Bobby Saadian, Esq., JD/MBA, the Founding Partner and Managing Attorney of Wilshire Law Firm, is a nationally-recognized, award-winning consumer attorney who represents personal injury victims and their families throughout the state of California. A skilled negotiator and the confident leader of an award-winning trial firm, Bobby has built a reputation for litigation excellence over the last decade-plus, winning hundreds of millions of dollars on behalf of his clients—including a $17.1 million verdict for a bus accident victim who was forced to undergo a right leg amputation.

Bobby’s genuine compassion and empathy for others sets him apart from his competition. When Bobby says that he is committed to excellence and committed to the health of his clients first and foremost, he lives up to it. Bobby carefully limits his case load, taking the time to build a relationship of trust and respect with each of his clients. His unwavering focus is on ensuring his clients achieve their maximum medical improvement—and with Bobby’s extensive network of expert medical professionals, private investigators, and accident reconstruction specialists, Bobby’s clients can be confident that they are working with the best of the best.

As one of Southern California’s most formidable consumer attorneys, Bobby has earned recognition from both his industry peers and the community at-large as an innovative legal leader. He is listed in both The Best Lawyers in America© and Super Lawyers, and he holds a prestigious AV Preeminent Peer Rating for professional and ethical excellence from the world’s most trusted legal resource, Martindale-Hubbell.

His legal leadership has likewise been recognized with appointments to several legal leadership boards, including the Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles (CAALA) Board of Governors, the Consumer Attorneys of California (CAOC) Board of Directors, the Brain Society of California Board of Directors, and the Pepperdine University School of Law Dean’s Council. Through his work with these organizations, Bobby meets with state attorney generals and legislators to help shape policies designed to protect vulnerable consumers from large corporations.

Extending the reach of his advocacy is important to Bobby. He frequently speaks at trial advocacy, litigation seminars, and other continuing legal education events, including the annual Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles (CAALA) Las Vegas Convention and the National Trial Lawyers Summit. In 2017, Bobby started Wilshire Law Firm’s Academic Scholarship Program, which is “committed to helping the next generation of lawyers succeed.” As an Executive Board Member of the Los Angeles Trial Lawyers’ Charities (LATLC), Bobby gives back to the community by supporting childhood education, persons with disabilities, survivors of abuse, and homeless services. Because for Bobby, changing lives isn’t a job—it’s a calling.
