Selected as one of New Mexico's Best Lawyers for DWI
Prior to founding Rasheed & Associates, P.C., lead attorney Ousama "Sam" Rasheed served as an assistant district attorney in Bernalillo County. During his tenure as assistant D.A., he handled felonies and misdemeanors and up to 100 DWI cases per week. As a former prosecutor, he understands exactly how the prosecution builds their case against you - and how to identify and use the holes in that case to your advantage. His skill as an Albuquerque DWI lawyer is recognized throughout the state and he is regularly called upon as a leader and resource in this area of law.
For the past 11 years, Attorney Rasheed has coordinated and presented at the annual DWI seminar for the New Mexico Criminal Defense Lawyers Association (NMCDLA). He also presents at other continuing legal education seminars for the New Mexico legal community, including multiple training sessions for the public defender's office and at the 2005 new magistrate judge training sponsored by the New Mexico Judicial Education Center. Mr. Rasheed has been called upon to testify before the New Mexico state legislature regarding DWI issues on behalf of the NMCDLA and does so to protect all New Mexico drivers from the implementation of excessively harsh DWI and criminal laws.
