BENEFITING: LAW ROCKS INC
EVENT DATE: Mar 24, 2017
Matthew Umhofer of Spertus, Landes & Umhofer returns to the Whisky to rock for Women Lawyers Association of Los Angeles.
Since childhood, Matthew Umhofer has dreamed of being on stage. His dream typically takes the form of a nightmare that concludes with Matthew arriving at center stage having forgotten both his pants and his lines, to the aversion and mockery of the onlooking crowd.
Law Rocks has given Matthew the opportunity to live out this dream annually.
This year marks his fifth exercise in rock mediocrity. His past Law Rocks lowlights include forgetting the words to Don't Stop Believin', losing his guitar pick during a chorus of Livin' on a Prayer, and auditory desecrations of venerable classics such as Shake It Off, Gangnam Style, and No Diggity.
He is both thrilled and surprised that the organizers are allowing him anywhere near this esteemed event again this year.
Matthew will abase himself this year for a charity that deserves far better: the Women Lawyers Association of Los Angeles (WLALA) a powerhouse organization dedicated to promoting the full participation of women in the legal system. Unfortunately, due to scheduling conflicts and reality, Matthew has been as yet unable to secure Ryan Gosling’s commitment to participation in a duet-medley of songs and dances from “WLaLa Land.” Finger crossed, tho.
