Established in 1950, The Barristers’ Association of Philadelphia, Inc.’s purpose, then and now, has been to address the professional needs and development of Black lawyers in the City of Philadelphia through programs such as seminars, cultural events and publications. The work of the organization continues years later with ongoing efforts to support its mission.

Being a member of this Barristers Chapter has helped my business tremendously. Before I was dealing with ABC and now that I have a network of powerful attorneys at my finger tips, I can do LMNOP.
