Words cannot express the gratitude I have for Robert and his staff. I contacted Robert via email around 1:30am out of desperation and I received a phone call same day. I was immediately put at ease by speaking with Robert regarding my case. My ex-husband had filed for full custody of our daughter for the second time in five years. Needless to say, I was in a state of shock and disbelief and desperate for help. Robert and I met a few days later and after reviewing all of the information I had to disprove the allegations, he took on my case. Four months later, my ex-husband not only dropped his full custody suit, but settled out of court to modifications on my terms. Robert, being the knowledgeable and stellar attorney he is, compromised with opposing counsel and my ex-husband, and managed to get my ex to agree to $10,000 in contribution towards my attorney fees. Robert and his staff are very forthcoming with information. They are very straight forward and always kept me up to date on new developments. I felt completely safe and knew that every person working on my case had my best interest at heart; as well as my daughter. I wouldn't have had the outcome I did without the care and representation of Robert Farzad. I highly recommend Farzad Family Law to anyone that is starting or going through a family law matter.

When my ex-wife filed papers for more custody and child support, I chose the attorneys at Farzad Family Law. They were professional, honest and always had my best interest in mind. They were always quick to return my phone calls and emails, and never beat around the bush. They will be honest and strait forward with you about your case. Because of all these amazing qualities, I was able to protect my children and actually had child support awarded to me. I can't thank the attorneys at Farzad Family Law enough for the care and dedication they put into my case. I recommend this law firm to anybody that is going through a divorce or custody battle.

When I first came to Farzad Family Law, I only saw my son six hours per week total. I had no idea how I was going to be able to increase my time and play a major role in his life. From the moment that Robert became my attorney, I knew that I had made one of the best decisions of my life. Robert and his entire team were wonderful. They always went the extra mile to answer all of my questions and that I fully understood every step of the process. Robert's dedication to my case was apparent immediately and for the first time I felt that everything would work out. He was always willing to take my calls and responded to all of my emails, no matter what the question was. Robert did an excellent job of keeping me grounded and my expectations realistic. I never felt unprepared or worried in any situation because I knew I had Robert on my side. The first day in court Robert increased my time to overnights every other weekend. Later, when we were back in court, I was telling Robert stories about my son. He smiled and said that's exactly why he does what he does, "for the kids." Robert's professionalism, knowledge of family law, and kindness make it easy to see why he is so good at what he does. He fought very hard for my son and me and was behind us every step of the way. I will always be thankful for everything he did and I will never work with anyone other than Robert and Farzad Family Law.

Farzad & Mazarei represented me in my divorce case. You are probably going through the same emotions as I was, confusion, anger, frustration but most of all sadness to have to go through this process. Rest assured, Farzad & Mazarei's and their professional staff made me feel completely at ease as I went through this tough time. Their legal team helped me understand the volumes of California divorce law and protected my best interest in my case. At the end, my legal team saved me a lot of money and I won many of the issues that were brought up in my divorce proceedings. I can truly say that I would highly recommend Farzad & Mazarei to anyone who was going through a divorce.

Farzad & Mazarei represented me in a problematic child support case. This case had been going on for quite a few years and all advice I'd been given was negative and hopeless at best. My problems seemed to be insurmountable. I was literally at my wit's end. Amazingly, with Farzad & Mazarei's representation, the results they were able to obtain for me were better than I could have ever imagined. I'm usually not given to dramatic statements, but to say that I felt as if my life were suddenly "given back to me" is truly an understatement. I would, without any reservations whatsoever, very highly recommend them to anyone caught up in any aspect of the complicated, tangled legal web of family court.

In 2006, I was hit with the biggest change in my life, a bitter divorce. I had been married for over 18 years, had two beautiful girls and everything one could ask. Needless to say, this was the most difficult time of my life, a 2 ½ year divorce that ended in 2008. So I thought - In 2011, I was hit by the surprise of an Order to Show Cause from the Ex wanting long term support. I had no idea where to begin or how to protect my new wife and what we rebuilt over those 3 years. I had already been with two Family Law Firms which I would never recommend and searching for another was terrifying. Along comes "Farzad & Mazarei" Very professional, Thanks a million Matt - Matt was there for me throughout the process and has been there for me since. He counseled me on what needed to be revised regarding the proposed documents and kept me informed. He consistently listened to my concerns and validated me. He continues to look out for my personal interests and has represented me fairly and equitably during the hardest time of my life. Through his efforts and determination, Matt was able to reach a favorable outcome that I didn't think was possible. I recommend Farzad & Mazarei, without reservation and have done so to family, and friends. My parting words to Farzad & Mazarei and "Matt" I feel as if I'm losing a friend, I can't thank you enough for all you have done.

