I bought a condo in 2004 when real estate was on the rise. I saw the value of my condo go up $30,000+ the first number of years and felt really good about this real estate investment. Unfortunately in 2008/2009 the financial crash happened. The value of my condo dropped drastically to the point that I owed a lot more than what my place was worth (difference of 50,000+). I made multiple attempts to sell my condo to no avail. I didn't like the feeling of being financially stressed out and stuck with this 'underwater mortgage'.
After exhausting all of my options I decided to make an appointment with Sulaiman Law Group. I met with Ahmad and he explained to me that there's hope and that I have options. Ahmad was very detailed in explaining all of the options I had at my disposal. He established a path/plan to follow based on my personal financial situation. Based on his expert advice I decided to execute a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy plan. While my credit reports and scores took a hit in the bankruptcy process the end result was being able to break free of the 'underwater mortgage' and not being liable for the mortgage debt/property taxes. This has removed the financial stress and put me in the best financial position that I've ever been in my life. I'm able to breathe easy and fully enjoy my life again!
I also hired Sulaiman Law Group to provide post-bankruptcy PDL support to assist me in the process of rebuilding/repairing my credit reports and scores. This and the 720 Credit Score program have been great benefits/tools to guide me through the post-bankruptcy process.
To summarize I wanted to personally thank Ahmad and his professional, experienced, hard working, multitasking team (Charles, Christina, Dan, Elvia, Gina, Mara, Mohammed, Molly and Nasim) in guiding me towards financial freedom that I never thought was possible.

Ahmad was friendly and very helpful. I felt I came away with new knowledge and empowerment to handle my situation. I have a much better understanding of the law and my rights. Yes, he actually explained the law and how it works in terms and examples that the average person could understand. I would definitely recommend him to everyone! The best experience I have had with an attorney ever! Thank you Ahmad!

I owned a home that was supposed to be a "starter home" which I bought in 2000. As time passed, things changed and I got married. It was time to move. The home was small and the neighborhood became crime ridden. I called a realtor and was told I would be lucky to get $40,000 for the home I owed over $100,000 on. I heard the commercials for Sullaiman Law and was curious but apprehensive. We explored every option- selling, renting, short sale, staying, using a company to rent and sell. Nothing seemed to solve our problem. I met with Ahmed and was very impressed. My wife and I were at the end of our rope and we hired Sullaiman Law. I had some debt but was managing the payments. I have never missed a payment or been late and had good credit. I was given my options up front and decided to file bankruptcy to get out my under water mortgage. I had to file Chapter 13. We are now living in a brand new home we built. My monthly payments in my Chapter 13 are over $500 less than my minimum payments on my credit cards and loans were. I am paying my debtors 100% of what I owed so I have no guilt. I kept my car. Yes- my other home will be foreclosed on and my credit was impacted. The impact was minimal. The mortgage company will get the house I no longer wanted and couldn't sell and I won't owe a dime and don't have a tax liability. My debt will be gone in 5 years at a much lower monthly payment than I was making. All my questions are answered. My emails are responded to. I am happy, comfortable, in a new home in a nice neighborhood and will be debt free in several years. Sullaiman Law even has someone to review your credit report and ensure that it is accurate. Charles Magerski is the attorney handling my case and he has been attentive and professional. I wish I would have called them years ago. If you have an underwater mortgage and need to get out of it, call them. Let go of your fears and do what you know you will have to anyways. These guys are awesome and know what they are doing. You won't be sorry.

Delivering Excellence is the first thing that came to mind when I had to think of a title for this review. I came to Ahmad Sulaiman a little over 2 years ago with a complicated real estate dilemma and sat with him and his colleagues for a consultation. Their recommendation and advise was not what I thought it would be but their rational and logic for it gave me the confidence to trust their guidance and direction. I took their advise ad over the past two years, not only did everything work out the way they anticipated it would, it has even been better. Why do I say delivering excellence? Many reasons...including but not limited to the following: They laid out a strategy with details and explanations, prepared he plan, execued it and were always available to me for answers to my many questions. My real estate problems are gone and I have peace of mind, security and am on a firm foundation for the future. Sulaiman law group knows the consumer finance industry, protects its clients and delivers excellence. I am grateful for the collective work Ahman and his team have done for me and I recommend them to anyone in need.

