This guy is fantastic, caring, and professional. Even though I was worried throughout the whole process, I realized I didn't need to be because Dod was on top of everything.

I initially hired another lawyer off a friends recommendation who did nothing to be proactive with my case facing 2 felonies that the DA wasn't willing to offer a deal with. Dod not only went to the accident scene, took photos and video but immediately had me start attending daily AA meetings and provided the paperwork for signatures. He then had me volunteer to have a SCRAM anklet. It wasn't fun but those 2 things gave Dod the leverage to plead my 2 felonies to a misdemeanor DUI. Saving my job, my security clearance and no jail time. The lawyer I had prior it seemed was just hoping for the best.

In July 2016 I got arrested for illegal gun possession and was facing 4 years of prison time, in my defense I hired an LA based attorney (At first) to represent me in court, unfortunately this attorney ended up way under qualified in dealing with the prosecuting DA, he was terrible at communicating was late to every court date and to make matters worse the "deal" that he negotiated with the DA was no deal at all!
Feeling woefully under represented it was obvious I needed to hire someone else, someone local, someone more aggressive and more experienced with the San Diego court system.
Desperate for better representation, I called a number of local attorneys but ended up very impressed with Dod and even though I didn't even leave a message he called me back immediately! From the very beginning it was quite apparent that he was was the right attorney, he asked me all the right questions was honest and upfront with the facts and formulated a "game plan" to deal with my situation and his rates were reasonable, in general I felt like he knew what he was doing and in turn that made me feel like I could trust him with my life (literally!)
In the end he negotiated a great deal that included probation only with a few days of community that kept he me out of jail. I couldn't be happier!
It was the best money I have ever spent for my freedom.
Thank you Dod for all your help.

There are not enough stars to even begin to rate Mr. Ghassemkhani. He deserves so much more than a 5-star rating. This man is a blessing in my life. After having my first ever DUI/car accident (Thank God I did not hurt anyone) with a BAC of .27 and spending 18 hours in a holding cell. Being scared out of my mind and not knowing what was going to happen next I retained the services of Mr. Ghassemkhani. He assured me that if I listened to what he said and followed his instructions things will be better. I was so happy that he said if I ever had any questions I could call, email, or text him at any time. As my questions arose, Mr. Ghassemkhani was always very responsive and communicated with me in detail throughout the whole process. Because of his help with my case and following everything he told me to do the horror that I thought was awaiting me was lessened by Mr. Ghassemkhani’s knowledge of the legal system and his experience working with the DA, prosecutors, and judges. Mr. Ghassemkhani is a very well-respected professional within the Southern California legal arena and I strongly recommend that you contact him. He will fight for you and ease the pain in your time of need. If you are reading these reviews that means you need his help. So call him now, do not wait, listen, and do everything he says. You will not be sorry for retaining his services.
Thank you again Mr. Ghassemkhani

First and foremeost Mr. Ghassemkhani kept me out of jail. Even though it was only my first DUI my BAC was so high the DA demanded 120 days jail time. I was terrified. But, Mr.Ghassemkhani reassured me that if I followed his directions I would stay out of jail and he was right! I am so glad that I hired him to represent me. He helped make what could have been a nightmarish experience relatively painless. I highly recommend his services to anyone facing a tough DUI conviction.

What really struck me about Dod was that he was so calming. I was in a panic and scared after my dui arrest and as soon as I spoke with him over the phone, I felt a sense of calm come over me. He was so upfront with me and extremely easy to talk to. I couldn't have asked for anyone better!

Very affordable/reasonable. Very professional. Very reliable and most importantly he got the job done for me and in the end I had nothing but a BIG smile on my face. I totally appreciate his work and I would def.recommend him to any and everyone. My 1st offense with a .10 bac and he got it dropped to a wet reckless. BOMB.COM!! I am so very much thankful and appreciative of his work. One thing for sure he was ALWAYS there to answer any of my questions as well as responding back to me in a timely manner. He also made sure to keep me posted with everything that was going on with my case. And when he says that you'll never have to step foot in the courtroom thats exactly what he means. Not once did I ever have to see the judge myself, he handled everything for me and kept me posted with whatever was going on. I'm blessed and very thankful with the results and this whole process was a huge lesson learned. Thanks again for EVERYTHING Mr. Ghassemkhani!! You definitely hands down are thee best!!! :)

I can't thank Dod enough, he saved not only my drivers license but my health professions license as well. I had a DUI with refusal, walked away with a reckless driving. He couldn't have made the process any easier, very professional. He put me at ease and took care of everything without a hitch. Thank you so much Dod! I intend to never need your services again but so happy I found you in my time of need.

Having never been in trouble with the law before, I didn't know what to expect. I had heard horror stories of some of my friends who had gotten arrested and got an attorney and could never get a hold of him/her and felt like they were very low on their lawyer's priority list. Dod is the opposite. You can tell he loves what he does and he is extremely attentive, always gets back right away, and puts you at ease with your situation and keeps you updated at each step along the way. He goes above and beyond and I can see why he gets such high reviews. I was in fear of my life being ruined because of an arrest and he "saved the day" (not to sound cliche). When facing charges, etc., it is a very frightening situation. Dod walked me through it and made it so much less scary and it ended up coming to a very favorable conclusion. I couldn't have made it through without his extensive knowledge, expertise, professionalism and care. Word's can't express how great of an attorney he is.

Dod is a great attorney lots of experience and always there for you with answers to your questions and the status on your case what else would you want. He is polite and brings you up to date on your case. Very reasonably priced and worth it. we got through my case expeditiously without any BS. Right to the point and what I needed to get done for him and get to him. If he tells you to do something follow through on it and get it done any of the items he needs get them to him right away. Don' screw around! He will be honest with you and get done what he tells you he will get done!! great follow through. Make time to meet him at least once preferably twice He will go out of his way to that. He worth the money. I know when you are shoppong atty's for your 1st or 2nd or more it's hard to make a choice. I hope you land on my review. It was my 2nd and swear last DUI and it was a flip of the coin. I made the right choice. Lucky. for. lucky for you. I 70 yrs old. No fun. Wife hated my guts. So you should have seen the turmoil I was going through. I made the rite choice. And had to o sell my toy CL 500 AMG. Fast as hell and in perfect condition. I gave it away.!!! Good luck. Chose Dod. P you will be happy.
