Declarations: The Coverage Opinions Interview With Philip Hirschkop
The Lawyer Quietly Making Noise For 50 Years
Loving: Just A Spoonful Of His Career

Philip Hirschkop was just one month out of Georgetown when he signed on to represent Richard and Mildred Loving, seeking to invalidate a Virginia statute that criminalized their inter-racial marriage. Three years later Hirschkop argued and won the case before the U.S. Supreme Court. Loving v. Virginia is now the subject of a major motion picture. Hirschkop’s career went on for 50 years and is astounding. I had the privilege of interviewing him about it.
