Muskan Ali represents plaintiffs in complex, life-altering medical and pharmaceutical malpractice claims, equal protection, and due process claims (1983 claims), as well as auto, premises, and product liability claims involving personal injury and wrongful death. She is also experienced in federal claims, including Article 3 of the Persons with Disabilities Civil Rights Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, and the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
Having worked in the law for nearly a decade, Muskan delivers proven skill in case management from start to finish and throughout all phases of development. She serves as a catalyst for keeping even the most difficult cases moving toward resolution while making herself readily available to those she serves. On a personal level, Muskan believes it is a privilege to represent plaintiffs’ rights. She is appreciated for her compassion and ability to set people at ease, and her arguments are grounded in fact and easily understood and persuasive to judges and juries alike.
Early in her career, Muskan was trained by successful leading trial plaintiff attorneys who mentored her throughout her professional development as plaintiff’s counsel. Whether examining legal claims and advocacy in depositions involving medical experts or medical care providers, police officers, or forensic experts, or in motion practice and drafting pleadings, she brings the drive and boundless energy needed to effectively represent individuals facing major catastrophic events. Valued for her legal analysis, thorough preparation, and work ethic, Muskan prides herself in identifying and knowing the facts of her clients’ cases and in anticipating opposing counsels’ positions and talking points.
Before joining the firm, Muskan worked in private practice litigating a heavy caseload of personal injury cases at the federal and state levels and represented clients in other states. One of her career highlights was an internship at Lakeshore Legal Aid representing the indigent and elderly, and where she was the first recipient of the Paula Zimmer Law Scholarship.
Muskan attributes much of her success to working in the service industry since age 14 and continuing to work hard while completing her undergraduate studies and law school. Understanding the world and people around her has shaped her into the best possible advocate for her clients. As plaintiff’s counsel, Muskan gives a voice to those in pain or who have suffered significant loss.
When not practicing law, Muskan enjoys spending time with family and friends, volunteering, reading, traveling, photography, hiking, playing tennis, and biking. Notably, she is fluent in Urdu, Hindi, and Punjabi.
