not complicated as if he was in the courtroom, he was not arrogant, but the opposite. if you are looking for an attorney that goes beyond, that gives you his time, that does not cut you short, that does not make you feel like you need to quit because you are just a Pro Se self-represented litigant, then Mr. Dibael is awesome with his communication with Pro Se litigants, informative while citing laws, points, and authority, etc. Thank you Mr. Dibael for your much needed help, much appreciated !!! Sincerely, MV Oakland, CA Pro Se Litigant

Auto-Pilot
I used to date someone that went to law school. When I broke up with this person, they proceeded to sue me for mental anguish. I thought it was ridiculous! Soon I realized having a complaint filed against you is a big deal. Every lawyer I called wanted to know how I would be paying and wanted $10,000 minimum. Mr. Dubai was the first lawyer I spoke with that actually cared about the situation I was in and agreed my situation was ridiculous. He was honest with me and told me he didn't know how much it would cost. I paid him for 10 hours and all of the costs associated with a defense. He told me not to worry and he would do his best. After 4-months I called and asked him the status of my case. Again he said he would let me know. 2 months later I saw there was a court date. I called his office and he was not in. I spoke to him the following day and asked him what was going on in my case. I was very nervous about this matter and he didn't seem to take it seriously. When I finally got him on the phone I was ANGRY and got ANGRIER by him being confused. As it turns out he had left me a voicemail and sent me an email. My case was dismissed. Still angry I asked him about my billing. He said an invoice with a return of my money was on its way with a document formalizing the dismissal. He also sent me everything he filed. I felt so bad because he had done a lot of research and filed a very articulate and concise motion for me which was granted. His prices: very fair. His office: very nice. His lawyering: surgical. Now I may need him for a TRO against the same person and I would not hesitate to use Amir again! -Michelle

Fantastic Attorney Referred to be in Germany
Yes I am from Germany and coming to the United States for some entertainment contractual discussions. Our band is being promoted by a label and we needed to meet and sign with them. We didnt want to spend too much money so we just asked Amir for a consultation (250USD). He insisted he come to the negotiations with us and say to us: "if my value was not worse it than you don't have to pay." Boy am I happy he came! He saved us our rights to our music and we didnt even know it. It was not in the paper we tooks to Amir's office so they just tried to get us to sign them right there. Very cool guy. Very loyal to his clientses and is not one to play the games. Our band manager started to try to fight with him and he just responded saying he is im patience because his client (us) is paying him hourly. He doesnt have time for his bull**** and wants a fair deal or we'll leave (which scared us). They left for 20 minutes and we were scared he ruined it for us. They came back. Agreed to everything he asked. He told us it was completely standard and that they are just trying to take advantage of some foreigner artists and a little attorney. The coolest part was his honesty and it was also the thing that made him so efficient (but scary to other side). Told me he works 90 hours a week and has to pay other lawyers for a bullshit case he is getting sued. Poor guy. I hope things turn around for him but I would recommend him for any sort of modern contract. He knew it all. Distributing. Social Medias. Amazon options. Design. He's good. Thank you!

Charitable with his Time and Money
Mr. Dibaei helped our women's club deal with a tenant that was taking advantage of his lease. The lowest price we received was $25,000 before going to him and receiving a $10,000 quote. He settled the case in 6 weeks and send us check for $8,750 and simply his invoice was hilarious. His total work hours came out to $16,640.00 but he only deducted $1,250. He donated $8,750.00 to our club. We offered to pay him $16,640.00 so he can donate that he can write it off on his taxes: he declined and justified his action by setting an example--not taking advantage of the system

The New Class of Lawyers
Mr. Amir is the new generation of Lawyer. Our Century City Office hired him for $5,000.00 to turn a segment of our office into a "paperless" office. The closest quote we got to Mr. Amir's was $32,000!! Can you believe that he saved us $27,000? When our senior partner told him he wouldn't be getting a job here because of the discount, he was as cool as can be! He replied: no. but just cause you said that I won't come help you when you are begging me to figure out how to do the next thing. He wasn't stupid. he knew we were going to replicate his work to the rest of the office. In reality we were stupid. He purchased 25 licenses for the 25 computers he worked on. To buy a license? $10,000. So how did Mr. Amir get 250k in licenses just to sell them to us for a fraction of that? The answer: he had done the legal work for the start up company that had the software. He ha a crystal vision of what the legal world of tomorrow is going to look like and he made it clear "none of these podcasts or articles tell you anything except vague, abstract ideas and statements. We all know technology will help... but does anyone know how? No. I had to pick up that torch and it really wan't that hard." Now half the staff wants him to come in and conduct a seminar. The older management especially. But he is one of these "I don't care about senior partners" type. "Don't hire me. You can make just as money overbilling your next client. That is, until that client hears about my office and you never heard from them again." He knew how to confront the wrong guy. I'll tell you that but his charisma and intelligence is off the charts.

