I was born and raised in Pawtucket, RI. My dad, Edward Ameen, was a well-liked and respected Pawtucket business man for over 50 years, owning and operating an insurance agency and a tax and accounting practice. Before attending law school, I worked in my dad’s business for a few years and what I learned about insurance and taxation has come in handy in my legal practice. My mom, Helen Ameen, was a homemaker whose greatest treasure in life has been her children.
I graduated from St. Raphael Academy in 1970, from URI in 1974, and from the University Of Miami School Of Law in 1979. I began working with Attorney Moses Kando in 1979, but he shortly thereafter was appointed a Worker's Compensation Court judge, and I have been a solo practitioner ever since.
I have been married since 1976 to Mary Dalton, who was also raised in Pawtucket and who has been a dedicated wife and mother. We have two children, Justin and Hannah, and I greatly enjoyed coaching them in youth sports – soccer, baseball and basketball – during their childhood. Mary’s parents were Ed and Fran Dalton, both born and raised in Pawtucket and much liked in the community.
In addition to dedicating a great deal of my time and attention to my family and my legal profession, I have for many years had a strong attraction to spirituality and meditation, and it is always a pleasure for me to meet and talk with people who are also interested in the meaning of life and spirituality. My aspiration for being a spiritual person gives me a positive outlook on life and high ethical standards which I every day strive and struggle to attain, including striving for excellence in my legal profession and in developing good, long-lasting, trusted and respectful relationships with my clients.
Over the past thirty years I have concentrated in the following areas of the law, have gained the needed experience and knowledge to provide excellent legal services for my many clients and have gained their trust and confidence. If you have the need for legal services in any of the following areas of the law, please give me a call and I will be happy to offer you a free consultation.
