Echo A2


The first integrated law firm in North Carolina history, Ferguson Stein Chambers Gresham & Sumter, P.A. did more in its first decade to influence federal civil rights law than any other private law practice in the United States. From the landmark Swann v. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education suit, which paved the way for a desegregated school system, to cases defending fair congressional redistricting, Ferguson Stein Chambers Gresham & Sumter, P.A. has stood at the forefront of the fight for legal equality in America. Additionally, many Ferguson Stein attorneys have gone on to fill top political, academic and judicial positions across the country, furthering the firm’s mission nationwide.
