The Anapol Schwartz Foundation announces open nominations for its Third Annual Anapol Advocate Award.
The Anapol Schwartz Foundation was established by law firm Anapol Schwartz, P.C., as a way for the firm to designate a portion of its profits to assist individuals affected by disabling injuries to lead better, more productive lives.
This year, Anapol Schwartz will honor an inspiring person who has enhanced the lives of individuals afflicted by brain injuries.
