April 30: Duane Morris law firm

Duane Morris is a national operation headquartered in Philadelphia on17th Street just south of Market. Once a year, they bring lawyers in from all over the country for their annual diversity day and Vashon lecture, which occurs the night before. This year,¬† Biddle and Dubin will be part of the activities, closing the day with a talk and reading from “Tasting Freedom” to the assembled attorneys and guests.

This is a private all-day event and I believe our talk begins about 5 p.m. at the law firm’s offices.

Video Introduction

We like to talk. Our publicist put us in front of a video camera, asked three questions and then crossed his fingers. We're probably a little too serious at the beginning, but we loosen up as the video goes on.
