Ebony M. Thompson
Since 2012, Ebony Thompson has worked as a litigator. She is part of the team of attorneys that represented Exelon Corp. and Pepco Holdings Inc. in their recent merger, shepherding the companies through local and state requirements to create the leading mid-Atlantic electric and gas utility.
Thompson serves as a moot court judge at the University of Baltimore School of Law. She volunteers with the Alliance of Black Women Attorneys, the Maryland Food Bank, the New Psalmist Baptist Church and mentors students at Frederick Douglas High School.
Thompson, who grew up in Baltimore, is proud of the fact that she has remained here.
“Instead of fleeing with the opportunities my community afforded me, I choose to live, invest and build in my neighborhood to create better circumstances for those who follow me,” Thompson said. “I instill in the students that I mentor that your destiny is not determined by temporary moments in your history.”
She holds a bachelor’s degree from Brown University and a law degree from the University of Baltimore School of Law
