This case was handled with consistent communication throughout. I was made aware of clear steps to follow and received help along the way. Mr. Ghassemkhani is professional and extremely helpful.

Like most people in that DUI situation, I was very nearly overwhelmed by what I had done and what I needed to do. Dod was recommended to me by a friend of 30 years, a former Public Defender. During our first phone call, he immediately set my stressed nerves at ease. From that point on, he was a very vocal proponent for my case. While he's done thousands of cases, he still convinced me that he fully understood the broad ramifications of my particular situation. He aggressively represented my interests with both the DMV and the Court. Though it was a long shot, he got my DUI charges dismissed in favor of a lesser offense. It was an enormous achievement and was the only good news I had received since my DUI arrest.
Don't hesitate. Call this man the moment you know what you are up against. I can assure you that HE will know what the two of you will need to do. He is an outstanding professional in every respect. Best decision you can possibly make.

When I first got my DUI, I sat down with 4 different law firms to get an idea of who I thought would be my best choice. Dod immediately stood out to me as someone who was a go-getter, understood the DUI process, and was willing to work to get my business. He clearly explained the entire process, let me know that he would always be available, and would do ALL the heavy lifting pertaining to my case. He stood by those words, and I walked out of court this morning with a Wet Reckless, a substantially reduced fine, reduced probation, and a smile on my face. I would hire him again in an instant.

I was so nervous because of the terrible mistake I made to drink and drive that I felt like I couldn't do anything and would be going to jail. I consulted some other attorneys and ended up feeling even worse. Thank goodness I contacted Attorney Ghassemkhani who reassured me from the beginning and took care of everything! I didn't even have to miss any work and he was very reasonable. He worked hard for me and got me a reduced sentence! I will be forever grateful and will recommend this attorney in the future to anyone in my situation. Thank you!

I got a DUI, hit and run in October 2016. I have a family and was worried I was going to jail, would lose my job and my family would suffer because of my stupid decision to drive that night. I hired Mr. Ghassemkhani. He guided me through the whole process. He took care of everything while informing and guiding me through the process. I didn't even step in the courtroom. My hit and run charge was dismissed and DUI fine reduced by $1000. I have to do a few classes and pay the fine but no jail time and I didn't lose my job. My kids still have no clue this happened. Thank you so much. You are a life saver

I was referred to Attorney Dod from a co-worker's friend that had used him on an assault case. He was able to get that case dismissed. I was charged with the same thing. I am in the military and i was involved in a fight at a bar. I was charged with several felony charges. He was able to get my charges all reduced to a single misdemeanor with some anger management classes. He answers every call, text, or email immediately. Thank you!!

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
