Great Attorney
A friend recommended him for our nephew. We had spoken to several attorneys and he was the most expensive. What I liked about him was that he was very blunt - spoke his mind. For a minute there I thought he did not want us to hire him. We took a chance on him and were happy that we did. The case was dismissed. He gets angry quickly - but was knowledgable, easy to contact (always returned my calls) and got the job done. I keep his card in my wallet.

Exceptional Service
We hired The Merchant Law Firm after a bad experience with two other Firms. They were professional from beginning to end, and performed way better than we expected. We would definitely recommend Feroz Farook's firm as a high end operation!

Professional and reliable
Feroz Merchant was recommended by one of my relative, in the wake of reaching his office he rapidly got back to me and set up an appointment. I disclosed to him my case and he felt confident and he was attentive to all of my questions and inquiries. Mr Feroz Merchant taking care of everything and my case was dismissed. I would highly recommend him as your attorney.
