“My best reward is the satisfaction my clients share about their journey through the family courts. To hear from my clients, months or years later about their current happiness is extremely fulfilling.”

With nearly 20 years of experience in Family Law, Reza Golesorkhi is recognized as one of a handful of elite divorce lawyers in the Washington Metropolitan Area. He has successfully resolved many notable and complex divorce cases.
