A highly respected criminal defense attorney, Lara Yeretsian is the principal attorney at Yeretsian Law. She takes cases in Glendale and Los Angeles, California, that involve matters such as white collar crimes, drug violations, federal crimes, domestic violence, theft and DUI.

Ms. Yeretsian is no stranger to high-profile cases. Over the course of her career, she has handled matters involving Scott Peterson and Michael Jackson. As such, she is particularly skilled in discretion and dealing with the media. Despite all the potential distractions associated with these cases, Ms. Yeretsian is able to focus on what matters most: returning the best possible outcome for client.

She has done just that for decades. When it comes to DUI litigation, Ms. Yeretsian has never lost a trial. In other trial matters, including rape, murder and firearms charges, she has a near-perfect record for securing mistrials, dismissals and acquittals.

In 1994, Ms. Yeretsian received a Bachelor of Arts in political science from California State University, Northridge. She then graduated with a Juris Doctor in 1997 from the Southwestern Law School, later earning a Master of Laws in international and comparative law from the Georgetown Law in 1998.

When she is not working on a client’s case, Ms. Yeretsian may be found doing philanthropic work with the Armenian Bone Marrow Donor Registry or serving as chair of the Police Permit Review Panel of the Los Angeles Police Department.
