Shivji Law was referred to me by a colleague at my squash club. The law firm assisted us with the purchase of our new property. Farouk and his team did a great job of handling our rush closing. During our meeting Farouk did an excellent job of explaining all the legal documents and answering all of our questions. I was very happy with the level of service at Shivji Law and I found the fees to be very reasonable. I will be sure to recommend them to friends and colleagues.

I would highly recommend Shivji Law to anyone needed a good real estate lawyer.

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Farouk and his team at Shivji Law recently in purchasing our first home and of course, we were nervous. He walked us through the entire process, through the legal lingo and dealt with our bank. He completed everything without a hitch and within a short period. We never once worried about the process dragging on with Farouk like we heard with other Real Estate Lawyers. It went so smoothly, I recommended him to a colleague of mine and I’d do it again. Great service, professional and gives great focus to his clients. Thanks again!

His team had everything prepped and instructions clearly laid out, when it was time to sign the documents, Mr.Shivji explained each document in a very clear and easy to understand manner . All questions we(my family) have asked have been answered. It was a very professional transaction and we felt been very well served.
