My Angel
Unfortunately, in my adult life I have had a few too many run ins with various law enforcement agencies. Federal and state level. I retained other lawyers in the past and I got the same or worse results then if I would of used a public defender. One of my best friends introduced my to Alaleh Kamran. I was blessed with someone that fought for me like I never experienced in life. Not only did she fight for me like no other ever has. She will educate you about law and how it works and why she is doing whatever strategy she has prepared for the court date. She will stay in contact with family and friends with your permission to update them on the progress of your case. Her assistant Stella, is the perfect balance with Alaleh. Stella is professional and friendly with out being fake. I felt confident with speaking to either one of them. I didn’t feel like I was not important! I always felt priority to her office. I am a real client with a real review. Please trust me! I never had the results anywhere else that I did with this attorney. Thank you Alaleh! AMD

She’s been in practice so long and still hungry to win and help
Best lawyer in the world! I consider her part of my family. Believed me from the beginning said she would fight for me. No false promises from her just hard work and determination. I definitely recommended her to anyone in need of a determined lawyer who isn’t just out for a paycheck.

I am truly grateful to Ms. Kamran for everything she did for my sons case. She is very knowledgeable and I am so glad that she was our lawyer! I cried in her arms in joy as we walked out of the courtroom being so grateful that she did exactly what she said she would from day one. I hope you never need a lawyer, but if you ever do, Alaleh Kamran is your best bet.

Highly recommended
Alaleh is an amazing attorney. She dropped my case from felony to misdemeanor for running away from the police. I had no idea what to do since i was in detention waiting to see the judge. She came explained everything to me in french, as it's my mother's tongue, and got me out the same day. After couples of court date i was free. I got out with only a misdemeanor few days of community service as a felony would have permanently revoke my visa. As of today, i got charged with a DUI, so i'm trusting her again with my case. Once again my visa is in danger but i'm sure Alaleh is gonna do wonders. I recommended Alaleh to a friend and will do again to anybody who needs legal help.

Alaleh is amazing. She was recommended by a friend who she had done magic for, and then got my case dropped from a misdemeanor to a small fine. She also went above and beyond to make sure i would get the best possible outcome.

Alaleh Kamran came highly recommended from the mentors of my mentor. I had the best case scenario with my case and have decided to dedicate loyalty and exclusivity to her services. I joke around with my friends about her being "judge Judy's worst nightmare" but in all seriousness she doesn't take bullshit and it comes from a place of compassion.

Miracle Worker!
I sit at my desk in tears of gratitude for this amazing woman. Not only is she a brilliant attorney, commanding all of the respect she so richly deserves in and out of the courtroom, but she is a real human being. Relatable and comforting at a time when people need it most. I was referred to Alaleh by my dear friend of 20 years, prominent Las Vegas Criminal Defense Attorney, Mace Yampolsky for a young friend who was facing some very serious allegations. My friend was taken to jail and was scared beyond words. Within hours of speaking to this wonderful attorney, she had one of her people with my friend in jail, there to comfort him and let him know that he was in good hands. His bail was $500,000, and insurmountable figure for his family to comprehend, let alone produce. Less than 48 hours after being on the case, my friend walked out of jail having paid nothing. I know this isn't a typical story, but I watched this woman free my friend, and I can't thank her enough!

Compassionate attorney
Alaleh Kamran is a very professional, compassionate, caring and nonjudgmental attorney. As a mother it was very difficult for me to call and find a criminal defense attorney who would be caring and understanding. I callled so many different defense attorneys who could represent my son but did not feel I could trust any one of them taking care of him. Until I finally spoke with Alaleh whom was very genuine and compassionate. Every step of the way she was there protecting him and supporting me as well. She is awesome and I will recommend her in a heartbeat. Her kindness, generosity, compassion and professionalism is beyond words.

Great Defendant, great office
I have been represented by Alaleh over the past few years and throughout the course of our time working together, I have felt like a priority to her and her team. For starters, the office admin as a whole is organized, friendly, and always remembers who you are and your case. In terms of the legal services provided by Alaleh, I was extremely impressed by the vigilance of her research toward my case, and eagerness to seek out and apply any relevant details toward our defense. She always has her eyes on the prize, and uses all resources she has to ensure that her best has been done in your favor. Needless to say, no outcome is guaranteed, but it is reassuring to know that the defendant you hired is out there exploring all options to get the end result that you expect. Would recommend her services many times over again.

I had my doubts at first but....
I had to go to her for more a complicated matter, other than an ordinary car accident claim. I found her to be knowledgeable and highly capable of the specific line of work she is most qualified for. I can't get into too much detail here, but I would recommend her services to anyone with complicated cases. Type of cases that other lawyers shy away from.

This lawyer gave me back my future
I want to strongly recommend Alaleh Kamran to anyone in need of legal representation. Not only has it been a pleasure working with her (as good of an experience as going to court can be, anyway), but she also saved me from having a criminal conviction when I made a major, life-altering mistake. When I first contacted her office about my situation, I was devastated and couldn’t see any way out of my mess. She made herself available to meet with me within one business day and knew exactly what to do. She immediately went into crisis control mode, advising me on crucial next steps to ensure things worked out in my favor. And they did. She's continually made herself available as a resource throughout my entire ordeal. It's because of her that I was able to cleanly walk away from the worst mistake of my life and not have it impact my future in the devastating way it otherwise might have. I will be grateful for the rest of my life. If you need legal help, call her.

Alaleh Kamran
Alaleh has taken my issues in dealing with the law better than I have ever experienced. I knew after my first conversation with her that she new the law to the degree that I would be supported and protected with her at my defense. I would hire her and recommend her to anyone whom has been in a legal issues or is in trouble for the first time. I have seen here in many days of court representing me, and noticed the respect that all lawyer give her as well as the discomfort most lawyers have when they realize whom they will be competing with when she is defending against them.
