"A highlight of my legal career"

L. Bradley Schwartz, Volunteer

"For me, volunteering at the Clinic has been a highlight of my legal career. Having represented sophisticated corporate entities for decades, it’s refreshing to take on cases that have such immediate and personal significance to the client.

When I can use my abilities to represent people who deserve and appreciate my efforts, it reminds me why I went to law school in the first place.”
