Tarek Shawky was referred to me by a friend. Tarek, he did a great job representing me and my case. He was very professional, he and his firm knew their legal stuff. They helped me understand all charges against me and fought very hard for me. He walked me through the court process with confidence and comfort. I couldn't be happier with the result.He took care of my legal situation and as a result i got back to my career and with providing for my family. If I ever need a lawyer again, I definitely will hire Tarek Shawky again. I recommend him to anyone who needs a criminal lawyer.

I was arrested following a false allegation made against me while visiting Pasadena. I called Tarek for a free consultation and he walked me through the process and told me what to expect. I spoke with him several times before retaining him and he was always willing to speak with me even before we hired him. He worked with me regarding the fee and was eager to help. Once I hired him he communicated on my behalf with the Pasadena Police, the District Attorney and the City Attorney. Ultimately no charges were filed against me which was the best case scenario. He was always available by phone and email and he consistently updated me regarding the status and progress of my case. Overall I was very pleased with his service and I would recommend him to anyone who needs a good criminal defense attorney.

I met Tarek at an event in Pasadena, he seemed friendly and knowledgeable so I took his card. I never imagined I would need his services a few weeks later. I called him late one night after my friend got arrested at the bar. I called after hours, he took the call and took the time to give me a free consultation over the phone. The next day we met, I hired him and he was very professional and thorough and took care of everything from A to Z until the case settled in the best possible way. He is smart, he has great people skills and he's very friendly and kind. I recommend him whole-heartedly to anyone in a bind that needs a solid criminal lawyer. Thanks Tarek!

Mr. Shawky helped me out in such a incredible way. I was facing multiple criminal charges for a crime I did not committ. Mr. Shawky stood by my side every step of the way. At the end Mr. Shawky was able to fight for me and get everyone of my charges dismissed. I would refer anyone and everyone I know to this great professional!

Tarek is a genius. I did what he advised and I was able to dodge the bull. He continued to provide the counseling even outside our agreement. If I have to hire again, I will not flinch to call him to represent me.

While facing numerous charges, including evading an officer, I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Shawky as my appointed Public Defender. Mr. Shawky LISTENED to me and supported my decision to plead not guilty. Mr. Shawky is an EXCELLENT investigator. He went to Lake Perris, where the incident happened, mapped the location and drew diagrams. He interviewed the witnesses. Once Mr. Shawky presented his findings to the DA, ALL CHARGES WERE DISMISSED. I am happy to have had Mr. Shawky represent me. If this is the kind of service he provided as a PD, I can just imagine the extraordinary service he provides independently without the bureaucracy.

I have been fortunate enough to trust my family by picking the best attorney I have ever experienced. I was prosecuted in San Bernardino County (which is a different county that Tarek is from) for a felony theft case with a strike prior. The police found the stolen property in my room and the DA wanted to send me to prison for 3 years, double my time at 85% because of the strike. I am on probation and parole as well. Tarek was able to negotiate a plea where I was released on probation and I'm now doing a rehab program instead of jail or prison. Tarek truly knows what he is doing. Thank You!

He is one off the worst lawyers I've ever seen. Your ratings misled my decision to hire him as my lawyer; me and my friends hired him after reading his ratings on your website (9.6) at the time. He did me no good and he was unresponsive and unhelpful throughout my case. After the trial was over and I was released (not by his help) he refused to give me back the amount of money agreed on if I were to be released without his effort., and I was because my case was dropped by the other party. He refused to file several documents during the case even though I asked him to (the documents and findings were crucial to my case). I have the case number, all the evidence of my claims, and all paperwork if needed. A copy of eevrything has been submitted to the BAR.
