  • I would just like to share a very, very long overdue recommendation for Nasir Aziz. I had the pleasure of meeting Nasir early last year, around this time. Myself and my partner are very grateful for the professional service that Nasir provided us and for the massive help he was in accomplishing our goals with regards to our housing disrepair legal issue. Nasir made me feel as though he was always available to help throughout the entire process. From our first meeting, until we had been found suitable housing and had been removed from the devastating hazard that was our living situation at the time. During meetings Nasir always took time and care to make sure that we fully understood everything that he discussed with us and what our next steps would be. It was always a pleasure meeting with Nasir. On behalf of myself, my partner and our twin girls,, we would like to thank him very much.
  • Thank you for all your hard work and understanding my situation and taking me on board. I am very grateful.
