Federal Employment Law Expert
Hiring Solomon, Maharaj & Kasimati was the smartest decision I made in my legal federal employment law case. At every stage , Mr. Maharaj kept me informed, explained the lengthly process stages, argued on my behalf through well thought out legal substantive facts and equally as important, treated me like a person that mattered and not a number as many large firms sadly do. Mr. Maharaj worked tirelessly on my case, respectfully going toe to toe with the federal government attorneys and proving himself through his dedication to me as his client. While all cases are different, I would suggest the forward thinking legal arguments and attention to detail Mr Maharaj championed on my behalf, were the determining factors that resulted in the positive outcome of my case. I proudly recommend Mr. Maharaj and could not have asked for a more knowledgeable, hard working defender of my rights.

Protecting and Defending Your Reputation
Mr. Maharaj is focused, diligent and caring in your defense and he will win. You have spent your career building your reputation, Don't let a Federal Agency try to tear it down retaliating against your for following or enforcing the law or Policy. After providing significant testimony in response to several independent and agency investigations, the agency retaliated against me. Dan aggressively countered and filed motions and appeals through various Federal Employment adjudication agencies (EEO, OSC & MSPB) The negotiated settlement agreement Mr. Maharaj arranged was better than expected and the agency had to provide significant compensatory damages as well as future employment references and opportunities.

Successful representation
I hired Daniel Maharaj of SM&K to represent me in an appeal of my annual performance appraisal issued to me by my employing Government Agency. Attorney Daniel Maharaj submitted a detailed rebuttal and appeared personally at the Hearing. He made a vigorous presentation within the short time allotted to us. Subsequently, the firm investigated various aspects of the circumstances surrounding the evaluation and brought to light several relevant matters such that my performance evaluation has been rectified, and I am now secure in my job. I can recommend Daniel and this Law firm to anyone in Government employment who encounters similar impediments in their workplace. MG, Washington DC.

I would highly recommend Mr. Maharaj.
I retained Mr. Maharaj during my application for medical/disability retirement from a federal position, and again for a brief consultation in a related area afterward. Mr. Maharaj was knowledgeable, attentive, and effective. I found him to be straight-forward and easy to work with. He was responsive any time I had questions. I am certain that the process would have been far more difficult, and frankly quite overwhelming, without him. My application was successful. Mr. Maharaj ensured that I knew what to expect, and each step went smoothly. I would strongly and without reservation recommend him to anyone who is seeking legal counsel in his areas of practice.

Best lawyer!
Daniel has been working my case for almost 2 years. He is not like a usual lawyer. He actually listens and comforts you with good advice. I wish there was more lawyers like him... (I actually wish I could hire him for my divorce proceedings :)

It was a great pleasure to have Mr. Daniel Maharaj represent me and accept my case. A true professional with great knowledge of the law as well as the agency my case was filed against. His strategy to close this chapter was brilliant with superb results.

Compassionate and Brilliant
Mr Maharaj is the best lawyer I have ever dealt with. He is devoted to his clients and fights for them with vigor. He is extremely articulate and equally intelligent. Mr Maharaj is one of the only lawyers I have encountered that displays a deep ethical standing in his practice. He truly is a lawyer that fights against injustice. I highly recommend MR Maharaj and his firm without hesitation. He has been fighting with me and for me in a difficult situation.
