Robin Salzer [Testimonial by Robin Salzer, owner of Pasadena's Robin's Restaurant, for William Paparian Criminal Defense Attorney]

We have used Bill Paparian for legal help and he is an excellent attorney, one of the best I’ve ever known. Our friendship goes back more than three decades and I highly and unconditionally recommend Bill Paparian for your legal needs.

Regarding negative reviews, as I found out while in the restaurant business, they often emanate from business competitors, jealousy or someone wanting something free.

They are baseless if the postings are incomplete and if they didn’t try to rectify the issue first by calling you before posting a complaint.

Your reputation is GOLDEN in Pasadena.

-Thank you Robin, it's a gift to have clients who understand what involves and how cases advance.

YELP Review of William Paparian Attorney by Steve L. on April 1, 2021

I have Known Bill Paparian for thirty years. In that time period I have sent him several clients with complex and unusual cases, cases that most other lawyers were just too lazy to research and think about. Every one of those cases had a better than I would have expected outcome and the clients were reasonably happy considering no one is ever really happy who goes through the nightmare of our judicial system. I still refer people to Bill and if heaven forbid I needed a lawyer would call him.

  • Hi Bill, I can't thank you enough for all you did for us. We greatly appreciate your help and patience. This was very stressful for all of us, and you made it work. Now I know why you won BEST ATTORNEY!

Thank you again

CB, E's mom

  • From the father of the teen I defended...

Hi Bill- Thank you very much for all of your help, we greatly appreciate all your efforts in your aid with our son's dilemma. May God bless you and have a wonderful day."

Felt great, I was able to reduce Felony charges of premeditated theft of a Nordstrom outlet by a teenager to No Jail Time Misdemeanor 6 months probation, at the end of six months the case will be dismissed and record sealed for good. A very lucky teen to have parents like his. Because of the quality of the parents this teen will never pull this stunt again. I am sure. After I returned from court I received a great thank you note from the father. Some clients are a pleasure to know and work with.


  • *Dear Adam:

On behalf of my family, especially my son S., I wanted to acknowledge your involvement in gaining the services of Bill Paparian. We thank both you and Bill profusely. Bill was extremely professional and dedicated in assisting our son with a legal situation that could have been very serious. Bill's fees were far more than fair. He stayed in touch with us at all times, was more than understanding of our situation and in fact, I hope I have gained a new friend. Down deep inside I believe that since both Bill and I are veterans it may have been one of the reasons he put himself out for our family. For this we are grateful.

If there is anything I can do for you in future, please let me know. Thank you.

Yours in service
