Mr. Seva and his team helped me throughout my legal journey. They made navigating the intimidating legal system seem like a walk in the park. His team is well prepared and I have nothing but great things to say about my experience.

An attorney for the people
I contacted Seva Law Firm months after I was injured in an auto accident. Despite the time frame, Pratheep took the time to listen to the details of my case and advised me of my options for recovery. He was honest and upfront and handled my entire case with that level of honesty. Although I was a client, Pratheep and his staff made me feel more like an extended member of their family. There are no words to say how much this meant to me. I would recommend Pratheep to anyone who needs his services. Case number 16-001150-NI

Exceptional Lawyer
I contacted Pratheep as a referral from a friend and couldn't be any happier with my decision. He handled my case with extreme professionalism, and in a timely matter. He made sure that he explained everything to me about my case so I understood everything every step of the way. He made sure to return my calls any time I have any questions, and I was at ease knowing that my lawyer genuinely cares. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a good knowledgeable lawyer.

Amazing Attorneys!
Pratheep from the Seva Law Firm handled an auto accident case for my brother, who was catastrophically injured. The case was extremely difficult and the insurance company did not want to pay anything. However, Pratheep got us lifetime medical and a great settlement. I strongly urge you to hire the Seva Law Firm for your legal issues. Our case info can be found at Wayne County Case No. 14-002143-NF.

Smart, responsive, and friendly
Pratheep (or Seva as I know him) did a great job handling my daughter's car accident case after the insurance company stopped paying her bills. He was very knowledgeable and aggressive. Most importantly, he always returned our calls and emails. I would highly recommend Seva!

My doctor referred me to the Seva Law Firm after my insurance company stopped paying. Within a short time they were able to get my benefits back and I even got some extra money in my pocket!

I was a client of Pratheep and would always recommend him to anybody. I do not have any complaints about him. I love the way he handled my case.

Pratheep is the man! He is for the people!
I was injured and lost my good job. I had excruciating back and neck pain as well as a broke hand. Not only did Pratheep make sure The doctors I treated with were the best doctors to get me well, but my award amount was something I never dreamed of it being. Pratheep is very trustworthy, always attentive to his client'a needs. I would recommend Pratheep to anyone who is looking for a smart, trustworthy lawyer who knows how to think, he's your man. Pratheep is the man and no other lawyer can compare to the way he handles business and be fair.
