Mr. Stephen Vokshori graduated Magna Cum Laude from USC’s Marshall School of Business and elected to attend the UCLA School of Law for his Juris Doctor.  While in UCLA’s Business Law and Policy Program, he exhibited academic excellence in Real Estate, Corporate, and Finance law, and became a recipient of the Stephen E. Claman Scholarship.

Mr. Vokshori’s work experience has included being managing partner at Taylor & Vokshori, a prominent real estate law firm, in-house legal counsel for a sizeable commercial and residential real estate company, litigation consultant with Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, and litigation associate at Demler Armstrong & Rowland.

As Managing Attorney of Vokshori Law Group, Mr. Vokshori utilizes his unique background in law, accounting, finance, and business when encountering complex real estate transactions, bankruptcy litigation, or business planning in anticipating and formulating solutions for his clients.  He brings a strategic perspective to his work that enables clients to understand the issues they face in new ways.  All the while, Mr. Vokshori understands that clients want to be kept apprised of their case and he makes time to personally meet with them and provide frequent status reports.

Mr. Vokshori represents clients in all facets of bankruptcy proceedings and litigation, as well as insolvency issues in business transactions, and he represents debtors and secured lenders in their in- and out-of-court restructurings.  He also represents distressed homeowners who have been victimized by the proliferation of sub-prime and predatory lending as well as those who have witnessed double-digit percentage declines in property values which has stripped the equity out of their homes.

Mr. Vokshori regularly advises business owners and entrepreneurs in all of their business transactions including matters relating to business planning and growth, and provides advice and legal services at all stages including startup, business expansion, transition planning and execution.  He has wide-ranging experience in all aspects of commercial and residential real estate.  He is also experienced in estate planning and trust administration, including business succession planning for family and other closely held enterprises.

Mr. Vokshori understands the importance of community service and regularly devotes significant time to delivering needed pro bono legal assistance.  Throughout his legal career, he has volunteered his services to individuals fighting against corporate and state powers.  Volunteering with Public Counsel’s general relief advocacy program, Mr. Vokshori argued to protect the rights of people in the welfare system that were homeless or at risk of becoming so.  Mr. Vokshori also provided free legal assistance to UCLA students through UCLA’s Student Legal Services program, counseling students on a wide variety of legal issues.

Currently, Mr. Vokshori spends his free time assisting low-income tenants fight against illegal evictions and unlawful detainer actions – a troubling corollary of the subprime mortgage foreclosure crisis.  He also dedicates time to volunteer at Public Counsel's Consumer Law and Debtor Assistance Projects in providing advice and counsel to debtors that are filing for bankruptcy without an attorney.

Co worker Sara Arias
Just wanted to give a huge recommendation and appreciation for Sara Ariias help yesterday! She was absolutely wonderful, kind, efficient and professional in listening thoroughly, and getting back to me right away with the answers I was in need of. On top of it all I believe she was the only one in the office managing three positions? And yet she had such a beautiful disposition in her professionalism getting things done! I so wish that we all can take lessons because the work ethics and the service that is now displayed in the workplace is not evident very much these days. So I just thought I would take a brief moment and hope that we can all remind one another when we do in excellent job that it is very appreciated and very rare! Thank you again!

Handles Business.
******** has been an excellent organization to handle my representation in real estate matters. When it comes to legal and other professional processes, I was very much unaware of how to conduct such practices and I definitely needed help with my disputes. ******* and his team were courteous and respectful and were very patient with my understanding of these processes. I am tremendously grateful for their professionalism and expertise.

Approved Loan Modification !! I am very please with the legal services I received from VOKSHORI LAW GROUP on my mortgage modification. The first thing they did was encouraged me to go and do my homework on their background at Better Business Bureau and other rating sites like Yelp etc. I did and never found anything negative out there that I didn't like and now that I have worked with them I can understand why. These are the people you want on your side when you are in a bad situation and need an attorney. They didn't just tell me a bunch of crap like some of he others I called did. I had tried to do my loan modification twice myself and was turned down both times. I worked mostly with Nadia Sommereyns when I hired the Law Group and she was very professional, friendly, helpful and thorough. When Nadia first started working on my case she immediately put my mind at ease because I could tell she knew what she was doing when it comes to mortgage modifications. There is a lot of schemers out there doing modifications but these guys are not the ones they seem to thrive off of reputation and it speaks for itself. Bob, Sacramento, California

Foreclosure/modification
Vokshori Law Group was excellent to work with while we were in foreclosure. I contacted them by phone and they were polite and friendly and made me feel like there was hope! I worked closely with Nadia Sommereyns, a senior legal analyst and she was amazing! She helped me through each step of the process and kept in touch with me about everything that was communicated with my bank! The stress was off of my shoulders! They negotiated a modification with my bank and the new payment is reduced significantly and has allowed us to start getting back on our feet and re-establishing our credit! Nadia and the Vokshori Law Group are amazing, professional and kind and helped us through an extremely difficult time in our lives! I would recommend them to anyone in need of their expertise!!!

