Attorney Sabounji has helped clients obtain millions of dollars in compensation and damages through jury verdicts, settlements, and administrative awards.


Why I Do What I Do

Before deciding to go to law school, I grew up in a poor city and did what every immigrant family wants their child to do. . .I worked hard, got good grades and continued my education, even though I had no idea what I wanted to do.

Shortly after my undergraduate studies began, I realized that my calling in life was to help people. It came naturally to me to help anyone and everyone that needed my help. That is when I decided I needed to become an attorney so I could better serve my community.

In this industry, people come to me when they are hurt and oftentimes broken in some way, and often feel like the world and the odds are against them. My inherent instinct is to find a way to make them whole, show them I am on their side and put things back together.

I have a true passion for helping clients get full and fair compensation – and not one cent less – this is the driving force not only behind my career, but more importantly behind how I handle every client’s case.

Clients deserve an attorney that will take their case to heart, and be passionate about success. They also deserve to be treated with the utmost respect – after all, clients are the only reason that our firm exists.

We do not have a high volume practice. Instead, our practice is limited so that we can give every client the VIP treatment. Prompt return of emails and phone calls. The time to answer all questions. Availability around our client’s schedule. Coming to their home, if needed. Help with medical bills and insurance matters.
