Personalized Assistance After a Michigan Accident
Detroit is home to one of the largest Arab American communities in the
United States. People of Arabic descent from Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, Yemen
and other countries enrich Detroit’s cultural fabric. In fact, Arab
Americans and people from the Middle East represent such a significant
portion of the population that the Arab American National Museum is located
in Dearborn, Michigan.
At Goodman Acker, P.C., we are proud to serve the legal needs of individuals
and families of diverse backgrounds throughout the Detroit area, including
Chaldean-Americans and their families.
Multilingual Attorneys Serving You and Your Family
Our experienced legal team at Goodman Acker, P.C. includes two attorneys
of Middle Eastern descent, Ronita Bahri and Johnny Hamood.
Johnny Hamood, who was born and raised in Dearborn, received his Juris
Doctorate from Wayne State University and served as president of the Middle
Eastern Law Student Association. He handles civil and personal injury
litigation and is an active member of the Arab American Bar Association.
Attorney Ronita Bahri joined our legal team in 2015, bringing with her
a unique understanding of Chaldean-American culture and her own diverse
background. Attorney Bahri is a Chaldean-American who immigrated as a
child with her family to the Detroit area from Iraq. Bahri graduated with
honors from Wayne State University and received her Juris Doctor from
the University of San Francisco School of Law. She speaks Arabic, Aramaic,
and English and is proud to serve her local and native communities.
According to Michigan Public Radio, Arab immigrants started coming to Michigan
in the late 19th century and the numbers increased in the 20th century as Detroit’s automotive industry grew. Conflicts and wars
in the Middle East in the late 20th and early 21st centuries drove new waves of immigration to Warren, Sterling Heights,
and adjacent communities in Detroit’s Macomb County suburbs. The
Michigan Health Department estimates there are between 409,000 and 490,000
Arab Americans in Michigan, according to Arab America.
Detroit has the country’s largest community of Chaldean-Americans,
with an estimated population of 121,000, according to the Chaldean American
Chamber of Commerce. We are honored to have Attorney Bahri on our team
to help serve our Middle Eastern neighbors. If you have been injured in
any type of accident, call Goodman Acker, P.C.
