In my opinion, hiring the right attorney is extremely important. I took a month (one per day) in “interviewing” and consulting with 20 different attorneys and making copious notes on each one. Robert Greenberg became my attorney. Being from out of state and needing powerful, confident and competent representation was a necessity. In every aspect of communication, he was very accessible and provided the path that we needed to pursue for a successful outcome. On a personal level, he was able to put me at ease when he felt I was seemingly stressed over the situation. He is able to bring a New York Bulldog attorney attitude along with a laid back California easiness within his persona and court manner, which I feel is a plus, especially when dealing with the uncertainty of court situations. I’m very pleased that not only were we able to have a successful verdict and am very appreciative and satisfied with his effort and performance. I am sure that those who “interview” dozens of attorneys (including Robert Greenberg) will find that retaining Robert Greenberg is a decision that will put their stressful family law legal issues at great ease. You will be happy by retaining him as your attorney. Chris T.

Everything about this experience was concise, informative, and professional, yet rapid thanks to my selection of Mr. Greenberg. I took my time selecting an attorney and my research and gut instinct paid off 10-fold. Robert guided me the entire way like a father and in the end I've got a professional connection that will last a lifetime. I have and will continue to recommend anyone in need of a family law attorney to absolutely connect with him, you won't regret it! - Jimmy

So far I have had my initial appointment with the Zahn Law Office for a divorce. The process was clearly explained to me and my questions were answered. I did not feel pressured to make a decision on selecting counsel. I came away feeling very comfortable and am happy to have the Zahn Law Office representing me.

Mr. Zahn took on my case despite the fact that I didn't have much to pay. He worked hard for me and was a true comfort during a difficult time. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a qualified family law attorney.

Laureen was a true professional. She has a very extensive knowledge of many different types of law including Family Law, Civil Law, Estate Planning Law and Corporate Law. Laureen helped me with my messy divorce and then created a new Trust for me. When we were finished with my personal matters, she helped me incorporate my business and collect some debts by filing lawsuits, winning and collecting the money judgment. You definitely will not go wrong hiring Laureen. Anita

Laureen helped me patent my invention and obtained a trade mark for me. She was fast and professional and really knew her stuff. I talked to several attorneys before hiring Laureen but they seemed to be guessing on what to do. Laureen knew exactly what to do and it was done fast and professionally. Thanks Laureen.

I needed work on a project which had been turned down by several attorneys. Cesar was referred to me. The project also happened to need a translation. I had not been able to find anyone who could do a certified translation. Without asking for it, Cesar immediately offered that I use his translation team, who could certify my translation. He did not charge a fee, only the direct fee from the translators. The turn around was quick, accurate, and at a very reasonable price. Cesar gave me free advice on my issue. I was very pleased with his ability to discern the essence of my issue and provide a solution, all the while with a conscientious grace and courtesy. If I need an attorney again, I will certainly contact Cesar Libanati!

During my time working with Cesar Libanati I felt like I was in good hands. He made sure to keep me up to date on our case and offered great advice which turned out to produce great results. I have to say that the professionalism, detail, and genuine interest makes Surfside Law stand out. I will definitely recommend to friends and family. Thank you!!!

Last summer I was involved in a limited civil case and I needed help drafting my complaint. Because there was only $12,000 at stake I didn't want to hire an attorney for $300 per hour. I described my complaints to Mr. Okhovat and through his excellent legal research abilities, he was able to pinpoint the correct cause of action and put me in touch with an attorney, in his network of lawyers. The attorney did the work and won the case for a fraction of normal costs, due to the fact that Mr. Okhovat had done he majority of the time consuming working, for which I had to pay an attorney $300 per hour. I thank him for his services and highly recommend him.

I hired Mr. Okhovat because of various reasons: 1. First and foremost, his voice and demeanor was extremely calming and immediately took my troubles away. 2. Although his a capable and licensed attorney his fees were lower than most paralegals. 3. I got a prompt quote and a courteous phone call which took a load off my mind. 4. My work was done promptly , professionally and with a high level of care. I would recommend Mr. Okhovat of Okhovat Law Group for anyone who needs a n honest and competent attorney.

I hired Mr. Okhovat because he was the first actual attorney who quoted me. Everyone else was either a paralegal or a law clerk. His price was also extremely fair. Mr. Okhovat was not only extremely professional but also very knowledgeable. He answered all my questions and helped me become debt-free. I would highly recommend Mr. Okhovat to anyone who needs a bankruptcy attorney.

It was a bit rough finding out how much trouble I was in but Mr. McDaniel didn't pull any punches. I had to pay the other side (whom I hated), but Mr. McDaniel showed me the risk and likelihood that I was going to cough up some money to this scumbag plaintiff.

