Black Trial Lawyer Will E. Gary Named Clinton National Camaign Chair
The Clinton campaign announced last week that Florida attorney Willie E. Gary has been named as national campaign co-chair.
In July, Gary announced his support for Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY) to an audience of more than 200 African-American men who participated in an “African-Americans for Hillary” lunch meeting.
“Hillary is a champion of civil rights, and she cares about the future of America’s youth,” Gary said in a statement.
“I have much admiration and respect for her and believe her steadfast values, forward thinking and outstanding leadership is what our country needs in a president. I am honored to serve as a national co-chair for the campaign,” he said.
Gary has been recognized by numerous publications for his work in the courtroom and for his philanthropic works. He has been featured in Ebony magazine as one of its “100 Most Influential Black Americans,” and in Forbes magazine as one of its “Top 50 attorneys in the U.S.”
He has won some of the largest jury awards and settlements in U.S. history, including more than 150 cases in excess of $1 million each.
