Due to an enhancement of having two dui/owi in 5 years I was up against a class D felony charge. It took a little time but thanks to Zaki I was able to get the D dismissed and ended up with a C misdemeanor, with only 60 days of probation. I was truly looking for a dismissal in this case but through his hard work and diligence I will not have to worry about a felony for the rest of my life. There are to many innocent people in our prisons now a days and thanks to Zaki I will not be one of them. Thanks again Zaki.

I hired Zaki in may of 2012 to handle my criminal case. The court proceedings were continued and delayed so many times that the case is just now finally over, with the defendant being found not guilty, might I add. I work out of town and had to travel several hundred miles in most cases to return for my court appearances. Zaki and his staff were great about keeping me informed and up to date on changes being made so that I did not have to miss work or travel without reason. They also made me feel very comfortable about my situation always showing full confidence in myself and my side of the story. Intelligent, Charismatic, Prepared, and Caring are all words that I would use to describe Zaki, however, once inside the courtroom there is only one way to describe him and that is PROFESSIONAL! No matter what the Prosecutor did (i.e. not remembering how she made the projector work during the defense's first witness.) Zaki smiled and remain professional. Throughout the trial my Mother was in the courtroom and Zaki could tell that she was worried. He constantly kept checking on Her and reminding Her that everything was going to be ok. Then once everything was final and we had time to relax and enjoy life again Zaki gave a courtesy call to my Mother just to make sure she was doing ok. No obligation, no incentive just good old fashion caring and concern for another human being. Would I recommend this Lawyer to a friend? YES! But most importantly if I ever again find myself on the wrong side of a bad situation I will hire him! (Although I really hope there is never a reason for me to need his services again!)

Zaki did an excellent job. He got me pled down to a lesser charge in my case. I definitely appreciate all the time and effort he put into the case to leave me in a better situation then what I was looking at. Money well spent!

Zaki was appointed as my public defender. He kept me well informed about the case as we prepared for jury trial. He did a very good job in the court room. Took my case seriously. I was facing 20 years and Zaki worked hard and we received a hung jury- 11 not guilty 1 guilty.

Words can't formulate or be pronounced out of my mouth when trying to describe Zaki Ali. This is the best trial lawyer in the state of Indiana. Not only would I recommend this attorney, but, I will also become an advocate for him. Don't go to trial without Zaki Ali. I received a Not Guilty Verdict in 13 minutes.

Zaki, was very detailed on my case and he understood what and how to address the courts.

Mr. Ali and his associates kept me updated throughout the whole process. They were quick to respond
To all of my questions went into court with confidence due to the very proffessional and positive attitude that Zaki Ali presents in the court room. I walked out on a diversion for possesion of marijuana and failure to yield no fines due. Excellent representation 100% Recommended.

Mr. Ali handled a drug case for me and I was so scared I was going to prison, but I got a second chance because of Mr Ali....He new that I was a good person inside and he worked with me and my family and got me probation instead of prison time.....I just want to say MR. ALI IS THE BEST PROFESSIONAL, EXCELLENT ATTORNEY I HAVE EVER MEET AND I WANT TO THANK HIM FOR A JOB WELL DONE....

A few years ago I was accused and convicted of domestic violence and after the verdict was made I was forced too live with a felony on my record before this alleged incident I didn't have a criminal record at all. Well the lawyer that I had didn't give me any positive options,but when I met "Zaki Ali" he told me I should petition for(AMS) Alternative Misdemeanor Sentencing and guess what as of this week I am person no longer living with a felony on my record... At this time I would like too thank Mr. Zaki Ali and his staff for there incredible job that they did for me and I most definitely would recommend him for legal representation.

I was charge with a DUI. Zaki got me through that as quick and painless as possible.Six months later I was charded with a DUI and A Probation violation. He was able to get the courtto let me post bail and eventually drop the probation violation. The DUI charge and the HTV was a little tougher. Zaki gave me a big list of things to do and told me to get them completed and he would be able to get my license back. It took eighteen month and a lot of work but today I have a valid license.I was told by three other attorneys that it could not be done. I honestly believe that no one but Zaki Ali could have got this done. His hard work and knowledge and determination to get this done for me was unbelievable.

I was in need of an attorney for a DWI offense. I was recommended to 2 different attorney's. The first attorney I called I received a voicemail, I then called Zaki's office and his staff was very helpful and was sincerely concerned with my case. His office staff was very professional and motivated. I had my first meeting with Zaki approximately 2 weeks later at 6:30 in the evening. I don't know very many attorney's who love what they do more than Zaki to stay after hours to meet with clients. Zaki was very eager to take my case and was very honest and forward with me. He got me out of my DUI offense and the state dismissed everything. I highly recommend Zaki if you ever make the mistake of driving after one has had some drinks.

