The following is based upon my experience with Brian Tatarian as my divorce attorney.
I selected Brian as my divorce attorney from a long list of prospective lawyers. Brian had an excellent reputation within the divorce lawyer community. Once he was on my case, it was clear his knowledge of the Family Code was second to none. His paralegal, Kim, deserves credit also as she is very knowledgeable. Brian and Kim labored through my case for several years trying to bring it to a close dealing with unreasonable demands from a slew of opposing counselors. Unfortunately, my ex-wife simply wanted to litigate everything, and I mean EVERYTHING! (Even things like property that had little value compared to the actual cost of litigation.) This was the only ‘issue’ I had with Brian (note I didn’t say ‘negative’). For reasons that were unclear to me, he didn’t seem to want to force the issue and take my case to full trial. It was my opinion that’s what it was going to take- ‘force’. Ultimately, my case was handed over to another attorney who REALLY screwed things up. That resulted in what is probably Fresno’s County’s longest running divorce case at almost 9 years. But those were unforeseen circumstances. Nevertheless, Brian represented me very well. He is a tough negotiator and his knowledge of the Family Code will make sure your rights are protected. I would HIGHLY recommend Brian for anyone that truly wants to get divorced and move on with their lives. Brian does NOT want to litigate for no other reason but to simply ‘litigate’, and he is a better person for it. (BEWARE of other pettifogger lawyers who do!)

I had a very complicated and lengthy divorce that included financial issues as well as custodial.
Mr. Tatarian and his staff are the ultimate in professionalism, and expertise. The entire staff is personable, and exudes expertise. You feel very well taken care of, AND you are! He is knowledgeable and thoughtful.
While you will rarely get to speak to Mr. Tatarian (my only complaint) outside of the courtroom, he is always well prepared. If you call with a question on your case you are handled by his very experienced paralegals. They are honest and return calls in a timely manner.
