I pride my self in being extremely passionate about the law. My dedication to my clients and their causes shows in my detail-oriented work. I treat my clients cases as if they were my own. Clients typically seek lawyers at a vulnerable and unfortunate period of their lives. My office understands that and handles every case with compassion, professionalism and a great sense of urgency. 


      1.Personal injury


In a difficult time following a traffic accident, competent legal representation is cruicial in communicating with the insurance companies, negotiating a favorable settlement and, if necessary, going to trial.


       2. Immigration


Being an immigrant form Morocco, I experienced first hand the process of becoming a lawful resident and eventually a naturalized citizen. I undersatnd what it takes to be successful in this complex and constantly changing area of the law. My expertise is deportation and inadmissibility defense.


       3. Business law


When parties enter into a business agreement or partnership, they almost never forsee that it will end up in dispute. Many business agreements end up in disagreement or misunderstanding. 

When unexpected disputes arise, they must be resolved efficiently and expiditiously to minimize the negative impact on revenue and customers.

I understand the need for efficient and discreet legal representation.


       4. International business law


I can be retained to negotiate multinational business contracts and advise foreign companies on establishing business presence in the United States. I speak fluent Arabic, French, Spanish and English.

Mr. Mehdi is a great lawyer. He helped me navigate through the most difficult time of my life. He is not only an attorney but a great mentor as well. He is very reasonable with his fees. He has handled my divorce case in the best way possible. He is an excellent communicator and will let you know all the facts and possible outcomes of your case. He is a person of high morals and ethics. I highly recommend him to anyone. You will be glad if he takes your case! I am very grateful for everything he has done for me. My best regards to brother Mehdi and his team!

More than just a Lawyer
Mr Cherkaoui is truly a stand up professional. After finding myself in a legal quandary, I turned to him for legal counsel. I was dealt with compassion, understanding and patience. Mr Cherkaoui reassured me of my legal standing every step of the way and ensured I maintained my moral compass. I did not need a lawyer that just knew the law. I needed someone that knew how to apply the law and help me navigate the legal process.

I not only recommend attorney Mehdi Cherkaoui, but I guarantee once you have used his service you too will look no further. He responds in an extreme timely matter, he is a very knowledgeable, trustworthy person. There is no other attorney that will work as hard for you. I used Cherkaoui for Immigration, he is a wonderful attorney I could not have been happier and I will never go anywhere else.

Best lawyer in Houston!
I hired Mr. Mehdi Cherkaoui to assist me with a breach of contract. A former client decided he didn't want to pay for my services after I significantly lowered his tax bill. It was a nightmare till Mehdi explained my rights and the litigation process. He is honest, professional, knowledgeable and affordable. He updated me promptly on each step of the way till my the case was resolved to my favor. I recommend him to all my friends and whomever asks me about a competent lawyer.

Personal Injury case
Mehdi represented my family in a personal injury case. Right from our first meeting we found that Mehdi showed a lot of empathy and genuine care for our loss. He was extremely friendly, someone we could count on anytime of day or night, someone who shared similar thought process and would fight for us the way we want him to. Highly recommended!

Very satisfied client
My husband and I hired Mehdi to get us through the I-130 and I-601a process. As our immigration attorney Mehdi was always prompt to respond to any questions we had. We filed the I-130 and were called for an interview because of lack of information. He was happy to accompany us to the interview and represented my husband and I in a very professional manner. Both the I-130 and the I-601a were approved and my husband has his interview scheduled at the Consulate in just a few short weeks. Throughout the process we have been very happy with our legal representation and would hire Mehdi all over again if we needed to.

Excellent in all aspects
I retained Mr. Cherkaoui's counsel in a somewhat rushed swap from another attorney who became non responsive. Mr. Cherkaoui immediately made himself available and kept me updated at every step in the process, which was really appreciated. While working with him, he made sure I understood the worst case scenario while fighting for my best interests. He got the job done in a professional manner despite attempted bullying/intimidation from the defendant's counsel during negotiations. I could not ask for better results and would not hesitate to hire and/or recommend Mr. Cherkaoui's services in the future.

A Masterly lawyer
Mehdi is an incredible lawyer and a true pleasure to work with. Mehdi represented me in 2 legal matters the first one was tenant and landlord the second one was about a lien. All I had to say about the 2 cases he was the easiest and most thorough legal professional I've used. I recommend him. He is 100% reliable and he puts his effort into my cases and he won them both. I made a great decision on hiring him.

Top notch attorney
I retained Mehdi for a lawsuit against a financial firm. Mehdi was outstanding in having the case resolved in an expeditious manner, including a fair settlement without going to trial. Mehdi was fair, attentive to details and aggressive while representing me. He constantly challenged me which is what a good attorney does to prepare a client. A very satisfied client.

Mr. Mehdi Cherkaoui is the best lawyer we ever worked with
we worked with him on a case and during that time something else came up as an emergency he answered his phone and it was after 5 pm he was very helpful , guided us on what to do on the spot and it felt so good feeling being backed up with legal advise when we really needed it. I would recommend him hundred and ten percent and i would definitely work with him again.

I would like to recommend Mr Cherkaoul because since the first appointment I felted confident with him. I was impressed how prepared and organized was during the trial. The way that he spoke to the juror, the judge and the opposite lawyers was impressive. I'm so thankful because we won the case and for sure I will refer him as a very competitive lawyer.

I will definitely recommend Mr Cherkaoui to anyone who has a legal matter. He knows his job very well and he worked very hard on my case, which resulted in a variable verdict from the jury.

I had the pleasure to hire Mehdi 1 year ago and guess what : We won a breach of contract case with a 12 jury trial in February 2015. Honest, passionate, convincing... the best lawyer ever... thank you Mehdi. Ed
