Highly recommend
My experience with Zeshan Khan was very positive. When we first consulted about my case he listened, explained the pros/cons and discussed strategic approach. I retained his services and was immediately relieved. He's extremely knowledgeable and was very responsive through the process, quickly replying to texts or emails. I also appreciated his honesty and compassion - he seemed to truly understand both sides of the case and worked with me to prepare as strong a position as possible. I appreciate how he led my family through a stressful situation, and am grateful for a positive outcome. I highly recommend him for any legal needs.

Mr.
Zeshan, was very friendly and knowledgeable and very straightforward with his consultation. I was very nervous about being served, he calmed my nerves very quickly. He gave me the most honest and concise advice I could have asked for and I am very lucky to have gotten a chance to speak to him. Highly recommend him if you are in need of help with litigating financial problems!

Zeshan Khan is a problem solver!!!!
I hired Mr. Khan the Friday before my Monday divorce trail date. He met with me to discuss my case on a Sunday (Mother’s Day no less!!!). He was very understanding and kind. I had no idea what to do, but he did! He walked me through my options, and helped me to choose my path wisely. I would recommend him for his outstanding humor in the face of sadness, and his ability to say what you need to hear (even if you don’t want to hear it). Thanks again! I’m freeeeeeeeeee!!!!!

Precise, methodical and practical
I’m glad I hired Zeshan to help resolve my divorce in a manner that was agreeable to both parties. My case was complicated by the fact the marriage happened in another country even though the divorce was initiated here. Zeshan was considerate, perceptive, and precise in his interpretations of law, and what was possible and what not. His perceptiveness, were evident in his ability to distill responses and identify the motivations behind them, as well as foresee what the respondent was thinking and wanted. He was also a great advisor and a soothing presence who helped calm my nerves when things weren't moving/stalling. And Most importantly, he helped me arrive at an economical solution for both parties, that minimized time, effort, cost and maximized peace of mind for all.

Excellent
Zeshan is a fantastic lawyer. I was referred to him by another lawyer. I was going through a tough divorce/custody battle. Though I was scared as hell to losing my daughter and being relocated, Zeshan made the process easy and comforting as much as he could. He's the person you want in your corner when your in the ring. Many would say lawyers are just in it for the money. True, it's a business, but I can guarantee that his clients come first. I've had lawyers before for other circumstances and never had one that made me feel my money was well spent. I actually can say we built a friendship through the process (maybe cause he's a Florida Gator as I am). But he's humble, intelligent, fiery and honest. He always responded to my emails or phone calls and if he wasn't available, then he would get back to me in a timely manner. I'm telling you people, if your looking for a lawyer you can trust and money well spent, look no further. It's a no brainer, his reviews says it all. I'll go back to him if need be. The outcome of case was beyond expectation. My daughter is not being relocated and the divorce was mutually satisfying on both ends. Thank you Zeshan and GO GATORS!

Very responsive and excellent services
Mr. Zeshan and his paralegal Colline were extremely helpful to get my divorce handled. Most of our communication was over email which was great as my schedule is very busy. They were literary responding within minutes to my questions and were providing advices that helped me choose the best options as part of the settlement. I would highly recommend their services to anyone seeking legal help.

Highly recommended
Zeshan came highly recommended and I arranged a consultation to discuss my rights in the dissolution of a long-term committed intimate relationship. From our first meeting, I felt very comfortable talking to Zeshan, and confident that I had made the right choice to contact him. As my case progressed, I had so many questions and he was always remarkably patient, answering in language I could understand, and making absolutely sure I understood the process. Zeshan is intelligent and well informed, he has a positive attitude, and I have the highest respect and appreciation for his professionalism. Because of Zeshan’s knowledge, passion, and dedication, my case has resulted in a fair and equitable judgement, and I am forever grateful for his commitment and support through this incredibly difficult time.

