BEST PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER IN THE DMV AREA
I initially contacted Ms. Chinwe in October of 2017 after I was involved in an accident where I was T-boned by someone who cut across 4 lanes and ran directly into the driver's side of my vehicle. A month and a half later in December 2017, my son and I were involved in a hit and run accident in which the driver totaled my vehicle. Ms. Chinwe is very pleasant, keeps you informed about every detail. If you have any questions and/or concerns she would gladly explained the process to you with no hesitation. She is knowledgeable and thorough. Quick response time. I would HIGHLY recommend to anyone involved in a car accident and/or have experienced personal injury of some sort. Chinwe is awesome.

Reviewing the services Omens Law firm
I encountered Omens Law Firm at a time when I was hit by a car whose driver fled the scene. Omens took time to educate me about what to expect, checked on me periodically to make sure I was getting g better, made sure I was alright. The Law firm was caring compassionate and ensured I was not cheated at ecery level. Integrity was important to Omens. There were no hidden agendas. She was thorough, upfront and they deliver the goods. You never have to wonder. You know what to expect and when. I am completely satisfied and I will recommend Owens without any reservations.

Excellent Attorney
From the first visit to our last correspondence, Chinwe was excellent. She communicated and practically predicted that if I was patient I would get the right outcome from my case. She worked diligently and fast. I am 100% satisfied.

Great experience! Chinwe Kpaduwa, Esq. obviously has passion for her profession and she delivers. Very thorough and communicates with her clients as often as necessary without leaving them in any distress. She went far beyond what I expected out of an adequate Attorney.

Criminal Case
Ms. Kpaduwa was very professional and kept me updated on my case. Also, when I was about to freak out, Ms. Kpaduwa arranged to meet with me to answer any concerns I had and discussed with me how Maryland criminal system works to keep me from worrying prior to the date the court set for me to hear my case. It turned out I ended up not having to appear in front of judge after all due to Ms. Kpaduwa communicating with the District Attorney assigned to the case. Ms. Kpaduwa filed to have my record expunged immediately after my case was dismissed in court and emailed me with the document for my file. I was 100 percent pleased with the way Ms. Kpaduwa handled my case. If I ever need a lawyer for a specific issue, I will certainly reach out to Ms. Kpaduwa for help as well as refer others to her firm.

Very Professional, great advice, immediate response
I'm very happy I found Ms. Kpaduwa. I faced a situation and did not know how handle it properly. She began working right away and the issue was taken care of faster than I thought. She offers great legal advice. As soon as I spoke with her I knew I wanted her to represent me. She is extremely knowledgeable. I did not have to deal with the court or explain anything she took care of everything for me. I would definitely recommend Ms. Kpaduwa. She is really great and if I ever need representation again I will be reaching out to her.

Excellent Service
During my consultation call, Chinwe took the time to listen to my case thoroughly. She gave thoughtful responses and insightful advice. I am most grateful for her concern and overall mindfulness of my challenging situation. She saw me as a human being going through a tough time--and not just another client. I would definitely recommend Chinwe!

Caring, concerned, and takes a personal interest in her client.
I truly appreciated the services provided by Ms. Chinwe. She is a true public servant. She represents her clients as if she was representing her family. She was very responsive, easy to talk to, and always available even if you just needed clarification. She is a wonderful attorney and worth every dime you spend with her. I highly recommend her and would use her again but I am praying there will not be any future needs for her services (smiling).

Excellent Lawyer! Jail time Averted!
My husband had a traffic case that he had ignored for years! Also with us living out of State I guess he didn't take it too seriously until his driving privileges were suspended! We contacted Chinwe some months ago and she was amazing. She's extremely patient, very thorough, and resourceful. We were confident that due to her advice we will be ok. Glad to say the case is over finally, license restored, fines reduced, threat of jail time eliminated...etc thanks Chinwe! You are the best. God's blessings!!!!!

The best lawyer I've seen
I really thought my life was going to be 10 times harder when I got 4 tickets for driving on a suspended license. I told my lawyer the situation and she handled everything with ease, I didn't even have to go to court! I'm sticking with this lawyer she really helped me!

1st Class Legal Services!
Omena Law Firm was phenomenal! Chinwe was highly professional and very knowledgeable about the matters involving our case. We were impressed by how actively she listened and how accurately she analyzed the evidence to prepare. She kept us informed and provided us with all the possible outcomes so that we were appropriately prepared for what may have happened. In the end, we achieved the best possible outcome. The case against us was dropped. Omena Law Firm has us as a permanent customer, should we ever need a defense attorney again.

Top-Notch Legal Service Worth Every Penny!
Omena Law Firm did an outstanding and professional job on my case- from consultation all the way to completion! Chinwe and her staff are not only super responsive but also very efficient. I would not have been able to keep up with the details of my case and the mountain of paperwork were it not for their unique expertise.

Awesome legal service, even with very little time to prepare
I procrastinated about finding a lawyer for my traffic case and wasn't sure what to expect from a "last minute" attorney. I had spoken to someone else who wasn't very engaging so I expected the bare minimum. Chinwe was on top of things from our first call. She started the ball rolling very quickly, was communicative and very honest with me. Even with a very short time to prepare, Chinwe did a great job and got my charges dismissed. As the icing on the cake, she also processed expungement paperwork at no additional charge! I'm extremely happy with her work. I hope I never have an occasion to call her again, but I do plan to recommend her to anyone who finds themselves in need of a great attorney!
