African American Attorneys in the Atlanta Area

AAAnAtlantalogo.jpg

A lawyer, according to Black's Law Dictionary, is "a person learned in the law; as an attorney, counsel or solicitor; a person who is practicing law."[1] Law is the system of rules of conduct established by the sovereign government of a society to correct wrongs, maintain the stability of political and social authority, and deliver justice. [2] Working as a lawyer involves the practical application of abstract legal theories and knowledge to solve specific individualized problems, or to advance the interests of those who retain (i.e., hire) lawyers to perform legal services.

History of State Sponsored Exclusion of African Americans from practicing law in Georgia

This website was created to provide invitees, customers, and clients with contact information regarding African American Attorneys in Georgia that I am aware of.
 
In 2010, the African American population was about 60% in Atlanta, and 30% in Georgia.  The number of African American Attorneys that have been authorized to help the people of Atlanta specifically, and in Georgia generally, is puny as it is compared to their European American Attorney counterparts.  The purpose of this web site is to create more demand for African American Attorneys.  I hope and belief that any Georgia attorney, or firm, that you hire can and will satisfactorily help you in every step of your legal process.  Every attorney admitted to the State Bar of Georgia should be able to help you, but there is nothing wrong with asking law firms that you consult with, if they hire, have hired, or will hire, African American Attorneys, and if you can have him or her help in your case. 

Black History in America

    If firms in Georgia fail to hire sufficient amounts of African American Attorneys out of law school to meet the public's needs, then it is up to the public to combat this lack of apparent deficit by hiring African American Attorneys directly.  If sufficient numbers of African American Attorneys do not get hired out of law school, then there will be less African American Attorneys to serve our society, move up corporate ladders, and serve as prosecutors, defense counsels, and or legal assistants. If history is any guide, the more African American Attorneys that make it in the legal field, in some measure, ensures that all citizens will be treated fairly, regardless of race, creed, color, sex, disability or national origin.  Collaterally, hiring more African American Attorneys will help the unemployment rate drop for black Americans in our economy.
