About Sajjid

Learn Sajjid’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Immigration
    Family-based green cards and non-immigrant visas, visitors' visas, student visas, asylum, removal defense.

  2. Family
    Filing for divorce, or formalizing a separation, is never an easy decision. No two cases are the same; however, the law applies the same across the board. Let us help you to make sure all your bases are covered and an already-difficult process isn't made worse unnecessarily.

  3. General practice
    We are happy to assist existing and potential clients with certain other legal matters. If we can't help, we will make sure to help you find the right attorney who can.

  4. Wills and living wills
    No one likes to think about his or her own mortality. But that doesn't mean we should dump the burden of dealing with our affairs on our loved ones after we pass. Planning your estate and having a valid will ensures your assets will be distributed just as you want them to be, while minimizing the burden on your loved ones in their time of grief.

I am the managing attorney at Actio Law, and am licensed to practice law in the State of Maryland and the District of Columbia.


Throughout my career, I have focused on protecting the rights of consumers and ordinary people.  Whether through the practice of immigration and consumer debt law, or helping to keep corporate financial giants in compliance with consumer protection regulations, my primary concern has always been protecting the rights of the individuals who need it most.


I understand that as times are changing, so too are the needs of clients.  You are not likely to find me sitting behind a giant oak desk, commanding large payments before even speaking with a client.  Instead, you will find me out in the community, actively educating people as to their rights.  


I am blessed to live in Loudoun County, Virginia, with my wife and stepson.  My wife's elderly parents also live with us, and we are within 10 miles of my mother, and both of my sisters and their families.  All my life, family has come first, and it continues to do so.  In my spare time, I like to listen to/write/play music, specifically rock n' roll.

High conflict divorce
Mine was a high conflict divorce and child custody case. My ex made my life difficult and stressful in every way. When Sajjid (JJ) took on my case, it was the first time I had some one who actually went head on with my ex and his attorney. What sets JJ apart from other attorneys is that he actually cares about his clients and feels their pain. He is passionate about what he does and goes to every extent to make sure the truth is heard. He did not take my case for the face value but he collected counter arguments to negate every lie and manipulation from my ex. He not only protected me but also my child. If you want someone who will not just go an extra mile but also work diligently to protect your right, I would undoubtedly recommend JJ. As clients, we go to attorneys for solutions and before I found JJ, there was no real solution from any of the attorneys I went to. You only hear what you already know but with JJ, I guarantee that you will see a difference in your life. He is an intelligent attorney you can count to protect yourself and your loved ones.
