- Academic All-Conference Varsity Basketball Player at Suffolk University, 2016-2019
Son of two immigrant parents from Somalia, Jamal was born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts. Growing up, Jamal lived in a tight knit Somalian community and attended the Boston Latin School. Growing up in his community, Jamal noticed that not many people had the opportunity to practice law. At the age of 12, he aspired to become a practicing attorney in and for his community.
After his time at the Boston Latin School Jamal attended and graduated from Suffolk University Cum Laude. During his time there, he played three years of varsity basketball and held an internship with the Boston Public Health Commission in their Legal Department of Chronic Disease Prevention and Controlled Division.
Throughout his journey in the law practice field, Jamal hopes to do something that had rarely been done within his community and be the bridge that could hopefully produce more attorneys within his community.
He specifically chose personal injury law because he wants to help people who have suffered traumatic accidents take back their lives. He wants to be their resource and their legal voice when they are navigating through difficult times.
Working at Diller Law, LLP as a Paralegal, Jamal enjoys gaining insight and working closely with our attorneys who care for each of their clients. He hopes one day he can graduate Law School and become an attorney who also cares deeply for his clients.
In his free time, Jamal enjoys weightlifting, playing basketball, and reading books about powerful historical figures. He also enjoys volunteering at SAYPA (Somali American Youth Parents Association), an organization run by his family that is geared towards promoting social identity among African immigrants.
