“Razia Jogi was absolutely phenomenal, she put her own time on hold to accompany me with the issues I was having and giving me constant care and help, Razia went above and beyond. I couldn’t have asked for anyone better to represent me and I will forever be grateful for her kindness, assistance, and her caring nature.”
