Excellent and Talented Lawyer
I am so grateful for my "total experience" with Meenoo and I couldn't be happier with the result. She handled my case and won. She made the process seamless. She was also very caring, helpful, and a good listener. She made me feel confident that she will do her utmost, and in turn I felt so good knowing I had her on my side. She displayed an outstanding work ethic throughout the process. She was patient with me and supporting me through this difficult time in my life. Meenoo took care of everything and answered all my questions. She had the knowledge for the issue at hand, and was absolutely pleasant to work with. She communicated frequently with me to let me know where we are in the process. I just wrote this to thank her for the outstanding job she did on my case. If you're looking for a lawyer that treats its clients with the upmost respect and care for them like family, and is super talented then I highly recommend her.

Excellent Discrimination Attorney
Ms. Chahbazi is an absolutely incredible attorney! Meenoo is kind, compassionate, professional, and truly cares about her clients. When I retained her as my counsel, she made sure to keep me in the loop every step of the way. She was incredibly accessible, responsive, and had a way of explaining the process so it made sense to me. It was very obvious that Meenoo cared more about me and getting a positive outcome for me much more than making money for herself. She has the upmost integrity and work ethic. If you are ever in need of a wrongful termination or discrimination attorney, hire Ms. Chahbazi and trust her sincerely. She will not steer you in the wrong direction.

Thorough & Got Results!
Meenoo unearthed every detail of my situation during our first phone. From the questions she asked you could tell that she really cared to get the full story and do her best to represent me. She figuratively held my hand every step of the process, explaining what was meant by this and that and she made sure that I was ok to proceed at each juncture. She not only negotiated better terms for my agreement but she gained the good opinion of the opposing attorney when all was said and done. Meenoo has impeccable finesse and intelligence that smoothly allow her to win cases for her clients. Thank You, Meenoo!

Wrongful Termination
I consulted with Meenoo regarding recent surprise termination by my employer. We discussed my available legal remedies. I highly recommend Meenoo for your labor disputes. I am greatly full for her knowledge and honesty.

Distinguished in Excellence, Compassionate and Caring
When in the depths of a legal dispute, Meenoo Chahbazi is one of the attorneys who represented me. Her unwavering support and diligent study of my situation made it obvious I was in capable hands, which gave me great comfort. Soon it was clear from her astute observations and creative recommendations that she was very familiar with the intricate details of my case. Ms. Chahbazi worked long and hard to bring my case to a successful conclusion; rating her at "5 Stars" would be an understatement. I hope to never be involved with litigation again, but if I am, Ms. Chahbazi will be my first contact for advice. Ms. Chahbazi has a steady demeanor and many stellar attributes that contribute to her excellence, including: 1. Compassionate and caring (she patiently explained complex processes/issues to facilitate my understanding). 2. Exceedingly intelligent (her credentials are impeccable). 3. Hardworking (she is extremely thorough in addressing considerations clearly and concisely). 4. Reliable (she dependably managed countless deadlines and documents). To anyone who requires legal representation, I wholeheartedly recommend Ms. Chahbazi.

Excellent service fighting my harassment case!
Meenoo has been nothing short of amazing at assisting and guiding me through this awful experience. She has been incredibly knowledgeable about everything I need to do, and more importantly, what I should not do! Her kind, gentle, calm demeanor keeps me sane and I trust her implicitly. Of all of the attorneys I could have ended up with, I am so grateful our stars aligned! She has been a blessing!

Super supportive & helpful!
I hired Meenoo to help me fight a wrongful termination case against a previous employer and from our first conversation to our last, Meenoo was more than helpful and supportive. She gave great advise and listened to my concerns, issues and thoughts throughout the case. Meenoo kept me very informed about all conversations with the other party and I truly believe she fought hard and advocated for me during this process. I would strongly recommend Meenoo to anyone looking for an attorney.

