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!

A lawyer who fights for you
As soon as I first spoke with Negin Yamini on the phone I knew I had found a lawyer who was compassionate, caring, and confident in her skills. I had found myself in serious trouble and desperately needed legal representation. Negin was available for a consultation over the phone that night. Her demeanor when we spoke immediately calmed my nerves and provided immense relief from the fear of the unknown. That confidence proved to be entirely warranted, as she resolved my legal issue in the most positive way imaginable with no ramifications on my life whatsoever. I am so blessed and grateful to have found her. I was facing the worst situation of my life, and I felt like she was there for me every step of the way. From that very first consultation up until my case was resolved I felt more and more weight lifted off of my shoulders because of her attentiveness. Negin took the time to respond thoughtfully to every question and concern that I had with patience and genuine care. When it came down to the wire, I appreciated the strong and direct manner by which she handled every interaction in my case on my behalf. I really felt like I had someone fighting on my side for me, and believe me I really needed it. Thankfully, Negin is so intelligent and skilled at her profession that she was able to completely avoid charges being filed against me at all. She truly is remarkable, and I am so incredibly grateful to her.

Felony Dismissed/False charges by police
I worked w Negin it was a pleasure. Straight forward, honest, efficient to the point. My case was favorably resolved justice was served. I was falsely accused by police. Charges, facing a felony with serious repercussions facing imprisonment, future compromised, brokers license revoked. 4 charges were made, 1 a felony. Felony dismissed. 2 misdemeanors remained then after a diversion motion for therapy ALL charges dismissed, arrest record to be sealed. I was granted diversion motion due attention to detail & care. HONESTY. Negin will resolve your case at the pace/speed it needs. She won't waste time, motions or court dates to bill more. I had 2 previous attorneys working my case with no results. 1 misleading me the other negligent. Wasted time, money, stress, negligent, dishonest, manipulative. Many attorneys take advantage when someone is in a weak, unsure, uncertain, unknowledgable position. Not here. Honesty & direction is key to get legal matters resolved. Clarity. I would not go anywhere else in a legal matter. Please do yourself a service, a favor & go with Negin. I was once in unfavorable shoes, future looking meek. It all changed w proper honest representation. Clear. No BS. You will get peace of mind & clarity & results!! Follow your instinct. I highly recommend anyone to proceed with Negin. No need to shop around interview liars, lazy manipulative money only attorneys. E. Faltes

Hands Down, The BEST!
I’m hesitant to write this review because I simply do not have the words to convey the appreciation and respect I have for Negin Yamini. Her knowledge and expertise in the field was evident throughout the hearing. When you are dealing with life and find it necessary to hire an attorney, that alone would weigh heavy on anyone’s shoulders. Negin knew exactly what she was doing and because of this, we won. Not knowing where this situation would take me, I left it all (my life) in her hands.. She and if not her, her team, always responded to any questions or concerns I had. I was scared and confused but Negin made my situation a little easier.. if you want an attorney who knows her stuff, doesn’t play games and makes it a point to keep you well informed, Negin is the best! She is very busy but she certainly got the job done! Thank you Negin, for all your help and support through my crazy ordeal! It’s good to see the justice system work! Well, how could it not when you have such an amazing attorney!

100% would hire again - thank you!
My physical safety and protection were on the line, and Negin exceeded my expectations to help me with my DVRO case. She is extremely intelligent, aggressive in the courtroom, and is worth EVERY dollar you spend. For my specific case, I felt more at ease hiring a woman lawyer -- and she is the embodiment of a strong, empowered, "won't take any of your crap" lawyer. I was living every day in extreme fear for my safety when I hired her, and she did everything in her power to make sure I came out of this case feeling safe and legally protected. I am really grateful for all her effort and services, and would 100% definitely hire her again.

Amazing lawyer who cares
Negin was referred to me by a friend who had a great experience with her. She met me at a time when I was scared, worried and vulnerable. From the first conversation, she put my mind at ease and let me know I had nothing to worry about. I'm a bit of a worrier and whenever I had a question or needed advice, she was quick to respond and always uplifted my spirit. She really cares about her clients and it shows. Through her hard work, we had a very favorable outcome! I hope I never have to use her services again, but I would if I had to and I would recommend her to anyone.

Amazing Attorney to the Rescue
Her work on my case was mostly hidden and I got to know her during the trial. Opposing attorney had 3 witnesses over 12 exhibits and was going on for more than an hour, only brought back to order few times by her. When she spoke everyone was silent. it took her 10 minutes to dismantle their case and she wiped the floor with them. She was clear as shining beacon of light and her intelligence was her weapon. Few questions later the opposition felt like they were naked and everyone was aware of their true nature. I think the opposing attorney was without words. He had build this sure win case and had all those exhibits and witnesses but she destroyed it all in few minutes. She is the best attorney I came across and you should be lucky to have her on your site. Her intelligence, her integrity and knowledge shines in courtroom and I wish her the best.

