Testimonials

I called Denis to handle our first lawsuit. He walked me through the process, tailored a plan specific to my needs, and took care of everything from start to finish.
— Sean Reilly, Founder, Moustache Coffee Club
 
We had a product recall issue come up, and we knew we needed experienced counsel to help navigate the legal issues involved. Nabil helped us construct an action plan, coordinated our team on the ground, and dealt with two different federal agencies to ensure that our business operated smoothly during the recall. He was great to work with and made sure this one-time issue was dealt with efficiently.
— Mike O'Connell, Garage Equipment Supply
 
Denis possesses the rare gift of intuitively communicating even the most complex concepts to a jury. If trials are about storytelling—and they always are—you will find no finer teller of stories than Denis Shmidt.
— David Chiang, LA County Prosecutor
 
I was sued by two plaintiffs for thousands of dollars in damages. I knew they were being deceptive, but I didn’t know what to do. I almost settled the case and paid the plaintiffs because I was hesitant about going to court, but then a friend referred me to Nabil. He counseled me through how the lawsuit would unfold and encouraged me to stand my ground and defend my rights. I’m so happy I listened because in the end, Nabil’s knowledge of the law and steady guidance through the entire process made all the difference. The judge ruled in my favor, and I didn’t pay the plaintiffs a penny. Nabil is definitely my go-to lawyer for any future problems.
— Allyson Rennell, Copywriter
 
As an early-stage startup, I am extremely grateful for the knowledge and expertise Denis provided during a critical juncture within our company. Denis not only advised us on legal risks, but supported us through his research and even leveraged his own legal network to work on solutions that mattered to our advisors and investors. Orsus Gate gave us confidence instead of conjecture from what felt like a legal partner truly vested into the core of our business.
— Ramy Ballout, Founder, AirLinked