It is not an exaggeration to say that the life I lead today is due to the work of Robert Farzad. I was ensnared in a deadly trap by a vengeful ex-wife intent on depriving me of the wealth I worked very hard for while at the same time alienating me from my children. The process was never-ending, I was slowly bleeding to death under unaffordable payments and I was deprived of seeing my young son. Then, I got smart and did what I should have done originally. I fired my existing lawyer and hired Robert. From that point on, despite my ex's efforts at obstructing the process with every means at her disposal, the ending was already written, and all that remained was for the narrative that Robert promised to play out. Robert cleverly maneuvered my ex into binding arbitration. He was impeccably prepared for the hearing and literally eviscerated my ex while she was under oath. By the time he was done, the arbitrator saw my ex for who she really was. The judgment reflected this in its entirety. I was awarded virtually all remaining assets, visitation was set according to my wishes and support cut to next to nothing. After the judgment was rendered, Robert worked relentlessly to enforce it despite my ex's efforts to obstruct. Finally, he obtained full custody of my son for me. Throughout the process, Robert was very fair with his billing, and I feel that the money I spent was worth it.

When it came time to file my divorce, I knew things would get very messy. My ex-wife was hostile, financially aggressive and determined to fight me at every turn. From the beginning, Farzad & Mazarei alleviated my concerns and significantly lowered my stress level. They immediately analyzed my situation and put together a sound strategy to achieve the best outcome for my divorce. Throughout the process they gave me great legal advise to avoid costly mistakes. Furthermore, they worked efficiently on my case by focusing their time on the issues that really mattered while avoiding legal fluff or minor issues that drag on. I highly recommend this law firm.
Farzad & Mazarei, specifically Attorney Matthew Sundly, has represented my interests in an ongoing and difficult custody situation for the last 4 years. There is no one else I would want to represent me. The professionalism, communication and interest in my case are second to none. Without Mr. Sundly's commitment and personal attention to the details of my case, I fear what the outcome might have been. Knowing Mr. Sundly to the level I do, I know the rest of this law firm is nothing short of top shelf. If you need legal representation for matters within their area of practice and expertise, you cannot go wrong with this law firm. I highly recommend their services.
I was referred to Farzad & Mazarei by a close friend of mine. From the first phone call to the final court appearance, the professionalism and attention to detail of the staff were nothing short of fantastic. They kept me informed and most importantly, they got me results. I have to thank Matt and Holly most of all, they really got me through a difficult situation. I'd recommend Farzad & Mazarei to anyone going through a divorce, custody, separation and want to get the results they know can't be had without professional help.
Farzad & Mazarei represented me in my divorce and child custody case. I am so grateful to have found them and could not have asked for a more attentive or compassionate law firm during this trying time. I always knew what to expect: honesty, integrity, professionalism and they always had my best interest at the forefront. I have and will continue to highly recommend them to anyone seeking legal representation for a divorce proceeding.
My ex wife went after me for what she claimed were medical bills for my daughter but were really almost all educational expenses. In the past, I have had multiple bad experiences with divorce attorneys, whom I spent fortunes on. So when this case came up, I went on my own as a pro per, since I could not believe anyone would take the ex's claim serious. How wrong I was, the case turned bad and I thought I was going to have a large judgment against me because of a recommendation made by a court appointed referee. I thought I would lose and owe low six figures to the ex. I was referred to Robert Farzad and his law firm. Robert is an amazing attorney. He turned the case around by finding due process errors in the court's order and the court appointed referee's recommendations. By the time Robert was done, the court set aside its own order and my ex's case started to fall apart because he was able to show that the case didn't have merit. Robert filed an attorney fee motion against my ex since she makes significantly more money than I do and that became the catalyst for her dismissing the case, paying part of my lawyer's fees in the process and paying me child support. Robert gets every detail, he prepares like nothing I have ever seen, and he is an encyclopedia of legal knowledge. Also he is a gentleman and a real advocate who wants to win your case. If you have serious money at stake, he is the attorney that I would recommend in a moment.
Farzad and Mazarei are a competent and objective professional family law firm who provides sound and consistent counsel. They are supported by a strong legal team who were impressively responsive to me. Matt and Robert always ensured I was aware of the potential downside of each issue we reviewed. They strike the right balance between taking assertive positions and the legal cost of those decisions so that I could exercise appropriate judgment on each issue. I found this approach to be quite unique and it ensured I reached a highly satisfactory judgment. I highly recommend working with Farzad and Mazarei.
