Ali Parvaneh and Robert Babak Sabahat run this "law firm", better described as a back alley slime shop. Look these people up on better business bureau. They screwed up my loan modification, and then screwed up my personal injury case, and ended up paying some of my damages. People it does not get much worse than Sabahat and Parvaneh. Sabahat also acts as secretary and serves on the boards of 2 undercapitalized shell companies. Don't fall into their trap; these are really nasty characters who are bound to cause you grief.

    Who is Mr. Or Mrs. Madison? Who is Harbor? Ali Parvaneh and Babak Sabahat run this slimy 2 person barbershop of a "law firm". Both Parvaneh and Sabahat are street Iranians who went to bottom tier law schools as a second career, did loan mods, and slimy family law and personal injury cases. In fact anything where they could plunder a little money. They are violating state and federal rules by using bogus names for their law practice to appear wasp. I suppose they are ashamed of being Iranian. Their biggest problem is that they don't know civil procedure, and they hire out inexperienced and poorly managed contract lawyers at 40 dollars per hour. This is a case of "you get what you pay for". My advice is be careful doing anything with these two slime balls. Ask to see what their former clients say. Most of their former clients are not too pleased, and have sued them. Of course sometimes Ali and Babak sue their clients for alleged fees. Either way, most of the time things don't end well.

    Mr. Hector Salazar's comments are filled with false statements. Madison Harbor attorneys were retained by Mr. Salazar and his partners to represent them in a business dispute matter. Madison Harbor has never handled a loan modification or a personal injury matter for Mr. Salazar. Madison Harbor attorneys have not represented Mr. Salazar since 2008, in any capacity.
    In 2008, when Mr. Salazar refused to pay his legal bills, Madison Harbor terminated its representation and demanded that Mr. Salazar find a substitute attorney. After many unsuccessful and informal attempts to collect the unpaid bills, in 2011, Madison Harbor brought an action against Mr. Salazar and his partners for unpaid legal bills (Orange County Superior Court Case No. 30-2011-00457480). In retaliation, Mr. Salazar posted his complaint on this website, riddled with false and defamatory statements. In 2012, Madison Harbor obtained a judgment against Mr. Salazar, totaling approximately $165, 000. Mr. Salazar attempted to defend himself before the court. However, the court rejected his frivolous arguments.
    Contrary to Mr. Salazar’s statement that Mr. Parvaneh and Mr. Sabahat “run” Madison Harbor, and his implication that Madison Harbor is a two-man firm, Mr. Sabahat and Mr. Parvaneh are two of four partners. In addition, there are four other Madison Harbor associate attorneys, and three of counsel attorneys, for a total of eleven attorneys. Moreover, Mr. Salazar’s statement regarding Mr. Sabahat serving “on the boards of 2 undercapitalized shell companies, ” is also blatantly false.
    As to Mr. or Ms. “Gfouhd, ” Madison Harbor cannot comment as to its relationship, if any, with this individual, but if he or she identifies him or herself, the firm will gladly provide an explanation as to any representation of this individual. With respect to the statements regarding Madison Harbor attorneys handling family law, personal injury, and loan modification cases, Gfouhd is correct in that Madison Harbor does provide legal services in these areas, including some real estate services. Madison Harbor avoids loan modification services. Over the last four years, the firm has provided loan-related services to very few clients. Less than 1% of the firm's services relate to loan modification.
    Madison Harbor is experienced and has had regular success in personal injury and family law matters; yet these practice areas are only two of many practice areas offered by Madison Harbor, which generally include the following: Civil Litigation; Real Estate; Employment; Business Organization, Reorganization, and Planning; Commercial Transactions; Bankruptcy; Business and Corporate Disputes; Unfair Competition; Franchise; Product Liability; Consumer Law; Estate Planning and Probate; Immigration; and Criminal Law. In addition, due to Madison Harbor attorneys’ extensive trial experience, the firm is often hired by other attorneys to serve as trial counsel.
    Any allegation that Madison Harbor is violating state or federal laws is false and defamatory. Madison Harbor complies with all state, federal, and local laws, and is in full compliance with California State Bar Rules. Over the past fourteen years, Madison Harbor has been sued by only a handful of clients, including Mr. Salazar. Every one of these actions proved to be meritless and unsuccessful. The vast majority of Madison Harbor’s clients are referred by an existing client of the firm. Generally, due to the wide array of practice areas offered by the firm, Madison Harbor maintains long-lasting relationships with its clients.
    As to Mr. or Ms. Roniie Block48930, again, if this individual wishes to identify him or herself, Madison Harbor will be happy to comment on its representation, if any, of this individual.
    Madison Harbor is committed to providing quality services to its clients. The firm encourages any client who may be dissatisfied with Madison Harbor’s services, to contact the firm in an effort to resolve the matter - Tel: 949-756-9050, Fax: 949-756-9060, Email:

    Yes, Ali Parveneh no Robert Sabahat are the owners of Madison Law aka Madison Harbor ALC in Irvine CA. They were both found guilty of Malpractice on 12/3/2017 by a unanimous jury decision of 12-0 in Judge Pete Wilsons Orange County court district C15. They were found liable goof Malpractice in the amount of $1.7 million. They will appeal the decision to the crooked Judge who is aligned with their business interests. Sad and awful!!

    Again and again, you could sue me, take me to whatever court you want, Mohammad Reza Ghods, his wife Roya, and their sons', Arash have frauded The Feds on their immigration status, Roya, obtained her visa from Turkey along Arash in 1984, none of the conditions required in The Amnesty applied to them, they lied, and fabricated the facts, Roya and her husband Mohammad Reza Ghods, taught Arash later who was a child, then how to lie, for adjusting his status, later, Mike Ghods, Mohammad Reza Ghods obtained his last visitor Visa to enter The US, before The Amnesty from London .Telling the people the truth is not Defamation Of Character, but doing your Law Abiding duty as a, US Citizen, frauding The Feds in this manner is punishable by Prison, Cash Punishment and by implication Deportation .Ghaffar Hedayyatti, knew all along what Mohammad Reza Ghods was doing in order to obtain his immigration status, Again and again Mike Ghods has frauded The Feds, and people should know about it, aperson defames someone whe he or she lies about him, not telling the truth.

    Mike Ghods met Ghaffar Hedayyatti in D.C area in a party, when Roya left Mike Ghods, because she wanted basically to leave Iran, and Mike Ghods was not doing well financially at that point, with their child Arash she went to Fl, he, Ghods moved to Ca to Orange County opening a business, calling Ghaffar he convinced him to come over, Ghaffar didso, and saw Mike could make good money there, so went to DC, finished his business and moved to LA area, Ghods did not have a Green Card, Ghaffar, knew this all along, when Ghods was in the process of frauding The US gov, Roya came from Florida to turn in his son Arash to him, she had found a boyfriend in FL, and also, was looking forward to make money out of her divorce with Ghods, she even filed for the divorce, Ghods who was expecting the move, had put everything under Ghffars name, Roya realizing she has been checked had no choice but coming back, realizing also, Ghods was doing good financially and she wasnot getting anything she came back to him, of course Ghods forced her to sign a prenuptial, in case if she wants to leave she willnot get anything, and also forced her to fraud the Feds on her request for amnesty, she seemingly did it a day before the deadline, in INS Office, near Habor BLV office of Ghods business These are facts Mr.Gardner.I am sure you are proud to represent these kinds of people.Once, because of his experience with his wife, he told a relative, if a person doesnot have money his wife leaves him, .After all he had a first hand experiance.
