Mr. Fallahi's firm reviewed our tax returns from up to 6 years ago. Our situation was complicated and his firm was diligent and professional.
Zaher is a CPA as well as an attorney and incredibly responsive and knowledgeable about tax Laws. Unlike larger firms that I have worked with, you get to work with him directly in a very cost efficient manner. He helped us to focus on the important issues, this approach allowed us to get much legal work done for a fraction of the cost at larger firms. .
He saved us a considerable amount of money and worked out a fee we could afford.
All in all, I would very highly recommend him to all my family and friends.
Mr falahi did a great job on handling our tax case which other firm couldn't do well and we really appreciated his trustworthy and professional services among the friendly and knowlegeble staff of his firm .
Zaher Fallahi is a rarity among most of the attorneys I have experienced. He is very thorough, has a genuine interest in what he does, and is great at it. Zaher answered my emails almost instantly, and was quite generous with his time. He has an excellent bedside manner, very clear and thoughtful, and he made me feel at ease right away.
Zaher was recommended to me by another tax attorney as, for one, being both a CPA and an attorney, and for two, having expertise in handling foreign tax matters since my situation had involved 1042-S. He gave me great value for my money, and so far, contacting him was the best advice I received this year.
I highly recommend his services to anybody in need, he is a good and honest guy, and I will gladly call on him again for any future tax issues.
Zaher Fallahi handled my OFAC case very professionally and in a short period of time. He is ethical, knowledgeable, responsive, and respectful. I am very pleased with his immediate replies to my phone calls and emails. I live in New York city, but I did not have to travel to California to meet him; we communicated effectively via phone conversations and emails. I have already recommended him to my relatives and they are also happy with his work as well.
I have known Mr. Falahi for about 5 years. I met him through the Orange County Trial Lawyers Association. I was the lead trial attorney in a malpractice action against an accounting firm and i needed an expert accountant to opine on the standard of conduct applicable to CPAs. I have been very impressed with his knowledge on tax matters as I have been listening to him on the KIRN 670 AM radio discuss various matters including issues related to Office of Foreign asset control (OFAC). Although my need for the expert chnaged, I would definitely hire Mr. Falahi for any tax related matters I or any of my clients may have in the future. On a more personal note, Zaher is a delightful individual, full of energy and a real desire to help people.
We were referred to Mr. Fallahi by another highly trusted attorney. After meeting him in person, we were absolutely confident that we would be in good hands, and we retained his services. He is truly a "people person" and goes out of his way to make sure that we feel comfortable with every decision that we make. Furthermore, in addition to his expertise in OFAC matters, his diverse qualifications as a CPA and his experience with various aspects of foreign and domestic tax compliance make him a uniquely qualified tax attorney.
A co-worker recommended Zaher to us about 9 years ago for income tax preparation and most recently, he handled our family's estate planning. Zaher is very professional, knowledgeable and thorough. Moreover, he is extremely attentive, and takes a personal interest in us as his clients.
I hired Mr. Fallahi to help me in an OFAC case. I did some research online before hiring him and all the reviews were positive. I am glad I made the decision to go with him. He is knowledgable and was always available by phone or email to answere my questions which was very important to me.
Knowledgeable, punctual, reliable and very caring. If you have tax issues he is the expert to ask. Also for OFAC cases, don’t just rely on someone who knows OFAC issues; these cases are closely related to tax issues that can bite you later. I have talked to various lawyers who only knew one of the two(Tax, OFAC) and that is not good enough. So if you need someone who is skilled in both he is definitely your pick.

I recommend Zaher Fallahi.
I used Zaher 6-12 months ago.
Zaher handled my Tax matter.
I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.
I have had the pleasure working with Dr. Fallahi for the past 8 months now. I am extremely satisfied and happy working with him on my OFAC and Tax matters. He was extremely responsive and explained every little detail in couple of meetings I've had with him. I have also recommended him to my family, which he immediately performed his best again and providing us with our OFAC license in less than 4-5 months. I would highly recommend him on the aforementioned subjects.
