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 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 you can trust.

Meet the attorneys of Akeel & Valentine:
   .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

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
