Let me tell you a little something about Mrs. Ninaz Saffari and the house staff...they are a true breath of fresh air!! My husband and I found their website and spoke with Mr. Mark Russ who basically runs that office and he just made us feel so comfortable over the phone...we live in rancho cucamonga and their office is in L.A. We were looking for someone local but after speaking with Mark we did not mind the 45min-1hr drive. when we met with Ninaz and her team she listened, took her time, asked lots of questions and details, let us ask lots of questions, and broke the whole process down for us. Before we hired Ninaz my husband had a public defender who refused to even look at me, let alone answer 1 of my questions; as a wife, you course want to be involved and informed especially when ur husband is being accused and facing 9-20... Ninaz always kept me involved in some way, where I didn't even feel like I needed to ask much because she was always very informative and always took her time. We never felt rushed at our first meeting, she didn't spend her time looking at the clock or her watch to see if our time was up, she made sure she had all the facts and details and answered our questions. From the beginning we always felt very comfortable, she was always honest and she doesn't have a conceited arrogant typical attorney attitude that you see usually, but those guys are very confident and made us feel good and positive. she always made sure she told us what we could be looking at if things didn't work in our favor and always gave us an honest opinion never sugar coated things or got pushy or rude. after walking out of their office my husband and I decided in the elevator that we definitely wanted to go with them. Ninaz and the staff are very professional and hard-working, they know their stuff, and believe me they work their asses off. their dedication shows through their work, and their interest in your case is so reassuring. They were always working on the case and looking for witnesses and calling the witnesses, and subpoenaing the witnesses when they had to. they are always prepared and never leave you hanging. They treat you like a person who is honestly dealing with a life-changing matter, not just a dollar sign. our case went to trial, and Ninaz is like a mike tyson with what comes out of her mouth; she is so well prepared and has such a strong team backing her that she is a little spitfire in court, and she will argue to the death!...there were a few times where we thought we were going to have to bail her out! lol, but honestly, they are great. they were a blessing for us, and we could not be any more thankful and grateful that we found them...my husband is 100% not guilty of what he was accused of, but we are 100% sure that we would not have beaten that case with his public defender. we did not just win because we were always telling the truth but because they worked their asses off for us and went above and beyond proving my husband's innocence. My husband and I will forever be grateful to them. Ninaz and Mark are amazing, and we just could not have been happier. we were way beyond ourselves when we beat the case and are glad it's over, but I would be lying if I told you we didn't miss them.
