Attorney and counselor at law

Athill Muhammad

I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, where I graduated from Edward R. Murrow High School. Furthering my education took me to The Lincoln University, the premier Historically Black College, in Chester County, Pennsylvania, where I earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science. I then entered the graduate program at the University of the District of Columbia, Washington, DC, in the discipline of Urban Policy. 

My lifelong dream was to become an attorney, and in December 2001, proudly earned the Doctorate of Juris Prudence from Texas Southern University’s Thurgood Marshall School of Law. 

Since licensing, I have devoted my law practice in the endeavors of Discrimination, Civil Rights, and the representation of persons accused of crimes.  I am licensed in State of Texas and in the Federal Court system.  I have tried and been involved in litigation involving Federal death penalty cases, police misconduct and civil rights violations, discrimination, and represented persons across the State of Texas accused of crimes and administrative violations.

I am a devoted member of the Nation of Islam, studying under the teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad as now taught by the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, and am a prominent staff member of the Nation of Islam’s Office of General Counsel.

My love and devotion to the practice of law is credited to the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, the Honorable Craig A. Washington, and my proud West Indian heritage. None of my successes, now or in the future, would be possible were it not for my faith and belief in Allah, to whom all praises are forever due.

My goal is assisting you with your search for justice.
