Awarded the Vince Monroe Townsend Legends Award by the National Bar Association for historic leadership in the area of civil rights and designated as a “Game Changer” by Politic365, Gregorio (Greg) Francis currently serves as lead counsel for the historic Black Farmers case. This national class action suit challenged the ongoing disparate treatment of Black Farmers across the United States, resulting in a $1.25 billion settlement. Nearly 20,000 Black farmers or their descendants received the justice they had long demanded. Black Farmers is the largest settlement of a civil rights case in the history of the American Civil Justice system.
Francis began his legal career in 1994. He later joined and became a shareholder for a large Personal Injury Firm until 2018. Currently, he is the co-owner of Osborne & Francis, a Florida-based law ﬁrm specializing in personal injury.
