Maryam Atighechi elected as Superlawyer Rising Star

Maryam Atighechi was elected as a Super Lawyer Rising Star, an honor reserved for the top 2% of all attorneys in California who exhibit Excellence in their field and was featured in Los Angeles Magazine, Super Lawyers Edition. 

Maryam’s legal career focuses on family law and civil litigation.  In civil litigation, Maryam has represented a number of plaintiffs whose civil rights were undermined by major corporations and insurance companies in both state and federal court.  Throughout her career, Maryam has obtained over six figures in combined settlements and jury verdicts in civil matters.  Maryam is unique in that she has jury trial experience and considers herself a trial attorney first and foremost.  Her true passion, aside from handling child custody cases, is jury trials.

In Family Law, Maryam is focused on one goal:  to obtain the best possible result for her client.  Whether aggressive litigation is necessary or a more collaborative approach is required, a strategy is immediately devised to obtain results.  Maryam works with the client, provides a listening ear through the most difficult time in his/her life, and remains compassionate without compromising aggressive representation.   Maryam knows that her clients are faced with the most valued treasure, their children, and will guide them through the legal proceedings to ensure their legal rights are met.

Maryam obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Molecular and Cell Biology from the University of Connecticut.  She attended Western State University School of Law where she earned a Juris Doctorate degree.  While at Western, Maryam was one of a select few to be chosen to represent the school in national moot court competitions based on her superior writing and oral skills.  She was honored with the opportunity to travel the nation and represent the school in mock trials.

Maryam is admitted to practice law in California State Court, the United States District Court for the Central District, the United States District Court for the Southern District, is a member of the American Bar Association, the Los Angeles Bar Association, Consumer Attorneys of Los Angeles and is a board member of the Vanguard Repertory Company of the La Canada Flintridge High School.
