Not All Heros wear Capes
A 22 year old college student speaking here. It's commendable that Chris Kourosh Jafari not only provided legal guidance but also offered emotional support during a chaotic time. His role as a mentor and genuine concern for my well-being sets him apart, and the positive result achieved in my case alludes to his capabilities and effectiveness. I’m both lucky and grateful to have met him.

Won best outcome for 1st DUI
I was introduced to him by a referral which I do not regret at all. He sought his counsel on my first DUI. Despite this situation being incredibly unpleasant and anxiety, he reassured me by providing me what I needed to know, and understanding the possible outcomes. Given his expertise, he was able to win me the best possible outcome which I am very satisfied. Also, he stayed in engaged by answering my questions in reasonable time. He professionalism matches against any white glove like service anyone would expect. I highly recommend their service to anyone.

Case Dismissed!!
I hired Chris Jafari in July of 2021 and he was so nice and gave me simple instructions of doing 3 AA meetings a week to help my case which was easily manageable. My case took about 7 months to be over with but it was ALL worth it! Chris got my 2 DUI cases completed dismissed! I still can not believe it! Chris will fight hard for you and go to bat at the negotiation table! He worked so hard for me and truly is the BEST Lawyer when it comes to knowing the law. I would give him 100 stars if I could! I now can go on with my life. He saved me thousands of dollars in fees and all the BS they make you do for years on DUI cases. I am beyond satisfied and so grateful for his services of justice for the people! Thank you Chris!!

Gutsy, Mature and highly competent!
I have had the pleasure of knowing Chris Jafari for over 20 years! He is an aggressive, no nonsense lawyer that cares only about one thing: That which advances his client's goals and objectives. I have consulted with Chris Jafari on several matters and he has always gone out of his way to make sure we have been protected. If he has bandwidth for your case, you are lucky and you should hire him without hesitation!

Thank you.
Well, what can I say? No offense but it is really hard to believe in someone who knows laws better than you, this is the most popular and wise belief everybody has specially when it comes to lawyers and problem solving situation. You want to make sure and you are waiting for that friendly inner voice of yours to give you a confirmation that you are not wrong. The moment I stepped in Mr. Jafari’s office, I kept struggling with myself, am I in a right place? Did I made the right choice? Once the conversation started, I instantly started to realize the stress I had, was for nothing! and the feeling of confidence started to replace the feeling of Stress. Despite of his knowledge and confidence in his job which comes from experience and education, Mr. Jafari is an absolute example of human being, rare to find people nowadays, Confident, Expert and Trustworthy. I hope no one finds himself in need of a legal advice because of its stressfulness nature but if you think you do, he is the one you can definitely count on. Recommended? Of course. After such a long time struggling with such an important matter to me, now that I left his office, I feel like a balloon! Thank you Mr, Jafari for the time you spent with me and the advise you gave me. I appreciate you help, I really do. Thank you.

Attorney Chris Jafari, is exceptional at what he does, to say the least.
I had a consultation Chris for a family law matter which I was battling for almost 3 years. I was referred to Chris from a close family friend who had worked with him previously and said nothing but good things about his attorney. As I mentioned, for 3 years, I had been going back and forth to court with no means to an end. I was unable to find a suitable resolution for the case until I hired Chris. During the consultation, he asked me to paraphrase what has been going on and was an active listener throughout my whole story. Once he fully understood, he then asked what was important to me and the goal I wanted to reach. Chris was very honest from the very beginning about the likelihood of what my chances looked like. Chris did not make any promises he was not absolutely confident about, but stated he can try his best. Chris shows outstanding work ethic, a personable attitude and is always punctual. Before the hearing, Chris worked with me to ensure that I understood and felt confident about what was going keeping in mind what it was that I wanted out of the hearing. Although Chris did not make any promises to me, he made good on his word to try his best and walked me out of the court house with paper in hand to what I wanted and more! Chris is extremely professional and well educated on both family and criminal law. In addition, if a situation arises where both parties must communicate or come to an agreement, he is able to be of help keeping integrity and being personable and is very well priced for the quality of work he provides. He takes his cases very seriously and dedicates time to each and every one going above and beyond for his client. I could not have asked for a better attorney to represent me. My only regret is that I would have known and hired Chris 3 years ago and mitigate all the time wasted in court leaving empty handed with another court date to look forward to. If there is any question as to who should represent you for either family or criminal matters of the court, take my advice and look no further Chris is your guy!

Excellent attorney
I hired Chris and his firm to assist me with a case that another lawyer was not making any progress with. Chris's law firm, including his brother, go above and beyond to make sure that the right steps are taken to protect me and my rights as their client. Even after the case was over Chris followed up with me. I definitely recommend this attorney and their law firm.

Great Lawyer!
Chris is a very professional and knowledgeable lawyer. I retained his services to file a motion for early termination of my DUI probation. He helped me through the whole process and wrote a a very detailed declaration for my case. At the court session, he explained my case to the DA and the judge and how it is in the best interest of justice for my probation to be terminated. He is super competent and I could not be happier about the results. I will definitely recommend him to anyone in need of a DUI lawyer. THANK YOU CHRIS!

Thank you Chris...
... for guiding me through the stormy waters of a DUI with complications. I pray not, but would I hire you again? In a second. Why? Well, I could list qualities like experience, competence, responsiveness, guidance, but utmost for me, is my respect for actions taken by you in your youth to defend a man unable - thanks for sharing. And thank you Brother in Christ, Alex, for leading me to Chris.

Family Like Devotion To Case
My family has hired Chris Jafari more than once. There are so many reasons why someone should hire Mr. Jafari as their attorney. The cool calming ambience he sets when we met him was very helpful in these extremely serious unsettling situations. Chris is very experienced, intelligent, charming, and beyond all these strengths is his incredible interpersonal skills. Some people may use the term family loosely, however his devotion to our cases was uncanny. Chris kept fighting for me and even transferred my case to another courthouse for the deal I wanted. We truly valued his non-stop diligent efforts in all of our cases such that we will and have referred all of our friends to his more than capable hands. We cannot appreciate enough for all the work you did for us Chris as well as treating us like family. I truly emphasize you hire Mr. Jafari as your attorney if you want the best representation.

I have rated Chris very high, because he merits all my votes. I had a family case with him, before him, i interviewed 5 laywer firms, and work with 3 differnt lawyers in different times. Story short i spent so much money and results are partially corrected. And i meet Chris, and his assistant David. Both are increadibly good in team work. I cant stop thank God for giving me such blessing to meet them.
