Meet Me, Murad Mohammad, Criminal Defense Attorney
As someone who grew up without many advantages, it is not surprising that I believe so strongly in protecting the disadvantaged in our society. I also believe that every individual who stands accused of committing a crime is at a distinct disadvantage in today’s criminal justice system.
And that, in a nutshell, is why I am committed to doing the work that I do.
I hold a bachelor’s degree from the University of Missouri (2002) and a law degree from William Mitchell College of Law (2006).
While in law school, I was honored to receive a Leonard, Street and Deinard Foundation Scholarship and an Albert H. Mansfield Fellowship. I also worked as a law clerk at the Ramsey County Public Defender’s Office for two years during that same period.
Following graduation, I accepted a judicial clerkship position with the Honorable Kathleen Gearin, Assistant Chief Judge in the Second Judicial District. When the clerkship ended, I returned to the Ramsey County Public Defender’s Office where I represented hundreds of clients charged with offenses of every type as an Assistant Public Defender.
Since entering private practice, I have continued to hone my skills as a criminal defense lawyer. I have successfully defended clients from all walks of life against all types of criminal charges, and I have handled numerous high profile cases as well.
Having said all of that, here are just a few more facts I want to highlight:
- The National Trial Lawyers: Top 100 Trial Lawyers (2014)
- Super Lawyers “Rising Star” recognition for criminal defense (2014 and 2015)
- Panel member, Criminal Defense Services, Incorporated, which provides reduced fee legal help to clients who are unable to hire an attorney at full retainer fees.
- Avvo rating of “Superb” (10.0)
- Frequent speaker on criminal law and representation of minority clients
- Author of numerous articles and continuing legal education (CLE) presentations on various topics
You do not have to have a high-profile criminal case to get my best effort to obtain the best possible results on your behalf. This is how I practice law every day.
