DTLA Client Review

“I honestly cannot say enough good things about Farid. I never even truly became his client, as in I never paid him a single cent, and he helped me get my case settled with my current lawyer. I had accidentally contacted Farid’s firm in an attempt to contact my lawyer, who had ignored me for months. Farid contacted me himself within minutes of me talking to a live representative of theirs online (and this was really late at night, too).”
