Took the stress out of my accident!
After getting in a car accident Hovik was recommended to me by a family member. He immediately instructed me how to proceed and stopped the insurance calls. I was impressed on how knowledgeable Hovik is, and appreciated that he took the time to make me understand what was going on. Getting a larger than expected check from the insurance company was nice too. I hope I never get in a car accident again, but if I do I know who my first call will be!

Excellent guidance and advice. He truly cares!
Hovik is the type of attorney every client needs! He is on top of his cases, always super prepared and excellent at giving advice and guiding you thru the process. He was always there to answer any of my questions and always addressed my concerns. The more trust I put in him to do what he does best, the more amazing my results were. He truly cares about his clients and fights for whats right for them. It's very difficult finding a responsive lawyer, so make sure you stick with Hovik!

Client Irina Dali
Got into car accident recently and was referred to Oganes by my friend. What could I say? Oganes is a remarkable attorney who has incredible knowledge in his field, who is always available to you and has your best interest. I was so frustrated and nervous after accident. Oganes made me feel welcome and treated me like a friend when I came to his office. Right away I had a feeling that he’ll be there for you until the end. If you need an attorney who is knowledgeable, informative, professional, caring, efficient and the same time so nice and with the great personality- Oganes is the one you are looking for. I will definitely recommend him to everyone. Our case has not been fully resolved, but we are near

My favorite attorney!
Dealing with a lawsuit is stressful in itself and I was dreading having to "shop" around for a good attorney. From our first meeting, Oganes relieved my worries and I was sure that I'd landed in the right hands. His professionalism, punctuality and thorough follow ups were something I had missed when dealing with other attorneys... and he did it all wearing a smile! I have recommended Oganes to loved ones and they, too, have been impressed with his continuous dedication to his clientele. Oganes continues to exceed expectations and I will definitely turn to him in the future if caught in a bind.

My experience with Oganes was all positive. I hired him for a personal injury case and he was constantly on top of things and made sure that I was aware of what was happening. He really knew his craft in and out and made you feel confident about your case. Since then I have told my friends and family members to go this guy. Definitely recommend him!

Always there when you need him
Oganes is awesome! He is helpful, patient and diligent in helping clients. He helped us in reviewing and completing the purchase of our home. Even after the purchase he helped by reviewing lease agreements and completing background checks on potential tenants. If you are in need of assistance, please consider him, I'm very happy I did!

Accident case
My coworker referred me to Mr. Oganesyan for my car accident . Mr. Oganesyan won my case with the settlement I didn't even expect. Now my husband hired him for his car accident while driving as an UBER driver. The case is still in the process, but we have peace i our mind that he will do his best to win the case. We receive an update via email every time when there is some news.

Knowledgable & Helpful attorney
A car drove into my side of the car while driving on the freeway. During the case, the guy who hit me tried to say that we both changed lanes at the same time. My attorney was able to justify that I was not at fault and got me all the help and medical coverage I needed to recover and go back to work. Very pleased with the outcome.
