The court of Appeals, Fourth District, Division 2, California Held in part that: “We would agree with Carlton, if he had not filed the SAC.

State Bd. of Equalization (1954) 42 376, 384, 267 P.2d 257 [“It is well established that an amendatory pleading supersedes the original one, which ceases to perform any function as a pleading”].) C.–D.”; “DISPOSITION; “The award of discovery sanctions is reversed. In all other respects, the judgment is affirmed. The parties are to bear their own costs on appeal. We concur: RAMIREZ, P. J. KING, J.” Opinion of the Court of Appeals was Published.

I consulted Majid Foroozandeh on a credit card Hack by Wells Fargo Bank. I was only one of the many Wells Fargo abuse customers who had unauthorized advances taken from their credit card cash advance, transferred to their checking account ... allowing a tax agency to snatch a disputed tax claim. Majid was extremely helpful in giving me sage advise on how best to handle my case. With his good advise I was able to beat Wells Fargo on the initial suit ... WF appealed... then I again won the Wells Fargo's Appeal suit*** PS Majid is simply a great attorney and an equally Nice man to interact with . . . I highly recommend him and his firm.

Exceptionally Professional while Down-to-Earth Comfortable
I was in a dilemma with some renters in the private property that I help to manage. It was a very tricky situation with so many different variables that made it unclear as to the liabilities that were at stake as well as the proper way to go about protecting myself and whether I would need an attorney. After discussing the specifics of the situation, Majid very patiently explained what my situation meant as well as the best course of action to take. His response was very honest and above and beyond anything I could have expected. Majid even went as far as to help me draft the proper documentation to keep in line with all the laws and regulations and keep me protected. I am so indebted to his service and level of skill that I highly recommend him to anyone that may think they could use an attorney for any matter regarding tenant and landlord situations. I have already given his name to a number of individuals that are on the fence and even those that are well versed with the legal matters of property management. Again, I would like to put emphasis on his prompt, patient and knowledgeable skill in his profession and give my absolute reference to Majid as your attorney.

Real Immigration Expertise
I've collaborated with immigration lawyers all across the country. It's special to find someone who's extremely well-versed in this area of law and also passionate about immigration in general. Majid is thorough, kind, and meticulous, and this combination of traits hugely benefits his clients who are petitioning for visas. It is a pleasure to work with Majid. I have full confidence in his command of the intricacies of USCIS and would recommend him to anyone.

Brilliant Lawyer
I had a multi-million dollar civil lawsuit served against me and my former employer. My former employer would not talk to me, they just left me in the dark to deal with this situation alone. I tried other lawyers, but they would not take my case. I was depressed because I had a deadline to answer the lawsuit. Then I found Attorney Foroozandeh. And all of a sudden my situation changed. He saw the light in my case, and he made me see the silver lining behind it, and he made my former employer pay for my defense. He is a brilliant lawyer, and his team, most specially, Eugene saw the winning side of my case right away. Other lawyers didn’t seem to know what to do with my situation. Attorney Foroozandeh understood exactly what to do. He very confidently told me what he would do for me. And most importantly, he delivered. Attorney Foroozandeh, understood so well how I felt when I was faced with such a demise. He has that personal side of him that cheers you up in those times of difficulties.

A Caring Professional Lawyer you can Trust
I have nothing but the highest praise for Majid. In addition to possessing a thorough scholarly knowledge of the law, Majid shared his wisdom as well. He patiently and succinctly explained the law, all my options, and outlined a plan for me. He took time to teach and expand on my perspectives on the issue. Even though it was phone consultation, he never once sounded rushed. Majid listened with empathy and asked insightful clarifying questions. I felt he was truly looking out for my well-being over profit. I will be sure to come to Majid again for legal representation and assistance.

Very Helpful!
Majid was very generous with his law advice. The consultation was a great experience and the guidance given took care of the exact matter which brought me to the consultation. Out of all the 3 lawyers I saw, he was the one who finally gave me a clear path to take in regards to my case. Thank you!

Outstanding Legal Representation with Foroozandeh & Associates.!!
I have used Majid personally, and have referred about 10+ clients to him, a couple of clients for very large cases he took on. Majid, knows the law in massive detail...he is creative and went way beyond cookie cutter approach to my case(s) and the feedback I had from my referrals to him. He has made a huge difference for me, is fair in his billing hours ... I HIGHLY recommend Majid to handle your case. My case(s) and most of my referrals were business related...however, two were immigration related and he did a great job for solving their complex issues.

Compassionate and Understanding Firm
I want to thank the law offices of Foroozandeh for representing me in two separate cases over the course of the past two years. In both cases I received constant assurance that my legal matters were being handled swiftly and justly. I was reluctant to put my trust and faith into an outside source to resolve matters that appeared to be hopeless to me. It is with deep gratitude that I share my experience with this firm. It was almost immediately that I discovered my fears were unfounded. I was pleasantly surprised at the ease in which I was able to communicate my frustrations and concerns in our meetings and over the phone, each of which appeared to be processed with careful consideration and with utmost experience and knowledge. I was relieved to have found a law firm that provided guidance in an extremely professional, yet personable manner. I was quite a skeptic when it came to attorneys “in general”, because of the reputation portrayed by various individuals, who may, or may not have been as fortunate as I, in seeking assistance with their legal matters. I felt comfortable in expressing my thoughts and opinions, fears and concerns, whether or not they be justified. Your firm treated me with compassion and understanding and changed my perspective and outlook on life, in many areas. I hold much gratitude for the relationships that I attained with each individual whom I came to know in your office, and believe I emerged a better person because of the positive influence and my experience with your firm. When my cases came to a closure, I felt great relief. I will be forever grateful for the services provided by Law Offices of Foroozandeh.

Best Lawyer for me!
As a business owner, my time and attention to my business are of extreme value to me, and as a father of two young sons, my personal life is also very time consuming. So, as I was faced with a very difficult legal matter overseas, one of my clients referred me to Mr. foroozandeh. I was told by many folks with the similar legal problem that it would be a waste of time and money etc... So I had my reservations. Well, to simply put it, Mr. Foroozandeh exceeded all my expectations, in fact, he was contacting me and keeping me on top of the process, and making sure I was up to date on what was going on with my case. Mr. Foroozandeh not only was sincere and prompt, but also got the job done, and I would absolutely recommend him if anyone is in need of legal matters concerning property and family overseas!

Patient and Understanding Lawyer
I wanted to thank you for your guidance & patience about my wife medical case dispute. You were so very patient and understanding. You went to great lengths to help me to understand the options available to me. I felt it was the least I could do to let you know I appreciate the time you gave me. Not many would have been so generous. Thank you again for your time.
