Straightforward & Proactive
Zara was candid from the start about various routes for ending my marriage, which helped me to make the best decision for my situation. Her insider's expertise on divorce empowered me to move quickly and strategically. I was fortunate not to encounter many roadblocks from my ex, but a part of that was because Zara came down tough in the beginning.

Definitely Recommend!
Zara and her team are definitely a GREAT team to have representing you. She handled my case in the most time and money efficient way. She was very professional, kept me updated throughout the entire long trial, and was tough when needed to be. Definitely recommend her for any family legal cases.

Change of status VISA for spouse
Went in for a consultation on how my wife and I could get a change of her status VISA after we married. Zara explained all information in terms of what we needed to gather, how long the process could take and prepared us for the interview. We hired Zara to put the paperwork together and to prepare us for the coming interactions with Immigration services. Zara promptly put all paperwork together and provided us with additional resources to aid in the process. We would like to say that Zara was absolutely wonderful, she answered all questions promptly via text or email. Everything at the interview turned out well without a hitch.

Best of the Best
Attorney Ali had all the right answers that I ask her. No sugar coating on what was going to happen. Attorney Ali is very compassionate and understands the needs of the client. She knows divorce law and knows the length of time it will take to settle the case. On a scale of 1 to 10 she is a 10. That's why she is the "Best of the Best". Thank you Attorney Ali!!

Extremely knowledgeable about International Divorce Cases
I am extremely satisfied with Ms. Zara Ali’s knowledge especially about international divorce law proceedings and professional ethics. Mine was between US and India and she handled the case extremely well and I was blessed with a divorce in my favor by the honorable Judge in less than 20 minutes of the trial. Ms. Zara did her homework well. She was confident and to the point with the Judge and got me exactly what I wanted in my case. She is highly recommended!

Strongly Recommend!
Zara helped us with an immigration application. We found her to be very professional. She was sincere about what she could assist us with and what was outside her (legal) control, and ultimately she delivered. Zara was easily accessible and responded promptly to questions/concerns. I strongly recommend her!

Great experience
Hiring a lawyer is difficult. There are so many out there to choose from. I was lucky and found a diamond in the rough with Zara. She made this experience very simple. She walked us through the process, was very patient with errors I made along the way, and answered my emails quickly and thoroughly. Thank you Zara for all your help.
