Attorney Johnnie Finch went from a HBCU, as an undergrad, to a PWI, as a law student, which was a major cultural shift. The challenges that he faced during law school led him to journaling his experience. Years later, his journal helped him to author the book Black Lawyer Confidential: Keys to Success, a book that gives aspiring black lawyers an insight that Attorney Finch did not have entering the profession.

Attorney Finch practices in the area of criminal defense in North Carolina at the Law Office of Johnnie L. Finch, Jr., PLLC.
