At Abda Law, every client will receive an initial consultation at no cost. At this point I will personally determine whether I can represent you. If I cannot represent you, I will likely be able to send you to a reputable attorney who can. 


I value each and every one of my clients. As such, I will guide you through every step of your case, keeping you informed, making sure you understand exactly what is going on, and advising you on the decisions that need to be made.
