Dawood Y. Husseini (1890-1935)

Dawood Husseini was a leading lawyer during a critical historical period and rose quickly to prominence in his practice. Known for his critical thinking, Mr. Husseini became a judge early in his career and held various posts at the courts of Jerusalem, Jaffa, and in Syria. 


Fakhri T. Husseini (1893-1942)

Fakhri Husseini joined the firm in 1924 as a leading and prominent member of the Jerusalem community who spoke fluently six languages, Arabic, English, French, German, Italian and Turkish. Fakhri Husseini was appointed chair of the Lawyers Association in Jerusalem during the Ottoman and British mandate periods, but was removed due to his support of the revolution. He died at an early age in 1942. 


Suleiman D. Husseini (1925-1974)

In 1925, Dawood’s son joined the firm. Although Dawood Husseini’s career ended with an early passing at the age of 45, his son Suleiman continued in the practice, following his footsteps, until 1967, when the turmoil of that period brought the entire practice to a halt. Like his father, he held judicial posts in Palestine, Turkey, and Syria and produced various publications.
