Criminal Defense
Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may be charged with a first- or, second-degree offense. Second-degree offenses carry the least severe penalties, and first-degree crimes are the most serious. For example if you are charged with robbery in the first degree, you face a three-, six-, or nine-year prison sentence, but if you are charged with robbery in the second degree, you are looking at two, three or five years in prison. An experienced Los Angeles criminal defense attorney will work to get your charges reduced to a lower degree.
Personal Injury
Personal injuries are legitimately defined as the persistent harms and damage, be it tangibly, emotionally or psychologically. Someone could be accountable for the injury engendered through neglect, careless or irresponsible act. The various cases of personal injury taken to court, puts liability on the suspect to compensate for the accident and injuries, mostly in the monetary forms. The liability compensations are subject to the kind of mishaps and the preys’ suffering.
Car Accidents
The incidents in which two vehicles crash into each other by mistake of either party or by hard luck; are referred to as auto accidents. The reckless attitude while driving generally instigates such a collision. Auto accidents are the most common type of accident on the road from which people suffer. The exerted force in collision often results in dangerous injuries, serious damages and economic costs. Sometimes it even leads to the loss of life. An auto accident lawyer advises you regarding your rights and claims you owe to the other if you are responsible for it.

I had a minor legal issue and Arash and his team took care of it. Very professional and very knowledgeable with great service and compassion. He is the only lawyer I would ever refer to. I now keep him on retainer for all my legal issues.

Arash is such a wonderful compassionate attorney who listens carefully and gives every attention to details. Very pleased with the results and advise he has given me over the years. He is kind, courteous and professional. If you’re looking for a great attorney, look no more !!!

Arash Hashemi is an incredible attorney, with a ton of experience. He is an all-around amazing person and is extremely personable and bright. I highly recommend Arash for any criminal defense needs.

Arash Hashemi and his staff are amazing. Arash not only helped me with my legal problems, he also made sure I understood every step of the process. I highly recommend the Law offices of Arash Hashemi.

I’ve gotten to know Arash through a professional organization over the past 1.5 years. I was raised by a criminal defense attorney and grew up around the culture. Arash has a combination of humaneness/ warmth/ compassion and skill/ power/ competence that’s rare in attorneys (or anywhere, for that matter). He has worked with several coaching clients of mine who speak highly of him. When I need a criminal defense attorney in LA, Arash will be the first person I call.

A family member was charged with a misdemeanor and didn’t know what to do. He had never been in trouble and was very scared about the whole process. We shopped around for a lawyer but the fear didn’t go away until we got in touch with Arash Hashemi. He put our minds at ease. His staff and him are kind and very knowledgeable. They explained the whole process to us and answered all our questions. I highly recommend him!

f you’re looking for a professional attorney with knowledge of traffic laws Arash Hashemi is your guy. The consultation with him was very informative; he responded to my need and concerns. I was on my second offense regarding speeding and my ticket was $600.00 and I was denied traffic school and my insurance rates would go up too. He was able to get my speeding ticket dismissed and I was granted traffic school!!!
I have also referred him to a coworker (traffic violation) and friend (DUI)

I recently had a traffic citation for “excess of 100mph over the speed limit.” I contacted around 20-25 attorneys with the best reviews on Yelp to get their opinions on what I should do. Arash was BY FAR the most knowledgeable and confident out of everyone I spoke to. He brought up defenses and considerations that none of the other people had even mentioned. Thank you so much for all your help!

I was in need of some questions to be answered about something i was dealing with and Arash was more than helpful. I spoke with him and he informed me my case stats wasn’t his specialty but he still was willing to assist. That’s like going into a department store and someone saying, my apologies i don’t work in that department but I’m sure i can at least answer some questions for you…and he did just that.
The fact that i wasn’t brushed off or rude to really made me feel comfortable and it showed alot about his character being a lawyer. The day you have to consult a lawyer usually isn’t a good day or something you want to deal with so stress levels can be a bit high. Arash was patient, knowledgeable and answered all my questions. I was more than grateful after our conversation and appreciated his assistance very much. I would recommend any criminal case directly to his office.

I needed advice on a complicated and private matter involving a crime law situation when a friend introduced me to Mr. Hashemi. He was very thorough in his explanation of the law, and helped me come up with the best plan to handle my situation. His prices were very competitive and what I liked most was that was very honest and didn’t just blow smoke to get my business.

I’ve used Arash’s law offices twice and both cases were dismissed.
Communication was flawless and efficient.
I will recommend Arash’s law office to anyone.
Thank you for everything Arash!

Arash is the only attorney I would trust when in a legal predicament. His excellence towards his clients exceeds what my expectations were. I have had several attorneys and have never come across someone who fights to get the job done.

I would only trust him with my legal matters and definitely would refer him to my own personal friends and family. You can’t risk putting your life issues in an amateurs hands.

He truly cares for his clients and passionate about his job. He is also giving of any information requested which is hard to find without an attorney trying to charge you for a second of their time.

I will be coming to him for any future issues.
