I have known Suren since law school. He is a superb attorney and a great person. Like many other attorneys he is intelligent and knowledgeable, but his personality and character is what really sets him apart from other attorneys. As an individual he is compassionate, reliable, honest, and hard working. For this reason, I recommend Suren without hesitation or reservation.