Thank you Negin, Traci, and staff
I was the victim of a crime and worked with Negin on a restraining order case that was sensitive in nature and it was one of the worst experiences of my life. Negin was very empathetic and understanding about my situation but handled my case with sensitivity, diligence, and professionalism. She worked with me in some of the more difficult moments of my life and fought for me so I can have a sense of safety again. Looking back, I’m not sure how I would’ve gotten through this experience without her and her associate, Traci Childers, who were both excellent and represented me fiercely. Negin was responsive to my messages and calls and she was very thorough with my case. Negin and her colleagues are very professional and they have fought for me relentlessly. Thank so much to Negin, Traci, and staff for your support

A Most Grateful Client as well as Student of the Law
Negin Yamini is one of the most knowledgeable, talented, toughest, and passionate defenders I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. I found her by happenstance, and she was able to assuage my fears about what it was that I was dealing because Year 2022 has been really hard for me, and she helped make it better. She won my case in court and made my opponent look like a total idiot before the trier of fact. I would recommend Negin to ANYONE that has legal problems. She has more than righteous earned her position as a superwoman super lawyer. She also is a great mentor to me as well, and I am most grateful to be in her orbit. She goes above and beyond for her clients.

Very aggressive in court, Gentle and reassuring with clients.
My initial impressions with Negin were that she was very welcoming and did not rush me whatsoever (which is what pushed me away from other attorneys). Negin was very assertive /aggressive in court (the pitbull in a skirt comment was right) and she was trying her best the entire time, she exhausted all of our options and got me a favorible result. Most importantly, her rate was fair and she didn't try taking advantage of me during a stressful situation.

ATTORNEY WHO CARES
My case was not anything major. A small Misdemeanor. However after speaking with Negin Yamini I truly felt that i was led to her for a reason. She answered all my questions and would respond to any that I had regardless if it was by email, phone or even text.. YES TEXT.. most attorneys will not even go that far. My case was resolved favorably and J cannot thank Ms. Yamini for her help and attentiveness to it. She made me feel like i was her only client and that she truly cared about me.

Lawyer
I spent plenty of time reading reviews on the internet and searching for a good lawyer and found Negan Yemini standing out from the crowd. I gave her a call on Sunday afternoon and able to reach her. From the initial phone call, I knew right away she was the lawyer who could do the work. A lawyer who was available to take my call on Sunday afternoon and listened to my case was very noteworthy. She was very confident, professional and was always just a call and text messages away to answer any of my questions, even late at night and weekend. She managed to win my case and I’m very grateful for her hard work and highly recommend to anyone who needs a lawyer.

NEGIN IS A TRUE PROFESSIONAL
Negin won our case with ease. She is five moves ahead of the other side. She is a strategist worthy of the best Chess Champion in the world. I would not go into trial without her on my side and good luck (you'll need it) if you face off against her!

Skillful Super Attorney.
My search for an Attorney to defend me successfully took me to the Law Office of Negin Yamini. I was charged with two counts of felonies of Rape! I needed a smart Attorney that can think outside the box that will represent me diligently and fight for me because my life depended on it. Also, this was very important to me, money; I was looking for one that can accommodate my lean and limited financial muscle, out of all the Attorneys that I shortlisted, Ms. Yamini came out like a sore thumb, our first meeting told me she was the one to let me off the hook. Her charges were fair and moderate, she worked with me every step of the way (I missed so many payment deadlines. Lol.) She never stopped being my Attorney, she would rather say “I will fight for you”. During pretrials, she represented me well and got the best deal that they could offer but I turned it down telling her “ I want to clear my name because I was wrongly accused” she said “If you choose to go to trial fine, I will fight for you and I will give my best but with the jury trial it is a 50/50 thing, I am not guaranteeing anything but I will fight for you” Those were her words. She and her team worked day and night on the case, and went over the evidence and discoveries presented by the prosecutor line by line with a ‘magnifying glass and comb’. Having done a ‘surgical dismantling’ of such discoveries she approached the prosecutor asking him politely to drop the case, she went ahead to intimate the prosecutor with such reasons, but he was adamant. When the trial started, she tapped my shoulder and said “we got this” that meant a lot to me, with the prosecution team and all the resources, help, and advantages they had; my Attorney assured me that we got this! She made deft and skillful moves during the jury selection that gladdened my heart. I remember looking at the petite size of ms Yamini compared to the almost gigantic size of the prosecutor and my mind went to the story of David and Goliath in the Holy Bible, despite the size of the giant Goliath and his armies and weapons, David won the battle with a sling and one stone. She took the air out of the sail of the prosecution ship by getting the judge to throw out what they had intended as the most potent and powerful weapon in their arsenal. At this point Ms. Yamini openly asked the prosecutor in the open court if he likes to ask for a dismissal of the case with their relied evidence out of the window, but he remained adamant. Ms. Yemini held everyone in the courtroom spellbound during her opening, crossexamination of a “difficult complainant” and her closing were superb and extraordinary, she used well-annotated PowerPoint to make mincemeat of the prosecutor's case and she lectured them effectively on what reasonable doubt means and she was able to appeal to the jurors' conscience and common sense. She turned the prosecutor into a mere spectator in what was supposed to be his show! Eventually, the jury reached a verdict and exonerated me of both charges. Ms. Yamini and her team come highly recommended.

Excellent and Personable Service
I was having trouble finding someone who would take my case on when Negin Yamini was recommended to me. She was able to help me through a difficult situation, step by step and get me the best possible resolution. I am glad that I was able to hire her, because things would've gone very different for me without her guidance and representation
