Zarinah J. Muhammad, Esq.

Zarinah Muhammad was born in Chicago but has lived in Las Vegas nearly all of her life. She obtained her bachelor’s degree in Secondary Education from the University of Nevada Las Vegas in 2005 and immediately began working as a tenth-grade English teacher at Basic High School in Henderson where she has worked for eight years prior to entering the field of law.  Ms. Muhammad went on to get her master’s degree in Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL) and began teaching English language classes as an adjunct instructor at the Community College of Southern Nevada.

In 2012, Ms. Muhammad obtained her Juris Doctorate from the Boyd School of Law.  While attending Boyd, Ms. Muhammad participated in a community service legal program where she co-taught legal education classes on how to obtain a divorce in Nevada.  This experience provided Ms. Muhammad with a deeper desire to provide pro bono legal service, and she quickly became involved in the Partners in Pro Bono program and assisted two attorneys with pro bono divorce cases.  In addition to community service and pro bono work, Ms. Muhammad competed in mock trial, client counseling, and mediation competitions.  She also served as an extern for the US Attorney’s Office where she assisted federal prosecutors in trial preparation and also made appearances at detention hearings.

Since obtaining a position at Black & LoBello, Ms. Muhammad has practiced primarily in the area of family law working on complex divorces, child custody, and relocation cases.

Outside of practicing law, Ms. Muhammad is a dedicated mother, children’s book author, and a musician.
