Constantinos (Dean) is a trial attorney at Banafshe Law Firm. Prior to joining Banafshe Law Firm, Dean worked at a reputable business and civil litigation firm specializing in the representation of many large companies. Dean has been fortunate enough to have handled a wide-ranging practice which included personal injury, transactional work, and estates and probate. He has experience in law and motion drafting, as well as representing clients in court.

In addition to obtaining a law degree from UCLA School of Law, Dean also obtained his Master of Laws (LL.M.) at UCLA. He was the recipient of the Dean’s Tuition Fellowship during his Master’s. Dean completed his law school education at Staffordshire University in Stoke-on-Trent, England.  Although the UK educational system does not have a class ranking system, it was expressed by his professors that he was one of the best performing students for many years.  This was also reflected as he was chosen to be a primary student ambassador and legal adviser for the re-launching of the Staffordshire University Legal Advice Clinic where he proudly and faithfully represented underprivileged members of the community with their legal matters.

During his time at the Staffordshire University School of Law, Dean was nominated for the ‘Kathleen Prize’ which is awarded for the most exceptional first-semester coursework (university wide).  He also conducted a Comparative Legal Research Dissertation on Food Law, was an active member of the Debating and Mooting Clubs and was specifically chosen as a first-year law student to represent Staffordshire University and England at the International Criminal Court Moot Competition at the Hague, Netherlands. Dean has given presentations about the Staffordshire University Legal Advice Clinic to the Vice-Chancellor, academics, lawyers, and other prominent members of the Stoke-on-Trent community.

When he isn’t zealously working hard representing his clients, Dean enjoys being outdoors.  He loves hiking, surfing, golf, travel, music, Cuban cigars, and enjoying a fine scotch with his family and friends.

What our clients are saying...

“When it comes to law firms, they can't get any better than the Ryan Banafshe law firm. They are both very personal, and professional. They make me feel as if I were their only client. In the time that I've been with them never have I felt put off nor unimportant. Not only did I hire a great law firm, I've found a great friend in every sense of the word friend.”

“They were kind, professional, knowledgeable, and always there for me every step of the way. They take care of everything you need and they really cared about my medical treatments. They aren't just stuck on taking care of the legal side of things. I would often get calls asking me how I was doing and if there is anything they could do for me. I honestly felt very well taken care of...every call I made was either taken or I was called back within an acceptable period of time….recommend them to any of my friends or family.”

“Mr. Banafshe represented me in a case over the past year. His staff was highly experienced and professional. Ryan sent someone to my home in Anaheim in order to get my statement. This speaks volume to me. I would highly recommend retaining the Banafshe law firm.”

“Ryan and his staff really know what they are doing and they will either take your call or call you back...The other driver's insurance company was giving me the run around before I hired an attorney, but things went rather smooth after I hired Ryan. I was lucky that Ryan was able to get me a settlement I was pleased with...”

“Mr. Banafshe is a stellar personal injury attorney. He is very detail oriented, professional, and skilled. He understands the law, and knows how to achieve the highest result on your claim. On a personal level, he is very caring, compassionate, and relates to his clients.”

I can't speak more highly of how comforting it was to know that I had a qualified, caring attorney and staff handling my case. Mr. Banafshe is truly a skilled attorney...I would highly recommend him to my family and friends moving forward.”

“Ryan has made a frustrating experience as manageable as possible. I highly recommend Ryan. He understands how stressful an accident can be and I truly appreciate him taking a Saturday afternoon to meet with me...I definitely recommend you call him”

“My opinion, and experience that when I hired the Banafshe Law Firm, I couldn't have hired a better lawyer or firm. They have been very personal, informative, patient with me, professional and thorough in dealing with my accident.”

“From my initial contact with them they were very professional... My case was handled in a timely fashion, with an outstanding settlement. Anyone looking for a Law Firm to handle their case I highly recommend Banafshe Law Firm.”
