Upon graduation from law school, Aslin joined a firm specializing in medical malpractice defense. After practicing on the defense side for 2 years, Aslin was certain she wanted to be on the other side, representing the injured and fighting for those who can’t fight alone. Aslin prides herself on representing her clients with passion and integrity, holding her clients’ hands through some of their darkest days. Her colleagues call her “tiger girl” and her clients call her their friend. She loves nothing more than standing up for the "little guy" and making sure their voices are heard, both in and out of the courtroom.

Born and raised in the San Fernando Valley, Ms. Tutuyan is multilingual, speaking English, Armenian, and Turkish. Her greatest and most proud accomplishment is being Mommy to her two children. Outside of the courtroom, you will find Ms. Tutuyan in a gym, on a running track or teaching indoor cycling classes. She is a loyal "Pelotoner" and loves riding with her fellow Law Mamas. Aslin has recently also become a fur mommy to Teddy, who she describes as the littlest love of her life.
