(Raleigh, NC) Marcilliat & Mills PLLC, with offices in Raleigh, Wilmington and Charlotte, is pleased to announce the addition of Attorney Parisa Houshmandpour to its North Carolina criminal defense team. Ms. Houshmandpour’s legal experience, coupled with her passion for defending the accused, make her a great for the firm’s criminal defense practice.

Ms. Houshmandpour is no stranger to hardship. She came to the United States at a young age as a refugee from Iran. While she is fluent in Farsi, at the time she arrived in the U.S. Ms. Houshmandpour spoke little English. She overcame this obstacle, mastering English, graduating with honors from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and earning her law degree from Elon University.

During law school, Ms. Houshmandpour interned with the Guilford County District Attorney’s office, gaining insight and experience into how a prosecutor builds a case against a criminal defendant. After earning her license to practice law in North Carolina, Attorney Houshmandpour opened a successful law practice, applying her knowledge of the courtroom and legal training to defending those accused of a crime in the Raleigh area.

Through her life experiences, Attorney Houshmandpour is able to relate to others who are also faced with substantial challenges; her clients benefit not only from this empathy but also from her legal experience and drive to assist others who are facing the North Carolina criminal justice system. According to a former client, Ms. Houshmandpour, “[T]ruly cares about her clients and that becomes clear from the very first time you talk to her.” She is, “compassionate and ethical,” and is a “go-to person for any legal issue.”

Ms. Houshmandpour is a member of the North Carolina State Bar Association, the 10 th Judicial District and the Wake County Bar Association. Marcilliat & Mills PLLC proudly welcomes Attorney Houshmandpour to its Raleigh law office.

North Carolina v. J.S.
Indecent Exposure
Potentially Facing: 30 days in Jail
Result: Case Dismissed

Marcilliat & Mills PLLC acted quickly, meeting with the DA’s office to mitigate on behalf of their client, who had no prior criminal history. The Defendant had cooperated fully with the officer. At defense counsel’s prompting, the ADA spoke with his Law Enforcement Officers and determined that Defendant had been through enough already. Dismissed on the first court date.
