Fast and amicable Divorce
Ali Yousefi helped me with my Divorce. He was very personable and extremely professional. He could jump on personal calls/meetings quickly and provided the most needed advice for the specific phase and time of the process. The Office will take care of all paperwork timely and efficiently. However, also they will dedicate time to discuss with you the right path you want to follow. He and his team will provide you all the information and will help you take the right decisions quickly. I strongly recommend the Law Office of Ali for cases like divorce or Family issues.

Best Divorce Lawyer
Last year my sister in law was having a hard time because she was going through a divorce. We made appointments with many lawyers to help us and guide us thorough this hard journey. All the lawyers asked us that they charge $5,000 and how are you going to pay me. We were so happy that we found Mr. Ali, out of all the lawyers he was the only one who didn't ask us how are you going to pay me back, instead he gave us a guidance to what we have to do. To be honest we felt hopeless and without a case, because of what other lawyers said. Just because they thought we couldn't pay them. That's when we found Mr. Ali on google and he has amazing reviews. We never thought that we will get an amazing relive when we were having such a hard time. He provided us with lots of information before anything. He was not worried about how are we going to pay him but he was more worried about providing us with justice. It was an honor that he guided us and took our case. He was there for us when everyone turn their back on us. He did an amazing work of giving justice to my sister in law and my nephew. We can still go on and write thousands of more good words for Mr. Ali but these words are still not enough to express my gratitude to Mr. Ali. We would also like to thank Mr. Karl who has been with me on my hard journey and attended all of my court Cases. Mr. Ali. and Mr. Karl are amazing and both of them know what they are doing. We just needed to close our eyes and trust them. They took all our burden and put it on their shoulder. Last thing but not the least thing is that we hope that no body goes thought the pain and suffering of divorce but if you go through it than just close your eyes and let Mr. Ali take care of everything.

Excellent service and very satisfied
Going through divorce as a male respondent with younger kids (below 1 year old) could be one of the most stressful situations you could find yourself; no one believes or no one listens to you till you find a law firm with people who actually listens to you and come up with a realistic plan. I started the divorce process having 0% access to my kids to a 50/50 plan with the help of Mr. Yousefi and his team. The first time i talked to Mr. Yousefi about my divorce, he listened to me and gave me an honest and realistic breakdown of how he intend to go about the case and what he will seek for me. Everyone on that team was very respectful of my opinion, my time and what i wanted throughout the case. Their responsiveness and ability to coordinate processes made it easier for me to communicate with them, even after hours and weekends. I highly recommend the law firm for anyone seeking an attorney.

Lawyer who worked and supported like my family
After changing multiple lawyers, Ali was the best lawyer that I consulted and later ended up hiring him. I knew from the beginning that he was the one who can do this fake allegation case. My case was absolutely fraud and false allegation case and he fought like a warrior and crushed the other side... I don't have words to thank enough to Ali for helping me in my case. He is the best lawyer in Bay Area , pen down. He crushed the opposing side with his excellent trial skills. The other party gave up in trial and he made sure that the law was presented focussing on real issue as OPC will always try to confuse in case by talking about rubbish and non issue and other party will try to get as much money as possible by extending the case. He made sure to target what was absolutely needed and stay away from noise. He handled the case so well that I was able to focus on my life while the case on ongoing. He crushed the other party in deposition and trial with the proofs that were presented. He brought the case to an end by saving tons of money. Happy to see the face of the other party that she did't even show up on final trial and gave up. Haha ! I suggest if you want peace of mind, hire him ... you will thank me later... If you want best service don't think about money and he is super reasonable...

Saving grace
I'm not sure where to begin with this review. I have so many emotions. I was going through a tough start in my divorce and I had no idea what I was doing until my friend stumbled upon Ali on Yelp and sent me his link. I sat with crippling anxiety reading these same reviews from people like me who needed help. I felt lost and alone and really just at the bottom of the barrel in everything and Ali made my tiring divorce process so easy and smooth. He is very attentive and generous and doesn't make you feel like just another number. I had no idea what getting divorced entailed and he was really good at explaining everything to me without making me feel stupid. He was understanding and compassionate and even though I do not know him outside of my case, I felt like I could talk to him like a friend. If you are looking for someone to stand by you and help you without adding any more needed stress to your situation, please choose to use Ali. After everything had been taken care of and the last of my paperwork had been signed, I almost felt emotional about "saying goodbye", like I needed to give him a hug for all the help that he gave me. I hope that this review can help someone who is going through the same thing I was going through and help them make the decision to go with Ali as their attorney.

