More than 600,000 people marched in Washington on Nov. 19, 1969, to protest the Vietnam War. Fox Rothschild Firmwide Managing Partner Mark Silow, then 16 years old, was one of them.

That’s when Silow began to consider a career in the legal industry. "Growing up in the 1960s and early 1970s, it was a very politically intense time and lawyers seemed to be in the forefront of a lot of things that were going on," Silow said.
