Occupying the

Leading Edge With Innovative Style, Proven Strategies, and Lasting Relationships By Dan Baldwin


adison Law, APC, has shown remarkable growth and has developed the knowledge, expertise, and resources to handle a wide range of legal challenges for local, regional, national and even international clients, including pioneering and establishing a firm position on the leading edge of a niche practice area. Madison Law was founded as a full-service legal firm with the help of three seasoned directors. It is now the “go-to” firm in serving clients with a unique consumer defense problem that is currently plaguing auto dealer and auto finance companies. Ali Parvaneh, James S. Sifers and Jenos Firouznam-Heidari began with the goal of providing services to businesses, but, as Firouznam-Heidari says, they soon found themselves dedicated to serving business people. “Our clients are our friends. They may often own or operate businesses, but they face personal legal issues as well. For that reason, we evolved to suit most of our clients’ legal needs. We value our friendships and long-lasting relationships with our clients.” In addition to the issues typically affecting businesses, such as consumer complaints, partnership disputes, and transactional matters, the firm evolved to suit a growing list of client needs—developing departments equipped to handle real estate, business, bankruptcy, family law, employment law, and personal injury matters. Madison Law also works closely with estate planning, immigration, and criminal attorneys to provide clients with a full array of services. The firm has 13 attorneys and a staff of 12.

On the Leading Edge of Consumer Defense Prior to starting Madison Law, Parvaneh, Sifers, and Firouznam-Heidari were involved in another firm, where they received a referral from a longtime client of Parvaneh’s for a business being targeted by a consumer attorney who wanted them to pay for cases in which these attorneys could find no wrongdoing. The attorneys at Madison Law dug in and successfully defended those cases. Their success quickly created a buzz within the auto dealer and finance industry which brought new clients pouring into their law firm. 16
