Meet the Commonwealth’s Attorney Challengers, Episode 1: Parisa Dehghani-Tafti

“I am a longtime Arlington resident.  I’m married with two kids who attend public school in Arlington.  When I was 4 years old, my parents immigrated to the United States, seeking religious freedom.  My parents worked two and three jobs each to make ends meet, but I was fortunate to attend UC Berkeley on a combination of grants, loans, work study and scholarships. I decided to attend law school because a good friend was convicted of a crime he did not commit.”
