I was referred to Mr. Sarieh by one of his former clients when I had realized how poor my representation was with my first attorney. My case was complicated and involved two Interspousal Transfer Grant Deeds for my separate property that my ex was contesting. Whereas my first attorney told me simply that the property issues were complicated, would make my case difficult, and encouraged me to settle, Mr. Sarieh was able to explain case law (that he was involved in no less) that supported my case and assured me that he could successfully take on my case. He did just that and more. Through several court delays and circumstances created by the pandemic, Mr. Sarieh remained steadfast in working on my case. His selection of forensic accountant, Greg Raffaele from CROSSCOR Valuations & Forensics Inc., was exactly what was needed to prove my case in court. The court agreed that all of the documentation we had supported my separate property as being just that. The court also agreed with our vocational evaluation and imputed an appropriate income on my ex-husband who had been hiding his income in order to collect an exorbitant amount of spousal and child support from me. I am more than ecstatic with the outcome. Through Mr. Sarieh's skills, the court ordered reimbursement for overpayment of spousal support retroactive to last March. Mr. Sarieh has my utmost respect as an attorney and I would highly recommend him to anyone going through a contentious divorce. He takes pride in what he does, which is obvious in his demeanor in court and in the work he produces. I have no regrets about choosing Mr. Sarieh for my legal representation.

We retained Wail Sarieh to help us out with what had been a contentious, incredibly confusing, and emotionally draining two-year long divorce process for my elderly father. Our situation was unique in that our father and his wife both suffered from dementia and were not active participants in the process. We had been working with another attorney for almost two years but there had not been any movement in our father’s case for a long period of time. Negotiations had stalled because there was a lack of communication from the other side, and both sides were struggling to divide properties and assets accumulated during and before their marriage. We needed to find an attorney that could pick up the pieces and get the ball moving in this divorce case so our father could enjoy his remaining years. We found that and more in Wail and his staff. Wail was invaluable in helping us get to a very fair settlement in very little time. Wail is incredibly intelligent, professional, driven, and tough when the situation calls for it. He is well-versed in the law and familiar with the judges, attorneys, and courts in the Southern CA area. You cannot help but think you are in good hands with Wail as he exudes confidence, and this allowed us to relax a little for the first time in months. During our first meeting with Wail, he was able to tell us things about our case and showed us invaluable documents that our other attorney had not presented in the two previous years. I wish we would have started working with Wail from day one as we would have saved a lot of time, money, and frustration. Also, I do not think you could find a better advocate for your cause then Wail. He is truly that good. I cannot recommend Wail Sarieh and his staff enough.

Wail is an excellent family law attorney. He is very well-versed in the law and is great in the courtroom. He gives all of his clients the utmost attention and makes them feel comfortable from day one. Wail’s years of experience and assertive demeanor make him the perfect choice for a divorce attorney.

Not very helpful.

Choosing to hire attorney Wail Sarieh was, without a doubt, one of the best decisions I have ever made. Prior to hiring him, I was in court for almost two years and had been denied multiple times the right to terminate my ex mother in laws visition with my children. Even with my children therapist testafing on how awful my ex mother in law treated my children the judge was not using the law to rule but his own personal opinion. He immediately went to work and strategized a plan that would put my case back on the right track. Wail dug deep and review every court hearing I had with my previous attorney who was ineffective and inexperienced in family law, Wail was able to pin pointing every mistake the courts had made by violating my constitution right as a parent. Wail put pressure on the court to terminate the court order right away and the judge apologized to us for overlooking the therapists testemony and violating my rights. Wail was the person I had been searching for after previous attorney turn my case down, Wail represent me and my family during this extremely stressful time. I highly recommend him!!!

My Daughter had a difficult case involving guardianship and many other very very involved factors. She would call different attorneys and they either did not want to take her case or it was not something they practiced. I called Attorney Schwarz -after a Google search -and he seemed to know exactly what to do and was extremely knowledgeable. He was retained by my daughter. Today my daughter had her court case and had to wait for her case to be called - her case was called last. She advised me that she had watched case after case -with cases similar to her case—get rejected by the judge -her case was then called and everything she requested was approved by the Judge! She was shocked- first time going to court and awarded everything she asked for! Attorney Schwarz is so outstanding! He won this case! Many attorneys you call and you deal with the secretary —my daughter loved how she could call Attorney Schwarz-and he would answer the phone!

