Residency card
I contacted the office of Mr. Quadeer in order to replace my residency card. I was given the timeline and required fees during the consultation. I accepted and contracted the office to replace my residency card, myself not being versed in the bureaucratic channels I would need to navigate for such a procedure. In due time I received the card according to the timeline specified at the beginning of my case, and with no fees above the initial agreement. I am completely satisfied with both the professionalism and efficiency of Mr. Qadeer and his fellow professionals. I feel that I have gotten the best service possible from his office. I would rate the resolution of my case to be an unequivocal A+.

Amazing lawyer !
I hired Omar Qadeer to represent me in a child custody case. In a time when I as the most stressed Ive been in life. Omar and his team helped make me feel soo much better. They always gave me advice, always picked up the phone , they did everything they could to insure I was ok and satisfied. They helped build up my case and always kept me updated, never made me feel like I was unaware of what was going on . And finally on the day of the court, from the moment Omar walked in till the moment we left, Omar talked to me like we were long time friends, he got me everything I asked for , and overall I was 100% satisfied with the level of service I received from him and his crew! he will be my lawyer for life if I ever needed one again. If anyone wants a great lawyer, I definitely recommend him.

Successful Immigration Process
The Office of Omar Kareem Qadeer handled my wife's Immigration needs with integrity, kindness, foresight, and expertise. Endri was especially pleasant and patient with us throughout this process.

A great divorce attorney and law firm.
Omar successfully represented me for my divorce case at Middlesex County Superior Court. He is very knowledgeable about all the facets of South Asian ( Hindu ) marriage laws and represented me well in the court. Shahab ( associate attorney) also helped me a lot to understand the step-by-step process of court proceedings. Great service and impressive follow-ups. They never got irritated or annoyed on any questions instead went out of the way to address my concerns. Definitely recommended !!

Expungement
I was recently involved in a situation that had me arrested under a misunderstanding. I could not afford jail time and it would have been financially devastating as well. So I desperately sought out legal assistance and Omar Qadeer was wiling to work with me throughout the entre case. It was a matter of being in the wrong place at the wrong time and if I didn't seek out Omar's help I'm sure I'd be sitting in a jail cell right now. Omar managed to prove my innocence and to have the entire case expunged as well. I cannot describe how thankful I am for Omar's constant help and constant communication during the course of this case. Definitely 5 out of 5 star work done by Qadeer Law.

Fantastic Attorney
Omar helped me with a very complicated case regarding immigration. I had been to several lawyers but I felt like none really cared for me. I got a free consultation from Omar and after that, I knew I had to retain him. He efficiently handled my case and the issue was resolved within a few weeks! Very good lawyer and truly cares about clients!

American citizenship
From the moment I when for a free consultation until the day I got my American citizenship the services was excellent. They keep you informed with the process of the case with phone calls and emails. very detailing emails with copy of every singe document they send to Immigration. They make this process very smooth and the most important stress free. They are very professional people all the time. I recommend them 100%. You are not going to regret they services.
