Excellent Service
Haleh Naimi represented us in a business dispute against our former contractor and settled our case in six months. She has strong command of the law, great timing, and strategy to resolve our case without going to trial. We're very happy with the results and recommend her firm highly.

Knowledgeable Business Lawyer
We met with Ms. Naimi about the sale of our restaurant and she advised us on the tax issues we would face with the prospective deal. She's very knowledgeable, pragmatic and helped guide us through a difficult negotiation. She has great timing, is very resourceful, and her fees were reasonable.

Excellent work on my audit
Ms. Naimi has represented us on two different cases and a tax audit. She did a great job. We felt like she really cared about the success of our cases.
