Maryland Attorney Kisha A. Brown Sets Up Referral Service Connecting Black Lawyers with Black Clients

From the moment she entered law school, Kisha A. Brown was asked by family and friends to make legal referrals. The requests persisted through her 15-year career as a civil rights attorney.

“Most people don’t really know lawyers or have them in their network — especially for Black people,” Brown said in an interview.

As she moved from job to job — with stops that included working for top Maryland political officials, like former Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake (D) and former state Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler (D), along with advocacy and lobbying work in Annapolis — Brown began to think more about how Black people could connect with Black lawyers, and vice-versa.
