I retained Robert Farzad to represent me in a custody case for my son about 3 years ago. Finding a good family law attorney to help you successfully navigate Family court is difficult. My only regret is not retaining Robert Farzad sooner than I did!

I was served court documents when my son was just days old and I was in a complete panic. I knew NOTHING about family law. I chose a random family law attorney in a rush was represented by different attorney/firm in the beginning of my case for about 2 months. It was a horrible experience. There was no strategy plan in place, and my first attorney seemed like he just wanted to "cut a deal" and be done with my case. I was scared & frustrated.

One day, while sitting in OC family court next to my previous attorney, I saw Robert Farzad walk in the court room. He was extremely professional, confident, and I knew I wanted that attorney to take over my case. I needed someone who I felt would fight for me & my son, someone that I could put my confidence in.

I called the firm that day, and after hearing details of my case, Robert Farzad immediately made an appointment to meet with me. He reviewed my case, went over a strategy plan with me, and most importantly, gained my trust. Robert spent about 2 hours with me answering questions and offering advice on how we should move forward with my case. Robert was so knowledgeable and helpful. I retained him on the spot & went home that night feeling a huge weight off of my shoulders. I knew that finally I found a great attorney that I could trust to help me with my case.

The court battle was long, and I dealt with many of the other attorneys in the Farzad firm over the span of 2 years! Yvette Ochoa was very involved in my case. She is amazing as well!

The attorneys in the firm are all so intelligent & professional. The attorneys are responsive to emails (even on weekends), and Robert even gave me his personal cell phone number to make himself available.

All I can say is your children & peace of mind are important, and family law/family court can be especially scary. The attorneys at Farzad Family Law will take the best care of you & do everything in their power to make your case outcome as successful as possible!
Thank you Robert and Yvette!

"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. Divorce is a life-changing experience, and the end result will determine the quality of your life. If you don’t hire Robert, you are making a mistake, one that you will have to live with for many years. He has my highest recommendation."

"When it came time to make the painful decision to file for divorce, I was very nervous and didn’t know what to expect. I knew things would get ugly. My ex-wife was very hostile, financially aggressive and determined to fight me at every turn. From the beginning, the firm eased my concerns and 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.I was able to avoid financial ruin and best of all, I got custodial custody of my children. I highly recommend this law firm."

"Words cannot describe how grateful I am to you and your staff. My move away situation was horrible and I didn’t know what to expect. But after meeting with you, I knew I had found the best possible person to represent me. You were honest, telling me the truth about my case, good and bad. You prepared me for a potentially hard and long battle. Your team was so thorough and detailed oriented, while updating me every step of the way, responding to my emails right away, addressing my concerns clearly and compassionately.

Because of your amazing work, my ex husband decided to move as well because he realized he would never win against you. I feel sorry for any other council coming up against you!

Robert, you truly have given me my second chance at a happy life. I now get to start over and I could not have done it without you. I am indebted to you and hope you know how thankful I am to have met you, hired you and followed your advices all along. You were the light in my dark tunnel. Thank you Robert and Valerie. Thank you thank you thank you!"

"I can not say enough about Robert and the culture he has created throughout his firm! Client and outcome driven through-and-through, while keeping integrity and “humanness” center stage.

I hired Robert and his firm for my paternity case after 10 months with a top notch Los Angeles firm that fell victim to the same manipulations and game-playing my ex functions with. They weren’t able to make any progress. Robert “got it” from day one! In four months, due to his knowledge and skill-set, along with attention to my experiences and outcome goals, Robert had my paternity case settled with a final court order.

The integrity with which everyone on my case presented never faltered. Neither did their organization, competency or knowledge base. There was exemplary legal guidance and compassion for the realities of the family law system every step of the way.

My ONLY regret is that Robert (and Yvette!!) weren’t on my case from day one. I would not hesitate to recommend Farzad Family Law to anyone with honor, honesty and a child-centered desire for their case. They will receive the same in return and then some!"

