Definitely recommend!
I submitted a contact inquiry online and I received a call within minutes. I did a consultation over the phone and signed a retainer right away. Not once did I feel alone or clueless as to what was going on with my case. I never had to call the attorney asking for case status because he would call me. Client communication is great! I always look at reviews when wanting to decide if I should go through with something/someone and I hope my review convinces someone to stop looking and hire Bardia!

Amazing
For my first time hiring a lawyer it was a little intimidating. Bardia was very calming and reassuring to speak to as well as being very professional. He instantly instilled trust with his calm demeanor. He also worked diligently to resolve matters. I would highly recommend him in the future.

Hear ye, hear ye - the good lawyer
Feeling like you need to bring lawyers in can be really uncomfortable. I had never worked with a lawyer before and was incredibly nervous, however Bardia was incredibly compassionate, calm, and informative even when I was freaked out. Bardia took time to ensure that my story was heard, to help me understand what his team could do, what he could not guarantee, and what potential outcomes could look like. He and his team were so reliable and would be sure to follow up every step of the way. Additionally, they took measures when things were settled to make sure that I was taken care of and protected. While I’m sorry I had to take action like this, I’m glad I went to Akhavan and Associates as they were incredibly professional and human - understanding. I am incredibly grateful for all of their hard work.

Professional, Polite and a true fighter!
Bardia Akhavan is by far one of the most professional, courteous, and effective attorneys. One of my good friends referred me to Bardia to see what he had to say. Bardia immediately shared remorse with me and got upset at my situation like as if it had happened to him or a family member. He immediately took some notes, looked at my case, and said he would help me. I was shocked! It was not the answer I was expecting after consulting with 2 other attorneys with almost double his age! He immediately started the process and was really honest about everything and even told me it may take a long time to get justice. Bardia Akhavan and his team are hands down the most professional and intelligent employment law attorneys I have ever worked with. I went to two others that didn’t even care a human was sitting in front of them. Bardia actually cared and tirelessly fought for my rights which was unbelievable and I was very happy with the results. Thank you again to you and your team!

Incredible Firm
After endless calls to different firms for my case, Bardia Akhavan was the only attorney who really understood my situation. Bardia took his time to get every single piece of information down, and made sure I was comfortable and at ease during each step of his strategy. His advice and understanding of the law was beyond impressive, and would always go out of his way to ensure I understood all aspects of my case, from his approach to winning my case to explaining any legal terminology to me that was unclear. I never felt out of the loop and always felt that Akhavan & Associates were constantly in my corner giving me the best representation one can ask for. I highly recommend Akhavan & Associates to any person. Thank you again for taking my case and the amazing settlement I received!

Excellent Employment Attorney
I was referred to Bardia Akhavan by some friends and I was extremely happy with the result. Bardia wasn’t like other attorneys who pretended to do employment law without knowing anything about it. You could tell immediately by the way he talks on the phone that he has answers. Bardia’s expertise was clear in the way he explained things to me and kept me informed of my case. I ended up with a dollar figure that I would have never expected. I would highly recommend him for anyone having issues at work

Teacher
I felt very confident during depositions and at all times that my story would be told and that my lawyer was protecting my interests. My lawyer treated me with respect and consideration following a difficult job situation, and he never forgot that it was my life, my story. Mr. Akhavan was extremely competent, professional and polite. I didn't have to worry about the opposition or their lawyers, and it was evident to them that my lawyer had the situation under control. I would recommend Mr. Akhavan to anyone with a similar legal problem without hesitation.

I am grateful to have met Bardia in law school and continue working with him on cases after law school. His clients are very lucky to be represented by him and are undoubtedly in great hands. He understands the law, and articulates his clients experiences and mistreatment in the workplace in a legally sound and full proof way. Bardia raised the bar for all attorneys."

"Bardia is extremely well-versed in his field of law. He is personable and empathetic. But, importantly, he is assertive and aggressive where he needs to be. He is an excellent choice for advocate, lawyer, and counsel."
Employment and labor Attorney | Jan 04

"I've worked with Mr. Akhavan on a number of matters and he's always been on top of everything. He has and always will be a pleasure to work with."
Employment and labor Attorney | Dec 17
Relationship: Co-worker
"Working with Bardia has been an absolute pleasure. Bardia has always conducted his practice and professional relationships with compassion and integrity. He is not only very skilled but knowledgeable in employment law. In fact, I frequently consult with him about nuance and difficult legal issues. If you are looking for individualized representation and not your ordinary run of the mill operation, look no further. Bardia approaches each case methodically with a fearlessly calculated attitude to ensure maximum recovery. Bardia is devoted to his clients and takes the time to hear their story, fight their battle, and deliver justice. I highly recommend Bardia."
Employment and labor Attorney | Dec 15
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I have had the pleasure of knowing Bardia on a personal and professional level, and can attest to his passion for his life’s work, unrivaled advocacy, and zealous devotion to those lucky enough to be called his clients. Bardia is personable and empathetic—understanding the importance of keeping clients comfortable, and fully-apprised of their rights during a stressful employee-employer dispute. However, his amicable nature is not to be mistaken for gentleness. Bardia is a witty, fierce negotiator, and unlike many attorneys (unfortunately), spends the time to deeply digest each of his clients’ cases. As counsel of an interstate company, I regularly consult with Bardia to ensure compliance with employment and labor regulations, in hopes that I can avoid a lawsuit from a high-caliber firm like Akhavan & Associates. He is a 1%’er in my book and I provide my highest recommendation to any prospective client or co-counsel considering Bardia and his team at Akhavan & Associates."
Employment and labor Attorney | Dec 15
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Mr. Akhavan is not only a dear friend of mine, but someone who I truly admire as an outstanding role model, professional, and advocate of the law, whose brilliance, tenacity, and leadership qualities help separate him from his contemporaries in the field of employment law. Bardia is the epitome of a “people person”, whose interpersonal skills help him excel in conveying his message to people from all walks of life, whether it be articulating his arguments in front of a judge, negotiating settlements with opposing counsel, or building rapport with prospective clients. As an employer and member of the State Bar of California, I frequently ask Bardia for advice regarding the potential impact of employment law in the workplace, and I am never ceased to be amazed at his keen insight, litigation strategies, and attentiveness to detail. It is my privilege and honor to provide my highest recommendation to any prospective client considering Bardia and his team at Akhavan & Associates."
Employment and labor Attorney | Dec 13
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Bardia Akhavan is everything you want in an attorney- professional, extremely intelligent, compassionate, incredibly responsive and all around a brilliant attorney. I’ve referred a number of clients to him, all of whom had favorable results. I highly recommend Mr. Akhavan for your legal needs."
