  • Steven Abraham Amjad

    Chris and I have been working on a challenging case for a little over a year now. He continues to be a pleasure to work with. He is devoted to his client's needs at every turn, but still is willing to work with me in finding solutions to moving the case forward. He is an excellent attorney to work with.
