About Armen

Learn Armen’s areas of practice.

1
Practice area

I am a civil trial lawyer and am driven by the strong desire to enforce the rights of injured victims. I like to see level playing field regardless of socio-economic condition of the parties. To that end, I almost exclusively represent the regular folk, consumers against insurance companies, corporations and conglomerates. There is nothing more satisfying to me when we obtain fair compensation and achieve justice in a David v. Goliath context.

Expert Advice
Armen Tashjian helped me understand my statue of limitation. He walked me through the process with much clarity and patience. He explained the steps I will need to follow in preparation for my case. He was very resourseful and didn't mind giving me his time to speak over the phone with me to tell me how to go through these steps, where to get them, and things to ask for. The level of dedication, time and involvement he spent with me (even though he has not been retained yet) speaks VOLUME of him. He is the attorney I want for my case. As soon as I'm ready with what he will need to open up my case, I am moving forward with him. *Additionally, there's a lady who answers his phone calls. She sounds VERY warm each and every time I've called the office. She is very calm and soft-spoken and ready to meet client's needs.

Excellent attorney. The process was smooth from beginning to end. I was updated at all times on the status of my case as well as being well informed and advised on the things I needed to do. Thank you, Armen Tashjian, for your excellent work. I really appreciate your prompt communication at all times, and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. I'm so thankful for the hard work you put in and couldn't have traveled this difficult road without you.

Best Attorney! Reasonable, Honest, and Straight-Forward
Armen has taken great care of me during an extremely difficult time in my life. His professionalism and determination to help me in any matter throughout my case were unmatched with any other lawyer I've ever had. I recently went by the office and the entire staff is warm and welcoming and the office was decorated for Christmas time and really makes me feel at home. I highly recommend anybody for any matter they have.

Highly competent attorney
I would highly recommend Armen Tashjian as a staunch, exceptional, first rate attorney. Of I had another case, I would return to him for service, and if I could refer someone, I would do so with the upmost confidence. Armen represented me in two cases, and won them both. I got the max settlement in one of my cases and close to the max in the other case. He fought for me and ensured that I was happy with the results. If you want an exceptional attorney to have in your corner, I would definitely recommend Armen!

Great Attorney, highly recommended
I have always gone to Armen for any and all legal matters. This man goes above and beyond for his clients. That amount of dedication and hard work is what keeps me from going elsewhere. I can vouch numerous times that he has saved me from devastating car accidents to malpractices. Communication is a big factor when dealing with time-sensitive matters and he makes it look easy. Their office is well designed and not hard to find either. I highly recommend anyone seeking legal assistance to visit him. He is experienced and knows what he is doing. He is currently working on my case and I have no worries or doubts about this man's capability. This is the man to go to.

The BEST in town!
Mr. Tashjian is an absolutely solid lawyer. I was blown away by the speed of which he conducted himself, his professionalism towards my case, and his ability to fight an uphill battle with EASE. He fought long and hard to represent me and I am completely satisfied with the fruits of his labor. His patience is second to none! I would recommend him to anybody! Stop reading about him and give him a call, it'll be one of the best decisions you'll ever make. Thank you for everything Mr. Tashjian!

Superb Attorney
Armen has been like a father figure to me, very endearing with just an overall warm heart. I sought his counsel over 2.5 years ago. I was involved in quite a few car accidents and he fought the insurance companies, rigorously for an incredibly high award. Certainly one I would not have been able to recieve on my own. He goes above and beyond for his clients, that I know, since I’ve also heard this same sentiment from others who’ve been under his counsel, including me. If you are interested in getting the highest award for your pain, suffering and all that you’ve endured at the hands of another entity, I strongly suggest this proven, tried and true professional

Help vs the big guys
Big insurance companies make it impossible to keep things simple, trying to take advantage of regular people at every turn! Armen demystified the process of getting reimbursed and told me exactly what not to sign away. He was extremely knowledgeable, helpful and his advice worked. I highly recommend.

Armen was very generous with his time with us, spent more than 2 hours with us talking about everything. Gave us some concrete steps to take and a clearer idea of our situations.

Thank you Mr. Tashjian and happy coming Holidays to you!
I personally had great experience with this attorney on initial consultations and would recommend to my friends for all their legal advices. Mr. Tashjian took his time personally to answer all my questions in several occasions and gave me great legal advice on my Federal legal court matters. I did not hire him, but for any other cases, if I need, I would.
