Haleh Rashidi, Esq.
Haleh’s career as a family law attorney started in the chambers of the Honorable Elizabeth Sichel, Riverside County Superior Court Family Law Judge. Working for Judge Sichel gave her invaluable experience and insight into how judges decide cases and hence how to win a case.
She had already honed her legal research and writing skills by serving as a research assistant for Professor Robert A. Pugsley of Southwestern University School of Law, where she contributed to a few of his publications.
Her interest in litigation led her to the Los Angeles Office of the District Attorney where she successfully handled over thirty preliminary hearings on her own.
She has worked as a litigation associate for a few firms winning many cases including a $1.5 million jury verdict in one of her asbestos cases (while she was “second chair” in that case, she was primarily responsible for preparing the case for trial).
Prior to going on her own to concentrate on family law litigation, Haleh has worked for Duetsche Bank leading their discovery legal team and has worked for a variety of firms handling family law and other civil cases (including 1st chairing jury trials).
Haleh is a graduate of UCLA and Southwestern University School of Law
