The Best Person ! the Best Attorney !
I was introduced to Farinaz Cohen and other attorneys by my friends, I had to consult and get some answers about 2 years ago. I was very skeptical at first, after talking to so many people trying to get some answers for my problem, we all know how difficult to trust anyone these days, I will be very honest, somehow after just talking about my problem, I forgot that I was talking to a person I never met and I don’t know yet, but because I felt in her voice concern and care and very important a very pleasant person, my next question was when can we meet. She did help me and my family a lot, and now me and my family, we have the best Attorney, friend and someone we all trust with anything. I also would love to suggest, do not make any decisions before you talk to Farinaz, because you do not want to talk to just attorney, you must talk to someone how is a great person and very knowledgeable, just to begin with.

Passionate, Sharp, and Trustworthy
Trustworthy, sharp, and passionate. Those are the three words that initially come to mind when describing Farniaz's work ethic. She is quite ambitious and will go to all ends to get the job done. It is clear that she has found her calling as an attorney and she devotes all of her attention, mind, and heart to each case. Finding an attorney that you can trust with your personal matters is a gift. Farniaz is that lawyer. It was a pleasure to receive her direction and I look forward to working with her again.

I can highly recommend Farinaz Tojarieh!
I have never gone through anything quite as traumatic, emotional, and stressful as legal action; I was concerned about not only the lawsuit but the positive and negative outcomes. When I began working with Farinaz all questions an concerns were laid to rest. She was extremely knowledge and accessible; she was direct, honest, and a joy to work with. Farinaz is sharp, quick, and a trusted ally. I can significantly recommend her to any individual and/or team looking for a professional of the highest caliber. She's an ace!