The Language of Business
Mr. Amir speaks the language of business. My wife and I had been the victim of discrimination and were prepared to go to war. We spent weeks gathering as much evidence as we can. We spent almost $4000 on a private investigator. Mr. Amir gave us a very sincere talk about the "darkness" of litigation and how there are never any "winners" or "losers." His consultations are free for the first thirty minutes. We spent two hours at his office with 3 of his staff present for most of the time. At the end we knew we owed him approximately $500. He made us a deal that proved his point. He asked that we pay him the $500 in a check form which he would keep in his firm's client trust account. If we didn't pursue the matter any further he would give us the 500 back. My husband has dealt with a lot of lawyers and was thrown off by Mr. Amir. He was convinced Mr. Amir owns the restaurant or has some interest in the restaurant. Just as I was beginning to feel a weight lifted off my shoulder my husband called Mr. Amir and began accusing Mr. Amir. Mr. Amir was cool as can be and responded "well I hope that was worth $500" and hung up. As it turned out he had nothing to do with the restaurant. We never received our $500 but I have a feeling if we had--my husband would still be pursuing the damn lawsuit! Mr. Amir really knew how to speak my husband's language without being rude or confrontational. What's funny is my husband hates him now for "taking" our 500 even though that was for the hours of consultation. I called Mr. Amir to apologize and asked how I can make up for my husband's rude behavior and he asked me to post this story befor emy husband puts up a story.

The Most Trusted Attorney You'll Find in LA
I've been using Mr. Dibaei and his firm of super young, sleek lawyers for my business troubles for a while. Our last case he won within 18 minutes of a 7 day trial by conducting his own investigations. I gave him a $10,000 flat fee to conduct my trial. He spent $2,300 in research that he didn't tell anyone about until trial. Their fraud was so obvious the judge granted motion for judgment. He is in the top 10 business lawyers in Los Angeles. You would think he is a cocky, rich, jerk that takes credit for other people's work. Unfortunately for Amir, the "Trump Effect" has made itself into the Courts. Before that I had never seen a judge show Mr. Dibaei anything but respect. After, he produces the same work but the prejudice is obvious. It got so bad once that a judge made him file a complaint against another judge. 6 months later the response came and it simply asked for the same information. It was clear his complaint was thrown away. He is a great lawyer still. Top 10 in LA easy. He will tell you which Judges are racist and won't take certain cases where he might end up in their Court Rooms.

A Rare Mix of a Solid Person and Attorney
Mr. Dubai approaches his practice like a business so when I had to evict my tenants, he broke down the costs, benefits and how he would approach the situation. I came in for a free 30 minute consultation and we were done after 10 minutes. Instead of leaving abruptly he took the time to ask me some questions about my goals, finances and explored other possibilities before saying goodbye. He is very polite and capable.

dont judge a book by its cover; dont judge an attorney by his rates
In order of the strength of Amir's characteristics: (1) Smart; (2) Honest; (3) Hardworking; (4) Pessimist Mr. Dibaei is the best attorney I have met. He handles the affairs of our entire family. He talks the talk; walks the walk; and displays genuine (seems to be) empathy. I was sad to hear Amir is contemplating retirement from the profession but happy to hear he will be pursuing other charitable legal endeavors. I asked him: "won't you miss the money?" and he replied: "the most I ever made in a case was about $130,000.00. That same Judge cost me over $580,000 in that same year by calling me a liar in front of every Client I've ever had." He explained: "I just did too good of a job" and grinned without any further explanation. Typical Amir: always keeping everyone on their toes.

Amazing Lawyer
I am very happy that I found Amir. First of all, I had really difficult case. The short story, I lived in apartment with the mold, and manager of the building didn't want to help me, and she also entered to my apartment without any notice, I sent bunch of email to the company where I rented this apartment, but no one replied until I went there. I had real mushrooms growing from the ceiling, and smell was awful, I wasn't able to sleep in my apartment. So I hired lawyer, but it didn't work out, and I've got a lot of problems, I was very stressed out and exhausted. So I finally found Amir, all I can say that he is a genuine true expert in his field. I won the case with the Manager and Company where I rented my apartment. I just want to say thank you for your patience and for the work that you have done with my case.