Excellent attorney, best in Phoenix AZ
Atty Chahbazi is the attorney you want to consult with no matter how confused and overwhelmed you feel about how to proceed with a work environment-related complaint. Over the past 15 years I have worked with 6 lawyers who helped me with different types of complaints. Chahbazi is not only the best of the five, she is also in an entirely different league. Meeting with lawyers can be stressful -- I asked myself every time: "I don't know what I am doing", "Is the lawyer trustworthy", "How could I possibly evaluate the information they share with me"...since I never studied law! When I worked with Atty Chahbazi on two occasions - in 2017 and 2019 on two different matters, all my concerns dissipated within the first 5 minutes of our conversations. She is extremely transparent and trustworthy. She educated me, and answered questions without making me feel ignorant. I found that Atty Chahbazi cares deeply about her clients--something I did not experience with not a single one of the other 6 lawyers I hired in the past. She pays close attention to the details I shared with-not knowing if they were even relevant! Instead of being dismissive about those details, she helped me organize my thoughts within the constraints of existing legal frameworks so that we could together discuss the pros and cons of any action we might pursue. After my two meetings with her, followed by email correspondence, I felt completely at peace and empowered by Atty Chahbazi. If you have any questions about where and how to start an employment-related case, Atty Chahbazi is the best lawyer anyone could hope for!! Look no further...

Patient and competent counsel
Meenoo represented me in a case that took nearly 4 years to close. She was completely forthright regarding the strengths and weaknesses of my case, and was equally honest and ethical at each step of the process. Meenoo saw a bigger picture than I did initially, and she was very patient with me. Meenoo developed a strategy, and prompted me for information that I would not have initially thought relevant. And that information proved important to achieving settlement. I believe the outcome we obtained was fair, which was my intent. I would have virtually no chance at a similar outcome without Meenoo's competent, patient, and persistent guidance. I sincerely hope I do not again need Meenoo's assistance, but if I do, I would not look elsewhere for counsel.

My personal recommendation of my attorney- Ms. Chahbazi
I enjoy writing the well-deserved 5 stars rating of Meenoo Chahbazi for her working as my attorney. As an example of her professional skills- I am well aware of my tendency to talk too much about my philosophical thoughts on many topics. Ms. Chahbazi was very courteous so brought me back to the important topics and we made good progress with each meeting. Her combination of being a friendly and supportive person made it easier for me to benefit from her advice and suggestions as an outstanding attorney. The difficult and frustrating time in my professional life was quite successively resolved without any need of my making hostile challenges or litigation. I was fortunate to have been told by another attorney that Robaina and Kresin had several attorneys whom he was confident would be appropriate for my particular circumstances. I have recommended Ms. Chahbazi services to a friend of mine and will continue to do so. Stanley Williams

Honest, hard working, and successful
I hired Meenoo and her legal team at Robaina and Krespin when I was retaliated against for a medical condition. We settled out of court and I am not at liberty to say who my employer was. I can say that it is one of the largest employers in the country and has a history of doing similar things to others and getting away with them. They didn't get away with it in my case. Meenoo was honest and upfront from the very beginning. She let me know how much time and energy I was getting into. She fully explained my financial options and was crystal clear about the range I could expect if I won the case. I didn't go in thinking I was going to walk away a millionaire as so many people thought when they heard my case. This is simply not the reality of going up against a huge company with so many lawyers on their team. She stayed with me every step of the way and even consulted her colleagues when my matter went into gray areas of FMLA, ADA, and harassment. She made sure my case was airtight. I ended up winning at the high end of the range she estimated. We settled out of court in a mediation.

Great employment discrimination lawyer!
Meenoo was very pleasant to work with. She was very thorough and always got back to me quickly with answers to my questions. She stayed in communication with me throughout the entire process. I was never left wondering what was happening with my case. I always felt that I was in the loop of what was going on, which made me feel more comfortable. Due to my specific health issues, I need someone who is willing to take time explaining things, Meenoo was very patient and made the process as painless for me as she could. I would definitely recommend her to friends and anyone needing her area of expertise. She is very good at helping an individual weigh the pros and cons of starting litigation. There are many costs involved, not just the apparent ones. I feel that she is a very well-rounded and ethical attorney that will put your interests first. Highly recommend.

Great Representation!!!
First of all, Meenoo Chahbazi handled my Civil Rights - Sexual Harassment case with only 48 hours notice. She gathered all of the necessary information in the consultation meeting. She's a professional that cares and will fight your rights. A honest and intelligent individual and very worthy of her profession.
