Welcome to Minority Defense Lawyers. This blog is an open forum to discuss the preservation of minority defense lawyers and law firms. The “diversity” debate is now front and center in America. The results of the current debate will have a long-term impact on the future of minority defense attorneys and minority defense law firms. For a number of reasons, many minority defense lawyers are not participating in the debate. Some believe that their views will fall on deaf ears. Others believe that insurance companies and corporate america are simply “keeping hope alive” and that they lack a meaningful commitment to minority defense lawyers and minority defense law firms. Many believe that the debate is being driven by those least in a position to understand the plight of minority defense lawyers and minority defense law firms.
If you have a position on how the current “diversity” debate can be transformed into action which can impact your practice and others, please subscribe to this blog and participate in the date. Minority defense lawyers who remain silent during the “diversity” debate are surrendering the fate of their practice and the fate of their future to the unknown.
I look forward to communicating with you in the days and weeks to come.
