Forever Grateful!
I can't thank Mohammed enough for the help and assistance he has given me....when things started to seem hopeless and I was ready to throw up both my hands and give up, he continued to put my mind at at ease and fought really hard for me constantly! Even after the case he continues to return my calls and answer any questions that I may have. Thank you so much for not allowing me to give up and for not giving up on me and for that I am forever grateful!!!!

During an extremely uncertain time for our family and on the heals of some questionable advice from "other" attorneys, Mohammed's name was past to me by a trusted friend. I am so grateful to that friend... Mohammed answered the many questions I had about a Chapter 7 filing and simplified the process, so I could make some informed decisions. He also treated me respectfully and courteously, at a point that the banks, credit card companies, and bill collection agencies were not. He helped me understand my rights with filing and restored my confidence that there is life after bankruptcy. Standing on the other side of my discharge, I'm beginning to understand what a "Fresh Start" actually feels like. Thank you Mohammed and thanks to the professional staff at Sulaiman Law Group, Ltd! I am very grateful...

Excellent Chapter 13 attorney!
The value of my condo was suddenly far less than I owed on the mortgage and I could no longer afford my monthly payments. I was fearful of foreclosure and how it would affect my credit and ability to purchase a new home. I contacted Mohammed and he explained all my options in great detail. He helped me formulate a plan for a strategic default that would have minimal impact on my credit. I am so very thankful to have chosen him as my attorney. He was VERY patient with me and calmed me down numerous times throughout the chapter 13 process. Mohammed is skilled at explaining big concepts that the layperson may not be familiar with. He is a true professional and I highly recommend him to any person with a legal issue.

I wouod not hesitate to use Mohammed again if I never need him. I highly recommend his services.

An Excellent Attorney
My husband and I built a home a few years ago, and our contractor stole most of our money. After trying to rebuild our lives on our own, we decided we needed more help. We began working with Mr. Badwan to look at our options. We decided that filing Ch. 13 was the best choice for us. Mr. Badwan knew this was a difficult decision for us and he could not have been more supportive. Mr. Badwan took time to lay out all of our options and helped us every step of the way by answering questions and walking us through the details of our case. Although we were deeply in debt, Mr. Badwan took great care to make sure we received the best possible settlement. We truly appreciated the time he gave to our case and we are very pleased with the results. Mr. Badwan worked hard to give us the best possible future and we are happy about moving forward with our lives. We highly recommend Mr. Badwan as a strong legal resource.

Gave us our life back!
My husband was laid off twice in two years. We found ourselves overwhelmed by mounting debt and were experiencing many sleepless nights. One of the best things that we ever did was to seek advice from Mr. Badwan and his firm. They helped us to eliminate our crushing debt and be able to get a fresh start. Without the constant worry, I was able to focus my attention on my career which has opened up many possibilities as well as financial rewards. In addition to providing excellent legal advice and service, Mr. Badwan and his associates exhibit true caring and compassion for their clients. He truly gave us our life back!

Extremely Professional and Responsive
My experience dealing with Mohammed was was very positive. He went above and beyond to make sure that I had all of the facts concerning my case. Their prices are a bit more expensive than the "television" lawyers but I feel that it was worth every extra dime due to the hands-on approach. I would recommend him to my friends and family knowing that they will get the best service. Another point concerninb Sulaiman Law Group in general, I really enjoy reading their blog. It has a lot of great information on it. Keep up the great work folks!

Extremely Knowledgable and Compassionate lawyer
We met Mohammed about 6 months ago to discuss possible bankruptcy to come out of debt, mainly business. He understood our case quickly and recommended a strategy which worked great in our situation, with half the cost of what we were expecting. We came out very well informed of all our options at the end of our first meeting and decided to hire him to represent us after interviewing two other attorneys. He is a very devoted, personable and kind man. He makes you feel at ease and listens to you, which is what you want the most when you are going through financial troubles. He is very responsive with calling back or e-mailing in a timely manner. Mohammed is an excellent lawyer and I wish him a bright, successful future.

Quick Response. Very Helpful
Mr. Badwan answered my question within 24 hours. Then answered questions via email. I did not hire him to represent me, but only because he is in another state. If I was in his state, I would definitely hire him. He is very knowledgeable and professional.
