About My Disability – Lawrence Stadulis, Partner

“I’m a lucky guy.” In the first installment of our series, “Through My Eyes: I Belong at Stradley,” Partner Larry Stadulis talks about his disability and how being legally blind impacts his life. Instead of focusing on what he does not have, he chooses to focus on what he does have.

May marks the start of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. Join Stradley Ronon to uplift and amplify Asian American stories, voices and experiences – as well as recognize the challenges the community faces today.   

Stradley Ronon’s Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Engagement Group, led by its chair Michael Tang, toured Philadelphia’s Chinatown in honor of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. Our lawyers and guests took in the sights and spirit of this community through an on-the-street food experience. From visiting the historic Friendship Gate and learning about traditional Asian architectural style to trying various foods from several regions of Asia, our AAPI group immersed themselves in this rich culture.

In celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month, Stradley Ronon’s Diversity Committee and AAPI Engagement Group partnered with Macquarie Group’s multicultural employee network group Unity to present a CLE program on May 25, “Asian Pop: Understanding Influences and Overcoming Biases in the Legal Profession,” that featured a conversation with Emmy award-winning television journalist Nydia Han and author, screenwriter and cultural critic Jeff Yang. The Replay is not eligible for CLE credit. Read more...
