- Salim's History
- Salim's Work
Salim’s background as a litigation attorney of over 10 years is diverse, and through as much, he understands that legal issues and disputes affect individuals and their families in numerous and different ways and, potentially, on a daily basis. As such, he has developed a practice that is focused on employing empathy, a firm handle on the law and facts, and passionate advocacy.
These are not just words. Salim goes to work every day with a very practical, useful, and demonstrable skill set in developing creative strategies and solutions to resolve his clients’ legal issues and disputes. To him, that means he considers, addresses, and balances traditional factors (such as the law, facts, and economics at play) and non-traditional factors (such as the family dynamics and emotions involved).
Salim wants his clients to have no doubts that he and our team are here for them and will treat each client as a respected individual, not just another case or file. He strives to be the attorney he would want for his own family and friends – honest, prepared, efficient, and tough.
Salim has been selected as a Super Lawyers Rising Star in Estate and Trust Litigation since 2018 and is a current board member of and chair for the Estate Planning, Probate & Trust Section of theMaricopa County Bar Association. He is also a graduate of the 2018-2019 Bar Leadership Institute, which is a selective program offered by the State Bar of Arizona designed to train the next generation of Bar members and community leaders to benefit the diverse communities in which they work, live and serve.
When he’s not working, Salim is spending time with his family, staying active, reading, listening to/playing music, watching/talking about baseball, and quoting movie lines from memory (e.g., “Well, perhaps the laws of physics cease to exist on your stove!”)
Salim was born in New York, raised in Phoenix, Arizona, and graduated from Arizona State University magna cum laude in 2007 with a bachelor’s degree in Justice Studies.
Following undergraduate school, Salim attended the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University and graduated in 2011. As a law student, Salim co-created the Law Journal for Social Justice, which is the first student-run and created law journal at Arizona State University.
He also held a judicial externship with Hon. Patricia Orozco (ret.) with the Arizona Court of Appeals, Division One, and mediated legal disputes raised in the Maricopa County Superior Court system following intensive mediation training as part of the nationally recognized Lodestar Dispute Resolution Program.
