This gentleman is very professional. I could not have made it through the legal process without his expertise. He also has been very responsive and helped me through this hard time.

I was charged with 4 misdeameanors and was scared to death because I am a college graduate working in corporate America. I thought my life and everything that I have worked for was going to be taken from me.
I had no prior arrests/convictions.
Murad was completely honest with me from the beginning and told me that based on the facts, I had nothing to worry about. I would describe myself as a needy client (requesting updates weekly/bi-weekly) and due to Murad's book of business he didn't always get back to me in a timely fashion. When Murad did get back to me, he always reassured me that he would secure the best possible outcome and that was always comforting over the almost 6 months process.
At conclusion of the case, just as Murad told me (6 months prior) I received a reasonable resolution to my case.
I feel indebted to Murad. If anyone I know ever has an incident with the law I will surely recommend that they consult with Murad.
Quick summary of Murad
- Straight talker
- Knowledgable about the law
- Caring and considerate
- Hard to get a hold of (sometimes)

I was being charged with three Felonies in Washington County. I was risked with having a stained record for the rest of my life, limiting me with low income jobs and housing. With Murad guiding me thru the whole process, I was calm and confident of the outcome. After the 3 day trial, I was found not guilty on all three charges. My family and I can not thank Murad enough. I would recommend him to anyone.
