Sami has been handling my DUI traffic case. He has been most professional and attentive during this personally difficult process. I feel like he is actually working for me and I'm not just a faceless file in a cabinet. He explains every part of the process, provides realistic expectations and prepares me properly for each step of the matter. Sami's outstanding professionalism and attention to his clients is why I recommend him to anyone in need of a quality traffic attorney.

I was referred to Sami by a friend a little over a month ago, and he is the best thing that has happened to me. I was arrested for my first ever offense for a drug paraphernalia charge (Class A Misdemeanor) and thought it was the end of my life! From the beginning, Sami made me feel calm about my situation. At my consultation it felt as if I was talking to a friend or someone I knew, rather than someone drilling me of questions. He listened very well and paid attention to all the right details. He new I was very nervous and he reassured me that everything would be ok and do let him "do his thing"! The morning we met a court, he talked me through what was going to happen and what he was hoping to do for me. Not only did he manage get me 3 different options as to what I could pick for my final charge, he explained to me in detail what all 3 meant and which he recommends I take. We were done with only one court visit and my charge was dropped from a Class A to a Class C and from a 750.00 fine to a 250.00 fine. I couldn't have been any happier!

I met Sami while I was in law school and he brought me on as a law clerk to help on a case he was handling. Sami is not only an experienced attorney but he actually takes time with his clients and cares about their cases. I consider him a mentor of mine and now I'm a licensed attorney myself, taking what I learned from him and applying it to my own clients. If you need a defense attorney, I would highly recommend Sami!
