  • John Henry Fisher

    I was fortunate to work with Shahzad in a potential case involving medical malpractice. In his initial case evaluation, Shahzad carefully ferreted out the key issues in the case. Even though we ultimately could not accept this referral, I was impressed by Shahzad's dedication to his client and his ability to spot the important issues in the case. In just my first dealing with Shahzad, it was clear that he put the client's interests over his own.