Dear LawFreq... I am sending this to the bankruptcy "guru" of California. I don't even know where to begin, so I'll just start with a HUUUUUUUUGE THANK YOU for making our bankruptcy granting possible... a Chapter 7, no less. As you may recall, we had already met with SEVERAL ATTORNEYS before speaking with you, all of whom wanted to charge us BIG $$$ and all of whom said NO WAY to a Chapter 7. Then, we found LawFreq and YOU GOT IT - a Chapter 7!!! Again, you have done us such a GREAT service. NO ATTORNEY EVER SAID IT COULD BE DONE... but you did it. ALL THE ATTORNEYS we spoke with wanted to charge BIG $$$ and put us in a Chapter 13... which is NOT WHAT WE WANTED!!! However, your help and your fees... for working a MIRACLE... are nothing compared to what we could have endured. I cannot sing your praises enough, LawFreq!!! I have already told 4 people about your services!!!"

Law Freq Legal Services is hands down the most knowledgable paralegal in Santa Clarita! I was treated with respect in a very professional manner, but, also with humor. In addition, their fee was within my budget. 5 stars.

I was in need of an attorney for a child custody battle and move away case at the Van Nuys courthouse. The whole case took about six months. The service Heidi provided was exceptional. She answered all my questions advised me of my options. What set her apart from other attorneys I had spoken with was after speaking with her I felt two things 1 confident that I had found an attorney that cared and would fight for me 2 at ease that I knew that I had someone I could talk to about my case and not be charged for every phone call. Now in regards to my case Heidi was able to get me everything I asked for and won on every point in court. She came to court on time every time and was prepared. That is a big plus to me as every time in court was quick and never was an all day event. I can't thank Heidi enough for what she was able to do for me and I strongly recommend her to anyone who needs an amazing attorney in family law.

THE BEST ATTORNEY YOU WILL FIND!!!!! Heidi is SUCH an amazing attorney that treats me like I'm her most important client. I have had several family law attorneys, it is VERY VERY hard to find one like Heidi. I highly recommend Heidi she is such an outstanding attorney. She goes above and beyond to ensure I understand the process of everything. The service and attention Heidi provides is incomparable. She always answers all my questions and advises me of my options. She is always there when you need her. She's not only honest but she truly cares, I love her, and can’t thank her enough for all the hard work and attention she does for me!

Christina Shaffer is not just a lawyer who is going to fight for us but she is someone who really cares for her clients. She has showed me that time after time along with her true professionalism and work ethic makes her standout from the rest. I can always count on her and even though I have moved away I'll still continue to go back to her when needed because she has jumped over backwards for me. I highly recommend her because she is simply the best.

About

Our practice takes family law cases, including adoptions, surrogacy, dissolutions, parentage, prenuptial agreements, cohabitation agreements, domestic violence, guardianship and dependency cases in Ventura County and parts of Los Angeles County. Admitted to the California Bar in December 1996, I started as a solo practitioner in Westlake Village. Later, I began enjoying work on key areas of dissolution, custody, parentage plus cohabitation issues, prenuptial contracts, surrogacy, adoptions and division of retirement plans. I moved to the office I have now in Thousand Oaks (Newbury Park) in 2005. I was raised by divorced parents and have been my own client in a divorce case. I realize why clients become depressed and arrive at the court with devotional books and best friends. I share my children with my former wife on a weekly rotational basis. Fighting in court (litigation) is not necessary, although I do litigation (this is often unavoidable, especially in custody cases). Lawyers are also able to provide 'limited scope' services. New clients are entitled to a free initial consultation. We accept credit cards. Virtually every family lawyer asks for an advance payment, commonly (and incorrectly) called a 'retainer.' I like, virtually all family lawyers charge hourly, although, on rare occasions, I have charged a flat rate for a case. My hourly rate is $295.

About

As an experienced mediator and trial lawyer, I bring a respectful and knowledgeable approach to the divorce process. Right now, you may feel distrusting of your spouse and anxious about your future. When circumstances are so emotionally charged, it can be difficult to know the right path forward. You may even find yourself questioning how you can even know what you need to secure your family’s well-being for the future. I bring a sensitive but firm presence to the divorce process to be sure that you are able to move forward with dignity and confidence. Mediation is a genuine alternative to the adversarial court system that was designed to meet the needs of families working their way through a difficult time of transition. Some people can be concerned about getting a fair outcome if they mediate their divorce. I can work with you to create an agreement that is both enforceable and fair. Mediation with a trained professional is a safe, enforceable way to end your marriage with dignity, privacy and respect. If you are ready to learn more about choosing mediation, contact me. You don’t have to feel bad if things haven’t gone the way you had hoped, in your case so far. There is still a way to save your divorce from becoming a "war of the roses". Contact me if you'd like to learn more about getting through the divorce process efficiently, respectfully and cost-effectively.
