Attorney Charles Brooks started with employment discrimination and civil rights issues. As the firm began to represent large corporations, including Birmingham Budweiser, and municipalities, including the City of Birmingham, the practice evolved into financial issues. The firm eventually played a role representing Jefferson County during a billion-dollar bond offering. The gravamen of the law firm included multinational centers regarding ethnic and/or religious disputes around the globe.
Attorney Brooks currently serves as General Counsel for the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), co-founded by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The aforementioned position encompasses the establishment of dispute resolution centers throughout the world. SCLC maintains contacts in Haiti, Israel, Germany, the Netherlands, Cuba and South Africa. The relationships in South Africa led to my private practice representing the Ama Ximba Tribe in Cato Ridge, South Africa. The leader is Nklosi Zibuse “Michael” Mlaba. The Brooks Law Firm, P. C. continues to work with civil rights leaders in Paris, Berlin and South Africa.
