About Negin

Learn Negin’s areas of practice.

MY REVIEWS ARE A TESTAMENT TO MY RESULTS. THERE'S A REASON SO MANY PEOPLE HAVE BEEN HELPED BY ME.

Negin practices criminal defense in Orange and Los Angeles counties. Negin routinely defends the accused against all criminal charges including driving under the influence of drug and alcohol, domestic violence, child abuse and molestation, rape and sexual assault, robbery, and white-collar offenses. Amongst Negin’s noteworthy accomplishments are a hung jury and subsequent dismissal of a hit and run charge against a Los Angeles County firefighter, a hung jury and subsequent dismissal of assault with a deadly weapon charges against a San Bernardino County nurse, a swift 15-minute jury acquittal on pimping and pandering and prostitution charges arising out of a Los Angeles County under-cover prostitution sting operation, dismissal of all transportation and sale charges against a member of a marijuana collective, and dismissal of all theft charges at preliminary hearing against a Los Angeles County employee. These victories—amongst Negin’s extensive record of reduced-sentences, dismissals, and favorable dispositions in a range of matters—showcase Negin’s tenacity, strategic and thorough mounting of a defense from the very inception of a case, and meticulous and aggressive lawyering.

Passionate and relentless about what she does
My case in particular was a very complicated and difficult case from the beginning. Negin has proven to be relentless and diligent in representing me as my lawyer. Over the course of just under 2 years, Negin remained optimistic, honest, and always made herself available to me for any questions or concerns I had. Negin has proven that she is not only well educated and informed, but that she is also passionate about her clients and their free will and will fight to the last minute to get the best result possible. I can attest that she can work miracles in the court room. I am so thankful that I chose Negin to represent me and recommend her 100%.

A lawyer with compassion!
During one of the most troubling times of my life I needed the help of a lawyer. I didnt know where to begin. I searched high and low and consulted with many lawyers. After speaking with many lawyers about y case only 1 stood out as someone I trusted. That was Negin. Negin did an awesome job handling my case. She worked on my case relentlessly and was always took the time to meet or speak with me when I needed. The outcome of my case was favorable, given the situation. I highly recommend Negin for your criminal, civil, or litigation needs!

Excellent Attorney
I have to say that Negin is an amazing attorney. I hired her after letting my previous attorney go because it literally took me weeks just to get a hold of him. Negin was always prompt and diligent in getting back to me and relaying all the progress of my case. She also set aside good amount of time for us to meet go over the case and do whatever was needed to win. During the case she was very vigorous eager and zealous while arguing my defense. I've dealt with many attorneys in my life but never seen an attorney that was always on top of things and did her best efforts to help me in a genuinely way. I highly recommend her you won't go wrong!

A fantastic lawyer!
I can not say enough good things about Negin Yamini. She is a fantastic lawyer and a wonderful person to have on your side. She really thinks about her clients and what is best for them. Negin is fast to respond and super helpful. In fact, we first found her when she responded to us on a Saturday, which is pretty uncommon for a lawyer to be willing to do. When we called Negin we had so much fear about what was to come, and the whole process in general. She explained each and every thing along the way and answered all the questions we had. She put us at ease from the very first conversation, making us feel confident that we could handle this with her expertise and help. I can’t imagine a better person for the job. Our case resolved in the way that we hoped it would, and Negin was a pleasure to work with the entire time. We feel very happy and grateful to have found Negin Yamini!

Courageous and Effective Restraining Order Advocate.
Courageous and Effective Restraining Order Advocate. Negin Yamini got a TRO dissolved in a “stalking” case brought by my former partner after an awkward breakup. After interviewing me and reviewing the Petition, Negin assessed the case as without substantial merit. After efforts to settle the case were rebuffed, she encouraged and thoroughly coached me to testify at a four-hour trial, during which she effectively cross-examined my partner’s testimony. She developed a persuasive narrative theme of my case and facilitated my testimony despite objections and hostile cross-examination by the other lawyer. I was confident that Negin had my back from the day I hired her through the successful trial. I hope never to be in a similar situation, but would hire her again in an LA minute!

NEGIN YAMINI IS AWESOME!
NEGIN represented me in a domestic violence case over a more than three year period. She saved my life and in doing so gave me the opportunity to salvage my relationship with my family. She successfully advocated for judicial diversion in my case and just today the case was diversified and sealed. I really can begin to get the rest of my life back together and it all started with NEGIN, who was not just my advocate, but also organizer, bringing all necessary parties to the table to reach this agreement. Her work and her focus are top notch. Out the work in and invest in her, it’s beyond being worth it, it’s invaluable.