I called to set up an Appointment for some Family Law problem we were going through. I didn't even finish talking, he badly cut me off and supposed what i was saying or needing, so he RUDELY & ARROGANTLY with his annoying Voice said * I don't do free calls or any free consultations, No pay No help. When i was about to say i wanted an appointment to maybe see if we can get a case and no one said we weren't paying. How are customers going to speak to you regarding their issues, cus we cant talk or you want to take advantage and start charging non-sense. These are the Lawyers u want to AVOID!! Pls look else where. I am posting his AD & BAD Review in Orange County Teacher Bulletins & Family Bulletins, so they stay away.

David Shwarz handled my guardianship case with professionalism and always answered my questions in a timely matter. Very personable and a good lawyer for anyone who is looking for a no nonsense client/lawyer experience. Reasonable pricing, and I would recommend him to anyone.

I was looking for a prenuptial lawyer and came across David's name via google search. David answered my phone call promptly and we set a meeting up for an initial consultation. David was down to earth and was very easy to talk to. He and his wife worked together to draft the prenup agreement, and they gave me and my fiance several questions to answer in terms of assets, finances, etc. It was pretty straight forward and not confusing at all. He even referred my fiance to another prenup lawyer to represent him. He and his wife kept consistent contact with us when it came to finalizing our paperwork.

Never thought I would be writing my own personal experience about divorce. David Schwarz has taken very good care of me and my case. He and his staff has gone above and beyond to make the process much less stressful. Although the case is in process, David and Wini have given me a senses of calm during this difficult time. I have every bit of confidence that he will continue to positively represent me and my best interest. Thank you always David and Wini, I am forever grateful for all that you have done.

"Sincere, Honest, Trustworthy, Compassionate are just some of the words I would use to describe Ms. Bokhari. She is truly a gem of a person. She took a very difficult case on my behalf and turned into something that was very amicable. She fought tooth and nail with the opposing counsel in safeguarding my interests, providing me with the best of counsel that I needed to ensure I was protected. What sets her apart with other members of her profession is the pure love for the profession and being available. She responded to my questions and concerns quickly and efficiently. She kept going full throttle until the satisfying result was reached, in my best interest. I would highly recommend you call her before calling anyone else if you are going through a divorce."

I’ve been working with Raazia on my case for years. Although my divorce was resolved, unfortunately I had to return because of new issues. I could always rely on her to give me professional sound direction in times when it seemed my case was impossible. The worst parts were having patience through difficulty. I have trusted Raazia and her team to help me when I felt that I had lost hope but she encouraged me to stay strong and in the end it was worth the struggle. If I ever have issues come up again I would call her again in a heartbeat.

We went to her office to get help applying for citizenship. From the beginning she was very kind, caring and detailed oriented. She made sure that the process goes smooth. Highly recommend her. I would give her 10 star if it was possible.

Excellent

The Law Offices of Raazia Bokhari provided impeccable and professional service for my child support case. Her team was extremely courteous, resourceful, and dependable. I am very unfamiliar with anything that has to do with the law and the intricacies of the system, yet they made me feel comfortable and at ease when I disclosed personal information with them. Bottom line, they provided the results I needed and I am very grateful. I highly recommend them to members of my family and to fellow readers.

I retained Pinkham and Associates Family Law Firm to represent me in a very difficult child custody and visitation case. Mr. Pinkham and his legal team are passionate about parents rights and were dedicated to my case from the initial consultation and through today. This family law firm will be there for you to get you through to the other side with yours and your child or children's best interest in mind. Mr Pinkham and his top notch Paralegal- Liby, were always and I mean always attentive and responsive to my many questions. Mr. Pinkham offered sound and direct legal counsel during some of the scary moments I experienced throughout this past year. Should you find yourself in need of Family Law counsel, do yourself a favor and retain Pinkham and Associates to represent you.

Definitely pleased with Pinkham and associates... Dough Steve Libby and Bill are an AWESOME team!!! They were very helpful throughout the whole process and made me feel like I was in good hands... I Highly recommend them to EVERYONE they WILL FIGHT for you... Best decision I made!!! They’re the BEST in the business in my opinion...

