  • I would highly recommend CDLA

    I would highly recommend CDLA. They know what they are doing. I met with a lot of lawyers before CDLA but I finally decided to go with them. Fahim was there to help me on my day of need. I believe him to be very knowledgeable. He is a very ethical person and gives you a very thorough advice of all the options available. I was new to the law system and Fahim guided me through the process, with constant communication, transparency and detailed advice about my matter. Fahim is very hard working, always going over and beyond in preparing for the case. He explores all angles to get the best possible outcome. Fahim is very professional and respectful at court. Yet he does not back down from a fight even when the court is against him. He always has the client’s best interests in his mind. When asked a question by the Magistrate, Fahim just does not provide one or two word response, he would submit in length and with persuasion. It is easy for anyone listening to him to come around to his point of view and understand his reasoning. So when you are in trouble and need someone experienced, knowledgeable, persuasive and a fighter, CDLA is the place to go.
