I contacted Shazad as the top rated lawyer for immigration in the Avvo directory. I had concerns about losing my job on TN visa, and my ability to be able to apply for benefits and cross the border.
I sent my questions to Shazad beforehand, and he had them researched and ready to answer immediately (all for a free consult!)
I contacted a few lawyers for a consult, and none-of-them knew the answers. Some of them even gave me incorrect information.
Shazad was knowledgable, friendly, and a pleasure to speak to. I'd have no hesitation about hiring him for immigration related questions. He seems like he'd be worth every dime.

I looked on this site for someone who can help me with multiple immigration questions. I enquired to a range of different people and Shahzad was quick to come back with a friendly response. He quickly set up a meeting via Skype and answered all my questions within the session. I am happy to say that I have agreed to hire him moving forward and will be meeting with him face to face in the next couple of weeks.

I had some rather complex questions on conditional residency and issues surrounding that and he was very knowledgeable of the issues.

I endorse this lawyer. Shahzad is great with start-ups. He is adept at structuring businesses in ways that benefit both founders and investors. He also works hard with his clients to help them get financing whether through a traditional public offering or through one of the creative alternatives that abound in the market today.
Ramina Dehkhoda, Real estate Attorney
I endorse this lawyer. Shahzad Qadri is very knowledgeable immigration attorney who has experience in dealing with very complex business immigration issues. He takes the time to understand the client's needs and always comes through for them.
