Recipients of the Lawyers Club of San Diego C. Hugh Friedman New Lawyer Award:

2017 Parisima Roshanzamir

At the 2017 Annual Dinner we presented the C. Hugh Friedman New Lawyer Award to Parisima Roshanzamir. Roshanzamir is an Iranian-American immigrant who came to this country when she was only 13 years old. She faced many challenges including a new language, culture, and community. After overcoming each one, she attended California Western School of Law and worked as a trial attorney for several years before starting her own practice in 2015, Roshanzamir Law. Roshanzamir now specializes in working with people who have been injured or have lost a loved one.

Roshanzamir joined Lawyers Club in 2010, while she was still in law school, and quickly found that Lawyers Club provided a community of sisterhood where she felt she belonged in the San Diego legal community.

Roshanzamir is deeply committed to Lawyers Club and its mission, as evidenced by her steadfast involvement in the organization. Roshanzamir co-chaired this year’s very successful Red, White and Brew, which raises money for Lawyers Club’s charitable foundation, the Fund for Justice. She served previously as co-chair of the Networking Events Committee for two years, which organizes events for members to network and grow their professional and personal relationships. She has also been involved in many other committees since she joined Lawyers Club, including the Annual Dinner Committee, Professional Advancement Committee, and Diverse Women’s Committee.

As a practitioner and business owner, Roshanzamir has demonstrated leadership and professionalism in the San Diego legal community. Roshanzamir gets results for clients, which earned her a 2017 Super Lawyers Rising Stars Award.
