Hey, Everyone. Nabiel Ahmed. Has been my lawyer for the past year. He's very knowledgeable laws, rule and what he believes is best for his Client. In my case I had about four Felonies they want to try me with. I told Nabiel to do whatever he had to do in order for me not to get charged as a felony. I took my case to trial, instead of trying their plea deal they wanted me to. At the end of my Trial i got the best deal i have every heard of. I was able to get off of all the charges, by agreeing not to get invloved with any illegal activities for one year. I believe Nabiel is a very good lawyer.

My first time having a problem with the law and I could not be more blessed to have Mr. Nabiel on my side. He helped me understand my options, was there with me every step of the way, always answer my calls, explain legal terminologies and he updated me on my case when ever I had court date. During this difficult time I knew I was in the best of hands. He personally went to every one of my court dates and really put his heart into it. He really cares and it showed. I had a complicated case and really thought there was no hope. In the end after about a dozen court dates my case was settled to the best result possible. I would not hesitate to refer family and friends to him should the occasion arise. I am extremely pleased and grateful for all of his hard work and professionalism.

My daughter had gotten herself into a pretty difficult situation after making a series of poor decisions regarding her personal conduct and the company she kept. Long story short, she wound up on the wrong end of a felony charge.
Mr Ahmed took her case, meeting with us briefly prior to her first hearing. He was obviously on a tight schedule, but did ask us to call him later. I remember thinking that we would be playing phone tag for awhile, but was pleasantly surpised when he answered my call (after hours) and spent quite a bit of time explaining what we would be facing and what he needed from us to prepare.
I sent in what was requested, then called him once again to confirm that he would need nothing further. I placed the call in the early evening on a Friday, assuming that I would have to leave a message. He picked up the phone on the first ring, greeting me by name.
At my daughter's court appearance, he spoke with the prosecuting attorney then informed us that the charges would be dropped. This outcome meant a great deal to my daughter, as she had really turned her life around, was in school and doing well. Having a clean record will be of tremendous value going forward and we owe that to the fine work Nabiel provided.
As the father of an adult daughter, Nabiel had no obligation to keep me in the loop on things, but he understood how important this was to both of us and was kind enough to humor me.
I would highly recommend this gentleman and would not hesitate to recommend his services to my friends and family.

I was referred to Nabiel by a close friend of mines. I found myself in a bit of my rough situation and was stressed out by the entire ordeal. From the get go, Nabiel made me confident in his abilities and laid out a plan as to how he would go about achieving the results I was looking for. He was not like other Lawyers I consulted with in the sense that they sounded like tape recorders. Mr. Ahmed really did seem to me like he believed in my innocence which is why I gave him the opportunity to represent me.
In court, Mr. Ahmed was not up tight about anything. He was very energetic, friendly and made me feel comfortable about everything that was going on. I specifically recall an instance while in court where he noticed I was nervous. Nabiel was quick to calm me down before he proceeded with anything. Those are things you can only hope your lawyer would do.
If you're looking for a Trustworthy Criminal Defense Attorney, you've found the right one in Nabiel Ahmed, I HIGHLY recommend him!

Nabiel Ahmed Turned 2 Felonies Charges Into A Misdemeanor In Just One Court. We Were In And Out Of Court In Less Than An Hour.He Is Very Efficient And Goes Right To The Point.
What I Liked The Most Was The Price ...Very Reasonable And Affordable , There Where No Hidden Charges Or Fees ...Definitely Recommend him. If You Don't Have Time To Waste I Recommend Mr. Ahmed To Get The Job Done Fast And Right The First Time.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Nabiel Ahmed. He did and outstanding job the first time I hired him. I currently re-hired Nabiel to represent a loved one, and so far things are going accordingly. He seems to work quickly and diligently on very issue or concern I may have or had regarding the case I hired him for.

ill keep it simple, i had a legal problem that defiantly required a lawyer and i called around, of all the attorneys that i contacted the only one that could give me a solid answer was Nabiel.
he worked with me and answered my questions.
one aspect of working with Nabiel is that he s very efficient both with his work and clients.
in my particular case i had a co-defendant and i could see the difference between the two attorneys.
the other attorney dragged his feet and just ran up my co-defendants bill while Nabiel got things done.

Not a very good lawyer. He lost a slam dunk case of mine because he was over confident and under prepared. Hard to get response via email or phone. No trial prep for me. Bad questions to plaintiffs/complainants during cross examination. Poor advice to me. I tried to give him the benefit of the doubt, but his continued inaction and flakey style was unacceptable. If you are in a bind, find another lawyer. Mr. Ahmed is a weak attorney or is way over-committed and not able to give paying clients the time and effort to win. He was in the hall when we were called to begin court, and could not even or did not even get the original police report. It was disgraceful.