More of an administrator than a lawyer. Did NOT fight for me and instead they gave in to all my ex’s demands. Constantly had to email them for updates as they do not communicate. The lawyer who rep'd me in court misprounded my name, told me he thought my ex was hot, and was eventually fired. Doug reimbursed me for about 30% of the total bill, but I still got hosed. Be warned.

I was impressed with the promptness and professionalism with which my case was handled. Thank you very much for all your help!

Doug Pinkham helped me through a difficult divorce. I can highly recommend both Mr. Pinkham and his wonderful staff.

Maxine is responsive, trustworthy, knowledeable, upfront, and gets the work done, unlike the other 3 attorneys I hired prior to her.

Having dealt with several family law attorneys over the years with a complex paternity matter, Maxine was by far the best. I wish I would have hired her sooner! She is a very efficient and direct communicator and will protect your rights as a father to ensure your child support is fair and and in the best interest of your child. She is extremely organized, compassionate, and professional - you will notice a difference on your very first call. Don't try to take on the family legal system by yourself - Maxine will take care of you!

I am so grateful to have had a lawyer like Maxine representing me during my divorce. I couldn't have asked for a better attorney and would definitely recommend her to anybody. She is the best at what she does. Thank you, Maxine!!

Maxine is very thorough, and when my divorce proved to be a challenge she was determined to help me finalize it. She answered all questions I had in a timely manner and did her best to help me understand what was going on and what needed to be done. Thank you, Maxine.

I hired Maxine to help me with my divorce, which can be a very emotional process. Maxine was patient and understanding with me as she helped guide me through what would have been a very confusing process. She was reliable, trustworthy, had a quick response time, and truly fought to protect my future. After interviewing several attorneys, when I met Maxine, I knew she was the right attorney for me. She made me feel comfortable, was conscious of my budget, and I felt like she really cared about the outcome of my case. Thank you again for all your help, Maxine. I wouldn't have been able to make it through such a difficult time without your guidance and support.

Dependable, Trustworthy, Aggressive, Professional!!! My husband and I were in need of a more dependable lawyer for a custody/visitation battle for our son. Our originally hired lawyer was impossible to get in touch with, wouldn't return emails or voicemails for days, cancelled meetings with us and provided a paralegal instead, and showed up only five minutes before our ex parte child custody hearing when we were understandably nervous and stressed. Our experience with Tracey has been the exact opposite. During the initial consultation she immediately put us at ease and gained our confidence. She obtained all possible information from us in regards to the case and reviewed all of the documentation from our previous hearing and resulting stipulation. In less than a week she accomplished more, provided us with additional options and strategies, and made us feel better prepared for such an important and life-altering hearing as the custody and visitation with our son than our previous lawyer did in two months. She punctually arrived at court the day of the hearing dressed professionally and met us in the parking lot to brief us and accompany us in to the courthouse. This went a long way towards calming our nerves and giving us the confidence to face the opposing counsel. She situated us comfortably and then checked in with the bailiff for us. She then chauffeured us in to the gallery ahead of everyone else that was checking in affording us the time to regroup and center before our case was called. She kept us well informed throughout the day and met with opposing counsel to negotiate possibly the best visitation, custody, and move away orders achievable. We are beyond thrilled with the outcome of the hearing and now have additional time with our son that is firm and precise down to the day and hour leaving nothing open to misinterpretation. Tracey even procured for us additional visitation and technological (Skype, Facetime etc.) communication orders so that we can be confident that when we move out of state (active duty military family that is transferring across the country) my husband, myself, and our son and daughters will have solid, ongoing communication with their brother that is so important for siblings and was not previously being accomplished due to parental alienation issues. Tracey was an absolute godsend and followed up with us after the hearing to make sure we were satisfied with the services she provided. Custody and visitation matters are highly stressful and full of emotion. Being an active duty military family we felt at a severe disadvantage in the family law system since most of our family, friends, and support base live in an entirely different state. It is a forlorn experience to show up at court with just your husband when our son's mother had an entire entourage to display. With Tracey, we felt like we finally had someone on our side to be our voice and fight for our rights and our sons right to have a relationship with his father, myself, and his siblings. I would recommend her to anyone going through the heartbreaking and earth shattering struggle of a visitation and custody battle or fighting to be in the life of their child. She was unparalleled in her professionalism, aggressive in fighting for our rights, and compassionate and empathetic to our situation. We will forever be grateful to her and are so fortunate to have had her represent us.

