At Former Lawyer, we believe that diversity, equity, and inclusion are not optional, and that inclusion and justice for all starts with each of us.

As a company, we are committed to listening and learning from each other and fostering a community that is inclusive of all lawyers.

We understand that sometimes we will get it wrong, and when we do, we will own our failures and make sincere and sustained efforts at repair.

We actively choose to embrace a posture of humility and empathy, recognizing that without these, diversity, equity, and inclusion are not possible.

Because we recognize the reality of systemic racial injustice in America and the ways that it has harmed, in particular, Black Americans, our company donates 5% of its gross monthly revenue to the Equal Justice Initiative.
