Great experience
Mr. Vakili was a great lawyer to work with. He took his time to explain my situation to me and had lots of knowledge about my case which involved business litigation. He spent lots of time on my case and I would recommend him to everyone. He spent time to review my case. It was an honor to know such great lawyer and person to trust.
