Born and raised in Shelbyville, Tennessee, the firm’s founder, Attorney Zulu Ali, is a former police Officer and U.S. Marine Corps veteran. In 2007, inspired by civil rights attorneys Charles Hamilton Houston, Thurgood Marshall, and Avon Williams, Jr., who used the law and courts as a vehicle to make change and protect all people against injustice, Attorney Zulu Ali opened the Law Offices of Zulu Ali and Associates, LLP based in Riverside, California, which is the largest Black-owned law firm in California’s Inland Empire. The firm focuses on representing persons accused of crimes, immigrants, victims of discrimination, persons seeking civil justice in state and federal courts throughout the United States; and defendants and victims at the international criminal courts at The Hague, Netherlands and the African Court of Human Rights in Tanzania. Attorney Zulu Ali and the law firm takes on extremely difficult cases and matters that provide an opportunity to make changes in the law, through the courts, when the law is unjust.
“We face immense scrutiny from courts and others for challenging the system. I am deeply inspired by the late great civil rights attorney Avon Williams who was jailed more than once for not kowtowing to racist courts in the defense of his clients,” Attorney Zulu Ali adds.
He is the Director of the Stop and Frisk Academy, which mentors and trains at-risk youth to deal with police encounters.
