Paul Abraham is a very kind, knowledgeable, and patient attorney. He has represented me, and various family members and friends, on a variety of matters. He frequently represents attorneys and coworkers, which shows you how trusted he is in the legal community. Paul is also very honest and ethical in his billing, which is super rare in the legal field. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TO ALL!
Mr. Abraham is a superb attorney. From the moment we scheduled our consultation with his outstanding, compassionate assistant Annemarie, I knew we would be in good hands. First, Paul listened carefully to our case, then provided several options explaining in detail what each one would entail and what can be expected. We trusted his recommendation and it was the best decision.
Thank you so much Paul for your advice and your expertise. You are a kind, polished, honorable person with the highest integrity. That said, if we ever need legal advice in the future, we will always start with a call to PJI Law PLC.
Best to you in the New Year!

Attorney Paul Joseph Abraham, PJI Law, PLC, was retained to resolve a dispute I had with an automobile insurance company involving an automobile accident. I was injured in the accident and my vehicle was “totaled” (destroyed). A claim representative from the offender’s insurance compony contacted me and appeared to give assurance that the insurance company would make full restitution for my destroyed auto and pay all medical expenses related to injuries I received in the accident.
After more than six months of negotiating and haggling over medical payments the claim representative for the insurance company presented me with an Agreement and Release document to sign. This document appeared to be unreasonable and unfavorable. It was clear that once I signed the document I would relinquish my negotiating rights and could conceivably be denied fair and proper medical compensation. I felt my hands were tied--I was at an impasse. Subsequently, I retained attorney Paul Joseph Abraham, PJI Law, PLC.
Within a reasonable time, Mr. Abraham resolved the dispute. I was very impressed with his depth of understanding and knowledge of the law, and I was quite pleased with the outcome. Throughout the process he kept me informed, his fees were very fair and reasonable, and the financial settlement exceeded my expectations. Without reservations, I would highly recommend Attorney Paul Joseph Abraham to anyone needing legal council or legal services.
I am glad I found Paul who was recommended by the civil court yo help me with a problem with a former tenant in Fairfax he was very helpful in settle and solved the problem without any inconvenience. Many thanks
Mr. Abraham was referred to me by a close friend for a legal matter I needed help with. Setting up the appointment was easy and I went in for a consultation. Mr. Abraham is relatively young but it was immediately obvious that he possessed a sharp legal mind as he analyzed the different options available to me. In addition, I never felt rushed and he seemed genuinely concerned with my matter. He exuded old school values of reliability, morality and courtesy while at the same time demonstrating a modern and forward-thinking analytical mind. Throughout the whole process of concluding my legal issue successfully, I truly felt that my case was being handled by a family member and not an attorney I had just met. Finally, Mr. Abraham's rates were extremely reasonable and fair. As a result, Mr. Abraham earned my admiration, respect and patronage for life.
Thank you Paul.
I was very fortunate to have crossed paths with Paul Ibrahim. He represented and did work for me twice. Once for my divorce and again later on another issue. I liked everything about Paul, but especially the fact that he was easy to communicate with and talk to. I always had a good feeling that he was looking out for my interests. He was always well prepared and did what he said he was going to. I would highly recommend him. JM in Vienna, VA
I fully recommend Paul. He took the time to fully explain the nuances of my situation and the consequences of the actions we decided to take. He also worked closely with another lawyer to make sure everyone was on the same page. He will take the time to understand your case and recommend the best course forward.
I worked as a consultant for a defense contractor for one week, less than 5 business days, in 2010. We parted ways when I was offered a full-time position closer to my hometown around the same time. I found out a year later, in 2011, that the firm continued to deposit money into my bank account, even after executing a formal exit process. The letter they sent me was very aggressive and threatened to take legal actions if I don't return the funds immediately.
It was a large sum of money and at the time I was not in the habit of frequently checking my bank account. What made matters worse is the distance and location of my financial institution: the closest federal credit union was over 25 miles away and located in the basement of a high security facility.
Upon receiving the letter, I reached out to a friend who referred me to Paul. Paul stepped in to protect me from all the aggressive and intimidating communication, all I had to do was forward the information to Paul for him to respond. Paul kept me abreast of all the details, educated me on the available options at every step, gave me his recommendation, and allowed me to choose the next steps for myself. I really felt like we were a team even though he did all the work.
After months of negotiations, we settled on a payment I was pleased with. I mailed Paul the check and he mailed it to the firm with final correspondence. They have since not cashed the check - it has been 3 years.
Since the final correspondence, I closed that chapter and moved on with my life. To my surprise, in January of 2014, I receive a beautiful holiday card from Paul asking how I was and if there were any updates. I responded and asked him to keep in touch via email. Paul emailed me a couple of weeks ago and gave me a friendly update of his whereabouts and explained that he will be sending me a check for the funds remaining from my retainer. This just speaks to Paul's honesty and integrity years after handling my case.
Paul's expertise generated a successful outcome. There is no way I could have gone through that process on my own or replicated the same results. He was very kind, patient, thorough and always communicated with a sense of realism that helped keep me grounded.
Paul assisted me with a business transaction, including the extremely thorough review of a purchase agreement, as well as a commercial lease. He caught issues that others had missed, and guided me through negotiating those matters and to a final agreement. During what otherwise would have been a stressful and hectic time, Paul was always knowledgeable, responsive, accessible, and up to minute on my transaction. His hourly work is extremely efficient and the total was even below his estimate. I have no other legal needs in the near future, but having a reliable go-to attorney ready in case of need gives me sincere peace of mind as I run my business.
Mr. Ibrahim is absolutely the best attorney I've had the pleasure of doing business with. He is very knowledgeable, responsive, and caring. I highly recommend him.
