Reckless Driving Case Loudoun County
Farheena was able to knock down my rather high reckless driving speeding case into a regular speeding charge. She was poised and confident throughout my experiences with her over the phone and in the court house. I would certainly recommend her for anyone seeking help involving these matters in Loudoun County or elsewhere in the surrounding area.

2nd degree Murder/ Malicious wounding charge
All I have to say is they did an excellent job getting my sons charges reduced. Very professional and knowledgeable about the law. I give them a 10 rating would definitely refer them to my family and friends. Btw my son came out with 3 years but was originally facing 20 years need I say more.

Malicious Wounding, Attempted Robbery - Not Guilty
I was charged with 2 felonies, malicious wounding and attempted robbery. All because I made the wrong person mad at me. If convicted, I was facing up to 30 years in prison. Because the police never contact me to hear my side of the story, I woke up one morning to 2 felony warrants. The prosecutor offered a horrible plea deal, which would have resulted in me going to prison and pleading guilty to 2 charges. If it wasn't for Farheena's confidence and professionalism, I would have taken the deal. We went to trial, and everything was working against us. The Judge denied every single one of our motions and agreed with each of the prosecution's objections. The prosecutor, during his opening, made statements that NONE of the 4 witnesses (including my accuser) ever substantiated. The prosecutor also informed our witness that he was an 'unindicted coconspirator', despite the fact (based on statements made by my accuser) that he was not involved at all. Despite everything the prosecutor pulled, Farheena remained professional. She had a game plan, stuck to it, and kept me informed along the way. During the opening, the prosecutor made statements that we had never heard before, statements that had never been made by my accuser or his witness. Farheena calmly and clearly rebutted each of the prosecution's accusations, and outlined to the jury what they were going to see during the trial. As mentioned, throughout the trial, the prosecutor objected to and the judge ruled against virtually all of our motions. Farheena knew the Judge's track record and was not surprised or rattled when our motions were denied. She always had a plan. She was also well aware of the prosecutor's demeanor going into trial and could anticipate what he would and would not do. She had an incredible cross of both my accuser and his witness. She rattled the prosecution's witness during cross to the point the judge needed to excuse the jury, and threatened to put the witness in handcuffs if she didn't behave. For the jury to see this witness absolutely implode under Farheena's questioning, I believe was a key turning point in the trial. During closing, the prosecutor returned to his 'practices', making statements that had not been substantiated and tying together evidence in a light that favored my accuser. He urged the jury to find me guilty, and made a compelling argument for them to do so. Farheena's closing was clear and concise. She remembered minute details from the day before, reiterating both mine and my accuser's statements to ensure the jury understood how each piece of physical evidence, external factors, and testimony in the case fit together. She connected the dots from her opening, through the trial, and tied everything together. She painted a clear picture of what really happened that night. I firmly believe that it was her closing that lead to the jury's ultimate decision of not guilty on both charges. I would recommend Farheena to everyone. She is the reason I have my life back. I wholeheartedly believe, if it wasn't for her, I would be rotting in a cell and my life would be over. Because this trial was held with Covid protocols in place, anyone who wanted to watch the trial needed to do so from a separate room. My accuser, his friends, and 4-5 interns from the prosecutor's office were in that room at all times. My gf and friends told me after trial that during openings+testimony my accuser and the interns were laughing, joking, and were confident the prosecution would win. After Farheena's closing arguments, everyone in the room was silent.

The best lawyer in NCR!
Farheena is the most competent and compassionate lawyer in our area. She is knowledgeable of the law as well as the system and excellent at interpersonal communication. She is culturally competent and prepared to work in cross cultural scenarios. When we engaged her for our son's case, I was very nervous but she was always clear with the next steps, which helped me calm down in the middle of uncertainty. She never over promised but she delivered what we expected from her. I strongly recommend her anyone who needs legal support!

excellent representation
I came ba ck to Ms. Siddiqui after experimenting with an attorney from another firm. By continuously negotiating with the prosecution over a period of weeks she was able to eventually get the charge reduced and it will finally be dismissed. I highly recommend her as an active and shrewd defender who will not sit back while matters run their normal course, and instead exerts herself to obtain the most favorable outcome. She was also quire responsive to me, the client, over a period of months

Great service and communication
After talking to Ms. Siddiqui she clearly explains everything without rushing you and answers all questions. She’s very capable and makes you feel at ease. She did a great job for me and got my case dismissed when I didn’t think it was possible.

Wonderful Lawyer
I highly recommend Farheena.  I've never had to hire a lawyer and appreciated how easy she made this ordeal.  She is very communicative and updated me often on my case.  Not only that, she was friendly, professional and reassuring throughout the process.  I am grateful to have had her on my case.

Great criminal attorney
I had never been accused of a crime before and I did not know what to do or where to turn. As many of you I had reached out to a few different attorneys in the area to get their opinion about my situation and to see if they could help. Ms. Siddiqui was easy to talk to, very understanding with the specific aspects of the law regarding my case, and was determined to do what it takes to get me the best deal. Ms. Siddiqui successfully negotiated and reduced charge that was satisfactory to both parties. I am very pleased with the outcome of my case and will definitely recommend Farheena Siddiqui to anyone looking for a great criminal attorney!

Excellent Lawyer!
Farheena was absolutely superb when I needed to go to court to fight a spurious ticket. Her knowledge & calm demeanor helped me sail through a typically frustrating experience. The quick & positive results she achieved were much appreciated. I left court without being frustrated or intimidated by the process—thanks to her—& both the situation & my good name were 100% cleared immediately.

Ms. Farheena Siddiqui
Ms. Siddiqui represented me in a reckless driving case, which is a misdemeanor in Virginia. Ms. Siddiqui was very receptive to my concerns and was always prompt and available to respond to my queries. Importantly, Ms. Siddiqui appreciated the stress the case had on myself. She took the time to explain to me the strengths of my position and made sure I was aware of all the potential outcomes. In court she demonstrated confidence and experience in dealing with the prosecutors and the officers. The reckless driving charge was dismissed and the case was resolved to my satisfaction. Ms. Siddiqui is clearly experienced in Virginia Traffic Law, very receptive, professional, calm and reassuring. I recommend her highly.
