He now uses his prosecutorial experience and legal knowledge to defend people facing criminal charges.

He is well-known for his principled and unwavering approach to legal counsel and aggressive criminal defense. Our team at Kareem Law APC has the dedication, experience, and expertise to fight for you under his leadership.


If you have been arrested and charged for a crime in San Bernardino County, Riverside County or Los Angeles County you will start speaking with many law offices in search of help. However, not all law offices will provide the right help for your specific situation. At Kareem Law APC we understand hard-working individuals do not have the time to make sure they are speaking to the right people. To help you make this process easier you will need to know what questions to ask in your search for answers.

After reading this material feel free to call us 24/7 for a free initial criminal consultation at 888-506-6519.

1. Do you offer free criminal consultations?

Dealing with police, serving time in jail, and being accused of committing a crime is very scary. When you take the first step to contact our office we promise to listen to your complete story without a financial commitment. At Kareem Law APC we believe in providing a free in-person criminal consultation where you can meet our team in a one-on-one secure setting. Attorney KAREEM A. RAMADAN understands the important role he and his staff hold to protect our community when the government is accusing you of committing a crime. When you call our office you will always be free to share your story at no charge.

2. How well do you understand my case?

At Kareem Law APC we understand that the only way to truly understand your case is to take the time to listen to your story. As a client-focused San Bernardino, Riverside, and Los Angeles County criminal defense firm, we believe in investigating every detail of your story to determine what led to your arrest and how to create a personalized defense to your case. Many criminal attorneys lack the passion to patiently listen to your story and miss important details that can be the difference from a criminal conviction and earning a dismissal! Whether it’s a common case of PC 647(f) public intoxication or a complex case such as PC 245(a)(1) assault with a deadly weapon we approach each case with the same attitude of paying attention to the legal, factual and mitigating issues of your story. At Kareem Law APC we have years of specialized training from Judges, Police Captains and former prosecutors and are able to find errors and false statements in the evidence that have led to countless dismissals and acquittals at trial.

3. How much is this going to cost?

The best way to fight an unfair criminal justice system is having a great criminal defense attorney to get you through it. At Kareem Law APC we recognize how important of a role we play in our community and strive to make our fees easy to understand and accept with your other financial obligations. At Kareem Law APC, we provide a “Flat-Fee” for our clients’ cases to provide certainty of what their overall costs will be during this challenging time. Our mission is to provide value in your life at a reasonable rate. Contact our office today for a free criminal consultation and take the first step in protecting your rights and preserving your future.

4. Do I need a local attorney for my case?

A local attorney is one who chooses to practice law heavily in one region. Local attorneys are able to build stronger relationships with judges, prosecutors, and court staff, which in turn, can help influence your case in the right direction. A local attorney can even use his knowledge of the Judge or Prosecutor assigned to your case to build a better strategy for success. Note, not all cases will require a local advantage for a successful outcome. At Kareem Law APC, our attorneys have spent our careers focused on building and maintaining relationships with key players in our local criminal justice system, specifically in the San Bernardino County, Riverside County, and Los Angeles County areas.

5. Will you personally be handling my case?

Achieving a successful result for your case requires a team effort. At Kareem Law APC we have a stellar team of attorneys, paralegals, and investigators that are assigned to each case we represent. But every team needs a vocal leader to ensure the work is being done. Founding attorney KAREEM A. RAMADAN works each case from start to finish and ensures that his presence is felt at every critical stage of your case. Be wary, not every criminal defense office value their client’s trust. In fact, countless horror stories exist of hard-working individuals who pay good money for help from “law offices” but never receive the attention they need. Some may not even hear or see their attorney until months after their case has been filed. At Kareem Law APC we honor our profession by honoring our client’s trust to see that we get the job done.

6. How well do you communicate with your clients?

A great criminal defense attorney should not view his relationship to his client as a “job”. At Kareem Law APC we separate ourselves from other criminal attorneys by having our clients feel we are accessible and easy to reach. Attorney KAREEM A. RAMADAN offers his leadership and counsel anytime you need answers on your case. From the moment you call our office, you will be connected with Attorney KAREEM A. RAMADAN or his associate attorneys to help you in your time of need.

7. Does the lawyer show personal concern and a genuine desire to want to help?

When you are accused of a crime you need a team of attorneys that have the compassion to patiently listen to your story and genuinely care about your situation. At Kareem Law APC we are dedicated to protecting your rights and preserving your future no matter how long that process may take. Your case should not be trusted with anyone who does not share these values.

8. Do you take your cases to trial?

At Kareem Law APC we understand that to achieve a successful result in defending our clients we must be ready to take your case to trial. A great criminal defense attorney must always be ready to accept that as a possibility for their case. Be careful, many criminal defense law firms have no desire to try cases as part of their practice. At Kareem Law APC, our seasoned attorneys are not afraid to fight back and take our cases to trial when we believe doing so is in the client’s best interest. We have built a reputation in San Bernardino County, Riverside County, and Los Angeles county of answering the bell of trial and winning for our client.

