Phenomenal Attorney & Legal Partner
Robert is a phenomenal attorney and legal advisor. I’ve been working with Robert on a complex contract dispute in which I was defrauded for several months now - Robert has been exemplary not only in his work product and representation, but even more, I appreciate his honesty, willingness to help and be a true legal partner/advisor, and how he is straight forward with me even if it means a cut to his bottom line. Robert does not nickel and dime and his pricing is transparent and extremely fair. I could not recommend Robert highly enough. He will give his 100% to you.

Retooling Contract for California
This true gentleman constantly impressed us with his understanding of and passion for the law. We consulted with him in reference to independent contractors with whom we do business. Accordingly, we hired Mr. Rafii to retool our contracts for compliance with the newest California laws. He educated us very patiently and made sure we understood everything. There was much to learn, but the entire process was highly satisfactory.

Energized Our Startup
Robert, thanks for helping us with our legal papers. Our seed investment rounds proceeded beautifully. This is now the third time you've pulled through for us. I should have left this review earlier but we were pressed for time. We keep you in our good graces because you're a good man.

Saved my family during Covid
I had a large sum of money sitting in escrow for a real estate purchase right as the coronavirus hit us badly. Robert was able to negotiate the return of my escrow deposit despite their original unwillingness to allow me to get out of the transaction. The money allowed us to stay afloat during the worst of the pandemic. Thank you Robert--you saved my family.

The best lawyer
We hired Robert to help us against our previous property manager. It was a small case compared to the other case he would normally take. Surprisingly, Robert takes our case very seriously and responsibly. The case was solved in a very short of period and It was the right choice of me to hire Robert as my attorney.

Very Satisfied
Robert is trustworthy and quick to respond to inquiries. He made himself available for an initial consultation at no charge and proceeded to advise me beyond what I expected. I hired Robert almost immediately thereafter and I wasn't disappointed. I am particularly impressed by how quickly he is able to read, explain, and suggest edits to a complex contract. His mastery of the law and passion for words is up to par with what I have come to expect from a great attorney. I am a satisfied client by all measures.

Robert is an excellent and trusted resource...
This is not my first time working with lawyers, but definitely my first time working with one where I feel compelled enough to leave a review. Robert is definitely a good contact to have. I felt like he wholeheartedly listened to me, he is both compassionate and aggressive, with a sharp sense of timing, forthright but also kind. I found Robert online and very soon after he helped me fix a problem that I'm sure many freelancers get into. Contracts are important!

Very Satisfied
We hired Robert for advice on some construction work out in San Francisco. He was able to help us on short notice. I was surprised with his extent of knowledge regarding the CSLB and the DRE, but when I learned he holds multiple licenses, it made sense that he would know so much. Our company staff were equally impressed with Mr. Rafii and we will be continuing to defer to his wisdom for our legal needs. As a side note, it was also wonderfully refreshing to see such a young man be so humble, methodical, and well-mannered. Politeness goes a long way in this day and age...

Very Competent and Honest
I worked with Robert Rafii in two separate cases. He helped me in a difficult eviction in CA/Los Angeles and in a mediation of a real estate case. Robert represent me in a very professional and effective way and he advised me the best strategy the all time. He was very responsive with all my communications and very often after normal working hours. Robert put passion in his profession and he really takes care of his customer. I was also surprised by the level of competence he showed in different matters and it was a pleasure to work with him. I will definitely keep him in my network and I will strongly recommend him to other people.

Very good lawyer
Robert is a very good lawyer. He is very responsive to phone calls, emails, and even texts. He gave me multiple free consultations without asking for a fee and took the time to understand my case before I hired him. Subsequently Robert drafted a contract that worked perfectly for our purposes. We are very happy with the results.

I recommend Mr. Rafii
Mr. Rafii responded to my emails and questions quickly and updated me if he couldn't respond right away. It was only a consultation, so I don't know how he is in a courtroom, but I was pleased with his thoroughness and his assistance on my legal matter.

A lawyer whom I could depend on and have faith in
This young lawyer renewed my trust in lawyers and was a very professional. He was very good listener and paid attention to my case and was very honest with me. He did not use some legal jargon to impress and confuse me. He was an honest man who happened to be a lawyer, it was refreshing and comforting. After all I was impressed with his results and very happy.

Contracts and agreements Attorney | May 05
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I litigated against Robert Rafii and I must say that I have never seen an attorney that matched my intensity in fighting for his client. Over the course of the two months in which we were representing our respective clients, no days or hours were off limits. We regularly exchanged emails and phone calls on nights and weekends. Attorneys representing defendants normally bill hourly, and it is very common to see such attorneys extending litigation for longer than necessary in order to bill their client excessive hours. Not Robert. We got a case that could have easily taken two years to resolve in two months. The settlement we achieved was very fair for all parties involved. We had our disagreements at times, but we did not let that adversely affect our clients. Thanks for the professionalism, I wish you the best of luck."
