Our law firm has been selected by Law360 as one of the 10 Best Law Firms for African-American lawyers in the entire country. I consider that to be a very high honor. The firm was recognized as having the highest percentage of African-American partners of any of the firms included on the list. We have always felt that it was very important to provide opportunities for African-American lawyers. We have actively supported programs of the Alabama Lawyers Association, and each year the firm takes two or more law clerks from that network. Our firm believes that diversity is both necessary and the American way.
We have African-American lawyers in each section of the firm. LaBarron Boone was the first African-American lawyer to join the firm, having been recommended to the firm by the Dean of the University of Alabama law School. LaBarron was a tremendous addition to the firm and he is an outstanding trial lawyer. Kendall Dunson, another outstanding lawyer in our Personal Injury & Products Liability Section, was named Beasley Allen’s Litigator of the Year for 2015. He has served as president of both the Alabama Lawyers Association and the Capital City Bar Association, and served as the first African-American President of the Montgomery County Bar Association. Kendall says Beasley Allen is proud of its stance on diversity, but we’re more proud of the success of our African American attorneys. Each of us have distinguished ourselves as an excellent attorney, and an asset to the legal field.
To compile its Top 10 list, Law360 surveyed more than 300 U.S. firms with a U.S. component, about their overall and minority headcount numbers as of Dec. 31, 2015. Only U.S.-based lawyers were included in the survey. Firms are ranked based on three factors: the percentage of partners, both equity and non-equity, who self-identify as black; the percentage of non-partners who self-identify as black; and the number of attorneys at the firm who self-identify as black.
