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.
Paul has assisted me and members of my family with various issues throughout the years. We are all very impressed and very grateful for his services. He spent a lot of time with us and answered all of our questions throughout the process. We all highly recommend him to anyone seeking representation!!