9. Do you have experience with other areas of the law?

A great criminal defense lawyer must always find time to learn other areas of the law to better serve their clients. Two common areas of law that frequently overlaps a criminal case are employment law and immigration law. If you are arrested and employed with a license (real estate, EMT, caregiver) or you need to pass a background check, you will likely need advice on what will happen to your license when the California Department of Consumer Affairs sends you a letter informing you that your license may be revoked. If you an arrested for a crime and are one of the millions of people who are a permanent resident (green card holder), asylum seeker, or an undocumented non-resident, you will need to know how your case may result in immigration consequences like deportation and the denial of naturalization. Attorney KAREEM A. RAMADAN will have answers to these questions during your consultation 

10. Do you have a proven track record of success?

When you are accused of a crime, you need help from dedicated, passionate attorneys who have compassion for your situation and the experience to bring you the best results to your case. A successful result is measured by the facts and circumstances of each unique case. A successful result may be a completely dismissed case, a case not being filed through a pre-trial investigation, dismissed/reduced charges during pre-trial negotiations, dismissed charges at a preliminary hearing, or a not guilty verdict at trial. Our mission is to build a personalized strategy for your unique case that will increase your success in the courtroom.

– Oscar A.

That's what happened to me and I was extremely embarrassed about it because I work for a fortune 500 company. A friend of mine told me not to worry and give Mr. Ramadan a call. The next day Kareem met with me on a Saturday afternoon and went over my case with me. He was quick, responsive, and hands on from the first moment I met him. The following week I received a call from Kareem telling me he was able to convince the DMV not to suspend my license. But the best news came when we went to court and Kareem negotiated my case down to a speeding ticket. Embarrassment averted. Thank you Kareem.

– Allen O.

I was charged with felony 2nd degree burglary and receipt of stolen property and was prepared to go to trial, if need be. Mr. Ramadan and his investigator took a long look at my case and found several issues with the police's investigation. He worked tirelessly to present the right defenses in court and eventually convinced the prosecutor to drop the charges. My case was dismissed and we never needed to go to trial. There was no better feeling than walking out of that courthouse a free man. I owe my freedom to Kareem and his team.

I was faced with a case that never in my life I’d imagine to be dealing with that could’ve had detrimental effects on my life and career ending. Kareem was the best defense I had to get my life back together. From start to finish Kareem was very attentive, informative and determined to help get this fixed and he did! The case was never filed! Thank you!

I was arrested and was facing 2 felonies in October and spent some time sitting in county jail. After calling tens of lawyers to help I immediately knew Kareem would provide the help I was looking for. He walked me through the entire court process and was very reassuring that I had nothing to worry about. It is a great feeling when you have a confident lawyer behind you. Kareem managed to get my case dismissed and I have no charges on my record now. I don’t think I would have this result if it weren’t for his help. I would recommend him to anyone. He knows what he’s doing and he is the man for the job.

Before hiring Kareem Law I made the mistake of listening to some ads for personal injury attorneys on the radio. I did not know what to expect since this was my first time needing to hire an attorney. The first office never returned my calls and never connected me with an attorney. I thought attorneys wanted to help their clients not treat them like dirt. I found Kareem's office after a family member told me of an attorney who did excellent work on his personal injury case.From the first call with Kareem he created a strong relationship with me where I felt appreciated and heard. Mr. Ramadan was always available when I needed answers and did a fabulous job settling my case.

I was very fortunate to have had Kareem as my attorney. From our very first conversation, I could tell he was very knowledgeable and experienced. His empathy and care for my situation, were encouraging and made me feel safe. Kareem was very personable, reachable, and communicated clearly. Kareem put a lot of effort to get the case dismissed and achieve a complete resolution without the additional stress of a trial. I am beyond grateful to him!

Never in my life, did I think I would need a criminal defense attorney. A close family member committed a federal crime and suddenly I was searching for a criminal defense attorney. I submitted an inquiry to all lawyers in the Upland area and I am so thankful that Attorney Kareem was quick to reply on a Sunday afternoon!The next day, he was already doing a jail visit with my family member. The following day, we were meeting and discussing the case in his office. Right from the beginning,Kareem expressed his care and compassion for us and my incarcerated family member. He also made us feel very comfortable telling us a personal story of his that made him appreciate nurses, which my mom and I are! This life journey of his, made us feel that he knows the value of life and our family member would be in excellent hands.Kareem was always available to answer all our questions. If you call him or text him, he will always respond right away or within a few hours. This was an extremely difficult time in our lives and Kareem was always there to ease our minds. When trying to find an attorney who is going to save your life or a close family members, you have to fully trust your lawyer and Kareem is that man. He strongly advocated for my family member and got him released from jail with a mental health diversion. This was the goal from the beginning and we could not be more thankful to Attorney Kareem for the outcome.
