Attorney Ibrahim J. Awad decided to become an attorney long before law school. As a senior in High School, Mr. Awad and his team won the Regional Championship in Mock Trial, Dalton High School's first in over 13 years. After graduating near the top of his class, he attended Dalton State College in his home town and began working at the District Attorney's Office in Whitfield County.
Mr. Awad helped prosecute over 100 felony cases, including over a dozen child molestation jury trials, and one murder trial (while still an undergraduate). After attaining his Associate's Degree in English from Dalton State College, Mr. Awad transferred to Kennesaw State University to receive a Bachelor's Degree in English, graduating summa cum laude.
He then attended Georgia State College of Law, and while there, he furthered his real-life legal experience by interning at the Dekalb County Solicitor General's Office, working with the Special Victims Unit as well as other Trial Attorneys. As a member of the Student Trial Lawyers Association, Mr. Awad competed in legal competitions in Buffalo, New York and Memphis, Tennessee. In his third year of law school, Mr. Awad interned at a private criminal defense firm and began defending clients with minor traffic citations to felony murder.
Upon graduating Law School and passing the bar on his first attempt, Mr. Awad's love for the courtroom led him to open up his own law firm. In his eyes, everyone has the right to be represented in a trustworthy and honorable fashion. While working with the government and seeing many injustices firsthand, Mr. Awad decided to protect those who have fallen victim to the system and help those who are willing to help themselves by affording them a "moment of justice." Mr. Awad specializes in criminal defense, and he has successfully represented clients charged with minor traffic offenses to felony drug offenses. He also specializes in personal injury law and has obtained great results for his clients injured in car and trucking accidents.
Though the law is his passion, it was not his first. In his free time, Mr. Awad loves practicing Martial Arts and competes in tournaments regularly. Mr. Awad has won countless competitions and has fought in over 250 tournaments all over the Southeast. He also loves visiting his parents and his five younger siblings. Most of all, Mr. Awad loves spending time with his family: his precious, daughter, Jenna, his rambunctious son, Jamal, and his beautiful wife, Rawan, who has an uncontrollable love for kittens.
