Professionalism at its best
I wanted to give my most profound appreciation and gratitude to Cabanas law firm and staff. I wanted to give my thanks starting with Roxy Friedland who handle me so well to decide whether or not I should hire Cabanas Law Firm. I was previously turned down from other firms due to the lack of time to prepare the case and other factors that make my case that much complex. I had decided pretty much to go to trial on my own before I heard back from Cabanas law firm. Roxy made me feel welcome, secured, reassured me they can help and made it easy for me to decide with my doubts to have them take my case. I had a tough and difficult case for a Relocation/paternity trial that looked lost before it began. My former lawyer had recently passed away and have such a short timeframe of the upcoming trial, the date was already set and no room for a continuance since has reached and exceeded the limit. I'm so grateful for Gabriela Bennasar who was so supportive at my hardest time throughout my case caring and dedicated to making sure I was doing well on daily bases, Jackie Zenon worked gently with me and supportive me with everything needed. Attorney Laura Grossman was amazing. From the beginning she interviews my case and was very honest about the fact that my case was a long shot but not impossible to have the results I wanted and for them to defend. She was always responsive and answered all of my questions very well, wise, precise, professional, experienced and with a heart of gold. She is and was very compassionate when I needed it the most and outstanding defending my case in all of my disputes with the opposite party. Mr. Cabanas accepted my case with not much detailed information for the trial. When I hired him my time was limited with the set trial date. He manages to handle it so swiftly picking up the pieces from my former lawyer and proceeded to represent me. Attorney Sergio Cabanas is very knowledgeable, prompt, courteous, to the point, and is very in tune with what’s going on. He has been committed to providing the utmost professionalism and respect since the moment I met him. He has voiced my concerns as needed, including advocating for my parenting time during a very difficult time with my trial. I am so grateful for his efforts and representation. He was very good at keeping me updated. Goals were clearly communicated and performed. Not only was he able to defend me from a number of false and unjust accusations from the Guardian Ad Litem that was on my case, hired by the opposition party, but when my options appeared limited and the likelihood of a satisfactory resolution seemed hopeless, he believed in me and my quest to win my case, his calm and empathetic demeanor offered emotional succor. My family and I are eternally grateful for his service and I hereby recommend Mr. Sergio Cabana and his much diligent staff without reservation. I am so blessed that I have found Cabanas Law Firm for my representation. They have exceeded my expectations. I am more than satisfied with the services that I have received. Cabanas Law Firm put their hard work and commitment first before financial interest they were so compassionate working with me with my limited financial situation. Although it is a business they are running they are willing to work with you and for you. Judgment was a success in my favor and the nightmare of my kids moving out of state has ended. I am forever in debt with Attorney Sergio Cabana for giving me back my life with my children. I wouldn’t think of using anyone else for future services.

Very professional and trully exceptional attorney
I have met Mr. Sergio today for the first time. I almost lost hope to find a good attorney and he is a person who loves the law and money is important but secondary. I will be starting my case with this firm, however I feel to share this with others. I had several attorneys before and spent five years in a court house so far and therefore have some experience. Sergio will asses the situation from all angles, including client's financial situation and truly focuses on the actual goal. He's like a surgeon, first are your needs and loves his work. He listens to your needs and takes into account your views, he seems to work more as a team and not traditional 'factory' to collect funds. So far so good, I think I hit a jack pot but know the actual results will be measured at the end.

Best Attorney in Town "Bar None"-I'm Serious!
This team of attorneys return phone calls and respond to emails asap! They do their research and treat your case like (get ready) like you really matter as a human being. They are experienced, aggressive and they give you all the options. I have hired too many attorneys in my life time, so trust me when I say the Cabanas Team is the "Best in the Business." They know what to do and they do it. Here is my advice: Hire them for your divorce or separation before your spouse does. Whoever hires this team first has the advantage in my opinion.

Highly recommend this very efficient group of professionals. All star cast. Everyone on the team plays their part and they come together as a finely tuned, very effective machine that gets the job done. What was originally a sticky situation became a breeze after enlisting their services to handle my divorce. Attention to detail and responsiveness are where the paralegals at Cabanas Law Firm excel. Roxy made setting up my business a seamless process! Stellar!

Great Firm
The divorce process is such a stressful and scary situation. Allison Coates and team made the process go so smooth. They also helped me with a loan modification along the way. We are in the final stages of the Divorce and I’m confident that all will Go as planned with their guidance and support.

Highly recommend
This all started with Jackie when I called their office. As you all know, when your dealing with these issues unless you know a lawyer or are referred to one, you can only trust Google. It's been a rough road, extremely to say the least with my case. When I spoke with Jackie she made me feel like I was already apart of their family. I can't say enough about the ease she gave me through out this case. Laura, my lawyer, is amazing, talented, upfront, trustworthy and a human! She knew how to deal with my type of case and really got me and my son the best outcome possible. They are always communicating, emailing and making sure they are on top of everything. I am so happy God brought this team my way and I would highly recommend Laura and Serigo to anyone. I thank them for being the type of lawyers they are!

A lawyer who really cares.
I have used Sergio and his law firm for my divorce, child custody and for my living will and trust and I find him personally to be very caring, considerate and attentive to my legal needs. What separates his law firm from others is that he actually listens to you and works on your case immediately. I find other lawyers do the work last minute but Sergio and his team are active from the beginning while providing me updates and good communication. I would definitely recommend his services.

Although deciding to get divorced was so difficult, I am happy I finally decided to choose Sergio Cabanas to handle my divorce case. I have referred my aunt here as well because I know they will take good care of her in her very difficult situation. The attorneys at Cabanas Law Firm are the best and work really hard to get the case done fast. If you want professionals to get the job done right, I recommend Cabanas Law Firm!

Excellent Divorce Firm
Sergio Cabanas is a caring and very experienced attorney who made sure I got a good result in my divorce case. I also returned to Cabanas Law Firm to create an Estate Plan after the divorce and the attorney really spent a lot of time helping me make a plan that fit my particular situation. I'm very glad I came back to the Cabanas Law Firm again!
