A successful litigation and trial attorney in the Superior Courts for nearly 30 years, Tom Parsekian is dedicated to ensuring that the integrity of our judicial system is protected, and the rights we hold as citizens for a fair judicial process are upheld.
A graduate of Rutgers University School of Law-Newark with an undergraduate degree from Columbia University in New York, along with undergraduate studies at both Harvard University and Oxford University, England, Tom has had the privilege of successfully arguing cases on behalf of his clients before the United States District Courts, California state and U.S. Courts of Appeal, and is a member of the bar of the United States Supreme Court.
Specializing in Complex Litigation, Tom has been instrumental in defending his clients in order to protect their rights as business and home owners. Complex Litigation cases, which typically involve multiple parties and complex issues, require the facility to bring disparate interests together to find common ground and ultimately resolution. Tom has been extraordinarily successful in reaching favorable results for his clients through both bench and jury trials.
Managing his own law firm, Tom understands the challenges and rewards of being a business owner while always putting his clients’ needs first. Prior to opening his own firm in 1994, Tom worked for top boutique business and real estate litigation firms here in southern California.
Tom’s exposure to public service started with his father who was a highly decorated World War II combat veteran, respected trial attorney, judge, and state senator in New Jersey. Tom’s father told his children to “always find time in your life for public service.” Along with his sisters, Tom watched his parents exemplify honesty, integrity, and respect for all, no matter their background or circumstance.
Tom and his wife, Debra, are the proud parents of three wonderful children and son-in-law, and one beautiful granddaughter. When he’s not working or enjoying time with his family, Tom competitively runs marathons, most recently the Los Angeles Marathon in 2017 and 2018, and is thrilled to be running in the next Boston Marathon on April 20, 2020.
