Sal Sheikh - Attorney at Law
542 S Dearborn St Ste 510, Chicago, IL 60605
I am re-writing my review (which he asked me to do before trial, see below) to rectify a wrong. Avoid this man at all cost. He lies to clients, he's a raging alcoholic, the man is highly inappropriate and he just won't go away! I've asked him to stay away from me and my family multiple times through the last couple years (first ask was about two years ago) and yet he still finds a way to stop by and ruin my day. I wouldn't trust him if he were the last lawyer on earth that could defend me or a loved one - I'd rather go to jail. Read more about this shady character below, on google reviews (mine is the only one star) and on Avvo.
Note that most of Sals reviews here and else where are all copy and paste by clients - he asks his clients to do this even before the case is over. Look him up and I'm sure you'll be able to match up the cookie cutter reviews.
Sal took care of my legal issues ( half assed ) but managed to get entangled with my life in ways one should avoid at all costs. He's also a habitual liar and alcoholic. Even if you got a contract he will try and change it on you - ie you work out a payment plan that is clearly stated, but before the court dates he suddenly needs more money or the rest of what you agreed to make payments on. Seek better, morally sound legal aide elsewhere because it's not here.
I did a consultation with Sal originally for mydrug possession case. I didn't hire him and went with someone else. Well about 5 months in to my case I wasn't satisfied with my attorney and fired him. I then hired Sal. Sal got me a type of probation that I can expunge if I stay out of trouble. I appreciated the hard work he did for my case and the favorable outcome.
Sal was a breathe of fresh air when I met him. Consulting with other attorneys was a stressful and I would even go as far as to say a disappointing process. Immediately upon meeting Sal in person he put me at ease and I could see he was engaged in thinking about my case while we were talking. He handled my criminal case and got a resolution I was ecstatic with to say the least! He's a good person who has a great deal of varied life experience that fascinated me. I hope he uses his talents one day and shares them with us all. I'm of the opinion that he should run for political office! Thank you sir, God Bless.
Sal helped me with a domestic case I had at 555 W. Harrison. He was really patient with me throughout the process which was very emotional for me. I appreciate that he seemed to always know the small details I shared with him and always had a warm smile when we met.
I would recommend Sal to anyone in search of an attorney in Chicago or Cook County. Thank You SO Much!!!
Sal was my attorney for an auto case where someone had sideswiped me originally. As that case was ongoing other issues in life appeared. Sal has a genuineness to him that I was instrumental in my decision making process.
I would recommend you consult with Sal if you're in need of an attorney.
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!
My case could have been really bad had I not found a good attorney. I found Sal because he had great reviews. He was respectful and cared about my case and everyone involved. He worked endlessly for us and it paid off. His costs are reasonable and we worked out a deal. I would highly recommend him. Thanks for your work Sal.
A drunk guy crashed into my car at an intersection. I tried dealing with his Insurance company but they kept giving me the run around. I was injured and my car, my only car needed to get fixed. I didn't have full coverage either. I called Sal after finding him online. Sal got the insurance company of the guy who hit me, to fix my car and to also pay for my medical treatment. I would recommend that if you are hurt in a car crash to call Sal.
During Thanksgiving break I was in Chicago visiting with some college friends. I got in to a bit of trouble with the law and used Sal as my lawyer. I had called several others lawyers on the phone and even went to a couple of office visits. Sal was the one I chose. He was easy to deal with and was not a Dinosaur like some of the other lawyers who I visited with. The result was good and Sal kept my court time and dates to a minimum because I lived out of state at the time. This was years ago.