Zaki is a man of his word. Very knowledgable of the laws. I would refer him to anyone in need.

I had a difficult matter that other lawyers wouldn't touch. Not only was Zaki willing to help, but resolved my case with professionalism and determination. I owe him a lot.

I met with Zaki in march of 2011, to discuss a drivers license which had been suspended since 1996 (HTV). I was told by a Judge that I would never again be allowed to drive. After meeting with Zaki and he had an opportunity to examine all of the facts, he took my case. He simply gave me a price and said he could do this, and it should be simple. Little did I know. There was an obsticle at every turn. The BMV had changes in requirements, the court lost paperwork it was honestly a nightmare. A lesser attorney, or a man with questionable resolve, would have quit and wished me well, I know that because it has happened. Zaki did not, he saw it through to the end. Today, fifteen months later, I am a licensed driver who will always be grateful to Zaki and Julie, for their persistance, professionalism and integrity.
I did work very hard to get where I am at, but if someone doesn't believe that you have made the necessary changes, and is willing to go to bat for you, it sometimes seems as though it was a waste of time. I know that Zaki is an outstanding attorney, no question about that, but to me more importantly he is a better man.
Zaki, I thank you, and just for the record you would have made one outstanding Marine Corps Officer.

I hired Zaki Ali to represent me in a possession of marijuana case. I have a lengthy criminal background but I hadn't been in any trouble in almost 20 years. When I first consulted with Zaki I explained to him that I had consulted with a few other lawyers that were cheaper than him. With alot of confidence, Zaki told me that if I felt that the "other" lawyers could do what he could do he would have no hard feelings if I hired one of them. He didn't make any promises but I could tell that this guy knew what he was doing. I was instantly sold and paid him in full before I left his office. Zaki's confidence, experience and knowledge of the law definately makes him a must have lawyer for any legal matter. Because of Zaki Ali my charges were dismissed!!! I have alot of respect for this man but I don't plan on ever being in a situation to have to hire him again. However, I do recommend Zaki to anyone who happens to find themselves in a legal matter.

I was wrongfully accused and arrested for a Class D Felony Theft charge. I came to the office to meet with Zaki Ali. I told him my story. I also told him that I was innocent. I was relieved when he told me that he believed me, and he would be willing to take my case. I was devastated by the charges, and I wanted an attorney who would work hard for me . I chose the right one. My case was in the courts for 2 years, then I got a date for trial. Two days before my trial I received the wonderful news. The charges had been dropped. Zaki did not stop there though. He fought for an expongement of my records. We also won this case. I would highly recommend Zaki Ali.S

By the time I turned 27 I was considered a habitual traffic offender and had violated a driving probation by getting more speeding tickets. He resolved this mishap promptly... I was thankful but really foolish yet again and got a DUI and a DWS charge... I thought it was the end of the road for me but he took care of me. Be honest with Mr.Ali and his office and they will be honest with you...

Mr. Ali work with me on post conviction relief. I had a D felony that was over 15 years old. I went to three other lawyers before meeting with Zaki all of them told me they could not help. I explained my striation to Zaki and he said he would find a way to help. It took some time to get done but he found a way to help. I cannot say enough great things about Zaki his passion and zeal for justice for his clients is unmatched. The professionalism and courtesy of Zaki and his office staff was refreshing after talking to the other lawyers. If you want someone who will fight for justice for you Zaki is who I will recommend to anyone I know. Zaki has help to improve my life by getting this conviction removed it help me tremendously at my job and has open the door to a future in law enforcement for me. He has not only helped by getting the felony removed he has also personal spoke to a police chief for me and gave his endorsement. This is just one more example of how dedicated and committed he is to help.

I just got out of high school and got charged with an OWI. I was on my way to college in the fall and Mr. Ali did everything he could to make sure the court process did not interfere with my studies. He got the OWI reduced to PI with no probation. He did not want me to have to deal with probation while attending college. He truly cared and believed in me. He wanted to do everything he could to make sure this did not get in the way of my success as a student and my future success in my career.

Mr. Ali is insightful and confidant. When facing serious charges, you need to be sure of your representation. Zaki Ali has the experience and vast knowledge of the law. This kind of support system can not be found just anywhere. More than a letterhead, or legal credentials, he is a person who cares. He has the knowledge to give the best possible defense.
He got my 4 felonies reduced to 1 misdemeanor charge and just 1 year probation!!!!!
