Growing up, hard work was a cornerstone of Ahmad's family. His grandmother started from humble beginnings in the Mississippi delta, then built for herself a life and legacy respected by people all over the state, all of it due to determination and drive. Today as a lawyer, Ahmad emulates his grandmother's spirit and values by facing each challenge of the law head on, recognizing that challenges only foster growth and success. As a firm subscriber to the notion that there are no shortcuts to greatness, Ahmad believes your effort is the one variable you can always control in any situation, so clients will find that Ahmad's effort and tenacity are never lacking when working as a representative for their business. Before attending law school, Ahmad worked for a family insurance agency where he learned the importance of establishing personal relationships with clients and being accountable for the trust they have in you as their advocate. Clients can expect this compassion from Ahmad along with a resilient desire to succeed. Ultimately, Ahmad understands that the law is a powerful tool, and he wants nothing more than to bring justice and truth to the issues that shape our society. Clients can rest easy knowing that Ahmad will stop at nothing to achieve his goal: the success and peace of mind of each client that comes through his door.
