Featured Case Study

Court Grants Claim for Prisoner in Pro Bono Prisoner Rights Action

A prisoner alleged that he was assaulted by guards and, in the subsequent fallout, was denied a number of his federal constitutional rights. Soham, as second chair, and two other Husch Blackwell associates, represented the Illinois inmate in a civil rights action involving several constitutional claims and more than 20 witnesses. In a difficult week-long jury trial, Soham and the attorneys persuaded the jury to find in favor of their client on one count, before settling two other claims against the state in the client’s favor.

Outside the Office

Soham enjoys reading, hanging out with his dog, hiking and watching stand-up comedy.

An avid fan of Michael Crichton’s sci-fi novel, “Jurassic Park,” as well as mysteries and spy thrillers, Soham often has his nose in a book. To stay active, he enjoys hiking in the summer months in Castlewood State Park in St. Louis County, Missouri, and playing with his pitbull mix dog, Arrow, who he rescued from a local animal shelter.

Soham loves watching stand-up comedy, both live and online, and got up on the stage to perform before attending law school. He believes that having improvised as an amateur comedian still helps him think on his feet as a litigator in the courtroom.
