Excellent
First thing he did was he told me to relax and to trust that he can take care of everything. Took care of my job, my hours missed, my hospital Bill's and called everytime he received new news.

Excellent Guidance
I am more than satisfied with the professionalism, expert guidance and stress free handling with my personal injury claim. Salim made it a priority to make sure I understood how we would pursue my claim and kept me well informed along the way with very satisfactory results . Although I hope I never have to navigate this process again, its comforting to know that I have such a competent direction to look in if I do.

DUI
My lawyer was there for me, and made me understand and feel good about me going forward with my day to day, while he takes control of my case and not to worry, that this is what he did. Peace of mind on my end! My case dismissed.

Mr. Khayoumi represented me after I was involved in a car accident. His main focus was my physical well being and making sure I was protected. I was very pleased with the services provided by Mr. Khayoumi. I have and will continue to recommend him to friends and family.

Best personal injury lawyer
Having someone like Mr Salim khayomi represent you on an injury case while you have to do daily duty towards taking care of your family and besides going for doctors visits and work is big plus to have him on your side taking care of legal issues

DWI
After getting my DWI in June, I was at a loss on what I should do ( as I had never been in trouble before). After meeting with Mr. Khayoumi, I knew I was in good hands. He got both the revocation of my license and DWI dismissed. He is truly among the best. If anyone finds themselves in a predicament, I would highly recommend him. Thank you Salim for everything that you have done for me!!

Salim the trial attorney machine.
Salim has been very attentative to my needs and has gone the extra mile to make sure that every resource was exhausted in order to win my case. His abilities as a trial attorney are simply amazing and his presence in the courtroom is second to none.

I definitely recommend Mr. Khayoumi
Mr. Khayoumi is a very experienced and knowledgeable lawyer. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who finds themselves in a DWI mess here in NM. He got all my charges dismissed on a DWI 2nd. Also a very humble and friendly man. Thank you again Salim!
Posted by anonymous | November 6, 2013
Very happy client!
Salim was able to get all my DWI charges dismissed. I almost pleaded no contest, but after talking to Salim I felt confident that we had a chance to get the charges dismissed. I am very pleased with the results and would recommend Salim to anyone who is facing a DWI charge.

Strange DUI case
Salim helped me out with my recent DUI case. He managed to get me out of a very sticky situation. Highly recommended and a really nice guy too.

The best attorney
Salim, is a great attorney, he helped me with my Dwi case, and got all charges dismissed. He helped me out so much and I would recommend him to people I know who need a attorney who will not stop fighting.. Thank you Salim!
Posted by Joe | October 29, 2012
Highly Recommend!!
Salim Khayoumi is very knowledgeable and helped me out tremendously! I had just got my CDL license, then in an unfortunate event I was facing the loss of my CDL. Mr. Khayoumi was able to have my CDL rescinded from the DMV and have the charges dismissed in metro court. I would absolutely suggest him to anyone in need of an excellent lawyer as i was!
