Great attorney. Hard working, knowledgeable. I was arrested with prostitution and operating a massage parlor wrong hours. I was so worried and depressed. That caused me tremendous hardship. I had a public defender in the beginning. The P.D. wanted me to plead guilty and I said no because I was not guilty.
I had interviews with several other attorney's prior to meeting with Ibrahim Elias Khawaja. None of them made me feel comfortable like Mr. Khawaja. He listened to me and actually cared about my case. He was very understanding and his retainer fee was reasonable to other attorneys in the area. He went way beyond what was expected.
He took time to look at the evidence an effective defense. His familiarity with the courts and his knowledge of stand out, and he is well known and well respected in the prosecutor's office and with the police and sheriffs departments. With my attorney's help, the judge allowed a very favorable outcome. No conviction and all charges dismissed. He always kept me informed of my case and returned my phone calls promptly. I cannot thank him enough for what he did for my case. I was very satisfied with the result.
I am thankful from the bottom of my heart. Also I want to thank my friend Nate who recommened Ibrahim Elias Khawaja to defend me in a rather complicated criminal case. Thanks to God for bringing back my life with this dismissal.

Ibrahim Khawaja is fearless and graceful in the courtroom. He tactfully approached my complex case with poise; persisting until the finest outcome was achieved. I was consistently impressed with his level of professionalism, optimism, and desire to fight for his clients. Ibrahim defends with passionate skill and knowledge of law, making him capable of achieving incredible results. I put full trust in Ibrahim and my case couldn’t have ended better! He comes with my highest recommendation.

I am someone who reads reviews on everything before making a purchase. For example, every major appliance or electronics item that I bought, I did major research to make sure I was getting the best product. So when it came down to finding someone to defend me in my criminal case, I made sure to research and find the best attorney I could. That person happened to be Ibrahim Khawaja. After stumbling upon Avvo, I went through several attorney reviews, hours of time spent researching and reading (slight OCD lol) because this was very important to me. I was significantly stressed out. I finally went and met the final few that I chose out of the many on here, and Ibrahim won me over immediately.
After the first court date, he could tell I was stressed because they were not offering me any chance of a dismissal. He looked me in my eyes with a smile told me I have nothing to worry about. He told me to relax and that "he would fight for me to get this dismissed". Me being naturally skeptical of someone saying that to me who I just met, I believed him, but I was still stressed out in the back of my mind.
Well fast forward to last month, Ibrahim fought for me like he said and got me in a position where God willing, I will be getting my case dismissed. He told me from Day 1 not to worry, and just last month smiled and told me "I told you there was nothing to worry about." This guy is legit. He answers calls, responds to your missed calls if he was in court, and always is a very positive and optimistic guy and fights for you. I highly recommend him to anyone who was stressed out like myself, or anyone else who needs someone who will get you great results!

Mr. Khawaja represented my 17 yr old son after his first run-in with the law. We had no idea what to do or expect since it was our first time in a courtroom. He treated my son like a young man who made an error in judgement, not a delinquent, which I greatly appreciated. He was confident, firm, and caring. He was able to negotiate logical terms with the DA that we could meet in order to get the charges dropped, much to our relief. I hope to not return, but if I do, my first call will be to Mr. Khawaja.

What can I say about this man other than he is an absolutely gifted lawyer. I got arrested for theft and quickly hired Mr. Khawaja because I truly felt he would be able to help me with my case and he did. He is extremely responsive, caring and trustworthy and does his job with integrity. I respect him as a person and a professional. He truly cares about his clients and wants the best for them. I was extremely nervous about my case and he put my mind at ease and told me not to worry about anything. He is very knowledgeable about the law, smart, and knows exactly what he's doing in the courtroom. This is the guy to hire. I am eternally grateful for what he has done for me so far and I am so glad I met him.

Mr. Khawaja was the court appointed attorney to our 28 year old son's case. Although Mr. Khawaja had to represent our son in court, he did not have to care about him and work to get our son the best judgement......but he did. Mr. Khawaja also did not have to return our call or update us after the hearing but he did. I believe that Mr. Khawaja doesn't just do his job, but instead he does his job with integrity and morals. I've found that to be rare in the lawyer world from my past experiences. Thanks Mr. Khawaja for making a difference in our family's future.

Ibrahim Khawaja represents what a top notch Lawyer should be. He fights for his clients and gets exemplary results. I witnessed this first hand as he fought for the dismissal of my case with court prosecutors who would not budge. He , of course, won the dismissal!! If you are looking for bold and agressive representation, then Ibrahim Khawaja is your man. There is a reason he is voted on of the top Lawyers in Houston year after year.

I did not have a chance of beating the case and was caught red handed but this lawyer found a way to get my case dismissed. I confessed and was caught on video committing the crime. This dude is the real deal and never did he sweat it always super confident telling me to chill. I still dont know how my case was dismissed. He walked out of courthouse with me and told me to stop stealing stuff with a smile on his face. Gangster lawyer. Straight up. $$$$$$$$$

Mr Khawaja is a masterful, bright, dedicated, experienced and great defense attorney. He is direct, logical and advocated on behalf of our nephew who was facing his second felony (2 - 25 years) for not registering with his probation officer. Khawaja worked diligently to break the cycle and advocate on our nephew's behalf so that he would avoid the dire consequences of his sentence and ultimately received a lesser sentence. Khawja acted with integrity, passion and skill. Our family will forever by grateful for his committment to fairness and justice.

Mr. Khawaja is a great attorney and I will recomend him any chance I get. My son has a long criminal backround and he was still able to get him the best deal possible. We are very thankful. He is very knowledgeable of the law and that was exactly what we needed. I was very impressed with him.
