Ghazal - The Best
I am writing to express my deepest gratitude for the unwavering support and guidance you provided during one of the most challenging times of my life. When I found The G Firm, I was at an all-time low, uncertain of what lay ahead after my DUI. From the moment I met you, Ghazal, I realized that there was hope, that I could take action and navigate through this difficult situation. The DUI process felt like an endless, daunting journey, but your presence, from the very beginning to the conclusion, was a source of immense comfort. Your dedication and commitment to assisting me through every step of the legal process were nothing short of remarkable. It was evident that you weren't just a great lawyer, but an extraordinary human being whose genuine priority was to help people, to offer guidance, and to provide hope in seemingly hopeless situations. If there's anyone reading this who finds themselves in a situation similar to mine, I urge you to reach out to Ghazal. Trust me, you will not regret it. She's not just an exceptional attorney; she's a beacon of light during dark times, a true advocate for those in need. Thank you, Ghazal, for being the unwavering rock that steadied me during a storm. Your compassion and expertise made a world of difference, and I will forever be grateful for your presence in my life. With heartfelt appreciation

Highly recommended lawyer
Ghazal was the most amazing to work with. She works extra hard on your case, is very clear and prompt in her communication, even when you anxiously ask her the same question the million-th time. She has been so helpful in all steps starting from corrective courses, explaining next steps, what documents need to be arranged, explaining in layman terms what the process would be like. She worked extra hard to reduce charges as much as possible. Further she always gives you a real view of the possible outcomes at each stage. She is highly knowledgable and also extremely kind throughout the process. The best decision in this whole process was hiring Ghazal.

Vert Satisfied Cleint
Ghazal was amazing. Achieved the exact outcome we were looking for (wet reckless) while making the process as easy as possible. She took care of everything related to the case, which as a first time offended learning the system, was very helpful. She was also very strategic in working with the prosecution and judge. Also really seemed to care about you and was more human! Really knows what she's doing. She made a really rough situation a lot more manageable. Worth every penny! Thank you, Ghazal.

Wouldn’t of chosen anyone else
Ghazel was the most helpful, through, and organized person I could’ve ever asked to help me. I received my DUI and found her online the next day. I asked to talk with her the same day and while it said she didn’t have any meeting times available, she made time for me anyway. From that point forward there wasn’t a hint of disappointment with her. She worked diligently to ensure I got the best result, and that I did. I got a better decision through the courts, reduced fines, and SO MUCH MORE. Ghazel Sharif made an awful situation a lot more manageable and you can tell she truly cares about you as a person. You will not be disappointed.

Best lawyer
I do not know where to start from so I'll start from the beginning) I got a my first DUI in December 2022 I’m from Europe and I didn't know what to do and who should I turn to Help... my English is not so good and I don't know the system my friend recommended me to hire a lawyer But I was skeptical because I thought I was going to spend even more money that I don't have and that the outcome will be the same but I decided to try and I'm glad I did!!! I found Ghazal online she is a true professional in her work and beyond she also gave me her private number so she was available 24/7 she saved my A..!!! I don't know how, but she managed to reduce my sentence from DUI to reckless driving that i got DUI it would be more difficult for me to apply for citizenship so I owe her a huge thanks for everything she has done for me! I highly recommend Ghazal Sharif the only thing I'm sad for is that I didn't manage to shake hands with the woman who saved me.

There are not enough stars for Ghazal!
From my initial contact my experience was great. Prior to that I had been feeling nervous and with high anxiety! Ghazal recognized that and help me calm down. At that point I knew I had made the best decision in contacting Ghazal! On that same day she contacted the DMV on my behalf. She devised a plan for me to obtain the best possible outcome. She continually kept me informed about my status. She periodically check with me to se if I had any questions. Ghazal is not just a Lawyer but a person that without doubt identifies with you! Her dedication and hard work obtained the best possible outcome for me! I highly recommend Ghazal to anyone that is seeking for the best possible outcome!

The Right Lawyer for Me
I was worried what my future would look like if I didn't seek representation. I already struggle financially and couldn't begin to imagine paying the state tens of thousands of dollars in fines or abandoning my life for time in jail. Once I found Ghazal, and spoke with her, my anxieties were gone. She understood my situation and assured me of how I could best help myself. After everything, I find myself wondering how I was fortunate enough to be able to retain her services. She is incredibly considerate, trustworthy, and diligent. I am forever grateful to her for her advocacy.

5 Stars! I would give 10 Stars if I could!
The morning after my DUI I found Ghazal (The G Law Firm) and gave her a call, and it was the best decision I could have made. She was always calm, confident and supportive. This was an extremely stressful and disappointing event and she always made me feel like she cared. She never missed a phone call of mine, even for a stupid question. She was with me every step of the way with a game plan for a successful result. She delivered over and over again. She was a Godsend, I could not recommend her more. Thank you Ghazal!!

DUI Case
Ghazal first contacted me after I sent an inquiry of my case to her firm. I was very nervous, anxious and literally stressing when she called. I had no clue what to expect, only just a large bill. I was taken back by her kindness. I explained everything and how I was on top of what was needed to prove I was remorseful. After explaining what I had taken care of, she immediately advised my next steps to take (which I had no knowledge of) and it ended up saving me tons of money, which I would probably still have paid until my final court hearing. Although she was caring, I did expect more questioning of who I was. (Totally nervous about since the beginning). With the final outcome of my case and the call she placed to me in the evening of 01/22, I was left in tears and only wanted to hug and kiss Ghazal in the cheek for the outcome she produced. She is very professional, prompt, trustworthy and a pro. Thanks, again, Ghazal.

Great Decision!
After reading reviews and speaking with Ghazal over the phone I decided to hire her. She quickly got to work on my case and exceeded my expectations! My situation was hectic to say the least! Not to go into detail, but I lost a lot and went to a dark place. Ghazal was very understanding and did everything in her power to help me through the process: She gave me hope. Answered any and every question I had in a timely manner. Kept me involved with the brainstorming and different ways to approach my case. Spoke with my job to help mitigate the situation. Stayed on top of every alert involving my case and much more. At the end of it all, my case was severely reduced. I can’t thank Ghazal enough for the hard work and compassion she has shown. Thank you, Ghazal Sharif, for making this heartbreaking process much easier for me.

Hire Ghazal. She will not fail you.
I had reached out to Ghazal for a simple inquiry; consultation- which she provided fee of charge. After our phone call, I knew she was my attorney I wanted for legal representation. If you’re inquiring around an attorney for representation, do yourself a favor and proceed with Ghazal. She is hands down the best there is!! Thousand percent recommend, and cannot recommend enough. Thank you Ghazal!!

SUPER GRATEFUL
I have been searching for so long on how to fix my credit score, earlier 2022 I had a credit score of 491, charge offs and several negative items and collections. Today I finally found the right company PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST and was able to get my score high to 800s across board within 6 days and also removed all negative items and charge offs from my credit report. I now have a new credit report with a clean history. If you’ve a bad credit profile, you can contact them. I’m super grateful for their services. Just want to share my GOOD NEWS!!!