    Dependable, Trustworthy, Aggressive, Professional!!! My husband and I were in need of a more dependable lawyer for a custody/visitation battle for our son. Our originally hired lawyer was impossible to get in touch with, wouldn't return emails or voicemails for days, cancelled meetings with us and provided a paralegal instead, and showed up only five minutes before our ex parte child custody hearing when we were understandably nervous and stressed. Our experience with Tracey has been the exact opposite. During the initial consultation she immediately put us at ease and gained our confidence. She obtained all possible information from us in regards to the case and reviewed all of the documentation from our previous hearing and resulting stipulation. In less than a week she accomplished more, provided us with additional options and strategies, and made us feel better prepared for such an important and life-altering hearing as the custody and visitation with our son than our previous lawyer did in two months. She punctually arrived at court the day of the hearing dressed professionally and met us in the parking lot to brief us and accompany us in to the courthouse.

Over the last 7 years I have had the pleasure of working with Cottle Keen Lopiccolo & Heyde. I have worked closely with Dana and Julie on many different matters. The reason I keep engaging with this law firm is because they are well informed about business matters, they respond quickly to my inquiries, and are a great resource when it comes to my business. They also have a group of trusted referrals who practice different types of law and other vendors that they generously share with me when needed.

I've worked at this office for 8 months as a Legal Assistant and had an amazing experience! The attorneys at this firm are passionate about their careers and care about all their clients. I have learned so much from them and couldn't recommend them enough!

Julie was fantastic. I couldn't be happier with my end results. I highly recommend this law firm. They're very professional and they do what they say they're going to do.

While being a defendant is never welcome, Dana made the experience as comfortable as I think it could have been. She was knowledgeable about the law, paid excellent attention to my needs, and was open and responsive with communication.

Hired these 2 for a family trust lawsuit for my deceased grandfather and they came to arbitration and mediation negotiations very unprepared and ultimately led to my family losing the case. My family and I spent tens of thousands of dollars on Dana and Julie for a very disappointing effort by them. I would not recommend them.

After months of trying to find the right legal counsel that I could trust, I was graciously referred to Sean Yanez by a dear friend who highly recommended him and his firm. As a true skeptical person, I was a little apprehensive to speak with yet another "fast talking" attorney who wanted me to pay upfront for a consultation that may or may not answer my legal concerns, but to my pleasant surprise I found that Sean Yanez was the real deal with a heart. He not only gave me extremely valuable advice through his free consultation, but took the time to follow up right away with strategies I could apply to my legal matter right away. Also, instead of upselling me on his legal services, he was honest and straight-forward with giving me his recommendation without trying to take my money. He took the time to learn about my case before speaking with me and never had me repeat any information I already shared with his firm, he spoke to me with compassion and interest in my legal matter, and was extremely helpful at a time when all I had been used to was the exact opposite. Off the bat, Sean was sincere and full of knowledge that he shared openly without coming across as condescending or forceful. He was a breath of fresh air to speak with and I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone who needs an attorney that they can trust. I would have never found Sean through reviews due to my past experiences, but I'm so glad that he was recommended to me by a friend. Please believe me when I say that you can trust Sean and his firm to handle your family law matters. They are timely, knowledgeable, trustworthy, and most importantly they treat people with compassion, dignity and respect without overcharging and under delivering --qualities that can be so difficult to find in attorneys. You will not be disappointed.

A little of our story, My Husband and I hired on Mr Yanez & Associates to help us with a move away case from CA to CO for my step son who had primarily lived with us since he was 5 yrs old (he’s 11 now). His birth mother believed that with us moving away she should now have her turn in raising him and attempted to change the custody agreement. We were worried we’d lose the case and our son would have to stay behind and not be able to continue to grow up with his brothers since “courts tend to sway with the biological mothers” or so they say. My husband and I were fortunate enough to have had met with Sean in person a few years prior and were able to get a feel for how we’d hope he’d handle our case. And thankfully we were right. Even with all the Covid 19 obstacles he did not falter. We wanted someone who would listen to our concerns, someone who would answer our questions (and trust me we had a lot!) but not just with what we wanted to hear but with facts, with honesty and sincerity even if it wasn’t the answer we wanted. We wanted someone who knew the ins and outs of the court system and how it all worked and would give us their honest opinion. He was always was a step and ahead and very strategic. He gave us play by play and being in a situation where the end result could possibly be loosing your child, having someone like Sean who was literally there fighting with us made all the difference. Mr Yanez & Associates were always extremely timely with getting back to us quickly, we never felt out of the loop, we never felt as if we were in limbo waiting on responses or answers or what our next step should be. Their professionalism and knowledge in my opinion is bar none. The end result is we now live in CO with my stepson, and thanks to Mr. Yanez & Associates, my husband and I can continue to watch our boys grow up together. If you’re looking for an attorney for your case. Look no further!! Sincerely, a Wife & Boy Mom of 3

