Profile

Artin provides his clients with laser-focused strategies, and has helped a diverse collection of business enterprises successfully navigate complex litigation matters. Central to Artin’s approach to the practice of law is an unwavering commitment to providing exceptional client service, and adeptness at balancing business objectives with the management of legal exposure.

Artin is a highly experienced civil litigator, having started his career at ground-zero of the 2007 financial crisis. During his formative years as an attorney, Artin handled a panoply of litigation matters spawned by that crisis, including lawsuits asserting violations of the alphabet soup of state and federal consumer protection laws (including TCPA, FCRA, RESPA, TILA, and FDCPA), contractual loan repurchase claims, real property disputes, and commercial litigation matters. Artin has been entrusted by some of the nation’s largest financial institutions to try cases, manage national portfolios of consumer litigation, and lead the defense of class actions, including those brought under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.

Starting from this solid foundation of experience, Artin has honed his skills to become a highly effective advocate, with the capability of handling a broad array of matters, including disputes involving financial transactions, commercial contracts, business fraud, commercial and residential real estate, and consumer protections laws. Artin’s breadth of subject matter experience is complimented by his jurisdictional experience, with California and Florida bar licenses bookending the multiple jurisdictions in which he has litigated cases.
