As a Houston Native, Fiza Syed witnessed early on the snowball effect poor legal representation can have when she volunteered at local legal justice clinics. Early on, she knew she wanted to pursue a law career. After college graduation, Ms. Syed interned at the Attorney General Child Support Division to better understand family legal matters. She then moved to Dallas to complete law school at SMU Dedman School of Law.
During law school, she interned and clerked at various law firms in order to obtain real-life experience in criminal, family and business law. While in law school, she also worked as a student attorney at the SMU Tax Clinic in order to help working-class individuals and families obtain legal services with tax law. Upon graduation and admittance to the State Bar of Texas, Ms. Syed served as general counsel for several small businesses and real estate companies. During her time as such, she regularly negotiated contracts, purchase sale agreements, and sophisticated settlements. She assisted clients in strategic business and tax planning in order to avoid legal pitfalls in the future.
She believes in passionate advocacy on behalf of her clients and will do her best to obtain the best outcome for her clients. Her practice focuses on criminal and family issues.
