    SAL was my attorney for a DUI I was charged with after a night out in Wrigleyville. I chose Sal after coming to this site because he made me feel comfortable and I could tell he listened to me becayse he remembered details from iur previous conversations. I would recommended Sal to anyone and even mire so if you have never been in trouble with the law and need someone you can trust.

    Mr. Sal Sheikh was very gracious with the time he gave our family in a situation we had not faced before. He listened to our concerns and was able to help us with a situation that was very embarrassing for our family. He has helped us in the past and is not judgmental of the current crisis we face. Thank you very much Sal Sheikh, God Bless You.

    Sal, very professional, personable and dedicated to my case. I came in worried and looking for advice in a situation I felt I couldn't take on alone. After meeting him he made me at ease about what to say and do to be best prepared for court. I'd highly recommend him to anyone who needs help in successfully winning their case.

    • I recommend Salim Sheikh.
    • I hired Salim 6-12 months ago.
    • Salim handled my State, Local And Municipal Law matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    Sal was knowledgeable/confident within this area of the City Code, and managed to get to my case knocked down to a lesser citation. Background: I was charged with a 'misdemeanor crime' after taking a leak behind a dumpster in a dark, empty alley in the middle of the night. In my hometown, we'd give someone a high-five for even having the courage to enter said-alley, but Chicago is hurting for funds (cite: the news) and so they are using young patrol officers to sneak around in the dark to find easy mone- oops I mean "criminals." I also saw them arrest several other guys later for basically being outside while drunk. This is an unfortunate police tactic that will deter tourism, much like other cute moves such as leasing a federal road project (I-90) to foreign toll investors for $1.83 billion. Got to love those politics.

    i got arrested at a Chicago roadside safety check. They charge me with a DUI because they found a tiny amount of cannabis in the vehicle. I went on a look out to find me a good lawyer to represent me in court. Another lawyer who i met told me about Sal and gave me his number, so i gave him a call. Best lawyer around.Great communication any concerns i might have he is just a call away. and you can always stop by the office. He even came into the office to see me on a Sunday!. if your looking for a criminal defense lawyer this is the person to call.

    Sal took initiative and really helped me out in a case where I had not kept up with my commitments for court. He got me an extension to take care of these things, and I am grateful. I thought I was going to get a violation and sent to jail because the judge said I had to complete everything by the next court date, and I didn't. I did not give Sal much to work with. He took what he had and got me an extension to fulfill my commitments for the courts.
