Excellent Lawyer
I've used Nehad for immigration filings for my spouse. He did an excellent job from beginning to end while maintaining good contact and direction to make the process easy and effective. I highly recommend him and have already recommended him to others. I had originally found him online and after speaking to him decided to chose him to handle my case over all the other lawyers. He's knowledgeable, caring and affordable.
