The Right Attorney

May Make All The Difference In The Outcome Of Your Case

Dedicated Legal Service

Most recently, Mr. Obagi has represented a wide array of clients in claims against governments, including for civil and educational rights violations, breach of contract, inverse condemnation and depravation of veteran's service-connected disability benefits. He has served as the unwavering strong voice of persons wronged by foreign countries, federal agencies, municipalities and local school districts.

Mr. Obagi has successfully litigated and tried several breach of contract and fraud cases, and obtained two awards for punitive damages after trial. After obtaining judgments for punitive damages, Mr. Obagi has asserted his clients' interests in U.S. Bankruptcy Courts, obtaining judgment for the non-dischargeability of debt incurred based on fraud and malicious injury.

An Aggressive, Effective Approach

Mr. Obagi has a strong judgment enforcement practice, and has successfully enforced judgments against defiant persons and institutions, including the country of Mexico. Mr. Obagi was associated as counsel after a local law firm had not been able to obtain payments on its judgment for eight years. That judgment was rendered for the Mexican Consulate's breach of contract with a janitorial services company. After eight months of aggressively pursuing Mexico, and obtaining orders to examine its Consular General, Mexico paid more than one and a half times the amount of the original judgment to settle.

Practice Areas

His practice includes consumer advocacy, including defending individuals from meritless collections actions. As consumer debt collection defense counsel, Mr. Obagi has successfully obtained dismissal of a poorly supported complaint brought by a junk debt buyer, and, in a separate action, the reversal of a default judgment, the quashing of a writ of execution, and cessation of wage garnishment order where the consumer was never even served with a complaint in the case.

Mr. Obagi has also prosecuted bad-faith insurers who have refused to perform their obligations under the policies procured by their insureds. Zein Obagi is dedicated to protecting and resolutely asserting his clients' interests, and Obagi Law Group, P.C.'s resources permits him and his team to provide the highest-level representation in each client's case.

Education & Bar Admissions

Mr. Obagi attended University of California, Berkeley and earned his B.A. in Political Science. He earned his J.D. from the University of Southern California Gould School of Law. He is currently admitted to practice law in the State of California, before the U.S. District Court for the Central and Southern Districts of California, and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. In addition, he has attained pro hac vice admission outside California.
