Best Lawyer in Louisville, KY
Nader Shunnarah was a beacon of hope to a good friend at a time when our options appeared limited and the likelihood of a satisfactory resolution seemed nigh on impossible. Not only was he able to get us a large lump sum of money from the settlement in an expedited manner but his professional and empathetic demeanor offered emotional succor to myself and those I care about most. Nader has decades of institutional knowledge, experience and good rapport with judges, and he is easy to reach and quick to respond to clients by text and phone. Oftentimes he can get ahold of your lawyer quicker than you can! We are eternally grateful for his service and we recommend Nader Shunnarah without reservation. Thank you again
