The Best of the Best
Aneeq Ahmad is an exceptional attorney and I recommend his services for any legal needs without any reservations. He has been my attorney for two years and I cannot thank him enough for compassion, enthusiasm, knowledge and ability to resolve situations, where other attorneys have made things significantly worse or did nothing at all. He helped me regarding multiple felony counts where I was lost and frustrated by complexity of legal system. The results went above and beyond all my expectations for a deferred judgement, all felonies dropped and only misdemeanors will appear after a year with just counseling and treatment. He is very reliable, easy to reach and will go an extra mile to make sure that my needs are met. His ability to organize and strategize every move are amazing. He is pleasant, friendly, down the earth and has always been able to put a positive spin even in the most difficult situations. After going through 4-5 different attorneys, to whom I was simply another client with checking account, I was relieved to find Aneeq Ahmad. Without any doubt, he is most competent and powerful attorney I have ever dealt with.

Why You Need Aneeq Ahmad
Please allow me a moment to paint a picture that accurately describes the talent and efficiency of attorney, Ahmad, as he deserves it. I had the misfortune of going through trial during the global pandemic we all know too well, however, I had the greater fortune of retaining the representation of this fantastic attorney. He works with you wherever it is that you are in your life, without judgement and with care, to know your story and goals, so you can best achieve them. He displays empathy, artistry and an eloquence that is unmatched, both with you personally and to the jury of your peers which is of utmost importance! Throughout social distancing and delayed court appearances, at a time in life that was most challenging for us all, he did not lose momentum and kept in contact at all times to keep me up to date on all events. While maintaining compassion, he does not compromise his legal expertise whatsoever! He leaves no stone unturned and any legislation or changes to the law unexamined. He puts in the tireless work it takes to make sure you are successful at reaching your goals. When he says you not only need representation, you need results, he means that and stands by that. I would gladly recommend him to any of my family or friends who are facing legal troubles, because he will carry the burden with you. I was facing three felonies and three misdemeanor charges! They would have had negative lifelong implications, such as where I could live, my choices of career and work would be incredibly limited and to pursue an education that I'd want would also have its restrictions. Attorney Ahmad fought so I could have normalcy and a chance at a functional adult life. He achieved this by really engaging the jury and presenting my case in a format that could be easily understood by everyone. He meets everyone at their level and provides clarity in such a manner that it is as if the jury was there to witness the events themselves. Attorney Ahmad brings the podium closer to the jury, so he makes it clear that he's speaking to them as people, not just a number. Not only does he state very to the matter of fact points, that cannot be disputed, he is able to include brilliant analogies that help the jury understand your personal journey and where you're at, so they can empathize with you and relate events to their own lives. He finds the smallest, most intricate details of your case that most would overlook and compiles them together to prove your innocence and bolsters your defense from start to finish. In addition, he is an expert of finding inconsistencies from the plaintiff that create gaps in their story and ultimately discredits them and all their reasoning to take their case against you. Due to this artistry and his professional practice of law, I was found not guilty of all six charges! With these verdicts, it will have a positive impact on my entire life! No one can afford a guilty verdict in their lives! I know without a doubt that if you decide to team up with, Attorney Ahmad, he won't only be the attorney you absolutely need, but he'll be the most upright and upfront attorney you'll want to represent you in your corner!

Excellent lawyer that far exceeded expectations. Highly recommended!
I was facing 5 charges of DV. Initially I hired an attorney but was very dissatisfied. After doing some online research, I reached out to Atty. Aneeq Ahmad that was the best decision of my life. Aneeq was very responsive throughout the case and showed great empathy and compassion. I was very impressed with the way he litigated my case, analyzing it from every angle and developing an effective defense strategy. State wasn't willing to dismiss the DV charges initially, but Aneeq showed great courtroom intelligence during all my hearings and was persistent throughout. As a result, all my DV charges got dismissed and one of them being reduced to a non-DV offense. State recommended a 12-month probation period, but Aneeq did a great job during the sentencing hearing and the judge only gave me a small fine with no probation. I would highly recommend Aneeq Ahmad for anyone who is looking for a highly skilled criminal attorney in Wisconsin or Illinois.

