Greatness as a lawyer and person
On October 20, 2023, I was informed by Agavni Tulekyan that she would be representing me in my resentencing hearing. She stated that being recommended by CDCR was a huge honor and she wanted to do her best to assist me in receiving the most successful outcome. Ms Agavni was able to follow through with everything she had sais would happen. Being incarcerated for twenty -four years for committing a senseless armed robbery gave me plenty of time to reflect on my past actions. I remained hopeful that one day I would be acknowledged for my actions of today and not be labeled for my past. I know there were times when hopelessness seem to prevail and the Three Strikes Law would not allow me to reap any of the new existing changes in the law. I stayed the course because I had developed a way of being that brought me peace and satisfaction... My hard work paid off. However, Ms. Agavni was instrumental executing her plan to have me released before the holidays. She kept her word and I am eternally grateful for her professionalism and caring attributes. Very sincerely, Michael Del villar

Excellent experience
Agavni Tulekyan was an excellent attorney. First time I have ever needed an attorney and it was such a relief to have someone as hands on as her. I would receive constant updates on my case so I knew what was happening at all times.

My savior
From the very beginning Ms Tulekyan gave me a sense of confidence that no matter the outcome of my resentencing hearing she was going to give me the best representation possible. I had 86 years so I was mindful of the uphill climb we were facing. Ms Tulekyan and her equally talented team thoroughly went through my case factors and developed a strong argument of why I should be resentenced. The court ultimately ruled in my favor reducing my 86 year sentence to time served. I had done a little over 16 years. There’s no doubt in my mind that it the only reason I’m here, a free man, is because of Ms Tulekyan. She went above and beyond the call of duty ensuring that I had the best representation possible, but she also included me in the process. With a patient and compassionate heart she communicated with me in a way that made me feel secure. Once of the most knowledgeable, energetic and fierce defense attorneys in the game for sure. She gave me my life back and I couldn’t be me inspired and overjoyed about rebuilding my life. Thanks Ms A!!!

Miss Tulekyan did a thorough job on getting my husband’s sentence reduced. She did a complete evaluation of him and had 2 others on her team to help her and to work with my husband. He had an excessive sentence. His sentence was reduced and he was released. I would definitely recommend her.

She's a superstar ✨️
Ms. Agavni Tulekyan, is by far the best attorney I have ever worked with she helped with the sealing of my record. She was very aggressive in the court room. She was a kind and very respectful person when talking to me. She knew how to stand up for me whenever necessary and will argue any objections she had with the D.A.'s statements. That's what made me like her alot. I would recommend her to anybody and everybody that is in need of legal assistance.

Grateful
Looking for a lawyer with experience, I asked my friend about his. I've heard a success was a pretty good chance. Speaking with Ms Agavni, we spoke on my concerns. A plea deal was offered with Ms Agavni's help I was able to get a better deal. Sincerely, I appreciate it. The time she spent on the case, communicating and getting ready for court. Her efforts and outcome to help me was pretty awesome. Really appreciate your help Ms Agavni and would recommend her.

I Believe in Avagani
I am ever so grateful for the services and commitment I received from Attorney Agavni Telekyan, Ms. "A". I was serving a 3 life sentencing that was reduced to 39 to life, running concurrently. My sentencing board date was 2041. At that point I felt very hopeless, with no direction or purpose. In 2021 I heard about the 1170.03 recommendation for resentencing. One of my CDC instructors reached out to the the Secretary of Sacramento to review my file. April 14, 2022 I received a letter from The Honorable Sam Ohta Supervising Judge of the Superior Court County of Los Angeles, basically recommending my sentence be recalled and resentenced. I began to feel hope once again. June 28, 2022 I received a letter from the Law Office of Agavni Telekyan informing me they have been appointed to represent me in the resentencing proceeding. By July 2022 I was contacted by Sarah Rodriguez, Ms ”A"'s assistant to inform me of the proceedings to follow. Shortly after that contact I had a video chat with Ms Avagani to review the recommendations of resentencing. She was very thorough in making sure she had all the necessary information before she presented my case to the court. She explain every detail of the process in a way that I clearly understood and answered every question I had. She treated me with the utmost respect and responded to all my phone calls in a timely manner. We had several consultation via video chats, as she continued to keep me updated and informed throughout the entire proceedings. I was so surprised that my court hearing was set for October 5, 2022. And I was released from the CDC on October 12, 2022. It is unbelievable and a blessing that this entire process took approximately 6-7 months. I and my family are ever so grateful for the commitment and diligence of Ms Agavni and her team, the courts and Honorable Judges. I've been given another chance at life to be a Father and Grandfather and will always value that. I am commiting to be the best man I can be in this society. And also want to give Glory to God. Ever so grateful Vincent Audelo and family.

