A Statement on Racial Justice and Equality from Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll PLLC

June 8, 2020

The murders of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and George Floyd, as well as others whose deaths have not been as publicly reported, have once again exposed serious flaws in our nation’s criminal justice system and systematic racism in this country. This bigotry is reprehensible and has no place in a civilized society. Equally unacceptable are the actions to intimidate and suppress peaceful protests against racially motivated conduct.

These tragedies serve as a grim reminder that features of our society still permit this gross inhumanity. It is incumbent on our firm and our entire legal community to do everything we can to ensure the most vulnerable in our society have meaningful access to justice. 

We stand with, and fully support, those of us who have come together to express our sorrow and outrage and to demand prompt and permanent change.
