Legal Advice
He gave me some quick legal advice for free even though he did not have to and even a number to call for free legal assistance. I was going to retain him if I needed his services, but did not end up needing them. Still really suggest this lawyer

Great Lawyer to resolve landlord-tenant issues
I was searching for a law firm that could help landlords in resolving issues with tenants. Law Office of Brian Nomi was a good recommendation, so we reached out to Brian. Brian was awesome right from the start. He patiently listened to our problem and recommended next steps right away. All along, Brian was not only professional, but also knowledgeable and spot-on in reference to the outcomes of situations. Brian is very approachable and accessible. He always answers phone calls and promptly responds to emails. It is very important to know that Brian is compassionate and really cares about his clients. He gives good advice and handles issues without unwarranted complications. This certainly is a plus in stressful legal situations. Brian helped us in tackling our problem by communicating with our tenants in a firm and amicable manner which ultimately helped in resolving our tenancy issues and getting all unpaid dues along with our rental property vacated. I will certainly state that I always had comfort knowing Brian had our backs throughout our unfortunate messy situation with the tenants. Brian is highly recommended because he is not only knowledgeable but also a sincere and trustworthy lawyer.

Resourceful & Empathetic Attorney
I was referred to Brian Nomi by a co-worker who had approached Brian with his tenant problems. Since I too was in a very stressful situation with my tenants and desperately wanted to terminate their tenancy, I called Brian's office. Brian was very approachable and accommodating. I really appreciated the fact that Brian agreed to meet me and my wife the same day in spite of his busy schedule. Brian took the time to speak with us to understand our case and gave us clear and concise expectations regarding our situation. Brian relayed critical information in a manner that was simple to comprehend. My wife and I both found Brian extremely knowledgeable and responsive, a HUGE benefit! After our very first meeting, we felt confident that we were now in good hands and can have some peace of mind thinking everything will soon end up fine. Personally, I ask a lot of questions; but Brian was never bothered to answer my questions and address my concerns. In fact, more like a friend, Brian always comforted us and advised us not to stress. My wife and I always had the impression and confidence that Brian was on our side and would help us no matter what the situation. What really separates Brian from other lawyers (that we hear/read about) is how easy Brian is to interact with. All along, Brian was always approachable, and prompt in all communications. When interacting with Brian, we always felt that Brian is not only straightforward and clear, but also very resourceful and empathetic. Brian truly sincerely cares about his clients and is always looking to help them. I would highly encourage landlords to contact the Law Office of Brian Nomi for any tenancy issues that landlords struggle to deal with. Brian is truly a person of integrity and honor, simply a wonderful gentleman in every regard. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Brian, thank you once again for EVERYTHING :)

Offered a Patient Ear and Good Advice
I was in the midst of a very long loan modification process. I had been dealing with Chase since 2009 to try to modify loans that I had with them without much success. Then finally in 2014 one of the loans made me an offer to buy off the loan. I was dumbfounded as I wanted to just modify it. After speaking with accountant's, friends and others I considered their proposal. I wanted to make a counter-offer but wasn't sure how to go about it. That's when I found Brian Nomi on He actually told me that I didn't need him that how I was negotiating the loan was right on target. He encouraged me to carry out my proposal and offered his services if I felt out of water. I did make my proposal and it was accepted. Now after getting the run around for six years my faith in Chase wasn't strong. So I called Brian back and he told me what to do and what to get from them and what to expect on how Chase will handle this. Everything happened just the way he had explained it to me. He reviewed my final documents and gave me the green light to proceed. Even though he felt that he was just a minor role for me it was comforting to me that he was there. He always listened to me, never cut me off or try to speak over me. He gave me my time to get my thoughts out and then advised me on what I had just said. He didn't want to charge me but after insisting he charged me a nominal fee to review the documents. I am very appreciative of Brian's professionalism and guidance and I recommend him to anyone who needs help with his specialties.

Excellent Attorney
Brian handled a convoluted unlawful detainer case for me that involved family members a few years ago. He explained things in a way I could understand, and wasted no time getting to work on the problem, which he was able to resolve in a matter of weeks, keeping me well-informed every step of the way. I cannot recommend him too highly.

Very helpful consultation
I am a personal injury attorney helping some friends with their landlord/tenant issue. I have been calling different attorneys to get a second opinion. Mr. Nomi answered, was very professional, and took 10 minutes out of his busy day to discuss the matter with me. Even though it is a small claims case, something he could not take, he cared enough to discuss the case with me. Based on this I would highly recommend Mr. Naomi. Very knowledgable and invested attorney.

