Physician highly recommend this Attorney.
I am a physician recently had Mr. Kouretchian reviewed two of my physician-employment contracts. I am highly impressed by his thoroughness, knowledge, and experience. More importantly, he is honest, truthful, and above all, fair. He clearly demonstrated caring, compassion, and empathy towards his client through his dedicated work. For a lawyer, these are very rare characters and values to be acknowledged by member of the general public. Through his work, I recently signed to join a great medical group in Imperial Valley. I am very happy with this decision. Of note, the lawyers and administrators of the medical group were highly impressed by Mr. Kouretchian's work when I had them reviewed the final contractual agreement. They incorporated many changes that Mr. Kouretchian suggested. So, without any reservations, I will be recommending Mr. Kouretchian to my physician colleagues as well as others who seek fair and honorable legal representation.

Excellent support and understanding
Bobby worked with me to understand the dispute and then tried to mediate the issue with the other person. When this did not result in a settlement, he worked very diligently to get me to understand what to do next and how to proceed. He set up the paperwork and provided information on how to act and present the case. The case is now assigned a court date.

Exceptional Lawyer
Bobby was wonderful in representing me in my case. He listened to what the needs were and came up with very effective strategies, which he implemented exceptionally. The outcome of our case was way better than I ever could have expected, and that is all due to Bobby.

Best experience with a difficult subject
Mr.Kouretchian was wonderful to work with. He was very thorough and we felt confident all areas in our Estate Planning were covered. He was very thoughtful in how he approached delicate issues that involve us pondering our mortality which is difficult to reflect on. We are so happy to now have this in place and could not be happier with our choice of lawyers.
