Finding a good attorney can be confusing. The prospect becomes even more complex when you specifically want an African-American attorney who specializes in a specific type of law practice. You want someone who understands your specific legal and cultural needs, and there are few resources out there that can help you with this task.
Even if you are able to find some information, you are not always able to find what you really need to know, including details on their experience, educational background and licensing. What sites do exist are often outdated and inaccurate. There are virtually no sites that provide you with personal reviews from previous clients, which are also important.
A particular lawyer could be the sharpest legal mind of the century, but that would mean nothing if the lawyer’s clients aren’t happy with the level of service provided. Unfortunately, it’s next to impossible to find credible, objective and qualitative information regarding an African-American lawyer’s experience, qualification, and level of client satisfaction.

HOW WE DO IT:
AfricanAmericanLawyers.org takes the headache out of finding an African-American lawyer. Our staff digs deep to evaluate attorneys in a comprehensive and thorough manner. Our five-point evaluation process allows us to accurately rate African-American lawyers in every state. AfricanAmericanLawyers.org isn’t an advertising platform for lawyers to buy their way up the rankings.
Our goal is to provide you the qualitative information necessary to help you find the right lawyer for your needs. Naturally, who better to give you real insight into working with the listed African-American Lawyers than the clients who have retained them in the past? We allow REAL clients to write REAL reviews. No fake reviews. No purchased comments. In fact, we screen and verify every review to make sure all comments reflect the true experiences of real clients.
OUR FIVE-POINT EVALUATION SYSTEM:
We want to give you a complete picture of every African-American Lawyer’s strengths and challenges. To facilitate this we evaluate each lawyer to determine how they rank in five important components of quality legal representation:
Proven success can only be measured over time. We go beyond merely looking at the chronological length of a lawyer’s practice–our due diligence measures the totality of their legal experience. Our process looks at how long they have handled certain types of cases, how long they’ve practiced in a particular city or state and any other ancillary experience relevant to their legal expertise.
We also consider the quality of a lawyer’s experience. For example, does the African-American lawyer have experience with culturally-charged legal battles, or experience with high-profile, media-driven cases? Does the attorney have a particular expertise in representing fathers in custody cases?
The result of this evaluation enables us to provide you with an accurate picture of an African-American lawyer’s qualitative experience as well as the length of time they’ve practiced. Academic training in certain types of case law and legal practice only go so far. What is more relevant is how well the African-American lawyer uses that training in the real world to win cases for clients.
Formal academic training is the foundation for every African-American lawyer. The best lawyers have a good balance between a theoretical, educational background and practical experience. Our team digs deep to provide an in-depth analysis of a lawyer’s academic background as an integral component of our Five-Point Evaluation System.
When you consider both education and experience, you have the most important picture of a lawyer’s capabilities and strengths. A holistic evaluation of an African-American lawyer’s educational background starts with the schools he attended. You can’t avoid the fact that some educational institutions are simply better than others.
This reality is self-evident, but we go beyond the merely obvious to evaluate the school’s curriculum, as well as the African-American lawyer’s course of study. A prestigious academic brand name’ is nice, but it’s important to also evaluate the areas of concentration each lawyer focused on in law school, as well the overall academic performance of each lawyer. This could include such details as class rank, participation on Law Review, valuable internships, and other areas of academic success.
Licensing is a more objective component of our Five-Point Evaluation System’ than other areas of analysis but no less important. Our staff verifies that an African-American lawyer has completed the necessary State Bar Exams to practice in a specific state, and that the lawyer is in good standing with the governing authorities in each state. In addition, we look for any sanctions, suspensions, or complaints/disputes filed with oversight groups. We’ll also check for licenses held in other states and report on any problematic issues.
4) SOCIAL TRIGGERS:
Another way to get a qualitative and honest assessment of an African-American lawyer’s practice success and client satisfaction is through social media. Our staff monitors all major social media outlets including Facebook and Twitter. Social media monitoring allows us to evaluate not only how often an African-American lawyer is mentioned in social media, but also the nature of the commentary.
AfricanAmericanLawyers.org provides an accurate account of what is being said about legal professionals, good and bad. This social media ranking is not a substitute for our verified review process, but does provide an additional means of evaluation to measure attorneys/ reputations in the communities they serve.
Above and beyond everything else, it’s crucial that an African-American lawyer has the experience and legal background to deal with your specific needs. Our staff does the work to verify each lawyer’s professional strengths and the services they offer. We’ll determine a lawyer’s experience in Personal Injury, Car Accident, Lawsuit, Criminal Defense, DUI/DWI, Felony, Misdemeanor, Traffic Tickets, Civil Rights, Bankruptcy, Foreclosure, Discrimination, and others.
We’ll give you all of the information you need about the African-American lawyer’s experience working in these areas, as well as their success rate and their perception in the community. Just finding a good lawyer is only part of the task that you face. Equally as important is identifying the lawyers that are the best fit for your particular set of circumstances.
While a good lawyer will not hesitate to refer you elsewhere if they’re not well-versed in a particular area, AfricanAmericanLawyer.org can save you time by helping you narrow down the search and increase your chances of finding a good fit. We provide you with all of the information you need to find a good, African-American lawyer with the right skills and experience to address whatever legal issues you might be facing.
