Very sharp and strategic.
Mr. Ravala has been our international counsel since 2012, representing our interest in the U.S. He has played an instrumental role in the development and implementation of our legal framework from the onset and has advised our firm on legal matters since infancy to present. I hold Mr. Ravala in the highest esteem, he enabled us to concentrate our efforts on our business side; handling some of our most complex legal challenges with relative ease in a timely and proactive manner on a consistent basis. We consider Mr. Ravala not only as our company counsel but a strategic partner. His upfront and sound legal advice coupled with a client centric work ethic and statergic acumen has benefited our company greatly. I would highly recommend Mr. Ravala to anyone for assistance with their legal matters.

Handling My Personal Injury Case With Excellence
After my car accident in 2013 I was at a loss of how to proceed with the financial and legal matters until Attorney Salman Ravala was recommended to me. I spoke to other lawyers about my case but none showed the confidence and compassion that I required to handle my case as he did. Salman Ravala was honest, straight forward, and used strong knowledge in the letter of the law to build a foundation for the case and complete it to the end. I am highly satisfied with Attorney Salman Ravala and would strongly recommend anyone to hire him for legal representation.

Attorney Ravala is an Experienced Rising Star. Highly Recommended
I would highly recommend attorney Ravala for your business and contracts needs. I work with numerous attorneys and really enjoyed working with him. He was thorough in his assessment of my case from the start (and a 100% correct in his initial review) and provided me with clear and practical options. We were able to finalize a great deal for my business, saving thousands of dollars. May I add, alongside himself being very knowledgeable and solution oriented, his staff is courteous and prompt in following up with the deliverables we set at the beginning. A true rising star indeed!

A relief to have found such good lawyer!
Salman was very helpful from the start and followed up diligently, that's the main reason I chose him. He wasn't pushy and was very informative about all the options available, I felt very comfortable discussing all details with him about my situation. He was able to get me a more than expected settlement without having to go to court and he's a very well mannered and diplomatic individual. Highly recommended!
