  • Abbas Hadjian

    I am a family law practitioner in Southern Califirnia and met Camelia first by her reputation in the Persian community in San Jose and Bay area. Attorneys and non-attorneys praised her integrity, honesty, knowledge of law and dependability. This became proven to me recently when I had a chance to work with her in a family law case. She is professional, balanced, and fair. I am pleased to endorse and recommend her on any areas of her expertise, family law, taxation and probate.
