LIVONIA, MICH. – Criminal Justice Alumna Zeina Hamadeh recently was hired as an attorney at Collins Einhorn Farrell PC. Her practice focuses on defense litigation for the firm's general and automotive liability practice group. Hamadeh graduated summa cum laude in 2016, and went on to Cooley Law School, where she graduated magna cum laude in 2021. She credits her success to Madonna University and the criminal justice program for creating a dynamic learning environment. 

"Professor Tara Kane was phenomenal and extremely motivating," said Hamadeh. "She made the class enjoyable while providing information that was clear and concise. She is passionate about her job and I was extremely lucky to have her as a professor." 

Hamadeh initially pursued an interest in civil law, however after taking a Madonna criminal justice course, taught by a prosecutor, she found she thoroughly loved it. "It came so natural to me, and I knew law was the path for me." Her motivation stems not only from a passion for justice but also a desire to be a voice for the voiceless. 

For those wanting to enter into the legal field, she offered this advice, "Don't give up. It is not an easy road, but it is doable as long as you are dedicated. Use your resources and don't be afraid to ask for help, because there are good people in this world who want to help. Most of all, have confidence in yourself."
