DEDICATED ADVOCACY FOR YOU & YOUR FAMILY

I discovered early on that I had a passion for helping people. As an immigrant to the U.S., I quickly learned that helping others through mediation was one of my strengths. The field of law was one way I could help others and make an impact on their lives and their futures in a positive way.

My experiences working at The Legal Aid Society of Orange County cemented the fact that I wanted to work with individuals going through difficult experiences such as divorce. When working on a family law case, my goal is to always resolve it through mediation instead of unnecessary litigation. I remain sensitive to the fact that I am dealing with many adult lives as well their children’s lives and strives to bring about a positive, peaceful resolution.

With extensive experience in mediation, research, litigation, and collaborative law, (over 200 cases), I am prepared to assist with any family matter you are facing. In addition to working in private practice, I have also worked as a court-appointed mediator for Honorable Judge Slawson and Hon. Judge Harvey Silberman.

Mr. Hayatdavoodi is your attorney. Call him today.
Working with Mr. Hayatdavoodi has been a huge mind ease. I was looking for an attorney to help me with the process of drafting an agreement and see it through execution. I must say that the work ethics of Mr. Hayatdavoodi and his office has been by far a top-notch service a client could ask for. I initiated the first phone call over a weekend and I was impressed by his knowledge of family law and the sense of urgency and enthusiasm that Mr. Hayatdavoodi gives to his clients. His level of professionalism and delicacy of handling your case is immaculate and exceptional. I highly recommend Mr. Arsalan Hayatdavoodi's professional services. Make that call today and you will be happy with your choice.

One of the best family law attorneys
Arsalan helped me with my divorce. He is one of the best lawyers around. He made the process so simple and smooth for me. He was also very attentive and would respond to me quickly when I had any questions. His rates are also very fair and the best I found from my research. I would definitely refer him to others. Thank you Arsalan!
