Our Client Stories and How We Helped These Clients
“Ninaz is so professional. I started bragging in jail about all the good things she was doing in my case, and started giving her number out. She got three clients right away. Then I got a little jealous because one of those guys told me, ‘Hey, I’m going home today because of Ninaz!’ I was like, ‘Wait a minute – that’s my ticket home!’ Then another guy who was also leaving jail told me, ‘I got a great deal – Ninaz worked it out!’ I thought, ‘I’m not giving out Ninaz’s number anymore.’
“Then the next time I went to court, which was supposed to be the first day of my jury trial on two counts of forcible rape, which each carry a life sentence, Ninaz told me, ‘We got a full dismissal!’ I was shocked and said, ‘Are you sure, Ninaz?’ and she said, ‘Yeah.’
“So if you can have anyone going into the fire with you, I would take Ninaz over anybody. The work that she did, no one else would have done. No one. No way. There never was judgment from her. You can look at me and judge me – dark skin, big black eye, bald head, whatever – never once did she make me feel that way.
“I know that because of Ninaz, I have a second chance at life.”

“I was arrested by the Inglewood Police Department for being a felon in possession of a gun, and a felon in possession of ammunition. If I was convicted, I would be looking at eight years in the pen. I had been sitting in my car, which was parked on the side of a street. They said they saw a joint in plain view, then found open containers of alcohol when they searched the rest of the car. They also found a nine-millimeter semi-automatic handgun, and some bullets, in my glovebox. I thought for sure I was going to prison.
“But I hired Ninaz, and she filed a motion to suppress the evidence – the gun and bullets. She argued to the judge that the police had no right to interrogate me based on their excuse that my windows were illegally tinted. She showed the judge the California Vehicle Code law that says a violation only happens when you are actually driving the car.
“She then argued that the laws in the Vehicle Code about not smoking a joint in your car or having an open container in your car also only applied when you’re driving. Ninaz also cross-examined the cop who arrested me and got him to admit that my engine had not been running at the time, and that I was just parked by the curb.
“The judge agreed that IPD had no right to approach my car based on the tinted windows since I was parked; that they had no right to look into my car; and had no right to search it. Thanks to Ninaz, the entire case was dismissed and was able to walk out of the courtroom and go home to my wife and baby. Thanks to Ninaz, I got my life back.”
