About me

I have been licensed to practice law in the State of California since 1999.  I am the managing shareholder of Century City Law Group, a Professional Corporation.  I studied accounting at the University of Southern California, and obtained my law degree from Loyola Law School.  While attending Loyola Law School, I served as a Production Editor of the Entertainment Law Review, and was also placed on the Dean's Honor List.  I was named to the Super Lawyers' 2011 Rising Stars list for Southern California.  I serve on the Executive Committees of Beverly Hills Bar Association's Business Law Section, Beverly Hills Bar Association Law Practice Management Setion, and Los Angeles County Bar Association Remedies Section.  I am the immediate past Chairman of the Legal Committee of the Southern California Nessah Educational & Cultural Center.  I am fluent in English and Farsi, and have limited command of the Spanish language.  I am active in the community, and enjoy hiking and photography in my spare time.  I work passionately and aggressively in representing my clients and protecting their legal rights.
