Very good at what she does!
Najda went through every step and detail with me along the way of my case. Definitely knows what she is doing with DUI’s. She also offered a payment plan that she worked with my situation with which was a huge help for me. I cannot thank her enough for what she’s done for me. I would definitely recommend her to everyone looking for a criminal attorney.

Najda handled my case in my best interest. Always kept me in the loop and let me call all the shots, but not before giving me her advice. I am very grateful for everything she did and for the outcome of my case as it was the best possible. Thank you again Najda.

DUI
Got myself into trouble with a dui and I hired Najda as my lawyer to see if she could help me beat my case. She was about business told me everything straight worst case scenario. She attended all of my court days on my behalf always kept me in the loop what was going on. She is really all about her clients, her clients come first she is the real deal and what you expect from an attorney! As time went on she helped me beat my dui case and got it switched to a “wet reckless” will forever be grateful for her and what she did for me!

Najda had a lot of patience with my case. She not only was an attorney but was also there as someone to listen to my concerns and worries. She number one, kept me out of custody. She also appeared on my behalf at all court dates. Thank you again Najda!!

First offense DUI
Najda is, clearly, highly knowledgeable in her field. My case was, pretty obviously, an open and shut win for the criminal justice system, but she was still able to wrangle reduced charges charges for me despite the obvious facts leveled against myself. Would highly recommend.

Najda Kazarian A Go To!
Najda was able to work with payment plans, understood my immigration situation, was compassionate enough to understand the WHOLE story. It was a trying / growing time with me. With doubt in my mind, everything turned out to be successful. My case will be clear next year! I am so ready for the next chapter in my life. Najda, thank you!

Undisputed for a reason
Hands down the best attorney I’ve ever had and pulled through and handle all legal proceedings exactly how one would expect an attorney to do there job in every aspect. She was there every step of the way and gave me that breath of fresh air when it got rough and then delivered the exact results that I had wanted which was just another win for her record that has yet to be beaten in courts. I highly recommend mrs. Kazarian and will not hesitate to give her a call again should I need to. As far as cost for services go. You get what you pay for but on that note she was extremely understanding and works with her clients and she’s just an all around phenomenal attorney.

Reccomended
Najda was a very thorough and helpful attorney with a lot of experience. She offered insight, appeared in court for me, and even offered text support when facing tough times. With her help I was able to recieve a minimal sentence and most importantly stay out of custody. I would highly reccomend Najda to anyone. Thanks again!

Nadja was a blessing I found her through the internet looking for a criminal attorneys. And I was blessed I found her so quickly It was like somebody sent me to the right person with only one phone call I didn't have to look around and we spoke over the phone she gave me her time to speak what I had to speak about and it was a very long story she probably heard the scaredness and fear in my voice and I was brutally honest about myself and the embarrassment I felt for receiving my DUI I never received a DUI before or even been arrested And that was the first time and the last time for me I'm just a student I work part-time I have two kids to raise with little money and she was great she worked with me knowing that I didn't have a lot of money to put up front she felt something that I was feeling and she felt that energy of the phone I met her and ultimately now almost can be two years later we finally completed finished off my sentencing she lowered down my sentence and without her I would not have been able to drive for as long as I did I continue to work for over a year and she did great I'm going to court for me and representing me I did not have to show up and be there thank you I want to thank you And I want to say that in life we all make mistakes but learning from them is hard to do sometimes but if done it's a great lesson and I'm just glad that since this happened to me I'm just glad that I found my attorney that I did thank you God bless and stay well I will talk to you soon
