Nafiz knows what it takes to get the best possible outcome for your case. If he can’t help you, he will refer you to someone who can.

Shari Sukaram decided to work in litigation as a young girl. The oldest of four children born to a teenage mother and immigrant father, she quickly learned responsibility and the need to be a leader and an advocate for others. From a young age, many close to her were entangled in the legal system. These experiences led her to become a defense attorney, dedicating her career to protecting and fighting for the rights of others.
Prior to establishing Ahmed & Sukaram, she 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 and worked as an intern for the San Diego Unified School District Office of the General Counsel.
