The Capital Region has welcomed the first female, minority-owned law firm.

On Wednesday, Kimberly Wallace and Raysheea Turner opened their doors to the community, with a vision for Wallace Turner Law.

“We’re in 2022, we are the only firm like us and what’s more important is we are the 5 percent,” Wallace explained. “What that means is less than 5% of attorneys are of color.”

The law office sits at 134 Central Ave in Albany.

The attorney-duo said they chose the location for many different reasons, one being the history behind it. The building is the former law office of prominent African American civil rights attorney, Peter Pryor.

“Attorney Pryor had a legacy that he left behind,” Turner added. “Now we get to go in and be our own trailblazers, leave our own legacy that can hopefully transcend generations to come.”

Wallace and Turner said giving back to the community, helping the Capital Region grow, and inspiring others are top on their priority list. They added, failure is not an option.
