Great lawyer
Mr. Ahmad is very knowledgeable and honest. He truly cares for his clients and is empathetic for the situation. My experience is that he is straightforward and professional and will follow through with his proposed strategy or change for the better. Over the past 2 years, I have heard a lot of bad stories about other lawyers and I am glad that I had Mr. Ahmad. The judge in my case was also impressed with his presentations and professionalism which really helped my case. I will recommend Mr. Ahmad to everyone.
