""Up-and-coming young attorney. Professional, dedicated, and very tenacious. Its not only about billable hours. Zafar understands the value of long term relationships and being a partner to his clients. My business has utilized him for a number of issues with great success and satisfaction. We have gone through 3 attorneys over the last few years. He is now our go-to attorney, and as much an advisor and partner. I'm a very critical individual and give him a near perfect rating. You can't go wrong working with him.""
""We like that Zafar is thorough, diligent and consults other opinions when matters have the potential to be gray. He listens well and makes you feel comfortable about picking up the phone for insight. He won't punch the clock until you've decided on actual *work* to be done. I can say that as consultants who work the same way, it's nice to have a lawyer who understands this builds better client rapport. As a result, Zafar is the first lawyer we call when we realize something needs a legal mind -- and we feel we're in good hands.""
