Good Attorney That Gets Things Done
Suraj assisted me with my case when the odds were stacked against me and he carefully explained what was happening throughout the entire process. The outcome of my case was favorable for me and I will be sure to contact Mr. Vyas if I am in need of legal assistance regarding contracts or agreements in the future.

Excellent attorney
Attorney Suraj Vyas is one of the finest lawyers I’ve had the pleasure to commune with. He is professional, caring, sincere, and most importantly, compassionate and committed to the rights of his client. He has a wealth of knowledge about law in general and more specifically about construction and contract law. He utilizes many outstanding, unique, and very creative trial strategies. Suraj is a great communicator and an excellent lawyer. He is a confident and aggressive attorney whom I trusted to protect my interests and he exceeded all of my expectations. Suraj is old school regarding treating clients with respect & dignity, but is on the cutting edge of technology, which makes him a highly skilled attorney. The best quality in Suraj is that he is passionate about representing his clients well. Combine that passion with his experience and skill as a litigator, and you have a formidable combination. I believe that Suraj is an exceptional example of what everybody should expect from a perfect lawyer. I strongly recommend Suraj as your attorney and you can be rest assured you have a knowledgeable and experienced lawyer on your side who will work to protect your rights and get you the compensation you deserve. I endorse attorney Suraj Vyas for his highly ethical and professional representation of clients.

Maryland Engineering Firm - Head of HR
We needed an attorney to assist our firm during the construction of a commercial building. We asked a lot from Mr. Vyas, but responded to all questions quickly and thoroughly either by email or phone. He has a deep knowledge of contract law and how courts may interpret ambiguous terms. Our firm plans on using his services again in the future should they ever be needed.
