While facing numerous charges, including evading an officer, I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Shawky as my appointed Public Defender. Mr. Shawky LISTENED to me and supported my decision to plead not guilty. Mr. Shawky is an EXCELLENT investigator. He went to Lake Perris, where the incident happened, mapped the location and drew diagrams. He interviewed the witnesses. Once Mr. Shawky presented his findings to the DA, ALL CHARGES WERE DISMISSED. I am happy to have had Mr. Shawky represent me. If this is the kind of service he provided as a PD, I can just imagine the extraordinary service he provides independently without the bureaucracy.

I have been fortunate enough to trust my family by picking the best attorney I have ever experienced. I was prosecuted in San Bernardino County (which is a different county that Tarek is from) for a felony theft case with a strike prior. The police found the stolen property in my room and the DA wanted to send me to prison for 3 years, double my time at 85% because of the strike. I am on probation and parole as well. Tarek was able to negotiate a plea where I was released on probation and I'm now doing a rehab program instead of jail or prison. Tarek truly knows what he is doing. Thank You!

He is one off the worst lawyers I've ever seen. Your ratings misled my decision to hire him as my lawyer; me and my friends hired him after reading his ratings on your website (9.6) at the time. He did me no good and he was unresponsive and unhelpful throughout my case. After the trial was over and I was released (not by his help) he refused to give me back the amount of money agreed on if I were to be released without his effort., and I was because my case was dropped by the other party. He refused to file several documents during the case even though I asked him to (the documents and findings were crucial to my case). I have the case number, all the evidence of my claims, and all paperwork if needed. A copy of eevrything has been submitted to the BAR.

Mr. Shawky was amazing in my time in need. He really helped me understand my options and walk me through the whole case. There was not a time during the case where I felt lost. He works really hard for you and I could not have picked a better attorney

Mr. Shawky was an unbelievable attorney. He always kept me informed and up to date as to what was going on with my case and was always updating me as to all my possible options and what the consequences would be with each option. Did a great job for me and the end result of my case.

Smart, kind, and a winner. Most attorneys I have come across are either smart jerks who will get you what you want but you will hate dealing with them or they are nice but not very good at getting you what you want. Tarek is a rare breed. After explaining my story to him I felt instantly understood and respected, but more importantly I felt confidant that he would get me my desired result.

Tarek is an incredibly principled and skilled lawyer. He earned a reputation with other progressive lawyers in LA by being part of the Irvine 11 case and defending the free speech rights of students, which is how we knew to reach out to him after I was arrested at a protest in Pasadena. At first we had all foolishly saddled ourselves with something of an ambulance chaser lawyer, but Tarek helped us assemble a team of more professional lawyers to work on our case, almost all pro bono. Because Tarek believed in the principles of my case, he took it on for a vastly reduced fee and donated a lot of free labor to our case. He led our team of six lawyers as we fought the case for more than a year, and eventually got us the best deal that all of us were going to get together. I wish that I could have gone to trial with Tarek, but that's not always the simplest thing to do in bigger group cases.
In short, Tarek is not a lawyer who is out there just to make money off of you. He is humble, motivated by a strong commitment to justice and will always stick by his principles.

I hired Tarek when my brother was charged. Tarek was able to drop the charges after working very hard. He is extremely professional and has great communication skills. He knows the law very well and explains options very clearly. I highly recommend him to anyone. He did a great job and was recommended to me by a friend. I had also heard that he has been excellent with all his other clients!
