Mona strives to add value to and derive value from all of her endeavors. As a tax practitioner, she focuses her practice on estate administration and business planning, both areas of tax law that allow her to be a part of some of the most important moments in a client’s life. It is this desire to make an impact that draws Mona to charitable work and organizations that focus on the needs of children. Mona graduated from the University of Connecticut School of Law in 1997. During her time there she included courses of study that focused on child advocacy and interned with the State of Connecticut Attorney General’s office in the Child Protection Division. Upon graduation she moved away from litigation and towards estate planning but continued to volunteer and donate to organizations with missions that include the protection of vulnerable children. She worked with The National Association to Protect Children (PROTECT), a non-partisan political organization, to help effect legislation that would strengthen Maryland state laws governing the protection of children. She is committed to supporting CHINAR International, an organization that supports the empowerment of orphans and vulnerable children in her husband’s birthplace of Kashmir, India. She is also involved with various projects in her birthplace of Dhaka, Bangladesh spearheaded by her mother and grandmother whether the project is the building of schools for underprivileged youth or installing wells in rural villages. Mona currently practices law part time with the law firm of Ward Chisholm in Bethesda Maryland. She works as the Practice Administrator for Raja M. Din, MD PLLC where her role includes contract negotiations, financial reviews, strategic planning, and all financial aspects of the various businesses and investments affiliated with the practice. In 2010 Mona graduated from Georgetown University’s LL.M. in Taxation program with a certificate in Estate Planning. Although her primary area of study was estate planning and administration, Mona’s interest in non-profit work led her to take several courses in the taxation of non-profits and she looks forward to using her training as she proudly serves on this board.
