  • Baback Kouretchian

    Archie is the kind of attorney that elevates the legal profession, as a whole, and makes all attorneys look better. He is kind, friendly, and very easy to talk to. He takes pride in his work, and sticks to what he knows best-- business and real estate law. His clients speak very highly of him, as can be evidenced by the many great reviews on various other legal sites. I strongly endorse him.
