Outstanding, confident & knowledge
I have worked with Saani, off and on, for a few years. He has always been very thorough and has done an excellent job of representing me in custody and financial issues. Saani has been equally effective in the courtroom in front of the judge, or negotiating with other lawyers on the side. He provides sound advice and collaborates on a strategy. I would highly recommend Saani.

Hired attorney Sanni Mohammed to take on my criminal/DUI case and his work is outstanding. Not only did he get the case closed in a timely manner but the results were in my favor. The service he provides along the way with clear communication is superb.

Battery Case Dismissed
Saani Mohammed always prepared and very confident from the first time we met. Saani Mohammed has a very good reputation, on court date, plantiff did not show up, and Saani was able to get it dismissed after the prosecutor requested another date in seconds. Will recommend him just based on him being very confident, Prepared, Kind, Honest, good reputation, and a great lawyer. My go to Lawyer moving forward.
