Shari Sukaram decided to go into criminal defense as a young girl. From a young age, many close to her were entangled in the legal system. She quickly learned responsibility, leadership and how to be an advocate for others. These experiences led her to become a defense attorney. Shari has dedicated her career at Ahmed & Sukaram to protecting and fighting for the rights of others. Shari graduated from the University of California San Diego with a B.A. in Political Science and a Minor in Psychology. She received her J.D. from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law in 2007. She served as a certified legal intern for both the District Attorney's Office of Alameda County and the District Attorney's Office for Santa Clara County. When Shari isn't trying to be the best mom and wife in the Universe, you will find her having great adventures, at the beach, traveling, cooking, listening to music, and hanging out with her family and pets.
