We just concluded our 3 month long child custody case and couldn't of asked for better results. I am a father that just received full legal and physical custody. My case was extremely complicated with many different aspects however, Swati and her team, with dedication, took the time it needed. Our case has been on going for 3 years in out of court when we decided to hire Swati with hopes to finally end the turmoil and she delivered! I would recommend her to anyone.

The hardest thing I have dealt with in my life is looking into the eyes of a planned child who has been abandoned by his biological father. The second hardest was having to exercise court intervention, after trying to avoid that route at all cost, because he resisted assuming the bare minimum responsibility of paying full child support for our child. Last month, after nearly a year and a half of hard work, stress, emotional trauma and a contentious fight to achieve the goals of security and justice for my son and me, I won a milestone judgment. Was awarded both the fair settlement we fought for, and the peace of mind we deserve. This would have been impossible without the expertise, understanding, kindness, quiet gravitas, diligence, patience, compassion and excellent counsel of Swati Desai, an exceptional family law attorney who was recommended by my company’s general counsel.
What I appreciate most about Ms. Desai is that the only area of law she practices is Family Law, so you can feel confident you are getting an expert in the field. She is devoted to producing the highest caliber of legal work, and is guided by an uncompromising commitment to obtain peace of mind and justice for her clients.
I recommend no one to help solve such important and personally crucial situations as the one I just faced, frivolously. But in this case, I do so profoundly, as Swati’s work was so extraordinary that I couldn’t think of a better way to express my deepest appreciation and gratitude than to recommend her services to my friends, colleagues and anyone who might at some point find themselves in similarly difficult situation with no clear path to resolution in dealing with a non-cooperative and contentious party.

Swati Desai has helped me from beginning of my case to end of my case. She works for making a better quality future life for her clients not for money what I noticed.

Swati charged me SEVERAL THOUSAND DOLLARS to read my emails and print/file the attachments even AFTER I FIRED HER. And worse, she never gave any indication that she had absolutely no intention of using the extensive documentation I've accumulated about my ex-wife's undisclosed assets and income. Instead, Swati effectively colluded with my ex by bullying me into a stipulated "settlement agreement" with an unwarranted "equalization payment" from debt-ridden me (I just want an equal share of my son's life) to my allegedly "poor" ex-wife (whose corporations hide her profitable real estate empire).

Swati Desai is the best in her field. She is thorough, straight forward, doesn't beat around the bush and gets work done. She handled my case very practically and got my daughter's passport renewed in no time. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of child custody or any divorce related issues.

I was introduced to Swati Desai through a mutual colleague and we immediately connected. Swati Desai is a professional and caring attorney. I retained Swati for my complex divorce case that involve major custody concerns as well as the usual financial disputes. Her knowledge and experience in family law demonstrated by her certification as a Family Law Specialist by the California Board of Legal Specialization and by her ability to concisely address the court with my concerns is remarkable. In the court room I felt very confident sitting next to Swati. She came well prepared and I appreciated that before my court appearance, we met to discuss our strategy and my concerns. We had a plan. Outside the courtroom Swati and her team are accessible and available to answer questions and to advise. Swati is an expert at what she does and her compassion is real. Without any hesitation I fully recommend Swati Desai.

Having never written a review before, I feel compelled to share my experience with Swati Desai because I am beyond grateful for her. She is absolutely brilliant in the courtroom. She overwhelmed the other side with her preparedness and quick thinking. There was no question that she trumped the other attorney in intelligence, legal knowledge and ability to gauge the situation. She worked hard on my case and when she spoke, I felt I was truly represented - all of my concerns, fears, and desperate need to keep my family together was conveyed eloquently and effectively.
I have been through many lawyers during my custody/divorce case. I've had attorneys who promised me everything up front and when it was time to perform they told me I had no case. When I hired Swati to handle my convoluted custody hearing I could sense she was different. She wasn't phased by the minutia yet she kept track of everything. She knew how to navigate and be in control of the situation. She is genuine and compassionate and she helped me stay calm while she strategized. Nothing is guaranteed but at least give it your best by having the best on your side.

I cannot say enough good things about Swati Desai! She is a great lawyer. I was refered to her and I now recommend her to everyone I know. She successfully handled my very difficult child custody dispute.
She is incredibly knowledgable, a great strategist and is really quick on her feet in the court room. She was able to gage which way the judge was moving or leaning and was able to change her argument and strategy on the spot. I was truly in awe. I think my ex's lawyer was as well....
She was also very supportive, empathetic and kind. She was truthful with me about my options and the likely outcomes, unlike some less scrupulous lawyers.
If you need a family law lawyer, hire Swati.

After I was frauded by my husband, verbally abused, physically in a state of Danger with my 1 year old son; Swati Desai fought my case as if it were her own.
Not enough words are in the dictionary to describe this woman. After meeting with tons of lawyers, the best decision of my life was to go with Swati Desai. I am now in the best protection and have all of my rights for me and my son, and I have my sanity back
Thank you Swati
I don't know where I would be if it wasn't for you and your hard work

Our experience with Swati Desai was amazing. Over the course of about a year, she walked us through the most painful experience of our lives (almost loosing our children) with empathy and with professionalism. I can honestly say that every time I think of Swati I don't remember the court room, in which I was completely stressed and she was phenomenal, or the money, which, after a year, you can imagine was significant (and completely worth every penny), instead I remember how much she cared, and how happy she was when our family was kept together.
