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!

Deeply Knowledgable and Compassionate
I believe in honesty and integrity, and when I needed the services of a criminal lawyer I was overwhelmed in trying to find the right person that I could rely on during some  of the hardest times I have experienced in my life. Negin Yamini and her legal team met every expectation and excelled at leading the preparations for a defense that would expose the truth and preserve my sense of justice and peace of mind. The very first conversation with Ms Yamini was an immediate confirmation that she was the right lawyer for me and my case. I had interviewed a number of other attorneys, and none of them could provide me with the confidence and compassion to my unique cases as she did. Her legal assistants were all very thoughtful, skillful and kind. Everyone worked diligently to prepare for my criminal  case.  The most important factor I felt Negin imparted was that there was hope and that she in her years of law practice absolutely believed this case was defendable. She explained A to Z in the legal processes and was helpful beyond words in guiding me through the work and documents that I needed to draft  and provide. Communication was critical for me to feel like my needs were getting the attention they deserved. All of my texts and calls were responded to in a quick manner. I never felt like my case had been deprioritized or that her fee wasn't reasonable for the service I was receiving.  As we prepared a strong and extremely detailed mitigation package, I felt confident too, that this would all work out for the better. Fortunately, the DA filling agent rejected the case based on the lack of credibility of the accuser.  Since I can not attest to Ms Yamin's skills in the courtroom, I will only say that working with her initially was  highly mentionable in a review. I would recommend her to family and friends, and will continue to work with her and her team in the future should I need her counsel. I also wanted to mention that as I was searching for an attorney, I came across another review that wasn’t as favorable, and as a critically thinking adult I read through it carefully and was able to see that it was someone's experience, but was also overly exaggerated, based on the persons clear objective to tarnish a professionals reputation. Interesting that I came to her with a similar situation, although it wasn’t just a review, it was a criminal charge.  I think in a world where the internet will post and magnify content that individuals can spread without concern or a sense of personal accountability, reviews have to be taken with a grain of salt. I am absolutely impressed and beyond satisfied with Ms. Yamini's professionalism, her personal relatability, her knowledge and most importantly her strength to fight for her clients. Cyan

Exceptional Legal Representation
I recently had the opportunity to be represented by an extraordinary attorney during my dealings with the Structural Pest Control Board of California, and I feel compelled to share my experience with anyone in need of legal counsel. From the onset, my attorney exuded confidence and deep legal acumen, which immediately put my mind at ease in what was an undeniably stressful situation. Throughout the entire process, my attorney was not only my advocate but also my advisor. Her approach was one of meticulous preparation, profound understanding of regulatory laws, and strategic planning. She was always one step ahead, anticipating the board's concerns and crafting compelling arguments in my favor. Communication was seamless; I was kept informed at every juncture. My questions were answered with clarity, and her responses to my concerns were prompt and comprehensive. The personal attention I received made me feel as though I was her only client, although I know she is highly sought after. The negotiation process was where her talents truly shone. With poise and determination, she navigated the complexities of my case, engaging with the board with a perfect blend of assertiveness and diplomacy. Her negotiation skills are second to none, and because of her exceptional expertise, we were able to negotiate a stipulated settlement that was fair and favorable. The outcome of my case was beyond satisfactory, and it's all thanks to my attorney's unwavering dedication and exceptional legal prowess. I am immensely grateful for her representation and would recommend her services without hesitation. If you are looking for a lawyer who will work tirelessly to protect your interests and achieve the best possible outcome, look no further. Five stars simply aren't enough to rate the quality of service and peace of mind she provides.

Negin Yamini Super Lawyer
Negin Yamini is a terrific lawyer. She is super smart, easy to reach, confident and calm under pressure, but most of all she is honest and has a big heart. She truly cares about her clients and hates corrupt attorneys. She and her associate, Jae, are methodical and professional in their preparation and don't let anything slip through their fingers. Negin defended me in a civil case. She never let the opposition intimidate me and kept me calm under fire with her gentle reassurances. Things turned out very well thanks to Negin's tireless advocacy. I unequivocally recommend her for any civil or criminal case. If she is available, hire Negin. You will thank me later.

Fantastic Lawyer!
Wow! I was absolutely impressed with the way Negin handled my civil harassment case. If you’re anxious about a case and need reassurance, I can assure you Negin Yamini will ease your worries! She is extremely well spoken in court, and gets the job done! I appreciated how she always stayed in contact with major updates about my case, even when she was busy, she made time to discuss my case with me. Negins effort did not go unnoticed as she made a three hour drive for a case that should have been virtual. She is truly a super lawyer and I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of a lawyer that goes above and beyond!

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!

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

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!!
