5.0 stars 14 totalReview Sogand Zamani
I had a great experience working with Alisa and Sogand. I knew that I was in great hands for my custody case from the first meeting: they were quick to get the facts, very knowledgeable about the law, experienced in DC courts and thoughtful in their strategy. They worked at my pace: always available but allowing me to reflect when I needed more time. They were supportive from beginning to end and helped me get through the most difficult time in my life. I highly recommend Zamani & Associates.

Sogand took over our case midstream after we had spent close to a quarter of a million dollars in attorney fees with another firm in a very heated custody case. We had gotten nowhere fast with our previous attorney and had spent a lot of money so we decided we needed a BIG change. After researching thoroughly and seeking recommendations we decided to go with Ms. Zamani's firm because of strong recommendations (many of them from the DC court house "grapevine") and their reputation for being fiercely protective of their clients, putting the needs of the child first and aggressively fighting for the best interests of the child. Our case is far from over, however, from every praecipe, motion and status hearing update, we feel we have been extremely well represented and our family has been protected. Family Court is an ugly place with all kinds of twists and turns that can leave you reeling with fear of the unkown. Sogand Zamani has not been afraid to fight through the ugly with skill, knowledge and experience and navigate the twists and turns with sound judgement and intregrity.....which is so much more than I can say about our previous attorney and opposing council.

We appreciated Sogand's help so much in helping us manage the second parent adoption for our family, and putting protections in place to ensure that we could make our family recognized by the legal world in the event of a tragedy, She made everything clear, simple, and as stress-free as possible.

Separating from one's spouse is one of the most personal things you may ever do, and if you choose to use the collaborative divorce process, you could not select a more accomplished, compassionate attorney than Sogand Zamani. From my first numb days of not quite knowing what was happening during the separation through the many days and weeks of hard work, and on into the final days of putting the finishing touches on the separation agreement and looking forward to the next phase in my life, Sogand was there with an informed but sympathetic guiding hand. She communicated promptly and proactively, took time to help me understand my legal options, developed a sense of my values and personality in suggesting possible approaches I might take to negotiating with my spouse, and moved the process forward as efficiently and effectively as possible. The separation has made this a long and difficult year for me, but since the legal side of the matter required me to work with an attorney, I was fortunate enough to open this painful experience to Sogand Zamani, whose legal talents are matched in their quality and depth only by her ability to connect on a human level with her clients. I would be happy to recommend her to anyone considering the collaborative divorce process.

I highly recommend Sogand. She has represented me for the past two years and half, in a very difficult custody and divorce battle, with jurisdiction issues between the USA and France. Sogand is strategical, knowledgeable, clear, efficient, fast, reliable and always available. I am truly happy to be able to rely on her expertise.

Ms. Zamani is knowledgeable, thorough, a strong and aggressive advocate, careful, affordable, courteous, caring, professional, hard-working, attentive, and careful to not spend more time (client’s money) than needed, - everything you could want in an attorney.
She counseled me from prior to my separation, through interim agreement negotiations, and through divorce settlement negotiations. She provided expert legal advice, as well as understanding the importance of the psychological side, and the family side. After a difficult time in mediation for the interim agreement she carefully reviewed the draft agreement and proposed changes that improved my position and clarified previously unclear issues.
Throughout the divorce settlement negotiations she advocated strongly for me through numerous back-and-forth communications with my ex’s attorney. She understood every item/asset at issue, and provided me with expert advice around issues of negotiating, for example, negotiation only an whole agreement, not piecemeal; of standing strong in the face of aggressive tactics, and staying focused on the issues – not letting emotion get the best of me – in order to best assess my own interests and most effectively negotiate, saving time, energy and money. She dealt expertly with a very aggressive and accomplished counterpart – the other attorney, preventing aggressive tactics from either giving the other side an advantage, or from derailing the process.
I am certain I did better financially in two areas than I would have with almost any other attorney: attorney’s fees paid by me, and what I received in settlement.
I recommend Ms. Zamani highly and without reservation.

An honest tough nosed attorney who makes sure that everyone is on the same page. I really appreciated her frankness in which she handled my case. Kept me looking toward the main goal and was instrumental in reaching an outcome that I was quite pleased with.

Sogand guided and helped me though a Marital Separation process.
She was direct, consistent, professional in all fields that we went through. /Financial, Personal, Institutional, etc.
All the issues were profoundly discussed and reviewed. She was careful with every detail and I always have trusted her opinion and experience.
She knows how to handle every situation being very supportive to the client.
I would strongly recommend her professional services and all professionals working with her.
