Afshin handled a couple different civil matters for me and I could not be happier with his representation. He leveraged his experience, the law, and every shred of information I provided him to do everything within his control to give us the highest probability of a positive outcome. In any type of court case there will inevitably be situations where you need to rely on your attorney's experience to be able to react quickly and mitigate unanticipated events. Afshin is intuitive, very intelligent, and comes to court prepared for any such event. My divorce was anything but your every day run-of-the-mill case. It included my ex-wife taking our kids to another state and refusing to return and other civil matters. Through all of the turmoil he kept the case moving forward by communicating with me, the court, the opposing attorneys, and when necessary even my ex-wife. It was because of Afshin's involvement and caring about his client that he was able to move a divorce case from very contentious in the early to middle stage to an amicable agreement out of court in the end. I can even report at this time that my ex-wife and I have a good co-parenting relationship. I am not sure that would be the case had I had representation from an attorney other than Afshin. I gladly recommend Afshin to anyone looking for rock solid, engaged representation.

AP, did a fantastic job representing me while I was out of state. He kept me very informed via email, and he responded to all my inquiries in a timely and professional manner. He truly knows his ‘stuff’ and is well respected in the judicial system for his area. He was even willing to work with me on pricing.
Overall, I was very satisfied and lucky to find Mr. Pishevar to assist me with my defense. He saved my time and money by handling everything for me via email and phone, saving me a couple trips back to Maryland.

I admit it, I have needed a attorneys for a lot of different things over the past few decades, but over the past seven years AP has become my go-to guy whenever I have a legal problem. AP really cares about doing what is right for his clients - he gives 100% all the time, it's amazing.
AP has really helped me out when I needed it the most, that's for sure! I was so relieved the first time - he gets results, but he also gives it to you straight. AP helped me understand what was happening so I could make good decisions, and everything happened just like he said. The man knows his stuff! AP is a stand up guy and you can trust what he says.
I have known some super good people who have gotten done over really bad just because they had a bad attorney, especially in divorces and criminal stuff. Happens all the time. I don't know if those bad ones are just stupid crooked or lazy, but they can really mess up your life forever.
But AP rocks! I refer people to AP any time I know someone who needs someone to look out for them in a legal situation.
AP does criminal or civil stuff and even some immigration, so he pretty well has it covered. AP knows his limits, and he has high standards - if there is something you need that he doesn't do, he knows someone who does, and you can bet that they will be good.

He was great in dedicating his time to research all possibilities of the laws and status to determine the best way to fight the case. He advised and explained what was in our best interest. He would explain exactly what he was filing with the court and what would be mailed to opposing counsel. If there was an emergency, he was always available. I could not ask for a better attorney.

Mr. Pishevar is probably the best attorney money can buy; WHY??? Because he digs deep into your case and assures his client that failure is not an option. He's been my loyal, dedicated, and helpful legal advisor for nearly 10 years - and I have never once considered alternate counsel. By the way - I've prevailed each time he's represented me...

Recommand to change the title of review to " Mr. Pishevar's Law Firm Office Review" since my case was presented by his team and not by him particularly. When we talked about team performance, the level of knowledge, application of knowledge, resposibilities and communication level of each individuals matters.
Mean while, there was a satisfaction on my case.
By the way, after click on preview, the answer to question " Last hire this attorney?" show up as •I used Afshin 6-12 months ago." which is not a correct statement. I know and used Mr. Pishevar's professional skills for over 10 years.

Mr. Pishevar is the best lawyer you could look for. Everything that you want in a lawyer he is and then some.. My husband was looking at a 6year jail sentence but Mr.Pishevar did not only look at what was in black and white but he wants your side of whatever the case may be. He made us feel like everything we had to say and ask was importent, he did not ignore us or push us off he took his time and he has a LARGE amount of patients with his cliants. With his patients my husband is only lookin at 1month work-release (PRC) and 1year probation. Mr. Pishevar didn't make us feel like we were "stupid" for repeating questions or just asking "bad" questions because he is in full understanding your scared, frightened, or even just angry. Mr. Pishevar also understands that people make mistakes and he keeps in mind everyone is innocent till proven guilty. I send everyone that tells me they need a lawyer to him because i know that they will be just as satisified as I am everytime I NEED Mr. Pishevar.

AP's representation of my case was an consummate success. I recommend him without reservation to handle complex legal issues in a professional and expedient manner. I have worked with litigation attorneys in my professional career and they were all exceptionally talented lawyers, but AP supersedes them in his knowledge of the specific practice laws, his advocacy skills, and his attention to his client's needs. He was exceptionally honest in his assessment of the case and he was always timely and professional in his communications with opposing counsel. AP made numerous attempts to settle my case though all available means. When a trial became unavoidable, his mastery of matrimonial and property laws and the recent decisions made by the courts affecting these laws was crucial to the final decision. AP utilized his strengths as a trial lawyer to examine expert witnesses and cross examine witnesses in a highly effective manner. His summation was concise, persuasive, and most importantly, addressed the precise points of law required to decide the case. Family law is emotional and contentious by its nature if it goes to trial. AP was never those things. His professionalism in the court room, during the depositions, and the final preparation for trial made a difficult experience easier for me. In any legal matter, you need more than the law on your side; you need someone who has tremendous perseverance to obtain a successful outcome. AP exceeded my expectations as a lawyer and as person who cared about his clients. His staff was supportive and knowledgeable and able to assist in all facets of the case. Divorce is never a pleasant experience, but I did not have to worry about my legal representation. I knew it was the best.

I was introduced to Mr. Pishevar by another lawyer I met in DC. At that time I did not know that I would require his services. He believed in me and the work I was doing.
When I contracted him for services he made promises which he has kept. Additionally, he achieved results that I had not expected considering the circumstances. He stayed in the office long hours preparing for court filings and appearances.
I believe in him and am certain that anyone contracting his services will be well represented.

A.P. is absolutely amazing and I don't say that lightly! He reliable, caring and really knows the law. He worked on a major dispute I had with a local Maryland jurisdiction and held my hand through the entire process - not to mention - he also made my problem(s) go away quickly and was always up front and honest about his fees and each step of the process. He will communicate with you and never hit you with surprises.
I highly recommend him and hope I never have to endure anymore legal headache but if I do I KNOW exactly who to call - A.P. Thank you and believe me - he is worth every penny.

Afshin's outgoing personality, his common sense approach to problems, his zeal to win, and his excellent speaking ability got him elected as president of the student body at the law school. Let him put those skills to work for you. He is extremely loyal and hard-working. He will go to great lengths when necessary. I highly recommend him to anyone.

A.P. has represented me on a variety of cases including 2 accidents where I was not at fault, a divorce and child custody case and 2 company incorporations. In one of the accident cases he got a settlement even when I thought one was not possible after I did not go to physical therapy due to my schedule. He is a bulldog and aggressive and represented me with tenacity, passion and verve. He is a classical lawyer who stands up for his clients and gives them the personal attention and time they deserve. He also helped me get full physical custody of my kids even though I am the Dad and the courts usually favor the moms. In my business incorporations both businesses were set on solid footing and both are doing really well thanks in part to his counsel. I can't say enough good things about him. He is a lawyer I will use for life.
