Miriam Seddiq

Criminal, Immigration, Appellate Lawyer: That’s what I do! As a solo practicing attorney, I am hardworking and reliable. I pride myself on doing far more than the bare minimum, never discounting any possibilities in my clients cases until I have vetted every avenue for success or defense. Candid and frank, I will tell you the issues as I see them. My job isn’t to ‘make the client take a plea” rather to advise of every risk and option. I believe the final decision always lies with the client however, along the way, I provide the information for an informed decision.
