    I hired Mr. Sheikh due to the fact that he is professional, knowledgeable, a great listener, easy to talk to and most importantly acts with a sense of urgency. I received a phone call within the hour I left him a message! A bright and compassionate attorney, from our first conversation he made me feel at ease and did not judge me for the situation I had placed myself in (criminal charges). Once we met in person I could tell he had the experience and expertise I needed for my situation. I’m so thankful he took my case; other attorneys’ plans were not good options for me and Sal had a different plan and approach that worked! He worked around my schedule, patiently answered all my questions and explained what to expect several times over the course of my year-long ordeal. Sal’s been doing this a long time, is very good at what he does and knows what to do to get you the best outcome for your case. Call Sal!

    Sal has helped with with a number of legal pitfalls that have popped up in my life. He remembers me when I call and is not judgmental. I've recommended Sal to many of my freinds/acquaintances over the years.

    I cannot thank Attorney Sal Sheikh enough for handling my case at court. He is very easy to talk to and would listen to me when I talked also. I would hire Sal Sheik if you need an Attorney!

    Sal is one of the nicest lawyers I've met. He was actually interested in my case. We worked out a great deal as far as payment and he was polite and always friendly. We won the case! If I ever needed another lawyer I would definitely call Sal. I've already recommended him to other people.

    Salim J Sheikh was not was what I was expecting from a lawyer. He not only soothed my anxieties about my case, but he also gave me back my dignity and hope. The man has worked tirelessly for me and has included me in every step of the process. He has given me more of his time than I would ever reasonably expect from law practitioner. Not only is Mr. Sheikh on top of all things case related, he is also very wise and sharp as a tac. When trouble came looking for me Sal immediately came to my home and discussed the case. From there we drafted a reasonable retainer agreement that allowed me to still keep my head above water. This case was the most serious case I have ever faced and Mr. Sheikh has walked me through the maze. I could not hope for a better Attorney and counselor. Finally I could not recommend Mr. Sheikh more.

    Sal Sheikh has been lawyer for over 4 years. He's been my first & only call when I've needed legal help or advice. He's the best at what he does

    I hired Sal to represent me for a theft case. He explained what my options were and helped me expunge the record of the arrest afterwards. I was most impressed by his ability to remember small details about my case and me personally from what seemed to be memory. I would recommend Sal to friends or family if they needed a lawyer. The website url is genius.

    If you need an Attorney- call Sal!!! Sal is a brilliant, compassionate and experienced Attorney. He got my charges dismissed. I highly recommend Sal. I talked to several Attorneys and once I met Sal I knew he would work hard for me and that he actually cared! I'm still blown away by the whole experience. Yes, Sal is that good!!!!

    I found Sal online while researching an attorney for my domestic violence case. I consulted with two other lawyers at their offices and felt the most comfortable with Sal. I ended up hiring him to defend me. He got my case dismissed and made sure there were no orders of protection against me.
