highly recommend
I was wrongfully terminated from my job and searched lawyers and came across Ike. From the first day I called him to the day we set up a meeting to discuss my case he was amazing!.. He understood what I was going through and gave me hope for a successful outcome. He is caring, honest, knowledgeable, and very to the point. He doesn't cut corners or "sugar coat". He listens, and advices with concern and logic. In the the almost 3 years it took to close my case he was in touch with me and kept in the "loop" of what could be the next step. Thank you for your representation with my case. Thank you for all you did and thank you for your professionalism. I highly recommend Ike as your attorney, you wont be disappointment. THANK YOU IKE!

Although it was an unfortunate way to meet Ike, I am very fortunate to have found him. If you ever need any kind of help whatsoever and come across Ike, don’t think twice, give him a call. He had my back 110%. He didn’t let anyone disrespect me in my lawsuit, he stood up for me, explained everything to me, sat on the phone with me for multiple hours on end since everything happened right when the pandemic began, to help me and prepare me in every way possible. Ike thank you so much for your services given to me. I will always remember the kindness and justice you gave me.

Excellent Legal Representation
I was extremely pleased with the overall customer service and legal representation. Mr. Emejuru was extremely professional, detailed orientated, organized, patient and caring. He listened to my concerns and addressed all my questions. He did an amazing job outlining my available legal options. The entire process at times was long and frustrating;but, he encouraged he to remain strong and focused. He did an amazing job keeping me abreast on my case developments. He was honest and realistic with me at all times. I would use his services again as well as I would strongly encourage family and friends to utilize his services as well. In closing, Mr. Emejuru is an honet, caring and passionate attorney who actually cares about his clients.

Success in Wrongful Termination Case
Attorney Emejuru proved to be the ideal representative in my wrongful termination case. Not only was he outstanding in court, he was able ease any fears I had ahead of time. This was my first time in court and it was for something I would have never imagined having to do. Wrongful termination can be nerve-racking. Attorney Emejuru really turned an an experience that as initially uncomfortable, into a doable one.

In my experience of dealing with attorneys Mr. Emejuru is a cut above the rest. He is quite knowledgeable, honest, and clear. Ike always responded to my inquires and took the time to explain the details of my case in order to make sure I was comfortable with where we were heading. I couldn’t recommend Mr. Emejuru enough.

I really dont knowwhere to start from, but just going to say aa little about Mr. Emejuru because if i am going to write it will be a book about him. He a person to meet and he was right to the point telling me what i did wrong and what he was going to do about my case. with a day, i received several calls from him giving me update abut what he has done and what he about to do next. I was blessed to come accross Mr. Emejuru after seaching for over six months looking for someone to help me with my case.

After my contract with a high profile company was wrongfully terminated I needed lawyer that was going to work skillfully to make sure I received what I lost plus more with my former employer. Emejuru & Nyombi communicated with me through every step during the process of my lawsuit and I'm very satisfied with their services.

Easy to work with and very helpful!
Both persuasive and practical, Attorney Emejuru was a pleasure to work with. After being terminated from my job after an injury on-sight, I need someone to step up on my behalf. Ike and his partner Andrew did that and more. We were able to successfully reach a financial agreement with my former employer that made financial sense to me. I'd recommend Ike to anyone.

Attorney Emejuru is Professional, Knowledgeable, & a People Person
I would highly recommend Mr. Emejuru to handle any legal business. Mr. Emejuru’s knowledge of the law is impressive. Not only did he explained the law to me, he took the initiative to explain and assure I understood my options. It is important to hire an individual that makes you feel comfortable, especially anytime when you are seeking a professional to help with a particular subject that is unfamiliar to you. I was very happy and satisfied with my selection for choosing Attorney Ikechukwu (Ike) Emejuru and I was pleased with his services. Mr. Emejuru is a professional and trustworthy and if you decide to do business with him, then you will get someone who is willing to go the extra mile for you and defend your rights.

Mr. Emejuru, Trustworthy lawyer that will fight for you.
Mr. Emejuru, took my case on short notice. He described to me what need to be done to win the case. In the end, Mr. Emejuru fought for me and won my case. I would recommend him as lawyer to anybody trying look for someone trustworthy and that will fight you.

Professional and Transparent at all times.
Mr. Emejuru will be my go-to Lawyer and the one I refer from here on out. He was very professional at all times and kept me informed with everything relevant to my case. I am a busy working professional in the Washington DC area and he was able to keep my mind at ease while I worked during the day. This is especially evident when he would ask "How I was doing?". That goes a long way. One of the most important aspects of him that you really can't teach was his ability to think outside the box when unforeseen roadblocks did occurred. Thank you, Mr. Emejuru!

Ike ("GEM") Emejuru Atty@Law
All about Ike Emejuru, Esquire – aka “GEM”EJURU In every day life situations, there comes a time when you must consult a lawyer, especially in complex circumstances that have you confused and turned upside down! You don't know where to turn because it's almost a one size fits all kinda industry. Turn to Ike Emejuru instead of just letting your fingers do the walking through the yellow pages/or going on-line doing random searches. When you do that**BOOM** if the name looks right or the "models” are wearing big enough grins all over the place, you’re really playing Russian Roulette with your life. Well, you deserve better than that, and with Mr. Emejuru, that's what you get-BETTER! He delivers professional, informed advice, gives you options, and (most importantly) treats you like a real person. That’s what he did for me. That’s what you need...someone who cares! A lot of times, some of these practitioners make you feel intimidated and seem unconcerned with YOUR particular case. I’ve run into those types of “professionals” and it turned out to be a disaster. I spent money I really didn’t have and got no results at all. I know there’s no guarantee about anything, but at least start out with a fighting chance by getting some education. Let’s face it, knowledge is power – and that’s what I was able to get. When I was under the counsel of Mr. Emejuru, I felt strong and I felt confident. The problem didn’t seem so big anymore. Before meeting with him, I was confused and upset. No one wants to feel that way. Let Ike take care of your legal questions, concerns and problems. He will definitely put your mind at ease. Remember, you’re the one who needs to feel powerful when you walk into that courtroom. And when I left Ike’s office, I walked away with the knowledge and information that I needed to make an intelligent decision about what to do. It may have been tough to hear, but he told me the truth…and it turned my life around. I took all of Ike’s recommendations under advisement and considered all of my options (which prior, I’d thought I didn’t even have). Ultimately, I made the right moves. It’s all because I met a fine lawyer by the name of Ike Emejuru, Esquire. You better get him on your team if you want to know truthfully how to handle your business successfully! In my humble opinion, he’s a rare GEM and I appreciate him for allowing me to benefit from his wisdom and experience!!

Outstanding Lawyer
Great professional work done by Attorney Ike Emejuru on solving a statute of limitation issue for me. What I appreciated was his research, and knowledge of the subject matter. His persistence in communicating with the court, even though the prosecutor was reluctant to acknowledge his argument, was exceptional. In the end, his firm won the case saving me a headache and money. I was introduced to Mr. Emejuru through the Maryland Bar Association and very happy with the outcome of my case. I highly recommend his expert services.

Buyer trusts your instinct
During our consult, Ike yawn several times as if I was wasting his time. A professional lawyer would listen and offer advise. My instincts told me to choose someone else before calling him. Not impressed at all. What a waste of money.
