During the course of litigation, clients deserve a lot of attention.  They need help, they need money, they need to know what is going on with the case, they need assurance that they will get their day in court quickly, they need justice, they need to know the strength and the weakness of the case , they need to hear a warm, kind, and at the same time, strong voice speaking on their behalf, and they need to know their lawyer is an experienced fighter with a proven track record.  I have personally witnessed how in "large" firms, a client is yet another "case" and how their lawyers rarely return the client's call or inform the client of the status of the cases, and how cases take forever to resolve.  This is not how I run my office.  I am devoted to my clients.  I enjoy being a lawyer.  I develop a special human bond with my clients.  I try to become the voice of hope during a difficult period.  And, I am committed to recover the maximum amount of money possible to compensate my clients and their families for their injuries and losses.

Injury case
Attorney Eftelhari & Barbara were very helpful throughout my case. I never would have known that I was able to take action in this case if it weren't for them. Barbara was ALWAYS so quick to respond to ALL of my issues & concerns. She never failed to address all of the questions that I had. A huge thanks to both of them!

Good attorney
I hired Mr. Eftekhari as my attorney to help dealing with an insurance company after a vehicle collision I was hurt in. This was a completely new situation for me and I felt lost and confused. Mr. Eftekhari and his team guided me through the process and did whatever they could to help me out. The outcome wasn’t ideal, but luckily I wasn’t in a complete loss after dealing with a greedy insurance company.

Wrongful death
Mr. Eftekhari helped me and my family in a very tough time. He did so in an attentive, caring, and maybe most importantly, professional manner. Always responded quickly and openly, and did more than expected to reach a fair conclusion. Highly recommend.

Workmans comp case settled
Mr Eftekhari and his staff were a pleasure to work with, he even took time out of his busy day and had me come in to explain various things how settlements are determined. I always received a email back on anything that would come up ( this does not happen with most Attorneys). Thanks again. Mike

Accident injury case
Ehsan Is truly an outstanding artist of words. As we appeared in court I watched how the Attorney was very obtuse and abusive in all the wrong avenues. Trying to make us look ignorant. With just few words of wizardry & a calm State of mind was able to dismantle the opposites disarrayed world “ less is always more” it was as if a wand was waved to clear a spectrum to refreshing air & color that splashed over the Opponents gray conservative world! Hats off to you Ehsan and the well studied group of Excellent assistance. Always on top with the electronic answering wand in hand. Will recommend well deserved team. Thank you, Sincerely, Michael

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have the pleasure of knowing Mr. Eftekhari on many levels, and have developed tremendous respect for his law related talents as well as his humanity and intelligence. We need more lawyers like Mr. Eftekhari in our professional village."
Personal injury Attorney | Nov 21
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I have had the opportunity to work with Ehsan Eftekhari on a handful of matters and, quite frankly, it would be a crime for me not to take a few minutes to let fellow attorneys and prospective clients know what a class-act and added-value Ehsan is to the legal profession. Lawyers know what they know and learn what they must. Indeed, that is the least they should (hopefully) do. What sets Ehsan apart, however, is his humanity and ethical DNA. He is ever so cognizant of the human element in each case, often going above and beyond the call of duty to serve as the voice for the voiceless and those who feel intimated by large (and sometimes cruely unreasonable) insurance companies. It is a distinct pleasure to call Ehsan a colleague, because he gives lawyers, such as myself, a good name. I will continue to refer cases to and collaborate with Ehsan on cases, because I know (to quote Allstate, ironically): "They're in Good Hands." Here's to wishing that every lawyer was an Ehsan..."
Personal injury Attorney | Jun 04
Relationship: Co-worker
"I worked with Ehsan in a high-volume, fast paced plaintiff personal injury firm and Ehsan proved his mettle many times over. Ehsan is an extremely effective advocate on behalf of his clients. He works diligently and is extremely knowledgeable."
Unknown Attorney | Apr 19
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer. I know Mr. Eftekhari to be a hard working and very knowledgeable attorney. He has cultivated a reputation of an attorney who is successful at prevailing at trials and arbitrations. Oftentimes his clients are presented with very favorable settlement offers early on in the process. He is also a fine individual which makes him a pleasure to work with."
Personal injury Attorney | Feb 14
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse Ehsan Eftekhari. He is a tireless worker on behalf of injured victims. The compassion he has for his clients is easy to see. His knowledge of the law is impressive, to say the least. While many people in the personal injury field know the law well, Ehsan is one of the very few who shares his knowledge of the law with his peers. His knowledge of technology is second to none. In fact, if I have a technology question, Ehsan is the first person I turn to. I don't think I am alone in that regard. In summation, you have this lawyer who truly cares about his clients, who is a tireless worker, who knows the law well and who is an ace with the latest technology - what else could an injury victim want in a lawyer? I highly recommend Ehsan Eftekhari."
Personal injury Attorney | Nov 20
