Your search for an attorney ends here.
If you're looking for an attorney and don't know if the review's are legit or if the page of the attorney you are looking at has you wondering "are they good?" then look no more. I had a complicated case where I had spoke to other counsel and it felt as if I was speaking to someone who just wanted to get paid and do the minimum. I got to a point where I had set in my mind that the worst was going to come true. When I called their office, I got huge sense of relief and appreciated the bluntness of Mr. Manshoory. When others looked at me as if I was lying, Mr. Manshoory and his team did not, they understood my situation and trusted me. With the Manshoory Law Group, there were "check up" calls from his team to see how I was doing (mental checks to keep you from worrying), to obtain updates, etc. At court, I had one counsel from the office and Mr. Manshoory himself. Let me tell you that not only did they demand respect when walking into a room, they were professional and "aggressive" when it came to negotiations, settlements, etc. The saying "You get what you paid for" is what continuously popped in my mind. You will get a no BS review of your case, will be well represented, reassured and will be honestly be treated with respect. I have recommended the office to others and they have nothing bad to say. Stop looking around, pay for the representation that you want and need and have the team make things happen for you.

Brilliant Criminal Defense Lawyer
Manshoory Law Firm is by far the best legal help you can get against your DUI charge. From top notch service, legal advise, to getting your charges dropped & getting the absolute best outcome possible!! We won my case! I was being charged for Second time DUI, they dropped it to a second wet reckless driving. Literally did the IMPOSSIBLE for me. (I had High BAC) No jail time, no ankle bracelet, my job was on the line and I got to keep my job as well as getting another chance to get my life in order. I cannot thank them enough! Truly a miracle! Thank God for you guys. I spent quite a lot of time researching online to hire the best. After spending a couple of days of researching and making calls, the team over at Manshoory law firm truly made a connection with me, they truly showed they care and were realistic as far as what could be done. I really appreciated their honesty and when they walked me through the process, I knew I was making the right decision. They have a whole team that is always in contact and guiding you throughout the process. Julie was great, she always made sure I had the documents needed to help the case. Their finance department is also great, they work with you as far as payments. Everyone at their office is pleasant to talk to and easy to work with. Shaheem and Armina worked my case, they are both amazing, kind and extremely knowledgeable. They went to court for me every single time, I work very long hours so this was very helpful! They would call me with updates, explained throughly how court went and what steps we needed to take in order to take action. Both Shaheem and Armina made me feel secured, they were very aggressive, they used tactics my previous lawyer did not use. After a few court battles it seemed there was no hope for me and the prosecutor said there was no way for me to be able to get another wet reckless. All because of me, and the logistics of my case but that did not stopped them, they did no give up! Armina kept reaching out to the prosecutor, she was going back and forward for a whole week!! Let me tell you; these are the kind of lawyers who you need fighting your battles, this is the type of lawyer you need in your corner. I remember this day, it seemed all hope was lost, for a second I was going to loose my job, stability, get second time DUI, jail time all the bad stuff you do not want in your life. However, Armina called with some great news, she had been working all morning and she was able to work out a deal with prosecutor and finally got me a second wet which in my case was impossible!! They got me the absolute best outcome, exactly what we wanted! This is another success story!!! I am proof that they are the best, they got the results we all wanted! I am EXTREMELY happy. To say the least I have learned my lesson, my first wet I was young,reckless and barely remember anything but this one hurt, I felt the pain for a second. I am truly blessed, this is definitely life changing for me and as of now I am currently living life sober. I know it sounds cliche but do not drink and drive, do not even take the chance. If you did, it is not too late, give them a call! They will help you like they did me. Once again, thank you Shaheem, thank you Armina and thank God for Manshoory law firm! I will be staying out of trouble!

Expungement Success
First and for most I would like to thank Manshoory Law Group for their tremendous work with my case. I would like to emphasize the my case part. Everyone’s story is different and every outcome is different. In my situation I was fortunate enough to find the perfect law group (I did my research prior to choosing Manshoory LG). As I write this review there are so many emotions going through my mind. The WHAT IFS and WHAT COULD’VE BEEN. Manshoory LG helped expunge my record as a first time offender. From the beginning they were persistent and detailed. Communication every step of the way. I was assisted by 3-4 staff members including the main man himself. And I can safely say the experience did not disappoint. I am glad I received that follow up call from Manshoory LG. I was on the fence about doing this process. Manshoory LG gave me the confidence to move forward and I am happy to say because of Manshoory LG my record has been expunged. Truly all bases were covered and I am happy to close this chapter in my life. Thank you Manshoory Law Group for the service you provide. It will never be forgotten. Highly recommend if you are ever in need of legal services.

