"Quite simply the best! Ms. Halabi fought for me tooth and nail. In the end, she won the case. A great professional with a lot of experience. She followed the case to the millimeter and had excellent client communication (she always replied to my e-mails with incredible speed). It's a shame we can't put more stars. I would have gladly put 10."
