When we hired Huma I had no hope regarding my case. I was facing very serious charges with mandatory prison time. Huma was a life saver for me. Not only did I avoid prison time, but I also avoided a felony conviction on my record. I would recommend Huma to anyone looking for a positive, hard-working lawyer that will get best results possible. Great lawyer, better person!

Huma Rashid represented my uncle in court. My uncle is a registered professional professional nurse that was indicted under two class 2 felonies for theft for allegedly stealing hours from the hospital he was working in at the time. I met Huma one day when I went to court to support my uncle. She is a very professional, compassionate and knowledgeable individual. She was always postitive and reassuring during the entire process. Huma would always explain to us the exact details of how the case was going and what to expect next. After various months of court, Huma put together a mitigation packet with key documents that they had from discovery and were submitted to the state. The State's attorney agreed to drop both felony charges to one misdemeanor with probation. As a result, my uncle was cleared of any wrongdoing and his nursing license remained active without any suspensions. My family and I are so grateful to Huma for her expertise, knowledge, professionalism, and excellence.

I am so blessed to have had Huma Rashid represent me in court. I am a healthcare professional that was indicted under two class 2 felonies for theft for allegedly stealing hours from the hospital that I worked at. Since I met Huma on day one, she's been very professional, patient, and knowledgeable. My fears of going to prison and losing my license would've made me lose my mind had it not been for Huma's way to calm me down and keep me positive. Huma's assertiveness to look at every piece of discovery and, together with the defense team, plan out a defense strategy, kept me strong and feeling positive. Huma was on time for every court date, and always informed me with great detail as to what was going on. She never once hurried me when asking her questions. Huma has a way with words. Both through speaking and writing, it is obvious that she was born to do this. Through the State's discovery and the discovery that we subpoenaed from the hospital, many months and court dates went by. My level of anxiety decreased with every court date, as Huma reassured me we had a good defense and were in good shape. Ultimately, the amazing mitigation packet that she put together with key documents we had from discovery, were submitted to the state. The State's attorney agreed to drop both felony charges to one misdemeanor with probation!! Also, this awesome result allowed my license to remain active, and avoid suspension!! My family and I are so grateful to Huma for her expertise, knowledge, professionalism, and assertiveness to get the job done! Thank you Huma!! Because of your hard work and dedication to my case, I'm able to be alongside my family and continue working in my field!! God bless you.

Huma Rashid is an extraordinary attorney, thoughtful, insightful persistent, passionate, and empathetic. I've been privileged to review her work, and based on almost twenty years of practice, I can say that if I needed criminal defense, I'd call her. Given how many lawyers I've worked with over the years, that's no light recommendation. She's as as good as they come and really cares about her clients. And she has the skills and determination to give then the representation they deserve.
