Paul L. Langer featured in article "Lawyers face off for Mercy Home"
Below is an excerpt:
On Thursday afternoon, two Chicago lawyers exchanged blows — not in a courtroom, but in a boxing ring
Peter J. Birnbaum and Paul L. Langer were trading punches and practicing for their upcoming match up at the 26th annual Ringside for Mercy’s Sake charity event to benefit Mercy Home. The event will be held Oct. 14 at the Chicago Marriott Grand Ballroom on Michigan Avenue.
Langer, who picked up amateur boxing four years ago, said Mercy Home is such an important part of the community.
“It provides our youth with an escape from poverty, abuse or neglect,” he said. “It’s a great cause, and it allows us to do what we like, which is boxing and contributing to the Mercy Home … There is no greater cause.”
