Summary

WELCOME. For those seeking a DUI and criminal defense lawyer, welcome! I am the Founding Partner of the Law Office of Ghazal Sharif. I defend good people facing DUI and criminal charges. As a former prosecutor and passionate defense lawyer, I am results driven and client focused. I offer results, move for dismissals, fight for reduced charges and negotiate plea deals. I do what is best for my clients because my clients’ wins are my wins.

FIRM SPECIALITY. I aspire to be the go–to lawyer for the toughest cases. I am often hired by clients with make–or–break matters, including immigrants, commercial drivers, licensed professionals, military service members and drivers under 21.

THE TIME TO ACT IS NOW. The time to act is now because your driver’s license will be suspended unless a DMV Hearing is requested within 10 days of arrest.

IMMIGRATION CONSEQUENCES. A DUI arrest may have effects on immigration. It is critical to consult with a lawyer immediately to determine what, if any, potential immigration consequences a DUI arrest may have on your immigration status.

COST. My primary goal is to make my fees affordable. Because being arrested is unplanned, I work with clients to create affordable payment plans to take care of legal fees.