I contacted Mr. Ahmed after I had gotten yet another DUI while driving home late. I had both been represented by other attorneys in the previous DUI's, but also had contacted an attorney for the one that Mr. Ahmed ended up taking care of for me. The attorney was very pessimistic and over-exaggerating and I wasn't very hopeful on the outcome of what would happen to me. Although I knew I was more than likely going to have to do some time, What I asked of Mr. Ahmed initially over the phone, he made sure to carry out for me all the way to the end. He was always very honest with me and remained opptimistic. His attitude and knowledge helped my peace of mind, and I could feel comfortable, despite everything, that he was handling the case for me. I am very pleased with the outcome and would reccomend.

At a time like this in my life I didn't knw where to turn. I was referred to Nabiel and it was great! I was lost and had a lot of questions. He was always available and patient with me. He told me I could call him at anytime if I had questions or concerns about my case and he always picked up the phone if he was available. He was very understanding about my situation and made me feel very confident about my case. He got this case over quick & easy! I would definitely recommend him! -

Mr. Nabiel was able to resolve my issue the most effective and easy manner. I had a few specific requests and he was able to make those happen. He is a good person.

As a parent, when your child gets into trouble it is the worst feeling in the world, especially if that trouble is with the law. Iâ€™m not a lawyer, I donâ€™t have much experience with the legal system, but I wanted to make sure that my child got good advice and guidance. Nabiel was able to relate to my young adult, give him sound counsel and take practical steps to mitigate the damages. I canâ€™t thank him enough for allowing me some peace of mind during a trying time. Knowing that he was there for us and had the knowledge and expertise to do everything that could be done was a huge help. From my experience, Nabiel is an attorney who really seems to care about his clients, not just about grabbing a fee for as little work as possible.

My boyfriend and I were referred to Nabiel by an immigration attorney to handle a matter before we could proceed with our petition, and ever since, we do not regret one bit of having hired him because he is an outstanding lawyer. As soon as we met for the first time he was comprehensive about the case and that was self-assuring to me. On our second appointment, he surprisingly lowered the fee and that was amazing because it shows he is not only a great lawyer, but a great human as well. We live in a different city, and I have a hectic schedule, so most of the communication was over the phone or e-mail and he was very responsive and not to mention, timely.
He is still working on my boyfriendâ€™s case but so far Nabiel has proven to be responsible at getting business done so I donâ€™t have a doubt heâ€™ll get everything set right for us soon because he seems very committed to our case. He also works hand in hand with our immigration lawyer and that is a weight lifted off my shoulders cause I donâ€™t have to go back and forth with information, he even does that for me. I highly recommend Nabiel, and like I told him at our last appointment, I wouldnâ€™t want to seem him again anytime soon, but IF we were ever again in any legal trouble, heâ€™ll be the one we turn to.

I HIRED MR AHMED ON A REFERRAL AND BECAUSE I LIVE IN REDDING, CA. MOST OF OUR BUSINESS WAS HANDLED BY TELEPHONE WHICH HAD MADE IT RATHER DIFFICULT FOR ME TO PUT MY TRUST IN SOMEONE THAT I HAD NEVER SEEN. BUT I DID AND I AM HAPPY TO SAY I AM VERY PLEASED WITH HOW HE HANDLED MY CASE. THE RESULTS HAD BEEN JUST AS HE PREDICTED! SO IF I OR ANYONE I KNOW NEEDS AN ATTORNEY IN THE ALAMEDA AREA, I WOULD STRONGLY RECOMMEND HIM.

As I have never written a review I am not sure how to proceed so I guess I will just tell it like it was. In July 2009, I was unexpectedly served with divorce papers after fifteen years of marriage and in the middle of relocating to Colorado. Since the action was filed in California, I was forced to find an attorney in that area. After several conversation with attorneys it Oakland, Pleasanton, Dublin and San Leandro I was fortunate to speak to Mr. Nabiel Ahmed. Mr. Ahmed was supportive of my concerns, was quick to show me support and always had a recommendation at hand. Mr. Ahmed would take my call any time of the day or night and was always willing to take the time to explain every situation and possible outcome. This case took almost two years to resolve and Mr. Ahmed never waivered in his commitment to me, or to my getting a fair outcome. Some very complex issues protracted this case, as my spouse or her attorney had no interest in making a settlement, and would muddy the waters every way possible. Although we made several offers to settle in a fair manner for everyone, those offers were met with rejection and it looked like I would lose everything. Mr. Ahmed once again exceeded my expectations by negotiating a final settlement. Now after more then 20 months of legal work it appears to be over and I feel I did receive a fair out come as it was more then I originally wanted. I was very grateful for the outcome and the settlement Mr. Ahmed was able to negotiate but once again, he went above and beyond when he waived the balance of his legal fees. As I stated, I feel Mr. Ahmed is not only skilled in his profession but he is also a person of honor and integrity who sticks with his client even when things are not going as anticipated. I am sure given the circumstances any other attorney I spoke with would have dropped this case within the first year Mr. Ahmed stayed and fought for me and I will always remember that quality in him.

