Linda Malek is an exceptional attorney. Not only was I dealing with three very serious charges before the court, but these charges occurred 10 years prior to turning myself in. To compound my problems, I also live out of state.Linda was able to work directly with me. She also dedicated extra time when she sat with the presiding judge on my case, on my behalf , in order to discuss my case and possibly get a lessor sentence.In court she was very professional and represented me well. I got a... lighter sentence than I imagined. I am very thankful for this !!!In addition to Linda, she has a wonderful supporting cast in Chelsea and Karen. They always took time to communicate back with me, and tried to keep me calm.Thank you to all of you and Happy holidaysread more
I can not stress enough how happy I am with the attention and service I received from Linda. If I could give 10 stars I would. I was reluctant to hire a lawyer since I was a first time offender, and because of the circumstances of my arrest, but without Linda, I would have done jail time. From the first conversation with her I knew I was in good hands, and that she was going to do everything in her power to get me the best deal possible. She did just that. The outcome of my case was far better... than I ever could have imagined and she fought hard for me until the very end. She does an outstanding job researching every detail of your case and never keeps you in the dark during the process. Her connections with people and relationships with prosecutors and judges really amazed me, and made me feel comfortable in the courtroom. She gave me so much hope during some of the darkest months of my life, and she was there every time I called her with questions or concerns. Do not hesitate to hire her, it was the best decision I could have made.read more
I knew Ms. Malek years before my incident, and I always admired her assertive yet compassionate demeanor. She is everything I would look for in a defense attorney. I hoped I would never need her services, but when I did, Linda was the first person I called. I was CHARGED with a High Tier OVI and Public Indecency, both first degree misdemeanors. I was facing up to a year in jail. From beginning to end, I felt she was truly in my corner. She communicated with prompt responses and close attention,... which put me at ease through a very difficult time in my life. Not once did I feel judged. She offered me great advice and spoke to me like a friend rather than an attorney. When my court date arrived, I was vastly impressed by the integrity, poise, and vigor she displayed in the courtroom. Her negotiations with the prosecution were absolutely brilliant. My High Tier OVI was REDUCED to a Low Tier OVI with minimum penalties, my Public Indecency was DISMISSED, and I served NO JAIL TIME. She went above and beyond to ensure me the best possible outcome, which I was very satisfied with. I will always be grateful for her efforts and I could never thank her enough.read more
Attorney Malek was hands down the BEST choice for my case. Ms. Malek was so attentive and worked so hard on my case, ultimately getting it dismissed. She defends her clients with such tenacity- I was at ease through this entire process. Lastly, Attorney Malek was always available when I needed her to the point she makes her personal cell phone available to her clients to ensure they can always contact her when they are uneasy or have questions. Ms. Malek always made me feel like she had my... case handled and I didn’t need to worry. Thank you Malek Law.read more
DON’T WASTE your money!!! This was the most unprofessional business that I’ve ever had to deal with! Linda and staff were RUDE!! I would not recommend this company to anyone!! At no point did I feel confident in my lawyer or my case! What a waste of my hard earned money! In my opinion you can find a much better lawyer for much cheaper!
