Hempstead, NY, USA


Frederick K. Brewington is the principal of The Law Offices of Frederick K. Brewington in Hempstead, New York.  Mr. Brewington earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology from the State University of New York (SUNY) at Albany in 1979 (with honors) and a Juris Doctor degree from Northeastern University School of Law in 1982. He is admitted to the Bars of the states of New York and New Jersey, as well as the United States Supreme Court, United States First and Second Circuit Courts of Appeal, United States District Courts of New Jersey and the Eastern, Southern and Northern Districts of New York. He is a prominent member of the New York State and State of New Jersey Bar Associations, National Employment Lawyers Association, Association of Trial Lawyers of America, the Nassau County Bar Association, the National Police Accountability Project as well as other local and regional associations.

Fred has served tirelessly as the “People’s” lawyer and a powerful promoter of our nation’s highest values. With his expertise in civil rights litigation, he has successfully challenged the “at large” voting system in the Town of Hempstead and worked on preventing future unconstitutional and discriminatory purging of voters from the voting rolls. Mr. Brewington challenges other discriminatory practices as well—with a sustained focus on issues such as affordable housing, community revitalization, employment and civil rights, the environment and, especially, voting rights and fair representation in government. He labors against injustices through litigating, writing, lecturing, and through building relationships of encouragement among citizen organizations.

Among his accolades, Fred is the recipient of the Leadership in Law Lifetime Achievement Award from Long Island Business News, the Haywood Burns Award from the New York State Bar Association Committee on Civil Rights, the Abraham Krasnoff Courage and Commitment Award from ERASE Racism, the Diversity in Business Award from Long Island Business News and most recently, the William Gitelman Award from the Nassau Lawyers Association, Long Island, Inc. He was a guest speaker and panelist at the DRI Civil Rights and Governmental Tort Liability Conference in New Orleans, to discuss the handling of emotionally-charged issues involving police misconduct.

Fred is an adjunct professor at Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center, Touro College. He has had articles published in The National Bar Association Magazine, The Amsterdam News, Black Westchester and the Amistad Long Island Black Bar Association’s e-newsletter. He has also been a volunteer football coach in the Malverne School District for over 30 years and is happily married to Reverend Adrienne Brewington, a former attorney, who is now the Senior Pastor of the Poughkeepsie United Methodist Church.
