Thank you... YOU saved my career!
Deborah saved my teaching career. Instead of trying to solve issues with antagonistic administrators on my own, I contacted Deborah, and it was the best decision I could have made. She helped me navigate an impossible situation with the district, and this allowed me to work successfully until I was eligible to retire with my pension intact. She saved my career and my retirement. I could not have done it without her. I highly recommend her!!!

Teacher
I wanted to first thank God for guiding both Deborah and me through this process. I also like to thank Deborah for guiding and working with me for two years while in a system that harassed me. I’d like to say how impressed I was when the settlement judge assigned to my case said, ‘I should thank my attorney for the fine work that she is doing ‘ and the opposing counsel agreed by saying ‘ yes Deborah really cares about her clients.’ That was validation for me because hiring Deborah to represent me was the best decision I made because I got more than what I imagined. If you are seeking an attorney who advocates and cares about her clients than Deborah should be your choice too.

Great and Knows Her Stuff!
After 14 years of trying to be a good teacher, in May of 2016, I was falsely accused of misconduct and stealing. I was complaining about the mismanagement and incompetence of my principal. The district allowed her to devise lies and accusations against me. My union rep said she would not refer me to a union lawyer for help at this level. I called Deborah and she helped me every step of the way. She help me prepare my statement to the district. I was not aware of things one can say innocently that can be used against you. Deborah guided me on what to say and how to say it. I was totally ignorant. Now I understand what it means when they say What you say can be turned around and used against you. She was with me by conference call, ( I live over 100 miles away) when I gave my statement to the district. She was efficient and competent. She even redirected the district lawyer, when she felt they were trying to trip me up! Deborah gave me assurance and confidence when I needed it. She was great! I hope I won't ever have to go through this again, but if I do, I will call Deborah.

above and beyond
I meet Ms. Eshahgian under unique circumstances 6 years ago. I was being investigated by the Department of Children and Social Services. They were threatening and intimidation to take my child away from me it was unbearable. I never felt so helpless and detached from having control of my life until Ms. Eshahgian step in and went above and beyond the call of an attorney. She would come to my home every other week doing the Department of Children and Social Services home visit. Having representation and support gave me not only dignity and control. Ms EshahgianI made the atmosphere pleasant though her presence and demeanor set a tone for objective and fairness that the Social Workers will follow or feel the wrath of her elegant through cross examining question. The case would eventually be dropped and my parenting skills no longer in question. Just recently the Commission on Teaching Credential wanted to take away my Teaching Permit from me until Ms. Eshahgian signed on to represent me and then my case was dropped. Now the Department of Social Service Caregivers Background check Bureau is investigating my character, after all I've been through in the past six years. Im sure Ms. Eshaghian will find away so the truth will prevail.

Quality, Assurance, and Peace of Mind
Ms. Eshaghian is not only a wonderful, elegant, and overall spectacular person, she is a superb attorney that will go the extra mile for her clients. Deborah took me in at a time when I didn't know who to turn to and simply ask questions. She not only helped answer all my questions but also took control of a situation that could have completely gone awry and made everything right again. I am proud to say Deborah Eshaghian is my attorney, but even more proud to say that with everything she has helped me overcome that she is very much a friend. I highly recommend Ms. Eshaghian to anybody looking for an attorney. I am aware of the many stereotypes out there about lawyers and I must admit I was a little worried during my search. This is the very reason why I decided to take the time out to write this review for Ms. Eshaghian. I feel I am doing a service to people that were like me simply searching for a somebody helpful, a voice, somebody knowledgeable, hard working, and could truly understand where I was coming from. Ms. Eshaghian surpassed all my expectations and shatters any negative prejudices one may have about attorneys. She has high recommendations from me and I feel truly indebted to her. Thank you Deborah!

Very Committed
Deborah represents teachers with passion and care. She is there representing teachers against false charges that are made by the District. She prepared me for my credential hearing in Sacramento by adequately prepping me for my response . She set up multiple meetings to make sure I knew what to do in that situation and how to respond. Because of her, I was calm and prepared and not panicked. She is extremely committed to her clients. I have already recommended her to many colleagues in my situation.

You were my angel
I am a teacher and the School district wanted to fire me for false accusations. Deborah immediately requested a hearing for me and filed a notice of Defense. She is extremely knowledgeable and experienced. I asked around and her reputation precedes her! She is hard working and will fight for your rights. She did not back down from the School district. I am so happy I had her on my team. Thank you so much for getting me what I needed to move on with my life!!! I can't stop but thanking God for sending you my way. You were my angel!!!

Forever Grateful
I am very glad that I retained Deborah for my legal issue. I actually had a few issues that she took care of for me. First, she set up my corporation in a timely and efficient manner. I only had to sign one document and she took care of everything else. She also took care of some other personal issues. She talked me through the process step by step. She provided me with the answers and feedback that I needed. She was also always quick to get back to me either by phone or email. She was always available, 24/7. I was so worried about my legal situation, but talking to her alone was comforting. She is extremely efficient. I would recommend her to anyone. I also referred a friend to her, and my friend won't stop thanking me! She is the type of lawyer you want on your side. She is tough and will not back down, even when the odds are against you. Thank you Deborah.. You saved me!!! I am forever grateful for your hard work.
