“Akbar dealt my case with the utmost professionalism, and was knowledgeable and honest with all the advice he gave. He was compassionate and understanding about the matter at hand, whilst remaining direct and proactive about the course of action that needed to be taken. I would highly recommend him for any legal matter.”
