Prominent Houston attorney Ali Mokaram of Mokaram & Associates, P.C., has consistently proven himself to be a dedicated and tenacious litigator in the courtroom, but what many people do not know is that he is equally committed to making sure to support his community. As a respected personal injury lawyer, Ali Mokaram knows that focusing on people is what matters most, and there is no better way to do so than supporting the community at large. For the past four years, one of Ali’s favorite groups to support is the Lamar Consolidated High School Band.
Lamar Consolidated High School, located in Rosenberg, Texas, serves the city of Rosenberg, Kendleton, and parts of Fort Bend County. Like most high schools in Texas, it houses students in grades 9-12. There are about 1,600 students enrolled at LCHS. The “Mighty Mustang Band” was founded in 1948, and the program “dedicates itself to providing superior musical instruction within the context of a positive personal experience.” It is because of this type of positive experience that inspired Houston lawyer Ali Mokaram as well as encouraged his commitment to the program. Studying music gives students extensive benefits. It teaches children discipline, teamwork, empathy, and motor skills. It has been shown to enhance kids’ cognitive abilities and helps them learn creative thinking. Additionally it gives them opportunities to express themselves that they may not have otherwise had. Ali Mokaram is proud to help keep music education and all the benefits it provides in schools.
Ali’s contributions to the LCHS band included donations to the color guard, which helped the guard purchase supplies like flag silks and props for their shows. In 2015, the LCHS band participated in the Chicago St. Patrick’s Day Parade and played at Symphony Hall, and Ali Mokaram’s contributions went directly to facilitating that trip for the students.
When it comes to supporting the community, Ali Mokaram understands that the students in our local high schools are the leaders of the future, and supporting them in positive endeavors like marching band and color guard is an important effort. By providing support to these groups, students can enjoy the experiences and rewards that come from this extracurricular activity.
