About me

If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality. - Desmond Tutu

  • Amanda Lee Morin

    I first met Attorney Awad in law school. He stood out because he always wore a suit, possessed a superior attitude, and displayed a true desire for knowledge. His vigor for learning and devotion to service has only grown since we were sworn in together. I frequently refer clients to him for criminal defense representation. I endorse him without reservation.
