Barry McTiernan & Moore is proud to join in the nationwide celebration of Black History Month, which honors the African-American journey to freedom while recognizing the past and present struggles endured in overcoming the seemingly never-ending fight for equality. As exemplified by Macon Bolling Allen, the first African-American lawyer in the United States to argue a case before a jury, Thurgood Marshall, who persuaded the Supreme Court of the United States to prohibit racial segregation in America’s public education system in the landmark Brown vs. Board of Education decision, and all of the African-American lawyers that seek justice for their fellow citizens, the contributions of African-Americans have been integral to the progress of the United States and in assuring that it lives up to its promise of equality.
As we celebrate Black History Month, Barry McTiernan & Moore acknowledges and appreciates the significant roles played by African-American judges and lawyers in the continuing success of our judicial system and the legal profession. The lawyers of the firm remain united in their strong commitment to creating and encouraging a diverse and inclusive working environment. We strive to do better each day and will continue our support of forward-thinking educational and mentoring programs as we join in the call for systemic change.
