Absolutely Fantasic!
Being that I live in Arizona and my divorce case was based in Sacramento, California, I was a little worried about how I was going to get a conclusion to my divorce case with the distance and my limited funds. I had already worked with a couple of other lawyers who took my money and didn’t do a thing for me. Feeling defeated and worn down I looked for one final attorney who could push my case to finality. I searched website upon website reading reviews and opinions to hopefully find the right attorney for me. I contacted and later hired Wazhma and she was able to accomplish more in the 6 months she represented me, than the combination of lawyer’s I had for the previous 3 years. She was able to bring a conclusion to an emotionally and financially draining experience that lasted for almost five years. I am finally free of court proceedings and no longer have to worry about my ex-wife using something I’ve said against me in court. Wazhma was always available when I needed to talk to her, and would usually respond either right away or within a few hours. She is incredibly easy to talk to, and she really takes the effort to understand your case and what you want to achieve out of it. In hearings she was very stern, and would not let the opposing council push her around and always strived to get me the best outcome. I cannot say enough good things about her professionalism and experience in the family law field. I would recommend Wazhma to anyone who needs legal help with family law. She’s fantastic. Thank you Wazhma, you have given me the ability to move forward with my life.

I'm so glad I found Wazhma
I was referred to Wazhma by a local attorney. I live in the Bay Area but my Divorce was out of Sacramento County. I am so glad I found Wazhma. After our first consult it was clear to me Wazhma is professional and patient. I have a somewhat complex case which includes divorce, paternity and custody. Instead of quickly trying to get me to retain her, Wazhma offered me some good free advice. A few weeks later after I realized I would need an attorney to help me I retained Wazhma. There is still part of my case pending but the paternity issues have been resolved via a trial and I have to say I am so glad she is on my side. The bottom line is she gets the job done, is kind, patient and knowledgeable. All that is important, but what I felt really sets her apart from the competition is her compassion. This was a very challenging and emotional ordeal and throughout the entire process I always felt she was in it with me and not just punching the clock. I could go on about how happy and impressed I am with Wazhma. The bottom line is she is a master at her craft, kind, patient and also I felt she was very fair with her billing and didn't nickle and dime me for everything.

I had the privilege of working with Wazhma during my divorce proceedings, and I cannot speak highly enough of her professionalism, expertise, and support throughout the entire process. Wazhma took the time to listen to my concerns, understand my situation, and outline a strategy to keep my case moving forward. Her knowledge of family law and confident navigation of every aspect of my case left me feeling calm and protected. Wazhma's ability to prioritize and negotiate is remarkable. She remained focused on achieving the best possible outcome and helped me to raise above the most challenging aspects of my case. Her guidance during the most difficult time in my life was invaluable. The communication from Wazhma and her team was outstanding. They kept me informed at every step, promptly addressed any questions or concerns I had, and ensured that I fully understood my options and rights. Their attention to detail and commitment to my case were exemplary. Wazhma's negotiation skills were unparalleled, resulting in a settlement that far exceeded my expectations. Her ability to advocate on my behalf during negotiations was impressive, and I am grateful for the favorable outcome she achieved. Thanks to Wazhma and her dedicated team, I was able to achieve a settlement that provided for my needs and future security.

THE BEST
I felt safe with her as my attorney as I know her depth of knowledge is extensive, she has a great courtroom presence and I felt like my Judge appreciated her demeanor and professionalism. The office and her team have excellent communication skills and are very responsive. Billing was very fair and I never felt like she was trying to extend things or bill ridiculous hours. I would definitely recommend her for anyone dealing with domestic violence issues or for anyone who has a difficult, cluster b personality disordered ex. Other party in case was very rude to her for absolutely no reason and she handled it wonderfully and professionally.

