About Us

Be represented by an attorney, engineer, and contractor

Dr. Vida Tarassoly is a construction attorney, a registered civil/structural engineer, and a licensed contractor, with a Ph.D. in structural engineering from the University of Southern California. With over 25 years of practical experience in engineering and construction of complex projects for the public and private sectors, she is uniquely qualified to assist her clients in the dual capacities of an attorney as well as a technical expert. While other attorneys must rely on the expensive expertise of hired technical experts, Dr. Tarassoly evaluates the technical aspects of your case more cost-effectively and expeditiously, often at the initial meeting.

“I represent my clients as an attorney and a technical expert. Other construction attorneys would have to rely on hired technical experts to build your case, and issues commonly get lost in translation. I can simultaneously assess the technical strength of your case and develop the most effective strategy to represent your legal rights.”
