Villanova, PA (PRWEB) February 12, 2013
The Pearce Law Firm sponsored the 23rd annual Stratford Friends School’s golf tournament on behalf of the school in October. Philadelphia personal injury lawyer, Edith Pearce, is an avid supporter of providing opportunities for all children to learn, including those children who learn differently.
Founded in 1976, Stratford Friends School is a pioneer and a leader in education for children who learn differently. Located minutes from Philadelphia, it is the first Quaker school especially designed to answer the needs of the intelligent but learning-disabled elementary school student. The students at Stratford Friends School are able students who have difficulty learning in a traditional classroom. They soon come to believe in themselves, recognize their strengths, and learn through lessons specifically made for them.
Philadelphia personal injury attorney, Edith Pearce, founder of one of the most successfully female-owned law firms in Philadelphia, The Pearce Law Firm, was honored to sponsor the golf tournament.
“This golf tournament is a major fund-raiser for the school, and we are committed to helping kids who learn differently in the Philadelphia area to thrive in this environment,” said Ms. Pearce.
The sponsorship of this golf event is consistent with The Pearce Law Firm’s focus, helping adults and children who have been the victim of personal injury or employment discrimination. Having represented many victims of discrimination based upon sex, race, and disability, Stratford Friends School holds a special place for Edith Pearce. Not only does she believe in and represent adults who have been discriminated at work or harmed by personal injury, Pearce is a firm believer that children should not be discriminated against because they learn differently.
Edith Pearce joined her husband, Judge Todd B. Seelig, as they golfed with the Stratford Friends headmaster, Tim Madigan. Many other business professionals and leaders in the community were on hand to raise funds for the school.
