5.0 out of 5 stars

I was given a summons by a police officer for failing to yield to a pedestrian. I was at loss. All I knew is that I had a hearing to attend. Looking for an attorney was no fun. In one day, I spoke to six attorneys who did not give me enough attention, we?re not willing to listen to me or simply gave me wrong advice. I was nervous. Thank G-d, I found Mehdi and sent him a message. He responded me shortly and called me the next day. He explained everything in detail, took his time with me and I was impressed by his knowledge, confidence and kindness. During the process, he responded to all my questions promptly and I knew I was not alone. Today, we won the case. Mehdi was exceptional. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an attorney. You?ll be in the best hands. Thank you for everything, Mehdi. You are awesome.

The NYPD has taken to serving a summons on safe drivers that are run into by pedestrians and bike riders. These actions can have very negative ramification for the innocent driver's insurance and will leave a mark on their safety record. It was my pleasure to defend you against this accusation, establish your innocence, and work along side you through out the process. Innocent people should never be accused without any basis under fact or law.
