Experience with Modjarrad and Abusaad Law Firm in a civil rights lawsuit
About two years ago, I decided to file a lawsuit against a governmental agency. I spoke to a few trustworthy lawyers and finally spoke to Sean (Shahin). I was impressed by his knowledge on the matter, by the attention paid to each detail in the case. Needless to say, I retained his firm and was the best decision I ever made. He was on top of the case the whole way, his team were fantastic. From his associates to his admins, very good job. Sean and his crew went through cases of documents, through hundreds of emails, and found the needle in the haystack. Sean managed to educate the opposing attorneys that it was in their best interest to settle the matter and so they did. I was very impressed with his handling of the case, and I would definitely go back to him and his team for all my legal needs.

The Best Lawyer I have ever worked with.
I learned of Mr. Modjaarad through a business connection as highly recommended. Sean, his colleagues and staff went out of their way to ensure I understood my legal situation, options and ramifications, and helped me establish realistic expectations. I could have acted on his suggestions a bit sooner, had I known what I know now, and I did not find a better alternative to any of his recommendations. He made himself available to me on weekends, and returned my calls within an hour at the latest. He has always been ethical and takes time to consider the human element.

Knowledgeable
I met Mr. Modjarrad about a year ago regarding a lawsuit. He explained it to me and told me what I could expect. He worked hard during the questioning, and when it came to the trial, he was great. I won on my case. He is my attorney for life.
