African Americans Flee Balch & Bingham; Austin Office Left with Two Attorneys

The death spiral continues.

After much fanfare two years ago, two African American attorneys have left the embattled and alleged racist law firm, Balch & Bingham.

Kimano A. Edwards and Ikenna Okoro, two rising attorneys (pictured above) have dumped Balch.

Both appear to have joined Balch in August of 2022, and lasted about 18 months.

Edwards has joined Morgan & Morgan in Jacksonville, while Okoro left Balch’s Austin, Texas office.


Joining Okoro’s exit out of Austin is Balch Partner Bryan J. Moore who was hired in June of 2022.

Moore’s exit was in the past month and has now left Balch with only two attorneys in Texas, an utter collapse of the once prestigious silk-stocking law firm in the Lone Star State.
