In February my ex decided not to return my my children to me because we didn't have a custody agreement and made false cps reports against my husband. We called Anna and she met with is that day. She worked day in and day out and got my children back. It was the worst time of my life and she made me feel safe. She is a child advocate and is a pit bull in court. I wouldn't change a thing.

I used Anna 4 years ago in a very horrific nasty custody battle. With my ex husband who was not even my daughter's biological father. My ex had hired a very expensive good old boy, and Anna outfoxed both creeps at every turn. She even had things like references for a child advocate and had ideas of things my daughter could do that no other attorney even knew of. So in the end the truth prevailed and my daughter was free of this nasty court battle that she was being dragged through. Anna really is a pitbull in court and really knows the law. She actually cares more for her clients then their money so she's the first attorney that I've ever seen that is not greed driven. I have recommended her to several people that were embroiled in nasty custody battles that were nothing other than their exes trying to be spiteful. She also has a great private investigator that works for her. So she has an awesome team at her disposal.

Anna is a good Lawyer she does what she can, to help her client get the best outcome. Anna works all hours, to make sure she is getting the job done in a reasonable amount of time. Anna keeps her clients informed, on what is going on in their case. Anna works really hard, sometimes to hard and she gets overwhelmed at times and or speechless but quickly gets back on track ! If you are a client Anna is representing, she responds quickly to her emails and or messages to make sure she is satisfying her clients needs ... Anna is a smart and dedicated attorney, thank you Anna for all you help on my case !!

I based on the reviews on this site and I can say that I made a good choice. Anna helped me in my child custody trial and she made the whole experience tolerable and smooth. I'm a single dad and she went to bat for me and we won our custody case. She's very personable and will put in 100% effort and attention to help win your case. She's brings big city knowledge to Lakeport. She has great work ethics and is truly a compassionate person, which is rare to find in her field. I highly recommend Anna.

Anna was excellent and worked quickly. She accomplished exactly what she said she strongly believed would happen. Very Thankful to have it removed and behind me.

I am a construction professional and I'm not very academic so going to court alone is very intimidating. Anna Gregorian is a professional that helped me feel confident that she would fight for the best possible result, no matter the outcome. She helped me when others would not unless I gave them a huge deposit. She took my case when I needed serious representation. The advice she gave me was reasonable and understandable. She took all the legal jargon and put it into terms I could comprehend. The actions she took were logical and focused. Office visits were productive and we accomplished something every time. She gave me her full attention even though she was very busy. If I had to go to trial I would feel very confident having Anna representing me and in the future. I would definatly seek the legal representation of Anna Gregorian.

Anna is hi energy and is a very compasionate person. She is a yeller, but at the same tiime a loving person. It took me some time but thank goodness I was able to really get to know her. Our case was a hard case and she was up front with us from the beginning. Yes her appointments are on Sundays and yes she may have someone in there, but what I asked was, can we meet when there is no one else that will interup us, and she did make those appt. She is strong willed and because she takes everyone's case to heart you may have to keep her on track with yours. If she gets carried away with you just ask her to breath. She gets excited about her cases and I believe that is when she yells. Just remember to tell her to breath and she will be great. She is definately not about money. I believe the only cases that she would loss are the cases that you don't follow what she tells you to do. Always carry a recorder so you know what she wants you to do and you just do it.

I contracted with Anna based on the type of courtwork she advertised in the yellow pages. During the initial interview, she was clear what she would and would not do with my case. So there was no doubt in my mind that I had the right counsel from the outset.
Attorneys sell advice, time, representation in court, and their built-up experience. A person who wants to choose an attorney (instead of being given a free public defender) should expect to live by the terms of the contract and make a payment once in a while. Attorneys went to a LOT of trouble to be licensed and get where they are, so folks who want the use of that expertise need to carry out their part of the bargain. Law degrees don't come in boxes of CrackerJack.
I tried to stay current with the contract, and Anna worked hard for my case. She never asked for more money. She is in the office 6-7 days a week and was always over-prepared for our case. She developed a fat file and we were ready for pretty much anything that might happen in a court. If we found something unexpected arose in court and we needed to work beyond what was covered by the retainer, she was clear and very reasonable about her fee.
Anna is a hard-driving, energetic person who does not lose sight of the goal. She is able to maneuver professionally in court and is effective against high-roller attorneys from bigger cities. She was able to close my case with better-than-expected results, and an affordable fee. She even checks up on me from time to time to see how I'm doing.
In my opinion, Anna's experience, energy, caring demeanor and her effective court style are worth MUCH more than she might charge to carry a case. I intend to use her again if the need arises. And if I were an attorney and found myself facing her in court, I would be quick to recommend to my client that we settle.

I hired Anna for a custody case. It was a very urgent matter and she assured me that she was a very great trial attorney and that she would be there for me 100%. She said that once she is someone's attorney she is committed to do her very best! I never received her best, I never received call backs, or explanations. I never knew where we were in the process or when my "defendant" was in communication with her. She refused to see me during business hours, always on a Sunday, and when I would arrive on a Sunday she had every other client there on a sunday as well and I never had my turn. She is very Passive aggressive, because I felt like I could trust her with the way she encouraged me, the way she said she was working so hard on my case, I felt at ease at those times. However when it came time for me to ask her about the progress she would get so defensive and become extremely rude. I came to find out it was because she really didn't know know the legal process in which she was doing. The money she took compared to the work she did, did not add up at all. I am right back at square one and as if no attorney was ever hired. I would not recommend her as an attorney, she does not know the business. I have had several attorneys, have been a paralegal and I will tell you that she has many clients, only because there are only 3 in this area. She emails your judgments, she texts your responses, and she will get very defensive and never take responsibility. I am very uncomfortable with her practicing law and you should really think twice before hiring her. Both her values and ethical systems are wrong, along with lack of knowledge. I have read her responses and she has said the same thing to her negative reviews"I can tell you this person was not a client of mine" just goes to validate me when I say how "shifty she is. When you hire an attorney to be on your side you TRUST them to be in your best interest. She is not, she is about the money and about herself, not about learning the process of law and the best interest of her client, the welfare of the life, lives at hand.
