She has always come through for me whenever I needed her the most. She has come for me on a day when she lost her grandfather . She showed up at the court the day she came from different country. That tells that she always puts her clients first.
I have been handling my aunt's divorce case since 2004.
Prior meeting Ilona Antonyan, I hired and fired 3 different attorneys because they were unable to perform. I've been using her service ever since. I truly believe that she is the best.
I could go on and on with the story of my aunt's complicated divorce procedure including contempt hearings......The point is that the ending result of the hearings was exactly what we wanted and I believe that there are not many attorneys in San Diego who could handle a case as aggressively and productively as Ilona Antonyan.
Advice: I know that we are all very emotional and stressed out due to divorce /other court procedures but try not to tell her what to do and try not to bother her with too many phone calls, it distracts her from doing her job. She is a pro therefore she knows what to do, she is able to help and she is very clever and honest.
There are 3 reasons why I would highly recommend Ilona Antonyan to anybody going through a divorce.
First of all, at my initial consultation, she recommended me to a parenting class which really helped me to parent/be there for my kids and dealing with my ex. I felt that I was really helped by her, even though, I hadn't hired her yet. I cannot stress the positive impact this had on my children, me ex, and myself, not to mention the entire divorce process. I realized that Ms. Antonyan really cares not only about the work she does, but about people and families she helps.
Secondly, I know first hand that Ms. Antonyan has the best staff, who not only are knowledgeable and attentive, but are willing to go the extra mile for you. They are really, a great group of professionals who care about what they do. There was one early evening that some documents needed my signature, I could not go up to her office. I pulled my car up to the entrance and someone from her office brought the documents to me, to sign. It's those little things that her staff did, that made them stand out.
Thirdly, and certainly the most important. Ms Antonyan. Her extensive knowledge of the law and cases. The way she applies that knowledge to the documents and exhibits she prepares for court. Her work ethic, and the way she prepares, not only herself, but her clients for court. All this, combined with her great personality make for a great impact to all those involved in the case. At court AND the negotiation table, is where all the mentioned above, came together and was the MOST effective.
My case was probably one of the lengthiest and did involve trial AND a settlement. Needless to say, I was really happy with the outcome of my divorce case, I felt protected at EVERY step of the way. And looking back, I know that things went well for me, in large part, because of Ilona Antonyan.
I was very pleased with my entire divorce process with Ilona Antonyan. Divorce is never easy and always the emotional. I was very happy with Ilona, she understood the importance of compassion and working hard. She's a great Lawyer and did an amazing job. I recommend Ilona to anyone who is looking for caring and understanding Attorney.
Ilona and her staff are friendly, efficient, and expedient. I feel very blessed to have found such a wonderful professional who goes beyond the call of duty for her clients. Since she has been on my case, I have peace of mind because I know that she truly cares. I haven't had good experiences with attorneys in the past, but Ilona gives the profession a GOOD name.
Won both of my cases. Handled everything just the way I wanted. Would recommend this law firm to everybody.
