Pamela Thakur is EXCEPTIONAL!

Pamela was very helpful, Pamela is incredibly knowledgeable, and professional. I was accused for fraud. Which I didn’t do. I was terrified and panicked. Pamela resolved the matter within a month. I highly recommend her.

You have found your lawyer who works in your best interest…
Pamela went above and beyond my expectations for my case! I didn’t expect such a great outcome! I never thought that as a single mother, a person novice in this country and it’s legal system would ever have a chance to stand against a reputed builder and fight what was rightfully mine and win too. Pamela and her team of experts gave me that confidence and worked diligently on my case. Pamela was patient, kept her word and was very understanding! She answered all my questions, even when I asked them several times! If myself or anyone I know ever need anything, I know where I would go or recommend!

Dedicated & Timely
It only took a brief summary of my story for Pamela to hear me out in depth and really elaborate on my case. She has been very sympathetic and made sure to be as timely as she can be to complete my case. Her and her team have been very responsive to any of my questions. I thought it was going to take longer, but it was the actual opposite. I am very pleased with the outcome and recommend Pamela to anyone!

Superb Attorney and Firm
Pamela Thakur and the Thakur Law Firm are excellent advocates, compassionate educators, and sharp litigators. Pamela’s sound advice, quick response to inquiries, and conscientious drafting made a very scary and precarious situation bearable. She effectively negotiated and settled a catastrophic default judgment, to a manageable settlement. Highly recommended.

Amazing lawyer & team
I hired Pamela and her team to represent me on a civil litigation case against my former employer in May of 2019. I have settled my case by September of the same year. Pamela and her team worked very hard and diligently in getting my case resolve in a matter of months. She is very intelligent, caring and very hands-on attorney. Pamela truly cares about her clients and fights for what they fully deserves. Needless to say I am very happy with my settlement. I highly recommend her to anyone who has issues with employments and I will definitely refer her to friends and families with the same issues. Thank you Pamela!

Excellent experience!
I had the best experience with Pamela as my lawyer, I couldn’t have been more spot on with my choosing. She's extremely intelligent and really knows what she is doing to win your case. Her and her team really saw the smallest of details to help with my case and it was just amazing to see unfold. Not only is she compassionate and more than willing to help accommodate all your needs in a timely manner, she'll turn into a lion and pounce on your opponent if she has to. Highly recommended definitely someone you could trust!!! Really enjoyed my time with Thakur law firm dealing with such a scary situation. So thanks guys!

Client
I had never thought I would need an attorney for anything let alone to bring a lawsuit against someone. I was very apprehensive and unsure if I was just wasting my time. Pamela's consultation meeting put me at ease immediately and made me feel I was doing the right thing. Because of that first impression, I hired Pamela and she did not disappoint. She was always up front with me about the situation and the various outcomes that might ensue. She always backed up my case with the law and precedent. Pamela always made sure I understood what she was proposing in our legal filings and she always made sure she was not doing anything that I was not aware of. A consummate professional, she got my case settled to my satisfaction without having to go to court. Pamela will be my attorney for anything legal that might arise in my future. She has my absolute trust and confidence.

Helpful, transparent, fair, and successful
I was referred to Pamela Tahim Thakur after I what I thought to be a wrongful termination. In a very stressful situation, Pamela and her team were able to guide me to the best course of action, direct me to provide them the information needed, and manage my expectations as far as time, impact, and outcome.

Refuge In a tumultuous storm is what stands out most !
My story was one of a Giant Goliath overwhelming the small guy. The short of story is that after 2years of court battles, motions and costly out of state depositions, we still prevailed. Every step of the way, Pamela and her team of professionals was there for me and made it affordable and my wife and i are so grateful. If real respect for your wishes are important to you, but you also NEED professional legal representation , Pamela Thakur law firm can be that CALM that we so desperate need when under legal pressure. I could go on with this review until next Christmas and still have some good and nice things to reiterate about Pamela. That is just how strongly we appreciate the professional help that she provided us. Considering we traveled out of city and state to conduct depositions at my expense. We also made many court appearances to address motions that were launched against me. I think i have a good foundation of information to judge Pamela Thakur's character and intelligence as being superb. YOU WILL LIKE HOW THEY MAKE YOU FEEL!

SO Thankful for Pamela and Thakur Law Firm, APC!!
After 40 years of covering me plus an old court order to continue my coverage after an accident, my health insurer dropped me when Obamacare came in 2014. After 2 1/2 years of searching for a lawyer to fight for me, Pamela was the only one who had enough Tiger in her to take on my case! Although we were unable to get my insurance reinstated as it was before due to some new laws, Pamela pushed on and did get me a monetary settlement. Woohoo! Pamela really cares about her clients and will do everything she possibly can to serve them well. She is compassionate with a passionate desire to help others, otherwise she would not have bothered to become a lawyer. I trust Pamela and her office with every detail of my personal and business information. I highly recommend Pamela and Thakur Law Firm, APC!!

Pamela did a great job of helping me understand my position in a sensitive legal matter. Careful and well articulated legal positions, along with the risks, were communicated to me during each call. I felt fortunate to have such a personable attorney helping me navigate sophisticated legal issues.

Excellent Attorney for our Tax Court case
Pamela was understanding and persistent with our Tax Court case, and she kept us updated throughout the process. Overall we were very happy with how she handled our case and the favorable outcome. We would absolutely recommend Pamela.

Labor Dispute
I feel so lucky and fortunate to have found Pamela & the firm that she works for. I was in a Labor Lawsuit with a former employee. The attorney that I originally had never kept me informed of what was going on with the case. Pamela substituted in approximately a month before we were scheduled to go to trial. She was dedicated to our case, very attentive and on top of things. She kept me informed of everything and forwarded emails that were exchanged. She has a way of making you feel at ease. She is very self assured at what she does which makes you feel confident in her. She was always prepared for any and all situations. Overall, Pamela and her team are all very organized , professional and pleasant to work with. I plan on using Pamela's expertise for any future legal advise or disputes we may come across. I highly recommend Pamela Tahim.

Pamela is the Rocky of the Legal World
After having an attorney tell me that I would not have a case against the insurance company, Pamela felt the opposite and scored a great success for me. Pamela was very responsive, answered phone calls, and although no one wants to hire an attorney, it's good to know that Pamela is here if we need her.

We felt Confident with Pamela Tahim as our Lawyer.
Pamela Tahim impressed me from my first meeting with her. I had met several lawyers, but Pamela was the one lawyer who had the intelligence and knowledge of the law to win our case. Being sued by a litigious neighbor was very stressful; Pamela remained dedicated to our case through the whole ordeal and helped us to remain hopeful until we prevailed. Thank you, Pamela!

"Working alongside Pamela on many matters has taught me one thing about how she practices law, which is why I value working at The Thakur Law firm, A.P.C.: Every case has a unique set of facts and circumstances and is to be treated as such. I am grateful work to for Pamela's firm because Pamela values the extra effort an attorney or staff member puts into a case to ensure the best results for the client, which Pamela also embodies in her own practice as the managing attorney.
