Today, these hardships benefit and serve his valuable clients and allows him to empathize with his hard-working clients. Working with clients to help maintain their dignity as well as the firm’s integrity is the most fulfilling part of his job. Aggressively and passionately working to resolve client issues also gives him a great sense of satisfaction.
On the weekends, Mr. Fazli enjoys arguing with his physician-scientist wife. He also takes great joy in spending time with his kids while teaching them the law of the land and how to advocate for others.
