Traumatizing is how I would describe the recent experience with my landlady. Our apartment building was full of mold and water damage, and this awful woman tried everything in her power to avoid fixing the problems, including attempting to evict tenants in multiple units. I, unfortunately, was one of these tenants. After constant harassment from The Landlady from Hell and a court date looming, I had to find a lawyer. I have never needed to hire a lawyer and had no idea where to find one who would be honest, competent, and ethical.
After reading reviews, I contacted Yousef. There was an urgency to the situation because the 60-day window where an unlawful detainer case is sealed was soon up and once that goes public (regardless of the outcome of the case), future landlords see "eviction" and run for the hills. So, it was really important for me to protect my name, as I am a renter who always pays on time and simply got stuck dealing with a vindictive landlady. After some emailing back and forth, Yousef called me that evening. He spoke with me at length, patiently answering the 372 questions I had and advising me on what to do...before I paid him a dime or signed a contract.
After hiring him, Yousef filed an ex parte Motion to Seal and successfully went before the judge to get the case sealed. He then at a later date represented me in the actual UD case. We went through a mediator and the landlady tried to pull some moves, but Yousef showed up like a boss and handled the situation. It was like having a friend stick up to the bully in school for you. The case was dismissed with prejudice.
Throughout the entire process, Yousef answered all of my emails and responded right away. I was thoroughly impressed and am forever grateful to him. This guy knows his stuff, he is professional, and he is not just out to fill his pockets. He is what law should be. A solid person and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

As the property management and real estate development needs of our company have increased over the last year, I've had the need to enlist the services of various eviction attorneys. In particular we’ve hired attorneys who specialize in the challenge of negotiating the voluntary vacancy of tenants from rent stabilized properties, who have violated the terms their lease terms.
I can state without equivocation that Yousef Monadjemi has been the most diligent and consistently effective at obtaining the exact results, which our company was seeking to achieve.
The careful and diligent management of the unlawful detainer process is a tricky matter from start to finish. These days, a landlord is often faced with the costly challenge of litigating an eviction before a jury, against of the many of the tenants rights law firms in Los Angeles, who aggressively pursue litigation in the hope of winning attorney fees judgments against property owners. Yousef has enabled my company to avoid such costly litigation and achieve the move-out of tenants.
In the instances where our company chose to pursue litigation in order to aggressively assert our rights in order to have an apartment returned to our possession, Yousef has litigated a groundbreaking case for us before one of the toughest courts in Los Angeles, and he has won.
When Yousef is handling a case for our company, phone calls are always returned, questions were always researched and answered and risk assessments of strategies were always presented in written format that was easy to understand. I recommend Yousef without hesitation. The work that he’s done for our company has been integral to our success in 2015.

We lived in an illegal dwelling were the landlord was trying to scare us into leaving . I gave yousef a call & the very next morning he returned my call . He's not like other attorneys who expect you to " make it quick " when your explaining your situation. He took his time to listen & understand my situation as well as a clarfying what our rights were as tenants. He gave us the confidence into not being bullied by our landlord. Any question or concern we had, he was quick to respond & as well as with any documents that were needed. Any decisions / settlements that had to be made, he made sure to ask for our opinions & then gave us his input . It's very clear that he looks out for the best interest of the client . I would most definitely hire him again .

I had an eviction case and have hired someone else already.
The case got complicated and noticed that my initial attorney was not ready to continue with my case.
I hired Yousef and have nothing but the best experience. Yousef proved to be very professional, dedicated, responsive even late nights and weekends and practical as to what’s in the best interest of the client.
Yousef fees are reasonable and service beyond any expectations.
Yousef was a pleasure to work with. Good communication is vital when dealing with eviction or any type of litigation. I can't stress enough how responsive he is. He responds right away to all correspondence. We had many questions along the way and he knew exactly what to do.
I highly recommend and endorse this attorney without hesitation. He is intelligent, prepared, knowledgeable, and thorough.
He always kept me updated with the status of our case, always promptly responded to emails and phone calls, and delivered excellent results.
I would highly recommend him.

Very knowledgeable and respectable man. He won my eviction case and went out of his way on a personal level to assist me when I needed. I believe in every way he a reasonable and before all a rational attorney , he could be more aggressive in fighting for my civil suit, but that does not change the fact he is truelly a great lawyer. Thank you yousef, I do appreciate your help.
