Transparent and Genuine
From the moment I called Naser I could tell he was passionate about what he does. He will not sugar coat anything, which we appreciated. We did not feel like we were just another case for him, he did a great job getting everything he needed for this including a PI. He was great to work with. He is also quick to respond. Thank you Naser for showing my family you genuinely cared and wanted to help. It truly gave us hope. He saved my family from going through an unjust situation.

Intelligent, Efficient, Result oriented
Naser is smart, available and gets stuff done. Naser focusses on what is important for the case to drive results. He doesn't waste time playing a therapist listening to emotions, that not only distract the focus but also drive the legal costs higher. He was always available and has the key facts of the case on top of his head. He delivered on what he promised, with no lofty promises or pessimistic compromises. I highly recommend Naser.

As I sat in the courtroom waiting because I encountered a great effort in a case by the defense. I looked up and realized it was my attorney Naser. It amazed me how much thought effort and great willpower he seemed to have. I personally think he’s an awesome attorney that really cares to bring Justice into cases for his clients. Not something you would get from most public defenders and county paid attorneys. This is a guy you want on your side.

Professional and passionate.
Naser represented me on a very complex divorce jurisdiction case. All along the way he was very straight forward about expectations and possible outcomes. He provided guidance on not just the legal aspect of the case but also practical advice on navigating co parenting in a hostile situation. He is really able to put himself in his clients shoes. When Naser represents you as a client you know that your fight is his fight and he will fight as hard as he can because its not about the money but about his client. He is truly passionate about his work and his clients. I highly recommend Naser, whatever you legal fight you are going thought you won't regret choosing him to be in your corner. On top of all that his rates are incredibly fair and you get far more than you pay for!

Miracle Worker
Mr.Nekumamesh has been a pure blessing for my children and I. We dealt a very disturbed and complicated individual(DV). This whole case took eight months, but this whole time he was so dedicated and very determined to get my restraining order to protect my family and I. It took about six months to even serve my abuser. As we faced numerous challenges those six months his perseverance and kindness guided me through all the doubt and fear. He is an extremely intelligent individual with integrity and decency who possess string analytical and advocacy skills. Also he showed consideration and empathy towards my family and I, offering to take on my case as pro bono. With his help I was granted a restraining order of five years for my children with no visitation from my abuser. I can't thank him enough for everything he has done for us. I highly recommend Mr.Nekumanesh for your legal needs.

Naser Nekumanesh is an amazing attorney! He will fight for you and be honest with you about the reality of your situation. He’s very persistent and won’t give up even if you have a hard situation. He cares about his clients I definitely recommend him. We are currently still working on my custody case but things are getting better already. He gave me the fire and hope the courts shut on me for years.

By far THE BEST person any one could hire to represent them. I was being charged with speeding, over 100 mph, and a DUI. And my blood alcohol level was not low. In the end Naser was able to convince them to drop my case down to just a wet and reckless. No jail time! Name someone else that could do that.. YOU CANT! Hes great! Ive also seen him work in my cousins trial case, my could was being charged with violent felonies,AND HE BEAT HIS CASE! Hire Naser Nekumanesh to represent you, it will honestly be the best decision you could make!

Naser is both an intelligent and dedicated lawyer, so needless to say, I was very satisfied with the services he provided. He explained my case and its possible outcomes in a professional way and remained very respectful about my decisions and opinions the entire time through. I would definitely recommend his services because he went over and above while fighting on behalf of my defense.

I want to express my sincere gratitude to Naser Nekumanesh. This was my first experience needing to hire an attorney and I couldn’t be more pleased. Mr.Nakumanesh was hired to represent my brother who was looking at several charges, a couple being strikable offenses. I met with Naser for a consultation (Sunday afternoon, spent at least 1 hour) explained the situation and how my brother got to the point of incarceration and though he could not make any promises he immediately made me feel like he would do everything in his power to get the best outcome for him. Naser wasted no time, after he consulted with me, he went and met with my brother who was already incarcerated and got to work. As he gathered more info and evidence he assured me there was no way he would allow a deal that included my brother taking a strike on his record. I do feel my brother received the best possible outcome and served the least amount of time which I am grateful for. Mostly, I am grateful for treating my brother and me with dignity and respect. For keeping me updated every step of the way, for clarifying and for not giving up even when my brother was not the most pleasant person to work with. Naser adds the human touch to the very serious business transaction. I hope to never need his services myself, but if I ever find myself, a friend or another family member in trouble he is who I want in my corner. Thank you Naser Nekumanesh!

Helpful & Caring
I am writing this review regarding my experience with Attroney Naser Nekumanesh. He was the Attroney we used for my brothers case. It just so happened that Naser happen to be one of the public defenders working on the day my brother had court. He went out of his way to help and explain the process. This turned out to be an ongoing court case and he made it a point to explain to my brother his options and took the time to explain them to the family. I am extremely thankful for the out come and also for having meet Naser that day. I feel the outcome had all to do with his actions in the court room that day. I would recommend him to anyone!

Amazing lawyer
I got To court today not expecting anything to happen. I hired A lawyer and paid 3k+ and got no where in 6 months. I let her go and went to the public defender and Naser Nelumanesh just so happened to pick up my case for free. He gave me a quick 3 second consultation and after reviewing my case he was able to get me a offer from felony criminal threats to a conditional of 18 months good behavior and get dismissed. Thank you so much.

Great Family Law Attorney
Nas is a fantastic lawyer! Hands down . My lucky stars aligned the day I met him ! He took the time to hear my story but most importantly , he believed in me. I felt like I had a friend who was well versed in the law. He always made it a point to review my case prior to court and debrief after court . We talked about my feelings . That was very important to me because I always felt anxious they day before and the day of but after court . Every call would put all my anxiety to rest . As much as I probably drove him crazy with my messy court case .... He always kept his composure. He represented me well. Very intelligent and professional. I appreciated his clear communication. He always checked for understanding, when in doubt . I believe my experience is important because I would have wished someone took the time to be transparent about their experiences with the lawyer that represented them . This is my intention with my review. Before I share more of my experience, I should start of by letting you know that I’m the person who has always wanted to be someone who fills out those surveys on the store receipts or be that lucky caller (back when i used to listen to radio and record all the songs on my tapes ) but life gets in the way and somehow that stuff no longer is on the top of my priority and soon enough, it’s out of site out of mind . However , this time it’s different . I wrote this out . Read it twice . Shared it with a couple of friends and now ...Hopefully, you’re reading this for some sort of guidance based of off my personal experience . I’m convinced by personal experience that most lawyers in big law firms only worry about making more money. It’s very unfortunate, because as a lawyer you carry a title that has so much power . People reach out during a vulnerable time and these big shots see an opportunity and they take advantage. They easily abuse that power because at the time a person is not thinking of the financial debt this could end up turning into or if he/ she truly has there best interest. The person seeking a lawyer , is just worried about there family and protecting them the only way he /she knows how . I felt that way about lawyers , until I met Nas.

Above and Beyond!
So thankful to have had Naser represent me in my case. I was looking at a pretty serious charge and the judge had decided if I lost my trial he would give me some jail time. I was pretty worried about my job and my family and my record but Naser went into that courtroom and killed it for me. I took it to trial and was hoping for maybe a hung jury but then they reached a verdict of Not Guilty which was even better and it was all thanks to Mr. Nekumanesh and the way he handled my situation. I would recommend him to anyone searching for or in need of an attorney.
