As an undergraduate at UCLA Mr. Charchian was trained in Political Science, International Relations, Psychology, Law and History. It was here that Mr. Charchian understood the interplay between large companies, governments and the people they serve. Seeing, for example, how a large company, driven by a profit motive, can choose to pollute a river with toxic waste, jeopardizing people's health to save money, made Mr. Charchian develop a desire to stand up for the
rights of the injured.
To enable him to realise his goal Mr. Charchian attended Law School at Pepperdine University in Malibu, California. There, not only did his passion strengthen, but he developed the tools necessary to pursue it. Immediately upon graduation, Mr. Charchian took the California State Bar Exam and was admitted to practice in California.
Wasting no time, Mr. Charchian entered employment at a respectable Los Angeles plaintiff's civil litigation firm. There he worked on a multitude of cases from large multinational class-actions involving billion-dollar companies with hundreds of millions at stake, to smaller personal injury matters.
Despite his far-reaching work, Mr. Charchian's most satisfying case involved a simple car accident where the driver had broken her wrist and developed Carpal Tunnel Syndrome as a result (Coronado v. Chang, LASC Case No. BC347501). From her condition, Plaintiff a 15-year sewing machine operator, with no other skills, could no longer use her hand. This was devastating since she could not get another job and was forced to live in poverty. Even though liability in the accident was clear, the insurance company refused to make payment. Through Mr. Charchian's efforts the case settled on the morning of trial for $95,000 ($5,000 less than the max policy limit). This enabled Plaintiff to get corrective surgery and continue to live a productive life.
Currently, Mr. Charchian is the principle of Glendale, California based Benjamin Charchian & Associates. Through that practice, he is able to continue his mission representing individuals with all types of injuries. Mr. Charchian takes a hands-on approach and is personally involved with all aspects of his cases. If you have been injured and would like to talk with Mr. Charchian please feel free to contact him at
