Congratulations are very much in order for OV lawyer and author Abbas Kazerooni (Ch 91-96) who, for the ninth year in a row, has been selected as a SuperLawyer.
Abbas is founding partner of the law firm Kazerouni Law Group, based in California, USA, specialising in personal injury, consumer rights and class actions. Abbas is also an adjunct professor of law, so when he’s not in court, he can be found at the California Western School of Law, teaching consumer law. This follows a successful writing career, with two books to his name, which chart Abbas’ dramatic and difficult journey from Tehran to England during the Iran-Iraq war, in On Two Feet and Wings, and his life once he had arrived in England, in The Boy with Two Lives.
SuperLawyers is a division of Thompson Reuters and the rankings are achieved through both peer nomination and Thompson Reuter’s research department for results in certain areas of law. To be a ‘normal’ Superlawyer means you are in the top 2% of lawyers in your specialty area but of course to be Top 50 or Top 100 has even more significance. This is especially so in California, as it is by far the most densely populated legal demographic in the US and possibly the world.
Speaking about this recognition, Abbas said, “This means a lot to me because my peers, who know the industry most, are selecting me. This is the ninth year in a row that I have been selected as SuperLawyer and the second in the Top 50 and Top 100 categories.”
