A STRAIGHT-FORWARD AND COST-EFFECTIVE APPROACH
"I don’t speak ‘legal-ese’ when talking to my clients. I’m not just the law-talking guy who drafts documents. I give my clients clear, comprehensible answers and practical advice. The clock doesn’t start ticking the second they call; I work on having good relationships with my clients so that they are comfortable making the call in the first place.”
WHAT SETS HUSSEIN APART
"Because of my background as a refugee, I understand business owners' challenges, work ethic, and how they sometimes struggle to keep their heads above water. My family worked hard in family-owned business all our lives. I don't just give practical advice, I understand and sympathize with small business owners. My experience translates in a way that better serves my clients."
THE BEST PART OF THE JOB
“I really enjoy my client's successes and important milestones. If a client buys a business and I helped with that process, then I'm really happy. I share their joy, knowing I helped them fulfill one of their dreams. The way I see it, if an investor invests in a business and it’s growing, in a way, I'm helping the community and helping to satisfy their ambitions.”
A GROWING PRACTICE
“I’m very proud of our large and flourishing practice. I work with an excellent team. We all believe in the same principles: give premium service at a reasonable cost.”
