I am a seasoned litigator, and part of the next generation of private mediators in Los Angeles. I have a unique multicultural perspective that has been shaped by an upbringing that spans three continents, an English preparatory schooling, and modern American values and ethics. I have been told that I have a talent for diplomacy and peacekeeping, and as such I have earned a reputation among among my peers, clients and industry professionals for serving as the voice of reason. I rely on my interpersonal and problem-solving skills to defuse critical situations. With a first-hand immigrant experience, I am sensitive to, and understand, the cultural nuances that so often lie at the heart of disputes arising in diverse communities such as Los Angeles. My personal and professional experiences have given me a firm grasp on human behavior, especially those that arise during litigation and the mediation process. As a result, I understand the delicate balancing act that is often involved during the course of a mediation.

Born in Iran, I lived in Germany for two years and later moved to England when I was 8 years old. I later attended a prestigious preparatory and military-style school where I graduated at the highest rank of my class. After studying at university in London for one year, I decided to pursue my educational and career ambitions in the United States. With a one-way ticket in hand, I moved to Los Angeles where I obtained a Bachelors Degree in Business Law. I moved to New York where I earned a Law Degree and a Masters Degree in Business Administration, focusing in the areas of corporate law and finance, respectively.​ I returned to Los Angeles in 2003, and completed my last year of law school as a visiting student at Loyola Law School in 2004. Later that year, I was sworn into the California State Bar, and I have been actively litigating cases on behalf of plaintiffs and defendants ever since. I have family members spread throughout the world which, time permitting, serves as a perfect excuse to travel. I enjoy watching documentaries and enjoy all things related to the culinary world.

I spent the first year of my legal career working for a solo practitioner where I experience was nothing short of litigation boot camp. Thereafter, I became an associate at Carlson Law Group, where I focused my practice on defending professional liability claims against real estate agents and brokers. In 2008, I joined Tharpe & Howell, LLP, where I developed a new practice area for the firm in the field of education and school liability law. Within my niche, I represented institutional clients in tort and employment cases. In 2011, I became a Partner nominee, and I was voted in as Partner the following year. Ultimately, I decided to pursue my passion of becoming a full-time mediator, and in 2012, I co-founded my current firm, Sepassi & Tarighati, LLP, where in addition to mediation, I pursue a balanced plaintiff and defense practice. I serve as a pro bono mediator as part of the Los Angeles Superior Court's ADR Program, and in the past have periodically served as a Settlement Officer for the Santa Barbara County Superior Court.