"Let me first say this…FINDING A GOOD FAMILY LAW ATTORNEY IS HARD,HARD AS HELL! I was lucky to run into this firm. My situation began a couple years ago when my bitter ex filed court documents against me for custody. I had no idea about court and even less regarding family law. I was in a panic. I interviewed the first attorney I saw on yelp with 5 stars and hired him. He was a horrible attorney. He had no argumentative skills and no strategy plan. This cycle continued. I kept hiring horrible attorneys. I tried everything. I would even go to the oc courts and sit in hearings to see what attorneys appeared to be decent. Nothing worked! I continued to hire horrible attorneys at expensive prices. One day, while surfing the Web for legal information I ran into farzad law.

There was a wealth of information on his site (after reading this review, go to his site immediately if you are new to this family law thing). I was desperate for legal representation so I decided to call. I called and the secretary was really nice. She took my name and number and told me Robert Farzad (the owner and lead attorney ) would call me himself.

I have called big firms before and usually get second class treatment so I had doubt about actually talking to the head attorney. Not only did Robert call me back, but he called me back from the hospital. He had some medical emergency but still made time to talk to me about my legal issues. He never rushed me and made me feel comfortable. He even discussed a little strategy with me.

Believe me strategy in family law is REALLY important. This initial talk with Mr. Farzad was less than a month ago and his firm has already made significant changes with my case. The custody has literally been flipped. I have sole physical custody and mom has visitations. I don’t want to sound like a damn commercial but this firm is good. It’s not one attorney working on your case. They work together like a factory and make sure things stay on point. MATTHEW SUNDLY is the attorney from Farzad’s firm who is overseeing my case.

This review is already long as hell. I will do a separate review for MATT. But dads, mothers, whoever …..y’all really need to come to this firm…you can see the difference. I felt compelled to write this review because I know how hard it is to find a good hard working attorney. And trust me I know how stressful this is. It’s emotionally, physically, and financially stressful. This is my honest experience with them. If you have any questions send me a note. GOOD LUCK!"

"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.

Robert immediately went to work preparing my case.

Since things move slowly in family court, it took a while for my case to go in front of a judge. During that time, Robert did an excellent job of gathering all the facts and details he needed and preparing me for the fight that was ahead. He did a wonderful job of keeping my expectations realistic and kept me focused on the big picture.

When our day in court came, I felt very confident and comfortable with Robert fighting for me. At the very first preliminary hearing, Robert was able to increase my time to include overnights every other weekend even though I live in San Diego and my son lives in Orange County.

Robert was so well prepared that he knew every aspect of case inside and out. On several instances during the hearing, he even quoted multiple family law codes on the spot. This showed me the level of dedication that Robert was willing to give to my case was unparalleled.

Throughout the entire process of my custody battle and divorce, Robert won on every single motion and argument that was made. He and his entire team at Farzad Family Law were so professional, courteous, and caring.

Every one of his associates was always willing to take the time to make sure that completely understood everything and that all of my questions were fully answered no matter how big or how small. I now get to see me son on a very frequent and regular basis and I play a significant role in his life.

I will be eternally grateful for everything that Robert has done for my family.

It never felt like he treated me as just another client. He has a way of making it feel personal, as if you have a really good friend fighting in your corner. I will never entrust my case with anyone but Robert and his entire team at Farzad Family Law.

I highly recommend hiring him before you find yourself going against him."

"I can honestly say that working with Farzad Family Law has been a wonderful experience through a very difficult time. I’ve been working with Robert and his team for 3 1/2 years now. Never one have I felt as though I was just another client. Even during the slow times of my case such as waiting on continuances, distant court dates, or when nothing was happening legally I could always quickly get a hold of someone to answer my questions, provide legal advice, or guide me through a though situation.

I feel as though Robert has always been completely honest with me in managing my expectations and timelines and keeping them realistic. He has always taken the time to make sure I understand the law and the situation without ever talking down to me or making me feel uneducated.

