Saved my Life!!!!!!!!!
I was charged with Attempted Murder and looking at going to prison for 31 years to Life. As you can imagine my fear of being wrongful accused of such a serious crime to add to it other attorneys did not believe I was innocent and they were telling me to plea guilty. Shady Yassin was the only attorney that told me he will fight for me and he did. He took my case to trial and produced a not guilty. He saved my life and allowed to continued my normal life with my family.
