I had the unfortunate experience of being involved in an emotional lawsuit which lasted over 4 years. When I needed a probate lawyer, another of my lawyers recommended Shaheen Imami. Shaheen was unbelievably sympathetic, understanding, professional and informative from the beginning to the end. He is also very much at the top of his game and always well prepared for court. He knows his cases to cite and takes great pains to make himself heard before the court, while still maintaining his professional, respectful and honorable demeanor. He is a great judge of character, has a quick retort which is always right on the money, and he is passionate about his work and it shows! Whenever I called him, if he didn't answer, he immediately returned my calls and NEVER left me hanging. He is honest and forthright and always gave us his best. I would recommend him to anyone without a second thought. I definitely felt well taken care of with Shaheen on my side!
I felt that Shaheen was very understanding of my situation. He was very personal and easy to deal with.
1. Mr. Imami did not fight for our interest at all.
2. He also did not know our personal case. Every time he opened his mouth to state something, we, including the opposing attorney, would have to correct his information. .
3. Imami negotiated a deal that would have been the same as if we never went to court. During mediation, Imami negotiated an agreement that later proved not to protect our interest. Though he stated the day before that we would have to work in percentages, because we did not have the actual dollar amounts, the day of the mediation he negotiated with dollar amounts, costing us, his clients, over $150,000 because the amounts the estate attorney gave him the day of mediation was inaccurate.
4. Even thought Imami did not take the time to know the details of our case, he did not fight for our interest and he did not take the time to protect our interest, HIS FEES WERE OVER 4 TIMES THE OPPOSING ATTORNEY'S FEES.
