Kerendian & Associates is Ripoff Report Verified
Ripoff Report Verified™ .. part of Ripoff Report Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation & Customer Satisfaction Program.A program that benefits the consumer, assures them of complete satisfaction and confidence when doing business with a member business..

The information provided in this report below is based on comments made by Shab Kerendian during an onsite inspection held by a third party verification company with no biases towards Kerendian & Assocites, Inc.

Kerendian & Associates is a law firm founded in 1997. They dedicate themselves to provided legal representation that is very personal and detailed. Shab Kerendian stated the following about his company, "I establish a very personal relationship with my clients and one of the reasons we become very close is because a case takes about maybe a year sometimes to three or four years to go through the process. Whoever becomes my client we get to interact with each other for a number of years so we get close." Kerendian & Associates works mainly in business litigation and real estate litigation.

Leads for Kerendian & Associates are primarily obtained through referrals from past clients. Potential clients will always receive a free consult the first time they call. From there Kerendian & Associates will establish if their services best suit the client’s needs. If so, the appropriate paperwork is signed and they begin their professional relationship.


During the onsite interview Mr. Kerendian was asked to describe a situation where a client was not satisfied with the level of service they received. He expressed that sometimes clients are dissatisfied with the vernacular used in certain documents. In order to remedy this, "I show them what I'm going to file ahead of time because in 20 years of practice I've learned...just show the client what you are filing, let them give you their feedback ahead of time and then you can incorporate that into the document before it goes out." Additionally Mr. Kerendian is adamant when it comes to effective communication with his clients, "I really try hard before any hearing and before we go to court to explain to the client what that risks are, what the possibilities of success are, and what are the potential issues with the case so that they understand. In court it’s more of an art than a science."

When asked to comment on complaints posted on Ripoff Report's website Mr. Kerendian expressed that a potential client called in to inquire about their services. She requested to send various documents in for Mr. Kerendian to review. He stated that this was fine, but not to submit the original copies of the documents. However Kerendian & Associates did not accept her case, "we didn't take the case, we didn't sign the contract." This was primarily because the potential client could not afford the required services, "she asked me to keep the paperwork until she lets me know, until she comes up with the money. So, I saved the box for her." Mr. Kerendian periodically reached out to inquire as to how they should handle the rest of the documents, "I never heard from her until I got an email while I was on vacation saying I refused to give the documents back to her." However, this was far from the truth, and Mr. Kerendian and his office did everything they could to submit the documents back to the client, unfortunately she blocked their number. The issue was resolved after they submitted the documents via an overnight FedEx shipment.

Kerendian & Associates is proud to be a part of Ripoff Reports Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program, "I like the communication part. Verifying the truth and what's happening. I want to show people who we really are."


" We believe in providing a custom-designed representation for each one of our clients to address their needs. We believe that each case is different, and each client's needs are different. Each case has its own events, and it is essential to know exactly the goal or goals the client intends to reach in the pending litigation. We believe communication, understanding and updating each client are key factors to reach success in a case. We do our best and commit to making sure that all of our clients' questions are answered.

Kerendian & Associates, Inc. Shab Kerendian Los Angeles California


Ripoff Report would like to let readers know that Ripoff Report emailed this customer so the member business could make things right with them. When a business joins the Corporate Advocacy Program, Ripoff Report emails everyone from the past so the member business can make things right with them. Of course, everything within reason. In order to confirm that the complaints were resolved, Ripoff Report is copied on all responses so we can insure that the member business did right by their customer. The author of the Ripoff Report below never responded to our offer to help them.


The documents were sent out as soon as the request for the box of documents was received. The law firm was contacted, and the potential client was asked to only send copies, not originals. The law firm agreed to review the documents free of charge, which was done, but the firm did not take the case. The documents were kept safely and were available for the client to be picked up. No one came to pick up the box. As soon as we heard of the problem, the firm shipped the box to the client expeditiously. Maybe the messengers went to the wrong address as our office was open and the box ready to be picked up.



I sent a box of legal files to Shab Kerendian in april 2013. While he declined to take my case,(I know now that he never opened the box!) he said I would have to retrieve my files because "he couldn't afford the cost to ship them back to me".

I sent TWO commercial carriers to his office, neither one was able to pick up the files, one was told the person I had been instructed by Shab to contact for said files didn't work there, and the other was told there was nothing to pick up. I have filed a complaint with the State Bar who said ONE request for the return of files is standard, anything more is a violation.

I received an email from Shawn Kerendian saying thery were sending the files if I could identify the box....I did so with an email that he sent with a photo (which is how I know it was never opened) yet the files remain in his office. I have no idea what kind of work they actually do, in fact my first communication with them was very positive, but this hijacking of my legl files with original documents is not a great indication of their success.
