My road in life has taken me all over.
First, I went to the University of California Fullerton to get my bachelor’s degree in criminal justice.
Then I became a teacher and did some social work in addition to running my own real estate brokerage.
Then I went to the California Law School for my doctorate in law.
In 2020, I was awarded for being one of the three best criminal lawyers in Garden Grove, CA.

Helping People

Day to Day

On a typical day, I have court early in the mornings and then has certain bills that I need to take care of. This is usually done by lunchtime; however, at times, I do not have enough time to eat lunch during my break due to a busy schedule. Afterward, I am back with other clients who are in need of my assistance. Once I have taken care of what the first half of the day brings me, I work on the client's files and any other work I need to finish.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for everyone

I recommend deciding if working in a law career is something you truly want to do. Do a lot of volunteering in the specific law field you want. For example, if you want to be a divorce lawyer, volunteer in a divorce office to understand what the daily routine is like. You have to get a feel for the field. I also advise you understand the human part of the career because in being a lawyer, you have to know how to interact with your clients.

The Noise I Shed

From Friends:

"This is not something you actually want to do. We are not smart enough to accomplish the goals we have for ourselves. It’s too much work. Chances of success are low."

Challenges I Overcame

First-Generation Immigrant
Physical Issues


Did you decide to be a lawyer out of free will or was there ever a pressure to be one?

Asked by Anonymous Student

Mr. Azami was actually told to not be a lawyer by his family. His parents would tell him to look at the advertisements on the streets and since the majority of lawyers were not immigrants, like the one he is, he would not be accepted by society.

Who was your number one inspiration? What exactly did they do to inspire you?

Asked by Anonymous Student

Although Mr. Azami's family was a big inspiration in his life, Mr. Azami himself was his biggest inspiration. Mr. Azami started from nothing and that motivated him to climb his way to the top and be someone successful in life.
