Helped us with a civil case
Devkota helped us handle all of our civil cases we had. We own a business that does business to business services and him and his team have done a great job at making sure we feel comfortable and handling the issues we have had.

Great Job!
I was rear-ended at a stop light and needed medical treatment. I made a police report and went to the hospital. The following day the insurance called me to make me low ball offers, I told them I had an attorney and they hung up. I went to the Devkota Law Firm and they helped me with medical treatment, pay all my bills and got me compensation for my injuries. I am very happy with the work they have done. The staff was friendly and after all I was very happy with my outcome!!

Tarak helped me after I was told i did not have a case.
I was in a car accident and it was difficult to say who was responsible. I told everyone my version of what happened and the lawyers I met and the insurance company I was dealing with told me it seemed to be my fault even though I knew it was not my fault. I met with Tarak Devkota and his staff and he listened to me and took my case even though it would not be easy. I really cannot say enough about how well they treated me and in the end I won my case, thank you so much.

had a great experience
tarak devkota did a great job handling my personal injury case after my auto accident. Took a few months but we had bi weekly meetings with progress and updates on my case. He kept me up to date and gave me copies of everything myself to keep for my own records. Everything came to a happy ending for me and i definitely have no complaints. I would definitely recommend him to anyone needing services.

A very good experience
I dont know what the other posters experienced, but i can guarantee he was very helpful with my personal injury case. We met every few weeks with progress updates, he informed me of all the actions they had taken and needless to say, i am very happy with my experience. Id recommend him anytime.

Tarak Devkota DNH.......
I hired this attorney and it was the worst choice I could have made. Please review this attorney you can not say much on here but review, review, review!
Posted by anonymous | August 10, 2010
Do not hire this person
There is not a whole lot you can say on here, I could tell you several things that Tarak Devkota promised me but then I would not be able to post this on here. The service that he DIDN'T provided didnt live up the promises that he made. I received no such service for the amount of money I paid this lawfirm. I would not refer anyone to Tarak Devkota. I am in the same place I was when I started this case and I am now several thousand dollars short with nothing to show.
