In the summer of 2014, the firm partnered with Step Up, an organization that strives to empower teen girls from under-resourced communities, and provided a paid summer internship to a Chicago Public High School young woman.   Former Patterson attorney Kathryn Walker, a dedicated and passionate member of the Chicago Board of Directors of Step Up, facilitated this wonderful learning opportunity.  Step Up enlists professional women from all fields to mentor teen girls to be confident, college-bound and career-ready.  For five straight years, 100% of Step Up seniors have graduated from high school and been accepted to college.
