Fantastic Attorney
I hired Elias Muawad to take over a long drawn out criminal matter. He was extremely knowledgeable about my issues affecting me and guided me through the process in a very professional way. He was always available by phone at anytime and was able to answer my many questions personally in a way I could fully understand. My case was quickly resolved to my satisfaction due to his ability to present my case to the court in a way they could understand. I will highly recommend Elias to all my friends and family for any legal needs.

Elias is Amazing and a Blessing
Elias did an amazing job we hired him for our son. Elias knew exactly what and how to move forward and saved my son. He is a very busy man but he gets the job done so sometimes, if he cannot return a call…don’t be angry….you cannot expect him to be on every phone call or text…even I., myself had to come to terms with this at times when I was scared. When we are on the other end ; we sometimes forget & when we are dealing with fear or anxiety with all the legal situations , we tend to in these times want the attorney to be at reach at all times..when we want them to be…and people need to understand that they too have families & other clients & a lot of court cases just because our phones are at hands reach, does not mean he has to answer….in this day and age does not mean that they have to as attorneys be there on text or on call 24/7. So please give the guy a break & try to relax if he cannot get back to you right away he is still doing his job. And I cannot stress enough how wonderful Elias is; our outcome was amazing & Elias really came through for our family. And he has become very close to our hearts. We are all so Thankful for Elias. He has more than did an outstanding job. He worked a miracle. Elias knows the system very well! Thank you Elias for everything! God bless you.

Best criminal defense attorney !!!
At first, I was very skeptical to hire Elias , truth to be told . No other reason than , as a foreigner /immigrant , I didn’t know much about the law and what to expect on a criminal case , therefore it was hard for me to make a decision . However , I can tell ANYONE looking for a great knowledgeable and very experienced attorney that Elias is the one to be hired! I’m extremely glad and content today to find out that was the best decision I took on my personal matter . I’m so happy that the hearsay’s about Elias and all the reviews were 100% true ! Elias is very attentive , realistic, patient with his client , listening , always available and helpful till the end of your case , unlike others attorney . Plus, you can be sure he’s always on top of the matter . His approach is really genuine . Unlike other attorney he won’t tell you what you want to hear but nothing else but the truth , to make sure you can be prepared to any outcome . And that’s the reason I can say today , I feel blessed that I had followed his instructions and advices until I was done with my case ; because he indeed proved me how much he fought for me and how much efforts he had to make to get me the best outcome I could expect . It was very worth to be patient and let him do what he knows best ! I’d definitely recommend to anybody who has a criminal case going on to hire Elias. You won’t be disappointed .

Above and Beyond Expectations
I cannot say enough about the excellent legal service I received. I have had several criminal defense attorneys, none of which matches the quality of Elias Muawad. I had a complicated, out of state case that he helped the court navigate. He was extremely knowledgeable, helped me work through my options and gave me great advice on how to move forward. He was dedicated to my case and fought tirelessly to get me the best results. If you need someone who will listen and go the extra mile to help you, look no further.