Absolutely remarkable family attorneys. Yanez and his team are extremely knowledgeable and give great advice. They know family law! I spent days seeking family law firms before making a decision. This firm was able to help me. Thanks to Mr. Yanez, I'll be able to be spend more time with my son again. If you're looking for a family law attorney for Irvine or the general Orange County area who cares, who's reasonably priced and knows what he's doing, this law firm without a doubt is a must consult with. I highly recommend them.

Our encounter with attorney Bettina was incredible. She walked us through the divorce process and allowed us to better understand the complexity of going through a divorce. I can honestly say that Mrs. Yanez and her Associates helped release my stress and allowed me to be able to sleep comfortably without worrying, she was phenomenal. Thank you again. I will recommend you and your team to my family and friends.

She is the worst Attorney ever. I do not have much money at the time so I rely on the court to assign me, then I got her for my custody case. She listen to my ex who also used to be a attorney at law. Then they all pull my daughter away from me even though I am the only raise my daughter up without any child support. At that time, my daughter was 8, now she is 15 and want to commit a suicide

The Law Offices of Dorie Rogers were all wonderful, friendly, compassionate and knowledgeable professionals. We found Dorie and her amazing team after having dealt with an extremely difficult situation for over a year and a half. Ms Rogers was able to quickly execute an effective strategy following the law and taking the best interest of the child into account. We would highly recommend her and her team of professionals.

From the moment I met Dorie in consultation, to the final completion of my divorce, I knew I had someone who absolutely understood my situation and had the experience and confidence to help me during a process that was totally unfamiliar to me. Dorie and Lisa as a team were the best combination of talents that anyone could ever find. Both ladies were professional, knowledgeable and efficient during every step of the entire process, no matter how small or large the task at hand. I was always treated with respect and kindness, and at the same time knew both ladies would do whatever was needed to ensure a fair settlement in a process that can often go awry. The resources of help these ladies have access to is expansive, and we used outside expertise as needed. This is the most trustworthy, respectable, efficient and understanding team including all administrative staff, and to be met every time with a smile was the added bonus you cannot pay for. Any financial investment in a solid team like this is worth more than words, it is truly peace of mind.

Dorie is an amazing lawyer and a great person. She truly cares about her clients and is the lawyer you want in your corner in difficult times.

Dorie Rogers was referred to us in a very interesting way: A friend did not actually refer her own attorney, but instead, she referred Dorie, who represented her ex-husband! We are very grateful for Dorie and her team. Angela was always an email or phone call away and kept us very organized. Lisa was the attorney assigned to my mother's case. She was wonderful! We felt very confident throughout the entire process that Lisa knew exactly how to handle every situation. Before Lisa, communication was not very good with the opposing side. There was a lot of tension and disagreements. Lisa was able to work extremely well with all the personalities and ultimately lead the group by creating a firm & fair environment - resulting to productive negotiations. We appreciated Lisa and Angela for always considering our costs and recommending fee-conscious solutions for the best return. I closely supported my mom through the entire process & we were so glad to have such a strong team on our side.

Dorie A. Rogers has an amazing team, which includes attorney Lisa McCall, Carol, Angela, Theresa, and many more. My attorney, Lisa McCall, was meticulous to detail and extremely organized. Everyone was knowledgeable to the status of my case, and I was always kept up to date. They were prompt in returning my phone calls and emails. I truly appreciate Dorie and Lisa's professional guidance throughout this whole process.

Simon helped me so much with my restraining order. I felt confident that him and his team would take care of proofing all of my paperwork and submitting all of the necessary documents. We only had a week before my court hearing and the team worked closely with me to figure out everything I needed and clearly and effectively organize a timeline of all of the events that had accrued throughout my case. So much weight was taken off of my shoulders and Simon saved me time, heartache, and money with his solution to my problem. Thank you so much!