Knowledgeable defense attorney
Facing criminal charges is hard enough , specifically when there serious and 25 to life is a real possibility.After 3 years thanks to Agavni and her experience in the court room I was freed just as she predicted.the legal system can be very stressful but with an attorney who is constantly going over the case with you , strategizing and always picking up your collect calls no matter the day or time it takes just a little bit of that stress off your shoulders cause you see your attorney cares.that was my attorney.

You Won't Go Wrong With Agavni
Facing criminal charges for the first time was shocking and a very serious matter for me and my family. After having numerous consultations with different attorneys that either wouldn't give my case the time of the day or simply gave me a bad vibe and made me feel like all the wanted was to collect a retainer fee and will see what happens. I was blessed to come across Agavni the minute she answered my call she gave me her undivided attention and answered all my questions that I had without mentioning a retainer. She was very knowledgeable, attentive and always had a strong line of communication with me and my family. Agavni was always fighting for the best possible outcome and for me. and that was going home. With Agavni in my corner I was able to get through my situation and go home after being told by numerous attorneys that I was definitely going to do some serious time. If you want results you need Agavni in your corner thank you Agavni I 'am eternally grateful for your help.

Thank goodness for Agavni
Recently I was involved in an unfortunate event and had to seek a criminal defense attorney. I was so stressed and had no experience with this kind of manner. Luckily I was referred to Agavni. From our first consultation, I appreciated Agavni's quick understanding of my case, her patience, and her willingness to explain the legal procedures. Through every correspondence we had I could tell she honest, reliable and committed to the case. I appreciated that she reminded me to make decisions that were in my best legal interest, something that was surprisingly difficult for me in the fog after the incident. She also was realistic about potential outcomes of my case, which I found very valuable. Agavni went above and beyond my expectation and was able to get my case dropped before being filed, lifting a huge weight off of my shoulders. I feel so fortunate to have had Agavni help me through this stressful time in my life, and would recommend Agavni to anyone who is seeking solid representation in their case.

Beyond excellence
Agavni showed a level of professionalism and care during an extremely traumatic case lasting 9 months that I will never forget. She consistently delivered wise, measure counsel and provided me with options and unbiased guidance for my decision making. Having never been involved in a criminal case the process was intimidating and initially confusing. Agavni immediately recognised my concerns and reassured me every step of the way. During the process Agavni was the only person I knew I could fully trust. She fought for me every step of the way, never once wavering, was always by my side and ultimately got all the spurious charges dropped. I owe Agavni a debt of gratitude that goes far beyond that of any monetary compensation. If you find yourself in an unfortunate situation where a criminal lawyer is required, I couldn’t recommended Agavni highly enough.

Best lawyer in town!
Agavni represented me against 2 criminal charges. Even though I live 100 miles away from the court she was able to work with me via email and phone. She’s very honest, reliable, and works hard for you. she didn’t promise me anything but she did give me best/ worse case scenario. Fortunately, for me she was able to dismiss both counts. I will forever be grateful to Agavni Tulekyan. Hire her! best decision I ever did.
