I have worked with Sayema since 2002 and have come to respect Sayema as one of the finest lawyers I know. She is diligent, strategic and knows how to get the best results for clients consistent with their needs and budget. She is professional and courteous with opposing counsel which helps avoid unnecessary costs that do not move the ball forward. She has represented Fortune 500 companies and mid-size firms and provides the same level of attention to all clients and cases. I am proud and fortunate to have her as my partner. You are in good hands with Sayema and Cabada & Hameed.
