Nabeel graduated from the David A. Clarke School of Law at the University of the District of Columbia, one of the nation’s foremost public interest law schools, and he is admitted to the District of Columbia Bar. Throughout law school, Nabeel served as a student attorney in the David A. Clarke School of Law’s acclaimed Low-Income Housing-Consumer Law Clinic, where he provided representation of low-income residents of the District of Columbia, performing over 500 hours of pro bono legal services, including, but not limited to, successful litigation of rental conditions and human rights acts violations cases in DC Landlord-Tenant Court and DC Superior Court. Nabeel also served as a student attorney in the Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic where he performed over 700 hours of pro bono legal and tax preparation services, including successful filing and negotiation of complicated state and federal tax debts owed to the IRS and/or State Treasury by clinic clients.
In addition to his services as a student attorney to the low-income residents of the District of Columbia, Nabeel worked, both during and after law school, as a senior law clerk to the managing partner of one of northern Virginia’s busiest criminal defense firms, representing hundreds of defendants in a wide-range of cases, including traffic offenses, alcohol-related offenses, drug offenses, violent crimes, theft-related offenses and government forfeitures.
Nabeel’s passion for litigation, specifically criminal defense and immigration, and his love for the District of Columbia led to the creation of Ervin Kibria PLLC with his co-founder Justin Ervin. Nabeel has a deep understanding of his clients needs, fears and concerns when they are charged with a particular offense. Clients choose to be represented by Nabeel because of his ability to calm their fears and provide results through his honesty,compassion and his dedication to their individual matters. He is committed to offering his clients the best possible legal representation in the District. Mr. Kibria is a firm believer that legal representation should be afforded to all who require it and he is determined to offer reasonable prices to help those who seek his representation.
Nabeel will always “go to bat” for his clients and will take a case to trial if that is what is necessary to deliver justice. The attorneys at Ervin KIbria PLLC genuinely share the belief that being prepared and willing to fight for clients is the only way to practice criminal defense.
Outside of the courtroom, Nabeel is an art and music enthusiast, as well as a veracious Washington D.C sports fan. As a University of Miami alumnus, Nabeel bleeds orange and green for his Miami Hurricanes.