Excellent lawyer and communicator
Zeshan helped me reach a settlement for my divorce, and I was really happy with the result. He clearly knows the divorce area extremely well and is approachable, pragmatic, reassuring, professional, and has a great way of relating to people, including the other parties in the facilitation process. At the same time, he is very sharp in making arguments, anticipating the motivations of what the other party is planning, and made a clear recommendation on where he felt I should draw the line, which definitely ensured a great outcome in my case. He was also really patient and took his time to explain the consequences of the more intricate legal matters. Going through a divorce is such a depressing experience, but Zeshan made it a lot less stressful. Another important thing that's very reassuring: he's really fast in responding on email, phone, and text, and explains things clearly. I highly recommend Zeshan and will definitely use him again for any future legal needs.

An AMAZING Bankruptcy Lawyer!
I can tell you Zeshan has made the whole bankruptcy process a lot easier than I would have thought. Starting from the initial communication via phone, to the first meeting to go over the opening set of documents, and throughout all exchanges of communication via text/phone/email and in-person, Zeshan has been absolutely fantastic and very supportive. I ask a lot of technical questions and he answered every.single.question with a solid answer where I can see clearly without worry and thats a major plus in my book. It definitely helps that I was able to produce most documentation rather quickly and that's great because he moves fast...like, lightning fast. There is no messing around with him. Zeshan is on point, quick to respond, quick to deliver documents for signing, and quick to file with the court, but on the same note he is also very supportive, caring, and thinks fast with logic and thats unique in itself. Zeshan advised me of my options and cautioned me about moving too quickly and that I should wait because it could prove costly. I did wait a little while so that I was not liable for any condo HOA Dues after bankruptcy. When Zeshan contacted me that I was discharged and my debt has been wiped out, it was a major relief! He did not miss any deadlines and thats a major plus in my book. Overall, I highly recommend Zeshan to anyone who is considering bankruptcy. He is one of a kind.

Highly recommended
I found Zeshan through this website and contacted him based on the impressive reviews he had received. I needed to file a chapter seven and was nervous and scared to even go to the initial consultation. All of that tension and fear faded away as soon as I met Zeshan, he made me feel completely comfortable about my situation. It was that moment that I knew I had chosen the correct lawyer to handle my case. From then on he was energetic, responsive, knowledgeable, helpful, and positive. The rest of my case went smoothly with no hiccups, I definitely recommend Zeshan to anybody who needs to file for bankruptcy.

Energetic, Prompt, Affordable, Friendly, Honest, Knowledgeable and Excellent Attorney
Zeshan took up my divorce case. He was prompt in all his responses. With great listening skills, he exactly understood my case and documented all the affidavits in a timely and excellent manner. Zeshan brings a lot of energy, honesty, knowledge and experience to the table. He solved my case in the time frame we planned. Moreover, he was very affordable and friendly to talk to. I am extremely satisfied with the experience and recommend him any time. Any one can be assured to be in safe hands when Zeshan is representing them.

The BEST experience I have had with any attorney
I hope that you never need to talk to a lawyer...but if you do, I had a great experience with the Law Office of Zeshan Q. Khan. I haven't had to seek the advice of many lawyers, but when the big corporate former employer came for me, a year after leaving, I knew I needed help. After being served from my previous employer I was seeking an attorney to help with an employment/contract law matter. When I reached out to some close friends Zeshan Khan came up highly recommended multiple times. I contacted his office and immediately found Zeshan Khan to be a knowledgeable, professional and compassionate attorney. I knew that Zeshan was the perfect attorney to handle my case from the moment we spoke. He understood the severity of my situation and in very short order he had a plan and we agreed on a course of action. Mr. Khan’s research on the case law was current and we walked into the hearing prepared. Without his help, I never would have been able to stand up to my previous (corporate bully) employer. I was impressed with his depth of knowledge and his ability to get results. Throughout the entire process Zeshan Khan and his office was easy to get in touch with and always responded in a timely manner to my questions. He was thoughtful and thorough in his communication with me. He spoke like a normal person, very clear and always ensuring I understood the legal jargon what was going on. Zeshan Khan is knowledgeable, ethical, experienced lawyer. I highly recommend the Law Office of Zeshan Q. Khan, Pllc. to anyone who has a case needing civil litigation.

