Fouad's Testimonials

I was able to sleep peacefully thanks to the CDLA team

Dear CDLA team,
I cannot thank you enough for the court outcome today. Mr Fouad represented me with all the commitment, energy, information, compassion that I felt myself very well represented at the very onset. During the proceedings, I was very nervous and blank at times just hoping for the best. Mr Fouad kept his persistence to convince the judge of the reality I was facing. The judge took almost 20 minutes in recapping my whole situation and in the end giving me the freedom I deserved. I thank Mr Fouad from the bottom of my heart. The reality has yet to seep in but the next few days I will sleep peacefully and relaxed only because of what Mr Fouad did over and above for my case. I thank him and the CDLA team again.
Regards, KS
