Attorneys For Civil Rights And Business
Imagine one law firm, small enough to care for your needs personally while still providing you with varied and professional service. We bring two vastly different services to the community from the same law firm.
If you have a federal or state civil rights case or want a long-term business lawyer on your side, you can find the Detroit employment law attorney you need right here. Serving Detroit, Michigan, we opened Akeel & Valentine, PLC, to provide you big-firm success with small-firm pricing and attention.
In any case we take, we thoroughly prepare to go trial to fight for our clients' rights. We never settle for anything less until our clients are satisfied. In fact, we have collected millions of dollars in damages and compensation for our clients to vindicate their rights. Call either our Troy or Dearborn offices, or contact us online to see how we can help you.

We can handle all facets of your business's legal needs, including:
Big Results From A Small Firm
We stay small, to pay particular attention to our clients' needs, and expand by engaging other counsel in co-counsel arrangements when necessary. This allows us to keep our prices competitive. Especially for the small-business owner, it is good to know he or she can build a long-term relationship with his or her lawyer for a reasonable fee. We will be with you all the way.
Of course, even with this small-firm approach, we confidently take on the bigger firms. Whether the other side is a big firm or not, our philosophy has always been simply to work harder than the other side. That is what separates our firm from the rest.
Our philosophy is the same for our civil rights or business clients: pay attention to the client's needs, and work harder than the other side. This gives you big-firm results with a small-firm approach.
