AT THE REQUEST OF CLIENT
In early 2009, we needed a great litigation lawyer for a particularly difficult regulatory matter. Pradeep Chand meet with us only two days after our initial phone call. He took time to understand our situation and to explain his approach to litigation. Pradeep's guidance, counsel and style yielded the desired results. Pradeep has represented us on subsequent litigation matters, all with successful results for our establishment.
Pradeep has earned our complete confidence. We now rely on his guidance and direction on all liquor license and litigation matters. We look forward to working with him for many years to come.

He has my highest recommendation.
