About me

Giving Your Case the Attention It Deserves

If you have been charged with a crime, a passionate and energetic lawyer can make a huge difference. Criminal charges come with serious consequences, so it is important to hire someone who will take the time to give you personal attention and skilled representation.

I'm Nabiel C. Ahmed, a criminal defense attorney based in Oakland, California. My mission is to provide my clients with the best possible defense against accusations of DUI, drug crimes, sex crimes and all other criminal charges. For a free consultation, contact me today.

Taking the Right Approach to Your Situation

My legal practice is devoted to criminal defense. As a solo practitioner, I provide personal attention to every client who hires me. I respond quickly to clients' questions and concerns, and personally handle every case. I want you to be satisfied with your case results, and won't rest until you are.

I have a real passion for criminal defense. I understand how important it is to have someone who will stand up for your rights and go the distance for you.

I consider myself an attorney my clients can relate to. I believe in being direct and getting to the point. Fostering relationships with my clients allows me to offer them the best possible defense.

My representation is based on careful observation of what the courts— including judges, juries, and prosecutors — are really looking for. I will keep the lines of communication open with you, and follow up on what I say I'm going to do. To discuss your case with a skilled advocate, call me toll free at 888-323-8083 or send me an e-mail today.
