Attorney Amer S. Hakim is the founder of Hakim, Toma & Yaldoo, P.C. He has extensive experience in many areas of personal injury law, including automobile accidents, dog bites, and slip-and-fall cases. Amer began his legal career in 1998 with an automobile accident injury firm, then started his own firm in 2004, which evolved to what is now known as Hakim, Toma & Yaldoo. He has served as a trial lawyer and no-fault automobile accident attorney his entire legal career.
Amer is a litigator at heart. Whether he is earning a million-dollar judgment or working pro bono to protect the rights of an impoverished defendant, he is determined, dedicated, and relentless in the pursuit of justice for his clients. Recently, Amer successfully settled a case against the United States Government for injuries his unarmed client sustained after being shot by a DEA Agent during the execution of a search warrant. Another client, injured in a 2009 automobile accident, contacted Amer in 2018 after her auto insurance company denied ongoing coverage and stopped paying medical benefits she was entitled to. Amer prevailed on the client’s behalf, with a settlement that calls for the insurance company to pay the client benefits through a set monthly stipend for the remainder of her life.
A graduate of Thomas M. Cooley Law School, Amer has been a licensed attorney in Michigan since 2003 and licensed in the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Michigan since 2004. In addition, Amer was admitted to the Macomb County Bar Association in 2004 and is a member of the Michigan Association of Justice.
