BEST! Professional, dedicated, kind, competent!
I usually don't leave reviews, but I know how overwhelming it is to choose a lawyer, so I want others to benefit from my experience. If you are looking for an HONEST, COMPETENT, PROFESSIONAL, KIND, and GENUINE lawyer that will fight for your family, Ms. Moshrefi is the ONE! She is an excellent lawyer. She is not only professional and competent but kind and genuine. I hired her after having the worst experience with another lawyer. She did what he failed to do. Ms. Moshrefi was always informed of what was happening in my case. She always responded promptly to my emails and calls. During our initial consult, she took the time to listen to my full story. She was honest and didn't make false promises but told me what she could do for me. She always explained everything so clearly to me, and I felt she had my daughter's and my best interests in mind. Her staff is wonderful! Angela is so kind and professional. Jonathan is competent and on top of the case. Everyone is so efficient, communicates well, and is so professional. Ms. Moshrefi is worth every penny! Thanks to her, my family has the peace we were denied for years. I wish I hadn't wasted my time and resources with the previous lawyer and hired her first. I have no words to express my gratitude for your and your team's dedication to winning my case. I wish you all nothing but prosperity!

Highly recommend, very professional and honest
Needing a divorce attorney is not ever a good thing, but when you do I would highly recommend Mary. She was very honest from the start, did not make any promises she could not keep but keep it very real but was able to be companionate while being very professional. She gave honest recommendations but always listened to how I was feeling. Her knowledge of the law and how court works, along with her experience with the local court system helped me to make decisions that lead to an agreement that I am very happy with. She worked well with the other attorney making sure deadlines were kept. Mary also communicated with my support system which was very helpful for me. I am very happy with Mary and her support staff and I would highly recommend her to anyone with a difficult situation. A plus was that Mary was recommended to me by another attorney, that helped me to make my choice that was right for me, and I am very happy with the end result. Again, I would highly recommend Mary for representation, she will always have your best interests in mind and will communicate all options with you so you can make the best decision for your situation.

Highly recommend! Very thorough and practical approach to my divorce. She's not here to just make money but to help me close out a relationship that was long overdue. Her and her team were very diligent and kept the communication open at all times. Thank you all for your help.

Excellent family law attorney!!!
Ms. Moshrefi helped to negotiate an order and stipulation regarding joint physical and legal custody of our daughter. She got me substantial monthly child support payments and an agreement that was probably 95% of what I wanted. She was kind, professional, a good listener, did not over-promise, and really delivered for me. Her office staff are knowledgeable, hard working, and extremely helpful. Highly recommend!!!

Exceptional and Humble
In the midst of a pandemic, hiring an attorney, while living out of state, having to work strictly through email, phone and zoom is nothing short of a nightmare! But, if you have to do so, Mary Moshrefi is absolutely who you want to fight for you. I have never had to hire an attorney before but Mary, from the start, put us at ease and we quickly realized her professionalism. She reached out to us a couple days before Thanksgiving, on her day off and made it a point to help us take a deep breath! Mary prides herself on her professionalism, her patience and she is exceedingly knowledgeable. The amount of effort she puts forth is extraordinary. Mary told us exactly what she required from us so there was no uncertainty. Laws differ state to state so Mary patiently explained to us California law. My family could not be happier with our decision to hire Mary and with the outcome of our case.

Moshrefi Law
I will start by saying that I have been a client of Mary’s since 2012. Let’s just say that I have been to hell and back for divorce and child custody issues. Mary has been incredible! She has stood up for me and what was best for my children. to three different attorneys. The way that Mary carries herself, her knowledge, preparedness, intelligence, and determination are the best you will find. Mary knows exactly what she is doing. Her closing arguments are the best that you will hear and her attention to detail leaves no stone unturned. With that being said, Mary is honest and reasonable in her approach and will not waste your time or money. If you want the best, Mary Moshrefi is your choice.

Family Law Case Victory
I reached out to Ms. Moshrefi and her office in a time of need to help me with a Family Law case and I am so glad I did. Her and her staff were all nothing shy of amazing. They genuinely cared about me and would not stop until they saw that I was taken care of. She knew the law inside and out, defended me, and made sure to do everything she could which resulted in bringing me out of a difficult situation that I would still be stuck in if it weren’t for her and her wonderful team. I can’t thank you all enough everything! If you are looking for a lawyer, look no further... She will defend and represent you as if she were doing it for her own self or family, ALWAYS. You will not regret having her in your corner.

Highly Recommend, Amazing Lawyer
Mary Moshrefi represented me during a custody and move away request, and I wanted to share my positive experience. The situation itself was highly stressful, but Mary was extremely supportive through out the whole process. She intently listened to my concerns and answered all of my questions with great detail. She was honest with me from the start and never gave me false hope. She was very organized and knowledgeable, and I felt very confident with her by my side. In the courtroom Mary was professional and assertive when presenting our case. In addition to the excellent service from Mary, the legal assistant Cyndi Ellison was also extremely helpful. She was very caring and sincere. She took the time to listen to my concerns and was very empathetic in the process. Overall I had a very satisfying experience, and I highly recommend Mary Moshrefi without any hesitation.

