Christian Attorney: Have Faith in Your LawyerYour religious beliefs color all your major decisions - choose a Christian attorney who shares your values.
Anyone who’s heard a lawyer joke knows personal injury attorneys don’t have the best reputations. These negative stereotypes—along with the fear of being perceived as grasping, greedy or dishonest—may prevent victims of negligence from seeking the damages to which they’re entitled. Especially for individuals who possess a strong faith, it may seem easier to bear the burden alone, trusting that things will work out in the end.
However, filing a personal injury case does not have to mean compromising your spiritual principles—especially when you hire a Christian attorney who shares your values. Ramez Shamieh considers himself fortunate for having experienced a Christian upbringing. When asked about religion’s role in his life, his answer is simple: “It is my foundation.”
The Making of a Christian Attorney
Born to Greek Orthodox parents who hailed from the Holy Land—his mother is from Jerusalem and his father is from Tel Aviv—Shamieh grew up attending Good Shepherd Episcopal Church in Lake Charles, Louisiana. His faith was a factor in his decision to attend Southern Methodist University, a private university committed to its Methodist heritage. As a student in 1999, Shamieh joined Highland Park United Methodist Church, where he remains an active member to this day.
Shamieh says his Christian upbringing gives him a sense of inner guidance and a strong work ethic. He cites Colossians 3:23 as a favorite verse: Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.
“Honest, hard work is something God seeks from all of us,” Shamieh explains. “God’s words tell us that working hard, with faith in mind, can lead us to the great things he has planned for us.”
As a Christian attorney, Shamieh lives this verse by fighting hard for his clients, but that isn’t the only way his faith finds expression in his actions.
“Religion has an important role in my life as far as what values to uphold: honesty, integrity, trying to do the right thing. It’s also about helping others who can’t help themselves. I’m in a position as an attorney to help people who are injured and don’t have health insurance. I can help them find providers and get fair settlements for their injuries.”Ramez Shamieh
