Keivan Shahabi (Romero)* was born and raised in El Paso, Texas. He received his Bachelor of Business Administration from the University of Texas at Austin in 2003, where he majored in Finance. He received his Masters with a Concentration in Finance from the University of Illinois in 2005 and his Doctorate of Jurisprudence, with a Business Law Certificate, from the University of Maryland Francis King Carrey School of Law in 2013. While studying at the University of Maryland Mr. Shahabi was a member of the Business Law Society and Latino Law Student Association where he was an officer. Mr. Romero has been licensed to practice in Texas since 2013.
Before his legal career Mr. Shahabi worked for large insurance companies, CNA and Liberty Mutual. After spending five years working for insurance companies he realized he was working against people rather than for them. As an Eagle Scout he was taught to help people and could no longer bear working for companies that seek to disservice people, which created the impetus for going to law school. Using his insurance experience he is able to think like the insurance companies and uses his industry knowledge to help his clients.
Prior to beginning his private legal practice in August of 2016, Mr. Shahabi was an attorney at the prestigious Rad Law Firm in Dallas Texas where he honed his expertise in personal injury case law. Aside from personal injury work Mr. Shahabi has also worked on numerous complex litigation cases included tax cases against the IRS, patent infringement, and construction defect litigation, financial fraud and International Traffic in Arms Regulation cases.
Mr. Shahabi’s practice focuses on personal injury, family law, business law and probate cases but his expertise is in the field of litigation, a true trial lawyer. While he spends most of his time fighting for his clients in court, Mr. Shahabi also serves his clients through his business solutions program where he advises clients on entity formation, operating agreements, and contract drafting.
*Keivan Shahabi (Romero) was born into a Hispanic family who use both his family names. The State Bar of Texas only recognizes his father’s last name and have used their regulations to limit his use of the name “Romero.” You can call him Romero whenever you like.