The best advocate you can find.
I had the privilege of working with Negin and her team over the past few months. I found it a unique experience. I have worked with numerous lawyers and law teams over the decades but have rarely found a team as professional, knowledgeable and well organized as that of Ms. Yamini. Her grasp of the facts of the case and their applicability under the law is unparalleled, as is her understanding of how the law pertains to each issue. Her knowledge and presentation skills make her courtroom appearances something from which other lawyers can learn. I would recommend Negin and her firm to anyone who is looking for a passionate and well-informed advocate.

Negin went above and beyond for me in my time of need
I highly recommend Negin Yamini, if and when you are in need of an attorney. She and her staff are and were a pleasure in a time when such confidence was needed. The understanding and effort they put into learning the back round of myself and my business is something I will always respect and appreciate. Each staff member I encountered was knowable of my case and situation as I entered each step of the legal process and the way they come together to work as a team is very seldom found. I am honored to know each and every one of them. Thank you again for everything Negin

Highly Recommend
I hired Negin's firm to provide legal support in my situation that involved harassment and extortion. Negin developed a strategy and implemented it in an expedited manner, effectively getting the perpetrator to cease and desist. Negin and her team were professional, empathetic and never judgmental. They were always reachable to answer questions or address concerns and their communications were clear, relevant and frequent.

Best lawyer EVER!
Negin is THE BEST! I was facing a frivolous and punitive hearing and I can't heap enough praise on Negin and her excellent staff. Always extremely professional, courteous, responsive, and caring. She made me feel comfortable through the entire process. Don't hire Negin at your own risk.. She is incredible!!

Amazed! Forever grateful! The one and only choice!
I cannot thank Mrs. Negin Yamini enough for her approach, professionalism, efficiency and understanding in my situation. I was given competent, immediate advice within 15 minutes of reaching out, and despite Negin's busy schedule we spoke directly, SAME DAY! She listened to me, without pressure, without rushing me into making a decision, and thoroughly walking me through all options. I am extremely lucky to have found a lawyer who is that dedicated and personally invested with a client. She was able to work with me in every aspect and reassured me from the first minute of our conversation. Forever grateful to Negin and her team, thank you for being there for me. Top choice, top tier, everything you want and need not only in a professional lawyer, but in a person altogether. Once again thank you Negin!!

A lawyer with confidence and positive mindset
I got a TRO out of the blue. I have never got one and didn’t know what the TRO stands for. It was done with a bunch of false accusations against me. Ms. Negin was the person who confidently assured me that I wouldn’t be given a permanent restraining order. She was supportive, polite, and kind throughout the time and helped me decide what should be good for us while moving forward. She knew, from the very beginning, what to do and how to proceed. She took my DV restraining order so seriously. Her closing speech reflects how good she is; her confidence and understanding of the situation are beyond doubt. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.

I highly recommend
I hired Ms. Yamini in January 2022 to assist me in petitioning for reinstatement of my psychiatric Technician license. My license had previously been revoked in 2013 due to multiple convictions related to substance abuse. In 2018 I got clean and had a baby and made it my goal to return to the career in which I knew and loved , but I knew proving myself to the board wouldn't be easy and I needed help and guidance. Ms. Yamini was very thorough in preparing my petition and presenting my case to the board at my hearing in February 2023. I got news that my petition for reinstatement was granted in March 2023 and now I can begin on my journey back into my career. Aside from the success in my case , I have to add that during the process of gathering paperwork and documents needed for the petition, I wad under an enormous amount of stress and had so many questions and concerns in which she was able to guide me through. She always responded to my texts and phone calls promptly and put my mind at ease . Money well spent. I highly recommend Ms. Yamini for anyone seeking assistance in reinstatement of a professional license.

Restraining Order Petition
There is often a lot of uncertainty with legal proceedings. In retaining the expertise of her office, Negin Yamini was able to provide clarity to the most-pertinent issues that would be litigated at the hearing. Competent and a strong trial attorney, she knew the best questions to ask witnesses, when to object – and her overall professional reputation with the Courts allowed me to feel less anxiety. Someone who is providing both justice and a meaningful contribution to equity in the legal industry.
