Atousa did a great job for me during a stressful time in my life. She prepared me for best case and worst scenarios and was always clear and honest. She did a extremely thorough job and it took the judge about 30 seconds to side with me. Nonetheless, we were still ready for a protracted battle. Highly recommend!
I was referred to Mrs. Saei from my last Lawyer who I worked with in San Diego. I am so glad I got the opportunity to speak her....she really cares! I could not believe how helpful she was and how much she was willing to go out of her way for me. I have had bad experiences before with other attorney's who were focused mainly on getting you in their office just so they could get your money....she is DEFINETLY NOT ONE OF THEM! She truly cares and wants to help. Thank you so much!
Atousa Saei was exceptional on all aspects of my case. Her ability to communicate and address my issues was outstanding. She explained all of my options and gave me the best advise to achieve the outcome I had hoped for. Her patience and compassion for her client's outcome is evident and admirable. She is prompt (always) to return calls and messages which was very reassuring to me. Her knowledge of family law and the courts made my case a success. I appreciate her work on my case and will be using her on any future matter. A smart and resourceful lawyer, who believes in justice. She was able to resolve my case successfully with positive results.
Atousa Saei was very helpful and professional in an uncomfortable and unfamiliar situation. She offered all of my options and let me choose the one that would meet my needs.
Atousa Saei recently helped a friend of mine with her divorce and since she's a little shy, I am writing this review on her behalf. My friend was going through a NASTY high asset divorce and had the most expensive Century City lawyers representing her. She was getting no where with these lawyers but continued to recieve a big fat bill every month.
Then she was referred to Ms. Saei by a friend that used her services in a child custody matter. Once she got on board, the cost of the litigation became 1/2 the amount and the results were coming in twice as fast. Ultimately the pressure of the case made her husband fold because Ms. Saei discovered his over seas assets and there was a full settlement!!!
My divorce was a very emotional time for me and my (then) spouse was a major bully, wanting to simply walk away from the marriage with everything and leave me with nothing. Atousa and her team were absolute champs when it came to defending my case. Her assistant patiently listened and encouraged me while I took inventory of what was mine and what was my spouses, all while having an emotional breakdown. The first "offer" my spouse made, Atousa told me to get up because we were leaving due to the absolutely ridiculous and offensive offer. The divorce process lasted for more than a year and although it was exhausting, Atousa firmly believed we could get justice, and she was right. My spouse had withheld information and although we couldn't prove some of it, he didn't know that and got scared. A few months before our actual court date to let the judge decide, we met and Atousa made an offer with a "take it or we'll see you in court" approach and by the end of the meeting, we walked away with what we asked for. Atousa made sure to include most of her attorney fees in the offer so I didn't have much to pay by the end. She was so professional but also felt like a real friend during the entire ordeal. I was very lucky to find Atousa and would recommend her in a heart beat for anyone seeking representation in a divorce. She's got your back!
For over 1 year my spouse and her attorney have been dragging on my divorce costing me time, money and grief. Atousa agreed to take on my divorce case 7 months ago. Today in court she was able to demonstrate to the judge the prolonging of the case by the other side which was costing me money, the understating of my spouses income and overstating of her expenses using her employment and business records, her court filings and tax returns. During the hearing she did not allow the lawyer for my spouse to make baseless claims about my income but strongly and successfully objected to each and every one of them. At the end of the day she was able to get my spouse to pay me spousal support, allow me keep my vehicles, and got me very low non-retroactive child support. Atousa is highly knowledgeable in family/divorce law, articulate and was very aggressive when representing me and had a great command of the law and facts of my case that other lawyers would need to be reminded of. Atousa was genuinely concerned about me and for my financial situation, my ability to continue this matter and she made every effort to resolve the matter a.s.a.p. with this in mind and with my best interests in mind. I am certain there a few good divorce attorneys out there but I would highly recommend her based on my experience as her client and more importantly at the results she got me. She did not allow the other party an inch to make a baseless case and, their request for attorney fees was denied as well. If you want a divorce attorney who will strongly represent you tooth and nail, I recommend her.
I was very fortunate to attain Attorney/Lawyer Atousa Saei to represent me regarding "Family Law." Everything that was expected was met. She's very knowledgable, upfront/pushy (but in a good way) when necessary, keeps you up to date with whatever information you need to know. Listens to all your needs in what your case may be regarding. She definitely gets the job done and the right way. So if you're looking to attain a trustworthy, tough and gets the job done attorney/lawyer regarding any type of child custody, she's quite the candidate.
Thank you Ms. Saei for all that you've done for me :)
Atousa represented me in my move away from California to the east coast in 2009. I was being railroaded by opposing counsel, and as a pro se litigant, was absolutely lost and needed help desperately. I contacted her soon thereafter and merely made mention of my legal issues, and she asked that I send her everything ASAP to review my case. She was under the gun with several other clients, but was able to squeeze my court date appearance in at the last moment, with little to no notice or time to prepare all of our responses, and pulled it off nonetheless.
Needless to say, I left that day with the judge granting me a 3000 mile move away, which Atousa herself said she had not seen before. (Keep in mind that Halle Berry was denied her move away!) It is my understanding that move aways are no small feat, and inherently delicate in nature.
The most impressive part was the manner in which she conducted herself in our appearance during trial. Atousa was respectful but firm with opposing counsel, and presented my case before the judge in such a fashion that he granted me a 3000 mile move away pending a full custody evaluation, to which was found in my favour. Atousa was firm but fair, understanding but realistic in her advice and suggestion to me, and most importantly, encouraged and offered healthy and productive co-parenting ideas to implement with the other parent. This is direct proof of her paramount desire for not only the best interest of the children, but of her client retaining his or her sanity and promoting effective co-parenting. Moreover, her knowledge of the law is unparalleled. She definitely knows what she is doing, and it shows.
Overall, I have recommended Atousa to my family and friends and will continue to do so whenever asked if I know of a good divorce attorney. I do! She's the best divorce attorney in Beverly Hills.
Thank you so much, Atousa. You kept my family together.
Very respectfully yours,
A very relieved and content parent
This girl rocked the courthouse! She made two special appearance for me on an emergency basis on my divorce case. She stepped in last minute, took over the case and came to court for 2 full days. She handled the matter and at the end I ended up wining the case.
Not that many attorneys can come in on the last minute, come up to speed with the facts of the case and argue so well that we win our case!!!
Thank you Ms. Saei!!!
