"Mr. Payab is an honest lawyer. He challenged my conventional view about lawyers and I believe that he will continue to do so. At this time, I am a student at USC and he spoke to me as if I were another professional. A lot of lawyers I tried to contact weren't taking me seriously, but Mr. Payab is very courteous and understanding. He is the type of lawyer, who will comfort you legally and emotionally to make sure he is doing the job. But also, taking care of the client's questions. He is the type of lawyer, you have to hire. Because I am certain that you won't regret this decision."