Saying my expectations were exceeded would be an understatement. A few months ago, I found myself in a high stress legal situation and was feeling helpless. A mutual friend of mine that had recently finished up with a similar case, happily sent her my way. He could not say enough good things about Ms. Linda Malik, and had me convinced that she was without a doubt the best option for me. I was given Miss Malik’s phone number and called her that evening. When the conversation began, My stress... level and anxiety were through the roof as I frantically tried to explain the situation to her. She was a blessing in disguise because within about 5 to 10 minutes of our initial conversation, she had me feeling good about the situation and the fact that we could overcome it together. I believe the difference between Linda and other lawyers is that Linda cares about each case personally and treats her clients like family rather than people in business together. The court case ended up being about a nine month process From start to finish, and Miss Malik would call me frequently and update me about the situation and how to proceed. As a busy college student with a hectic schedule, the last thing I needed to worry about was a legal case, and Miss Malik was the reason I could stay levelheaded. We came out on the winning side of the case and the relief was overwhelming. I am forever grateful for Linda and her firm, And would very highly recommend her to anyone in a tight legal situation. Thank you again to Ms Linda Malek and her team.read more
I was charged with another OVI and was in danger of losing my job and car, and facing jail time. I did a frantic online search for the best OVI lawyer in the area and Linda's name came up immediately. I reached out to her thinking that she wouldn't get back to me, but she responded the same day and started working with me. Linda and her team are consummate professionals who were honest and communicated clearly what I should do about my situation. Linda then was able to steer my case in a... direction that allowed me to keep my car, job, and avoid jail time all at the same time. I was shocked that she was able to do such, and am extremely grateful for what she did. Linda knows what she is doing and is truly the best around, and I highly recommend her to represent anyone!read more
Linda and her soon to be partner James are some of the most knowledgeable lawyers in northeast Ohio. They work together as a team and communicate all their ideas to make sure that every valuable detail is included in the court. I am blown away at how great of a lawyer Linda is and I am not one to get on and write reviews about businesses, but I had to share my experience working with her because people need to know that Malek Law Firm is the BEST place to reach out to if you need a lawyer. 10... out of 5 stars from me. Take my word when I say the best lawyer in Ohio.read more
Hiring Linda Malek of Malek Law Firm LLC was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. She is exceedingly intelligent, prudent, professional, personable, and tenacious. Her office representatives were communicative and attentive. Several months ago, I was charged with three felonies related to the possession of a Schedule II narcotic (cocaine) in Northeast Ohio. These were serious charges and I thought my life would be over. Linda was highly recommended by a friend, and she came to my first... court appearance on short notice. My bond was set, and I was immediately released, thanks to Linda’s efforts; the court officers told me they were very surprised that I was released immediately and on such a low bond. Linda got my misdemeanor dismissed right away. After several court appearances and hearings, Linda was able to get my third-degree felony dismissed. Somehow, she procured the best deal imaginable for me: ILC that would expunge all convictions after 12 months. It’s clear Linda thoroughly knows the criminal defense and court systems. I do not fully understand how she was able to provide me this best-case-scenario resolution, but I cannot recommend her services enough to anyone else who faces criminal charges.read more
Linda Malek and her team did an amazing job and i would recommend her to anyone. I was charged with a DUI and in a terrible position. She was honest, communicated with me well, and did not just lie to me to get me as a client. I was obviously intoxicated and did not have much hope that I would get a good plea deal. I was able to plea down and did not get an OVI. Also instead of my license being suspended for one year for refusal, I got my license back when I signed my plea deal. I got a better... outcome then I could have imagined. Additionally, the courts were closed down because covid-19, but Linda still got me in front of the judge. She made it a virtual meeting and made signing the plea deal very easy. I can honestly say Linda is an exceptional attorney and is a great choice to represent you.read more
Linda is truly an incredible lawyer. I was referred to her by another lawyer, who wasn't able to take my case, which turned out to be the best thing that could have happened for me. I was originally facing federal charges and Linda was able to get reduced down to a level where I received NO JAIL TIME! She is dedicated, intelligent, thorough, concise, and hard working. She leaves absolutely no stone unturned and will work tirelessly to win. She's an amazing person overall and I'd refer her to... anyone I care about. If you want the best possible results that you can get she should absolutely be your first choice! She is the by far the best lawyer that money can buy. Thank you Linda!!!!!!read more
I am very pleased with Linda's personal attention to my case. She and her assistant were always available if I had any questions. Linda gave me her personal cell phone to ensure I could contact her! I was charged with Domestic Violence and plead no contest to this charge (without a lawyer). I did not realize the full implications of this until it was over and done with. About a week later I contacted Linda and retained her, she got my plea reversed (which almost never happens) and got the... charge dropped down to Disorderly Conduct which is one step above jay walking, not to mention I can get this removed off my record in 1 year. As I said she is a tough cookie and want to ensure she is on your side, she knows the players and will get the job done. So stop reading and call her.read more
My experience with Linda and Karen were exceptional. Very professional and no nonsense! I would recommend them to anyone who was in my situation. Linda got my HIT SKIP dismissed and received the lowest fine possible for just following to close. Thank you so very much for your time and quality of service! 😀

I had my first run in with the law and it was a big first charge (1st offense OVI). I was extremely nervous and anxious but Linda and her team made me feel like I stood a chance. Linda was very upfront and worked through my case, explaining every step of the way. I felt at ease, when I was able to text her or anyone on her team with questions and concerns, at any time. After long negotiations, Linda was able to negotiate down to a physical control charge! I can not thank Linda enough!
