Amani Husein

Associate / Houston

P: 346-561-0147

Amani Husein is a member of the firm’s Defense Base Act practice group. She traces her desire to practice law back to her childhood. Her father was a business owner and Amani saw firsthand how opaque the law could sometimes be for those in his position. She wanted to make the law more accessible so that those with businesses of their own could reap the full rewards.

Since graduating from SMU Dedman School of Law, Amani has had the opportunity to gain experience in several different areas. These include commercial, real estate, and employment-related matters. She’s negotiated and drafted agreements in these areas, such as commercial leases, asset purchases, and contracts. She’s also advised clients toward best practices as they relate to corporate law, regulation, and compliance.

One of Amani’s main strengths is her ability to view her clients’ issues from all angles and devise creative and innovative ways of resolving them. She’s meticulous in her organization and planning, as well as a proficient writer, ensuring that all contingencies are planned for and those she represents aren’t facing any unexpected surprises.

Outside the office, Amani enjoys cooking and baking. She’s also an avid reader. A newly minted Texan, she also enjoys exploring Houston and all it has to offer.
