Strong Knowledge of the Law
Richard Scott Houtz and Shirazi Law Firm did an excellent job with my case. It was a particularly traumatizing time in my life as a result of what happened to me. Richard demonstrated extreme professionalism and strong knowledge of the law, which gave me a sense of security. He was easily accessible and showed great effort in handling my case. I am gratified with the outcome and would highly recommend Shirazi Law Firm.
