POTOMAC, Md., Oct. 2, 2023 /PRNewswire/ Shulman Rogers Law Firm today reaffirms its commitment to the growth of minority-owned businesses with the launch of Year Two of its Black-Owned Business Program. The Program will provide free legal support for a year to a Black-Owned business in the D.C./Maryland/Virginia (DMV) region.
Co-chaired by two Shulman Rogers shareholders, Kimberly Mann and Michael Lichtenstein, the Program is open to any business in the DMV that is at least 51 percent Black-Owned and controlled. Applications, available HERE, must be submitted no later than November 10, 2023.
The inaugural year of the program was a huge success and well-received by the minority business community. “The free year of legal services has been invaluable to me and my business, Wave Welcome,” said Vennard Wright, winner of the 2023 Black-Owned Business Program. “Over the past year, our company has flourished, launching products including PerVista, an AI platform designed to detect firearms in real-time.”
“We are proud to again offer this program to the Black business community in the DMV,” said Samuel M. Spiritos, Shulman Rogers Managing Shareholder. “Since 1972, Shulman Rogers has supported the businesses in our region through innovative legal services, community involvement and pro-bono work. This program continues that tradition.”
The Selection Committee, led by Attorneys Lichtenstein and Mann, will review each application and determine Finalists by December 1, 2023. All Finalists will participate in a Zoom interview with the Committee. A decision will be announced in late December.
