What do you have to be thankful for? That’s the theme of a Facebook contest being sponsored by The Seegmiller Law Firm in Newport Beach. Grade schoolers 12 and under are encouraged to submit their 1-minute video or written essay and 5 finalists will be invited to share their entries in the Thanksgiving-themed contest to be held Wednesday, November 27 at The Seegmiller Law Firm offices in Newport Beach (attendance at the luncheon is mandatory). The winner will receive a $1,000 U.S. Savings Bond and other prizes will be awarded to the other finalists.
To enter, simply visit https://www.facebook.com/TheSeegmillerLawFirm. All entries must be received no later than Friday, November 22 at noon. Also, entries must contain the name, age, grade, city of residence, school name, teacher’s name and parent’s daytime phone number.
“Thanksgiving is one of my favorite times of the year where we all take a look at our lives and express gratitude for our blessings,” said West Seegmiller, founder and lead partner in the firm that bears his name. “Oftentimes children possess a unique perspective on things and this contest offers them a forum for expressing themselves.”
Before establishing his own firm in 1981, Seegmiller served as a judge of the California Superior Court for 10 years. He has earned a sterling reputation for seeking justice for ordinary people including the underdog, the powerless and those who otherwise have nowhere else to turn. He has taken on such corporate titans as Coca Cola and Rockwell International and emerged victorious. Not one to leave things to chance, he even built an actual courtroom in his law offices where he hires mock “juries” to hear his cases before he tries them before actual ones.
