MEET NABIEL

As a lifelong Bay Area resident, Nabiel C. Ahmed is committed to protecting the rights of his neighbors and community. He's a local boy through-and-through: he earned his B.S. from U.C. Davis, received his law degree from U.C. Hastings, and worked as a deputy public defender for people accused of felony and misdemeanor crimes throughout Northern California. Before starting a private practice, he worked as an appellate advocate for the California Supreme Court.

In short, he has always been a defender of the accused—never a prosecutor. His work has always been devoted to keeping people out of prison and giving them the freedom that comes from factual innocence. He's passionate not only about protecting people's rights in court, but from protecting them from unlawful seizure of their property.

A veteran of the East Bay legal scene, Mr. Ahmed knows the tactics local law enforcement uses on the accused. He knows the tricks of the trade, and he knows how to counter them pound-for-pound. When you need a champion in your corner—not just a lawyer—then Mr. Ahmed is the one call you need to make.
