The statistics regarding openly gay or lesbian attorneys are part of a larger minority survey sent to firms ranked in The National Law Journal‘s NLJ 250, an annual survey of the nation’s largest law firms, and to firms in the AmLaw 200, a ranking of the nation’s highest grossing law firms published by The American Lawyer, an affiliate of the NLJ. According to the survey, in 2006, minorities made up 12.4% of the attorneys practicing at those firms, based on the total number of U.S. citizen attorneys at those firms. Last year’s totals show a healthy increase from 2005, when minority attorneys represented 11.4% of all lawyers in the participating firms. Miami’s Adorno & Yoss had the highest percentage of minority attorneys, at 38%. It is No. 169 on the NLJ 250. The firm reporting the lowest percentage of minority attorneys was Phillips Lytle, a 173-attorney firm in Buffalo, N.Y. It is No. 248 on the NLJ 250. The firm reported that 3% of its attorneys were minorities. Among the firms in the top 10 of the NLJ 250, Latham & Watkins had the highest percentage of minority attorneys, at 18.3%. Jones Day had the lowest, at 10.9%. The survey’s minority categories included African American, Asian, Hispanic, Native American, multiracial and other ethnicity. Complete results of the survey will be available in the April issue of Minority Law Journal, an affiliate of the NLJ.
