Leland Shelton, an associate resident in the Firm’s Baltimore office, is profiled in this article by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The article recalls Leland’s graduation from Morehouse College in May 2013, where former resident Barack Obama spoke.

During Obama’s speech, he calls out Leland to discuss his achievements. Obama also mentions Leland’s membership in the National Foster Care Youth and Alumni Policy Council and his plans to use his law degree to give back to the community.

"It was amazing," said Leland. "That moment is still very hazy for me."
