This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.
| Consulted Attorney
He had great energy and attitude from the time he entered the room
We have only had one meeting with him but he ensures us that we should feel confident. That is more than anything that has happened in the past. I would recommend him to anyone needing assistance.

I had the please of meeting Salim prior to his joining his present firm. He kept in touch with me and helped with my recent legal affairs. He is a very knowledgeable, professional and caring person.
