Justice and fairness are extremely important to Mr. Shahrestani, having often seen and experienced the opposite in our world. Prior to working as an attorney, he worked as a teacher at the secondary school and college level dedicated to social justice. He has a passionate sense of righteous indignation about the abuses of power, corruption, ignorance, and indifference that occur at all levels, public and private, 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.
