Alveena Saeed’s journey to becoming a lawyer began more than 6,000 miles away. Although born in California, she is Egyptian and lived there with her family for 11 years. There, she saw corruption and inequality, and imagined that, one day, she might serve as a voice for those who didn’t have one. She credits those experiences, along with her parents, who always encouraged her to speak up and to speak her mind, with where she is today.

Alveena is a member of SBSB Eastham’s Defense Base Act group, with previous experience in family law, probate and estate, and civil litigation. Her co-workers often describe her as one of the most self-driven, and best-organized attorneys they’ve ever met. She’s friendly, and someone whose company her clients enjoy being in. It’s that demeanor and attitude that lets them know she’s someone who’s going to fight for them and who has their best interests at heart.

A graduate of the University of Illinois Chicago School of Law, Alveena made the Dean’s list and served on the Law Review. In her free time, she likes to travel, play board games, and volunteer with friends from her Coptic Christian community.
