SOCIAL IMAPCT

“Our success is measured not by profit alone, but by what our profits allow us to do for others.”

Forming our law firm as a benefit corporation was a purposeful decision – it colors every decision we make as a company.  The marriage of business-building and community-building, and then leveraging business revenues to support social impact initiatives in communities, is both unique and aspirational.  We want our clients, communities, and industry to be noticeably better off having worked with Ebony Law or because of the work we do.  Each and every client of ours shares in that vision, and we thank you for supporting our social impact investments.

TESTIMONIALS

The attorneys at Ebony Law advise from the inside out.  They always take into consideration the impact of their advice on our people and business.  They realize they aren’t practicing law in a bubble but their decisions have real implications on our bottom line.  Other law firms don’t get this aspect.

C-Level Executive – Large Healthcare Provider

I’ve worked with lawyers on numerous deals and the reason Ebony Law is my go-to is because they provide assurance in the face of risk and certainty.  Their business knowledge and legal understanding combined with their strategy, timing, and understanding of people make them unique and the best at what they do.

H. Berger – Business Broker

Keenan is a businessman who happens to be a lawyer. For me, he translates law into English. I own a variety of businesses and investments and he has not only been my attorney, but also a trusted advisor and a true friend. Yes, gets the job done, faster and better, than any attorney I’ve ever worked with, but what I love is he cares about impacting people and communities more than any person I’ve known.

Working for profit is simply not enough; it never was.  I look at the world around us, in the “richest” country on Earth, and see the remnants of systemic racism, gender inequality, socioeconomic and racial discrimination, housing instability, unemployment, injustice, poverty, and an overall lack of justice.  These remnants are the underpinnings of a legal framework which created systems that limit access, opportunity and representation.  The results are obvious.  That said, I’m a businessman who strongly believes in the principles of business, particularly the ability to make a profit. So, the challenge was creating a model where profit and purpose could co-exist, and Ebony Law meets that challenge.

Ebony Law is a conduit of sorts, ushering in new, diverse legal professionals who equally value legal excellence and social impact.  We offer businesses – big and small – the opportunity to work with a more diverse, cost effective, purpose-driven firm.  We offer individuals a network of attorneys who understand and treat their needs with the proper time, care and attention.  We understand most firms aren’t built to serve both big business and the individual.  We aren’t most firms.

Ebony Law operates at the highest levels of business and industry to impact and serve those neglected by business and industry. Ebony Law comfortably lives at the intersection of business profit and social purpose.  It’s that simple. 

Commit to working with us, and we’ll leverage that commitment for the greater good.
