Attorney Mehdi Essmidi represented me in a trial and from the start I could tell that he knew exactly what to do. He was knowledgeable and prepared on the law.. Thanks to Mehdi the jury found me not guilty. More importantly thanks to his work, Mehdi helped me prove my innocence when the police wrongfully accused me and the prosecutors refused to help me find Justice. If you're accused of a crime and you need an attorney that can actually help you, you need to call Mehdi. He's definitely worth it.


I got the chance to meet Mehdi when I was fighting a felony case and lost all hope. Mehdi treated me more than a client, he gave me hope, he answered every call text and let me know everything from jump. I have a young child and the charge I was facing was going to make it be hard to take care of my son, but Mehdi did everything in his power to get my charges dropped and I couldn’t be more grateful and thankful. I would definitely recommend him in a heart beat, he is amazing and gives his client a peace of mind. For once I had a lawyer who actually cared and showed it.


Attorney Mehdi Essmidi was a life saver. I was in a very horrible situation, where I reached out to Mehdi on a Sunday, and was able to speak with him regarding my issues. Rather than wait until the following Monday, we set a time to meet & speak so take action in regards to my issues. Fast forward, my case was later dismissed - and my I was able to resume my daily life. Cheers to Mehdi.
