Smart and Easy to Work With!
I run a small filmmaking business and needed a detailed contract for one of my clients who wanted to start a long-term agreement for my services. I didn't know where to begin, so I reached out to a few different attorney offices for help. Shirin responded to my inquiries immediately and walked me through the process of drafting my first contract. She was patient with my inexperience in these matters and made sure that I understood everything along the way. She was prompt and professional with all her communication and very flexible with working around my availability and needs. I was so pleased with my experience with Shirin, I've already started conversations with her about future contracts and legal work! I would absolutely recommend her services to others!

Invaluable Legal Help as I Started My Business!
Thank you very much, Shirin, for all the help you provided to me as I started my own business last year. You helped me create my LLC, draft a service contract to use with my customers, register my trademark and determine what copyrights I should file applications for, worked with a graphic designer to make sure my business was getting full rights to his designs, and provided tons of other advice (including IRS help) to make me feel confident and secure as I launch this dream of mine. Thank you again!!!!!!

To Whom it May Concern
Last year I knew that I needed to retain an Attorney. I figured that any attorney that I would have would be good! Well, I feel that had got so much more! I feel very, very fortunate that Shirin Chahal was assinged to my case! After our first intial contact, I could tell she is very Professional and is a very passionate about the type of law she practices and especially about helping her clients in that matter! But, she is even much more than that! I feel Shirin goes Above and Beyond just being Professional. My case as it turned out took more than just a little more time and effort than similar cases, it took a great deal more of Shirin's time and she was very Gracis with her time and extremely Patient! With that I would also like to mention, I had a very stressful year and it was very traumatic for me as well, my Father had passed away last year, (in the middle of this) and of course Shirin conveyed her condolences which was very heartfelt, but again I want to add, to me it was much more, Shirin is Compassionate about the type of law she practices and about helping her clients, and with that I can tell she is truly Genuine and Sincere!!! I don't think I would have gotten through it as well if it had not been for her!! Sincerely, Rose

Sale of Business
I was looking to retire and sell my small business in Colorado. Shirin helped get my corporate records in order, and then drafted all the necessary documents to facilitate the deal. She also counseled me on tax issues and did some research to help figure out how I would transfer my state license to the buyer. The overall experience was great and I am happy to write this review for her.

Identity Theft!
I want to take the time to let you know what an excellent job you did resolving the Identity theft issue for me. We did not experience a second of down time, due to your professionalism, knowledge and experience. Your swift actions prevented further problems from the problem, and as a result my credit standing improved considerably. I have always received quality service, you always knew just what to do to solve my problem quickly and restore the good standing to my account. Thank you.

Her performance far exceeded expectations!
for years/ 30+ ( as a small Corporation ) I've struggled with the IRS , Small Biz Collections , thinking I could quell and cure arrears , using IRS prescribed methods, ... Not so simple due to 'dots' not connecting / or getting completely lost , and much of IRS cure methods too easily seem designed to fail at critical junctures! Shirin Chahal, ( at Omni ) my lead lawyer, breezed through this episode, even at the 11th hr, I came very close to a final pmt default in an extraordinary OIC deal! She was highly professional, + warm & personal, great combo, she was an asset to both me, and her employer! Gets my highest rating on all levels

Tax Help
My IRS problems consumed me for years, and I was so fearful in dealing with the issue to get current. It was such an overwhelming feeling to approach the process to settle my tax debt, as penalties continued to rack up and my balance became more unmanageable every day. I met with Shirin, and she immediately took my situation head on with confidence and an articulate plan to negotiate an offer to help me get on my feet. Shirin effectively worked with the IRS to work out options for me to start fresh, be current, and relieved so much stress in my life. I would recommend to anyone who is underwater with taxes, and feeling the inherent fear and despair it brings, to call Shirin immediately to assist with the problem. It truly changed my life.

Tax Issues - Business
Our outcome was better than we anticipated. Shirin Chahal's advice and counseling helped us reduce our tax debt. And thanks to her hard work and perseverance, we also received an abatement. I am so grateful that Shirin continued to work on our case, even when we thought there was no hope. Tax matters are complicated, and can be frustrating at times. Shirin not only understood the legalities, but was also able to understand our emotional response to situations we were facing. During the time Shirin represented our business, her professionalism was outstanding. Shirin was always available for questions and explained matters in terms we understood. Whenever we contacted her, she always made time to discuss our case. I would definitely recommend Shirin Chahal for your legal matters.

Removing Penalties for Back Taxes
Shirin saved us $10,000 in Back taxes net. She was very professional and handled the case in a very timely manner. Before she took over the job we were not impressed with Omni, but she did everything without increasing the price on our work and completed it without making a mistake. I would recommend her anytime for this type of work.

Tax Penalty Relief
My husband and I worked with Shirin for a couple years, attempting to resolve our debt and subsequent penalty issues with the IRS. We had previously enlisted the services of a tax relief company (at a huge price) which mislead us, neglected us, and ultimately went bankrupt. We were lucky enough to have our case assigned to Shirin. I’m sure there are more complicated cases, but it certainly seemed our case suffered from a lot of ambiguity. Shirin was tireless in her attempts to work with the IRS on our behalf. We sent her reams of documentation, which she and her team reviewed and encapsulated into a persuasive case for relieving us of the penalties that had been assessed. She provided us with consistent and wise advice throughout the process and remained in constant contact with us. Although we never met face-to-face, I considered her more than an advocate. It is difficult, at best, to be personable with a client long distance, but I never doubted Shirin’s commitment to us and the resolution for our issues with the IRS.

Help with Copyright Infringement
We hired Shirin to help us with a copyright infringement matter involving the use of logos we weren't licensed to sell. She was a constant professional who kept us informed during the entire process. She dealt with the problem and made it go away very quickly. We are very thankful for her help and knowledge and would recommend her to anyone. Thank you Shirin.

Best attorney I've ever worked with!
I was going through an extremely stressful time with my taxes in the aftermath of trouble at my business. Shirin was able to immediately get an abatement of tax penalties for me with the IRS worth $15,000! Thereafter, she continued to be responsive and did an amazing job guiding me through my various issues. I've dealt with a great deal of other attorneys on probate and business litigation matters, but I was most impressed with Shirin.

Landlord Settlement
Shirin Chahal did a great job following up with my case against my Landlord. Overall a very positive experience, in a town where Landlords really have the upper hand (Boulder). I did feel so much better having an advocate, however, I ended up having to pay a much larger settlement fee than I expected. I did find that settling the case was more the focus than noting that I couldn't really afford to pay that much and didn't really have the money and they were unsuccessful in negotiating a 60-day payment plan (so had to pay in 30 days). The follow up from Shirin afterwards to make sure I had honored my end of the agreement was very intensive, which I appreciated. Shirin is very personable and a go-getter.
