This guy is worthless. During the four week period that I mistakenly used him as my attorney he NEVER returned any phone calls. He scheduled meetings, which were cancelled upon my arrival for another client. He provided no useful advice, which is not surprising, as his knowledge of legal matters is very limited. I am not exaggerating when I say that I actually knew the law concerning my case better than he did. Find another lawyer...You'll be glad you did.

Unprofessional, his word is worth nothing. I payed this man $250 to send me a copy of a document. He took a whole week to send me the document. After numerous calls and emails i finally received a copy of paperwork i had NOT requested. When I called to ask to send me the information I needed he very rudely and argumentatively said that he had gone out of his way to send my documents and acted as though he had done me a FAVOR when in fact I payed him more than his hourly honorary to simply mail a paper.

I think Mr. Nassif is an amazing attorney! As parents, we were devastated having our daughter with legal issues. He is extremely understanding and empathetic to not only our daughter's needs, but our needs too. He worked with us to come up with solutions; even calling us on the weekend! He is easy to be around and does not make you feel less of a person as attorneys in our past have done. I would never hesitate to hire Nader Nassif for my attorney again! Do it! I promise you won't be disappointed!

I strongly recommend hiring Nader Nassif for any criminal defense case. Nader is an aggressive and experienced litigator that is second to none in the community in both experience and capability. Nader knows every facet of criminal law and he truly cares about his clients. I know that his reputation among the criminal law community is excellent. He is as honest as the day is long and works zealously to obtain optimal results for his clients. You simply will not find a better criminal defense attorney in Metro Detroit.

Nader is one of the most impressive criminal attorneys that I know. His track record and commitment to his clients is incredible, and beyond reproach. Nader's professionalism, reputation with prosecutors/co-counsel and the Courts ensure that every client achieves the best possible outcome.
