A few years ago we hired her to help us and this was after the divorce was final and complete. She fed us with a bunch of great strategies that she would put in place to help, all ended up being untrue, whereby we ended up losing and not a single thing was changed or implemented as we had discussed in our meetings. She didn't win a single thing in court after we paid $10k, there was not even a reasonable negotiation put forth. When we reached out after to find out what happened and how this could happen after paying $10k, she refused to talk and said she would need another retainer. Lady...you just took $10k and couldn't bother to adhere to your oath of office. I think an explanation was the very least you could have offered. But nope...pour some salt in that wound...on move on to the next victim!
I hope it isn't you.
If the attorney doesn't listen, is short with you, doesn't give you the time, ignores questions...dishonest sums it up!

Used Jean and her firm for both my divorce and subsequent dispute over the selling of a marital home. The agreement they negotiated left me a bad position once the marital house was to be sold and left me spending approximately $35 thousand dollars on them, as they held the funds at their firm in escrow. As the court forced small amounts funds release, they insisted the vast majority of the funds be given to them for more fees. She and Kate were late to court every single time. It even took two months get a simple copy of a document which they didn't both to upload to their sharefile. Calls/emails were not returned timely and they were both often rude. I seriously think they forgot I was paying them. Jean agreed to be the individual to go to court with me, it was never communicated to me or discussed with me that Kate would be going to court instead. Unprofessional. During one meeting with Kate she was at her desk with her knees up on her desk so the she could be comfortable. Very passive aggressive by. Two years later, I fired the firm and settled the case myself within hours. Requested the balance to be released immediately and received a very nasty email. No attempt to make the experience right. I suggest you skip this firm.

Do not waste your time or money (a lot of money). You retain the law firm based on a consultation with an attorney. You post a retainer based on the consultation with that attorney. Your case is moving along and you are told that another client has priority over you. You are assigned a different attorney in the firm. This does not occur in the professional service world. My Judgment of Divorce document signed by the judge does not have my legal name correct on the document. A lawyer who does not know their own client's name only to have the correct name on the retainer invoice. I then have a settlement agreement that is a worthless document as I do not know where my children are living. But for more money (a lot of money) I can make an appointment and maybe find out.
Beware before you retain.

She was amazingly helpful and empathetic and compassionate to my situation. I had an attorney prior to her who didn't do a darn thing for me for well over a year, but Jean got right on my case and kept it moving along. Her staff is so very helpful as well. I highly recommend Jean.

Jean represented me during my divorce proceedings for a little over a year until an agreement was made. We were able to come to an agreement and settle out of court and mostly stay out of the court house. I felt represented very well and have the utmost confidence in Jean's legal prowess. Jean and her law office were always very easy to contact, I had no trouble getting ahold of someone if I had questions or updates for them. Jean and all her staff were very friendly and welcoming. I had as great an experience as one could have while going through the divorce process. Jean is an excellent lawyer and I would recommend her to anyone needing representation during divorce or custody battles.

In my opinion- WORST LAWYER POSSIBLE, I paid Jean and her team over $12,000 to do nothing more then shuffle papers. I do not feel she was efficient. Her office is in a run down building and the front door being locked all the time should be a good indication of what kind of service you will get. I feel she delayed everything possible and did not perform a divorce in a timely manner, I ended up having to switch attorneys because of how UNSATISFIED I was. Great communication at $70 (minimum) a phone call, great at not having the info you need and says she will call you back and start the clock all over again. PLEASE THINK TWICE BEFORE RETAINING HER. Check more reviews and think about how many GREAT reviews she has but many seem to be dated around the same time ?seems odd if you ask me? I would rather stay married to a person I hate then have to use Jean again.

Jean Mahserjian’s office was recommended to me by several acquaintances that all had direct positive experiences. I found their office to meet and exceed all of the expectations I had. If you are going to see an attorney it is not always for the most pleasant reasons. Jean was great in explaining all that I needed to know and more importantly listening to my concerns and adapting the general direction and demeanor of her techniques to fit my concerns. Jean and her staff’s wealth of knowledge and experience were critical in helping me to come to a positive resolution in a timely manner for the matter I was involved in. I would highly recommend Jean Mahserjian.

Words cannot describe how helpful and caring this law firm is. I was represented a few years ago in a divorce, and they did an ABSOLUTELY amazing job with a very tough situation. I needed some help with filing for custody of my daughter about 6 months ago and reached out to them and sat with Jean and she guided me through what my options were. The best part was she listened and was the most concerned about my daughter and what was right for her. She set me up with one of her attorney's there that was more familiar with the county I had to file in and after meeting with her (Jennifer) we sat and drew up the paperwork and filed. Throughout this stressful time the entire staff there was so helpful every step of the way and would respond so quickly with advice if needed. In late November I was awarded custody, now that was priceless. You guys are the best and what you have helped me with is priceless to my family and I. Thank you Jean, Jennifer, Alexis and Lindsey.
