S. J. Babachanian, Esq.

California attorney S.J. Babachanian offers clients accessible, cost-effective legal solutions inside and outside of the courtroom. Decades of broad and deep experience qualify Mr. Babachanian to professionally handle a range of cases in the following practice areas:

  • Criminal Defense: As a criminal defense attorney, Mr. Babachanian fights exaggerated charges, illegal searches, lying witnesses and false evidence; he negotiates dismissals, lower bail and fines, alternatives to custody and less (or no) jail time; and he helps clients keep jobs, calm family, get needed treatment and stay out of jail or prison.
  • Restraining Orders: Mr. Babachanian helps people needing to file or defend against civil harassment, domestic violence or workplace violence restraining orders petitions.
  • Personal Injury and Police Misconduct: Mr. Babachanian negotiates and litigates catastrophic or serious auto accident, motorcycle accident, truck accident, pedestrian accident and police brutality cases seeking to make clients whole after they’ve been injured by the wrongful acts of others.
  • Business Litigation: Mr. Babachanian helps businesses resolve contract, trade secret and other disputes by negotiating settlements if feasible and appropriate, and by aggressively litigating if the adversary’s inflexibility leaves no solution other than a fight in court.
  • Business Transactions and Contracts: Mr. Babachanian counsels clients on the formation and maintenance of business entities (corporations, limited liability companies (LLCs) and partnerships), the negotiation and drafting of agreements (including for health care providers and managers), and on a range of other transactions.
  • Trust Administration, Probate and Conservatorships: Mr. Babachanian helps people deal with the loss of loved ones by providing counsel and representation in matters involving probate and trust administration, and helps those seeking to care for loved ones who have lost the capacity to care for themselves.
  • Mediation and Dispute Resolution: Mr. Babachanian uses his advanced dispute resolution training and cross-cultural and language skills to help parties minimize risk by deciding their own settlement terms rather than having decisions forced upon them by judges or juries.

Mr. Babachanian is licensed to practice law in the California Supreme Court, all lower California courts and in the United States District and Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California.
