The Absolute Best
Mr. Ali has been my attorney for over 5 years now. I call him with anything I need and I don't think about it again. I know it's taken care of. He is the only attorney you will ever need to retain again. If you have a chance at all with your case, he is the man to get it done for you. If you don't have a chance, he will be upfront and honest about it. I have never met a man who is more focused on his business and providing his clients with the best experience possible. He is professional, kind, aggressive, puts his clients absolutely first as though you are the only case he has, and his staff is exactly the same way. He is the only attorney who has called me randomly just to check on me, and who treats me like family. When I hired his office, I didn't get just a lawyer; I got a friend and a brother who takes care of what I need.

Best attorney in Madison County
I’ve had many troubles and cases for the past 15 years. I never hired him until my last one and I regret not hiring him many years ago. He doesn’t sugar coat anything. He’s completely honest and truly puts his efforts into getting you the best deal possible (if you have to plea out). I am beyond satisfied with his services and would highly recommend him. He doesn’t just go with the flow. He actually negotiates with the prosecutor until you are satisfied with the outcome. I’ve never had an attorney fight for me and my freedom like he did. All the other attorneys don’t care about the outcome. They get their money and take what’s offered and expect you to suck it up and deal with it. At the end of the day, you’re just another client to them. Zaki isn’t like that at all. He even followed up with me after court. Just shows what type of person he is and how much he does care about his clients. Hands down the BEST ATTORNEY I’VE EVER INTERACTED WITH!!!!

AMAZING
Not only was his staff and him extremely professional but they made the court experience as pleasant as possible. He's extremely knowledgeable on laws, is very personable and has a knack for getting things to go his way in court. I'm so blessed that he was on my side for this court battle I had to go through. Not that I ever want to go through it again but I would most definitely recommend him to anyone that is battling a court case.

Treated me like his own
After being involved in an incident I had not been present for I was being relentlessly contacted by police. Zaki contacted the officer and squared everything away. Truly gave me peace of mind.

Treats you like family
From the minute I had my consultation, Zaki told us he would treat my 14-year-old son like his own, and that is exactly what he did. My son was attacked at his middle school and defended himself by pushing the child off. He was attacked again minutes later and this time swung twice to stop the attack. The school pushed for the police to get involved and to press charges of battery against my son. We had our trial today and Zaki was amazing. He took such good care of us that I don't feel words can adequately describe the situation. We were assisted and walked through each and every step and never felt alone. He fought as if it were his family up there on trial. Needless to say, we won! The judge, through Zaki's amazing questioning, saw that this was a ridiculous case and found in our favor. My son did not even have to testify and that, in and of itself, was extremely important, as my son is autistic. We would highly recommend Zaki for any criminal defense needs and can't thank Zaki enough!

Zaki Ali deserves his own TV show. He's the God of Law.
Got arrested in indiana from out of state. Ended up with a DUI, felony evading, and 3 other dumb charges. Flew home with 2 misdemeanors and only probation. He saved my life. You give him the money, he will wave a wand and make it all go away. Better than anyone else. Go to Zaki, and relax, he's got you covered.

Zaki Ali should be your first and only choice if you need an attorney!!!
From the first time I contacted Mr. Ali, all the way through the entire process, he and his staff were very professional. I felt a great peace of mind knowing that I had the right attorney representing me. His fees were extremely reasonable and his work was outstanding. I was facing three felonies and one misdemeanor, all of which he had dismissed. If you want the best representation possible, do not hesitate to hire Mr. Ali. He is the best!!!

Zaki got my 2 felonies and one misdemeanor dismissed in Grant County there is no better lawyer.
Zaki and his team are well worth the money. They worked tirelessly to get my charges dismissed. Zaki doesn't sit quietly and let the system abuse it's power. He fights and argues, he is not scared to be aggressive with prosecutors and judges. He fights for his clients. Just search Zaki Ali and you will see there are none better. If you want a pushover hire someone else. If you want a BOSS hire Zaki. Thank you so much Zaki, you saved my life and my family. You are a rock star and I will always have nothing but love for you and your team of experts!

Great lawyer
I got into trouble a while back down in Indianapolis. I got his name from someone else up here that had used him previously and had nothing but great things to say about him. I contacted him and hired him. I had 2 misdemeanors and I couldn't go back down there due to my new job I couldn't miss. He was great to work with and represented me so I didn't have to go back down. He got the charges suspended and all I needed to do was pay restitution and not get in trouble for awhile. I highly recommend him.

Five Star, Professional Representation
After finding myself in a bad situation with my first DUI charge, I was referred to call Mr. Ali by a friend in Madison County. He returned my initial web inquiry almost immediately, on a Sunday evening. He guided me through the process with honest professionalism, and was very comforting to both me and my family. He got me the best outcome I could hope for, and got my drivers license back much faster than I expected. Through all of this I have learned two important things: never drink and drive, and always have Zaki Ali stored in my cell phone!

Case dissmissed
Zaki Ali was the best attorney I could of been referred to ever. He got me off 6 counts of felony theft in Hamilton County. I truly believe if he wouldn't of believed in my innocence and stuck behind me 100% the out come would of been different!

Best Outcome
My case was one of the worst nightmares I have ever found myself in and Zaki Ali went above and beyond to make sure I was treated fairly. Mr. Ali went through the probable cause affidavit and evidence with me and listened to everything I had to say. He treated me with respect and understanding as did his assistants. They always kept me up to date with what was going on with my case and always got back to me promptly, unlike other offices. I am very thankful for the guidance and support for which was provided through Zaki Ali's office during this rough time in my life.

Jury Trial WON
Mr. Ali believed in me when no one else did. He went above and beyond his duties as a lawyer. I was unjustly accused on 3 separate charges by the Indiana State Police. Mr. Ali took the case to a jury, and I was found innocent on all 3 counts. Mr. Ali honesty, dedication, knowledge and work ethic is far superior to any attorney I have ever met.
