BLACK ENTERPRISE acknowledges many of today's top legal experts such as John Payton, the attorney whose work on this year's Michigan case upheld affirmative action, Johnnie L. Cochran Jr., who spent decades defending young black men in Los Angeles, and Willie Gary, who has won more than 150 cases valued in excess of $1 million each.
