We had a senior employee who we suspected of financial mishandling. Abbas first focused on gathering the facts of the case and connected us to independent experts who were able to piece together what happened and then led the severance and settlement negotiations that followed. He was professional and strategic, while providing thoughtful advice and leadership through the whole process. Abbas helped us weigh the options before us before taking the next step; and thankfully the matter was speedily resolved, with our interests and exposure protected. I would definitely work with him again and recommend him highly to friends, colleagues and family.

When I met with Abbas to set up my Trust. I had so many questions as to how to properly take care of my family. Abbas guided me in the right direction and we came up with wonderful solutions. Now my trust is complete and I feel so comfortable with the end result!

Abbas was very transparent and kept me up to date on my case. He gave me all the facts, kept on top of what needed to be done and was able to get favorable results! He gave me all the options and followed through every step until everything was resolved. I would definatley go to Abbas for additional legal needs and recommend him to others!

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.
