– Automobile Defects/Lemon Law
– Auto Repair Fraud
– Products Liability

Margarian earned his undergraduate degree in biological sciences from the University of Southern California in a total of three years, while concurrently conducting scholarly research in gene therapy and earning the highest departmental awards for two consecutive years. Upon graduating from USC, Margarian combined his intellectual capacity with his relentless passion for standing up for the right cause and matriculated in law school, rejecting his admission to a tier one medical school.[1]

Margarian obtained his Juris Doctor degree from the USC Gould School of Law, where he concentrated his studies on business and corporate law, real estate law, property law and California civil procedure. While in law school, he co-founded a nationwide automobile sales and leasing brokerage. His venture in the automotive industry gave him first-hand exposure to the innermost nuances of automobile sales and leasing, which are rarely accessible to the public.
