She migrated to the United States from Tehran, Iran in 1980. She arrived in the United States with her family and experienced firsthand the sacrifices families make in order to come to the United States. Prior to her arrival, she had lived in England as well as Spain.

Attorney Arzani gained an in depth understanding of various cultures and their individual needs through her passion to explore the world. She represents clients from all over the world. It is one thing to be able to represent clients worldwide, it is another thing to be able to truly understand and relate to them.

Among her distinguished memberships are: the California Bar Association, American Immigration Lawyers Association and the Los Angeles Bar Association.
