I obtained the services of Dhali PLLC for a workers compensation insurance premium problem. I am small business owner and the insurance company had sent me a bill for $22,000. They claimed that the independent contractors were my employees and therefore I had to pay WC Ins.
Mr. Dhali resolved the matter with them, sending them a detailed report on my labor situation and they sent me a final invoice for $0!
I was so pleased. I would highly recommend him. He also kept me informed of the proceeding every step of the way; I thought I had my own personal company attorney. And in a way I guess I did.

I've known many lawyers over the years and AJ is unlike any of them, thankfully. I have unfortunately found most attorneys (in and out of the DC area) follow the business model of telling you what they believe you want to hear until your check is deposited into their account. Soon after, they are gone along with all their initial promises regarding your case. It's a real downer when that happens.
I was happy to find AJ soonafter he began his practice. Some people told me I was making a mistake and should go with a huge law firm that had been around for ages. I disagreed and I'm glad I did. My thought process was that you really have to know what you're doing to open your own practice, and it has to be your passion; you have to really want it to succeed. A huge law firm could mean there's a chance your lawyer is going through the motions just to collect a paycheck.
I remember I gave AJ so much documentation in the beginning. I felt what was happening to me was wrong, but needed a professional analysis. The previous attorney I was working with hadn't even looked through what I gave her, yet she had all the documents for at least 6 months. That woman had been in practice for at least 20 years too! AJ looked through all my documentation in a matter of days. I'll never forget when he leaned back in his chair, smiled, and said, "I'll take it. This looks like fun!" He was well aware he would be coming up against the big boys, but it didn't seem to phaze him. When you come up against a big business, you need an attorney that's confident, especially when you're scared to death. He's got that covered. Like his website states, "You'll Never Walk Alone." From my experience, that's a promise. Numerous times I was left in a panic, calling him at a moment's notice while my employer was intimidating me at my job. AJ was always reachable, advising me what to do in every circumstance. He talked me down from the ledge numerous times. The previous attorney I worked with, who claimed to be a Yale grad, regularly disappeared for weeks not returning messages. I felt like I was dropped in a war zone with no means of protection when I was working with her. Not once did I feel abandoned by AJ. He never gave up on me or my case.
Thanks to his hard work and countless hours, he managed to get my case settled for a decent amount. I had almost given up on believing people could get anywhere in this world unless they were crooked. He showed me honesty and perserverence does account for something and it's still worth the fight. All in all, there are very few people I can count on in this world; he's one of them.

It has been a true blessing to have AJ represent me in my wrongful termination case recently. He worked all hours researching and documenting my case and provided valuable advice, confidence, and support to my family and I.
AJ is not only a true and true professional, but he's also a humble person who truly cares for you as a person. His priority is to help you and ultimately to win the case. And he did!
AJ had full confidence and trust in me and in my case that he told me, "I will get your job back!" And he surely did. I am truly grateful, Thank you! AJ is highly knowledgeable and he is very good at what he does.
I highly recommend AJ as your attorney. Give him a shot. You won't be disappointed.
