– M. H.
“As someone who has hired Nader Hasan in the past (multiple times), I can tell you from personal experiences that he is THE BEST. You won’t find a lawyer who is so cool, calm and collected and who knows how to handle a tough case and control the court room. Personally, I was facing a tough DWI case with overwhelming evidence stacked against me. What could have been minimum of 5 days in Jail, Nader negotiated a deal for no Jail time! Dodged a MASSIVE bullet, especially as a business owner. All in all, 5 STAR Attorney who is fair, trustworthy and has tremendous integrity and always the best intentions.”
– John-Luke Braun
“Nader Hasan assisted me with a Traffic Summons. He was extremely approachable, fair and honest about the potential outcome. He and his office assisted me to collect the relevant case information and kept me informed with great communication. The result very favorable. I am very glad to have an Attorney with such poise and integrity at my side and expect that we will begin to rely on his credentials and network of Attorneys for more legal assistance in the future.”
“Our family found Mr. Hasan to be approachable, knowledgeable, down to earth, compassionate and willing to offer advice that was not only helpful for our situation but for our lives. His consultation and subsequent representation led to positive resolution. Although this result was not guaranteed we felt confident that his help would lead us in this direction. Mr, Hasan provided an invaluable service, and we are indebted to him.”
