Attorney Profile

A highly respected criminal defense attorney, Lara Yeretsian is the principal attorney at Yeretsian Law. She takes cases in Glendale, Burbank, Los Angeles, and other cities in 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 the client.

She has done just that for decades. Ms. Yeretsian has tried many cases --including cases involving rape, murder, firearms, drug, hit and Run, and DUI charges among other charges-- with great results.  For these and other accomplishments, she holds an Avvo “Excellent” rating.

Fluent in Arabic and Armenian, Ms. Yeretsian represents clients from all walks of life. She is committed to keeping the lines of communication open with clients, responding to their concerns quickly and in plain language. People who are well-informed are best equipped to make decisions about their future.

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 with distinction from 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.
