"Dean of Black Lawyers in The State of Alabama."During the first 30 years of his 54-year-old practice, Attorney Shores practiced all over the State of Alabama - from the Tennessee line to the Gulf of Mexico at Mobile Bay, and from the Mississippi borders to the Georgia limits. During the period roughly between 1940 and 1950 he was the only lone voice in the wilderness defending the civil rights of black people. Mr. Shores practiced civil rights law all over the state of Alabama during an era in which his life was in constant jeopardy. He represented such civil rights pioneers as Martin Luther King, Jr., Arthurine Lucy, Fred Shuttlesworth and Vivian Malone.
