Liya Arushanyan

Senior Attorney
Van Nuys, California

When I first obtained my license to practice law in California, I began my career at a law firm representing insurance companies. I realized quickly that I was sitting on the wrong side of justice, and I wanted to be across the table fighting for regular people who had been wronged. I was fortunate to find a partner, Mher Asatryan, who shared my passion and drive for protecting the rights of individuals, and we joined forces. I believe the job that I do in representing my clients is an absolute privilege. Our firm fights hard to obtain maximum recovery on every case, whether the case is big or small, because I do not open my office door every day to just go through the motions of attorney work but instead I open my door every day to fight for each individual client. I believe my strongest character trait is compassion for every person that I meet and I genuinely want to do the best for them.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, attending concerts, traveling, watching and engaging in water sports and eating good food with good people. I look forward to meeting you.
