What Our Clients Are Saying

Ismail and his team were invaluable in helping us through a difficult time. The attorneys at TALG are confident, smart, and professional litigation attorneys who understand the financial impacts of their decisions on the bottom line. We trusted them to protect our business against a completely frivolous lawsuit and not only did they exceed all expectations, they were able to do so at ½ the cost of other firms in the market because their business model is so lean. We are very pleased with our civil litigation results and would highly recommend TALG to represent your best interests.
