When it comes to knowing the law and knowing your rights, it is important to have a good lawyer. In Atlanta, you cannot go wrong by choosing attorney Mawuli “Mel” Davis of the Davis-Bozeman Law Firm. Davis is a self-described activist attorney who takes on hard social issues and represents many who would not normally have a voice in Georgia. Most recently, on behalf of the National Lawyers Guild and the National Conference of Black Lawyers, Davis traveled to Ferguson, Missouri. It was there that he witnessed firsthand what the residents were going through and detailed police abuses during the protest of the police shooting of Michael Brown.

Davis spoke exclusively with rolling out magazine about what was going on in Ferguson, Missouri.
