Excellent Probate Attorney
Mr Moheban made a very scary and emotional time for me, an easy to navigate situation. He made sure to explain everything in terms that I could understand from our first meeting to the last. He clearly communicated what I should expect along with a realistic time line. He charged a fair price.

Life Saver
Vandad made the probate process easier and less burdensome for me. It was most helpful to have a professional like Vandad J Moheban prepare the legal documents, file those documents, and appear in court on my behalf. I could not have done this on my own. He was professional, courteous, patient and knowledgeable. From start to finish the process took less than a year and I am eternally grateful.

Office Manager
Where we come from, when hiring a contractor, an attorney or any person who is rendering a service, it’s always best to get several quotes. After interviewing Vandy Moheban, we chose him based upon his calm demeanor and professional work ethic. He listened to our case and was quick to start work. Vandy acknowledged the emotional stress which oozed out of our many conversations. He demonstrated throughout the process patience and determination and was diligent at presenting next steps in a detailed, time-framed outline. We highly recommend Vandy Moheban to anyone needing a probate attorney in the Los Angeles, California area. Real talk in Texas…

Personal Services
I greatly appreciate the help and service that Vandad offered to me. Vandad was able to help me arrange personal affairs in a very timely manner, while we were unable to meet in person. Matter of fact, I was in a different part of the state. Vandad scheduled a conference call with me, reviewed all the documents, and addressed any additional questions that I had. I would highly recommend Vandad for his services.

SO HAPPY I FOUND MR. MOHEBAN!!
I am so grateful to have found Mr. Moheban to help me with what I thought was going to be a simple case. All I have to say is you never know who will come out of the woodwork when you have to go to probate. Fortunately, Mr. Moheban had seen it all before and his calm demeanor in the face of unexpected twists and turns really helped put my mind at ease. I made sure to also do my trust with him afterwards to this won't ever happen again to my kids. I have already sent a number of friends to him and will continue to do so should the need arise for any of my loved one.

Best Decision I Ever Made
I was struggling to find help when my grandma passed away and did not have her affairs order. Mr. Moheban not only took my case, he only asked for $465.00 to start for the court fee and waited for the rest of his fees until the end of my case. I also really appreciated that I always dealt with him and was never pushed off to a paralegal or secretary. From beginning to end I was always dealing directly with him and that was so different from what I thought it would be like to have an attorney. He was there for me every step of the way. My case finished as he had told me it would and I would definitely return if I ever need his help again. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing a probate lawyer.

When a close relative recently passed away, I found myself in the unfortunate situation of having to look for an attorney. After interviewing a number of attorneys, I decided to go with Vandy (Vandad Moheban) and I am very happy with this decision. He was very easy to communicate with and always kept me up to date on my case, which took close to a year to come to a resolution. He made me feel very comfortable throughout the entire process because, unlike others I have spoken with, Mr. Moheban would give me a detailed explanation of what to expect during our initial and ongoing consultations. His honesty and transparency at the outset really helped ease my concerns as my case proceeded with the legal process. I could not be more happy with his help during this emotionally difficult time. Once again, Thank you for your help.

Best attorney I have ever worked with!
Vandad handled a contested will and probate for me. He was very knowledgeable about this area of law, and was an excellent negotiator. He also kept me well informed during the course of the matter, even explaining the legal process, and allowed me to assist with the letter writing and accounting matters. I was extremely happy with his work during a very difficult time and have referred others to him as the opportunity has arisen.

Calm, Kind, and Effective
My family and I had a wonderful experience with Vandad. He helped us sort out a outdated title transfer and set up a living trust. He won our trust right away with his calm professionalism. This process took approximately a year and a half as we brought it to him in a bit of a mess. Vandad put our mind at ease by helping us get organized and diligently taking care of everything while communicating brilliantly. We would absolutely use his services again and highly recommend him. Many thanks Vandad!

Vandad is the best
I have been delaying taking care of estate plan for years. What really gave me the nudge to take care of it was my family friend passing and they did not have their affairs in order. I let Vandad know all my concerns and my reason for needing my Trust and the rest of the docs done. Vandad explained every document to me and its importance. I know more than most about estate planning due to my profession (Financial Advisor) but even I was blown away by his knowledge. I have told everyone I know about how great the process was.

Efficient, Knowledgeable and Sincere
I learned about Vandad's services through my work EAP program. We met initially to discuss drafting a Living Trust, Health Directive and other documents. He was great at explaining what needed to be done, in what sequence and made it easy to understand. We finished work within a couple sessions. I would hire him again.

Incredibly efficient and knowledgeable
I had estate planning done, and all it took were a couple emails, one call, and 30 minutes to sign all the documents. I'll definitely be returning to him in the future for any needs he can help me with, and recommending him to my peers!

Great support for a contested will
I live on the East Coast and hired Mr. Moheban to represent me in a contested will situation in Los Angeles. He ultimately helped me to resolve the issue in a way that was most supportive of my goals and objectives. He was even able to work with the opposing attorney to resolve the situation without the cost (which would have been significant!) and headache of a court case. I appreciated his candor, his ability to clarify the points of law for me and his rapid response to all communications both from me and from the opposing attorney. He provided me with the situational awareness and confidence I needed to do the right thing in this situation and I'm grateful to him. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone who is in a similar situation and, although I certainly hope I never have to, if I needed similar representation in the future I wouldn't hesitate to call him.

The GO-TO Estate Planning & Probate Lawyer in Los Angeles
I've had the pleasure of working with Mr. Moheban and his staff and couldn't be happier. I needed help putting together a family trust & will and was referred to his firm from a close family friend. He thoroughly explained all the details and answered all the questions we had (and we had a lot!). It's difficult to find a reputable attorney who actually cares. I would highly recommend the Moheban Law Firm.
