Who We Are
The Collective is a highly skilled team of hand-selected Black women Lawyers, Experts, Change Agents, and Problem Solvers, all with successful careers in their individual fields of expertise, who were tired of seeing people who looked like them being misrepresented and recognized the need for a better way to serve clients.
To provide exceptional legal and comprehensive crisis management services to families and individuals in need.
To provide a choice alternative to Black Businessmen, Businesswomen, Artists, Entertainers, Athletes, Celebrities, and others involved in high net worth or high profile cases currently represented by firms who care about your money but don’t care about you.
We believe the traditional practice of solely focusing on a client’s legal matter, while silently watching them struggle in other areas of their lives, does them a great disservice. Instead, here at The Collective, we prioritize overall client well being. Our innovative practices simultaneously guide our clients through the legal process in a way that achieves optimal results in the courtroom, while ensuring they are equipped with tools they need to handle any stresses, anxieties or personal issues exacerbated by their case, thereby safeguarding their interests beyond the courtroom. In doing so, we’ve shifted the legal industry’s narrow view of what legal representation should look like.
At The Collective, we are committed to handing all cases with utmost diligence, integrity, discretion, and confidentiality. However, our commitment extends beyond merely fixing your legal problems. We care about the client, not just the case. Therefore, our team ensures our clients are properly advised and have the tools to not only resolve &/or avoid additional legal problems, but also to face and overcome issues in all aspects of their lives moving forward.
Servicing individuals, families, and small businesses in need of top notch legal counsel, comprehensive expertise and care.

Comprehensive Counsel + Specialized Services
CRISIS MANAGEMENT DIVISION
The problem with traditional law firms, is that lawyers don’t care about what happens outside of the billable hour; meaning they care about the case, but not necessarily the client. The Collective, however, understands that legal issues have a tendency to detrimentally effect other areas of your life. Depending on the level of conflict, cases can to lead to anxieties or mental health issues, as well as trigger actions, which may jeopardize your reputation and livelihood. When they do, our team is there with comprehensive services to ensure you have the tools you need to safeguard your interests, not only inside the courtroom, but outside of the courtroom as well. In doing so, we step up where other firms fall short, helping our client’s navigate the collateral damage that often accompanies legal battles.
Our in-house team of highly skilled professionals is experienced in the following:
- Crisis Management & Strategy
- Mental Health
- Personal Development
- Anger Management
- Domestic Violence Education and Recovery
- Reputation Management
- Communication Strategy and more
Driven by more than just dollars, our team ensures our clients have the tools they need to fix what’s broken, both in and out of the courtroom, thereby positively affecting all aspects of their lives, long after their legal issues are behind them.