Thank you for your help.
I contacted Volkshori Law on behalf of my wife and me, because our home was in foreclosure. The house was originally bought by her father, so he would be close to us in his retirement years. Then he decided not to live there, so we were asked to move there instead and make the mortgage payments this we did. My father-in-law initiated a quick claim deed with my wife’s name on it, so if anything happened to him we would have a home. But then after dealing with his health problems and me losing my job, we got behind on payments. Then her father passed away and we got into real trouble financially, and the house went into Foreclosure. That is when I contacted Volkshori Law. We were first contacted by Nadia Sommereyns, Sr. Legal Analyst, she communicated to use that we were in fact eligible for the Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP) setup by the U.S. Government to home owners in lowering their mortgage payments. She was very helpful and understanding. She walked us through what to expect and reassured use that everything would be ok, which really help relieve a lot of our stress and worries. We were to just leave it in her hands, she would contact the mortgage company and take care of everything and she did. One year later we received the new loan docs through our mortgage company, which was Wells Fargo, and if anyone has ever had to deal with Wells Fargo they know what a real pain they can be. The house is now ours with a monthly savings of approximately $400 dollars which includes an escrow account to pay for our property taxes and homeowners insurance. Volkshori Law has saved us from losing our house and home, so I highly recommend then if you are currently in foreclosure and need help.

A Truly Helpful Adviosr
I am a working mom with 2 young children. When I was desperate to survive, I became a victim of the mortgage scam ran by Liberty One Mortgage company in CA. Among all the law firms I contacted, this is the only one firm who didn't think their time is money. They responded my questions timely via phone calls and even spent time doing research and guiding me through and provided me with free sincere and helpful advise. It's true help, not sympathies (they even didn't know I am a single mom with financial difficulties. In fact from the beginning to the end, they even din't mention about money)

Loan modification
We are extremely thankful to the Vokshori Law group and their entire team. We had initiated the short sale process of our home when we contacted the firm. With their hard work and excellent follow up we finally obtained a permanent home modification. Nadia Sommereyns the senior legal analyst kept us informed every step of the way via phone calls and emails. Nadia was excellent and help us keep our sanity throughout the whole process. Thank you Vokshori Law Group!

Thank GOD for Vokshori Law Group
I can not express enough how grateful I am to Nadia Sommereyns and the entire Vokshori Law Group for my loan modification. During this nerve wrecking process, Nadia was very patient and kept me calm. She always made herself available if and when I had any questions or concerns. Now that my loan has been modified, I can get back on track. Thank you so for such a wonderful experience. I will definitely refer my friends and family. Adriana M.

Loan Modification
This firm treated me with royalty, even when my modification didn't get approved, they still refunded me over half the payment ($1,450.00), which they didn't have to do, they worked hard for me. I highly recommend this firm.

Home Preservation
Vokshori Law Group has been representing us while we fought with a bank to not loose our home. Now that we have been approved for a modification, we can satisfactorily state that because of their great representation, we now still own our home. It has been a pleasure to work with the Vokshori Law Group, we would not hesitate to hire them for any other legal need.

Thank You
The Vokshori Law group helped me accomplish my goal of modifying my mortgage to enable me to keep my home. I had a very frustrating experience trying to get my lender “B of A” to adjust my payments they kept changing my contacts so I was unable to successfully complete the process on my own. I was pleased with the service the Vokshori Law Group provided in securing my loan modification. Thank you Phil and Nadia for your help!

Retire in Peace!
I was referred to Vokshori Law Group through a friend, who previously worked with their firm and was very pleased about their service. I recently retired on a fixed income and my home was in foreclosure. The Vokshori Law Group not only helped me stay in my home but obtained an outstanding home modification loan in the process. They are a group of professional, knowledgeable, confident, and considerate staff. Nadia represented me on my case; she was very patient, and quick to respond to all my concerns. Outstanding job! Thank you Vokshori.
