Ms. Roohani earned her Juris Doctor from Seattle University in 2019. Before law school, Ms. Roohani earned her undergraduate degree in Political Science from the University of Washington. Being a resident of Seattle for most of her life,    Ms. Roohani always found it important to integrate with the community and enjoy the immersive experience that comes with it.

In her spare time, Ms. Roohani enjoys spending time with her family and friends. From spending time with her energetic niece and nephews, to spending time with her parents, her siblings, her partner, and not to mention her cat Figgy (short for Figaro), Ms. Roohani enjoys the joy and excitement that comes with being with family. Ms. Roohani also enjoys hiking, experiencing the food and drink culture of Central Washington with her partner, and getting lost in a good book. 

About Ms. Roohani
 
Professional Experience

Prior to joining Meyer, Fluegge & Tenney, P.S., Ms. Roohani worked for the Snohomish County Public Defender Association where she managed a high-volume caseload and represented clients facing an array of criminal charges. During her time with the Public Defenders' Office, Ms. Roohani confirmed and wrote trial briefs for dozens of cases set for jury and bench trial, leading to dismissals, acquittals, and appeals. Ms. Roohani argued endlessly to protect her clients' constitutional rights and hold the government accountable. 

 

During her time in law school, Ms. Roohani interned with the King County Department of Public Defense where she researched and wrote legal memoranda on various felony issues including search and seizure, comparability, Sell and competency restoration, and briefed a successful pretrial motion to dismiss under the First Amendment of our United States Constitution. During that time, Ms. Roohani handled calendar positions while preparing her own clients for trial. In her final semester of law school, Ms. Roohani worked with her law school's Youth Advocacy Clinic where she had the exciting experience of assisting in the preparation and representation of a Third Strike client facing life in prison without the possibility of parole on a hearing before the Washington State Clemency and Pardons Board. This hearing resulted in the Governor's office granting her client's petition for clemency.
