Made up entirely of Black male lawyers, National Law Group is the first and only Black-owned national legal services company.

ATLANTA, GA -- National Law Group (NLG) has made history. They are the first and only Black-owned coalition of law firms that offers legal services to customers nationwide. Recently launched, the company is made up entirely of talented and experienced Black lawyers that have collectively won more than $50 million in verdict settlements. They have nearly 100 years in combined experience.

Located around the country in major cities like Baltimore, Chicago, Atlanta, Detroit, Houston, Indianapolis, Jackson, MS, Memphis, Washington, DC and more, the company has a reach to nearly 70% of all African Americans who live in this country. They offer their clients (individuals and families) affordable representation in nearly every legal area including: Racial Discrimination, Gender Discrimination, Age Discrimination, Family Law (Divorce, Child Support, Child Custody), Personal Injury, Criminal Defense, Bankruptcy, Wrongful Death, Medical Malpractice, and more. They are a full-service, one-shop stop.

 

Via their online presence at BlackLawyers.NET, their aim is to especially help African Americans because of the limited availability of legal assistance and resources thatÂ’s very common in urban communities.

"Our goal is to offer an affordable and quality legal service to the African American market," says Carlos Moore, president and managing partner of the company. "In addition, we want to be role models. It's important for young Black kids to see young Black men that can work together as attorneys across the country in one big, national company." Moore, who is a member of the national board of directors of the 100 Black Men of America, Inc., recently won a $12 million jury verdict for a former hoops star left a paraplegic after being inadvertently shot in a nightclub.

Other founding members of the company include: attorneys Bert Jennings, Bryan Wallace, Carl L. Collins, Carlos E. Moore, Jason C. Crump, John A. Moore, John W. Turner, Rodney F. Barganier, Ronald E. Dupree, Trent A. McCain, and Warren McKenna. They all met each other last year in San Diego at the National Bar Association Annual Convention, and were inspired after hearing Dr. Randal Pinkett speak at the Young Lawyers Division Annual Luncheon. After brainstorming about how to support each other, they decided to collaborate and form the only nationwide Black-owned law firm consortium. Just like that, history was made!
