Eastman & Smith Receives BLSA Honor
Eastman & Smith was honored by the Black Law Students Association (BLSA) of the University of Toledo College of Law at last week's annual Torrence R. Greene scholarship banquet. In 2009, the firm launched a mentorship program between Eastman & Smith attorneys and BLSA members. The program has paired approximately twenty attorney mentors and twenty student mentees. Heidi Eischen, a member of the firm's Labor & Employment group, accepted the award on the firm's behalf. Eischen has been actively involved in facilitating the relationship between Eastman & Smith and BLSA. First year associate, Joshua Peterson is a former BLSA president.
