Professional Experience

Current
Ashod’s assignments at the State Bar involved the most complex cases brought by the Office of Chief Trial Counsel. As the lead State Bar prosecutor in high-profile cases, Ashod served as ethics consultant for the Office of the District Attorney in Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino Counties, the State Attorney General’s Office, the United States Attorney’s Office, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Fraud Division of Immigration Customs and Enforcement, the Consumer Fraud Protection Bureau, the Department of Real Estate, among others. One of the more noteworthy cases handled by Ashod Mooradian involved the disbarment of a loan modification attorney who had illegally charged thousands of clients over $30,000,000 in fees. In another disbarment case, an immigration attorney had committed EB-5 visa fraud by charging 100 foreign investors seeking legal residency $500,000 each in fees. This case was joined by the USCIS, the US Attorney’s Office and SEC ultimately leading to federal criminal and civil charges being filed. Due to his extensive trial experience and knowledge of State Bar Court caselaw and the applicable ethics statutes and rules, Ashod was selected to train new hires at the State Bar.
