About me


Attorney Brian A. Bayati is the founder of Bayati Law Group.  Brian is a graduate of the University of California, Hastings College of the Law.  During law school, Brian was a judicial extern to the United States Court of Appeals (9th Circuit), and was active as a public service mediator. 


Prior to founding Bayati Law Group, Brian was legal counsel for a national corporation; and, thereafter, member of a prominent Los Angeles based civil litigation firm with numerous offices throughout California and various other states. Prior to committing his practice exclusively to litigation of family law issues, Brian's practice involved litigation of complex civil lawsuits.


Brian's numerous involvements and affiliations within the legal community include, but are not limited to, being an active member of the Orange County Bar Association, the Chairman for the Orange County Bar Association Lawyer Referral and Information Service, an active member of the Orange County Society of Fellows, an arbitrator for the Orange County Bar Association's fee dispute arbitration program, a graduate of the Orange County Bar Association College of Trial Advocacy, and member of the Board of Trustees for a prominent non-profit student run legal services provider in Orange County.


Brian's practice at Bayati Law Group is focused exclusively on family law litigation.  Brian incorporates into his legal practice his experience in real estate, finance, and asset valuation to add practicality to various legal strategies, which can otherwise turn into ineffective approaches to dispute resolution. 


Brian has various legal industry recognitions, which include, but are not limited to, being named amongst Orange County's top family law attorneys by OC Metro Magazine in 2009, 2010 and again in 2014.  In 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015, Brian was named a Rising Star by Super Lawyer Magazine - a yearly recognition bestowed upon up to 2.5% of the attorneys in a specific legal practice in Southern California.  In 2014, the National Academy of Family Law Attorneys recognized Brian as one of the "Top 10 Under 40" family law attorneys in Southern California. In 2015, the American Society of Legal Advocates selected Brian as one of the "Top 40 Under 40" family law attorneys in the State of California.
