The Executive Committee of The National Black Lawyers Top 100 unanimously voted Beasley Allen’s LaBarron Boone to serve as president to lead the organization in 2022. The NBL is a national network of top African American plaintiff and defense attorneys representing law firms, academia, and government agencies across the country. This African American legal brain trust™ provides members with an abundance of professional resources and opportunities to share their expertise, increase their knowledge, and build professional connections.
“I am honored to have the support of Beasley Allen Law Firm in my new role as president of the NBL,” Boone said. “The firm has provided opportunities for minorities to grow as attorneys and leaders and recognizes that when we succeed, the firm succeeds as well. I look forward to encouraging our membership to provide this same support to non-majority lawyers so that we can empower them to create meaningful change in the legal industry.”
As president of The NBL, Boone intends to organize and utilize the organization’s unique wealth of resources, making them more accessible and maximizing the benefits to all The NBL members. He believes that if the group engages and empowers its members, they will excel as lawyers and leaders.
“LaBarron is a tremendous lawyer and a dynamic leader who is driven to improve the world around him,’ said Beasley Allen founder Jere Beasley. “The National Black Lawyers Association will benefit from LaBarron’s enthusiasm, passion and leadership experience during the next year as he serves in the organization’s top position.”
Boone joined Beasley Allen in 1995 and soon became the first African American to make partner at a major law firm in Montgomery, Alabama. He has been affiliated with numerous professional associations and has been named among the Top 100 Civil Plaintiff National Trial Lawyers and The National Black Lawyers Top 100. He is also the recipient of numerous other accolades, including the Chad Stewart Award, the Marquis Who’s Who in America, and Lawdragon 500 Leading Lawyers in America.
