Client Reviews
Jonathan Bullard January 17, 2021
Kept in constant contact on the status of my case. Mr. Shakhan explained everything he was going to do and kept me updated on events as they happened. I received emails but also calls when necessary and he was very patient with how my schedule worked and allowed me to contact him whenever needed. I was extremely pleased!

Genghis hails from the Buckeye State. He attended the Ohio State University for undergrad and graduate studies where he majored in post-colonial literature and hoped to become a college professor.
