Meet alum Alan Blackman
To win a legal case is great. To win a case and to have it become part of a published opinion is even better. Having one’s argument entered into the annals of legal history is to clarify the law and to influence the outcome of all future arguments. Some lawyers work their entire careers without ever attaining this goal.
Alan Blackman did it on his first case.

Meet alum Victor Gordo
At the age of fourteen, Victor Gordo organized his restaurant co-workers to battle management over unfair tip distribution. The workers prevailed, winning the right to keep and distribute the money as they saw fit rather than handing it over to management who kept a percentage. This first collective bargaining experience illustrated to Victor the power of people working together and inspired him to pursue a career that would help improve the quality of life of those around him.
