Seth Obed - ED Va Procedural Maestro
Seth Obed was an outstanding local counsel for our employment case in the ED Va. He absolutely went above and beyond in a case that played out all the way through trial over 6 intense months. Regular late night filings, ridiculously voluminous trial exhibits, and an encyclopedia of knowledge on the District's rules and practices. Highly recommended!

Legal Assistance with Former Employer
I recently engaged Seth Obed for employment law services with a former employer. Seth was highly professional and knowledgeable in his field and demonstrated a deep understanding of employment laws and regulations, which was crucial in helping me navigate my employment issues. One of the things that impressed me the most was their ability to clearly explain legal concepts and processes in a way that was easy for me to understand. They patiently listened to my concerns and provided practical advice tailored to my specific situation. Furthermore, Seth was responsive and prompt in communication. ensuring that I was updated throughout the process. This level of attentiveness made me feel valued as a client and instilled confidence in his ability to handle my case effectively. Seth negotiated and advocated for my rights and best interests, striving to achieve a fair resolution. I appreciated his proactive and positive approach and willingness to explore alternative dispute resolution methods before resorting to litigation. I would highly recommend his services to anyone seeking legal assistance in the field of employment law.

Professional, knowledgeable, highly responsive
. I reached out to Mr. Obed to represent me in an ongoing matter with my landlord. He has been super attentive, fast to communicate, highly professional and knowledgeable, and he listens to what his clients need, as well as. On top of that, he seems to be a nice and genuine person. It is very hard to find a lawyer matching all of that criteria. While my matter is still pending, I highly recommend Seth and I feel like I am an excellent hands.

Landlord- tenant Case
I recently found myself in a distressing situation when my rental property was severely affected by flooding. With mounting repair costs and a landlord who seemed unwilling to take responsibility, I realized I needed legal assistance. After conducting thorough research, I came across an exceptional landlord-tenant lawyer who proved to be an invaluable asset throughout my case. From our initial consultation, it was evident that the lawyer possessed an impressive understanding of landlord-tenant laws and regulations, particularly in relation to property maintenance and negligence. Their knowledge and experience in this area immediately instilled confidence in me. Throughout the entire process, the lawyer displayed a remarkable level of professionalism and dedication. They were highly responsive, promptly answering all my queries and keeping me informed about the progress of my case. Their communication skills were exceptional, as they explained complex legal concepts in a clear and concise manner, ensuring I understood the implications and potential outcomes of each step.Moreover, the lawyer exhibited genuine empathy and understanding towards the emotional and financial toll the flooding had taken on me. They constantly reassured me, providing support and encouragement during a challenging time. Their commitment to my well-being and best interests went beyond the legal aspects of the case. Ultimately, my experience with this landlord-tenant lawyer was outstanding. Their expertise, professionalism, and dedication proved instrumental in achieving a successful outcome for my case. I wholeheartedly recommend their services to anyone seeking legal representation in landlord-tenant disputes.

Rental real estate
I consulted with Seth the week before my trial and he did a wonderful job of compiling the evidence needed to represent me successfully. He was very professional, and I am so glad I chose to have him represent me. I highly recommend him.

Case won via litigation
Seth from Obed Law Group, PLC, represented me during the conflict between my landlord and me. I lived in an apartment where the landlord has failed to fix an issue (a leak) occurring in the apartment for almost 11 months. In addition to that, the landlord at the end of my lease increased my rate up to $450. Tired of the situation, I reached out to Seth, to whom I explained the whole situation during our consultation. He recommended a few options. I chose one and we then proceed with it, whereas he represented me to ensure I get the outcomes that I wanted. Today, the case is closed and I am happy because all of my demands have been met by my landlord. I don't think this would have been possible without Seth's help. Thank you, Seth!

consummate Professional Employment Attorney
When an ADA issue arose at my workplace, Seth was responsive, diligent and very knowledgeable about the laws surrounding my case. He was able to resolve an amicable settlement for me within 30 days. One of the most painless processes I've gone through. He is extremely well versed in employment law, always provides his expert advice in an objective manner, and brings a sense of peace to those of us going through issues with our employers. I would recommend Seth in a heartbeat to anybody looking to resolve a workplace dispute.

