    • I recommend Samiya Mir.
    • I hired Samiya 1-3 years ago.
    • Samiya handled my Employment / Labor matter.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    I have been Simi's colleague at a major corporate law firm, hired her as outside counsel for corporate and employment matters, referred other lawyers and potential clients to her, and finally, sought her counsel personally. In all my interactions with Simi over several years, especially as her client, I have found her to be an extraordinarily responsive attorney who has a diverse background and is well suited to help corporate and individual clients alike. She is well versed in the law and stays current. I have found her to be particularly helpful on labor and employment matters with a practical and nuanced approach. Simi is a staple in my professional rolodex and I look forward to working with her again!

    • I recommend Samiya Mir.
    • I hired Samiya 1-3 years ago.
    • Samiya handled my Contracts / Agreements matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Ms. Mir helped me update my client contract. It turned out I was missing several important clauses. She helped me add those as well as refining some of the language I was already using. She was great to work with on the project. I'm always very uncomfortable dealing with areas outside my field of expertise and Ms. Mir alleviated my worries completely. I felt totally comfortable giving and getting feedback throughout the process. Now my contract is much more thorough, which protects both myself and my clients better.

    I was in a business dispute with my former company and Simi advocated aggressively on my behalf. She was extremely conscientious, smart, knowledgeable, and was able to resolve the case without me spending a lot in legal fees. I would highly recommend Simi.

    • I do not recommend Samiya Mir.

    Forgot my appointment, even after asking me to come by her office. Her priority seems to be to ask me for more money, even after no progress was made with the previous money. She was not detail orientated, so I had to keep explaining my situation over and over.
    At the end,I switched to a different lawyer who understood my situation after one explanation and was able to win my case in court and get a settlement.

      Lawyer Comment:

      We're sorry you had a bad experience with our firm. This matter does not sound familiar, and we strive for the utmost client satisfaction in every case. We believe we are upfront and clear in communicating with our clients regarding their cases, our fees, and our appointments. We charge less than the larger firms, however, we are usually unable to take litigations on a contingency fee basis and believe we are transparent about our fee structure from the first consultation. Please feel free to contact me directly to discuss any further specific concerns.

    Ms. Mir is an excellent Lawyer. We are a medium-size financial firm with a broad set of needs. She has been helping us for three years with projects ranging from tough contract negotiations to the development of our employee handbook. She is very detail-oriented, a creative thinker and works hard to represent our best interest all the time no matter how big or small the issue at hand. She is very trustworthy and fair in her fees compared to larger firms that probably wont give us the same level of service.
