I believe that everyone should have quality legal representation regardless of what led them to walk into my office. Every client deserves my full attention and to have questions answered, especially in times of turmoil, which is often the case after someone has been charged with a crime or involved in a serious accident. No two attorneys are alike and it is important that those in need of an attorney are aware of that. I strive to ensure that those who come to me know they are not just "hiring" me, but they are also getting someone who will stand in their corner just like a friend or family member would.

I'm passionate about criminal law and personal injury litigation and it's what drives me to ensure that no stone is left unturned and no option is left out when defending an individual accused of a crime, whether it be a minor speeding violation or a Class X violent felony. I also believe that everyone injuried in an accident should have someone who will advocate for them vigorously and with the utmost care and attention.

Knowing that everyone has an individual story and that everyone and every case are never the same, I make sure that they get a defense tailored to who they are and their specific case, which ensures an outcome that will allow them to continue their pursuits in life.

Great DUI Lawyer
I can't believe police will arrest for a DUI even if they don't do the tests. But Kal really told me that an arrest always happens in those situations and it boils down do the laywer you get and how the can spin things. He did it! Kal just said "let me handle it" in our first meeting and he got the win! He's a no BS guy and won Thank you do much

Best Accident Lawyer!
Kal helped me out with my accident after someone rammed into me and left. I was so scared because I didn't know what to do the police really didn't seem to care. I thought I'd have to cover my own bills and thought I was going to get fired because I couldn't go back to work right away. Kal handled all of it with ease and told me not to worry. He really knows his stuff inside and out and it all happened! Thank you so much Kal. Not just from me, but from my whole family!!

Khalid Issa, is a just, fair, honest, competent, and an Attorney full of integrity. He assisted my son with a gun charge case. And after hearing all the details and reviewing all the facts he was able to have the judge render a verdict of case dismissed. It wasn’t about the money to him but that justice was rightly served. So if you or one of your love ones find yourself in a criminal bind Mr. Khalid Issa is the Attorney that you’re going to want to call. He’s the Attorney that cares!!!!!!!!!!!

Grateful
I waited till the last minute and needed a lawyer to help me handle my case. Issa Law was the only firm willing to help me on such a short notice, and took care of everything I needed. I couldn’t be more grateful for the service I was given.

Lifesaver!
I was hit by a driver who wasn’t paying attention. His insurance company said I was responsible for the accident because I turned on a yellow. Kal took on the case and got the company pay a great settlement to cover my bills. I was afraid that I’d have to pay those bills myself but Kal did awesome work!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND
Kal Issa is an exceptional attorney. I have seen Kal obtain incredible, out-of-the-box results time and time again. I contacted Kal only based on the reviews I’ve seen, I was not disappointed. Kal explained everything I could accomplish and expect. Of course everyone wants their case to be dismissed but I was more than happy with the outcome and would recommend him no doubt. He is very professional and genuinely cares about his clients, thanks Kal!

No one better
Got a DUI and thought my life was over. Called Kal and he assured me my life would go on. Even the judge told me "you're lawyer got u a good deal" Kal was very thorough and followed up with me to see how I was doing. Do yourself a favor and call Kal for all your legal needs

The Best lawyer you can hire won’t regret
I will recommend for anyone to use him as their lawyer. He is very down to earth and straight to the point. He won’t give you the run around or sugar coat anything. He will put his all into his client if your are straight forward with him. He is very reasonable on his prices and will also work with you .

Will go above and beyond for you
A detective showed up at my house Telling me that I shouldn’t waste my money on a lawyer. He was so wrong because I hired Kal. Kal went above and beyond to help me with my stupid situation (Telephone harassment) Kal will do everything he can to get you the best outcome.He has the patience of a saint because I’m an idiot. Even though he had a deal with my stupidity He still went out of his way to make sure I have the best I had the best outcome for my case

Great Attorney
Kal by far one of the best lawyers I have worked with. I was in a big bind and bad legal matters, was referred to him and he was a blessing in disguise. He not only consulted the best way to handle the problem...he listened and understood and worked diligently with me. He was able to get me the best deal that I could get with the court. He always checked with me to make sure I had all court dates and during this pandemic he was to have me go thru Zoom for court appearance. And through his great work, my case is terminated. Kal ...I am forever greatful for your help, professionalism and utmost help with my case.

Exceptional Performance
Mr. Issa handled a personal injury case on my behalf that lead to Arbitration. I was truly impressed with his presentation of the facts to the panel of arbitrators. As a direct result of his argument, the case was decided in my favor. Excellent professionalism from start to finish!

Very Helpful and Thorough
I was injured in an automobile accident, after a distracted driver went through a red light. Khaled Issa was my attorney. He did a great job working to get me a fair, yet realistic settlement. He personally kept in contact with me every step of the way. He was honest and direct, and made sure I understood the reasons behind every suggestion. I highly recommend Khaled if you are ever in need of an attorney.

Great and Honest Advice!
I consulted with Kal because I was apprehensive about what to expect at an upcoming court appearance for a ticket. I came to him with many questions and Kal was informative and quick to respond to my call. Kal put my worries at ease and I was able to go to court with confidence on what to expect!
