Greetings and Welcome to the SCBLA website. It is my pleasure to serve as the President of an organization with such a rich legacy. The South Carolina Black Lawyers Association has provided its members a forum to develop in the profession and opportunities to address various issues that affect the community. Some of the most prominent attorneys have served this organization’s helm. I am honored to be selected to serve and will continue to build on the legacy left by those who served before me.
African American lawyers have, for the most part, been included and embraced in the legal community and have a visible presence within the community. It is in the footsteps of the Trailblazers like Jonathan Jasper Wright, Donald J. Sampson, Matthew J. Perry and Ernest A. Finney that we continue to work to improve our community and profession. Everything we do for the African American lawyers and communities would not be possible without the support of our members. We need both your personal involvement as well as your financial support to achieve our goals and make our programs successful.
If you have any questions about upcoming events or ways to enhance SCBLA, please do not hesitate to email me. I look forward to continuing my service as your President!
