Firm Overview

Trials, appeals, and post conviction litigation for more than 30 years.

Arya Law Center is committed exclusively to criminal defense in the California justice system. Our unrelenting advocacy for our clients’ rights is the foundation of our law firm. We represent clients in prosecution, appeals and post-conviction proceedings.

Our firm focuses on zealous, client-centered representation. We are results driven and work tirelessly to put the justice system to work for our clients. We are former public defenders who passionately believe in protecting the constitutional rights of our clients.

Family-Oriented Representation

Family is important to us, and we have created a firm that reflects our values and provides outstanding representation that may prove crucial when you or a loved one is facing criminal charges or has already been convicted.

Comprehensive Knowledge

Since its inception, the firm’s multi-layered approach to legal defense has been its cornerstone. We have the uncommon experience to handle the most complicated cases at each stage of the judicial process — at the trial level, at the appellate level and through post-conviction proceedings..

Our attorneys represent clients at every step of the criminal law process, including:


You are innocent unless the prosecution proves, beyond a reasonable doubt, that you committed the crime. This concept is the foundation of the American justice system. We hold prosecutors to the highest standards, and we have been very successful in obtaining complete dismissals during the preliminary stages of cases. In cases that proceed to trial, we have secured countless victories on behalf of our clients in matters ranging from driving under the influence (DUI) to first-degree murder. While marijuana is now legal in California, we have extensive experience defending drug crime charges involving other narcotics, such as cocaine and heroin.


If you are convicted of a felony and sentenced to prison, you should consider an appeal to have your case reviewed by a higher court. When we represent you at trial, we diligently preserve issues related to judicial errors for appeal, and we are prepared to file a brief promptly. Many criminal defense lawyers only take cases up to the trial stage. If you have been convicted of a criminal offense, we urge you to promptly let us review your case to determine if you have appealable issues so you do not miss the filing deadline.

Post-Conviction Litigation

Even if you have exhausted your appellate options, you may still have an opportunity for post-conviction relief. Founding partner Majid Safaie is considered one of California’s leading authorities in complex Rule 35(c) litigation and post-conviction proceedings. Our firm is one of only a handful in the state that pursues this important means of having a conviction overturned.

We are criminal defense attorneys who advocate for justice on behalf of our clients.
