Farsheed Fozouni joined Baron & Budd’s Employment Law Group in 2016 because he felt a strong desire to help ordinary people fight for their hard-earned compensation and to protect workers from unlawful termination without notice. “I love representing industrious people who are the backbone of our country’s prosperity, and that prosperity derives in large part from receiving the proper compensation and continued employment these workers deserve.”
Mr. Fozouni did his undergraduate work at Austin College, where he received a bachelor’s degree in international relations. Though he spent most of his childhood and early college years planning to go to medical school, a sudden change of passion in wanting to advocate for people led him to law school, a decision he has never regretted. Mr. Fozouni received his law degree from the Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law in Texas, where he won awards for his legal research and writing skills, as well as for his advocacy and speaking abilities.
While in law school, Mr. Fozouni served as Executive Editor of the SMU Law Review Association, a position to which he was elected to create and administer the writing competition that would select the next year’s staff editors. In addition to participating in various academic events such as the New York City Bar Association’s National Moot Court Competition, Mr. Fozouni interned for the Honorable Richard Schell of the Eastern District of Texas. This experience convinced him that litigation was the only path forward for his career.
A Dallas native, born and raised, Farsheed Fozouni is a first generation Iranian-American, fluent in Farsi, who is deeply passionate about his cultural roots and heritage. He remains actively engaged in the Iranian-American community and loves to travel. He is proud to join Baron & Budd’s team of dedicated advocates for the rights of workers.
