Resilience and dedication are crucial qualities for a litigator to have. For Issa Fawaz, these qualities already characterized him long before he entered law school. After completing his bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice and Corrections at the University of Michigan — Dearborn, he applied for Law School at Michigan State University College of Law. Not long after, however, he received notice that his admission to MSU Law had been denied.
With his unwavering determination, he attempted to appeal his admission status. He went to work and gathered everything he needed for his appeal. This included retaking the LSAT, improving his score, and raising his GPA in his final year of undergraduate studies. He also reached into his professional network, connecting and reconnecting with the right people to help him with his situation. He was told that there was only a 5% chance that he would succeed in appealing his way into a big 10 law school. But his efforts, persistence, and abilities paid off. His appeal was successful and he was accepted to MSU Law just days before the classes started.
Even as an undergraduate student, Fawaz spent much of his time shadowing judges in their courtrooms. Spectating trial after trial allowed him to fully grasp different litigation techniques and strategies. During his time at MSU Law, Fawaz leaned on internships to gain industry experience and practice his skills. His legal education further honed his networking abilities. He realized that finding the right people and growing together with them is an important part of success not only as an attorney but also as a person. After taking the bar, he worked as a clerk and then as an attorney for a high volume personal injury firm. While he was there, he confirmed his unwavering passion for helping injury victims and that this was what he was devoted to set out to do.
At the age of 25, Fawaz has gained a wealth of knowledge and experience through court experience as a student and attorney, handled numerous cases that aggregate to millions of dollars, and has now gone off on his own and started his own firm. He is the founding partner at Issa Fawaz Law, PLC. Fawaz stated, “I’ve honestly just been doing whatever I can to be the person I want to be – if you don’t take the risks, you can’t create a future.”
Fawaz now uses the same qualities and abilities that helped him surpass seemingly insurmountable hurdles to help other people in need of legal services. He wants to serve his community using his experience with pressing on and finding himself in the position that he always imagined himself in. Car accident victims or people involved in personal injury, business disputes, and commercial litigation will greatly benefit from his unrivaled ambition, determination, and networking skills. He is passionate about putting people in the place that they need to be in a way that’s more personable than the services offered by any bigger corporate structured firms.
