Sabah Muhammad Attorney
Sabah Muhammad took an unorthodox route on her journey to becoming an attorney. She was raised in Clayton County and graduated from North Clayton High School (Go Eagles!). She graduated from Georgia State University with a degree in Film Production and Creative Writing. While attending GSU she joined People Store and began a successful professional acting career that would take her to New York City.
As a union actor, she worked with many notable names including Johnson & Johnson, Macy’s, Peachtree Battle (Atlanta’s longest running stage play) and Coca-Coal. In addition, she graced the big and small screen in full feature films for BET, Universal and A&E. After working in the entertainment industry with Christopher Reeve, John Slattery and Eva Marcelle Sabah happily accepted the calling to serve her community.
First, she joined AmeriCorps and dedicated 1700 hours of servant leadership to The New Schools of Carver in Atlanta, Georgia. As a college readiness coach, she helped students to allocate over $1,000,000 in scholarships, including helping two students win the coveted Gates Millennium scholarship. Then she went on to The Scholarship Academy and empowered Atlanta Public High School and AUC students to achieve debt-free education. While working in the public-school system and advocating for severe mental illness rights at the Georgia Capital, Sabah realized that she could do more for the voiceless as a lawyer.
Sabah then went to Florida A&M (STRIKE RATTLERS!) College of Law in Orlando, Florida. While in law school she served as; the President of Stonewall (LGBTQA Student’s Association), a member of BLSA (Black Law Student’s Association) and Secretary of ILSA (International Law Student’s Association). She also interned for the Treatment Advocacy Center (TAC), a D.C. non-profit dedicated to eliminating barriers to treatment for people with severe mental illness. While with TAC she learned to lobby legislators at the federal level and draft lifesaving legislation for people with severe mental illness.
Sabah is currently a member of the Georgia Bar Association and GABWA (Georgia Association of Black Women Attorneys). In her free time, she enjoys creative writing, attending church at Impact in East Point, 5k and 10k training, Brunch, being the eldest sister of seven siblings and Aunt to eleven (or more) nieces and nephews.
