    I have had the good fortune to have known Dilip since law school. I have worked with him on cases and was very impressed with his diligence, intelligent and excellent work product. I often refer those charged with crimes and Dilip always does a wonderful job for them. Needless to say, I fully endorse and recommend Dilip.
