Her work in a logic class at the University of St. Thomas made the post-college decision of “what’s next?” for Amran Farah. Already on her way to a degree as a chemistry major/math minor, she switched gears to political science and English.
“Logic was like math, but with words,” she said. “I knew that I needed to go to grad school or law school. No one was hiring poli-sci majors to lead governmental agencies.”
Today, the attorney at Greene Espel spends her time helping business clients solve their problems. She focuses her practice on complex business litigation, construction, and employment investigations.
“I like solving problems,” she said. “There’s always an answer. I love being creative and helping my client get the best outcome.”
What inspires and motivates you?
Beating the other side! And doing it without being difficult or shady. Every case is different, but every client is important.
What’s the best advice you have received?
You can’t afford to be average. Being a Black, Muslim, immigrant woman, I’m always representing a community of people who have been marginalized and overlooked. I can’t afford to fail and disappoint them.
What’s something people don’t know about you?
I like extreme sports. I like thinking I am almost going to die.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
When we can, I like traveling. I like immersing myself in someone else’s world.
