Experienced in both asserting and defending actions, Nima represents numerous professionals and dealerships in the automotive retail industry.

Clients benefit from Nima’s deep knowledge of the law and his skillful application of it when strategizing on the efficient resolution of lawsuits, including negotiated settlements.