A HOTSHOT LAWYER IN THE BEST SENSE
If someone said "hotshot LA attorney" you would have a picture of this guy in your head. But I've learned not to judge an attorney by his appearance. When it comes to Sam, his look is good. His work is even better. I was really ashamed to judge him on his appearance because he is one of the sharpest individuals I have ever met. He is not your typical "smart" but he has something more. He can read people like a book and likes to show off his intelligence (probably bc ppl think he's stupid). He played my landlord's lawyer like a piano. First he played stupid and when the other attorney let his guard down, Sam had him and forced a settlement. Done like a politician. The scary part is that if my landlord hired him I would be evicted right now. He made the difference and completely avoided a lawsuit.

Money Well Spent
My ex husband and I lived together until our divorce was finalized. When it was finalized we moved out and he demanded that he gets the entire security deposit ($33k). He was very rich and didnt need the money. He just didnt want me to have it. His attorney aka best friend filed a complaint against me for the security deposit and I was in deep trouble. Mr. Amir was referred to me by a staff member at the Sana Monica courthouse. I actually think the staff member was joking but I'm the only one laughing now. My ex's attorney was a real jerkoff and Mr. Amir handled him brilliantly. I ended up receiving approximately $30k of the $33k. Half of it was my share and the rest was for his fees. The dumbass attorney told the judge he was going to appeal and judge told him he would have to deposit $50k with the Court if he was going to do that! He didnt and I got the last laugh. It was especially satisfying to rub it in my husband's face. Mr. Amir was very understanding about my situation. His fee agreement was a mix of a percentage and hourly rate that guaranteed him a few thousand and major incentives for winning. I could have never imaged the result we neded up with!

Eager to Help
My daughter wanted to get a restraining order on her ex-boyfriend. We went and visited Mr. Dubai and he convinced her not to do it and to let things cool down. We had done our research and knew it would cost about $1,500 - $2,000 and we were prepared to pay but Mr. Dubai calmed my daughter down and gave her the best advice even though it didn't make him more money

Aggressive and Intelligent
Amir represented me in a litigation against an attorney with 27 years of experience. The case was a straight forward breach of contract and the client simply refused to pay me and tried to intimidate me with his "pitbull" attorney who ended up getting scolded by our judge for his hubris. 9 weeks after the complaint was filed we settled the case and I received all of the money I was owed and half of Amir's attorney fees. He cut through the chaos of a lawsuit like a hot knife through butter.

Paid for him
I retained Amir to defend me and file a counter claim against my former business partner. I had read his reviews and knew he was a good attorney but he was light years ahead of my former partner's attorney. As it turns out he is an expert with anti-SLAPP law. The judge commended him on his analysis and motion which was granted and dismissed the counter complaint against me! He crushed the other attorney so bad that the Court ordered the other side's ATTORNEY to pay us $8,500.00 for our attorney's fees! My other attorney didn't even know what an antislapp motion was and paid big time.

Great lawyer for anything you need
I used Amir Dibaei for multiple cases involving housing cases, civil disputes and traffic citations and has won each case with ease for me. He goes above and beyond for his clients and I would recommend this lawyer to everyone I know. I have come to call Amir my personal lawyer after all the great work he has done for me.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I met Mr. Dibaei at an event in LA and he was effortlessly the center of attention. When I told him this he replied "I'm usually the smartest guy in the room but if I'm not, I'm the one you'll remember anyways," he said in a completely joking and somewhat self-deprecating manner. About 4 months later we needed a business litigation attorney in LA. I suggested him to our managing partner and we retained Mr. Dibaei as our local LA counsel. Shortly thereafter we switched managing partners and the new partner wanted Mr. Dibaei replaced because she felt he was too inexperienced. To be completely honest I agreed that he may be too inexperienced. When we informed our client that we would be retaining new local counsel--she vehemently refused and echoed my sentiment about his genuineness. Both the partner and I had a chance to work with Mr. Dibaei during the project and immediately realized what a huge mistake we almost made. When it comes to litigators Mr Dibaei is the complete package"

Contracts and agreements Attorney | Feb 28
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Our firm worked alongside Mr. Dibaei. Mr. Dibaei's client is a startup that is raising capital secured by the company's assets. Our firm represents lenders (banks and hard-money). Our project required we collaborate with Mr. Dibaei to draft lending agreements mutually acceptable to all parties. Based on the adversarial nature of such a set up, there is almost always some level of contention between the attorneys. To the contrary, Mr. Dibaei had done his homework. He had taken the time to acquire previous agreements we had drafted and made changes to address his client's needs as a borrower. Mr. Dibaei possesses a tremendous and comforting presence that made the project go by very smoothly. Our managing partner wanted to create more billable hours so he took issue but Mr. Dibaei masterfully pacified the partner's ego without the project skipping a beat. Perhaps most impressive was his commitment to his client: he had drafted a masterfully tailored operating agreement."
