Excellent
I could not be more pleased with the representation I received from Fareesh. After a very painful auto accident, he was so helpful. He explained everything in detail, I never felt rushed when we talked, and he had superb knowledge of how to proceed with my case. I am totally satisfied with the resolution of my case and would heartily recommend Fareesh to anyone who needs a plaintiff's attorney. He responds to calls and emails right away and went above and beyond to help me.

IVC Filter Case
To be honest I didn't know that the IVC filter that I had inserted in 2010 was defective. I had it inserted after a double pulmonary embolism after a hysterectomy. I never really thought anymore about it after the initial insertion. I received a call from the Sarangi Law Firm in the summer of 2016 asking me a few questions about my filter and during our conversation I was told that my filter was in fact one that has been causing great health issues, and in some cases death. Fareesh suggested that I have a CT Scan with contrast to make sure that my filter had not moved or broke. I was completely unaware that there was anything wrong and I was shocked that I hadn't received any notice from my doctor, or the radiologist who did my surgery. I didn't immediately look into the issue, as a matter of fact almost a year later I had put it off... June 2017 I received another call from Fareesh. He was concerned that I had not gotten the scan and emphasised that research was showing that the longer the filter is in that the risk of failure of the device goes up as many as 40% or more are failing. I scheduled an appointment immediately after the call. My appointment was with the original pulmonologist who had been involved in the placement of my filter, and he contacted the radiologist that inserted it. They both said I needed to have the filter taken out immediately. I agreed but wanted to have the CT Scan to see if the filter had migrated, or if there was any issues or changes from the original placement. Upon reviewing my CT it was discovered that the filter had in fact penetrated my vena cava vein, and one of the legs of the filter was in my small intestine. I was shocked. I had no symptoms, and I could not believe it. I was immediately scheduled for surgery to remove the filter. After reading many reviews of patients getting filters removed I was very apprehensive knowing that the filters were breaking apart during removal, and some could not be removed because of scar tissue. My procedure went well, the filter did come out intact after over and hour of trying to get in un stuck. I would just like to say thank you to Fareesh for reaching out to me. I keep thinking about the fact that if I hadn't have answered the phone that day I would still not know about the IVC Filter issue. He very well may have saved my life. If you are dealing with a medical issue that may involve a defective medical device, or a wrongful death. You need to work with someone who cares. Fareesh is a sincere, honest person who wants to see you well, and treated justly. I know that we are just in the beginning of my case but I am thankful for all that he has done so far. Give him a call. It may save your life.

Professional, Comprehensive and Courteous
Fareesh is an extremely professional attorney who is comprehensive in his approach and courteous by nature. He ensured that we had a good understanding of what to expect in our case from the start. Along the way, he gave us insights on where things were and how much time to expect things to turn around. Towards the end, he advised us on what a fair final settlement should look like. So all in all, he held our hand through the whole process very well. He is definitely recommended to others looking to get an efficient settlement on personal injury, defective and dangerous products and wrongful death cases.

Outstanding Results
I used Fareesh to handle an accident that happened in Atlanta, Georgia even though I live in North Carolina. Fareesh worked diligently to handle my case. He kept me abreast of everything that was happening every step of the way. He answered all of my questions and guided me through the whole process in a very professional way. By the time he settled my case I was very pleased with the results because he got me more than I expected and definitely more than what the insurance company was willing to give me had I not had him on my side. I highly recommend Fareesh to handle your case.

Claim experience
From the beginning of my dealings with him, I found Fareesh to be very informative and personable. He was available to answer any questions I might have as he explained the process of the class action claim and any follow up with needed documentation. He also kept me informed of the progress of the claim, and the probability of a settlement. I was very comfortable dealing with him and found him easy to access when needed. I am very glad to have had him as my attorney and felt I was in good hands. The claim is in the process of a settlement with which I am very comfortable..

Fareesh helped us with our car accident last year. Insurance company was giving us a hard time and Fareesh assisted us in not only getting insurance company's attention but also getting a decent settlement. Fareesh's response time and interpersonal skills are commendable. I have referred Fareesh to members of my family and friends and they all are happy.

Fareesh represented me in a clear cut negligence case. In spite of the fact that I suffered damages and the defendants did not have liability insurance, I was expecting to see justice served but was quite surprised to find out that businesses can get away with murder and I had few options. My injuries were near fatal. When Fareesh took on my case, I think he expected a different outcome. He was equally surprised that the defendants were not insured, no assets, and yet he was persistent in his promise to, at the very least, ensure my medical expenses were covered. I know that he did his best to get whatever financial compensation he could from the defendants. He reduced his share of the settlement. It was quite short of what I had expected but, in his defense, Fareesh remained positive. He worked hard. He did his best. He maintained a professional demeanor, knowing that he was not going to make much money, and always kept me informed of any developments. I know he felt bad for me. It was quite obvious that I deserved a better deal. But in spite of all of the above mentioned issues, he did get me some financial relief. I think that Fareesh is a very good lawyer. He is honest, sympathetic and doesn't mince words. Most of all, he is a hard worker. Anne

Your PARTNER every step of the way
You know what they say about lawyers, dentists, and the IRS... well this is very untrue when it comes to Fareesh! He was truly a partner and doesn't fit the typical mold. Once we engaged him for his services, he was always available (via cell, email and txt) and kept us in the loop on every step. He is very knowledgeable in his field and made all the strategic/tactical moves to achieve a win. But it wasn't all about winning (as most would think that is the end game), it was his attitude, his demeanor, his approach, his understanding and his compassion that makes him the best in the business. Nobody wants to be in the situation I was in and would gladly give up the settlement to be where I was before all this happened, but it was great to have Fareesh on my side to help guide me through each step and be there whenever needed. I would highly recommend him to anybody. Thank you Fareesh for all your help and support through this ordeal - my family and I truly appreciate it.

Excellent Attorney - Highly Recommend
Fareesh not only worked hard to resolve my case efficiently and quickly, but he also made it a point to keep me in the loop. He asked permission to make sure I was okay with the next steps in the case and made sure to confirm information he had received from the parties involved in the case. He was always available via email and over the phone. If you are looking for an attorney, look no further as Fareesh is your guy!

Fareesh helped resolve Car accident/ injury case
Fareesh helped us win my car accident case very smoothly. He was very professional, knowledgeable, and patient. Once he took over the case we did not have to do anything on our end, he contacted the Dr.'s office, made all the necessary calls, we just had to sit back and he was very good about keeping us posted throughout the whole process. Overall, we were very satisfied with his services, I would recommend Fareesh to all my family and friends.

Fareesh was a recommendation to me from another attorney he had worked with. From the start and throughout the process, he handled my case with speed and urgency. He consistently kept me updated on the progress of the case and always provided me with options so that I could make an informed decision. Fareesh is an expert in his field, very personable and easy to communicate with. He returned phone calls and promptly answered all my questions to my satisfaction. As a result of his actions my case settled quickly with an excellent outcome. I would highly recommend him to friends and family!

Smart and Tenacious
It is with great pleasure that we highly recommend Mr. Fareesh Sarangi as an attorney. We contacted him after we had much difficulty settling a case in which our son's car was totaled by a commercial truck. The insurance company was impossible to deal with and we were getting nowhere. After Mr. Sarangi took over the case he was able to get a settlement in short order. And the amount was far greater than we had expected. If you need a smart and tenacious lawyer, he's your man!
