Very Professional & Generous
I was very upset, when i met Mr. Smaili, as i had lost almost everything i saved from last 10 years and invested in the company i trusted on and i was employed with. Mr. Smaili took care of my case very personal and processed so efficiently that it got closed with getting my investment back along with a portion of my damages & profit share without wasting any time within 90 days. Thank you so much again for all that you have done and especially for being so supportive and understanding with me & generous.

Keep Looking
I had hired Jihad after we were robbed and he had his hand out for money at ever communication. He failed to do a thing for the case, other then to ask for more money. I did it myself and recovered 100k without him. His greed was overwhelming.
