Yasha Heidari is a rockstar of the legal world. I have used other attorneys in the past. Mr. Heidari is on another level.
I had a complicated case. I spoke with attorneys that gave me all sorts of conflicting advice and none of them made me feel very good about my case. I received Yasha (Mr. Heidari's) name through a personal friend that spoke extremely highly of him and hyped him up. His hype was more than deserved.
He is professional, smart, likeable, responsive, and every other quality you would want in an attorney. It's almost like he could see into the future. He seemed 5 steps ahead of everyone. I could go on and on and on. He helped me in a difficult time and I could not be happier with him and the way he handled my case.
Yasha is an excellent attorney and I'm lucky I met him.

I recently used Mr. Heidari and had both great results and great experience. I googled him and found this page, and to my suprise, I'm going to be his first review.
I came to know and use Mr. Heidari from a friend of mine who highly recommended him. To be quite honest, when I met him, I thought he seemed a bit younger than attorneys I have used in the past, but I will tell you right now: I will easily give Mr. Heidari my HIGHEST recommendation and will tell anyone, without a doubt, that they can't pick a better choice than Mr. Heidari.
It didn't take long for me to learn why my friend gave Mr. Heidari such a high recommendation. First, he is VERY knowledgable. He seemed to have a mastery of all subjects at hand. I've dealt with quite a few attorneys in the past, and I am a professional myself-- I can easily tell when someone is blowing smoke. Mr. Heidari does not blow smoke. He is exceptionally smart.
Second, he is extremely responsive. One of my biggest gripes with attorneys I've used in the past is that they didn't keep me in the loop, would take a long time to respond to my calls, etc. This is quite the opposite with Mr. Heidari. When I first met Mr. Heidari, I asked him what made him and his firm special. One of the things he told me was that his firm tried to make each client feel like he or she is their only client. Initially, I thought that was simply good marketing, but I will tell you that he is 100% correct. He made me feel like I was special and always had access to him. I once called him at his office at 9 p.m. at night intending to leave him a voicemail, but to my suprise, he answered the phone and spent around an hour talking to me. When we had difficulty scheduling a meeting and some deadlines coming up, he met with me on the weekend. I even noticed he didn't bill me for most of our conversations and asked him if it was a mistake, to which he responded that's not how he does business. WOW! (My previous attorneys would charge me through the nose if they told me "Good morning".)
Third, and definitely most important, he won my case! You should have seen the way he DESTROYED the opposing attorney's arguments! It was a pleasure to see. (I almost felt bad for the opposing attorney. I say ALMOST!) This seemed to be the general trend with Mr. Heidari. Even though I'm not a lawyer and sometimes had difficulty understanding the legal aspects of his letters, e-mails, and court documents, it was even clear to me that he was doing an exceptional job. (Mind you, Mr. Heidari would always explain to me what was going on and tell me the next step that was going to be taken without me having to ask. He was also very patient, understanding, and helpful with all of my questions even though I admit I can be a difficult and demanding person sometimes.)
Overall, I've said a lot, but the point is that Mr. Heidari is an exceptional attorney and I'm very happy I used him. I'm not the type of person that writes reviews either. I don't think I've written another review in the past 10 years, but I simply feel exceptionally good about my experience with him. Everything else aside, if I need legal services, I will use him again. This is 100% without a doubt. I simply don't care what the matter is or where the matter is. He's earned my business for life. I will also recommend him to everyone I know (and their uncles) because he is simply that good.
Yasha, if you read this, THANK YOU!

Relationship: Worked together on matter
I highly endorse this lawyer. Mr. Heidari is the best litigator I have ever worked with. He is also one of the top 5 administrative lawyers in the State of Georgia. His zealous advocacy is only matched by his acute intelligence and skill in pursuing complex, high-stakes cases.
