Nick T. Movagar
Mr. Movagar co-founded Movagar & Yamin with the goal of championing and defending the interests of individuals who have been physically injured or killed as a result of the negligence of another party. Movagar & Yamin elected to practice within this area of the law because personal injury victims are often the most vulnerable people who need legal representation the most. These victims have just undergone a serious injury and are not in a position to bring a personal injury claim and/or pursue a lawsuit. Also, because most people are unfamiliar with their rights in connection with a personal injury claim, the other side may take advantage of them by either denying their claim or offering to pay them much less than their claim is worth. This is where Movagar & Yamin steps into the case to ensure all of their clients’ rights are protected and that all clients get just and full compensation.
Mr. Movagar presently represents wrongful death heirs and Plaintiff’s throughout the state of California that have been injured in every conceivable type of accident involving the negligence of another party. These include, but are not limited to, car accidents, motorcycle accidents, boating accidents, trucking accidents, premises liability cases, and animal attacks. Mr. Movagar works tirelessly to ensure each and every client gets just compensation and all necessary medical treatment so that they are made whole from the losses they sustained as result of the accident.
Mr. Movagar has proudly recovered tens of millions of dollars for his clients and has been recognized by numerous publications, such as National Trial Lawyers, Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, Super Lawyers magazine and the Los Angeles Magazine, for the results he has obtained on behalf of his clients. On five separate years, Mr. Movagar has been selected as a “Rising Star” on the Southern California Super Lawyers list – an award given to less than 2.5% of practicing attorneys. In 2016, Mr. Movagar was recognized as a Super Lawyer by the California Super Lawyers Magazine. Mr. Movagar has also been recognized by the National Trial Lawyers Magazine as a top 100 trial lawyer in the country, and is also a proud member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum (which is a distinction for attorneys who have recovered $2 million or more on a single case).
Prior to co-founding Movagar & Yamin, Mr. Movagar worked at an elite law firm in west Los Angeles. While there, Mr. Movagar represented Hilton Hotels Worldwide, Inc. (the world’s largest hotel company), Apartment Investment and Management Company (one of the nation’s largest owners and operators of apartment communities), Anschutz Entertainment Group (one of the leading sports and entertainment presenters in the world and the owner of the Staples Center), and Union Carbide Corporation (a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Dow Chemical Company).
Mr. Movagar received his Juris Doctorate from Loyola Law School in downtown Los Angeles in 2004 and graduated Cum Laude with Order of the Coif Honors. While at Loyola Law School, Mr. Movagar was an Editor on the Entertainment Law Review and volunteered at the Disability Rights Legal Center, an organization that champions the civil rights of people with disabilities through advocacy, education and litigation. While in law school, Mr. Movagar also served as an extern at the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