My case is now in the post judgement phase. Robert increased my custody dramatically, helped me reach a great settlement agreement on finances and property, and was even able to win a judgment on attorney’s fees when the agreement wasn’t honored. Robert fought for me honestly and fairly. He never used any tricks, lies, or under-handed tactics. He just used truth, knowledge of the law, what was right, and incredible attention to detail the entire time.

If you’re willing to fight hard for yourself and your family, Robert and Farzad Family Law are willing to stand right by your side and do the same."

"Over the years, I sometimes found internet links to articles on Farzad Law’s website which I found extremely helpful – but I already had competent legal assistance in my corner. But nearly a decade post-divorce, I needed help for a very specific contempt action. Another one of those website articles lead me to place a call to Robert Farzad. Having left my name & number, Robert called back the next morning – after he had researched some of the prior legal issues I had been through.

There was an inherent problem that made it difficult for Robert to consider taking me on as a client (plaintiff/petitioner). But he didn’t stop to thank me for the call & hang up. Instead, Robert took the time to understand certain complexities regarding the legal problems facing me. He brainstormed with me & tried to help figure out who I could talk or consult with. My quasi-criminal issue fell between family law & criminal law expertise. Robert made 3 specific recommendations, one of which led me to a criminal prosecutor. That lead was instrumental in finding the key knowledge & talent to help me win a conviction in trial court. Nothing was guaranteed, but without finding a key person I was going to lose.

My success in court was made possible because an attorney who never met me actually cared to help. I can only imagine how that care would have been an amazing help when I was going through a difficult & contentious divorce. Robert Farzad won me over & I would absolute trust him & his associates to represent me. If the founder of a law firm cares about helping a stranger over the phone to make a difference, he is truly worthy of being the attorney to guide one through family law matters."

"I came to Farzad Family Law not knowing anything about them. I had received a recommendation from a paralegal that these people were good people. You read Yelp pages and Google reviews and you as a consumer don’t really know how things will work out for you from reviews or word of mouth. I personally don’t write reviews, but for these people you need to know. Robert and Matt and their staff are superb in their field of family law.

They are real hard working people who know the law, have excellent courtroom skills, and are respected by their peers and the bench. I personally observed this. They communicate with client and court at the highest level. They were prepared and even anticipatory of courtroom proceedings and maneuverings. When they spoke in court, Robert and Matt were erudite, excellent communicators who didn’t stutter, hem or haw. They also counseled me as to the doable — not pie-in-the-sky. If I ever need a family law attorney, I know where I will go again. They are also reasonable and to me, very personable."

FFL handled this for us very well and I highly recommend them."

I have to be honest, they make you feel important, like your case is first priority. They’re always available and able to answer any questions, you’ll never feel ignored or pushed aside…

My only regret through all this is that I did not do this sooner. So if you continue to live a life that you know is not what you want or if you’re looking for the right team to represent you in court, stop wasting any more time. Get started on a new better way of living for yourself and your kids…

Thanks for everything Robert, Matt, Yvette, Patricia everyone at Farzad Family Law."

"I had been married just under a year when it became very clear my husband and I were not meant to be together. A couple years before the marriage, I had purchased a house that had appreciated quite a bit in the year I was married. I was concerned I would have to sell my house to pay a large settlement as consequence of the appreciation…He negotiated a financial settlement that was financially fair and solidly grounded in California law.

In addition to a deep knowledge of the technicalities of California family law, Robert and his team did an excellent job with the personal side, guiding me through the difficult process of divorce. They always made sure I understood our strategy, why it was what it was and how it helped me. I am very grateful for their expert counsel and would highly recommend them to anyone in need of legal advice concerning family law."

"My separation was amicable until it wasn’t. When it came time to hire an attorney, I called several. Most were practical and dispassionate. Robert, however, was not only passionate about my case, he was mad about what my ex was trying to pull. I think he might have even been angrier than I was. I hired him the next day.

