Arsen founded the Law Offices of Arsen Sarapinian, P.C. after years of litigating cases throughout Southern and Northern California while working with renowned law firms such as the Dolan Law Firm and Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy. This included fighting corporate giants such as PG&E, national and international companies, governmental agencies, trucking companies, insurance companies, and others. In 2019, Super Lawyers Magazine selected him as "Rising Star" (limited to 2.5 percent of attorneys in California). That same year, The National Trial Lawyers selected him to the "Top 40 Under 40" list.
Arsen has tried cases before juries and has arbitrated and mediated dozens of cases across California, recovering millions of dollars on behalf of deserving clients. A unique aspect of the firm is our understanding of how insurance companies evaluate and defend cases. Arsen previously worked with insurance companies (outside trial counsel) and defended high-stakes personal injury, wrongful death, and employment cases with damages in the 6-8 figure range. This insight puts the firm at an advantage when dealing with insurance companies.
His track record of success also stems from understanding what judges look for, how judges analyze legal arguments, and how judges make rulings. Arsen has this experience - having worked as a judicial law clerk for Justice Marvin R. Baxter of the California Supreme Court (highest court in California) as well as to Judge Elizabeth D. Laporte of the District Court (federal court), where he assisted the courts in making rulings and writing judicial decisions.
Arsen is a graduate of UC Hastings College of the Law, where he served on the law school's flagship law review, the Hastings Law Journal and his article, "Fighting Foreclosure: Using Contract Law to Enforce the Home Affordable Modification Program" was published in the Hastings Law Journal (64 Hastings L.J. 905 (2013)) and was awarded UC Hastings' Albert G. Evans Scholarship in Private Enterprise. Arsen serves on the Board of Directors of the Litigation Bar Association ("LBA") and is a member of The National Trial Lawyers ("NTL"), the Armenian Bar Association ("ABA"), the American Association for Justice ("AAJ"), the Consumer Attorneys of California ("CAOC"), and the Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles ("CAALA").
