Jordan and his team are the best at what they do. His professionalism is nothing but superior and made the whole process easy and stress free. There wasn't a single objective that he couldn't overcome. Jordan was nothing but honest, transparent, and easy to work with. Never at one point did I feel he wasn't trustworthy. He guided me in the right direction to achieve the best possible outcome, and succeeded. I wouldn't recommend anyone else but El-Hag & Associates!

I hired Jordan to take a look at a recent employment agreement. Unlike other lawyers, it was a pleasure communicating with him. We had an initial phone call and within 2 hours he read the documents, attached notes to specific parts of it and was able to break it down for me in plain English. He has been available for follow up questions without demanding additional pay - which I appreciate. I work in the psychiatry field and have a very good sense for people and their trustworthiness. I will definitely be coming back to Jordan for any future legal advice associated with my business. I also plan to recommend him to colleagues, friends and family. A+ experience!

I was discouraged by other firms who told me it wasn’t worth effort. After the first time speaking with Jordan El-Hag I decided to place my faith in him. He was patient and meticulous. Always keeping me up to date with the case. When curveballs would come my way the team would reassure me not to worry. I will recommend everyone I know to El Hag and Associates.
