Ibrahim Saab - As an individual with a developmental disability and a consumer of the Westside Regional Center, I am thrilled to join OCRA as a Clients’ Rights Advocate. It is indeed a privilege to use my professional training not only to address the significant legal issues surrounding developmental disabilities, but also to support a group of individuals with whom I share a deep affinity.
I received my B.A. in English, with high honors, from the University of California, Berkeley in 1999. I remained at Berkeley another three years to earn my Juris Doctorate from Boalt Hall. I served as President of the Boalt Disability Law Society and helped to organize a daylong symposium on cutting edge issues in disability rights law. I also served as a summer law clerk at the Western Law Center for Disability Rights. Since graduation, I have remained on WLCDR’s Young Professionals Board.
Prior to joining OCRA, I was an associate working in the commercial litigation department of a major law firm. I learned a great deal during my tenure at the firm, but I have no doubt that my position at OCRA will prove far more rewarding.
