Practice areas

Ahmed Motiwala is an attorney and the founder of M&A Law Firm, P.C. What began with Ahmed working with a few loyal clients out of his dining room, has since flourished into a premiere law firm with attorneys practicing Real Estate Law, Civil Litigation, Estate Planning, Business Law and Immigration Law.

Ahmed earned his Bachelor’s Degree from DeVry University. Although Ahmed was by no means the most naturally “gifted” student in any class, he was always the hardest working and had the most “hustle.” Ahmed attended a four year university while also maintaining a full time job. Ahmed then went on to receive his Juris Doctorate from The John Marshall Law School.

Upon entering private practice, Ahmed brought the same dedication, work ethic and “hustle” to representing his clients that had always fueled his drive. Ahmed’s philosophy is simple: find a client with a cause you can believe in, and then give it everything you got to help that client achieve his or her goals.

Prior to starting M&A Law Firm, Ahmed worked for a large law firm that mainly represented National Lending Institutions. There, each client was a faceless institution that represented a way to meet the firm’s billable hour requirement. After his stint in large law firm life, it was apparent that this wasn’t a cause that Ahmed could get behind. After some soul searching, Ahmed decided to take a leap of faith and M&A Law Firm was born.

Today, Ahmed is proud to be on a first name basis with hundreds of clients. Since its inception M&A Law Firm has helped hundreds of clients structure businesses and achieve success. Whether the client is a small “mom and pop” shop opening up its first business or a large group of investors structuring a multi-million dollar business, Ahmed always puts the best interest of his clients first.

Diligent and Aggressive
When I think of an attorney, two things come to mind. I want them to be diligent and aggressive when dealing with my situation. I've used MA Law on a few transactions, when comparing them to the many other attorneys I've dealt with in the past this team has the two quality down to a science. MA Law is a professional company led by Ahmed. They are passionate about their job and do what is possibly needed to get the job done. They are very strategic in planning and will keep you in the loop as matters progress. They are really in tune with you're needs as a client. I suggest using MA Law for you next Real Estate transaction or situation.

Excellent Attorney!!
Ahmed assisted me with an eviction and was able to quickly process the case. I was very satisfied with his staff's constant communication and attention to detail. Ahmed also advised me thoroughly on how the process would unfold, and what I should expect along the way. I would definitely use him again.

Professional Business Consulting
Mr. Motiwala consulted with my executive team on a new agreement we were reviewing. His help and expertise ensured that we were protected and were able to move on with the deal in confidence. He always acted professionally and he used technologies that made sharing information amongst my team very simple. Thank you sir!

Bad Home purchase
We bought a home using this lawyer our agent recommended. He did say he was a lawyer he hand worked with much. I understand he had family issues couldnt replu, kicked out the wrong tenants for the building we bought. And after find several issue with the home after moving in, never reponded to the calls after scheduling them with him. Wouldnt recommend we ended uo eating all those costs. Go with the more expensive. Lawyer
