Sasha J. Skaf
Sasha Jeanette Skaf is an associate attorney with Carpenter, Zuckerman & Rowley. Sasha joined the firm in 2018 after gaining experience at a business litigation defense firm in Los Angeles. She left the defense side in favor of plaintiff’s work, seeking justice and channeling her energy into making injured plaintiffs whole again.
Since joining the firm, Sasha has recovered millions of dollars for her clients. She is a Los Angeles personal injury lawyer who is energetic, passionate, relentless, and whole-heartedly committed to protecting her clients from insurance companies and securing remarkable results.
Sasha takes a holistic approach to litigation. Not only does she focus on legal strategy and diligently litigating each case she handles, but she also devotes incredible time and effort into getting to know her clients and tailoring her methodology to each of their individual needs.
“I believe in treating my clients as more than just a case file,” Sasha says. “I get to know them personally, hearing them out and giving them my time.”
Sasha received her undergraduate degree from Occidental College majoring in Diplomacy and World Affairs, and she went on to obtain her J.D. from Loyola Law School in Los Angeles. She is licensed to practice law in California.
Sasha grew up in a home that had a profound respect and appreciation of the law. Her father was a lawyer in Lebanon where he had his own practice, but his office was destroyed during the civil war. He eventually emigrated to the United States in his early 40s and took on a new career, but even with his change in livelihood, the law always stuck with him… and he instilled those values onto his family.
“Our household approached everything by way of making your case, arguing your point, and getting your way that way — by winning the argument and being the most persuasive,” Sasha recalls. “Usually this approach involved me trying to get my way on something that I was told I was not allowed to do. However, it evolved over time into something I loved and was able to use as I got older in the real world. I learned that this ability to express myself, speak up, argue a position, and get the outcome I wanted was my best tool to navigate life and help those around me.”
Today Sasha uses the values she gained throughout her childhood and the skills she has acquired as a litigator to protect the rights of injury victims. She says what drives her each day as a personal injury attorney is her desire to achieve justice for people who are being treated as dispensable by insurance companies and big businesses.
It’s Sasha’s mission to help these accident victims make their voices heard and ensure they are fairly compensated for the life-altering injuries and losses they suffered.
