Zein came highly recommended to me by a friend, and I hired him to resolve a residential real estate matter for me. The case became long and drawn out, so I ended up retaining his services for approximately two years. During these two years, Zein proved to be a highly competent, intelligent, diligent, and extremely trustworthy attorney. There were times when I didn't fully understand certain aspects of the case, but I felt like I could always trust him to give me the right advice. He never made a decision without thoroughly explaining it to and discussing it with me, and always patiently listened to the opinions I had on certain issues. At the end of it all, we ended up with the best outcome we could hope for, and I believe it is due to Zein's incredible diligence and attention to detail. We could have approached this issue many, many different ways, but the strategy that Zein devised for us was, I believe, ultimately the best solution and got us exactly what we wanted. I would not hesitate to hire him again.
I would give Mr. Obagi more than 5 stars! He handled an ongoing dispute with a major credit card. He didn’t overpromise results to get my business, which I sincerely appreciate. I previously hired 3 lawyers and they all just told me what I wanted to hear, not because it was right, but because they wanted my money. Mr. Obagi is not like this at all; he is one lawyer you can actually trust! He was very good at estimating the time it would take to reach a resolution. He kept me informed during the whole process and was readily available. He did exactly what I asked him to do and his efforts resulted in a better outcome than I had hoped. Mr. Obagi worked extremely hard for me – he works as if he has something to prove and that was a significant advantage for having him on my side. He was also diligent in his dealings with opposing counsel and made sure all bases were covered. I would definitely use Mr. Obagi again for any personal or business need.
Unfortunately in my life I have had to work with several attorneys, whether it be for families of children with special-needs or for the elder abuse of my mom, and from my experience I have found it EXTREMEMLY difficult to find a good, hard-working attorney that really puts the clients needs first. Well, I finally found one! Mr. Obagi is exemplary! He worked exceedingly hard to help me fight another attorney that over charged me and helped me get money back! Every step of the way he always listened to me and worked with my needs! That is something that is truly hard to find in an attorney. He is extremely intelligent, he knows the law inside and out and knows how to fight for his clients rights and he does this until he gets justice! Thank you Mr. Obagi for taking my case and fighting so intensely hard until justice was met! You are a wonderful attorney and I know this hard work will make you a true success! I will definitely be recommending you to my special-needs clients and any friends that may be in the unfortunate situation where they need an attorney. I know from my experience finding an attorney can be very difficult especially because at the time you need an attorney, you are generally very vulnerable and panicked, this makes clients easy targets for so many bad attorneys, but you are quite the exception to that rule! Thank you so much for being honest, fair and remarkable!
Zein saw me for an initial free consultation on one hour's notice late on a Friday afternoon despite the fact that he was concurrently conducting interviews. He immediately began reviewing my case and met with me over the weekend. He conveys an air of confidence yet approachability, so I immediately felt reassured that my case was in good hands. Zein pursued the matter with a sense of personal pride, committing to work well beyond the scope of my expectations. In the end, my case was dismissed. Opposing counsel failed even to appear. The judge even commented that Zein was "unusually well prepared." Zein is a credit to the profession.
Mr. Obagi is very thorough, honest, punctual and knowledgeable. Your interests are his number one priority, he handles your case as if it is his own. He handled 2 business cases for me and a traffic matter. In one of the cases Mr. Obagi got terminating sanctions, proved up damages of over $100k, obtained punitive damages and then filed a complaint for non-dischargeability in bankruptcy court. He was able to prove that along with negligence and contract violations fraud took place. If you want an attorney who truly cares about you, Mr. Obagi is your man.
Zein has been one of the easiest people I have dealt with. I have called Zein at all times of the day and every moment and time, he has picked up and took his time to explain to me no matter how long it took. Zein takes alot of pride in his work and it does show time after time. If I ever run into a buckle again or have any issues, he is the first person I would call to handle my situation.
Thanks Zein for all the work you helped me out with.
My Vehicle was stolen from my place of business. The Insurance company kept trying to deny my claim. They literally kept me on the hook for 5 months, with no rental car, no car to drive, and literally frustration beyond belief. Luckily, around the same time, I heard about Zein Obagi Jr. He helped my cousin with his case. After speaking with Zein, and explaining to him my situation, the next morning, he took over my case, And went to my deposition with me. literally two days after I hired Zein, the insurance company caved in, and paid for my claim. I could not be happier with his service. He expedited the process far quicker than anyone expected, and most of all, he was very proffessional the entire time. I have and would recommend him to anyone seeking legal counsel.
Zein has handled a number of real estate-related matters for me over the past year, particularly a landlord-tenant matter, and has been consistently responsive, thoughtful, and timely. He has a great attitude and is willing to do whatever needs to be done to make sure that the legal problem gets solved. I will hire him again in the future.