Zeshan was my attorney for my bankruptcy case. I never felt lost in the system because Zeshan and Colleen were always there to ease me and kept me well informed. I always bombarded them with emails, and they patiently responded to each of them. From the time I scheduled my appointment with Colleen to my initial meeting up to the closing of my case, I knew I was in good, capable hands. Zeshan is very honest and knowledgeable. I also love that this firm is very casual and friendly. I highly recommend this firm to those who are looking not only for professionalism but also a passion and commitment to helping others. Thank you Zeshan and Colleen for all your help! I will always be grateful.

Knowledgeable, Professional, and Personable Attorney
I needed a bankruptcy attorney and Zeshan was appointed to me through the King County Bar Association, so I had no previous knowledge of/experience with him. I was pleasantly surprised to find such a good attorney would devote some of his time to pro bono cases. Zeshan is pleasant and patient, is bright and knowledgeable, and his staff is competent and friendly. What began as a daunting and depressing ordeal for me was transformed into something made much easier because of the excellent work and positive attitudes of Zeshan and his team. I would highly recommend Zeshan Khan to anyone who is seeking a sharp, highly competent attorney who is also very easy to work with.

Fantastic Family Law Attorney!
I used Zeshan for consultation in representing myself pro se in my dissolution. He was more than willing to assist me. He sat and talked with me for however long I needed in order to get my answers. Let me just say, he knows his stuff. And is very kindhearted and welcoming. Divorce is a hard time and Zeshan did what he could to calm my nerves and help me problem solve. So many attorneys lack empathy to truly relate and understand where their clients are coming from. Not Zeshan. Had I had the funds, and needed, to hire an attorney for full representation, it would have been Zeshan. I worked with another attorney on limited representation during my dissolution and I wish that I would have started with Zeshan rather than the other person I worked with. I highly recommend him. And often refer him to others around me. Thank you again, Zeshan!

Difficult Divorce
Zeshan was my lawyer for my divorce. It was a difficult case in that it involved a third party and both sides actually lived out of state in Hawaii. Through the process Zeshan gave good legal advice on all aspects of the case, provided timely responses to all questions through email and via phone. He also let me dictate the manner/style of the divorce in that things that I wanted to happen he worked to make happen even if there was an easier way. Zeshan was professional the entire time and made the divorce process extremely easy for such a hard part of my life.

Zeshan is first rate!
Working with Zeshan was fantastic. Filing for bankruptcy is a difficult experience, and something no-one wants to experience. I never thought that I would be in the position to file for bankruptcy, but the collapse of the housing market left me in a position where bankruptcy was my only option. Zeshan made the experience as painless as possible. He was attentive and informative, and has the experience to provide sound guidance throughout the process. These are things I think we all look for in a lawyer. But the thing that makes Zeshan stand out to me is the way he treated me as a client. I felt as though I was being coached by a friend through a difficult time. He showed empathy toward a situation I was uncomfortable with and helped me to feel confident I was making the right decision. After being represented by Zeshan I can say that I trust in his ability and character and would wholeheartedly recommend his services to friends and family without question.

Sincere and Responsible Attorney
I feel grateful that my husband I contacted Zeshan for our bankruptcy case. Before we asked him to take care of our case we had a conference. He reviewed our situations and explained a few different possible solutions with good information that only lawyers who are specialized in this field could provide. After all my husband and I decided to file bankruptcy. From the beginning to the end he was always responsive to our inquiries. He is sincere and patient that we truly appreciate that he was there for us to go through the stressful time. He informed us what to expect for the every step in the process. When you pick a lawyer for any reason it is best to hire one who is not only knowledgeable but also responsive to your calls or emails. Zeshan is that kind of attorney, and we highly recommend his service.
