If You Are Being Charged Or About To Be Charged For A Crime?

You should consider hiring a criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.  There are many innocent people who feel that if they talk to the police, their problems will be solved.  Unfortunately, this may, or may not be the result.  There is almost never a situation where you should talk to police without an attorney.  A criminal defense attorney has one purpose in life: to protect your rights, and make the District Attorney prove their case. If they cannot prove their case, then you deserve to be completely absolved and found not guilty.  It's that simple. I know the legal system inside and out.  My career started with the District Attorney's Office where my job was to prosecute criminals.  I made a mistake at one point in my career and it caused me great pain and anguish that devastated my life.  I was actually charged, convicted, and did time for a careless mistake.  When I came out, I worked to regain the public's trust and confidence, started legal clinics to help the less fortunate, and ultimately won the battle to have my Bar license reinstated so that I can help protect people like you and me who have either made a mistake or who are innocent and want to get on with their lives.

“When it comes to understanding what you are going through, and knowing how to fix the problem, there is probably no one better than Bryan R. Kazarian. He’s been there, and done it.”
— Thomas M. Willford - Attorney at Law

Bryan Kazarian is the best lawyer you can come across. He is extremely dedicated to his work and all of his clients. He made me feel very comfortable and I could tell that he really cared about my case. Any time I had a question about anything, no matter how big or small, Bryan would call me almost immediately to answer them. He dresses to impress and takes his job very serious. At my last court appearance I had so many people walk up to me and ask me if they can please get his card. You will not regret choosing Mr. Kazarian as your lawyer. I trust him with my life. Thank you Bryan for all that you have done for me!

Bryan is a consummate professional. I couldn’t have hoped for a better experience with a lawyer. He’s personable from the beginning and truly understands you and is really accessible, which as a client which makes the process much more relaxing. You have the confidence that he’s working with your best interests in mind, and he’s in your corner no matter what which, for me, was huge. But then there’s this: Bryan’s team is very smart, and he’s very sharp. He knows the system like a native language and above all, he’s just a pro. This was evident when I saw the respect he commands from judges and lawyers alike. I highly recommend

I was recommended to Bryan from a coworker two days before I had to show up to court and he went to court for me and each time after that, so I didn’t have to miss work. That was a huge relief. He was very upfront every time I spoke with him and just gets the job done. He was able to get my case dropped completely and I didn’t have any stress for the three months he was handling it. He worked with me on a payment plan that was comfortable for me, as well. I 100% recommend Bryan to any one for making this easy and stress free for me. Thank you Bryan. I really appreciate it.

Bryan helped me get my life back to normal. He made the process so easy and calm the whole time. I did’t have to take any time off from work and answered all my questions in a professional matter.

Bryan did an awesome job and delivered nothing short of a miracle for our family. He gave us nothing but top notch service. I live out of state and he was in constant communication with me when I couldn’t be in town for my daughter’s court dates.
I would highly recommend Bryan for criminal defense, he is professional, knowledgeable, and caring. Hire Bryan and you won’t be disappointed.

Bryan recently helped me out on two different criminal charges. They were from many years ago and I now live out of the area. Communication was key because I didn’t live in California. He was always easy to get a hold of and made the whole process so easy. He worked a miracle in my case. I only had to fly to California twice and now only after a couple of months I am completely done with everything. He made it so I could finish everything up in Washington state. If you want a great lawyer who you can always count on, I highly recommend Bryan kazarian.
— N.S.
Good representation doesn’t begin to describe what Mr. Kazarian offers. I was recently caught up in a nightmare situation, and Mr. Kazarian’s expert legal advice helped me through a very stressful time. Not only was I kept in the loop through out the ordeal, he was proactive in handling my situation with empathy and professionalism. Mr. Kazarian also went above and beyond ensuring that the DA never filed my case. His continued advice and assistance goes above and beyond anything I would have expected. If you ever find yourself in a situation where it seems like everything is crashing down, I highly recommend Mr. Kazarian.
