I recently sought consultation from FJG at a stressful and somewhat difficult time with in my business life. Bushra was incredibly reassuring and knowledgeable. He explained what would otherwise have been seemingly overwhelming dialogue into a meaningful course of action. The case settled quickly and amicably for both parties, which is a testament to his abilities. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
We are eternally grateful for all you did for X and for believing in us. You gave X a voice and that was something we couldn’t do. If it wasn’t for you I don’t think I would ever feel like I could move on from this and would always feel I let X down.
