Smooth Results
Raheleh was wonderful to work with. We got our filing in and even amended it. We finished out and it took about 5+ months for the Chapter 7. Thank you so much!

Professional, efficient, and friendly
I was referred to the Law Offices of Ms. Shakoori by Legal Zoom. I had no idea what to do and I was quite stressed and confused. All that ended after my first consultation and subsequent service from Ms. Shakoori. She is very re-assuring, factual, put everything in terms an average person like me could understand, and went over every detail until she was sure I completely understood the process. I am very pleased. Ms. Shakoori took ownership of my case, handled my case efficiently and made the whole process for me personally as least stressful and complicated as can be in such matters. Rachelle Shakoori is a superior attorney who dedicates herself to her clients equally, knows what she is doing, is punctual, informative, and attentive. Her staff is also superior; also knowing how to help should Ms. Shakoori be in court or otherwise unavailable at that moment. Hoping that I do not ever require such services again, if I do... I will be contacting Ms. Shakoori as my attorney and if someone asks me about such services, I will indeed recommend Ms. Shakoori. I attest that I am an actual (very happy... and relieved) client of Ms. Shakoori.

Rating of Mrs Shakoori
I was scared to death when I had my first meeting with her but she calmed me instantly. Everytime I had a question, she encouraged me to call her and even provided her personal cell phone number. In one word I can describe her and her firm as being awesome!!

I was in a tight financial spot, with a new baby on the horizon. I had no options available but to file for bankruptcy. I came to Rachelle and she was amazing! The case went smooth and I got what I wanted. Thank you so much!

Highly Recommend!!!!!
I would highly recommend Attorney Raheleh Shakoori. My wife and I had to file for chapter 7 Bankruptcy, she fully explained the process to us and did not give us the run around like a few other Attorney’s we talked to did. She was outstanding and was always available when we had a questions. If you need to file for Bankruptcy you need to use Raheleh Shakoori as your attorney.

MS. Shakoori is AMAZING!!! Highly Recommend.
I was going through such a rough time financially. She explained all of my options. I had reviewed and met with other lawyers but after my first meeting I knew she was the one to go with. She is so professional, doesn't talk down you for your mistakes, explains everything to you step by step. I'm so thankful and always will be.

Excellent Attorney and a True Professional
After finally deciding to climb out of debt and start over, I was referred to Ms. Shakoori by a friend, and for that I am very thankful. Not only was she knowledgeable and personable, but extremely honest and professional. She explained every step of the process and responded to every phone call and email right away. I have dealt with several attorneys in the past, and have never experienced this level of attention and responsiveness. I can't say enough good things about Rachelle, and I highly recommend her to anyone considering bankruptcy.

Great Attorney
Rachelle was superb through the entire process. I had very serious tax issues and she assisted me through each step. I would recommend her to anyone considering bankruptcy. She is very honest, and provides great service.
Posted by anonymous | September 16, 2011
Raheleh handled my case like a true professional and I couldnt have asked or received better service. I must have emailed her day & night with questions as far as whats next, etc., and I received the guidance and instruction I needed every time. I cant say filing bk was a bad experience because everything that I needed done under my special circumstances was granted and I was able to end this chapter with a happy ending. I cant say thank you enough :)

Personable and reliable attorney who guides you with ease
Rachelle had done an excellent job with my case. She guided me through what I perceived as a rather scary journey with ease. She explained everything very well and did an excellent job of keeping in touch with me throughout the whole process. Her office staff are very friendly and helpful as well.
