I’ve been a full-time practicing lawyer in Austin and Central Texas since 2000. I founded the Akhtar Law Firm in order to focus on doing what I love best: representing individuals and small and medium-sized businesses in Texas.


I was born in Wisconsin, and grew up in small towns in Kentucky and Kansas. I graduated from the University of Miami with a Bachelor of Science, cum laude (high honors), in Mathematics in 1995. I then graduated from the University of Michigan Law School (consistently ranked one of the Top 10 law schools in the country) in 1999. I’ve done legal internships in both Houston and Dallas, but ultimately settled in our state capital, the beautiful city of Austin.


I have a lovely wife and three sons, and enjoy playing competitive tennis (always looking for new practice partners), watching college basketball (lifelong Kansas Jayhawks fan), writing, participating in interfaith activities (delegate of Interfaith Action of Central Texas), and participating as a parent in Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts activities.

Hard-working, Professional and Intelligent
Ali is the most professional and hard-working attorney I've ever met. He answered every question (out of the many) I had always promptly and professionally. He frequently followed up with me on the status of my case and he was always honest- letting me know all the possible outcomes specific to my case. I'm very happy with his representation- he is very intelligent and experienced and I would strongly recommend Ali!

I found the best attorney I could have hoped for!
When I unexpectedly found myself in desperate need of immediate legal help, I turned to Mr. Akhtar. He agreed to meet with me the following morning, and arrived fully prepared. He listened attentively and took meticulous notes regarding the many confusing aspects of my case. He asked specific questions and explained possible strategies. By the end of the day, he had submitted a response to the opposing counsel. He consulted with me at every step, and let me know my rights, all without giving me any false expectations of possible outcomes. His very calm and professional demeanor put me at ease, and I very quickly realized that I had made the best choice possible in hiring Mr. Akhtar. He was upfront in explaining his fees, and was extremely fair. He really is the best, in my opinion, and I was more than satisfied with the eventual resolution.

Ali is a Superhero, Always Coming to the Rescue
Life can be challenging, especially in times of need. After a car accident, I was left with hundreds of questions and the sense of 'not being sure what to do'. Ali is a godsend who helped take charge on those questions. Not only is he extremely professional, he's accustomed to the fine details. 10/10, I'd recommend Ali to even my family should they ever need his expertise.

An Angel in human skin
I'm a new immigrant and victim of photo troll on my website. I have no reference and this whole world of complex legislation is new for me. I was surprised by such elevated fines and relentless acculturation. I found some IP lawyers on portal justanswer who refer me to Here I come across this Savior (Masiha). In the first email, he not only reviewed my case but asked to send more documents. After going through all document and his desk research in the next call he was telling me what was the origin of the photo, who snaped it, what was actual cost and how to proceed with the case. First time I was able to understand my case in his simple and grass-root level. By going through my document this intelligent person already knows my hardship and refuse to accept any financial reward and fee. My faith in humanity restored. Ali doesn't know me. I had no reference and he worked for me, go through long documents and hours of online and desk work for nothing? My heart has only one answer to this; Hez an Agel in Human skin.

Excellent Service
I hired Ali Akhtar to represent my son in a recent case for eviction. My son was being sued by his estranged wife for his half of mortgage payments and was trying to evict him and his father from their marital home. She lied on the petition, falsely claiming they were tenants in the home. My son had tried to get his trial postponed, because the lawyer he had originally hired was called out of town. He was unable to get a postponement, which gave him only 2 days before his trial to find a lawyer to help him. Mr. Akhtar accepted his case on VERY short notice, and made the time to find documents that my son's estranged wife had filed that helped expose some of the lies she had told in her petition and in the courtroom. He was very fast on his feet in debunking her lies to the judge. I was very glad to have our case in Mr. Akhtar's very capable hands. My son and his father were allowed to stay in the house, and did not have to pay any of the money his estranged wife was suing them for.

Small Claims Court Experience
I was referred to Ali by the Lawyer Referral Service. As the ratings above indicate, I was impressed with Ali and my dealings with him were quite satisfactory. He reviewed my case and advised me of its chances of success in court. Though I chose to represent myself, Ali provided procedural particulars as to what I would and would not be allowed to say or do in court. I found this information on target and invaluable. I highly recommend Ali and should the occasion arise, I will hire him again with no reservations.

3 Years of Madness
Ali was the second Lawyer that I hired in regards to the vehicle accident I was in back in November of 2007. The first lawyer was very unresponsive and actually ended up abandoning all his clients, including myself, when he moved to another state in a total rush. After hiring Ali, he threw himself into my lawsuit and got the ball rolling again. Ali answered all my questions and concerns even if it wasn't asked. When we went to court in August of 2010, he was very knowledgeable in every thing thrown our way. There were many times I was ready to throw my hands up and just go about my way. But Ali pulled me through each time. He was not about to let me give up. The outcome of my lawsuit ws a total win. I can now move on and live my life without wondering "What next".
