    Mr. Nawash is a wonderful and skilled attorney. Aside from the fact that our mutual contacts have spoken highly of him, I have relied on his excellent immigration law advice to assist and strategize for mutual clientele of ours. I would not hesitate to recommend him for any of his practice areas.

Recently He was asked to consult on a high profile case in D.C. and i was thoroughly impressed with his ability to contribute and respond to team needs quickly and effectively, in a pressure filled situation. I would recommend Attorney Nawash unhesitatingly.