Excellent legal services and attorney. Very professional and dedicated.
Mr. Obed is an amazing lawyer-- was very understanding and supportive throughout the whole process from start to finish. After dealing with great injustice from my former employer during the COVID-19 pandemic, I truly felt hopeless and devastated. Then I was referred to Mr. Obed's firm, and everything started to look up from that moment. The first time I spoke to Mr. Obed he was very undertsanding, patient, and listened to everything I had to say about my situation, took all concerns into consideration and stayed on the phone for over one hour until I finished expressing myself. He definitelt understood my fustration and gave me an idea of what to expect before moving forward with my case. During the whole process Mr. Obed never gave up on my case, provided continuous communication and follow-up (during all the 4+ months working with my case). It was a challenging case mostly because my former employer and opposing counsel would purposely delay responses for weeks and months-- but Mr.Obed remained consistent, provided supporting evidence to support my case, and kept communicating with opposing counsel until we were able to reach a fair agreement/justice for all the injustice I had gone through. There are no words to express my gratitute. I highly recommend Mr. Obed's firm and legal services.

Respectful, Trustworthy, Intelligent & Kind
I was thrilled when Seth took my call on a weekend and very thoughtfully listened to my employment concerns of retaliation, harassment and gender discrimination. He provided excellent legal advice and services in an extremely timely and comprehensive manner. He also understood the difficulty that this situation posed to me and I greatly appreciated his kind and caring manner. Seth’s intellect, experience, respectful and compassionate way of working with people is a winning combination in today’s world and I would partner with him again.

Seth performed brilliantly!
I faced a particularly complex employment law challenge. Seth dove right into the details of my case and put me on a level playing field with the company. Seth helped me get an outcome that was absolutely fantastic for me. It surpassed all my expectations and was some so quickly without a lot of work on my end. I would heartily recommend Seth to any and all. A gentleman and a profoundly effective attorney.

Very professional and patient in a complicated case. Approachable and very responsive when I had questions or concerns. Seth made sure I understood VA law, as applicable to my case, and he worked to get me a settlement within a reasonably quick turnaround.

Review of Service
I hired Seth to help represent my interests as a tenant in an ongoing dispute with my property manager. Seth was great at explaining my options and, in being new to the legal world, also what to expect as we went in a particular direction. I would have been happy with his services even if we had not been successful in the end, so I would highly recommend him to others. He is first rate!

Wonderful Experience
My fiance and I had an issue to bring up with our landlord. Though the case was smaller than Mr. Obed is used to, he took very good care of us and our case. He was upfront about expectations with how it could turn out, which we appreciated. He ended up exceeding those expectations in the end because he is good at negotiating! Great communication. I would highly recommend Mr. Obed if you need legal help.

Experienced, Compassionate & Trusted!
I hired Mr. Obed to finish my Garnishment case as I live in California and had to have an unplanned major surgery on my neck. He took over my case with ease, was extremely reasonable on his hourly rate, and so knowledgeable he even found a mistake the Court had made! He pointed out the road blocks ahead and prepared diligently and ahead of schedule. He communicated with me before I even had a chance to worry or ask questions. He was very personal, approachhable and compassionate to my situation. I don't have any more legal issues in VA to handle, but if I did, I would hand them all over to him! I've been a paralegal for 25 years in the PI industry and have seen all kinds of lawyers. I wish there were more attorneys like Mr. Obed out here in CA!

Great civil work contract attorney
Seth was professional and detail oriented. He took his time to research the case and case law. Seth did a great job or keeping me informed during the process. He was not out to just fill his pockets like some attorneys but to do a thorough job and help someone in need! Thanks Seth. Would recommend you to anyone in the northern Virginia area!

Seth is great
As a small business owner, I'm often faced with legal challenges that overwhelm my own experience in terms of figuring out the best way to proceed. Seth has worked with me on numerous occasions, and he's always been fantastically helpful. Seth has helped dealing exclusively with me on contracts as well as dealing directly with clients of mine as issues arise. My favorite aspect of working with Seth, though, is that he takes the time to listen to me, understands what I want, and walks me through my options in a way I understand.