While handling my case, he maintained that fervor while deflecting and rejecting all of the nonsense my ex tried to throw at me. He was, in a word, my advocate. Eventually, my ex realized that he wasn’t going to let her get anything past me and we were able to come to an amicable settlement. I can’t recommend Robert highly enough."

"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."

I am very pleased and grateful for their services. I would truly recommend anyone that is having custody problems to use their services, they are the best family law lawyers, they truly make you feel like family and they really care for what you’re feeling and going through. Thank you so much to Farzad Family Law for helping me get my daughter back. I will forever be grateful to them."

"Divorce is never easy and a divorce with children is even more difficult. After several calls and meetings with different attorneys in Orange County, I met with Robert and Yvette. Both were extremely assertive, informative, and composed. However, the main reason I chose them to represent me, was that they were patient and compassionate. I felt comfortable explaining my situation (even though details at times were embarrassing.)

Since I took so long to decide on an attorney, when I finally met with them, I only had five days to file very important documents, which were taken care of timely and efficiently. There was not a moment that I felt that they didn’t care about my case, knowing they were working on others cases as well. The actually hearing was nerve wracking however, Robert assured me that everything turns out exactly how it should for the best interest of the children. Robert is not malicious like most lawyers, he is realistic and his advice is positive. I could not thank Robert and Yvette enough for all of their help."

When our day in court came, I felt very confident and comfortable with Robert fighting for me. At the very first preliminary hearing, Robert was able to increase my time to include overnights every other weekend even though I live in San Diego and my son lives in Orange County.

Robert was so well prepared that he knew every aspect of case inside and out. On several instances during the hearing, he even quoted multiple family law codes on the spot. This showed me the level of dedication that Robert was willing to give to my case was unparalleled. Throughout the entire process of my custody battle and divorce, Robert won on every single motion and argument that was made. He and his entire team at Farzad Family Law were so professional, courteous, and caring.

Every one of his associates was always willing to take the time to make sure that completely understood everything and that all of my questions were fully answered no matter how big or how small. I now get to see me son on a very frequent and regular basis and I play a significant role in his life. I will be eternally grateful for everything that Robert has done for my family.

It never felt like he treated me as just another client. He has a way of making it feel personal, as if you have a really good friend fighting in your corner. I will never entrust my case with anyone but Robert and his entire team at Farzad Family Law.

I highly recommend hiring him before you find yourself going against him."

"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."

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."

"When it came time to find an attorney for my divorce, Robert Farzad’s firm was one of the firms recommended to me. I had a long and detailed conversation with Robert Farzad after which I decided to meet with him and have him represent me.

During the initial phone meeting as well as the person to person meeting, Robert made his recommendation on how to proceed with my divorce. He understood my goals to have a divorce that financially protected my teenage daughter and achieved the best possible outcome for all parties while keeping costs at a reasonable level.

Robert then carefully outlined his strategy and potential outcome given what I needed accomplished. During the back and forth with the other side, I always received the best possible advice and Robert worked very hard to make sure that my daughter was well protected. The final outcome was as Robert had predicted from the very beginning and I was very pleased. I have highly recommended Robert’s firm to at least four friends and will continue to recommend them."

"When my ex girlfriend and I broke up for good, I knew that she would attempt to strip me away from my child’s life. She had decided to move across country without considering what would be the best environment to raise our child. At that moment I became desperate, I had gone to more than five different lawyers which gave me no absolute hope, they all said that since she was a single mother I had no rights, that I could try to fight but it would be a pointless, very costly battle, and would have to settle with visitation rights only.

After searching helplessly, I found Robert Farzad … Robert explained in full detail how the law in California is applied and directed for fathers seeking custody. He gave me options! Options that were not presented to me when I met previous lawyers. I knew Robert Farzad was as determined as me to fight on my behalf for my rights and for my child. He knew exactly what needed to be done, how to proceed, and what was expected throughout the custody battle. There was never a moment where I didn’t know what was going on, he always kept me informed and was very responsive. I will always be grateful to Robert, thanks to his dedication, determination, his team, and professionalism, I today enjoy having my child with me and not across country. I share custody and now have legal rights over my child’s well being."

