AZA Attorneys Amir Alavi, Megan Bibb Featured in National Media Profile
February 11, 2013
HOUSTON – Two lawyers from the Houston litigation boutique Ahmad, Zavitsanos, Anaipakos, Alavi & Mensing P.C. are featured in extensive profiles about their legal careers and interests on the popular legal web site LawCrossing.com.
Firm partner Amir Alavi and associate Megan Bibb are profiled in the article “Ahmad, Zavitsanos, Anaipakos, Alavi and Mensing – Amir H. Alavi and Megan L. Bibb are Two Fearless Attorneys,” which is featured in LawCrossing’s “Law Job Stars” profile series.
In a preview of both articles, LawCrossing notes that AZA’s opponents “know they are up against formidable lawyers who not only have courtroom experience, but also can easily influence settlements.”
Mr. Alavi says in the profile: “I consider myself a trial lawyer. That’s why I practice in so many industries. If you are a smart trial lawyer, you can handle any area of practice.”
He also talks about how litigation “is in a huge transition, which is very positive . . . clients are viewing cases differently and are not going to pay attorneys what they used to for certain tasks such as reviewing documents . . . clients want to see experienced lawyers do what they need to do to litigate a case.”
The profile of Mr. Alavi notes his pursuits outside the law, including his longtime love for fine wines and his ownership position in a wine company. If he weren’t happy as a lawyer, he’d run a tasting room, he says.
Ms. Bibb says in her profile that she became a lawyer because of her love of writing, and being an attorney allows her “to constantly learn about new areas of the law and different types of businesses with each new case,” although she admits to an affinity for oil and gas litigation. Aside from her legal work, Ms. Bibb notes her musical hobby, saying she’d likely be a music professor if she weren’t a lawyer.