DUI
I called many law firms, but my gut told me to go with this one. Getting a DUI felt very stressful and emotional. I am very grateful I did not have to do any work. I always received updates and checks with my case. Everyone at Manshoory works as a team and they took great care of me. I was so nervous about getting a DUI on my record, but as the great team that they are they got my charges reduced!! The court house I went to is very strict and I am surprised at my reduced charges. This team worked hard for me and more importantly communicated with me every step of the way.

Professional and a wonderful Human
Exceeded my expectations! I had contacted Manshoory Law Group, regarding some long outstanding issues my son had with the court system. My son suffers from serious mental health problems and as such would be unable personally attend a stressful court appearance. The compassion and perseverance shown by Shaheen (owner of the law firm) was amazing. We can now put this problem behind us. Thanks again for being a great attorney and wonderful human being!

I needed help from an attorney from a case I had lingering of some threat. Over at Manshoory Law Group, Shaheen and his team ensure everything was going to be and checked on any status everyday. They respond and check up on you regularly. Would definitely recommend partnering up with Manshoory as they will make sure they will fight for you.

Great team!
I chose this firm originally because out of all the law firms I contacted they were the most proactive and they helped me on the spot. Travis Sabaitis was very thorough and supportive during this whole legal process. I’m grateful for him and his help. They always made sure that I was aware of what was going on and they were communicating every step of the way. They helped me understand the law more than I did prior to this.

Would most definitely recommend Manshoory Law Group!!
I'm so glad I chose Manshoory Law Group to help me with my case. Even though I was out of state at the time they always kept in touch and communicated thoroughly throughout the whole ordeal. This was my first time going through something like this and I was unsure of what to do but reaching out to them was best decision. All of my expectations were and then some. Thanks to Adam and the Manshoory Law Group.

Best criminal defense attorney
I can’t praise Shaheen enough. If you are looking for an excellent defense attorney who can get you out of trouble look no further. He will get it done. Not to mention, he is an extremely caring person who takes time to understand all the nuances, stays calm under pressure, guides you in the right direction and provides emotional support. Calls and texts always get answered almost immediately. He is always available even if it is just to calm you down, like in my case. He even took my call when he was on vacation overseas and in a different time zone. Shaheen was my second lawyer in the Restraining Order case, after I let go of my first very high profile lawyer who just was not up to the task. My case was difficult, as we were going up against a man with unlimited resources and an army of lawyers with only one mission to get revenge on me and get a permanent restraining order, including a violation of one which is a felony. Scary stuff to say the least, particularly with my immigration status and career on the line . Shaheen rose to the occasion and was able to get the case dismissed. His knowledge of technicalities, judicial system and strategy are unparalleled. While I hope that I will never have to use a criminal defense attorney again, he would be the man I would recommend for anyone to retain. In the industry full of people just looking to make quick money and do as little work as possible he stands out as a breath of fresh air with his incredible work ethic, poise and confidence. He also delivers the results! Like in my case that seemed almost impossible to win. He was able to string arm the opposing counsel to get the case dismissed even without a hearing. I don’t know what I would have done without Shaheen and am eternally grateful. Separate note about his staff who always checked in on me, kept me posted about the process and were always available.

Never Doubted His Professionalism
I was a mess, mentally, when I got my consultation—but even then he remained collected, professional, and understanding. I always had my questions answered promptly by his firm and he was always punctual and fast during court proceedings. He worked around the trickiest parts of my case like being uninsured and undocumented and still got my felony charge dismissed. I couldn’t be happier.

Shaheen and Manshoory Law Firm are the best!
Shaheen and Manshoory Law Group were a Gift from God for me! They helped me through the most difficult time of my life. They also had me as a client through the pandemic which was even more difficult for them to navigate through the case. Multiple people from the firm consistently checked in on me and made sure I was prepared for every event. I highly recommend their services to anyone. I also love that I had a flat rate from the beginning. No BS additional costs or expenses at anytime, and my case lasted over one year. Shaheen was my guy at the firm, but others working there seemed to be good as well. They also made me feel secure through the whole process. Trust me and go with this firm! Also, WE WON IN COURT!