Once I retained Robert Farzad things changed. I had a lengthy custody battle that lasted for years, but Robert and his team were there with me every step of the way, always keeping the safety of my son as the main focus. They are thorough and caring, which allowed me to be able to relax a little during an extremely complex and stressful time. Robert will fight for the needs and safety of your children.

"I came to Robert Farzad’s office after I met someone at the court house and referred me to him. I was in a nasty divorce and needed an attorney who would take my case seriously and personally. My ex is one of those wives who would say or do anything to win sole custody of the child to have more money from child support. Robert is NOT the type of attorney who likes to lose. How many attorneys would make the judge read from top to bottom before the judge makes his final decisions. Most judges turn the pages without reading. If it wasn’t for Robert I would’ve lost my custody and paying a lot money now. Taking care of my kid is my responsibility until my last breath. Losing a custody battle is not an option. As a father I would do anything for my child. I’m glad I chose Robert to represent me in court. Hopefully I won’t be back in court to fight for my child again. But I will definitely hire Robert when I need an attorney. Thanks Robert for everything you did.."

"I have hired Robert Farzad as an out of town attorney. Although he never practiced in the town where I had my case filed, Robert soon became famous in the courtroom. Soon after other attorneys in that town spoke about him with respect and even judges respected his approach and honesty. I have never met an attorney who was so sharp and intelligent.

He ALWAYS looked out for the best interest of me and my daughter. I felt so safe for myself and my daughter after I hired him. Robert Farzad is a genius. When you read his motions for the court you will see how much insight he has. It is factual and honest, right to the point. It is also like a poetry. My ex-wife accused me of everything possible there is. Robert is able to connect thing together. He worked my case from the perspective of family law, criminal law, juvenile law and also the civil law. He understood how to work with social workers, police, psychologists and even opposing lawyers and the child’s counsel were giving him compliments. When Robert Farzad speaks in the court he will direct to him all of the attention of the court. I personally sat on about 10 depositions with different people on my case and it was very, very satisfying to see how Robert decimated lies and dishonesty.

My case was very complex and Robert always found the proper strategy at the proper time. Without Robert Farzad, I would not have my wonderful daughter back.

I remember once after a hearing (and we had just about 100 hearings) when he spoke in open court, people ran after me in the hallway to ask where I found this lawyer! Who is this person, they asked! They wanted to hire him instantly, even as an out of town attorney.

His staff is super friendly and professional. It’s hard to find lawyers that have hearts anymore, but you can count on Robert Farzad. Numerous times I emailed him after midnight and literally, there was an answer within a few minutes. He discussed with me everything and we always planned together. He had never left me out of loop and always explained to me everything in simple terms. When I stepped in the courtroom with Robert, I knew that I was safe with whatever decision he took for me.

I so totally trusted him! I still have to call him time to time for advice and he always directs me in the right direction. There aren’t very many lawyers that care about you after they get their money but he does. I honestly don’t know how I would have gotten through my divorce without Robert and his hard working team! Thank you. Thank you also for my daughter and my family."

His team worked efficiently and effectively to get the job done.

I feel so blessed to have found a lawyer with a heart rather than someone just out for a paycheck. Robert keeps my interests and my daughter’s well being in mind at all times. He has helped me feel comfortable and at peace despite being in a situation I could have never imagined. While I know he has hundreds of clients, he made me feel as if I were the only one. I would highly recommend this law firm for any family law matter. Thank you, Robert, for all that you have done. You are a wonderful lawyer and person! Thank you, thank you, thank you!"

"I am an attorney with 23 years of daily litigation experience. I first met Robert as my opposing counsel in a family law case and later handled a second matter through trial against Robert. I found Robert to be extremely knowledgeable and professional. Despite the unfortunate aspects of the litigation process, Robert always kept an eye on an effective balance between aggressive advocacy and resolution.

