When I was falsely accused of rape by a civilian female last year, I thought my life, let alone my career was over. I called Haytham Faraj and he explained everything that was going on and what would happen next. His cross-examination of my accuser at the Article 32 hearing exposed her dishonesty to the degree that my investigating officer recommended dismissing the charges. What happened next was even more devastating. The command decided to go forward with a General Courts Martial against all recommendations after I had already been told the charges were being dismissed.
Haytham was there for me anytime I called, answering my questions no matter how trivial and reassuring me that he had never lost a rape case and I wouldn’t be his first. I was charged with violations of Article 120, Aggravated Sexual Assault, Wrongful Sexual Act, Indecent Conduct and Article 133, Conduct Unbecoming an Officer and Gentleman. I was facing 37 years in prison and having to register as a sex offender if convicted of even one of the lesser included offenses. I thought there was no way my career would survive this even though I was innocent of the charges against me and my accuser was exposed as a liar.
Throughout the trial Haytham was indefatigable in his cross-examination of the Prosecution’s witnesses. By the end of the first day I knew we had won the case. When the jury came back with a unanimous not guilty verdict I almost broke down. Haytham was there for me every step of the way. A few weeks later, I’m continuing with my career without the stigma of so much as even a single dissenting vote on one of the charges.
Haytham was worth double what I paid to get my life back. Not only did he achieve the best possible result in my case, he truly cares about his clients. I don’t care whether you’re guilty or innocent of what you’re accused of; there is no one else I’d entrust with my future or recommend to anyone.

Mr. Faraj is an amazing lawyer but better yet, a genuine person. Mr. Faraj honorably served our country both as a leader on the enlisted and officer side in the Marine Corps. He was the top defense lawyer in the largest Marine base during his tenure as a Marine. He will represent you with these same unique values that led him to succeed in the most accomplished military branch in history.
As his client, Mr. Faraj always kept me well informed of my case. It never felt like business to me. It felt more like he was taking good care of me. He spent many hours with me over the phone, prior to any commitments. He is highly respected among the prosecutor community, and he will try your case aggressively. I have referred him to a couple of friends that needed a lawyer, and won their cases. Mr. Faraj is the best lawyer you will find around. He saved my military career and prevented so much inconvenience for the rest of my life. You will not be disappointed. Thank you Mr. Faraj.

I endorse this lawyer/warrior. Haytham is one of America's elite trial lawyers, with a well-earned national reputation for winning "impossible" plaintiff's civil and criminal defense cases. Lawyers from all over the country study under Haytham to learn how to try both criminal and civil cases. His devotion to his clients and the results he gets are unparalleled in his field.
