Very knowledgeable and caring staff
I hired attorney Kohan to handle a complex legal situation, not only he resolved my case , he also put me on path to recover from the situation. He was always accessible and his staff was there for me.

Honest and Professional Laywer
I have to write this review for Mr. Kohan because my family and I were very happy with his service. He explained things to us, walked us through the whole process, and returned our phone calls promptly. We were impressed with his knowledge and his ethics as a lawyer. By far the best lawyer we ever worked with!

2014 Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Client
Let's face it, nobody wants to file bankruptcy. It's usually an indication that, at some point, and for some reason, plans went terribly awry. But what's worse than things not going according to plan? Having to face the facts that you you may have to file bankruptcy. This happened to me. After calling around to multiple law offices, I came across Navid. As mentioned by others, he answered the phone, which was a surprise to me, and proceeded to immediately assuage my angst and dismay regarding my unfortunate financial situation. He then informed me of multiple options over the phone (pro bono consultation), and allowed me to make the decision that best suited my desires (I will admit, I initially felt slightly pressed to make a decision). I ultimately decided that Chapter 7 was the best thing for me at this time, and honestly felt somewhat like a degenerate for having to file bankruptcy. Noticing this, he continuously (he had to do it multiple times because of my willingness to revisit those erroneous feelings) "talked me off the ledge" (metaphorically speaking), and assured me that it was in fact possible to restore, not only my credit, but my entire financial portfolio within a few months time with diligent personal prudence regarding my finances of course. He was present throughout every step. Providing ample instruction and information. Followed up consistently. And took numerous calls, emails, and texts from me without any showing of annoyance on his end. I'm thankful for Navid Kohan for helping me through this time, and recommend him to all who may have encountered a rough patch financially, and are searching for a viable, affordable, and expedient solution. Thanks Navid.

First Class Representation and Results, and VERY reasonable fees!
I have hired a number of attorneys in my life. I hired Navid Kohan after my divorce and a bankruptcy was required to help me through the transition. I will admit that Mr. Kohan's low fee's drew my initial attention. That being said , I received far more than I paid for! Mr. Kohan is a young attorney, however he has focused his practice and doesn't try to be all things to all people. He is very good at what he does, He is also a very effective researcher and is quick in answering questions. More importantly, all the answers he ever gave me were the correct ones. Navid was always available. Morning, Nights, Weekends, he was always there to take my call, or was quick with a return call or email. I can honestly report to you, the reader, that Mr. Kohan exceeded my expectations, and never disappointed me. One of the bright points of my bankruptcy was when Mr. Kohan showed me a legal way to eliminate the court ordered attorney fees that I owed my ex-wife's lawyer. It brings a smile to my face as I type it now. THANKS NAVID!!!! I highly recommend him as ab attorney.

A+++ Attorney
I would absolutely recommend Mr Kohan, he was extremely professional, kept me informed at all times, he was always reachable, there was never a time when I couldn't reach him. I will always refer to him should I ever need an attorney again. I felt that he genuinely cared, there was never a question he couldnt answer, his services are so great that ive been referring him to all my friends and family. I can't thank him enough for his service.

Did a BK chapter 7
He was very helpful and explained everything perfectly. It was my first time doing a bk and if I would have to do it again I will go to him. He tells you everything upfront and does not give false information.
