I am deeply saddened to have just learned about the leaving of my former attorney and wise friend Leo Branton Jr. He defended me. We were unsuccessful, yet he encouraged me, and by his warmth, conveyed that the judgment of others is neither final nor inspirational. Motivation comes from within. I would later go on to obtain additional law diplomas from abroad, and returned sobered, and more reflective to the practice of law. He was a giant in the legal profession, and a guiding star to all who dare to lift their sights beyond the judgment of man. True warrior!
The civi rights period was a tie of great concern for people of color. Mr. Branton was a champion for good and wright . The family has my deepest sympathy for their loss n much gratitude for the work Mr. Branton did. May God grant you the comfort needed to enduure.
Thank you! You will be missed but not forgotten as your accomplishments have left an indelible mark in society and uplifted a people.
Leo Branton was the best trial lawyer in America.

I am a Fisk University graduate and as Angela Davis is a part of our history, so is Leo Branton. I am saddened to hear that he has died. God has promised to help us in times of sorrow. Trust in God's promises.
My dear friend and mentor Leo Branton was larger than life until the moment he died. There is now a vacuum in the Universe. I will always miss his humor, his guidance, his intellect and his countenance. Hats off to William Yardley at the New York Times for a soulful obituary for an American hero.

Grief can be so hard, but our special memories help us cope. Remembering you and your loved one today and always.
To be honest, I had never heard of him. I REMEMBER his WORK though. Now spelled out for me, I realize who he was. What a brilliant and amazing legal mind and legal heart (you dont see or hear about those too often). My condolences to his family but please celebrate his life! (i wasnt but 2 yrs old in 1970 so forgive me for not recollecting his accomplishment on that one). RIP
