Black Attorneys, Lawyers & Legal Professionals


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.

Given this information, we felt it fitting to acknowledge some of the  Black Attorneys, Lawyers, and Legal professionals who are the best in their field.

  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.

  19. Hello, I am looking for Attorney for a Lawsuit against The Allegheny Health Network for a discrimination case. I was in an automobile accident and was hit from behind, I passed out for a few mins, the police call for an ambulance and I was transported to the Allegheny Health Network where I was seen and then released after about 3 and a half hours. The bad news is at the time of my release I was still light-headed and not stable upon walking and had severe back pain. After the accident, I was immediately transported to the emergency room at Allegheny Health Network. When I was removed from my vehicle my walking cane and wallet were still in my vehicle at the scene of the accident. Because of debilitating arthritis and back surgery, I need a walk-assist ( walker or cane) The cane was left in my vehicle along with my wallet and money. So I had no money or my cane to get back home. I ask the nurse, could they pay for transportation ( cab ) and she said they had no money or funds to pay for a cab, the best they could do is give me bus tickets to get home. So I took the bus tickets and walked to the bus stop around the corner to the bus stop. The nurse told me the bus would be only 10 mins, that was not true it took 40 mins to wait in the cold. On the arrival of the bus as I stepped on the bus, the step was too high and I missed the step and filled forward to the floor and was unconscious for a while ( time of unconscious unknown ) The bus driver told me I was out for a few mins. At this point, an ambulance was called in I was transported back to the same emergency room I just was released from. On my return to the emergency, I refused treatment and was told to leave the hospital at which point I field too weak to walk so they called the hospital security and had me physically remove and put on a park bench outside the hospital in the cold at around 7 am. If an attorney is interested to hear my case please contact me ASAP. thank you.

  30. I am looking for an attorney with knowledge of libel and defamation law. I am seeking advice on articles for a new website/blog and an overview of do’s, don’ts when posting. Preferably, Maryland DC area, but location not imperative.

  31. Is it just me or does it seem like Black people are legally underrepresented PERIOD?! Lots of requests in here, and not much help.

    And, why do attorneys seem to be lacking in the personable arenas … no bedside manners? I’ve been trying to find a Probate attorney for months, they’re all white & rude, and I’m about to lose it. This is an emotional issue for me, but they’re dry as a bone as though I’m hiring an auto mechanic or something. They’re working with people’s lives, not on cars.

    I won’t bother putting my request in here, as there are no Black attorneys in the city I’m trying to find one. I’m sure they are there, but whoever is moderating this thread, they didn’t approve the one I already placed here. Will that happen with this one? Then I end up getting a newsletter, but don’t see my post … SMH. Today’s marketing tactics are obnoxious.

  32. Currently looking for a lawyer for criminal defense in the state of Florida. Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon.

    My son is being wrongly convicted of selling drugs in Nebraska. He was asked by a so called friend, who placed all the blame on him. When I bailed him out for other minor charges then drove back to court a few weeks laters the charges were amended and now he is facing 20 years to life. There is proof that he was asked by this girl to ride with her, and that these drugs are not his. The public defender that he has stated it is easer for them to just blame him and leave it at that. My son has never been in any series trouble. I really need help he is being railroaded PLEASE ANYONE SOMEONE! HE IS ONLY 26 YEARS OLD and he is really taking this hard to the point that I am concerned about his mental wellbeing. Thank you I greatly appreciate it. By the way we live over a thousand miles from Nebraska and I am currently disabled so this has been extremely hard, I have driven there three times within forty days. It is starting to take a toll on my mental health as well worrying about my son.

  34. I am a black teacher in a protected class who was assaulted by student. After filing a work comp complaint and seeking care for my injury, the administration began bullying, harassing and discriminating against. They fired me after filing a complaint against them for failing to report an active threat, actively blocking me from going to approved work comp appointments and and replaced me with a white teacher. They have marked mile employment file and are defaming my character which hurts my ability to be gainfully employed in my degree field. Good black teachers are needed so our children can thrive! I need help to fight against this. I filed an EEOC complaint and need legal representation to sue the district or seek a settlement. Looking for someone who can practice in Florida even if you are from another state. I’m not originally from Florida so I am finding no black attorney here that are litigating for employees . I hope someone will see this and help, PLEASE!
