“My experience with Pezhman as my lawyer was nothing but great. I was arrested on a few criminal charges and Pezhman helped me feel reassured and less stressed about my case from the beginning. He’s an intelligent and knowledgeable lawyer and choosing him as your attorney is a choice you will not regret ! If I ever would recommend an attorney to someone or if I ever needed an attorney again in the future, Pezhman would definitely be a first choice!”
