We make sure we get the best results for our clients, which may include punitive damages and attorneys' fees.

Besides practicing law, I am the mother of two beautiful girls, and wife to a very hard-working man.  In my spare time, I run, cook, read, volunteer at our church, local Armenian organizations, and school!

Employment Law Consultation with Jibit Cinar
I can’t thank Jibit Cinar (Employment Attorney in Orange County CA) enough for her help with a possible case my mom and I came to her with. She took time out her busy day to consult with us and gave us some excellent and very well thought out advice and came up with some brilliant ideas that will help protect someone very special in our family! I am so happy I called her and just wish I hadn’t waited 2 years to do so! If we need to hire her to litigate this Employment Law case we wouldn’t hesistate! If you or someone you know has been wronged or injured and you are just not sure whether you have a case, do yourself a favor and call her at Gokal Law in Orange County CA to find out!!

We hired Jibit 1 1/2 years ago for a home health care case, and we won. She is so knowledgeable with the law and how to use it to her clients advantage. I will be forever grateful and I recommend her, 100%.

Entering into negotiations takes a good listener. Jibit is excellent communicator and listener. She pulled together all my information quickly. I would recommend her to any of my clients and friends.

She is outstanding, smart and determined!
I spent about ten years working as a legal assistant and have observed the workings of a law firm. Jibit Cinar excels all I have experienced. We have experienced several years of wrongful treatment by a Senior Mobile Home Park causing us extreme hardship, financial loss, and emotional distress due to harassment and wrongful, selective enforcement of park rules. We were unable to find an attorney who would take our case. None had the "insight and determination" that we found when we finally met Jibit Cinar. She is a smart, knowledgeable attorney and a great communicator. She sizes up the situation quickly and takes action. The amazing thing I observe is that Jibit has a heart along with her smarts. She wanted to help us! We have been kept appraised of the progress of our lawsuit. When she says she will have a response in two weeks that is what she delivers. We have been extremely pleased with the manner in which she has represented us. We feel extremely blessed to have found Jibit Cinar!
