Perfect in a crisis
Not only was his calm and professional demeanor exactly what we needed in response to a DUI charge. But his depth of knowledge of the entire legal process, the different environments in each different court, and his constant research into the local conditions that can influence potential decisions and deals made him exactly what we needed.

SUPER LAWYER
I hired Mr. Borhani in 2021 for a speeding ticket, issued by a CHP traveling on 101 freeway, the citation was for excessive speed (90+). Honestly speaking I don't know how he did it, case was dismissed. I would highly recommend him.

Speeding ticket dismissal
He's always kept in touch, have explained to me exactly the steps he was going to take into working with my speeding ticket. He did exactly what he told me he was going to do, and he got my case dismissed. Can never be happier. And for a fraction of the cost of what other Lawyers/firm would charge? Definitely worth it getting consultation and Hiring Mr. Borhani.
