Farid Ahmed indeed one of the best criminal defense attorney I know. I was falsely accused of multiple felonies and he got all the charges drop down to minor violations. This saved my Green Card status, prevented jail time and imminent deportation. I would highly recommend Farid Ahmed’s legal counsel.
