Abraham Dervishian, Esq., the firms founding partner, began to practice law in 2009, he primarily focuses his practice on Serious and Catastrophic Personal Injury, Social Security Disability, and consumer protection matters such as lemon law. From the beginning of his career, Mr. Dervishian decided that his calling was to help individuals who have been wronged, whether it be by the government, businesses or other individuals, he has since been committed to put right what once went wrong.
Prior to starting his own Law Firm, Mr. Dervishian worked as a litigation attorney at other personal injury firms where he began to hone his skills as an Attorney. However, he began to notice that prior to having cases assigned to him to file lawsuits, these firms were not involved enough with their clients and did not pay the requisite attention to their clients and their cases to bring about a better result. Mr. Dervishian realized that this type of care must be taken from the moment a client has retained the law firm. As such, Abraham decided that he can provide superior service to his clients by putting in place the right strategy and skills to move his clients cases forward with the purpose of recovering greater settlements and verdicts. Mr. Dervishian recognized such service cannot be attained individually and would require a team of motivated and likeminded individuals who took pride in their work and genuinely cared about their clients, as such D & Z Law Group recruited the right staff with the right skills to their team in order to bring about their goal of providing excellent client service and attaining the best results for their clients.
Abraham also dedicates a significant amount of time to community service organizations and has volunteered with California’s Parole Advocacy Program and the Public Defender’s office. He is currently the CEO and a Board Member of Miracle Kare 4 Kids, a non-profit organization dedicated to educating the public on the impact of childhood diseases and providing healthcare for indigent children who have such diseases. Abraham also serves as a board member for the Western Diocese Armenian Apostolic Church and is an active member in the community.
