"Upon an unexpected termination from my job, I was referred to Imtiaz for legal counsel regarding a settlement. Imtiaz was clear-headed and forward thinking, while I was confused and afraid after the termination. He presented logical options for the way forward, discussed the possible scenarios with me, and guided me throughout the entire process. His communication was timely and logical, seeking what was best for me and reasonable to my employer. In the end, I received the settlement I wanted and ended on a high note with my employer. I will absolutely use Imtiaz for any legal needs in the future."
