Mohammed previously worked as a paralegal at a prominent plaintiff's personal injury firm for several years while attending law school as an evening division law student. Mohammed then began his career as an associate attorney after his admission to the New York State Bar in 2016. Currently he focuses primarily on defending construction injury litigation cases involving the New York State Labor Law. These high exposure cases require him to navigate complex factual scenarios involving Sections 240(1),241(6) and 200. Mohammed has represented owners and general contractors of major construction projects in the five boroughs. His experience as a former plaintiff's attorney offers him unique perspective on construction injury claims, which enables him to vigorously defend the interests of his clients. Mohammed's portfolio of cases includes catastrophic injury claims and multi-million dollar property damage actions. He defends these actions from their inception through conclusion, including mediation, arbitration and appellate practice. Mohammed has successfully moved to dismiss several high exposure cases and negotiated favorable settlements where outright dismissals were not achievable.
Mohammed is guided by the philosophy that the magic is in the work. He leaves no stone unturned in pursuing the most effective defense for his clients. In addition to this tenacious work ethic, Mohammed focuses on forging relationships with each of his clients. Mohammed believes that the most effective defense is achieved when attorney and client are working as one. This approach fosters trust and communication and enables Mohammed to mount the most comprehensive defense available to his clients.
Mohammed earned his law degree from New York Law School in 2016. He graduated from CUNY Hunter College in 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science. Mohammed was admitted to the New York State Bar in 2016.
