I usually don't write reviews, but I have to give credit when it's deserved! Scott Kosner is an outstanding attorney. My case is a divorce and child custody case that is extremely complex. Scott has managed to pretty much settle my entire case! He said " I am not a miracle worker". Honestly Scott is pretty darn close to a miracle worker! When I originally did my search on avvo and thumbtack it was a Sunday morning. I was stressed didn't know what to do or where to start! About 15 mins I received an email from Scott with his personal cell phone number. I sent him a text explained my situation and he responded! On a Sunday! He put my mind to ease told me don't worry about money we can figure out a plan. Prior to hiring Scott I went for the free consultation and he explained my case what I was up against etc... he didn't rush me took his time I felt comfortable and at ease. After I would send Scott questions about certain things and he would always get back to me. I hired Scott last min like a week before court and he was ready and prepared for my case! He even guided the opposing council and explained to her what action was needed. Of course, all in my best interest! Scott has a wealth of knowledge and has great strategic planning to make sure in the end the decision is fair and in his clients best interest. Scott went over and beyond and it's not about the money he truly cares about the outcome of your case and your best interest. If you need a great attorney Scott is the man you need!!! I can't thank Scott enough for his help!! Such a blessing!!! Thank You! Felicia T.
Vanessa is an amazing support and resource. I've been working with her through the initial filing of my divorce and all of the custody issues that are popping up along the way. There have been some emergency issues that have needed to be tended to immediately and she has worked with me right away to get any documents taken care of as soon as I need them. There have been plenty of times that I worry that I'm asking too last minute or for too much and she always makes me feel like a priority. She has been a support throughout the entire process through each step. She will put any documents together and give you the opportunity to check and double check everything for accuracy. She's been the best resource I've had during this process.

Looking over divorce papers
Pondeva & Sohrab, APC helped my husband get his green card through our marriage. He had some problems of being here illegally for many years and they were able to tell us exactly what needed to be done. They took care of the entire case from the beginning to the end and I am happy to say my husband is now a Green Card holder! Thanks Pondeva & Sohrab,APC!
I sought the assistance from Miguel on my own divorce since November 2014 since then until recently, He was always helping me with paperwork that included getting our home in Palos Verdes resolved in the courts. It was a simple divorce case except for the home because my ex did not want to participate willingly. Finally, with Miguel's help, It was resolved in Torrance Court house. I am grateful for his help. He is proffesioal, affordable and I happily recommend him.
I appreciate how professional and thorough Mr. Piety was for my divorce mediation process. He was very knowledgeable, provided great advice and took his time with us, answering all our questions and responding promptly as questions were emailed. The process was emotional but thankfully Mr. Piety assisted in making it smooth. I highly recommend his services to anyone facing this tough life experience.
Thomas Scully gave me a extremely indepth free consultation that completely relieved my anxiety & stress. He has a great manner. superb listening skills, is very empathetic and takes the time to explain what a defendant needs to know. I am 100% certain if I decide to file a counter claim that Thomas Scully will be the lawyer I will hire.
After researching for a divorce lawyer for several days, I found Robert Greenberg. What stood out to me was his passion to help people more than a passion for billable hours. From the start, he explained the divorce process, what his responsibility was and how he billed. I was impressed by his professional ethics and how he sent me a financial accounting every month. After listening to my concerns and frustrations, he was very gifted at sifting out the main points and streamlining my case. He was straight forward about issues that were not viable in Court or were viable but to what end, and would offer options, so that I could make a wise decision on whether to spend money or not. I really appreciated walking away from a meeting feeling that he had my back, and that was worth its weight in gold. I knew I could call him if an emergent situation were to arise. He attended a custody mediation where I was told to sign papers but Mr Greenberg would not let me sign until he read it. Had I signed it as written, I would had to move out of my house, which was and is not necessary. I'm so grateful he was there. I like Mr Greenberg's energy, professionalism and integrity. If you are looking for an attorney who keeps his cool (and yours) both in and out of Court, I highly recommend him. And my favorite part, he is compassionate, even while working towards your best outcome.
An Excellent Attorney who has his clients best interest at heart.
John made our divorce mediation process as painless as possible. His gentle manner, communication skills, and integrity were huge assets while my husband and I were going through the difficult period of ending our marriage and dividing our assets. He was also extremely patient as we were scrambling to sell our house and settle our financials. I highly recommend his well-honed services.

I have over 19 years of experience in family law and general civil litigation. I give my clients personal attention. You will not have to deal with paralegals. I will advise you every step of the way.
I hired a different lawyer and asked him to be passionate about our very sensitive case and fight with everything he had. Our first day of court he didn't even show but allowed for someone to come in his place outside his firm. Mrs. Middleton showed up in his place and is everything that I requested in a lawyer and person. I wanted someone who would help fight my case with the passion that I would as if it was her herself going through it. She has given us everything she has so far and I didn't get that with the first lawyer I hired. She will give you everything she can and she doesn't tell you what you want to hear but she does listen to what you want. I thank God for her everyday and even more so when I step into court knowing I have her on my side and speaking and fighting with passion love and care. Thank you for all you have done for my family.
