I am licensed to practice in Texas, New Mexico and  Michigan.  


 I obtained Bachelor degrees in Arts and Fine Arts, and a Bachelor of Science, majoring in Sociology, Journalism, and Criminal Justice at Southern Methodist University.  Witnessing firsthand the need to provide legal assistance to various communities, I went on to obtain my Juris Doctorate from SMU.

I began my career in 1990 with the Dallas firm of Hughes & Luce.  After completing the internship with Hughes & Luce, I gained valuable experience working with Hal Monk & Associates, the Texas counsel for the Belli Law Firm of California.  I worked on many large personal injury and celebrity cases, including that of Zsa Zsa Gabor.


I have represented numerous clients since in litigation matters, including business litigation, criminal defense and personal injury.

Colleague I Trust
I have known Fatima Hassan-Salam as a friend and colleague since law school. She has handled cases for my family and friends with grace and great success. I would recommend her to anybody who wants a lawyer who cares about clients and who will do the job correctly and ethically.

Phenomenal, Devoted, Trustworthy Attorney
The best word to describe Attorney Fatima Hassan – PHENOMENAL! I can’t write enough about her professionalism and that of her staff. She has gone above and beyond for me to ensure the injuries I sustained were addressed and still after the case was over she ensured I was not released until my injury was looked at a second time. She worked with my therapy and physicians asking them to lowered their charges to give me the best outcome in my settlement. She drastically cut own her fees as well. I have to say, what she did next was far beyond the call of duty and I am sure you will not believe what she did next. I was still having issues with my injury and she set aside money, HER VERY OWN MONEY, and scheduled an appointment with a specialist. She paid for the evaluation and then when the hospital came up saying that I owed more money, she paid for that too. She paid that out of her own pocket. She is amazing and this is the truth, the very truth even if it sounds like it isn’t. I was recommended to her and I was blessed! I will recommend her to anyone I love because I know she will take great care of them to protect their interest ensuring the insurance companies don’t take advantage of them. She is on your side, she will not leave you, she will inform you all the way and be there to the end. You will leave her as your friend, someone you can truly depend upon. Then, when you write your review of her you will know I was telling the truth!

Great Service
Ms. Hassan and her team provided great service. She is very knowledgeable and knew all the details of the process. Over months she represented me, she kept me informed at every step. Whenever I had a question, she was always available over the phone, and I always got response to my email very quickly, often within an hour. I trust her integrity and expertise.

Awesome Woman
I was in a wreck back in June 2014 and she jumped right on teh case and took care of everything for me. She always kept me updated and answer any questions, promptly. Whether it was email or by phone. I pray I do not get into any more accidents but if so, I will for sure go back to her.

K Ragha former client
After my initial phone call , the office staff took over , helped me with getting the medical attention I needed and, making sure the rental car was done correctly . When it came to repairs on my car, wow they made sure it wasn't done the short cut way . Mrs Salam even reduced her fee to make sure we came out ahead at settlement time . Who does that anymore ?

Good personal injury attorney
This attorney handled my car accident case. She got me a good settlement and got the doctors to cut the bills. She also cut her bill. She treated me right. I will use her again if I need a lawyer.

Honest lawyer
Ms. Hassan Salam represented me in an injury claim. She helped with my car and made sure that the repairs were paid for and that I did not loose money. She handled my injury case and did a good job. She cut her fee to make sure that she did not receive more than I did. I think she is honest and kind.

Great Lawyer
My family has been taking legal problems to Mrs Salam for over 15 years and she has yet to fail to meet our expectations. She has always replied to messages we have left quickly and she has always been willing to set up meetings for any concerns we have had. We have recommended many friends to her and no one has come back with issues. I would recommend her.
