Ms. Raheen is an intelligent, aggressive, and experienced family law attorney. She zealously advocates for her clients, but is willing to seek settlement when possible. She has a common sense approach to her practice and is easy for clients to work with. I highly recommend Ms. Raheen.
Client Reviews
Fahim K. November 1, 2023
Horrible Client/Customer Service One of the worst experiences I have ever had dealing with a divorce case. I waited to see if they would actually follow through with their promises before writing a review and I am glad I waited. They are willing to be helpful as long as they are collecting money from you and as soon as the case file is closed, they treat you horribly. I have spent almost $20,000.00 with Raheen family law to finalize a divorce case and we asked for a little help after the case file was closed to help remove the divorced member from the household, which was in the contract, and they have told us there is nothing they can do because they are no longer collecting any money from us. All we asked is for them to Walk across the street to the court house and request to finalize the details in the contract. We specifically asked to make sure Raheen would help remove the divorced party and make sure the money owed would be collected. For a client to spend almost $20,000.00 and be treated like this is horrible and I will be sure to let everybody know about their practices.
