She is among the best lawyers who is very prompt, smart and skillful.
I hired her after my initial consultation regarding a spousal support case. I know that she does what is best for the client without thinking more about extracting more money from the client. She is very thorough in her research and knows the law very well, the other attorney had to withdraw the case as they had no answer for Mehnaz's motion. She is very prompt in getting back to you if you have any questions etc. I very much recommend her as your attorney!!

Exceptional Experience
Mehnaz Khan helped me navigate through a very difficult and what could have been confusing time for me. She guided me through filing bankruptcy after my sons medical care ripped through all of my savings and 401k fund. She was knowledgeable, compassionate and understanding and I am so grateful to have been lucky enough to have her as my counsel. I recommend her 100% for anyone considering filing. She is thorough and helps you weigh all your options first. Fantastic attorney and wonderful person!

Amazing, professional and would 100% recommend!
Wow. That's all I can say. I've had a wonderful experience with Attorney Mehnaz Khan and her assistant Cristina and Cassie. The beginning of my process was a bit overwhelming but having them by my side to essentially guide and provide assistance in any way was exceptional. Everything was clearly laid out. Documents were provided, questions answered very directly and clearly and if there was ever a concern regarding the process, it was always addressed. A year later, and Mehnaz has been consistent across the board. Grateful to have found them!

Compassionate and strong
Mehnaz Khan helped me with a very stressful personal legal matter. I trusted her from the first meeting, and she upheld that trust. At every step of the way she explained things related to my case clearly, calmly and kindly. She was not judgmental of my situation, and she or her legal aide Stephanie Hernandez (also wonderful!)  were always available for my questions and concerns. She is very professional, no-nonsense, and strong.  My case went smoothly because she is so organized and detail-oriented, but I have no doubt that if problems had come up, she would have handled them with style. On her bookshelf is a plaque which says, "You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have." I feel this says a lot about Mehnaz Kahn: she is compassionate and strong and if  she is your lawyer, you can trust all will be well. She has raised my opinion of the whole profession. I am very thankful to have found her.
