    • I do not recommend Marjan Shansab.
    • I hired Marjan 6-12 months ago.
    • Marjan handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I hired her for a divorce case in 2011 , got an agreement from both parties and was ready to go in front of the judge to finalize it but Marjan asked for more money even though i paid her almost $3000 to represent me and she wouldn't go before the judge in the final hearing until I paid up. I'm not rich and with this messy divorce couldnt afford the increase, so we had to cancel the hearing. I eventually came back from the same case again and that was the silly mistake i ever made by going back to her , she didn't handle the case well but would justify the outcome by blaming the judges saying "they are not good judges and discriminatory." she had me represent myself one time even though i was still paying her . i really don't understand her reasoning or why she did all that but she ruined everything. but doing. its just sad and i will never recommend her to anyone. There are a lot of lawyers out there that will treat a client right and be honest...

      Lawyer Comment:

      I am sorry you feel the way you do. However, your complaint is completely untrue. Your first divorce was "non-suited" by you and your spouse in a document that you both signed. You agreed to non-suit your divorce for reasons that I can't comment on here. Second, your first divorce was far from done. It was going to trial because your spouse revoked the agreement - this is before you and your spouse decided to non-suit your case. If you felt this strongly about my services, you should not have returned again and retained me again. I worked very hard on your case and gave you the best advice. You decided to agree with your spouse on the morning of trial, in the second case, and even stated so on the record. No one forced you. Again, I'm sorry that you feel this way.

    • I recommend Marjan Shansab.
    • I hired Marjan 1-3 years ago.
    • Marjan handled my Family matter.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    Marjan is a great attorney and one of the best I've worked with, personally and in my field of work. She took my case and fought for me to the end. Case was very long and frustrating yet she stayed on top of it and got me great results. Definitely recommended and has earned any and all of my future business.

    You can't get any better than Marjan. She was such a blessing in our lives through a very difficult time. She never gave up and was never intimidated by anyone who crossed her path. She is the best at what she does and you can't go wrong with her.

    I hired Marjan last year to represent me in my divorce action. She did an incredible job for me. I could not be happier with her. I admire people like her who have integrity and dignity. She does not let the other side fool her or intimidate her. She definitely fought for me and I am pleased with my decision to hire her as my counsel.

    • I do not recommend Marjan Shansab.
    • I hired Marjan more than 3 years ago.
    • Marjan handled my Immigration matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    She does not have enough knowledge specially in immigration. My case is still pending because as a lawyer she did not make sure that we have submitted everything we needed to.