Simon was amazing..... He listens and he genuinely cares. As you know, the client is the one who cares more about their family law issue than anyone else.... with Simon, I truly felt he cared about my family law issue as much as me. After he listened to me, I mean REALLY listened, which was his natural way of being, he was able to guide me, strategize and execute in such an expert, thoughtful and very effective way. It literally but my nerves at rest. I felt empowered from a life long struggle I always felt defeated by. I can't tell you how grateful I am.. I highly recommend him.. He should be one of the top attorneys you consider and interview. You will decide who is best for you.. And Simon probably is the one.

SIMON is AMAZING! He is a fearless, confident, award-winning attorney who has over 10 years of experience and it shows. SIMON is like Batman. He wears a suit and fights crime. I could not have won my RO case without him. I was hoping to get at least the minimum amount of years but SIMON made it possible to get the max! He knew my case inside and out. Even when the judge would throw him curveballs, he would knock it out of the park. I was very impressed with his outstanding professionalism and honesty about the entire process. SIMON gave me the strength I needed to finally stand up for myself and get my life back. I highly recommend Core Law Group. I could really feel that his whole team cared about me and my safety. Worth every penny!

Simon is a perfect textbook lawyer minus the family (human element), a trait very much required for family law cases. In case you want to just win momentarily at any cost and want to have a sense of gratification that u destroyed your ex in a family law case, he is the lawyer to be. Remember though, u will repent later for the bridge this law firm will build between you two. He is a lawyer known for making divorce nasty. I say this through 2 experiences which makes me write about this law firm, one a family member and another a female colleague. This law firm worked exactly the same in both cases. So here is the modulus operandi. The trap- Especially applicable for women's, when u approach this law firm, you will find everyone is so supportive to your situation and even u tell them u also made a mistake u will be brain-washed in believing that u were actually abused and he needs to pay for it and if u dont do that than he can do this or that.... U will be made to believe that u experienced the worst abuse of all time and this law firm will make sure to get u the most out of divorce at any cost. At the end, u will realize they did nothing but took double of your money than other lawyers and u gained nothing but your vindictive approach towards ur ex made u lose in longer run. That day of intake was a bait and the complimentary consultation provided was a hook. The modulus operandi- U will be made to believe that they are giving u discount where in their itemized bill you will find they did not charge u for a phone call, email or inside consultations with other lawyers. By seeing so many waivers u will feel obliged however u will never realize that the total paid after everything is over will be atleast twice or thrice of what a nominal family law case would have otherwise costed. They will drag you in making unnecessary discovery extracting thrice the fees what they pay to their paralegal.. and what you would have paid outside. Discovery will expose urs and ur ex net worth so that this law firm can see how much you can be milked. Unless you realize that your case is mostly handled by junior lawyers who are guided by one and only Simon. Since there are many lawyers to be paid, u atleast pay twice or thrice than a decent attorney office of one or two. Once they see there is nothing left to be milked, they will try to seek a settlement to be over by your case sooner. No stones unturned- The law firm will fight for you tooth and nail making lies the truth and truth the lies. You will be groomed on what to say to Judge and what the lawyer will ask you before the judge and what you should answer for that. After the stage is all set, you will be confident about your win without caring for truth you are hiding and lies you are saying. To pressurize your ex, the law firm will make subpoenas left and right, request documentation, ask the nastiest questions and file unnecessary paperwork in court which will do nothing in your favor but delay the judgement due to chaos. Finally- Ur bills will be running double than your ex, and divorce will still be years apart. You will only realize 5 yrs later that you got blinded into a unscrupulous money hungry law firm. The verdict - If you dont have kids & the intent is to make a divorce or any family law matter highly conflicting, this is the law firm for u else please avoid at any cost and find a family law lawyer who understands the dynamics of family.

I needed a lawyer for professional services, so I reached out to Simon and Core Law Group. Wow, I could not be happier with my decision! Everyone on the team is friendly and professional, and every question I had was answered promptly. What sets Simon apart from other attorneys is how caring he is. You're not just getting legal services, but he also legitimately treats you like a friend. I have no doubt that the courtesy and great service I got from Simon is the same he provides to his closest friends and family. Trust me, that's not an exaggeration. If I need something, I can shoot him a text, and have a response within minutes. There's a reason all of his clients love him! Simon goes above and beyond to work for you. Next time I need any sort of legal services, I am reaching out to the Core Law Group team immediately!

