Narine Mkrtchyan Criminal Defense Attorney on Jun 10, 2014


Arezou Bakhtjou is a resourceful and knowledgeable defense attorney who possesses the essential skills that define a truly great attorney. I first met her in 2011 when I was volunteering with the Riverside County Public Defender's Office where she worked full time, handling cases from misdemeanors all the way up to felonies. Not only is she a skilled negotiator who understands all aspects of criminal defense, she is a brilliant trial lawyer too, winning a whole host of cases. Her compassion and respect for her clients is unmatched when it comes to Public Defenders, who often have unreasonably large case loads. She always seems to take the time to know the defendant, the facts of the case, any possible defenses, and always builds trust and good relationships with the prosecution. Now that she has entered private practice, I have no doubt whatsoever she will continue to provide superior legal representation. If you need a criminal defense attorney, look no further than Ms. Bakhtjou.

Arezou is smart, considerate, and passionate about achieving the best legal outcome for her clients. She will always “go the extra yard” in seeking the best for his clients when the opportunity arises. Because Arezou is a public defender, she does not represent private clients. But, for those that are lucky enough to have her appointed to their case, I fully endorse her.

Paul Upton Criminal Defense Attorney on Jun 9, 2013


Ari is a natural trial lawyer. There's just no other way to explain it. She's a tremendous asset to those who can't afford private counsel, and she's as good as any private lawyer anyway. Her consistently extraordinary results are surpassed only by her genuine humility. I endorse Ari without a scintilla of a reservation.

Difficult name = awesome attorney. Arezou is a winning trial lawyer. She gets her clients acquittals and gets cases reduced or dismissed before trial. Prosecutors give her great offers because they know that she will beat them in trial. Her prices are very reasonable considering the service that she provides. I would refer my friends to her if they had a criminal case and could not afford to lose.
