Muneer Awad started his legal career in Oklahoma where he answered his life’s calling to defend the people, and fight the State. He successfully filed a lawsuit there to block the implementation of a constitutional amendment that would have discriminated against people of faith, jeopardized the rights of parents and their adopted children, and nullified all international business contracts.
After his success in Oklahoma, Muneer worked in New York, NY and Augusta, GA where he fought against abusive policing and prosecutions, and defended people trapped in the criminal court system. He has an impressive track record defending against serious felonies including murder, rape, and child molestations. He also had the benefit of working at the Public Defenders Office where he handled every type of criminal case at every phase of the criminal court process.
Muneer has worked throughout the State of Georgia and is honored to call Marietta his hometown, and the city where he received his greatest honor—Marietta High School Coaches’ Award for Offensive Player of the Year in 2001. However, Muneer will be the first person to tell you that the relationships he has built with other attorneys or judges comes second to the relationship he builds with his clients. Despite numerous awards and recognitions for his courage in taking the fight to the State, his greatest award is the satisfaction of his clients.
Abed Awad, Trial Consultant
Abed serves a unique role as a trial consultant for the Awad Legal Team. He helps our lawyer investigate cases, find and interview witnesses, review and develop theories of defense and client narratives, and most importantly he supports and compliments his brother, and our trial attorney Muneer Awad, as we fight for our clients. Other law firms or law offices may offer support staff, secretaries and intake specialists for their attorneys, but the Awad Legal Team includes a unit that has grown together, worked together, and fought together for over 30 years.
Abed was born in Ponce, Puerto Rico, but grew up with his brother in Marietta, GA where he attended Marietta High School, Southern Polytechnic Institute and the Georgia Institute of Technology. He has extensive experience working in the real world where he has managed and developed successful small businesses in the metro-Atlanta area and worked in New York City with the Founder Institute and other start-up CEO’s in launching websites and mobile apps.
Abed is thrilled to join the Awad Legal Team and excited to continue to do what he and his brother have been doing since their early days on the neighborhood playground–winning.
