Education Law Introduction

I am an aggressive Education Law Attorney capable of handling an array of matters for Schools, Students, and Staff involved in serious academic disputes at the primary school, secondary school, and university levels.

I have a unique first-hand understanding of such matters. Prior to my profession as an Attorney, I served my community as a teacher at the Middle School, High School, and University levels. I was one of 1,000 California Governor’s Teaching Fellowship recipients for my dedication to teaching “at-risk” youth in Continuation High Schools and under-served cities.

I am a passionate litigator when necessary as well as a dedicated negotiator focused on bringing opposing parties to the table to avoid costly and protracted courtroom battles. I invite you to discuss your legal issues with me at a Consultation.


“. . . Mr. Shahrestani attentively listens to the legal matter at hand and dissects the issues to explain how the legal aspect applied to each issue. . . The legal picture he presents is complete and thorough. . . Mr. Shahrestani is meticulous in reading and evaluating the subject of the legal matter. . . Mr. Shahrestani’s broad knowledge of various legal matters and willingness to accommodate schedules makes him my first preference when I seek advice on legal matters.”
