Nicole Lari-Joni, a founding partner of Lari-Joni & Bassell, LLP, is known for advocacy for her clients in Los Angeles, California, and throughout the counties of Los Angeles, Orange, Santa Barbara, Riverside, as well as other areas of the state. Ms. Lari-Joni's law practice focuses on representing plaintiffs in matters involving sexual assault, sexual harassment, personal injury, and wrongful death. Throughout the years, she has amassed a record of successful verdicts and settlements on behalf of her clients, including some of the largest verdicts in the state. 

Before attending law school, Ms. Lari-Joni completed her Bachelor of Science in biology at the University of California, Santa Barbara (USCB), and obtained her Master of Science degree in biology at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). She then attended the University of London, where she received her Certificate of International Legal Studies. Upon returning to the United States, Ms. Lari-Joni attended Thomas Jefferson School of Law, graduating with her Juris Doctor in 2007.

Before emigrating to the United States, Ms. Lari-Joni was raised in Switzerland where she became fluent in English, French, Farsi, German, and Swiss German.