Hold-Over Agreement/Case Dismissal
Mr. Ahmad procured a deal with the city's attorney to have two cases dismissed, provided I complete a 6 month hold-over agreement! Mr. Ahmad and his staff were diligently working behind the scenes, and a resolution was achieved within a year. I recommend Ahmad & Associates to anyone facing legal hardships. One can trust in their expertise!

Attorney Ahmad saved my future
I was charged with a serious child sex offense and Attorney Ahmad negotiated a misdemeanor with no jail, and the judge even said she would have given me expunction if I wasn’t too old. I can’t thank him enough for keeping me out of jail and preserving me freedom and future. Thank you.

Review on Aneeq Ahmad.
I found out about Aneeq through a friend of mine, he told me what a good job he did helping him out through his case. He helped me go through the whole process of court as it was my first time and I was facing 2 felonies, I got them both expunged with only 1 year probation. I never had to worry that much about court dates and if stuff was taken care of, he made sure to help as much as possible. I’m glad I went with Aneeq.

Amazing lawyer! Got my case dismissed.
Aneeq represented me on my OWI 2nd offense and from the get go, told me he would win my case and get it all taken care of. I had a warrant and Aneeq handled that with ease. He told me we had challenges and on our second court appearance he called me after and informed me that the State was dismissing the case based on the challenges we were planning on filing. Amazing! I’ve been so stressed and Aneeq took care of it all so smoothly.

OWI
Aneeq is an excellent attorney, He got my OWI charges dismissed, when the police trade to railroad me into pleeing out to a OWI charge I didn't commit. He made me feel confident that I would be allright and he fought for me like every attorney should do. If you ever have an OWI charge, he is the attorney for you

Did everything and more...
Mr. Ahmad had his handful with our case, and he went above and beyond to make sure we had the best outcome. Because of circumstances, he advised us to plead guilty and have the judge issue the sentencing instead of having a jury trial. This was the best advice for us, and on sentencing day, he reviewed everything he needed to in front of the judge to get us the outcome we needed. He's a calm man, which helps to calm his clients down as well, but don't let that fool you. He's smart and knows exactly what he's doing and does it for you. We are thankful we found him.

Serious Felony Charges - Amazing Outcome!
My home was unexpectedly raided and phone confiscated and containing unknown damning evidence against me. I was now facing very serious crimes and at least 10 years in prison. My world was flipped upside down. I spoke with many lawyers and practices and felt hopeless and was simply waiting to be charged and put away. Everything changed after my first consult with Aneeq and his team at Ahmad and Associates. He was honest about the seriousness of the charges I was facing but also had an immediate and aggressive approach to defending me. Aneeq never promised anything he couldn't deliver and set very realistic expectations. The results were more than I ever could have dreamed of. Aneeq and his team were able to work with the prosecution and get this case dismissed before charges were ever put against me. I cannot express how life changing their immediate and aggressive approach was in making sure I never received charges. Even if I would have been charged and then we had won the case, due to the nature of the crime my life would have been changed forever. Since Aneeq was aggressive and worked on things immediately, I was able to keep this out of the public. Walking in to my first meeting at Ahmad and Associates, I was certain the next 10 years of my life would be in prison. However, I was not only able to stay out of prison, but I was able to keep this matter private and away from my friends, family, and employer. This was a life changing result and I will be thankful for the rest of my life that I chose Aneeq, and Ahmad and Associates to represent me in this extremely delicate matter.

Excellent personalized representation
Aneeq Ahmad is a superb attorney. He takes the time to analyze the details of his cases in order to find the best resolution for his clients. He is passionate and truly cares about making sure the best outcome is reached. I think he differentiates himself from other attorneys by ensuring that you are not treated like just another case file, he takes the time to communicate effectively and build a trusting relationship.

Didn’t get a single day in jail for felon in possession of a fire arm
I would highly recommend Aneeq and Mindy I caught a weapon charge back in 2016 and I been out on bail for almost 4 years. They work very hard on getting the best outcome for you and always straight forward. I had a felony gun charge and the DA wanted me to go to prison but thanks to Aneeq and Mindy I only got 14 months of probation and I never went to jail at all during this whole time.
