Before I met Robert, I had never spent more than six hours per week with my eight month old son. I tried to fight for more time but was never able to succeed. I felt very lost and scared about what might happen because I had absolutely no understanding of the family court system. My first attorney would barely take my calls or inform me of what was going on.

I contacted Robert through his website and online was on the phone with him later that same day. I explained my situation to him and he said that he thought he might be able to help me. Even after our first conversation I already felt better about everything. I met Robert at his office to discuss my case in greater detail. That was a meeting that I will never forget.

After listening to me, Robert explained my options and the possibilities of what might happen. He was extremely upfront and honest with me. He then told me that he only accepts clients who are serious about their cases and who are willing to put in the hard work. This made understand that the only way Robert would fight for me was if I was willing to fight as hard, if not harder, for myself and my son. Right then, I knew that there was no one else I wanted to represent me. [Read more...]


I had a good reason to terminate the alimony that I was paying way over half of my marriage length. However my ex had a good reason to fight for it too. After a few minutes Google search, I found Farzad Family Law Firm as one of the highest positive ranking in the business. Honestly I didn’t look further searching and just called them and talk to Matt. He made a very well-thought plan for my case. Matt is truly a professional, knowledgeable, experienced, calm and detail oriented person who makes him a master in what he’s doing. After just ONE hearing, my alimony payments terminated. I can’t believe this, I’m so excited, he saved my financial life. I wish I had him with me during my divorce hearing. I’ll definitely recommend Matt Sundly and FARZAD Family Law firm.


Robert has been an incredible help during a very stressful, constant battle with Orange County DCSS. He and his team were always there to answer the phone, provide advice, and therefore, drastically lowering my stress level and anxiety. He was right, it takes a little bit of time and patience, but the outcome was finally both in the best interest of my kids and fair to me.

I’m quite happy with Farzad Family Law services. I have to extend my sincere appreciation to him and his staff in helping me with my endeavor.

This goes without saying, , in the future, Farzad Family Law will be my first choice in any legal issues.


I searched for about 4 months and talked to a lot of attorneys for my case to get custody of my 14 year old daughter. Finally I talked to Robert 3 times before I said yes to taking my case. I have had a lot of bad experiences with attorneys going up against my ex-husbands attorney. I was very scared that it would turn out like it has in the past with my case getting dismissed. Robert and Matthew reassured me that they knew how to fight for my daughter and I.

I felt very assured and comfortable. I could not have asked for a better attorney. He [Matthew] fought for my daughter with everything that he had. That meant a whole lot to me. The outcome of my case was when we finally went to trial, Matthew and the opposing attorney talked to the judge. Matthew concentrated on what was in the best interest for my daughter because opposing counsel was making it about me. I was very proud and impressed with how hard he fought to keep it about my daughter. I ended up with custody because my ex-husband decided not to put our daughter through anymore of it.

I was very impressed with how he handled everything and I gained a lot of respect for him as an attorney and a person throughout this whole process. Matthew is a really great man and attorney. He made me very proud. I certainly could not have done this without him. I am very grateful and I will miss him.
