The Vartazarian Law Firm has proven itself to be one of the preeminent jury trial law firms in the country by obtaining record setting results. When we go to trial, we pride ourselves on being the most prepared attorneys in the Courthouse and we consistently get results that are much higher than the Defendant’s highest offer.

99% of our cases come referred to us by other attorneys when they are confronted with a tough case that requires our specialized skills in the Courtroom.  We only take a select number of cases and we have kept the firm purposefully small in order to provide the best service to our clients and referring attorneys.  Some notable results include:

Reed v. County of San Bernardino Children and Family Services (July 2019)
(San Bernardino County – CIVDS1416377)
