THERE WHEN CLIENTS NEED HIM MOST
Ali received his Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from the University of Houston-Downtown. During that time, he was engaged in research and clinical workshops. This experience led Ali to understand the primary barrier to effective counseling and representation is a lack of understanding about the overall process, leading to a lack of trust. Ali enjoys helping clients at every step of the personal injury process, taking proactive measures to break down cases into a step-by-step process to make sure clients understand what is happening along the way. Ali stays in constant contact with clients, so they feel more secure about their cases. Ali is always only a phone call or email away, as he believes effective communication is the key to success. Ali will be there when clients need him.
