Every community deserves strength
Everyone deserves to work with purpose.
The Banks Law Firm (TBLF) was founded in Durham, North Carolina in 1994. We have office locations in Houston, Texas, and Atlanta, Georgia.
TBLF has established most of the practice areas of a general civil law practice. We represent clients in the areas of affordable housing and community economic development law, business and corporate law, civil litigation, labor and employment law, and real estate law, probate, and estate planning. Teamwork between the attorneys and staff is the key to providing the best possible representation and service to clients in each of the firm’s practice areas.
Each year in June, TBLF closes for two days to provide the volunteers necessary for The Triangle Golf Challenge, The Banks Foundation’s Annual Celebrity Golf Tournament. The proceeds from The Triangle Golf Challenge provide down payment assistance for first-time homebuyers who have matriculated from public assistance to private homeownership and to other charities that we support.
Building success is at our core.

Letter from Sherrod Banks
The Banks Law Firm (TBLF) was founded on February 1, 1994, and has grown to be the Southeast’s largest minority-owned law firm for business clients and has offices in Atlanta, Durham, and Houston.
We are well known for our practice in affordable housing and community economic development law, real estate finance, civil litigation, colleges and universities with an emphasis on HBCU representation, employment law and municipal and nonprofit representation.
TBLF is diverse with minorities, women and other diverse individuals participating at all levels of TBLF as owners, attorneys, paralegals and administrative staff.
We pride ourselves in becoming active in the communities that we serve. For example, in Houston, TBLF is very involved in Houston Habitat for Humanity and regularly works on building homes with the organization. TBLF annually participates during the holidays with donations to BEAR...BE A Resource for CPS Kids as well as feeding seniors and first responders through Lucille’s 1913.
In June, we close firm-wide for two days to provide the volunteers necessary for The Triangle Golf Challenge, the proceeds from which provide down payment assistance for first-time homebuyers who have matriculated from public assistance to private homeownership. During the holiday season, TBLF co-sponsors a holiday event with live music where the invited guests support our annual toy and food drive for local families. TBLF is also very involved with the Triangle Aphasia Project Unlimited, Urban Ministries, and the West End Community Foundation.
Firm members regularly serve as adjunct professors and guest lecturers at local law schools as well as mentors to young lawyers, law students, and community youth.
We believe that every community deserves better and we strive to show that through our practice areas, hiring practices and charitable activities.
Give us a call or email, we would love to work with you as a client, community partner, or in some other capacity.
Founder, The Banks Law Firm, P.A.