    Simon helped me so much with my restraining order. I felt confident that him and his team would take care of proofing all of my paperwork and submitting all of the necessary documents. We only had a week before my court hearing and the team worked closely with me to figure out everything I needed and clearly and effectively organize a timeline of all of the events that had accrued throughout my case. So much weight was taken off of my shoulders and Simon saved me time, heartache, and money with his solution to my problem. Thank you so much!

    Simon was amazing..... He listens and he genuinely cares. As you know, the client is the one who cares more about their family law issue than anyone else.... with Simon, I truly felt he cared about my family law issue as much as me. After he listened to me, I mean REALLY listened, which was his natural way of being, he was able to guide me, strategize and execute in such an expert, thoughtful and very effective way. It literally but my nerves at rest. I felt empowered from a life long struggle I always felt defeated by. I can't tell you how grateful I am.. I highly recommend him.. He should be one of the top attorneys you consider and interview. You will decide who is best for you.. And Simon probably is the one.

    SIMON is AMAZING! He is a fearless, confident, award-winning attorney who has over 10 years of experience and it shows. SIMON is like Batman. He wears a suit and fights crime. I could not have won my RO case without him. I was hoping to get at least the minimum amount of years but SIMON made it possible to get the max! He knew my case inside and out. Even when the judge would throw him curveballs, he would knock it out of the park. I was very impressed with his outstanding professionalism and honesty about the entire process. SIMON gave me the strength I needed to finally stand up for myself and get my life back. I highly recommend Core Law Group. I could really feel that his whole team cared about me and my safety. Worth every penny!

    Simon is a perfect textbook lawyer minus the family (human element), a trait very much required for family law cases. In case you want to just win momentarily at any cost and want to have a sense of gratification that u destroyed your ex in a family law case, he is the lawyer to be. Remember though, u will repent later for the bridge this law firm will build between you two. He is a lawyer known for making divorce nasty. I say this through 2 experiences which makes me write about this law firm, one a family member and another a female colleague. This law firm worked exactly the same in both cases. So here is the modulus operandi. The trap- Especially applicable for women's, when u approach this law firm, you will find everyone is so supportive to your situation and even u tell them u also made a mistake u will be brain-washed in believing that u were actually abused and he needs to pay for it and if u dont do that than he can do this or that.... U will be made to believe that u experienced the worst abuse of all time and this law firm will make sure to get u the most out of divorce at any cost. At the end, u will realize they did nothing but took double of your money than other lawyers and u gained nothing but your vindictive approach towards ur ex made u lose in longer run. That day of intake was a bait and the complimentary consultation provided was a hook. The modulus operandi- U will be made to believe that they are giving u discount where in their itemized bill you will find they did not charge u for a phone call, email or inside consultations with other lawyers. By seeing so many waivers u will feel obliged however u will never realize that the total paid after everything is over will be atleast twice or thrice of what a nominal family law case would have otherwise costed. They will drag you in making unnecessary discovery extracting thrice the fees what they pay to their paralegal.. and what you would have paid outside. Discovery will expose urs and ur ex net worth so that this law firm can see how much you can be milked. Unless you realize that your case is mostly handled by junior lawyers who are guided by one and only Simon. Since there are many lawyers to be paid, u atleast pay twice or thrice than a decent attorney office of one or two. Once they see there is nothing left to be milked, they will try to seek a settlement to be over by your case sooner. No stones unturned- The law firm will fight for you tooth and nail making lies the truth and truth the lies. You will be groomed on what to say to Judge and what the lawyer will ask you before the judge and what you should answer for that. After the stage is all set, you will be confident about your win without caring for truth you are hiding and lies you are saying. To pressurize your ex, the law firm will make subpoenas left and right, request documentation, ask the nastiest questions and file unnecessary paperwork in court which will do nothing in your favor but delay the judgement due to chaos. Finally- Ur bills will be running double than your ex, and divorce will still be years apart. You will only realize 5 yrs later that you got blinded into a unscrupulous money hungry law firm. The verdict - If you dont have kids & the intent is to make a divorce or any family law matter highly conflicting, this is the law firm for u else please avoid at any cost and find a family law lawyer who understands the dynamics of family.