I met with Mr. Sulaiman to discuss a number of issue with my foreclosure, potential deficiencies and debt on a second mortgage. If you are facing any of these issue, PLEASE do yourself a favor and make an appointment to speak with this man - even if you have spoken to other attorneys. I met with other attorneys & it seemed like all they wanted to do was pressure me into signing a retainer to file for Chapter 13. Not Mr. Sulaiman, he listened to my situation, explained my options, and told me not to think about BK - it was not necessary. He knows the laws & can offer options and guidance. It is obvious that this man is in profession to help people and not to fill his pockets. He is passionate about the law and about helping the client and that reflected in our meeting. He entire staff is very professional and make do their best to make you feel very comfortable (Thank you Carmen - you are aces in my book). It is my pleasure to give Mr. Sulaiman and his firm a positive review.

Ahmad made a terrific impression on us and started arming us with information from the start of our first consultation. He took the guesswork out of our bankruptcy and established a clear plan to move forward with. He is a leader and his team respects and supports him. During our first consult, he pulled his colleagues into the room to review options and discuss strategies specific to our situation. Not only did we feel that we were going to be supported by a competent team, they delivered!

Kudos to Ahmad and his professional , hardworking, multitasking Team! My husband stumbled upon this firm late one night as he was was searching on Google. I am a hard sale and a skeptic, however once we drove many miles to get to Oakbrook and listen to Mr. Sulaiman patiently explain the process and how his firm could help me , I was sold. Everyone was super patient, knowledgeable, and professional. Indeed masters at their craft. The service was very personable and made me feel like my case wasn't just another caseload. Elvia, Christina, and Nathan were my dream team on the front end. Now, less than 1 year later, I have the testimony that my case has been discharged by the court. Ahmad's team still wasn't done with me. Unlike some firms, these guys didn't see me to the door and leave me on my own. Nasim began to explain a great post program (PDP) designed to help me get a fresh start. After a full, concise and thorough job of sharing the details of the program, I immediately enrolled. Stay tuned....................

Ahmad Sulaiman is one of the most professional, results orientated attorneys I have ever worked with. If you are looking for a lawyer that you can count on, that will treat you with respect and will help you understand your options and make sense of the legal system, then I recommend Ahmad Sulaiman.
The legal process can be very daunting. Over the years I have retained lawyers in this and other states for the various life, business and property issues that we all face, unfortunately, with mixed results. When you, and those that depend on you, are faced with the very real prospect of living with an unfavorable court decision, you need your lawyer to protect your interests as if they were his own, to understand your fears, and give you the best representation possible; Ahmad Sulaiman is that lawyer.
Ahmad is the person you call with a problem and feel relieved when you hang up the phone. He cares about his clients and he cares about his reputation, Ahmad Sulaiman is my lawyer

Having experienced the help and service from Sulaiman Law Group, I was extremely pleased and satisfied. Their greatest characteristic was their experience in dealing in cases which was very reassuring. In the initial consultation, Ahmad was extremely knowledgeable, listened carefully, assessed my situation and spent all the time necessary with me. After I decided to move forward with my filing, I worked solely with Atty. Nathan Volheim. Nathan was experienced, extremely knowledgeable and aware of the legal aspects in my filing type and county and was always reassuring. Nathan was always quick to respond to either email or phone call and in addition, pleasant to work with. In the end, my case was confirmed (success) and I could not be happier. They are a tad expensive - but worth it when you receive a team of experienced, qualified, reassuring and helpful team on your side. I recommend Sulaiman Law Group.
