Abdel-Rahman Hamed is a plaintiff-side public interest attorney with a record of success litigating civil rights, constitutional rights, employment discrimination, and complex immigration cases. He is the founder of Hamed Law, a values-based, purpose-driven, national law firm that is committed to empowering people and populations targeted by discrimination.

Discrimination, based on group status such as race/ethnicity, gender, religion, ability, age, or immigration status, perpetuates gross inequities. Targeted populations face insurmountable barriers to healthcare, to housing, to nutrition, to education, to capital, to employment, and to a dignified life.

Mr. Hamed specializes in defending, restoring, and asserting the human dignity, civil rights, constitutional rights, and human rights of people and populations targeted by discrimination. He takes on offenders in government, private industry, and nonprofits.
