    Nabiel C Ahmed, is the owner and attorney of a solo law practice out of the San Francisco East Bay, mainly representing the rights of the criminally accused in Bay Area courtrooms.  While defending his clients, Mr. Ahmed gained notoriety for staunchly defending their constitutional and statutory rights all the way through jury trial if necessary.  Mr. Ahmed’s clients and cases have received attention locally, nationally, and world-wide.  No case has proven to be too big or too small for Mr. Ahmed to handle.  
     https://www.eastbaylawpractice.com/
    Recently, Mr. Ahmed’s representation helped dismiss charges against a defendant facing capital punishment for the crimes he allegedly committed.  In addition to practicing criminal law, Mr. Ahmed has continued to expand his practice into areas of law affecting the lives of his clients in other contexts.  For example, Mr. Ahmed’s client’s can now seek his advice and representation on matters such as restraining orders, dissolutions, breach of contract, fraud, and First Amendment issues. 
     
    Recognizing that every case is different, and every client presents their own unique challenges, Mr. Ahmed continues to pursue his passion of learning about people and the law.  Many of Mr. Ahmed’s clients choose his services when their case requires litigation, and the opposing side has already retained legal representation of the highest caliber.  After litigating cases against attorneys of all skill levels, Mr. Ahmed submits that you can count him amongst the best.

    Ben Bartlett - Alameda County Board of Supervisors Candidate / Berkeley City Council

    lovethylawyer.com

    Ben Bartlett

    https://www.ben2024.vote/
     “Everyone deserves to feel safe. Every family deserves a home. Every person deserves to age with dignity. Everyone is welcome and included.”
    These principles guide my life and have led me to public service. My story is that of delivering results for our community, imagining a better tomorrow, and seeing it through.
    I'm Ben Bartlett. I’m an environmental attorney, husband, and father, and for the past seven years, I’ve served as a Berkeley City Councilmember. 
    My track record speaks for itself: I’ve authored landmark legislation creating more than 1,000 affordable homes, expanding paid family leave, and establishing a comprehensive wildfire prevention plan. My office created a groundbreaking civilian response team for mental health crises, enabling law enforcement to focus on solving and preventing serious crimes. 
    My leadership secured a $1,000,000 grant for public safety. I’ll make sure Alameda County gets every dollar available from the state and federal government to address our most pressing challenges.
    While the rest of Alameda County saw a 22% increase in homelessness, Berkeley saw a 5% decrease. As a father, I’m committed to ending child homelessness in Alameda County.
    I’m running for Alameda County Supervisor, because all that I’ve learned and accomplished has prepared me for this moment – to work for you. So vote for me, Ben Bartlett, for Alameda County Supervisor. I’m ready to be your advocate and champion, and I ask for your vote by March 5th.
    -Ben Bartlett
