IABA San Diego is proud to honor Ramin Hariri, Esq., as its Member of the Month for February 2017. Ramin is the Managing Principal and Founder of the Hariri Law Group, a San Diego-based law firm that focuses on personal injury cases and employment law.
Prior to founding the Hariri Law Group, Ramin worked at several prominent national litigation firms where he represented clients on a wide range of complex civil litigation matters, including toxic torts, products liability, environmental contamination issues, and personal injury claims. Ramin received his law degree from Loyola Law School in Los Angeles, California, where he was Editor of the Entertainment Law Review.
Ramin was one the original members of the IABA San Diego Chapter and also served on its board in various roles, including as Chapter President in 2016. As stated by Ramin: “Ten years ago we decided to create the San Diego Chapter for IABA in the hopes of bringing the Iranian-American legal community together. Since that time, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and working with many Iranian-American attorneys, Judges and law students. These relationships have not only developed into great professional relationships but into long lasting friendships.”
Ramin identifies many benefits of becoming an active member of IABA, including its assistance in developing a solid referral network and providing helpful career opportunities, but Ramin highlights the most important benefit as “being part of something bigger than yourself. It’s the opportunity to give back to the community and to help those who are following in your footsteps.”
As for guidance that Ramin can impart to Iranian-American law students seeking to establish their footing in the local San Diego community, Ramin succinctly advises, “approach everything with a positive mindset. Take time to meet people and get to know them on a personal level and always maintain your integrity.”
Should you have the opportunity to meet Ramin at the next IABA event, take time to get to know him, as he has a wealth of valuable experience and advice he can offer the next generation of Iranian-American lawyers.
