Jospeh Ahmad was recommended to me by a co-worker of my wife's as I went through a challenging separation from my employer. I met with Mr. Ahmad before my separation and he was very attentive and made me comfortable in my choice of coming to him. He agreed to represent me. After I separated from my job, I would request contact with Mr. Ahmad for weeks and months on end with no response; and even when I did get a response, it would be from his paralegals, not him.
When I finally was able to meet with Mr. Ahmad, I gave him the opportunity to send me on my way -- I said I realized he was busy and I was not a high profile, high money case. He apologized and said he would still like to represent me. Mr. Ahmad then advised me to file a complaint with the EEOC of Texas as a preliminary step against my former employer in an attempt to demonstrate we were serious and that a settlement would be in their best interests.
Time continued to pass and when we were within a month of my deadline to file a lawsuit (following the EEOC investigation), I began to frequently contact Mr. Ahmad's office asking what our next steps should be. When I finally heard back, it was again from a paralegal, who advised me that Mr. Ahmad was dropping me as a client and would not represent me any further. This was approximately ten days before my filing deadline. Now living across the country, I had nowhere near enough time to contact a new attorney, have them agree to represent me, share my backstory AND get a lawsuit filed in time. As a result, I was left without any recourse.
I decided to consult with Mr. Ahmad based on extensive online research. Upon the initial consultation it was very obvious that he is extremely knowledgeable on employment law. What made this an easier choice for me, was his professional manerism, I knew right away that this was the person I wanted to represent me in court.
i called this attorney they want to charge me $750.00 for the first initial meeting . Forget it .
