Auto Accidents


If you were injured in an auto accident, motorcycle accident, slip and fall, dog bite, or medical malpractice case call The Law Office of Ameen & Shafii for a free, no obligation consultation.


Personal Attention
At our firm, the attorney's will meet with you and personally handle your case from START to FINISH. With many firms you only meet the attorney the first time you sign the contract and then you deal with a paralegal or secretary. Not at Ameen & Shafii. Our attorneys personally handle your case. If at any time you have a question about your case, an attorney, not a paralegal or secretary, will be there to respond to you. They will know the status of your case and respond in a timely matter to your questions.


Proven Advocates for Victims
As former prosecutors we have advocated for victims throughout our careers. While at the State Attorney's office, we aggressively prosecuted individuals that caused hit and runs accidents, DUIs with property damage and injury, and numerous other offenses resulting in injury. Our goal then and our goal now is to help you be fully compensated for your injury.


We are Trial Attorneys
If an insurance company has made a low offer to settle your case, the next step is to file a lawsuit and go to trial. Insurance companies know which lawyers try cases and which lawyers just settle cases. Our attorneys have gone to trial over 100 times in their careers and we won’t back down from a fight in court.


Skilled at Proving Negligence
At Ameen & Shafii we are skilled at proving negligence. To prove fault, we use a variety of tools to reconstruct the accident including police investigation, private investigation, photos of the scene, diagrams and drawings of the accident. We also interview witnesses and hire accident reconstruction to recreate the accident. To help the jury understand, we use visual representations and models to show and not just tell how the accident happened.


If you don't win, you don't pay. It's as simple as that. We handle injury cases based on a contingency, meaning if there is a recover then our fee comes out of the settlement. If there is no settlement, you dont pay us for the work we have done on the case. The insurance company has already started working on their case, don't delay, contact our office today to start defending your rights.
