couldn't ask for more
Ms. Shah represented me in a divorce recently and her expertise, empathy, and communication were exceptional. She strategically handled my case, negotiated effectively, and delivered great results. Highly recommended!

Extremely methodical and well put together
Ms. Shah handled my landlord/tenant matter where the tenant owed me a significant amount in back rent, late fees, damages, etc. Ms. Shah carefully and successfully retrieved all money that was owed to me from the tenant with precision and attentiveness. It is very seldom as a landlord to get all the money that was owed from the tenant but with Ms. Shah's expertise she made an incredibly frustration process very simple. She continuously followed up with the other side, answered all my questions and explained why and how we will proceed so that I understood. I highly recommend Bhavini to anyone who is having similar legal difficulties. I will be using her services again.

She was excellent!
Bhavini Shah did a great job on my closing for my home. I was a first time home buyer and was very nervous about the process; Ms. Shah took the time to walk me through the process and answered all my questions promptly and explained anything that I was not clear about. I would definitely recommend to those purchasing a home, she will make you feel at ease and not so stressed ( we all know buying a home is extremely stressful). Again, she did a great job!

A lawyer with a perfect blend of caution and agression
Bhavini handled my divorce case where the other party was asking a huge amount as alimony . Prior to her, I had hired another attorney who has a very big reputation , but somehow I was not happy with his services. He advised me that in the best case, I will have to settle for half the amount the other party was asking .Bhavini handled the case very well and eventually got it settled for just a fraction of the so called "best case scenario" that my previous attorney had mentioned. Her negotiation skills are exceptional.I would definately recommend her to anyone and everyone.

Overall great
Despite the heavy volume of clients she has, Bhavini treats me as if I were her top priority no matter what, and I am not a big shot client by any means. She is well versed in jurisdiction, especially real estate, and she executes effectively. Moreover, she has an extensive experience level across the board of legal matters. I've gone to her for my real estate closings, wills, as well as personal matters. I recommend my family, friends, and clients to her Law firm. She is a go-getter who gets the job done; you definitely want her on your side.
