DTLA Client Review

“Farid was great! My boyfriend and I retained him in April 2017, as we were rear ended on the I101 . Our car was totaled and we were badly injured. On a family member’s recommendation, we took a chance and contacted Farid for help with the process. After the whole ordeal, the last thing we wanted to do was deal with insurance companies.”
