President’s Message:

In Observance of Martin Luther King Day.

In 1963, Martin Luther King, Jr. participated in the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom and gave his famous “I Have a Dream . . .” speech from the steps of Lincoln Memorial to a crowd of over 250,000.

Such civil rights leaders have influenced attorneys to do their part to fight against discrimination and violations of one’s civil rights. I am proud to have been a part of my firm’s unanimous landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision in Watson v. Fort Worth Bank & Trust, 487 U.S. 977 (1988), which allowed the application of disparate impact analysis in employment discrimination cases. https://supreme.justia.com/cases/federal/us/487/977/

Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality. – Martin Luther King, Jr.

Please take a break this week and read the very inspirational “I Have a Dream . . .”  https://www.loc.gov/wiseguide/jan03/kingjr.html or listen to it and feel the powerful energy at https://archive.org/details/MLKDream.
