Saad was extremely knowledgeable of the many facets of the law that encompassed the multiple hearings that we had to appear to over a 2 and a half year period. Saad was very professional in explaining what to expect and what to prepare for prior to these multiple hearings. I gained so much trust in Saad's expertise that I learned not to expect any worse scenario than what Saad had explained to me prior to each court hearing. Saad was always punctual to every hearing and treated me always as a client but as well as a peer that he was comfortable explaining the process and posssible outcomes in all scenarios that we encountered. I consider Saad very centered on humility and he is very empathetic for his clients, I would consider Saad as a professional equaintance and friend.

Saad represented me for a DUI I received. He was very professional and kept me calm and relaxed throughout this stressful period in my life.
He was able to negotiate my charge to a lesser charge this keeping me out of jail.
I couldn't be more grateful

Saad.....extremely professional, very genuine, smart, unbelievably knowledgeable, reliable, positive, punctual, diligent, determined, understanding, non judgmental, a stand up guy, and overall an amazing individual and attorney are just a few ways I'd describe him.
After my arrest in Bellevue and while facing serious DWI/DUI criminal charges I was more then a little worried, angry, disappointed, and ashamed of myself to name a few. Right away I interviewed and consulted with numerous well known attorneys, but rather then feeling better and hopeful about the whole thing, I was left feeling more scared and stressed. THANKFULLY a friend of mine recommended I contact Saad. I had no idea who he was but at this point, after everything said and done, I can't even describe how happy and glad I am that I did!
After a positive and reassuring phone conversation, to start, and even with his incredibly busy schedule of saving lives one crime at a time, Saad agreed to meet me when and where it was convenient for me. He then further explained the seriousness of the matter, walked me through the whole process of what was to come and be expected and (what I am still beyond grateful for) he put me at ease. He assured me, not just then but all along the way as well, that I would be fine and that everything would be okay and it really was.
Fast forward a few months Saad did more then I expected or could have ever even hoped for. I'm still not sure how, but luckily Saad got my DOL case completely dismissed without any added license suspensions or ignition interlock device requirements. On the criminal case side of it all, with his vast knowledge of the courts, the law, and years of criminal defense experience Saad worked very hard and not only got my charge significantly reduced but also deferred. As if I wasn't already ecstatic and more then satisfied with that, he also made sure I didn't end up with any jail time or community service. Though I didn't end up going that route in the end, Saad was also very helpful and there every step of the way in arranging a payment plan with the court in order to make it less stressful and easier for me to pay all the court fines and fees.
The situation I found myself in was horrible to put it in a nice way. I sincerely feel for anyone in the same boat. Thankfully though, Saad was there for me and had my back the whole time. I feel so incredibly lucky and blessed to have had the opportunity to work with Saad and have such an amazing attorney represent me. Money well spent for sure! I can honestly say, while I have no intention of making getting in trouble a habit, as long as Saad is practicing law I'm not worried about a thing. I truly and undoubtably trust him with my life. That said, I most definitely would and do recommend Saad and the SQ attorneys team to anyone in need of great criminal defense.

Saad is an excellent attorney with great knowledge and wisdom. He made a very complex and difficult situation, easy and stress-free. He knows what he is doing and loves doing it. Would highly recommend Saad Qadri's services to anyone and everyone looking for representation. He is keen in advice and very easy to approach. He runs a great practice through SQ Attorneys in Seattle and has quickly gained prestige through his wonderful reputation as a well respected attorney in Seattle.

I was going through a whole lot of stress and challenges in my life from medical and family issues to job - related stress.....went out 1 evening and made the mistake of consuming alcohol and getting behind the wheel. Got arrested and chargesd with a DUI, which added to my stress and anxiety level. With all that ensued, Saad not only led me swifly through the legal maze but offered solid support that put my mind at ease. he took excellent care of my concerns with what I had gone through and what I was to go through and negotiated a reduced sentance. Saad also offered the right encouragement in the most professional way that showed me the seriousness of my actions, with no judgement, while giving me the support to get through this and move forward with my life. I felt I was treated like a person in need of help and not a case number. Saad made the ordeal as painless as possible and got an incredibly reduced sentance. Thank you Saad!!! I gladly and whole-heartedly give my highest recommendation to this lawyer. He kept me from feeling lost in the legal maze and from feeling like a cog in the wheel...and worked hard to get me the incredibly reduced sentance that I got.
5 stars for this Attorney!!!!

Saad was great. He went out of this way to make sure the case was resolved to the best of my benefit. He appeared in court approximately 10 times and was prepared and professional each time. He continued to work on the case for over one year to get me the best resolution.

Saad did an excelent job handling my case in a professional, prompt and efficient manner. He was there every step of the legal process. When I had questions he was thorough in his explaination in a manner I could understand. Best of all, no matter how busy he is he always interacts with you as if you're his only priority.He makes you feel comfortable with all the high stress that accompanies many situations.

Saad worked with me in getting a 11 year old protection order removed.
This took some time but he never once gave up like the attorney I hired before him who just took my money made one phone call and said sorry.
Saad dug in and didn't rush the process which may have jeopardized getting it removed. This took over a year but this was due to difficulty with the other party not on Saad's part.
I was very happy with the outcome and with Saad as a lawyer.

Saad represented me regarding a charge of driving without a valid operater's licence. In just a few minutes he was able to reduce the charge from a felony to a misdemeanor and further reduce the fine by more than half.
Hire this guy. He honestly cares and is extremely friendly.

Saad is by far the best attorney I have ever dealt with. He is consistently on time, very ethical, and informed. If you have a question he will answer it, if he doesnt know the answer he will find it. He is a phenomenal individual and an outstanding man. I would trust him wth my life and future now and always. The firm he is a part of is great as well, they are courtious and very nice, as well as motivated. Saad is an asset to the firm and to the world. I wish there were more people in the world with his charisma, and dedication to his clients, as well as his firm.
