Reza Mohamadzadeh


Reza Mohamadzadeh is an Associate with our Firm, where he counsels individuals and entities engaged in land use and environmental disputes. Reza also has experience in tax law and business litigation, and has represented individuals involved in collection actions by the IRS and FTB.

At a young age, when deciding whether he’d one day become a paleontologist or an astronaut, Reza learned of the harms of pesticide use. He swiftly called for the boycott of inorganic grapes among his family and their friends, igniting a lifelong path of environmental and animal stewardship. Reza earned his undergraduate degree in Environmental Studies from the University of California, Santa Cruz, where he helped operate a 45-acre organic farm, played intramural soccer, and interned at the California Department of Fish & Wildlife’s Marine Wildlife Veterinary Care and Research Center. There, he learned of the symbiotic relationship between conservation biology and environmental policy. Law was the natural next step.

Reza obtained his Juris Doctor from Brooklyn Law School, where he interned for a number of public service organizations and judges including U.S. District Court Judge Beverly Reid O’Connell. While in law school, Reza helped revamp the Student Animal Legal Defense Fund and facilitated the growth of the Courtroom Advocates Project – a pro Bono program in which student attorneys represent victims of domestic violence seeking orders of protection. Upon graduating, Reza was twice recognized and awarded for his distinguished leadership and devotion of over 1,000 hours toward pro bono services during his three years in law school. 

In his free time, Reza enjoys camping, woodworking, and rehabilitating plants and wildlife.
