Bill Schwartz practices admiralty and maritime law in New Orleans as a partner with the firm of Baldwin Haspel Burke & Mayer. Bill is active in a number of professional and community outreach organizations. One in particular, A Child’s Wish of Greater New Orleans, grants wishes to terminally ill children between the ages of 3 and 18 in Louisiana. Several years ago, a family of one such child was staying at the local Ronald McDonald House. Bill learned of the RMH mission to assist families providing a “home-away-from-home” while the child is in the city for medical care and treatment.
“When I learned of the ‘Men In Kilts’ fundraiser to help RMH,” Bill says, “I was ‘all in’ to help a great cause (and because I never thought he would ever be seen in a kilt).”
