NNJLS Celebrates Black History Month

After over two decades in private practice, Kevin Brown decided to forge a path into public service law, joining NNJLS two years ago.

“It’s a way of giving back to the community who wouldn’t be able to afford an attorney in private practice,” Kevin says.

Kevin always had a strong sense of justice. Growing up in Detroit, his college-educated parents instilled in him the importance of education. It’s a privilege Kevin doesn’t take for granted.

“People died, people were tortured, so I could be sitting where I am today,” he says.

Reflecting on Black History Month as a Black attorney, Kevin acknowledges that the American legal system is not perfect, but it’s a lot better than a lot of places.

He is inspired by his work as a housing attorney, and the ability to change people’s lives.

“When I help someone who is about to lose their shelter, they are extremely thankful,” Kevin says.

His work at NNJLS is a way of giving back to the community.

“As a Black attorney, I have a duty to go above and beyond,” Kevin says. “It’s an honor and it’s also a responsibility.”
