Mr. Kevorkian started his legal career in 1990 (then only 18 years-old) working for a major Los Angeles personal injury firm initially as a bookkeeper, law clerk and ultimately as an associate attorney working aside Garo Mardirossian, Esq. (his cousin and godfather) and the late Charles B. O’Reily, Esq. affectionately referred to as “Charlie O”. His years of experience and knowledge learned “on the job” far surpassed his years of law school education.
While there he worked on major cases involving injured victims in automobile accidents, product and premises liability matters against major auto manufacturers, corporations and state and local governments. In Gozukara v. Ford Motor Co. a matter involving a family who suffered life altering injuries including paraplegia and the loss of an unborn child in a Ford Explorer roll over in Barstow, California, after extensive litigation Raffi was able to find the “smoking gun” document attorneys dream of. This lead to a seven (7) figure settlement with the State of California over the road design negligence thus narrowing the focus of the matter on Ford Motor Co and its dealer.
After years of working at Mardirossian & Associates, Inc. as an instrumental member of the firm assisting in amassing large verdicts for those injured, Mr. Kevorkian moved to Orange County, CA where he became in house counsel for a Chrysler, Jeep & Dodge Dealership handling all corporate and employment matters. Feeling uninspired and missing the fulfillment of representing the injured, he left this lucrative position returning to his passion of representing those injured and started his own practice the Law Offices of Raffi K Kevorkian in 2005 in the spirit of the late Charlie O, “represent[ing] friends and family! Not clients! Banks and insurance companies are clients.”
In those last ten plus years, Raffi has successfully tried to verdict or obtained awards and settlements for those whom he has represented in the great seven digits by getting to know those he’s represented.
Raffi obtained his bachelor’s degree from California State University Northridge and after two short years of law school in an accelerated program at Whittier Law School graduated having been awarded the Jurisprudence Award in Constitutional Law. Raffi is admitted in all courts in the State of California.
