Personal Injury
Rastin is a great lawyer. I have him working on my case presently and I trust that he will work out the best possible outcome for me and my family. I would highly recommend him and the Victory Law firm to handle your legal affairs. He gives you everything you need to know.

Good traffic ticket representation
Did as well as expected, communicated well throughout. Even though the positive outcome I got was in great part definitely up to random chance, I credit him for it nonetheless due to an excellent strategy that he employed in my defense.

Best criminal defense attorney in the Bay area
Mr.Ashtiani represented my aunt in a complex case and was able to get the verdict that we all think she deserved. He was able to bring out the truth in the case and show my aunt's character to get the best verdict! On behalf of my family, I would like to thank Mr.Ashtiani!!

Money well spent
Great Attoney..I would highly recommend Rastin to anyone facing a criminal charge. In fact if I could go back I would have used him in my child custody case as well. He was extremely professional, honest, and thorough .. Attoney fees and rates are ridiculously high.. Fortunately , I only had to pay a flat rate-I def got more than my money's worth;)

Thank You Attorney Ashtiani for Cleaning My Criminal Record!
I hired attorney Rastin Ashtiani Wallin & Klarich to clean my criminal record. I was convicted of a misdemeanor in Los Angeles County a few years ago, and wanted to expunge this conviction from my record. Attorney Ashtiani from Wallin & Klarich took care of all the paperwork and court appearances for me. I never had to appear in court, and the court granted my motion. Thank you Wallin & Klarich and thank you attorney Ashtiani for taking care of me.

Ticket dismissed
I was charged with a speeding violation in Los Angeles County. I contacted and retained the law firm of Wallin & Klarich to fight this ticket on my behalf. My attorney with Wallin & Klarich explained the court process to me, and discussed the potential outcomes and consequences of this violation. My attorney went through my case with me in detail, and appeared in court without me having to be there. Wallin & Klarich was successful in getting my citation dismissed. As a result, I did not have to pay a fine to the court, and my driving record was not negatively impacted.

Helped Me Receive Spousal Support from Spouse
After being served with divorce papers, I was at a lost as to what I needed to do next. My spouse tried to prevent me from receiving support, and I felt hopeless. I contacted Wallin & Klarich, and met with Attorney Rastin Ashtiani. From the beginning, Mr. Ashtiani was patient with me and took the time to explain the divorce process to me. Mr. Ashtiani filed all the necessary paperwork, and appeared with me in court. His professionalism and support gave me confidence. I realized I was no longer alone. Ultimately, the court ruled in my favor, and my spouse was ordered to pay me support. Thank you Mr. Ashtiani!

Mr. Ashtiani Really Fights for His Clients
I tried for many months to resolve my family law issues in court on my own. At every turn my requests would be denied by the court. After much frustration with the court process, I hired Attorney Rastin Ashtiani to handle my case. He explained the law to me, and gave me a better understanding of the court process. Mr. Ashtiani was able to reach a positive settlement on my case without dragging the matter on over a long period of time. I am thankful to Wallin & Klarich, and Attorney Rastin Ashtiani for helping me get through this difficult time.

Attorney Ashtiani Helped Me Gain Full Custody of My Child
My child’s mother moved out of the state with our child without my permission, and would not allow me to have any meaningful contact with my son. I contacted Wallin & Klarich, and Attorney Rastin Ashtiani. He went over my case with me, and filed all appropriate forms with the court. Mr. Ashtiani appeared and advocated on my behalf in court. Despite my ex-spouse’s demand that I not be given significant custody time with my son, Mr. Ashtiani was able to convince the court to give me primary physical custody. As a result, my son is now living with me. Thank you for assisting in getting my son back in my life!

Attorney Ashtiani Helped Me Gain Visitation Rights with My Kids.
I have made several mistakes in life, and abandoning my family was my worst decision. I was young and naïve at the time, and I never imagined how much I would regret making that choice. When I realized what I had done, I became aware of how much I needed my children. My wife was not willing to see how sorry I was. I tried to fix my mistake, and I even tried to reason with my ex-wife at court without an attorney, but I lost. In addition, I ended up with owing my ex-wife a lot of money in child support. I had everything against me, but I love my children, and I at least wanted to gain visitation rights. I understood that if I wanted to gain rights to see my children, I needed to hire a prestigious law firm with a reputable history in child custody matters. I conducted my research, and I found several options, but none of these options were able to gain my trust the way Wallin & Klarich did. I didn’t want to lose my kids again, and Wallin & Klarich showed me how much they cared and guided me in the right direction. Attorney Rastin Ashtiani was assigned to handle my case, and his help went beyond what I expected. He was able to reason with my ex-wife’s attorney, and both of us came to an understanding. Not only do I get visitation rights with my kids, but I get to see them every weekend. I sincerely appreciate the tremendous help of Wallin & Klarich, and I will always be grateful for the professional representation and support of attorney Ashtiani. Thank you!

Maybe not enough experience in DUI ?
Got me the worst possible outcome for a simple DUI. 9 Months class and highest fine. Hired Wallin & Klarich not Rastin Ashtianti.
