Mahesh Rajan, Esq.


The reputation of an attorney begins not in the courtroom, but in the eyes of the client. Building rapport is a two-way street and what a prospect thinks about an attorney is essential for gaining trust. Choosing the right attorney is no easier for a client than choosing the right client is for an attorney. The final decision always starts with the initial consultation where the bonds of the attorney-client relationship are formed.