Outstanding
I had previously dealt with other attorneys referred by someone who took my case but did not help me. Feeling discouraged, helpless, and exhausted, I looked for one attorney to represent me and my case appropriately, and then, I must say, I was blessed when Wazhma came in. Wazhma was professional and patient from our initial consultation. She was very responsive and caring. Wazhma is easy to talk to, and she makes every effort to understand your situation, case, and your goals. Wazhma was always available when I wanted to speak with her, and she typically responded immediately. Wazhma is clearly efficient and cleaned up the very messy situation left by another lawyer. I'm grateful to Wazhma. I had a somewhat complicated case with numerous concerns. Rather than pressing me to participate in legal proceedings, Wazhma gave me proper guidance and adequate resources and time to think things through. She never rushed me to make decisions throughout the process and provided me with ample time and resources to clear my mind and plan for the future for myself and my family. She empowered me to make informed decisions with my case and made me feel valuable by supporting and representing me in everything and addressing all my issues. I’m finally out of the court proceedings and no longer have to worry about any previous issues. Wazhma’s exceptional legal knowledge, experience, and strategic approach are invaluable. She was also quite fair in her billing. Wazhma is an excellent lawyer committed to protecting your rights and interests. Thank you, Wazhma; you have given me the confidence and the courage to continue my life.

My experience with Wazhma and her team was nothing short of exceptional. They took the time to explain the legal concepts about my case in a clear and concise manner.

They empowered me to make well-informed decisions throughout my case and truly made me feel like a valued client by listening attentively and addressing all of my concerns. Wazhma's outstanding legal expertise, strategic approach and persuasive arguments were instrumental in winning my case. I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone in need of legal assistance.

Divorced after a 44 yr. marriage
Property, businesses, and a decision to proceed with a collaborative divorce with Wazhma made my experience as painless as possible. She was a strong advocate in the face of someone who was too used to doing exactly as he pleased. And yet, she was also realistic. It was such a relief to finally be done, though with 3 kids and 8 grands, one is never all done.

LEGAL RATING FOR WAZHMA MOJADDIDI
Miss Wazhma was amazing right from the start! She spent 20 minutes with me on the phone answering my questions before we even locked in a retainer- showed she really cared about my situation and family! Divorce is hard enough and then to not get a solid lawyer like her would have been even worse! Her entire legal team and her are true legal ROCK STARS! They know the law and how to help their clients. She even worked with me on the payment/s. Top notch legal service - Highly recommend!!

Great reputation well deserved

Phenomenal lawyer
The only thing I regret was that I didn’t retain Wazhma from the beginning or it would be a total game changer. I was able to change attorneys when I felt my previous attorney was neither competent nor aggressive. Wazhma instantly picked up the case and wasted no time. She was able to get us through mediation without going to court and settled the case. Yes, I did lose money but that is the part of legal process but she fought for me to get the most out of this situation. She is a no nonsense attorney and I highly recommend her without reservation. I still retain Wazhma for any future affairs that I expect to arise in the future and I’m sure she’s there for me.

Excellent representation
If I could give more than 5 stars, I would. Wazhma is amazing and her staff are all very helpful. My case has been difficult, opposing counsel is ridiculous and unethical. Wazhma has been great in dealing with the nonsense and keeping me informed of all options.

Exemplary and Aggressive Attorney
First things first: lawyers who are no where NEAR Wazhma’s caliber are charging out the butt for crap work. Wazhma is charging a reasonable price when she should be charging WAY more. I say this with utter confidence- Wazhma is the best attorney to exist. If you have doubts, get rid of them now. Wazhma is the one. Wazhma is the greatest attorney, probably person you will ever meet. She took my case after I had consulted with 3 other lawyers who did not fit. I came to wazhma desperate, and she took my case after review. She is fierce in court and will blow your mind with thoroughness and ACTUAL care for your case. I value her time very much so. She is a great attorney and person. 1000/10 stars.

A Rock
Wazhma has represented me for many years during a very litigious divorce, involving young children, a family business, and disagreements between parties on almost every front. Her team supported me through counsel, high-stakes settlement negotiations, and multiple trials with calm, expertise, and a laser-focus on what gets results.
