This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.

Amazing attorney
I was charged for the DV injunction in another state and my lawyer dismissed the case. I moved to LA and I was looking for a consultation about the expunging process and some other questions. I found Mr. Arash Hashemi and some other attorneys through searching on the internet based on client reviews. I called them to make an appointment for the consultation, but when they found out probably I am not a potential future client they did not give me an appointment. Mr. Hashemi accepted my request and made an appointment for a consultation. I walked into his office and explained him my case. He listened to me, looked at my documents carefully and explained to me what should I do. First, he spent about 30 minutes to give me his idea either I should go through expunge process or not, then I asked him some questions regarding how my immigration process could be affected. Just to help me and to answer my questions he called to one of his colleagues who was an immigration lawyer and talked with her about my situation another 30 minutes. I really appreciate his time and his consultation which was priceless for me. Not only I found him with high moral and ethical standards and with vast experience with civil and criminal cases but also a person who really cares about me and my future. I hope I never encounter with another problem like this but if something happens to me I will return to him. I would highly recommend Mr. Arash Hashemi to the reader of this review.

Defense attorney helped me win my case
I was facing criminal charges and I was afraid. After consulting with Arash I went ahead and hired him, it was the best decision I could have made; through his experience and knowledge he was able to get my case dismissed.

Flabbergasted
Arash was unquestionably helpful as soon as I initially contacted him. I contacted a couple different lawyers and either they never got back to me or most office's were closed. Arash got back to me as soon as possible and even scheduled an appointment with me at 7:00pm in his office the same day. He was on top of what needed to be done and always followed up with me to make sure I knew what was going on. I highly recommend Arash, the peace of mind and comfort he gave me was extremely satisfying along with my case outcome. Thanks again Arash!

Great criminal attorney!
Arash Hashemi is top notch criminal attorney. From the first phone call and on, he made me feel confident and in good hands. He was very reassuring and professional. I was quite scared since I'd never needed a criminal attorney before. He kept me informed every step of the way. Arash got my case resolved quickly and efficiently. I highly recommend him!

Arash is a lifesaver!
I first spoke to Arash in the middle of a panic attack. I had received a phone call from a jail informing me that someone I love very much had gotten himself arrested for the first time. Being that I've never dealt with such a terrifying situation, I managed to explain the charges and express my urgency to hire a lawyer for a possession case. Arash was extremely patient and understanding. He walked us through the process step by step and managed to get the charges dismissed.

Best Lawyer in The World
I was charged with a DUI and thought that i was wrongly accused. So I asked a good friend if they knew a great lawyer. My friend referred me to Mr. Hashemi. He was fair and reasonably priced. He helped me with my case. I would recommend him to anyone if they have any legal troubles

Reliable Defense Attorney
If you're looking for a professional attorney with knowledge of traffic laws Arash Hashemi is your guy. The consultation with him was very informative; he responded to my need and concerns. I was on my second offense regarding speeding and my ticket was $600.00 and I was denied traffic school and my insurance rates would go up too. He was able to get my speeding ticket dismissed and I was granted traffic school!!! I have also referred him to a coworker (traffic violation) and friend (DUI) Thank you, Arash!!!

Legal advice without hefty premium
Mr. Hashemi was unselfish enough to give me all the information I needed in our first and only consultation. Thanks to him, I did not end up paying what could have been an excessive legal fee.

I just wish when we need an attorney, somebody as decent, knowledgeable and reasonable as Mr. Hashemi handles our case. Very professional and considerate. He explained all the options and tackled and resolved my problem in no time without outrageous fees.

I met Arash last year and he was very helpful to me. From the first second he started my case he was updating me every day. He managed the dismissal of my case in a very professional way. His fees were also very reasonable. This is an attorney who take care of his clients.

I was almost a client of Arash's when I went to him for a personal legal issue. He was extremely responsive, compassionate, informative and knowledgeable. I've also had the extreme privilege and pleasure of working side by side Arash in a particular area of law. If I had a legal concern again, I could think of no better attorney I would want on my side.
