Featured Testimonial

My Houghton experience helped me challenge my preconceived notions and biases. It didn’t make me think outside the box—it got rid of the box altogether! As an attorney helping hardworking Latinos solve their civil and business law matters, I am able to come up with creative and cost-efficient solutions for them.
