As the son of Syrian immigrants, Hasan became intimately aware of the hard work and perseverance it takes to succeed in today’s fast-paced world. Growing up, Hasan played a number of sports that underscored his “team-first” attitude. His growth mindset drives his passion to be a better person, lawyer, and teammate every day.

Breaking barriers and bridging gaps comes naturally to Hasan, a member of the Oakland University Women’s Basketball team (as a practice player) while in undergrad. His role as a point guard, executing the game plan and setting his team up for success, pervades his professions. As your teammate, Hasan will work closely with you to reach your ultimate goal.

Hasan graduated from Wayne State University Law School in 2016, where he was a Presidential Scholar. He was selected to represent Wayne State at the ABA National Moot Court Competition in Boston and the Billings, Exum & Frye National Moot Court Competition in North Carolina. Hasan was also elected as a representative on the Student Board of Governors.

As an Associate at Akeel & Valentine, Hasan continues his fight for justice and considers himself a foot soldier of the Constitution.