Linda Malek and her team were easy to work with. Linda is honest about your situation and will lay out a path that defines the best results possible. She is passionate about her work and you will see this when working with her and her team. She took my 2nd DUI offense that was a tier 2 high with mandatory jail time, 1-5 year suspension, SCRAM ankle monitor, etc. and was able to have it reduced to a 1st offense with minimal fines/suspension. She gets back to you in a timely manner and even took... my call on Christmas Day to confirm my court date and expectations. Seamless process and great experience given my situation. Karen, her office manager, was also easy to work with, very responsive, and she will update you with what you need throughout your process. I would absolutely recommend the Malek Law Firm.read more
Linda is a excellent attorney with a strong presence and a passion to defend her clients. Over the course of my case she explained every step and how the process of the courts worked. She even showed and walked me down to the counter where you pay! Not only did Linda deliver great customer service but she also got results. I was very pleased with her process of establishing a defense and then negotiating a even better resolution! Also she is a great Allie to veterans.
Linda was fantastic to work with. She is knowledgeable about specific laws and violations. She personally helped turn my OVI/Refusal into a physical control with minimum fines and court costs. Additionally, I do not have party plates or the interlock device. When she says that she is willing to help normal people like me she means it. Linda's team wrote a tailored suppression motion that resulted in the prosecution offering me a plea. She takes great pride in personalizing each and every case... to obtain the best results. I am happy that I hired her as my attorney and would recommend her to any and everyone that wants the best representative they can getread more
Can't say enough about Miss Malek and her staff! She is compassionate, down to earth, open and honest. Her staff kept me informed during the entire process; sending me reminders the day before appearances and keeping me updated on all changes without me having to ask or seek out information. She is very proactive, maintains great relationships with court personnel, and truly is a lawyer that cares about you! If you want a lawyer who will treat you like family, be attentive to your individual... needs, and be a Grizzly Bear defending her cubs in the courtroom - Linda is the lawyer for you!read more
When I first walked into Linda's office, I was not only facing jail time, but was at risk of losing primary custody of my children for said "offense". The issue, although something viewed as being very minor outside of court, was being made into something very serious in court. The lawyers I had before not only helped get me into the situation by not properly representing me, but they also did not guide me or give me the correct advice that would have avoided this situation altogether. From... the very beginning of hiring Linda, she was extremely direct and told me exactly what needed to be done. She broke down all of the mistakes made in the previous situation and how we were going to move forward to get this rectified. She stepped into the courtroom and truly saved me from this situation. I walked in thinking I could go to jail and lose everything to leaving the courtroom to go back to my normal, everyday life like nothing happened. She is extremely well-respected inside and outside of the courtroom for the fact that she is well-versed in law and very straight forward and honest. She is available at all times when you need advice or run into an issue and will help you just because. It is definitely not just about the money with her, like I have found with previous lawyers. I wasted tens of thousands on legal fees and got no where before finding her. She actually cares and wants the best for people, whether you want to hear her advice or not, she knows what she is talking about and will help get you to where you want and need to be. I hope to never be in this situation ever again, but if I or any friend/family member ever is, we won't be calling anyone but Linda as long as she is around. She is the REAL deal and I am so grateful for all of her help!read more
I was dealing with a very difficult case and was fearing the worst. Linda assured me I would be fine and I didn’t need to worry. She left no stone unturned while looking into my case. The result was better than I could have imagined and I came out on top. She truly cares about her clients and is not afraid to fight for them. She is very professional and her staff is amazing. I would recommend her to anyone in need or anyone who thinks all hope is lost. With Linda there is always a light... at the end of the tunnel.read more
