“The meaning of life is to find your gift.
The purpose of life is to give it away.” 

— Pablo Picasso

My life’s purpose is to be of service to others 

 

My career has spanned years working in civil litigation, bankruptcy, criminal law, family law and everything in between. 

 

Becoming a mother changed everything. I saw the importance of Wills, Guardianship, and Estate Planning to protect my family and others. I realized my calling is to bring that knowledge to others. 

Credentials:

J.D., Southwestern Law School
B.A. in Pyschology and French, University of Southern California

"Bahar really took the time to listen to my concerns. She explained estate planning in plain English. I walked away understanding so much. I had a great experience working with her."

– Courtney, Los Angeles

 

"I was convinced that creating our estate plan was going to be a long and painful process. Bahar broke it down into simple and easy to accomplish pieces.  Before we knew it, we were done."
