    About Ahmad, Zavitsanos, Anaipakos, Alavi & Mensing P.C.
    AZA, or Ahmad, Zavitsanos, Anaipakos, Alavi & Mensing P.C., is foremost a trial firm. Its 50 lawyers have been in a trial most months since 2016, despite courthouse closures because of COVID and Hurricane Harvey. The firm’s courtroom experience, knowledge of what will matter to a jury or judge, and command of trial technology permit its lawyers to do this efficiently. Being trial-ready also strongly influences settlement. Opponents recognize that with more than 225 trials under AZA’s lawyers’ belts, they have confidence in their position and ability to advocate that position. In fact, AZA is often hired on the eve of trial, once it has become clear that the case must be tried.

    Several issues and concerns continue to bring widespread complications in the pre-trial and evidentiary hearing procedures. Adding to these challenges is the imposed shift of standard practices to virtual hearings in aims to curtail the effects of COVID-19.