Extremely Satisfied; Highly Recommended
Mary recently represented my son during a child custody matter and I wanted to share the great experience we had throughout the entire ordeal. First of all, Mary is genuinely a very nice person. She has a warm personality and always made my son and I feel welcomed into her office to discuss our case. Her staff were also very welcoming and helpful, which made going through this process much easier to endure. Mary is an extremely competent lawyer. She was always prepared when meeting with me and my son. She listened intently and patiently to our concerns. She never made any promises and was candid and insightful about the family court process and what to expect throughout. She was very practical in her approach and, despite the emotions we naturally felt, she helped us see through a more logical and reasonable lens. Her overall strategy was spot on. What was most impressive was Mary’s courtroom performance. Her demeanor was graceful and respectful. That said, her arguments and positions were comprehensive and quite persuasive. In the 30+ years of past federal employment, I had the opportunity to work with many, many attorneys. There is no doubt in my mind Mary ranks among the very best. Because of her, my son was victorious in his case. It is without hesitation that I highly recommend her to you.

Thank you so much!
It's not easy to be a single dad, trying to get through family court with a tough divorce. Mary was recommended to me by a friend, and she has been very professional. I like that she listens to me and makes me feel heard, while at the same time keeping me grounded and realistic in my expectations of the court. She has never given me unrealistic hopes, while at the same time she has given her best efforts and achieved more than I had dared to hope. I have an ex who is focused on destroying me and taking my kids away, to the extent that she opposed family counseling for our kids because that would interfere with her ability to manipulate them. It took over 5 years of legal battles, the last 3 of which were with Mary. Throughout all of this, I did my part and followed Mary’s advice, letting her call the shots and set the legal strategy. I had to accept that the legal system isn’t always logical or fair, and you just have to make the best of what there is. That having been said, it still turned out good in the end; I just had to be patient and keep taking one step at a time. Sometimes it seemed like it would never end. One thing is absolutely certain – the only thing more expensive than a good attorney is not having one!!! I have known too many people who tried to go it alone without an attorney, with disastrous results. Speaking of money, Mary will work with you. She will let you do a lot of leg work, running back and forth to file things with the court and so forth, to help manage the cost. It still isn’t cheap (I have yet to meet a good attorney that is), but if you make this your first priority and put off all other unnecessary expenses it will be so worth it in the end! You just have to keep moving forward and trust that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Being a single dad in the family court system can be very frustrating and discouraging, but I hung in there because I don’t want my kids to ever think I gave up on them. Mary understood. It cost me a lot of money, but she did a really good job and in the end I overcame the adversity and my ex was finally put in check by the court. I have joint custody, can claim one kid for taxes, I pay a reasonable amount for child support, my kids and I are in counseling and my relationship with them is getting better (they used to blame me for everything). I'm a very satisfied client!

Best Custody Attorney
Mary was great with my custody case. She was worth every penny spent, and it shows very well in court or any conference. The staff is amazing, always greet you by name. She and her staff made 1 1/2 years of hell the best it could be. Her service is so well that I have and will keep her on retainer until my son is 18.

A worthy attorney
My best friend and I had the privilege of consulting with Mary for a child custody case. From the beginning Mary made us feel more than just potential clients. Mary was sensitive and attentive to our concerns and gave us her honest and professional opinion. We decided to hire her and it was the best decision we made! We saw her in action in court today and I cannot say enough positive things about Mary. She truly is everything she projects herself to be, professional, understanding and compassionate, extremely confident, a fighter of justice (she really fights for you). Mary knows how to use the power of her knowledge with strong arguments, reasoning and conviction. She is extremely astute and knows how to deliver results! Needless to say my best friend won her case and the relief, joy and gratification that brings is priceless! Mary was worth more than the reasonable cost we paid and will be well worth your consideration and modest investment. Mary even suggested ways to keep the cost down to a minimum, truly showing consideration toward her client. If you want not only a winner, but someone to ease your worries and diminish your stress, call Mary Moshrefi!

Great experience
Mary just assisted me with a custody issue and made a very unpleaseant experience easier and manageble. She was there to answer all my questions, acted to situations quickly, and streamlined the process. Words cannot describe enough how grateful I am that she represented me for my custody case. She made all the difference in the outcome and removed some of the stress during the process.

Top notch!
I'm writing to give a well-deserved top rating for Mary. I went to Mary for a post-divorce issue involving a justified reduction in spousal support. I was unsatisfied with my divorce attorney, and so I went with the recommendation of a friend who had used Mary for his divorce. Wow! What a refreshing experience! Mary was highly professional and her experience and knowledge of family law was immediately evident. She was very diplomatic, but aggressive and clearly interested in representing my best interests. I didn't hesitate to follow her sage guidance, and the result was a successful resolution in minimum time and expense. On top of this, she offered me a military discount--which I had never even heard of from an attorney! (If only I had known of Mary when things hit the fan in my life!) Based on the experience of both myself and my very satisfied friend, I'm pleased to offer my enthusiastic support for Mary. Your choice of an attorney during a potentially traumatic divorce experience can have a hugely significant effect on your life post-divorce, so choose carefully! For a very positive experience in the midst of remarkable negativity, I highly recommend Mary!

Divorce process - great legal expertise
Ms. Moshrefi was extremely knowledgeable and and competent in the legal guidance she provided me. Throughout my divorce process I felt that I could trust her to explain to me what to expect, to represent me well in court and advocate for me. In addition, I admire Ms. Moshrefi's sensitivity and kindness in handling very emotional and personal issues as mine was. I'm grateful to her for all this assistance. Her office staff also are very professional, friendly and always willing to assist.
