I have had the privilege of watching Abbas and his partner at work on several occasions. He is always well prepared for hearings and trial. He is very professional and attentive to his client’s needs. He is great at settling cases, but does not hesitate to take a case to trial, when it is in his clients’ best interests. I highly endorse Abbas.
