Sheraz handled my consent divorce in DC. He is very professional and knowledgeable. I always felt like he was on top of everything and he kept me very informed through the process. He is also a very personable guy, which made this difficult personal situation easier. I HIGHLY recommend his services.Jan 16, 2019Review from Google
Sheraz provided sound and grounded advice specific to my circumstance. Though not the "shark" I wanted, definitely the right guy for the job after explaining the process of divorce, and providing realistic expectations for my situation. I would highly recommend him if you do not have a high net worth or extremely complicated case.Sep 17, 2018Review from Google
Sheraz is THE MAN! He keeps his word, follows up with you, and weighs the pros and cons of decision that need to be made. He isn't one of those lawyers that just tries to "increase the bill". When you go with him you are getting a PARTNER! He knows the law very well, and can guide you from start to finish.one thing that stood out to me, was his willingness to always respond to my emails and calls. He has good ethics and morals!Sheraz was always prepared and taking notes. No detail was ever to small. Without a doubt, if I ever have questions or concerns about something, and I need to get a lawyer, sheraz is my guy!Dec 12, 2018Review from Google