Mr. Ahmed was very helpful and informative and looked at my case right away and reassured me that he could handle with no problem. This was a restraining order case. He kept in touch with me and filed papers on a timely manner. We went into court on the very first appearance and won the case. I highly recommend Nabiel Ahmed for your professional needs. He presented himself very professionally and was ready when my case came up. Outstanding job and, if ever I need any lawyer in the future, he is the MAN.

I am extremely happy with Nabiel Ahmed's services. Having him as my attorney made the legal process much less arduous. Throughout my case, he was extremely reliable, thorough and responsive to all of my needs and requests. Often times, I felt as though I were his only client. This is extraordinary given the demands and challenges an attorney faces in this line of work. He ensured an outcome for me that I was happy with and made me feel very comfortable along the way. I felt at ease throughout the entire process. It really was a pleasure to do business with him.

I was involved in a very nasty criminal case. A friend of mine recommended me to consult Nabiel Ahmed. As per my request he represented me without me being physically present in the court through out my case.He went out of his way to help me with this case, I personally felt that he didn't only take my case because he wanted to get a client but he actually believed that it was a wrongful case aganist me. For me it was very important for my lawyer to believe that i wasn't lieing . He is not only a good lawyer but a good person also.

I am very happy with the work Nabiel Ahmed has done for my family. My daughter was in a difficult situation and through his efforts a potential legal prosecution was diverted. He was extremely patient answering all our myriad questions and was always available by phone to keep us updated. He impresses me as smart, talented and kind. But the reason I would recommend Nabiel Ahmed to any of my friends is his commitment to work hard, doing his best for each client with the energy of a young ambitious man who is serious about building his career.

When I met Nabiel, I was truly distraught. Other attorneys had tried to force me into accepting something I didn't want simply because it would be easier for them. Nabiel listened to me and I felt like he really understood that I was innocent. He ended up getting me a deal everyone else insisted was impossible. I highly recommend him.

Nabiel Ahmed did an excellent job for me. He always responded to my questions and kept me informed of the ongoing progress of my case. He explained what needed to be done and what approach he was going to take. I feel that he really takes an interest and cares about his work. He is enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I was very happy with his work and felt that his fee was more than fair. I would highly recommend him.

I found Nabiel online when i was searching for a lawyer to help me fight my case. I was picked up on traffic warrents and in the mist of getting arrested the police found drugs in my purse. Mr. Ahmed took my case and i found him to be an extremly competent attorney. He was able to satisfactorly resolve my case in a timely fashion. He was able to reduce my charges from intent to sell and possesion to intoxication. And was also able to get my traffic case dismissed. I was very pleased with my out come of my case and would utilize and recommend him in the future.

Nabiel is a very knowledgeable and assertive attorney, who is not afraid to fight for his clients. I met Nabiel about a year ago in the DA's office, downtown Oakland. I was seeking information about a legal matter, but wasn't completely familiar with procedures, and Nabiel stepped up and assisted me with my request. He explained the process, told me what to expect, and the estimated turn-around time. I was very pleased that he was willing to assist me and dedicate his time to make sure I was on the right track. I inquired about his professional services and background, and found that Nabiel has a stable track record as a young aggressive attorney who's willing to fight for his clients.
One of the first questions he asked me was what did I want to do and what did I expect from him. I've always had an idea of the kind of lawyer I'd want to represent me in court, and I described that person to Nabiel, and he told me he couldn't guarantee an outcome, but he assured me that he'd fight tooth and nail to the end, and that's what he did. He was my voice, and he was heard. I know that all cases and circumstances are different, but the drive, fight, dedication and determination does not change for Nabiel. He is truly a warrior for his clients.

I have used Nabiel in the past year to represent me through both the eviction process and for traffic violations. Last week, he helped me get two traffic violations dismissed in court and I was extremely happy because I cannot afford to have any more points on my record. 6 months ago, I got two speeding tickets in one week, which would have put me at 3 points, driving my insurance premiums sky high. Thanks to Nabiel's diligent extensions and court appearances, both cases were dismissed due to lack of evidence. I highly suggest anyone who gets traffic violations to call Nabiel to help save your driving record. Saving the added expense of paying a high premium on your insurance for the next few years makes it worth trying.
Less than a year ago, I also had an issue with an insolvent tennant who needed to get evicted from my Sacramento property. Nabiel saved me a lot of stress and headache by taking care of the process for me. Not only did he successfully free up my property so i can rent it out to someone else, Nabiel also took the extra step to get a judgement against the tennant for the overdue rent, cleaning expenses and lawyer's fees.
I am a very busy person and having someone like Nabiel on your side is a great asset. I would recomend him to anyone and surely utilize his services for all my legal needs.

I was unfairly convicted of a DUI in Truckee, California. My attorney who lost my trial informed me that I had no chance of winning an appeal. I contacted and interviewed several "appeal" attorneys. The only person who I had the confidence to handle my appeal was Mr. Ahmed. Mr. Ahmed was both positive as well as realistic. I am grateful he was able to overturn my conviction. As a professional it was a pleasure to work with someone who was a good listener and optimist.