Top of the line attorney
Mr. Nomi knows his business and doesn't waste any time getting the job done. He kept me up to date and was personally concerned with my case. I recommend him more than highly. To top it off he is a really nice person.
Posted by SLO Couple | August 10, 2013
Mr. Nomi is highly professional and knowledgeable attorney who helped us navigate a difficult bankruptcy. We originally used another attorney to file our papers and he did not prepare them properly, which caused us some fairly significant problems. Mr. Nomi was able to pick up our case, sort things out and help ease our minds with his easy-going demeanor. He has integrity and truly cares for his clients. He is a superb attorney.

Very, Very Best of Attorneys from Someone Who Has Worked With Attorneys for Over 40 Years!
After over 40 years in the support arena of Law, i.e., Administrative Law Assistant, Paralegal, Law Clerk, Court Reporter, Brian Nomi is quite simply one of the VERY FEW, very best attorneys I have ever met. I had the luck to find him and have him represent me, at 69 years of age, in a bankruptcy that was something, I knew, I could never do?!!! Thank you, Brian Nomi, for your intelligence, integrity, compassion, and ability to get the job done while ALWAYS having your client's best interests at the forefront!! Mary B, Port Hueneme, CA

Posted by Camarillo Chapter 7 Client | September 10, 2012
I am a Chapter 7 client. After exhausting all other avenues for financial help/counseling and futher burdened with a divorce, I unfortunately was in a position where bankruptcy was my only option. I felt terrible about not being able to pay my debts. Brian was 100% understanding and professional with all aspects of the procedure. He himself answered the phone everytime I called for info and was very prompt in getting back to me with information. I felt very confident (and relieved) with Brian representing me as I knew nothing of how the system works. He was clear with explaining the process and what could expect. Highly recommended! I only wish my divorce lawyer was as good as Brian. NOTE: this website is acting up, and for some reason I can not rate Brian 'Excellent' for an Overall Rating, but for some reason 'Good' seems to work.

A super-nice and super-great lawyer!
Mr. Nomi is the best lawyer I have ever known. He helped us to collect debt from a very difficult company that always made empty promises and postponed the due dates indefinitely. With Mr. Nomi's effort, this company had finally started to make the payment for the debt, which had been overdue for a long time before we contacted Mr. Nomi. We are very impressed by Mr. Nomi's great service and his kindness: providing honest advice in the best interest of the client; no hiding fees; good communications; fighting hard for the client. A truly super-nice and great lawyer!

Help with BK
Everything went like clockwork with Brian. He made a very stressful situtation much easier to deal with and made me feel like I would be on the road to recovery in no time. He was right, I've already started building my credit and I hope in a about a year to be able to show a good credit rating.
Posted by Michael | December 9, 2011
Gets he job done!
Brian Nomi is extremely professional, educated, and knowledgeable in the areas of law that he practices. I would highly recommend him for anyone who is in trouble with foreclosure, and considering bankruptcy as a solution. He is straight to the point and gets the job done. I have sent many homeowners his way who have needed help, and he has delivered time and time again. Not everyone can be helped, and if that is the unfortunate case for you, Brian will tell you so you don’t have false hope, or pay an unethical attorney who will sell you fairytales. If he can’t help you, then it most likely can’t be done.

Brian Nomi handled my bankruptcy in a very professional, and caring manner. He really cares for people. His fees are very reasonable, and he answers calls and e-mails promptly. I highly reccommend Brian Nomi to anyone in need of filing bankruptcy

Posted by Jared | October 14, 2011
Highly Recommended!
I've never had an experience like this with any other attorney. Brian truly cares about his clientele. He consistently surprised my wife and I by going above and beyond the call of duty. Between the two of us, we probably wrote him a half dozen thank you emails, because he was amazing. Human, professional, highly skilled, calm. A true advocate of his clientele. "Gratitude is the least articulate of all emotions -- especially when it's felt deeply." Thank you Brian. Jared & Regina

Delivers what he promises!
Brian's website states that he offers caring and compassionate service and he truly delivers on that promise. He recently helped me with a very upsetting issue I had with a landlord. HIs knowledge of the law, his responsiveness and his follow-through is exceptional. In addition he called me twice to check on me and to see how I was doing. Wow!
