Sark is an exceptional lawyer. He’s advised me on business matters for many years. He cares, he listens, and he gets things done. His advice is always sage and well thought out. His fees are very reasonable and he’s worth every penny and more. If you need a lawyer who is both wise and does exactly what he says he’ll do, he’s your man.

Mr. Babachanian is an excellent attorney. He takes a very caring approach to his client’s legal needs. He helped me resolve my business matter very efficiently. He was able to resolve my issue quickly and saved me alot of money from avoiding a long drawn out court case. I would definitely recommend Sark as my attorney of choice.

- Sebu

There are times when customer service is so exceptional, it warrants special recognition. On a contractual insurance matter, I consulted with Sarkis J. Babachanian. After thoroughly reviewing my documents, Sarkis objectively presented the pros and cons allowing me to make an informed decision whether or not to pursue the case. I was impressed with his assessment and chose to forge ahead. Sarkis filed the motion in superior court, and soon thereafter was successful in obtaining a favorable outcome for me. I am convinced that had it not been for the pragmatic approach and expertise of Sarkis, I would not have prevailed. Thank you once again for a job well done.

- Ed

I am very fortunate, and honored by being represented by Mr. Sarkis Babachanian in my case. After spending time and money with other lawyers, I couldn’t be happier by switching it to him. He is an expert in law, and a great humanitarian. He will work hard for you, and always keep you posted of every little detail of each step of the process. Looking for the client’s needs. And his fees are very decent for the amount of effort he will put in your case.

As a film and video producer, before every new project we have to set the rules for the deliverables and responsibilities of both the Producer and our Client. Telling our client’s stories cinematically is both an Art and Science, and because of that there are thousands of variables to the process of making a film. Babachanian has always been there for us to ensure that both parties completely understand the responsibilities and deliverables, and most importantly Babachanian has always looked in our best interest to make sure that we are well protected in the eyes of law. Starting a project with a solid legal contract completely changes the way we approach the film production process, and as a producer the peace of mind is crucial to our creativity and business survival. Art Simon Productions highly recommends Babachanian’s legal expertise to anyone dealing in the service sector.
