In 2009, Black attorneys represented 1.71% of law firm partners. Today, Black attorneys represent 1.81% of partners.

According to the National Association for Law Placement 2017 Report on Diversity in U.S. Law Firms, “women and minority partners remain fairly dramatically under-represented in U.S. law firms,” with women minorities being the “most dramatically underrepresented group” of all. This is why it’s essential you find the right attorney to represent you in court.

Given this information, we felt it fitting to acknowledge some of individuals who have been recognized by The National Black Lawyers – Top 100 as the best in their field. Check the link for others in your area.

      • You should report him to the administration of the hospital where you received the surgery, the state medical board where he is licensed and your insurance company. If the local police won’t take a complaint from you, report the rape to the state police and the state attorney general’s office. You should contact a lawyer who specializes in medical malpractice or “white Collar” crimes.

  6. Hello. I just received notice less than a week ago that I’m still listed as owner of my property. Over 10 years ago, I yielded it back to my bank, since I could no longer make payments on home equity loan. My home was already paid for, prior to my loan approval. I assumed that the bank took ownership, since that was the consequences for default in the Agreement. Weren’t they required? This notice states delinquent taxes of $23,000 and the Tax Lien Sale on the land was today. The home was demolished some years after I yielded back to bank. If I want my property back, how can I have bank ordered to pay delinquent taxes, since I wasn’t aware that they never took ownership? I have been homeless for some time while trying to recover from the recession. Had I known this, I could’ve been paying the taxes and redeemed it.

I have been in NY getting the medical diagnosis and medical care I would never get from the VA Hospital in Pittsburgh. While I am getting the help and treatment I need, Pittsburgh has used this time to steal my home from me.

    Please help me in finding a real estate attorney who can help me stop this Sheriff Sale. Or call me at 718-869-2954. Everything I own is in that house. They take my home from me then I am homeless.

    thank you for all your help in this matter.
