Robin Mashal is the best Real Estate law attorney I have ever worked with. From our first meeting, he explained everything to me in terms I could easily understand and was always very responsive when I had questions. If anyone is looking for a knowledgeable attorney, need to go to Robin.

Ethically honorable.
Time was of the essence when I approached him and Although he was very knowledgeable, Under my circumstances I needed two lawyers in two different areas of the law to represent me. He directed me until I found the adequate attorneys to present my case., he felt that someone in that particular area should represent me and he worked hard to help me find the right attorney and simultaneously he made sure that all filings were on time till the new attorneys took over the case. He only charged me a fraction of what he deserved as he knew my circumstances. May god bless him in all as he is the most caring and honorable person I have met in my life.

Robin is a great attorney who is a man of great integrity and diligence!
We had a rather complicated contract to become a debt purchaser of a real estate development and Robin was suggested as a great attorney. Robin went beyond the call of duty to answer every question no matter how small. Robin crossed every t and dotted every i in this complex contractual agreement. Above all he is a man of integrity and diligence in every area who will do what he says and say what he will do in a timely manner. Joseph, Sarah & Ann Blanchard (brother & sisters) highly recommend him for any legal matter.

Great Service
I was in the process of purchasing a franchise and wanted to have the paperwork looked over by a lawyer. My CPA recommended Robin Mashal. Robin did a great job with the review and revision of the transaction documents, and also caught some inaccurate statements by the sellers. I would recommend him to anyone needing a business attorney.

Professionals with great results
Robin Mashal is a very professional , top notched atty. He took on my 3 brothers full of hate towards me. I was 1/4 owner of a house and they made decisions without me and charged me bogus money. Robin took them on and beat them. He forced the sale of the house and I got rop dollar when they teied to screw me. Robin was forced to play hardball and boy did he. I would hands down use him again, I strongly recommend him for his professionalisim and he gets results.

Professional, ethical & honest - Thank you
Dealing with Robin has been nothing short of amazing. When it was time to sell my private stock in a company I was referred to Robin. He guided me with all the requirements and pitfalls, drafted and executed the agreements to make sure I was covered on all ends. He is prompt, direct and always finds ways to reach amicable solutions while still being firm on terms to be protected. It was a pleasure dealing with Robin, without any doubt or hesitation I would highly recommend him when it comes to your business matters.

Honest sharp negotiator
Hired him for what the City of LA refused to negotiate about. Not just he won the case, he was professional and did everything according to the books. If you are looking for someone who cheats and lies, he is not the one for you. But if you want an honest negotiator who does not take no, he is your attorney!

Knowledgable and diligent lawyer

he will fight passionately for you
about 3 and a half years ago i needed a biz attorney to get me out of an escrow from a deal that was headed south 3 days after signing the documents. initially the deal did look good and on the third day after signing the escrow papers i felt like making a random visit to the facility and i "caught" the seller and the whole operations off guard. i immediately decided to contact the broker and escrow officer to get me out of the deal but the broker was frustrated with me with my endless questions from the get go and the escrow officer was uncooperative. i guess life would have been much easier for the escrow officer if she could pin it on me the escrow went to flames but that would mean i lose the original initial deposit (at least half). unable to find an amicable solution i figured i needed an attorney. i never hired robin before this matter not i've heard about him so i initially had my doubts. but oh boy i was in for a pleasant surprise (to some extent "shocked" in an awesome and good way). robin is one of the most professional people i've ever worked with in this world (this is not an exaggeration, and i've worked with many people from many different countries and cultures). he got me out of the deal in addition of stopping the escrow officer from threatening me to terminate the escrow (and keep the initial deposit) on grounds of my "business inexperience." heck! he will even return part whatever is left of the initial payment of the retainer along with an itemized of the amount of work done on your case (in 15 minute intervals). your trust (and money) are in very good hands with robin mashal! btw you will really appreciate the subtle ways he handles himself, business with you, and with the opposing party (testimony from escrow officer).

Robin Mashal
We retained the services of Mr. Robin Mashal when a client had taken possession of our products and was not responsive to requests for payment. Mr. Mashal took over for us and was able to proceed in a manner that the client satisfied our bill in full. During the process we were very confident in Mr. Mashal as he kept us informed about the steps involved and what we could expect. We highly recommend Mr. Mashal Sincerely, Shervin Khodadadi
