braddomo saiddo you need an attorney to be gay?In some countries, yes.
There is a law firm in my town kind of known as the "gay" law firm of the Detroit metro area. The Senior partner who has his name on the building is openly gay and is also on our city commission. One of their specialties is partnerships and partnership dissolution including property rights and child custody for gays and lesbians in a state that does not recognize gay marriages. You don't necessarily need a gay lawyer to handle those situations, but i think it might help.
Just one? My city is full of gay and lesbian attorneys including a partner at one of the biggest firms.
There are a lot of gay lawyers, but this firm is kind of known as the gay law firm. There's a few of those, but this is more well known because they are major sponsors of Pride Fest, AIDS walks, and other glbt events.
