Justice and fairness are extremely important to Mr. Shahrestani, having often seen and experienced the opposite in our world. Prior to his career in the law, he worked as a teacher at the secondary school and college level dedicated to critical thinking, intellectual inquiry, and empowerment of our youth. After law school, his legal career began in non-profit social justice litigation, community law education and activism. Since 2007, he has focused on serving our community in the areas of law that most affect our daily lives: Divorce, Education, Business, and Criminal Defense. Mr. Shahrestani has a passionate sense of righteous indignation about the abuses of power, corruption, ignorance, and indifference that occur at all levels in our society. He wants to right these wrongs, whether that means defending the wrongly accused, helping the confused see the error of their ways, or bringing peaceful resolutions to turgid conflicts. He always prefers amicable negotiations, as he believes they make the world a better place. But it’s well known that he can bring the pain when necessary.
