When I first met Vic Merjanian, I called him and asked him for legal advice regarding a food poisoning case in 2014. I had a severe case of Shigella from a restaurant in Newport Beach and was hospitalized for a couple of days and had to miss a week of school. I was worried because I did not know how I was going to pay for my hospital bills and was very concerned about missing classes during graduate school. When I called Mr. Merjanian for legal advice, he spent at least an hour of his time explaining the process for my specific situation and even forwarded my information to a top food poisoning lawyer who specialized in the current outbreak who knew how to help me. Mr. Merjanian could have easily taken my case for me, but he wanted to make sure I received the best lawyer for my case and put me in great hands. He is a hardworking, honest, intelligent lawyer who truly cares about his clients. I am always skeptical of lawyers in general and believed that some lawyers were only telling me what I wanted to hear, made me feel rushed, and didn't explain the possible outcomes. However, Mr. Merjanian spent a generous amount of his valuable time explaining the steps I needed to take for my individual case and told me step by step what to do next. He was honest about everything and proved to be a great resource in my situation. My hospital bills were taken care of, and I am now about 3 months away from graduating PA school. He was professional and gave sound, accurate legal advice. I trust Mr. Merjanian with his legal advice and would definitely recommend his work to others. Because of his work ethic and honesty, I felt privileged to be able to receive invaluable advice from him, and I know that many other clients are just as pleased with his work. Thanks for looking out for me and showing me you cared.
