Linda Wingfield – Northern Virginia
“Azadeh Malek has been a wonderfully refreshing change to the legal system. She went completely out of her way and was always available to help my Son and his daughter resolve some stressful legal issues. It was completely obvious she cares and was not just fulfilling her duties, that is really difficult to find anymore. Thank you Azadeh!”


Diane McCarty – Northern Virginia
“Azadeh Malek is the guardian ad lidem assigned to a very important child in my life. She has been the best advocate for the child anyone could ask for. She goes above and beyond what you would expect and is more dedicated than you could imagine. If you ever need someone to fight for your child, this is the woman you want on their side.”


Chris Wingfield – Northern Virginia
“Azadeh Malek is absolutely the best guardian ad litem to ever exist on this planet. She takes the time to do actual home visits despite Covid-19. She is very dedicated to her role and is very very recommended by me. It has been a very tough several years and have had at least 3 different G.A.L’s and she is by far the absolute best. If you have the opportunity to have her on your child’s side you won’t regret it!”


Dominique Best – Northern Virginia
“Azadeh Malek has been amazing in helping our family during this difficult time. Her knowledge and compassion is unparalleled. We are truly blessed to receive her help.”


Justin Combs – Northern Virginia
“We had a very complex civil case which was tied to a criminal case and we needed an attorney who could navigate both areas. Azadeh Malek was recommended to us by another attorney and we are so glad we decided to hire her. Azadeh effectively represented our interests and provided us with strategic options. She understood both criminal and civil law, was prepared, and worked well with all parties involved. This is what we were expecting when we initially hired her. What we didn’t expect was Azadeh’s dedication to our cases. She was amazing! She was honest with us and invested in the outcome. I have worked with many other attorneys, and Azadeh was their equal with regard to knowledge, legal theories, and court room eloquence, but she FAR exceeded the rest in terms of heart. Again, she was amazing!”


Steve Philips – Northern Virginia
“Azadeh Malek is a great attorney and truly fights for her clients. Could not have asked for a better lawyer to take on my case. Highly Recommend.”


V St – Northern Virginia
“We have had a wonderful experience with Azadeh Malek. She has been working with my family as a GAL for almost 2 years now and it is easy to see that she genuinely cares for her clients and goes above and beyond to make sure that they are protected and safe. If you want someone who will go above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that the families she works with feel heard, respected, and understood, then she is the one to go to. Being in court is always difficult, but when there is someone who genuinely cares for your child and makes sure their best interests are represented it makes the process just a little bit easier.”


Peggy Charles – Northern Virginia
“Azadeh Malek is one of the best GAL’s I have had. She goes above and beyond to ensure the well being and safety of the child. She listens to what you have to say and answers every question honestly without beating around the bush. She has had sleepless nights talking to my granddaughter through text to ensure she was okay mentally and physically. She has helped my granddaughter emotionally, physically and mentally. I could not ask for a more kind, sympathetic and caring person for my granddaughter. She will definitely not disappoint you.”


Devon & Evan – Northern Virginia
“Azadeh is incredible to work with! She really cares about the work, and that comes through in everything she does.”


Towanna Burrous – Northern Virginia
“Thank you Azadeh for bringing clarity and support to a challenging situation.”


Angela Marie – Northern Virginia
“I have shared my utmost gratitude to Ms. Azadeh Malek for the positive impact and role she’s had on my family’s life, but no amount of words can ever truly express or show her just how thankful I am or how important and essential she is for our children.

“If you find yourself in the unfortunate position of being in Family Court, I cannot express enough how fortunate you will be if the Judge appoints Ms. Malek as your child’s Guardian Ad Litem. She perfectly exemplifies one who is in their profession for all the right reasons; someone who truly stands by and is passionate about ensuring the advocacy and protection of our children. She is a blessing from God and is absolutely meant to be an Advocate Attorney in her lifetime.

“She is personable, gentle, and a genuine, kind-hearted human being. Despite being a professional attorney, the moment she met my son, she shifted gears and the child within her surfaced which brought him immediate comfort and trust. Her interactions and communication weren’t forceful or interrogatory in the slightest — she genuinely wanted to connect, engage, and establish a friendship with my son to ensure he was comfortable in opening up with his heartfelt thoughts, opinions, wants and desires. She could have made the visits short, but she stayed just to continue playing and hanging out with him. He connected with her so deeply and enjoyed being around her, so much so, that he made it a point that the next visit was planned before she left the house. After their visit, he couldn’t stop talking for days about how much fun he had with her and was wanting me to text her to ensure and confirm he’d see her again.

“I could honestly go on for days speaking about how amazing this woman is. You can either agree or disagree with the outcome of her recommendations in Court but either position, you having any opinion of her, good or bad, means she’s doing her job well in focusing on the needs and best interests of your child/ren, not you. Your child is in the most capable of and good hands with Ms. Azadeh Malek — 110%.”
