HEMPSTEAD, NY — Frederick K. Brewington, Esq., a civil rights attorney and Principal of The Law Offices of Frederick K. Brewington, says that justice has been served as a jury found three men guilty in the February 23, 2020 shooting death of Ahmaud Arbery in southern Georgia.

On November 24, a jury found Travis McMichael, Gregory McMichael and William “Roddie” Bryan guilty. Travis McMichael was found guilty of one count of malice murder, four counts of felony murder, two counts of aggravated assault, one county of false imprisonment and one count of criminal attempt to commit a felony. His father, Gregory, was found guilty of four counts of felony murder, two counts of aggravated assault, one count of false imprisonment and one criminal attempt to commit a felony.

Mr. Bryan, who recorded the shooting incident on his cell phone, was found guilty of three counts of felony murder, one count of aggravated assault, one count of false imprisonment and one criminal attempt to commit a felony.

"Today we witnessed how our justice system can work," Mr. Brewington said. "Unfortunately, for far too long and today, young, innocent Black men have been killed for no reason and their murderers have been allowed to walk free. While justice has been served today because of this verdict, we still have a long way to go in making our justice system more equitable. It is every person’s duty to not run from the historical realities of racism that continue to divide us, but to address them and engage with each other to solve these deep-rooted concerns."

A graduate of Northeastern University School of Law, Mr. Brewington has been practicing law for more than 30 years. He concentrates his practice on civil rights, employment discrimination, police misconduct and abuse and personal injury, among others. He is also an Adjunct Professor of Law at Touro College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center in Central Islip, New York, where he teaches Federal Pretrial Litigation and Trial Practice.

Prior to founding his own firm, he was an Associated at the Law Firm of C. Vernon Mason, Esq. He also previously served as Project Director and Chief Administrative Officer of the Community Organization Legal Assistance Project of the National Conference of Black Lawyers.