Repeat Client
This is my second case with Ali Yousefi. His patience, professionalism and gentle demeanor made it an easy decision to use his services again. I am not particularly litigious but I was having some issues with an insurance company after a car accident. It was frustrating and extremely stressful. So I called Ali and we discussed my issues and my goals- to stop the harassment and that my hospital bill be paid. It was an instant load of my shoulders. Based on our previous case I knew my interests would be paramount and that the case would be handled appropriately. I am actually now one of those people who “has a lawyer”. I am thankful that my lawyer is Ali Yousefi and I will confidently use his services should the need arise!

Great experience!
Ali was very instrumental in settlement of my financial claims against my ex. From our first phone consultation in which he laid out the options and clearly explained to me how things would unfold, until the case was wrapped up he worked with me along the way. He is very accommodating, helpful, prompt and expert in his profession. While many lawyers didn't seem interested to pursue my case considering the costs, he knew from the beginning that a demand letter would very likely result in settlement. I am pleased that I worked with him!

Honest, reliable highly recommended
If you or someone you know needs an attorney for an issue, Ali is your man! I have hired Ali for multiple different cases. My outcome was as good as I could have hoped each time. I've called him for advice on all issues and he's always available. If he's not, he emails or calls back within a few hours or so, which is not something you can say about most lawyers nowadays. There has not been a single time where I had to call more than once for him to get back to me. Ali gives everything he has for you, which in my opinion, is one of the most important things in picking an attorney. Until meeting Ali, I was not satisfied with other attorneys I met with. That was one of the main reasons I chose Ali, because he was available, compassionate and put in his all every time. Everyone who has asked me to recommend an attorney, I've given them Ali's number with no hesitation. He always fights for more and always aims for the best outcome putting everything he has into each client. He makes an effort to meet with his clients and doesn't put them off and lengthen the process because he's "busy" with a "more important case/client". He gives a detailed explanation of all possible options leaving you more encouraged and empowered because of his professionalism and compassion. I wish I could give more than 5 stars for his efficiency, reliability, availability, and professionalism.

Somone on your side
Ali very recently represented me in a divorce. I found him to be a very honest and trustworthy person throughout the few months we worked together. I was clueless about the divorce process and quite shocked at some of the procedures and opposing counsel demands and Ali was very patient and understanding with me. He made a very difficult time bearable for me. With Ali, I felt that someone was on my side and doing everything possible to protect me. I highly recommend Ali Yousefi to anyone who wants to work with someone honest and hardworking. He is high caliber and a blackbelt at his craft.

Best Attorney Award
I and my brother truly appreciated him for all his guidance. The help he gave us was very appreciated. He was very professional and provided above and beyond the level of service to us. He was easy to call and contact by email 24/7. He answered all our questions and eased our concerns. Without a doubt, the most professional lawyer I've ever dealt with. I wish I could nominate him for some kind of best attorney award because I truly think he deserves it. Sohail K.

Auto Accident Case
I was in an auto accident a few months ago and hired Ali Yousefi to represent me in my Auto Accident Case. I can't say enough about Ali. My accident was absolutely horrible and the person that rear ended me did not have adequate insurance coverage. Ali worked hard with the insurance company to obtain a better settlement for me. He was always available and got back to me right away. His level of service and dedication to my case was beyond amazing! If you've been in an auto accident and looking for representation, I highly recommend Ali Yousefi for your personal injury case.

Professional and Honest Lawyer
Haitham and his co-counsel Ali were professional and personable. After coming out as Trans my Ex filed a unmerited restraining order against me and my kids in an attempt to gain favor in the ongoing custody battle for my children. He was careful not to misgender me and was very respectful. He guided me through the entire process from supervision, mediations, and the court proceedings. He worked diligently to get me the most favorable outcome without costing me a fortune by getting opposing counsel to settle out of court. A++

Civil Dispute
I have been around lawyers most of my life but this was my first experience personally needing a lawyer for a Civil Dispute. I had a matter that I wanted to deal with as quickly as possible but I was also unable to take time off in the middle of the day to go to any of the other offices I contacted via random google searches. Through a bar association referral service I was entitled to 3 consultations. My first and only was with Ali Yousefi. He reached out to me in lightening speed and let me use my full 30 minutes as I vented and panicked and picked his brain about options. His rates were perfectly with in the range the other firms had quoted and he was able to conduct the case via text, email, and phone due to my work situation. Mr. Yousefi responded to all my emails and phone calls in more than a timely fashion. I would say he was readily available even on weekends and always quick to respond. More than anything else he was a great comfort and calming voice in a very tumultuous time. He was always very sensible and ready to collaboratively talk through some of the very weird and unusual aspects of my case. I never felt like my case was unimportant even though it was probably fairly minor as these things go. The potential for my case to have stretched out for 3 or more months was a very real possibility and I never could have done it with a lawyer that I didn't believe in, trust and have a rapport with. I truly can say that he made this really bizarre and awful situation better by being in my corner. I would hope to never need his services again but if I do I will be 100%m confident in his services.
