Christian values, determination, and more importantly the grit to serve others amongst mankind…

“As a native Detroiter, world traveler and seasoned jurist I have met many people in my lifetime. While serving the public I have learned to recognize those with intellect, extremely hard work ethics, true Christian values, determination, and more importantly the grit to serve others amongst mankind. These are the very qualities I felt exuded from Brian Banks, J.D. when I first met him many years ago.

As Brian shares his life experiences through, “It Had to Happen: The Agony of Success,” please know that everything you’re dealing with has to happen to get you to your destiny. My dream is that one day Brian will appear in the people’s court again, serving others. He is deserving of another chance to fulfill my dream and his.”

Brian I loved this book.

In fact I read it in one day. What I found most interesting is your youth and the dysfunction many of us face as children…. I never imagined the many challenges you faced. Yet still you rose to the top with no complaints.

These powerful words are excerpted from a 1963 letter Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. penned from the confinement of a jail cell in Birmingham, Alabama. 58 years later, his words are as relevant as ever. While we have made significant progress in the crusade for social justice, there are still advances to be made before we reach a place of true racial equity. As a product of both a low-income and a single-parent family, I am personally and keenly aware of the difficult choices that today’s youth face. I am intimately familiar with living in a home environment that was not ideally full of love nor conducive for learning and growth. In 1993, after completing the 11th grade with a 3.97 GPA, I dropped out of school. I was quickly introduced to criminal behavior and found myself well on my way to a life of crime. In five short years, I was arrested, evicted, and lost everything I had including hope and self-esteem. I realized that my poor decisions were altering my life, the reputation of my family and the course toward my career dreams. Before this, I saw a clear path – graduate from college, graduate from law school, [...]
