GRANT K. SCHMIDT

Grant Schmidt is an Attorney at Winston and Strawn LLP. Grant specializes in complex commercial litigation, intellectual property litigation, and white collar crime.

"To develop virtues and spread faith in Jesus, we must not get caught up in the urge to think globally or nationwide. Instead, our focus must be local. The Human Impact has reminded me that we cannot overlook the dramatic impact that just focusing on one human being can have on our community – and how that can, in effect, have an even broader impact in ways we do not even realize in our community and beyond."
