smart lawyer
I contacted him regarding my employment case. I found him very smart with an excellent memory. He will fight for you. He evaluated my case and accepted. I went for a trip and he had a second thought about my case. Then he advised me to find a lawyer for other possible claims too. I contacted a couple of lawyers. Ultimately, the other lawyer followed the same strategy. If he accepts your case, sign the contract the same day. He is a great fighter.

Amazing Attorney
Ilir is such a wonderful and accomplished lawyer, that I have no words to describe. He took our case which was in limbo for 8 years when no other attorney would. He persevered and we won a very complex case at MCAD. He won all the appeals after we won the case at appeals and superior court. His knowledge of the law and his dedication is amazing. On top of all that he is such a nice and personal human being. Highly recommended , thank you again !!!

G.O.
I was referred to Mr. Kavaja by another attorney. Mr. Kavaja far exceeded my expectation! He was honest, professional, and very responsive. I was shocked at how detailed he was during his prep work. I would absolutely refer folks to Mr. Kavaja without hesitation! He is the best of the best!

Outstanding Attorney!!
Attorney Kavaja is one of the smartest and most hard-working individuals I have ever met. Working with Ilir through one of the hardest experiences of my life, was easily the best decision I made. He truly examined every detail and his compassion towards finding the truth and getting justice for the underdog speaks volumes. His knowledge and understanding of the law is exemplary and he is always extremely professional. His ability to communicate is extraordinary as he takes the time to explain complicated legal matters, so that I always understood the proceedings. I highly recommend Ilir if you need a lawyer to give you exceptional representation.

Skilled professional!
Ilir came highly recommended and it is no surprise why. He was attentive, thorough, professional and dedicated. I felt that these attributes, coupled with his expertise in employment law, were what led to a favorable outcome. Could not agree more with a previous reviewer that one can sleep well knowing Ilir is on the case. I highly recommended Kavaja Law!

Highly Recommend!!!
I was in need of an employment lawyer during the hardest time of my career. Shopped around quite a few and what made me and my family go with Mr.Kavaja was not only his urgency to our case but his commitment, his attention to detail, his active listening skills, his compassion and dedication to each case and client, his open and honesty about the issue and where we stood. Mr. Kavaja will take the time to explain to you and he will do anything he can to fight for the small fish in this world filled with hungry sharks. Mr. Kavaja kept us in the loop with every detail and where the case stood. My personal case was resolved within 3 months and everything was done electronically. It was the best decision I ever did hiring Mr Kavaja to fight for my rights as an employment lawyer. I would highly recommend you hiring Mr Kavaja if you are looking for someone that will do anything in their legal power to resolve your case. Good luck! Ina

Attorney Kavaja was amazing. It was evident that he cared about me, not just the outcome of the case. If you are looking for a lawyer to handle a complicated Employer issue, look no further. Attorney Kavaja is the one.

Superhuman Lawyer
Working with attorney Kavaja has been an absolute pleasure. He has been thoughtful and his communication is extremely fast and punctual. I would definitely recommend him to any other people looking for a quality, affordable lawyer. It’s very rare that you find a legal professional that takes care of you like family. If you are looking for a great lawyer look no further. He’s exactly the type of attorney that gets things done when I when you are stressed and need answers. I slept like a baby knowing that he was on the case. Thank you so much you superhuman lawyer!!!

Just Excellent
The case I had against be was completely bogus. Mr. kavaja was absolutely fantastic. Through my experience through this he's kept me in the loop and always had my best interests in mind. If there was a problem or a question, he contacted me right away to get things straightened out. 10/10 would DEFINITELY recommend. He's the only person so far who didn't just assume I was a criminal.

A Professional and Dedicated Attorney
I highly recommend llir Kavaja as an intelligent and skilled lawyer. I was desperately searching for a lawyer that would even take my case. llir listened compassionately,believed in me and took my case. He was extremely efficient, easy to work with and always available to me. llir is confident and will fight for you. He is someone you would most certainly want on your side. He was especially masterful in the art of persuasive settlement negotiation and came through for me in a major way. I am so grateful that I finally found an attorney that had my best interest and I could trust with one of the most difficult times in my life.

Efficient, clear, no BS
Ilir got the job done, was very clear about my case (no confusing or vague legalese), and was pleasant to work with. I’m very glad I retained him rather than an old school lawyer who would’ve likely taken much longer to get the work I needed completed.

Knowledgeable and professional -Ilir Kavaja
Ilir was very focused on my case from Day 1 and made me feel very comfortable. He was available to chat or text around the clock and took the time to explain proceedings in a language that made sense to someone without a law background. His knowledge of employment law was terrific and was extremely professional. I am happy I chose Ilir to represent me and will recommend his services to anyone.

Defense on Assault and Battery, and Disorderly conduct charges.
Attorney Kavaja was an excellent attorney throughout my case. He was very helpful from the very beginning in attaining all of the facts of the case and then setting up a one-on-one meeting with me in order to discuss options to pursue as potential outcomes. This was very helpful in putting my mind at ease because I knew he was doing everything in his power to represent me well and seek the best outcome for me. Attorney Kavaja was present at every single court date on time and ready to do his a great job. The hard work Mr, Kavaja exemplified when negotiating with the D.A. and his office truly made the difference in the result of my case, and it is something I will always remember and truly appreciate about him. If you are in need of great representation Ilir Kavaja is who you need to hire. I can say with assurance that he will always put his best foot forward and try to reach the best possible outcome for his clients.

"Great Lawyer "
Illar kavaja had represented me as my lawyer for a pending 2nd oui trial. So the case had been going on for 3 years and he fought and fought with the court system. I'm gonna be honest it wasn't an easy trial and case. He is definitely very knowledgeable of his profession and law. Straight shooter and always remindful of my trials and always answering my late text.. Even if it was late night question bothering me always replied and gave me the ease and lifted the weight of my shoulders. Always looking out for me as I caught another few cases during this case. Thanks again illar willing to help me out with the other cases plus the one he was already assigned to represent me and gave me a very nice rate. To sum all this up he filed for many motions and fought and fought with the courts for my innocence. Which he a few key motions which was very good towards my case. Honestly I was a little nervous when the court wanted to go to trial for this. I must say I was a little bit nervous and unsure of how this may all play out but when it came to the trial Mr Kavaja amazed me and was spot on and on point. He won a few key arguments and motions which I would of never known exist. I was actually amazed and very thankful to have him as my lawyer by myside. So all I have to say is he is very knowledgeable and a great lawyer and if I had to hire him over and over again I would very fair and straight and always gave me the best advice as my outcome. Thanks again illar for the help and I hope you all consider this great man as your legal representative

Immigration/ Deportation Issue
In 2015, I searched for immigration lawyers, called a number listed and was routed to Ilir Kivaja to leave a message. Within days Ilir Kivaja returned my called and asked to explain my issue. Instantly he asked to meet with me in his office to talk and go over the concern I was dealing with. When we met, he was very thorough and detailed about what he can be of assistance with if I hired him. Today I am very thankful for his services. Ilir Kivaja is very responsive, responsible, and honest about what he said he would do for me. He is highly professionally experienced and knows his work in this field.
