Family law attorney Bobby Khalajestani is sharp, focused and responsive to the needs of his clients. He has dedicated his practice to advocating both in and out of the court room for his family law clients. Bobby’s philosophy is to prepare for litigation while looking for each opportunity to resolve a matter so long as it reaches his client’s objectives. This approach does not mean that each case goes to trial or even a court proceeding – however, in order to resolve any issue, whether through settlement or litigation, each client must be apprised of the cost/benefit analysis that only a trial lawyer can provide. This is the value that Bobby brings to each of his cases.
The flip side of this coin is the personal and emotional costs that each client may go through in their family law action. Bobby is motivated to help shoulder that burden by not only counseling each client on their legal matters but supporting them through the maze of family law procedures, dealing with opposing counsel, and guiding clients on what they can expect from the opposing side during the pendency of their matter.
Bobby has been recognized as one of the 10 best attorneys for exceptional and outstanding client service by the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys in 2019.
