    Mr. Saleem is one of the sharpest lawyers I have ever met in my life. He understands legal issues and is quickly able to find solutiions to problems. I would consider him a lawyer's lawyer. I have worked with him on very heavy Wall Street litigation and I trust him to handle any matter that comes in front of him. He is honest and straight foreward. He looks out for the clients and he is well respected by his fellow attorneys. I would not hesitate to refer a client to him.
