Attorney Leo Herrera, of Herrera Law PC, attended Career Day at Virginia Road Elementary School last week on Friday, October 30, 2015. This year's theme was "Dress for Success." The students were asked to dress the part of the career or profession they want to pursue when they grow up.
Mr. Herrera spoke at three different sessions throughout the morning. He spoke in front of students in the 1st grade all the way up to the 5th grade. Mr. Herrera focused on 1) explaining what an attorney is and does, 2) how to become an attorney, and 3) explaining to students that they do not have to attend 1st tier colleges and graduate schools in order to achieve their dreams.
Mr. Herrera and Herrera Law PC are deeply committed to encouraging young people in the inner city of Los Angeles, especially minorities, to pursue higher education and obtain professional positions in the community.
