Continuing the legacy of Power and Dixon, P.C. as one of the most respected and oldest Black-owned law firms in Chicago, Berve Power, Jr. Esq,
became managing partner in 2002, as his uncle and one of the founders of the firm, Robert C. Power successfully transitioned the firm's leadership to him.
Attorney Power has honored the tradition and advanced the practice through focused, community-driven work and service.
Practicing law since passing the bar at the age of 23, the former intern of the US Attorney's Office, has a keen focus on civil rights. Power has been part of internationally noted cases, including The Ryan Harris Case, in which a 7 and 8 year old were wrongly accused of murder. The criminal case was dismissed due to lack of evidence against the Chicago youth. The civil case against the City of Chicago on behalf of the youth who were falsely accused, was settled in 2005 for $6.2 million.
