Bashar Ahmad / Shareholder

Detailed Practice Description

Bashar Ahmad handles all types of civil litigation matters, with a particular emphasis on business and real estate disputes. He has been the lead associate on a number of large litigation matters, including cases dealing with complex real estate and healthcare issues.

For me, practicing law is about interacting with clients and solving their problems. Sometimes my help is as simple as drafting an email and sometimes it’s going to court and prevailing on a motion for a client. Either way, it’s about the satisfaction of knowing you got a good result for a client.

The Basics

I do general business, bankruptcy and real estate litigation. As part of that, I handle contract disputes, represent lenders/creditors in bankruptcy court and do health care-related litigation.

Delivering for Clients

I’m proud that I’m able to be an important resource to Sacramento’s Arab American community. Because of my fluency in Arabic and being from the Middle East, I’ve been able to help clients who are looking for an Arab-speaking attorney.

When I’m not at work, I’m looking for a soccer game. I participate 2-3 times a week with a rotating group of about 20-30 people in the community.
