Fantastic Attorney
Mr. Nawash handled my car accident case. I was fortunate to have found a fantastic attorney. He was sympathetic, kind and understanding. He was compassionate and was willing to work within my budget where now a days attorney charge and arm and a leg. Mr. Nawash immediately went to work, he assured me everything will be fine and I did not need to worry. It was a great piece of mind that my case was in good hands. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He is an outstanding attorney.

Helped me a lot
I was in a car accident in which I was hit. Three other lawyers would not take my case even though I was in pain. Mr. Nawash did not hesitate and took me on as a client. I appreciate all his efforts. He was very good at explaining the laws and the best result for me. Very helpful.
