As the law firm of Hupy and Abraham, S.C. continues to observe Black History Month, we take a moment to reflect on Attorney Llyod Barbee's life.
Attorney Llyod Barbee was an activist, a member of the Milwaukee National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and an influential lawyer. Barbee is well known for the fight to desegregate homes and schools in Milwaukee from 1960-1976. Barbee fought on these issues, as well as other problems, such as Brown v. Board of Education in 1954. In 1969, Attorney Thomas Jacobson, the firm was then called Jacobson and Hupy, began working with Lloyd Barbee on social injustice issues. Tracing these roots, Hupy and Abraham will always follow in Lloyd Barbee's footsteps.
Hupy and Abraham has remained loyal over the decades to Llyod Barbee's contributions to society by contributing to multiple organizations that uplift the African-American community. Some of these organizations include the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), the YMCA, the Milwaukee Urban League, the African American Chamber of Commerce, Career Youth Development, Heart Love Place, Children's Outing Association and many more. By doing so, the firm has gained perspective on the issues the community faces on a day-to-day basis. Hupy and Abraham is committed to providing support for years to come.
