after spending 2 years and $25,000 I ran out of money . Had to hire a lawyer as I was being dragged to court again for ridiculous charges . I hired attorney Cyrus prior to another forced court hearing having nothing to do with a settlement . He connected with the opposing parties associate attorney and cut a settlement before court but X refused . We went to court and the Judge knew immediately Atty Cyrus was well educated and his goal was getting a settlement and not wasting the courts time . The judge set mediation and in 30 days we were in mediation . The mediator was impressed with his knowledge and skills . He prepared me telling me we had to possibly do more then what we offer . 3 hours later and 60 days from the time I hired him we had a settle agreement signed with no spousal support and reasonable terms . I have more the 30 years experience in business and have to say he is one of the best tell me like it is lawyer I have met . He will not paint a ridiculous picture of how you can win or ask for any of the forensic accounting ,specialist business ,appraisers etc the $390 /hr lawyers will tell you have to have . I can not say enough about his knowledge of the lawy, the judges, courts ,honesty and sincerest in getting the job done .

A lighthouse in stormy seas
Cyrus represented my family in a difficult lawsuit. His expertise and sound judgement helped us see a clear path to resolving the lawsuit when emotions were running high. Cyrus is kind and patient, but knows when and how to strategically turn up the heat on the opposing party, without loosing his cool. Smart work, strategic actions, and sensitive to all situations.

Compassionate, Knowledgeable, Highly professional
In a very challenging case with my homeowner's association Attorney Cyrus Lam was of great support. Not only did he provide me with excellent guidance through the process of deciding what action would serve me best, he was highly compassionate, and highly knowledgeable about the unique nuances of my case. I could not have asked for a better attorney or for a better solution to my situation. I look forward to working with him again in the future on other legal matters.

Unknown Attorney | May 08
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Cyrus has an aptitude for out of the box thinking and has an understanding of his clients' situation that makes him stand out from the thousands of other attorneys here in California. He pays close attention to what you say during consultation sessions and truly connects with those that he interacts with. In other words, he doesn't just provide legal services to his clients and colleagues, he also makes sure that the experience of retaining legal counsel is a positive one. Cyrus and I met through Phi Alpha Delta and he has helped to guide me in my career in anyway he can. If there is anyone I would recommend to provide a positive experience as legal counsel or as a mentor it would be him."

Cyrus was always gracious with his time and had tremendous insight into the law that my friends and I always found valuable. I know that as a lawyer Cyrus works hard for his clients, charges fair rates and remains always available to answer inquiries. I strongly recommend Cyrus to anyone who is in need of a good attorney."

Immigration Attorney | May 26
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer's work. As a trust attorney I understand the importance of legal specialization and know that finding appropriate representation is a difficult task. That is why I am happy to endorse Cyrus Lam for his comprehensive experience in immigration and business law. Often times in my practice I have to represent fiduciaries in complex trust matters involving foreign beneficiaries and international property interests. These complex issues include difficult tax withholding problems and corporate entities and when these issues arise, I always rely on Mr. Lam's legal advice. I also find that Mr. Lam’s expertise along with his humble and conscientious disposition especially beneficial when dealing with high-wealth referrals requesting family-reunification and other immigration services."
