In 2013 I came to Varzandeh Houman Law Offices for consultation. During consultation I was told that I need to hire Mr. Alan Fenster to vacate 2005 I was guilty.
I made appointment with Mr. Alan Fenster and came in for consultation. On my appointment I felt he was not pleasant person to deal with but I had no choice since at the office of Varzandeh I was told he was the only attorney who can help me. So i hired Mr. Fenster and paid $ 7000.00.
Mr. Alan Fenster said he will vacate process of my case in few months, when I asked him what is few months he raised his voice and repeated I said few months .
in the results, He worked on my case 22 months. I had to plea guilty to a different charge, which now on my record as 2014 case. The case was not handled with care, with a small mistake he made and not make it clear that is was 2005 case, now I m Immigration court on removal proceedings and my Green card was taken away from me.
I contacted Mr. Fenster trying to explain my situation, his response was not to call him about this case again

After meeting and contacting many lawyers in New York, Washington, and LA I found a right and best one. Choosing Mr.Varzandeh as my lawyer was the best decision I ever made in my life. His knowledge, confidence, enthusiasm and honesty makes him unique. He has a professional team which they were always available to assist me anytime I had questions and inquiries. I highly recommend Mr.Varzandeh Anderson's law office for immigration issues.
Dear Houman and Lisa, thank you so much for all your positive energies and supports.

It was fortunate to find Mr. Varzandeh through a referral by a friend and be able to get a tremendous help by working with him. He is extremely knowledgeable, refreshingly honest, and very generous with his time providing the best advice every step away. His compassionate approach to advocate for his clients is remarkable. I am very grateful for his help and wholeheartedly recommend him for any legal advice regarding immigration issues.

I highly endorse attorney Houman Varzandeh. His expertise in the field of US immigration law is second to none. He is particularly skilled in the practice area of deportation and removal issues. His prior experience as an immigration court trial attorney has given him a special insight into how the deportation process works and the best strategies for deportation and removal defense. Furthermore, he is ethical, honest and truly cares about his clients.
Relationship: Worked for lawyer
I have had the pleasure of working alongside Mr. Varzandeh for the past decade. His mastery of the law and his ability to precisely analyze complex legal issues is extraordinary. He represents his clients with candor, integrity, and is viewed by opposing counsel as a force to reckoned with. I have never seen him lose a case, but I have witnessed him win countless cases that appeared to be losing cases. Mr. Varzandeh is an immigration attorney of the highest order.
