"Shereef Akeel is a skilled counselor who helped me through a tough employment lawsuit after an EEOC claim. Mr. Akeel is not only a knowledgeable attorney, but an out of the box thinker. He believed in my case from the very beginning, despite many others disinterest in a very convoluted case. He strongly believes that a person's credibility and reputation are worth fighting for. Shereef is tenacious when he needs to be, and a kind man who has a great sense of humor. He is trustworthy and a straight shooter who looks out for his clients from beginning to end. He is definitely a champion for those without a voice."

"Tried to call and set up an intake interview. The girl that answered the phone was so rude. Left me on hold 18 min, then when she was asking questions, She asked what was my past position. I advised her that I was still currently employed at the same position. Her response was to mutter "what the f@*&" under her breath. I hung up. If this is who they have answering their phones, I can only imagine what the attorneys are like !!!"