When my wife sued me for divorce, I chose Robert to represent me. As in most all divorce cases, my entire life including all of my property and my children were at stake. Although I know many family law attorneys, I chose Robert as my advocate. My expectations were realized and Robert was incredibly dedicated and a talented strategic thinker. Throughout the entire case Robert was literally 5 steps ahead of my wife’s attorney.

Although Robert is not the cheapest attorney in town he was straightforward throughout the entire process and was well worth the fees he charged. I fully recognized that the issues dealt with in my divorce case will have long lasting effects years after the judgment is entered. I wholeheartedly recommend Robert as an excellent top notch family law attorney."

"I highly recommend Robert Farzad. He is well versed on divorce, child custody and family law. He is accountable and expects the same from you. I met Robert Farzad through a friend’s attorney who Robert was up against him. My friend’s attorney, she said ‘Robert Farzad is cleaning my clock in my case against with him’. My friend’s attorney called Robert Farzad personally and explained what she knew about my case and what was happening. Robert Farzad had already been online reviewing my case pleadings.

Robert Farzad gave me his cell phone number letting me know if I needed anything I could call him. He even met with me on a Saturday to make it easy on my work schedule. I interviewed other lawyers and they provided no shred of hope that they could help me. Robert Farzad was confident he could help me. The other lawyers charged me a consultation fee and then offered me no hope or plan to resolve my divorce. Robert Farzad thoughtfully considered my options and explained everything to me thoroughly. That alone was worth the consultation. I felt so well at ease when I hired him. He made specific commitments to me about what we would do and how we would do it. He set priorities to first stop my abusive husband to terrorize me and my children.

He then moved on to deal with the issues: a false claim against me of Domestic Violence against me, a spouse who refused to follow any court orders basically acting above the law, a spouse who was stalling the divorce process both refusing to settle the smallest of matters and a spouse who at the same time denying me access to our money to pay for representation.

Robert insists on total honesty. He interviews you as a perspective client as well as you interviewing him. He behaves in a totally ethical manner and insists that you behave the same.

Robert Farzad creates a well thought out plan for your divorce case. He handles himself professionally at all times. He arrives at court early and is so well prepared. I have had time to compare him to prior attorneys and to his peers and there is no comparison. Most attorneys arrive at court with hand written notes on legal pads while Robert arrives at court well prepared with case files and typed up talking points with bold and highlighted emphasis. When you see him against the other attorneys, it is easy to see why he does well in court. He is very well prepared and has thought out the whole chain of options that might occur.

My prior attorney would arrive just as the court was opening giving us no time to discuss the case. This created undue stress on me. She also had no way of communicating electronically so I felt she never had the full picture of the case. I felt I never had any access to her as she handled all business through her paralegals. Now, when I arrive at court, I am calm because Robert is there and explains things so thoroughly. He remains in contact and plans out each step of the divorce with you. Robert will advise you of the cost and weighs the cost versus the benefit of going to court. When you arrive at court he explains what will happen in court and what he expects of you. He reminds me of the cost of going to court versus holding matters until the next court date. How many lawyers will tell you that some items will cost you more to go to court than that item is worth? How many lawyers will make you think about net cost of the award? He looks at the big picture.

Robert Farzad helped me prove the abuse charges filed against me were false. He won some amazing awards for me. Whether you need him for a divorce or child custody, you will be in great hands with Robert. He tries consistently to settle matters outside of court. I have been with Robert Farzad for a year now under difficult circumstances. Robert has complete integrity and you do also. I respect Robert Farzad, his office staff and attorneys. I have had the best representation in Orange County!'

I found this approach to be quite unique and it ensured I reached a highly satisfactory judgment. I highly recommend working with them.'

"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, they 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."

"The firm represented me in my divorce case. Their professionalism set me at ease by carefully explaining all my options and courses of actions I could realistically take. Their prompt service in quickly answering my questions and taking action gave me a confident feeling that my case was important to them and their staff. In the end, I was very pleased with the fair, balanced and thorough degree that I am now able to work a flexible schedule out with my former spouse. I especially am thankful to them for taking the time to explain to my current wife the detailed legalities of the process and our options."

