The Law Office of Zulu Ali, a Black-owned law firm, has been named one of the Top 10 Law Firms in California in the areas of Criminal Defense and Immigration Law by Attorney and Practice Magazine.
When selecting the top 10 firms, expertise, awards, and reputation are all taken into consideration. This award is an achievement given to firms who demonstrate the highest degree of excellence in their areas of law. Attorney and Practice Magazine recognizes the significant achievements of those attorneys and firms whose practice elevates the standards of the Bar. Which means that less than 1% of lawyers nationwide will receive this award.
Representing persons accused of crimes, immigrants, and persons seeking civil justice in state and federal courts nationwide, the Law Office of Zulu Ali has expanded its practice to include representing persons at the International Criminal Court at the Hague in the Netherlands and the African Court of Justice in Tanzania.
The law firm was founded by its owner and principal attorney, Zulu Ali, a Tennessee native, former police officer, and U.S. marine veteran, who was inspired by the work and legacy of civil rights attorneys Thurgood Marshall, Avon Williams, Jr., Charles Hamilton Houston; and other advocates and leaders of the civil rights movement. The mission and philosophy of the firm is to advocate for changes in the law when the law is unjust.
Although the mission and diverse makeup of the law firm subjects it to immense scrutiny, the firm continues to be inspired by its mission to preserve and fulfill the legacy of those leaders and advocates of the past who sacrificed in order to make a more just society.
“I believe the mission of a lawyer should be to strive for change and challenge the courts when there is injustice. In our firm, we put it on the line despite the immense scrutiny and consequences we may face. But for brave attorneys and advocates who are willing to step out the box, we would still be in segregation or servitude if the laws and courts were not challenged. Many attorneys and advocates are chilled and neutralized because they are usually targeted, ridiculed, and subjected to reprimand or worst when they test the status quo, but it is necessary despite the risks,” Principal Attorney Zulu Ali adds.
