Execution is everything! The best of the best!!!
There was a time in my life where I thought by performing above and beyond could cost me my job, because all of a sudden the company I worked for would not honor FMLA let alone ADA. I tried on my own for many months and I was beyond exhausted, because I knew what my rights were. My employer also left me in a limbo where I couldn't return to work but I couldn't collect county benefits because I still employed. Months of depression and anxiety turned into hope and happiness when Navid took the time out of his day to provide a consult. He told me he could help me and oh boy did he help. I gave Navid as much details as I could, all communications, doctors notes, anything I could think of for him to look at what I had and gone through, clearly discrimination was an issue. The employer couldn't get out of this one after Navid discovered how the employer behaved when it came to employees with disabilities. Although the employer we went after claimed I did everything wrong, in the end they didn't have a leg to stand on. Navid knew exactly what to do, and the way he executed made me very excited and happy to have hired his firm. I was kept in the loop of everything, his professionalism didn't go unnoticed, at the same time I learned a little more about Employment / Labor law. Navid and his firm are rockstars!! I'd definetley retain his firm should I go through a similar situation again.

Damn Good Lawyer
Navid changed my life! He's rational, assertive, proactive, knowledgeable and empathetic. He went above and beyond for me and I'm so blessed to have been referred to him. I do not think I would have gotten the same results from another law firm. Navid thank you again and I wish you the best!

Excellent Employment Attorney
I consulted with Mr. Yadegar regarding my situation with my employer when I returned from disability leave. He was highly knowledgeable and very supportive in helping me navigate this stressful situation and in explaining to me what my rights were. I would highly recommend him for anyone who has experienced discrimination and potential loss of employment as a result of a disability leave.

Proficient, Knowledgeable, Professional, and Caring
I have been a client of Navid Yadegar for many many years. He has helped me with multiple cases and he goes above and beyond every single time. He is straight forward and tells you what to expect. He is very honest and has a lot of integrity. I feel at ease knowing that I have him in my side. He has also helped look for a lawyer when he felt that my case would be better handled by another attorney. I trust him and I hope to work with him for many more years to come. Thank you Navid Yadegar for being so good at what you do!

Highly recommended
I met with many lawyers about my case before I selected Mr. Yadegar to represent me. Mr. Yadegar is not only knowledgeable about his area of practice but he is the most caring, empathetic, and he explains everything in a client friendly manner. This lawsuit was very emotionally draining on me and my entire family. But, Mr. Yadegar empathically listened and he was very patient with me. I relied on his expertise and confidence to successfully settle my case. I am so happy with my choice of lawyer and I highly recommend Mr. Yadegar for any employment, labor, and litigation cases. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for fighting for me and believing in my case.

So happy I found this site
I found Navid Yadegar on this site and hired him because I was terminated from my job after a series of events that occurred between me and my boss (i won't get into details but in the lines of sexual harassment). I had worked at the company for 5 years and Navid was able to get me a settlement I was more than happy with. I would recommend him.

Call Navid if you want your case handled perfectly
I hired Navid about one year ago in a sexual harassment claim. Navid and his entire team were caring, kind, attentive and meticulous. They kept me informed every step of the way. They planned ahead, listened to me, and implemented strategies that left our opposing party in the dust. At the end, we got a great result. But, I don't write this review because of the result. I write it because the process was smooth and transparent. I thank you and your team for the hard work.

Most caring attorney in this city
Today I had the chance to work with Navid for the first time. What an amazing lawyer, so articulate, so caring and so informative. He answered all my questions, he was patient and he taught me so much. Not only I found a new friend, I found a caring attorney that I can refer to all my friends. Give this man a call, you will not be disappointed. Thanks Navid!

Great Lawyer and amazing person
I contacted Mr. Yadegar a little over a year ago in regard to a wrongful termination case that I needed legal assistance with. Not only was Mr. Yadegar very professional, but he was approachable and also he knew what he was talking about. I didn't know anything about the legal process behind law suits or legal action against one's employer nor did I really look forward to engaging in this type of issue due to the stress involved. Mr. Yadegar not only explained the process, but he reassured me and really made the whole thing stress free during the time he worked on my case. Mr. Yadegar is incredibly knowledgeable in regards to law, he is very personable and comforting during stressful situations and he is the kind of person who cares about his clients. Words cannot explain how much Mr. Yadegar cares about what he does and also about justice in regards to his clients and the cases he works on.. I had a very good experience with Mr. Yadegar and I would definitely recommend him as well as his firm to anyone who is in need of legal advice or action. His attention to detail and professionalism is something not many have. His law firm has friendly staff who are very attentive and hard working. Thank you Mr. Yadegar for all of your hard work during my case.

I highly recommend him to anyone who needs help. Thanks Navid. Nena.

The firm you need when your rights are violated
Retaliation can be difficult to prove but not when you have Navid and Navid as your lawyers. My employer hired a reputable national firm yet they did not win. The team works together perfectly well. Very professional, very knowledgeable, kept me updated and explain all available options. Highly recommended and thank you for what you do.

The firm you need when you are miss treated
Excellent firm. Guided me through the process. Communicated and updated me on a regular basis. They paid attention to minor details and was very evident that they knew what they were doing. The multibillion dollars company I worked for hired one of the biggest firms in town yet they did not win. Thank you Navid and Navid and the firm for what you do.

I'm pleased to share my experience with Navid and his firm. Navid carries himself the highest level of professionalism and does everything in his power to be the best advocate for his clients. Although I'm not allowed to talk about my case here but all I can say is that Navid exceeded my expectations when he settled my case. Navid is a true super lawyer. I'm so grateful for his hard work and dedication. Thank you so much again, Navid!

Great Lawyer/Great Firm
I had an employment issue with my former employer. I consulted with a few lawyers but Navid was the only lawyer who personally took my call, didn’t give me the run around, and gave me some great advice. I ended up hiring Navid’s firm and they got me a great settlement. I highly recommend Navid and his firm.

My go to lawyer forever
I hired Mr. Yadegar to represent me in a very sensitive sexual harassment claim. My case was unusual in that I am a male being harassed by a female. Mr. Yadegar represented me beautifully. When my employer did not agree to our settlement terms, he started taking depositions. He is masterful. After a few depositions, my employer asked for a mediation where we settled the case.

Navid is by far one of the most organized and detail oriented attorneys I've ever had. I retained Navid to represent me in a business dispute. From the beginning, Navid had a solid strategy for my case, and was highly respectful and professional. He held my hand through my entire case, and helped me stay confident through his winning attitude. You cannot go wrong with him as your advocate.

A review to help those who Mr. Yadegar doesn't take on as clients
I just contacted Mr. Yadegar to explain my case to him. It has specific points and issues with it that makes it unique. I expressed to him what I was looking for and what I needed. Mr. Yadegar told me that he couldn't help me; however that I should continue looking on Avvo. He was quite polite and we parted ways. Lawyers are like doctors; they all have their specialties. Even within their specialty, it can break further out. This is the case with me. It doesn't mean that Mr. Yadegar was wrong for his thoughts. It's quite the opposite. You don't want a lawyer who says yes but performs like no. So remember that.