"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 this law firm. 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 them, without reservation and have done so to family, and friends. My parting words to “Matt” I feel as if I’m losing a friend, I can’t thank you enough for all you have done."

"I want to off by saying after being divorced in 1994 and paying 18 years of child support you would think your legal obligations would be done. That was not the case for me. I received papers from my ex wife looking for some outrageous amount of back child support. I was not sure what do at that point so I went hunting attorneys over the internet. I was very nervous to call an attorney but their team was very helpful and understanding from the start. They got me in touch with Matt Sundly who actually took the time to listen and understand my situation before talking about money. My wife and I set an appointment and met directly with Matt to discuss the whole case. They are very upfront about everything and no hidden fees or costs. I knew where I stood thru the whole process. when we finally got to court they settled the case for me with an outcome that benefits my daughter which is the most important thing. I would recommend them to anybody that needs a divorce attorney. I wish I had them when I first got divorced."

"Matt Sundly is currently representing me in my custody case of my 1 year old son. I have been a client for well over one year and everything I have seen thus far from this law firm has been great. My son’s father left the country for a year but is seeking 50% physical custody upon his return and we will be in court within a week or two of his return. Matt has always responded to my concerns with expert advice and have successfully handled my son’s attorney with precision. They have never wavered from being reasonable and fair. Representation by such a strong law firm has given me the peace of mind that I have needed throughout this stressful experience. They have kept my best interests in mind and I am very confident that we will get the results that are in the best interest of my son."

"They 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 their 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."

Matt represented me in a “move away” custody situation with a very contentious ex-spouse. Matt was a strong representative who clearly cared about the outcome of my case. He fought for me, was strategic and tactful in dealing with the other attorney and clearly knows the court system well. I was impressed with his knowledge of my case because I had experienced previous attorneys reading my case as they walked into the court room. Matt thinks ahead and contemplates how decisions made today will affect tomorrow. I would not hesitate to use Matt in the future. I only wish Matt had been my attorney during my initial divorce. He did a great job!!

"I had the pleasure of being represented by Mathew and supported by Ashley out the Mission Viejo office. Don’t kid yourself, this is a full service firm with multiple locations and I had regular interactions with Robert, Yvette, etc. They bring all their resources, knowledge and relationships to represent their clients and choosing a firm to fight for your family is one of the most important decisions I’ve ever made. I’m a lawyer myself and don’t throw away money but when you’re in the fight of your life, responding to false allegations, protecting a long standing career/reputation, and fighting for future time with your children, YOU CAN’T AFFORD to cut corners to save a dime or two.

It was the toughest time of my life and they are compassionate, understanding, and will focus you on what you can control and impact to get a better result. You will get through this process but having Farzad Family Law on your side will make it easier and lead to a better result. Can’t say enough about the firm, their staff and the work they do. Don’t tell them but I would have paid more for the outcome. Stay strong and true to yourself and you and your family will be fine."

"I had case with my ex wife who I divorced 15 years ago. She wanted a low six figure reimbursement from me, though she is insanely rich and ...

"I had case with my ex wife who I divorced 15 years ago. She wanted a low six figure reimbursement from me, though she is insanely rich and I am not, 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. The past attorneys in my divorce case were high profile and very expensive. Unfortunately, some were ill prepared, did not communicate or return calls and did not work hard on the case. They would show up and wing it, after I paid them the price of a decent BMW.

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, so I called an appeals attorney, one of the most respected in his field, who then recommended me to Robert Farzad. The appeals guy said this was not appeal time, what I needed was a smart lawyer to win this.

I met Robert. He explained to me how we would present the case. 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 Robert Farzad 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. He is not cheap but you get your money’s worth, as I did. Also his staff are great, all of whom respond quickly and are very kind professional people. He is exactly the type of lawyer you want on your side and you never want to go up against. Robert Farzad and the firm are top notch family law litigators."
