Posted by Randolf Martinez
I was in the process of renegotiating a child support order when I suddenly lost my job, and as a result potentially facing certain poverty. Fortunately Attorney Elena Mebtahi was sympathetic to my dilemma. Not only was Attorney Elena Mebtahi able to reduce my monthly child support obligation, but she was also able to persuade the county to reduce a majority of the arrears I owed.
Patience, knowledge, and professionaliam best describe Attorney Elena Mebtahi. If you seek the assistance of a Family Law attorney, look no further. Attorney Elena Mebtahi exhibits confidence and expertise in her field of law.

I had a complicated traffic ticket issue that surfaced over a year after the incident and under a different state license. It would have resulted close to $1000 in fines. Luckily Elena and her assistants handled the situation smoothly and effectively, without any effort from me. They are the best! I highly recommend Elena and her team!

My daughter's DUI & failure to appear, $5,000 Bench Warrant from 2005 was a dark shadow of her brief stay in So. Calif. Now living on the east coast, she wanted to get her life squared away and move forward.
I found Atty Elena on the AVVO site and after going through some of her client's reviews, did an initial consult after which, my daughter and I chose Elena as our legal counsel.
That was January 2016. three months later, Elena's associate, Randy was able to get the Bench Warrant squashed. However, the LA Airport judge was very unhappy that my daughter had not contacted the court for more than 10 years and ordered her to appear in-person May 8th.
With the Bench Warrant squashed, my daughter was able to get a driver's license so she could fly to LA. She asked if I'd come with her, of course I went with her.
Being in court that day and observing the preceding cases coming before the court, the judge was having an off day with so many people coming before her totally unprepared. By the time my daughter's case came up, the judge wanted to mandate a jail sentence of 10 days for every year the case had been open. Randy had a report with the LA City Atty and was able to get her sentence reduced to 45 days, with the notation that it was not very likely she;d serve the entire 45 days. There were promises though! she agreed and would surrender after the weekend.
My daughter, her uncle and I went with her early Monday morning. Atty Elena was there with a final attempt to negotiate a better deal. To no avail, the court reviewed the 45 day sentence and my daughter was whisked into custody after we hugged her good bye. The good part of this situation is that, when she's done, the case will be closed with no probation, fines, etc.
I returned to home to Wisconsin. Needless to say, the "Dad" aka me, was feeling really helpless even with the assurance of Atty Elena. After two days, May 12th (My birthday), I got a call from my daughter that she was out and to please call her uncle. Prayers answered!
I am very grateful to Atty's Elena and Randy for their professionalism and personal attention to my daughter's DUI case.
Thank you Ms Elena and Randy,

I am a real client who had a real problem. You see, I earn my living on the road, so protecting the integrity of my licence is very important to me. A ticket from my past, I had long forgotten, was brought to my attention, I was told, "you better get a good lawyer."
I did not know what to do. I started reading reviews online, sifted through a lot of rhetoric and focused on sound wisdom and professionalism. I came to the website of Ms Elena Mebtahi. After reading her website, I was thoroughly impressed with her credentials and track record. After our initial consultation I knew, "I had found a good lawyer."
Ms Elena Mebtahi listened to my dilema, came up with a strategy, and she and her entire staff went to work on my behalf. I hired Ms Elena Mebtahi immediatly, her cost was very affordable. After everything was said and done, I could almost use the word bargain, according to some of the stories I heard from others.
Ms Elena kept me informed each step of the way during my case. Her staff sent me information quickly when I requested it. I needed to delay the process at one point, Ms Elena graciously adjusted the procedings to meet my schedule. Ms Elena represented me at each hearing and I never missed a days work, I really liked that part. I was very grateful for the office staff patience with me in answering all my questions and their helpful explanations when I needed it.
Ms Elena and her staff made me feel like they really cared about me and my particular case and they were always available, professional and courteous during communications with me. As a matter of fact Ms Elena also gave me advise on something that she noticed on my record, and did not charge for me for that, now that is service above and beyond the call of duty!
I am very pleased with the price, professional treatment, and overall outcome of my experience with Ms Elena Mebtahi and her staff and that is why I am writing this review, I hope this helps others to make the choice that I did to put their legal problems in the hands of a real professional lawer who knows what she is doing and operates a real professional law firm with down to earth people that listened to me and helped me in a big way when my back was against the wall.
I am forever grateful to Ms Elena and her staff, I hope the best for you in the future, I recommend all my friends to this lawyer and will reach out to her in all my future needs should any arise.
My hats off to this law firm for removing a very dark cloud from my life and family without hurting my pocketbook.
Sincerely, and with heartfelt joy, Ms Elena Mebtahi, I say,

Is the greatest. She has represented me several times and does a great job every time. She takes command of the court room and takes over the court room. Men you do not want any other attorney. She got my child support dismissed. When was the last time you herd of a man getting his child support dismissed- never, not Elena she went to that court room and took over!! This last trial she was able to confirm me getting custody of my son and the tax benefits!! This attorney rocks!! I have never had a problem with her or her staff. They all have been very kind and professional to me. Those you that have written bad reviews you need to check your self and your responsibilities and expectations. I have never had a problem with Elena or her staff. Ask questions up front- she will answer them. This is a very, very good attorney. DO NOT GO ANYWHERE ELSE!!!

I hired Elena Mebtahi to help me on a child support case that had been lingering on for some time and was starting to take its toll on me emotionally. Elena gave me confidence in the days coming up to court and on the day of court, we succeeded as planned!
I highly recommend her!

I never had a family law attorney before, but as soon as I met Elena, she made me feel comfortable and assured me she would do everything in her power to help me. It was a rough battle, but with her hard work and determination, she was able to get me divorced. She made things go very smooth, especially when dealing in these kinds of matters. She was very attentive, strong-willed and knowledgeable in my divorce. I appreciate everything she has done for me in my case and cannot thank her enough. I will recommend Elena Mebtahi to anyone looking for legal advice in divorce matters.

I contact the firm and they took my case when other lawyers didn't want to touch the case. I had multiple traffic citations with FTA which caused my license to be suspended. They started by trying to get multiple extension one of them they couldn't without me paying. I was pulled over by CHP in a city 5 hours away from LA. Elena and her team quickly moved to help me get my license so i can get my car back after having it impounded. They got all my ticketed dismissed and got me my money back i had paid for one ticket (to get my license back ASAP). They communicate about a week after the court date. The process took about a year but that is just the court system. They were professional and communicated very well with me. They communicated via phone and e-mail in a very professional manner. I will look for Elena and her team for any assistance I might need in the future in Traffic, Personal Injury, Family or Criminal Law.
