Anam Hasan was born in San Jose, California, where she dreamed about pursuing a career where she could be a voice for and serve underprivileged communities. She cared deeply for women’s rights issues, immigrants’ rights, and civil rights of all communities.
She graduated from the University of California, Davis where she received her Bachelors of Arts in Political Science and a Minor in Professional Writing. The skills she gained in undergrad and the degrees with which she had now attached to her name, Anam soon set her sights on law school. As long as Anam can remember, she wanted to advocate for others. Her mother can recount the moment Anam asked her as a six year old what it would take to become a lawyer. Her mother answered that to become an attorney, one needed to read a lot of books. Since then, Anam could always be found reading from a book.
Anam was drawn to the civil rights movement as a kid. Not only was it the power of the people who collectively made change happen for the better, but it was also the attorneys in the room with the legal and practical power to implement the legal changes and preserve the civil rights that many of us enjoy today.
Anam spent most of her early legal career serving underprivileged communities. Anam advocated for immigrants who were survivors of human trafficking and sexual abuse receive safe harbor in the United States by assisting with their immigration status. Anam assisted Americans who had served their jail sentences and were looking to rebuild their lives by helping them to expunge their records for a fresh start. Finally, after passing the California Bar, Anam represented tenants in eviction cases against the power dynamics of large corporate landlords and fought for the housing rights of underprivileged communities as an eviction defense attorney.
The thirst for social justice still lives within Anam and powers her advocacy for her clients today. As an attorney, Anam is in the unique position to advocate for those who cannot advocate for themselves. She is most passionate about working directly with clients and taking what matters most to them to court. She has what one would call a bleeding heart. Because she works day to day of your case, you can always count on her to walk you through your case to achieve the best outcome for you.
Her practice areas include: Trust Administration, Trust Litigation, and Estate Litigation
