The Master Mind Behind Law Street
As a first generation American, Abraham Fattah was born and raised on the north side of Chicago (Roscoe Village to be exact). In 2004, Abe graduated with his Bachelor’s of Science in Accountancy from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. After graduation, Abe launched several successful businesses and worked in the private sector, where he used his unmatched passion and skills to obtain a whopping $363,000 tax incentive from the City of Chicago and Cook County (I guess his crystal ball had already hinted Law Street in his future).
Abraham Fattah is a man with a mission, one to help transform the typical experience of working with lawyers.
In 2010 Abraham Fattah began his journey at the University of Michigan Law School. Despite the endless challenges, sleepless nights and addiction to espresso, Abe took in an astounding amount of experience during his Michigan Law career. He initially began working as a student attorney on the Michigan Unemployment Insurance project, and then landed a spot as an associate editor for Michigan Journal of International law.
During his summer breaks, Abraham returned home and split his summers working as a judicial extern for the Honorable Arlander Keyes at the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois and as a law clerk for the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office. During Abraham's time at the State’s Attorney’s Office he worked in the Special Prosecutions Bureau (Gang Crimes), where he prosecuted cases under the direct supervision of Assistant State’s Attorneys and aided in several murder trials.
Given Abraham's level of experience, knowledge, skills, and professionalism, it didn’t take long before he received an offer to join the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office as an Assistant State’s Attorney. After obtaining his Juris Doctor from the University of Michigan Law School, where he graduated cum laude, Abe was faced with a number of intriguing career choices. However, Abe believed his passion to help others is best met if he launched his own firm, a firm that does business differently, a firm that listens and respects its clients.
