CREATING A COMMITMENT TO CHILDREN
- Recognized experts and advocates for children’s rights, the professionals of the Boesch Law Group have given back to children in many rewarding ways. Paul Petersen of A Minor Consideration, the leading advocacy group supporting working children, has said: “Every kid actor owes Boesch a debt of gratitude. He is concerned and up-to-speed on the surrounding issues of working children. He has more than I can count, given his time and treasure to the working kids in this town, and his handling of [Gary Coleman’s case] in a very difficult place is the stuff of legends.”
- Mark Abdou is a founding director of PLAY LA; Michelle Wodynski founded the Wodynski Heart Foundation to promote heart health education in children and young athletes; and Ben Johnson serves on the Board of Drive Kids To Be Fit.
