Detroit Employment Law Firm

Big Concepts And Small Details

In some situations, the big concepts are paramount: justice, constitutional rights and freedom. In business and transactional type cases, the details are equally important, as every contract provision must be perfect. By offering civil rights defense and business transactional legal services from the same firm, we never lose sight of any big idea or small detail in any of the many types of cases we handle.

If your rights have been violated, you need a civil rights lawyer who understands human rights and is attentive to every detail. On the other hand, if you need a business lawyer, you need one who will attend to every detail while never losing sight of your business plan. Contact us in Detroit, Michigan.

We never lose sight of what matters to you.

Two Different Lawyers To Form A Firm

We started this firm to serve the same community from two distinct angles. We provide our clients experiencing civil rights and federal and state employment law violations with aggressive, just representation, and we provide our business clients with sophisticated counsel in the context of a long-term business relationship they can trust.

Meet The Attorneys At Akeel & Valentine, PLC:

  • Shereef Akeel:

After starting my career as a Certified Public Accountant, with an MBA, I needed a change, so I went to law school. I graduated cum laude from the Detroit College of Law and started practicing personal injury and insurance law. Then the 9/11 disaster turned my practice upside down. Since then, my civil rights practice has grown considerably, and I am excited to defend your rights.

  • Glenn Valentine:

I've been practicing transactional law for more than 30 years and enjoy the detail and problem-solving aspects of my work. I thought it would be great to partner with Shereef, the son-in-law of a business partner of mine, to offer the community business, as well as, civil rights representation.
